I have a scene with Tony Hale and Jessica St. Clair in the Season 2 Finale of VEEP (I ask Jessica's character to leave and then escort her out of the building). My lines are included in the scene and I am very recognizable, but I am not listed in the credits. How would I go about listing this on my credits on IMDB?

You can probably get listed as uncredited.

I would suggest that you find the episode's page, click Edit Page, add your credit as usual and put (uncredited) in the attribute field.

It can help get the credit approved if you can get a screen cap of your appearance or if you have other evidence that you can submit as described here:

David Beeks, I'm assuming that this is your page.

Since you are not credited for the production, it will be may difficult to provide evidence that your were in the production.

If you have a call sheet for the production with your name on it, scan the call sheet and place the scan on a file sharing site. Provide a link to the file as evidence when you submit your credit. Since your name is not included in the credits, you will need to specify that you are uncredited.

Alternately, if you could get a copy of your scene from the producer's of VEEP and get their permission to post it online. Provide a link to the video clip when you submit your credit.

Once you have evidence regarding your part, click the yellow "Edit page" button on the bottom of your page.

pbn and Dan,

Thank you all for this information. I will try these options and let you all know how it turns out.

Dan, I was not on the call sheet as I started as an extra, but then they pulled me out of holding and put me into a scene (which made it passed the cutting room floor!.

Again, my many thanks for your inputs and I will return to advise you both on if it works or not.

Best regards,

David

As you got a line too, I wonder if it is possible to get that clip on YouTube, which you can add as evidence to support your submission. You definitely want to send them a screenshot of yourself in the scene through data verification, but the video clip would really help.
