My submission, 181108-234326-503000, to correct Ready Player One's cast list to reflect the actual on screen cast list was declined. Since this seems to happen every time I try to correct a major movie (and I have to wonder why I still bother!), I took screen shots for the commercially available DVD.

First up, William Gross should be credited as "Ten Year Old Boy" instead of "Ten-Year Old Boy". There's no hyphen in the cast list as shown below.



Next up, Josh Jeffries's ordering should be 39 instead of 38. If we agree that Kai Alexander is cast position 37, then cast position 38 should be empty as Gavin Marshall was previously credited and we skip his position, making Josh Jeffries in at 39.



Also, in the above picture, you can see that Bruce Lester-Johnson is credited as Bruce Lester Johnson and should have that as an "as" attribute.

Finally, you will notice there are no people credited as "Gospel Singers". You can see that the cast goes from Maeve Bluebell Wells at 55 to Ayne Leventis (who is previously credited so we skip 56) to the aforementioned Josh Jeffries (who is previously credited so we skip 57) to Neet Mohan. There simply are no gospel singers credited in positions 58 & 59.



Finally, in the above picture, you can see the correct order of the Elementary Kids. For some reason, McKenna Grace is credited first in this group instead of last.)

This cast is now "verified as complete" despite not making the changes needed to make it complete and correct.

Sorry about this. Someone else on the team will handle the specific issues here but separately, we are looking at how to prevent this from happening to you again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks, Col. I appreciate the response. I was really just whining a bit and since it was an expected outcome, I was prepared. Sometimes, I return DVDs before I notice the changes are rejected but the new tracking system makes it easier.

My bigger issue is that if the actor changes are declined, then so too should the "mark cast as complete".

Hi Adrian,

Thank you for providing these screengrabs. I have now made the necessary amends to the credits, these changes should be live on the site shortly.

Thanks
Meredith
