My credit for "True Detective," as Sheriff Tate, has been given an incorrect attribute "uncredited."  I've been trying to correct this through the updating process and have been ignored.  My character was one of the first to be credited in the first episode.  I had two major scenes with the two stars, and my screen credit appeared clearly at the end of the show.  In this first trailer which ran a thousand times before the show aired I am standing next to Woody Harrelson saying "You ever seen something like this?"  Why anyone would assume or even suspect I am not a credited actor on this show is a complete mystery to me.  My name is Ron Clinton Smith.

  • Very frustrated, especially as an IMDB Pro member who deserves accurate credit information listed.

Instead of a trailer that doesn't show your name on screen, could you supply a screen grab of your name? Showing a trailer doesn't proove it's "credited." You could upload it here and give the submission ID number from your last submission.

My last update submission number to correct this problem was: IMDB update receipt #140228-193723-927000

Attached please look at this screen grab of my credit from "True Detective" 1.1 "The Long Bright Dark," which first aired on January 12, 2014.  I played an integral role in the show's first major scenes, and then had a second major scene with the two stars, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, in my (Sheriff Tate's) office where I am giving them information about their case.  Not only am I credited, but I should be listed much farther up in the order, at around 35.  Please remove the "uncredited" attribute on IMDB and IMDB Pro next to this credit and my character's name.  Thank you for your help!  --Ron Clinton Smith.

Dear IMDB Editors, 
I've provided you with a screen grab of my credit for "True Detective," 1.1, proving that I am credited.  This is the manner in which all screen credits are listed following this show.  Please remove the "uncredited" attribute next to my name and character now.  Thank you, Ron Clinton Smith

bluesman, thanks for your help.  I just received this e mail from you: You need to request changes on the online form, to which the proof can be attached. You can use your ID number from your last submission or re-submit the information now then add the new numbers here.

I'm confused.  I thought this was the online form where proof was provided.  Did you mean the standard updating form where credits are added?  How do I attach this screen grab proof there?  Or is there another form?  Thanks.

I deleted my comment because after posting I noticed you'd added the submission ID. You should be good to go. By form I meant clicking "update page" and filling in the forms...which you've done. Sorry for the confusion.

Great, thanks, so is there anything else I need to do at this point but wait for the correction to appear?  I truly appreciate your help.

Nope. Staff here can take a look at the submissions and let you know if there is anything wrong or missing, then it just a matter of waiting.

You're very welcome.
