I have produced a film called The Bandit Hound and my lead actors is buried at the bottom of the credits list and changing the order has not moved him. This is his first IMDb credit and I need him to be listed first. How can I fix this?
The cast ordering will only take precedence over what is now, for your film, starmeter order once a "significant percentage" of the cast has an order number. So, adding a one to one person will not place him/her first above the entire rest of the cast.
Keep in mind that the order numbers should reflect the order the names appear in on screen in the most comprehensive cast list. So if the end credits is the most comprehensive, the ordering system should be used to preserve that specific ordering. So if you really want that actor listed first, you first need to list him as such in the on screen credits.
