I've just finished watching an episode (season 3, episode 10) of Fringe on Netflix that Christopher Lloyd played a part (Roscoe Joyce) in. However, the credits gave the actor who played this part the name Nicolas Ouellette. In your database, Nicolas Ouellette has a different face and no other information. Can you explain, please? Thank you.

The credits are correct:

Christopher Lloyd ... Roscoe Joyce


http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1635942/

Nicolas Ouellette plays that character's dead son:

Nick Ouellette ... Bobby Joyce (uncredited) (as Nicolas Ouellette)

There is something seriously wrong with the credit
Nick Ouellette ... Bobby Joyce (uncredited) (as Nicolas Ouellette)

That credit states that Nick Ouellette's name was NOT shown on screen, but that it was shown with the first name of Nicholas when it was not shown.

Someone needs to check this out. (I don't currently have access to the Fringe episodes.)

Good catch - my initial thought is that perhaps someone added him in and then someone switched it to an uncredited role later on.

Looking the episode up (for research purposes only), the credits are a little skimpy. As well as the main cast the only two other people given a guest star credit at the start are Lloyd and Michael Cerveris. It might be there are more complete credits... somewhere* but I'd be a bit suspicious about the other credits. If "Man #1" is credited then why not Bobby Joyce? He has a key appearance just before the credits roll and a line or two.

* Could there be more complete credits on the DVD release?
