Hello, I have been attempting for months (as had my associate producer) to replace an actor who was not in my movie, but had a similar name with the actual actor in my movie. It has yet to be corrected. Here is my last attempt:

Hi Ethan -
Thanks for posting the screen grab, the credit has now been corrected to reflect the on-screen credit:
Dodd Boy - Joseph Giles - (as Joseph "J.R." Giles)

This is incorrect. Joseph "J.R." Jiles is a totally different human than the person you have credited. Joseph Jiles is NOT Joseph "J.R." Jiles. Please, I have been attempting to explain - these are different people. The soul credit for Dodd Boy #3 goes to Joseph "J.R." Jiles. It is a first credit in the actor category for this person. Thank you.

This is NOT a name merge.  See that guy you have credited in the middle, Joseph Jiles? He was not in the movie.  Again, the soul credit for Dodd Boy #3 goes to Joseph "J.R." Jiles. It is his first credit in the actor category. Thank you.

So, just to make things clear - is this what you mean?

1. The real credit should go to an actor named Joseph "J.R" *J*iles (note the J not G) 
2. Joseph Giles is NOT Joseph J.R Jiles

Am I correct?

2. Joseph Giles is NOT Joseph J.R Giles

This is correct. (Thank you for catching that, Richard Shepard.)

Hi Ethan -

Thanks for clarifying the issue, the credit has now been moved to a separate new listing under "Joseph J.R. Giles": https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10647440/

Cheers!
