When building a list of characters, I can not figure out how to specify the exact performance I want in my list.

For example, I was building a list of Musicians: http://www.imdb.com/list/hRFO3Wogjoo/

I wanted to add Laurence Fishburne as Ike Turner in What's Love Got to do With It. I could not figure out how to add him.  When searching for Ike Turner, the only option comes up as (The Playboy Club (2011 TV Series), Adrian Byrd).  It seems to me that the only options given for a character is the latest performance instead of the specific performance I want.

Here is another example.  I wanted to add:
  1. Ian Hart as John Lennon In Backbeat(1994) 
  2. Aaron Taylor-Johnson also as John Lennon in Nowhere Boy(2009) 
But, when I search for John Lennon, the only option is John Lennon played by himself.  Here is a screenshot of the search function:



Is there any way to fix this?

I'm building this list to be a poll.  And, as I understand it, using a name link in the description should work when a poll goes live, but doesn't work in the list software.

Don't you add that bit into the description? You can use the [link=] markup to make the links live.

Dan Dassow is around, so can provide more advice on this as he helps out with the polls.
