Where is the right name?

I want to add someone to the cast list for a title, but it won't let me add the one I want. The name is Brent Jones and he has an IMDB page as Jones, Brent (XIV). When I add him to the cast it will NOT give me the (XIV) option. Gives me every other damn one, but NOT that one. I have tried editing him into the cast via his own page and it still will not give me the option. The only options I have is to create a whole new page for this guy who is already on there, or cancel the credit. So I'm a little miffed.

Joel: If we are talking about Brent Jones (XIV) at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4327183/, it looks like this would be his first acting role listed in the database. He has other credits as a director, producer, editor, etc. but none yet as an actor.

So when you submit him as a cast member, you may get a warning that says:

"'Jones, Brent (XIV)' does not have any existing credits in this section.
Are you sure this is the right person?
We have these exact matches in this section ..."

followed by a list of several other Brent Joneses, and then a list of other people with similar names.

But near the end of that list, you should see an option that says, "This is the first credit in this section for 'Jones, Brent (XIV)'."

Select that option, because it reflects the fact that this will be his first credit listed in the Actors section of IMDb.

If the problem is different from what I have described here, please provide further details.

I hope this helps. Good luck!
