I have a supporting/actual speaking role that is 4 minutes long in the film "Uncle Drew" that made the final cut and played in theaters worldwide. I even appear on the screen credits. I appear as (unaccredited) on IMDB, please help me out. I submitted these changes numerous times and no results.

Here is the number and screen grab. In the actual script my name was “Jay (Player 1)”. If you watch my scene you will also see proof. I can send the whole actual video clip is needed.

Hi Phil -

Thanks for posting the screen grab of the credit listings.  I have now removed the "uncredited" attribute and the change should be live on the site shortly.  Cheers!

Thanks much appreciated.. I am also having a problem removing a few filmography credits. I was falsely placed in projects that I did not work on.

@Ed, that's the level of support of a help desk staffer that does not surprise me.

It looks like another actor was "uncredited" as well despite having an order number. I've removed the uncredited for Elijah Everett.

Phil: Why are you trying to remove those 2 projects? Did you not do those jobs? Do you know who did do the jobs so they can be credited instead of you?

If you provide full details, the contributors and/or staff may be able to advise you better.

I did not do those jobs correct. They both fell through.

Hello Will,

I am telling you that I was casted but never shot the projects. That is a fact. Please remove from my IMDb profile. I have tried submitting numerous times and nothing. If someone falsely placed an actor for their market value, something should be able to be done. Thank you.

They will not reverse their decision.
There are lots of listings for actors that for some reason or another have their scenes deleted. Or they were hired, then fired because the director said he could not work with a stubborn actor or for whatever reason. They were attached to a project and that is a matter of fact. You have this same distinction. Their listings remain as shall yours.
No amount of pleading will reverse the fact that you were attached to the project. You have admitted this fact. It is undisputable due to your own disclosure here.


Maury Ginsberg Maury Ginsberg ... Video Store Clerk (DVD deleted scenes)

You see where it says "deleted scenes"
You can submit a data correction to your credit that in the attribute box says (scenes not filmed)
Cheers

Deleted scenes (from DVD/Blu-ray etc) are not added to Cast-section. They belong to Trivia. So this ”Video store clerk” credit (example) should probably be removed.

If the scenes are deleted from the movie/series altogether, the actor won’t appear in the project. This means = no credit.

Eboy as unfortunate as it is (in my humble opinion) you are correct. 

However since recent expansion of what is considered an eligible title on IMDb deleted scenes may be added as their own titles in case they were released on Blu-Ray or elsewhere. Some examples: 
Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope - Deleted Scenes (2011)
Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief: Deleted Scenes (2015)
No Escape: Deleted Scenes (2015)
The Day After Tomorrow: Deleted Scenes (2004)
Sabotage: Deleted Scenes (2014)

It actually makes a lot of sense, if you think about it.

Yes and no: it can make sense if they are exploited altogether as a single short.
But actually it does not if you consider that they do not rely on a dedicated script, and moreover the content does not stand alone, it only exists because of the existing reference film from which they were deleted. A kind of parasite, in a way.

As a parallel, a trailer has its own logic and purpose, and stem from a reasoned editing of existing material. But concatenated deleted scenes do not build up a visual work.

My 2 cents.

I was never hired in the first place. I literally said NO to the project. I was never attached to begin with. How can a producer or director get away with just adding actors to a project that will give their project more credibility?

In that case anyone can produce a film and attatch any actors with huge market value and walk off in the sunset..

There has to be something that can be done here? I am sure there is a solution to an actor that is attached to a project that NEVER had anything to do with a project... I would appreciate someone’s response on this.

Best,
Phil Ductan

Phil Ductan I have a feeling we might have a problem with people adding their project in early stages of development and then either abandoning both page and project or updating project once in a blue moon (at best). 

Been there, sometimes takes ages to remove, unfortunately, but is achievable.

Vincent Fournols, for each thesis there's anti-thesis. It could be argued that deleted scenes have a script - one of original movie. That and there are cases like Twin Peaks: Missing Pieces (2014), which basically made a new movie out of deleted scenes from Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992)

Yes of course, but I think you actually confirm my point: the outcome is consistent, like "Dead men don't were plaid".
But in the examples you shared, we have just a concatenation of disjointed scenes which do not build a structured story. Their only raison-d'être is to have been deleted from the main corpus. Their existence shouod rather be listed in the trivia section, but not as a specific show.

@Nikolay Yeriomin

Thanks for the clarification, much appreciated. How do you suggest I attack the situation? Do I keep writing here? Or do something else?

If the person who created the projected removed me, would that get my name down?

Phil Ductan I think it might be a good idea to open a separate thread for that problem (as this one was about your credit on Uncle Drew) and specify exactly which projects are not affiliated with you.
