IMDB has an entry for J. W. Perra
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0674501/

but also there is information that it's a made up pseudonym for movies directed by "Robert Talbot" and written by "Benjamin Carr"

and in case of Head Of The Family it's Michael Citriniti for Myron, and he is also Squidgy from Mystery Monsters

what to do with that information?

also there is a demo reel from someone who is probably Michael Citriniti taking ownership of JW Perra in Head of the family and Mystery Monsters

If it is a collective pseudonym (it seems so), it may have its own page, as in case with Alan Smithee. Especially since, it seems that most of the roles credited to this name are heavy make-up creature effects.

Hi agof -

To clarify, you believe that "J.W. Perra" is a pseudonym for "Alan Smithee", is that correct?

If you are certain that the page is a pseudonym for an existing individual listed on the site, you will need to submit a Name Merge request for our editors to take a look.

Because someone merged them when they shouldn't have.

agof, because they do have pages. It is known that Robert Talbot IS Charles Band and Benjamin Carr IS Neal Marshall Stevens. Since in this case their identities behind-the-scenes were confirmed numerous times and pseudonyms were not used by multiple people as far as we know, they're considered alternate names of Band and Stevens, respecitvely. I

The right solution in this case should probably be like this: J.W. Perra remains as is. Michael Citriniti receives uncredited cast listings in Head of the Family (1996) and Mystery Monsters (1997), albeit I will research further to find more confirmations of that, because so far I did some and I can't find any information on Perra being Citriniti anywhere: it would have been nice of you to provide any sources of that: behind-the-scenes documentary, maybe?.. J.W. Perra may or may not receive a "(credit only)" attribute, or, better yet, situation gets specified in trivia on both his and movie's page. 

Ed Jones (XLIX), no, in this case nothing seems to be merged erroneously.

Cool. I looked at the supposed "Why don't the have separate pages" quote by agof and saw the same thing too. There has to be a point when you get tired of looking at things he claims exist only to find that his statements are not true. I reached it with that one. I gave up. EBoy has given up trying to help agof. I stuck in as long as I can. Getting valid information on which you can help him had gotten beyond frustrating. That is why staff just marks his posts acknowledged, and gives canned advice and moves on. They have given up also.
Thanks, Nikolay

agof, I believe official demo reel counts... I wanted to add the listings straight away, but then I decided to re-check one more thing. Hopefully it will come up in a few days and we'll see.
