Seen list for an actor has fewer titles than their filmography

This list has 292 titles:

https://www.imdb.com/seen/nm0004730/

while this list has 1452 titles:

https://www.imdb.com/filmosearch/?sort=year&explore=title_type&role=nm0004730

I think that an episode (maybe any title type) doesn't appear on the Seen list without a release date.

Seems like that's a bug.

Hi bderoes & All -

I'm following up here to confirm that the "All Roles" All roles" filter should now include all credit types in the filter, including "self".

Thanks again for reporting and let us know if you encounter further issues with the feature!

Orson Bean has these credits:

Actor (107 credits)
Writer (1 credit)
Soundtrack (1 credit)
Thanks (2 credits)
Self (85 credits)
Archive footage (5 credits)
= = =
Total 201

This appears to conflict with both:

This list has 292 titles:

https://www.imdb.com/seen/nm0004730/

while this list has 1452 titles:

https://www.imdb.com/filmosearch/?sort=year&explore=title_type&role=nm0004730

Dan, you seem to be taking your numbers from the summary of his role types. Those do not include individual episodes.

And his Seen list does have _some_ episodes.

There are another 1,026 titles if you select Self, so apparently All Roles doesn't include all roles.

If titles without release dates are excluded, that would follow the same logic as when you can't rate a title without a release date.

@Peter_pbn@bderoes 

Thanks for flagging this. As you've both illustrated, it does appear that the "All Roles" option/filter is only displaying "Actor" credits. I'll have the team take a look to see if we're able to remedy.
