Hi folks.  Brian McCall Pettis here - a couple notes - You recently added "VICE" to my profile - however it was the wrong "VICE".  I was provided my 5th SAG voucher on the Adam McKay film "VICE", 2017 (?), for two days shooting in Westlake Village (Ronald Reagan Christmas Party).  Originally signed on as BG for one day.  Got "promoted" to featured for several scenes as a visiting senator or politico of sorts then had a few scenes with Sam Rockwell, Cristian Bale and Amy Adams - not big by any means - and I went uncredited - possibly because I had started as just BG.  So I was hoping to have that credit on my IMDB credited profile.  This also happened on "Black Jesus", the TV thing - unfortunately I don't remember the episode, but it was shot around October/November, 2017 and also provided a SAG voucher (I actually had a line or two in that one.  This also occurred in 2018 on the shows "Big Little Lies", where I had a brief exchange with Laura Dern, and on Grey's Anatomy (4 episodes over 2 years) as a kind of featured doctor (2 shows), cop (1), and EMT (1).  Earlier, I also did an episode of Arrested Development where I had a brief conversation on camera with Henry Winkler on a jail-set - I don't know if this stipulates a change on my IMDB profile - but it would be great if it did!  Again, I'm guessing because I worked these shows originally as NU BG, so I wasn't on the original cast list, but by being "bumped-up to featured and to small roles with lines AND actually getting SAG vouchers for that and having lines, this would add to my profile.  As I am SAG/AFTRA now - I am looking to land an agent/manager and further my career - it's really exciting!!  At SAG I go by either Brian McCall or Brian McCall Pettis.  If this change is not warranted, that's totally cool - I'll move on.  I hope someone would get back to me one way or the other - would be great!  This is a recommended action for a prospective agent from Sovereign - told me I need to get that stuff on me profile and Resume. I'm still learning the proper ways and appropriate protocol while navigating Hollywood & the Biz.  THANKS!!

Hi Brian -

As per the linked Help page Jeorj posted above, you will need to submit the applicable credit updates through our online Update form.  If you have a credit listing for the incorrect title "Vice", you will need to request the removal of the existing credit, and will then need to submit your credit to the correct title.  Please also make sure that you submit your credit with the applicable "uncredited" attribute if your name was not credited on-screen for your role.

Concerning the additional series titles referenced, you will need to identify the exact  episodes you worked on for these shows in order to submit your credits.  Once you have identified which episodes you are featured in, you can then submit your credit to that episode and our editors will take a look.

Let us know if you have any further questions!
