Jeffrey Epstein is now in the news, but I'm surprised we don't have an IMDb page for him. Hasn't he appeared on a news program or a talk show?

This Jeffrey Epstein is not the notorious one.

This Jeffrey Epstein, given a thanks credit on a documentary, could be the right one, but I can't be sure. Anyone know?

J.: I would not assume that Jeffrey Epstein (II) is the notorious one. In fact, I think it's unlikely.

Jeffrey Epstein (II)'s only credit is "special thanks" on The Business of Being Born, which was directed by Abby Epstein. Consequently, I think it's likely that Jeffrey Epstein (II) is a relative of Abby Epstein. But I can't find any evidence that Abby the director and Jeffrey the financier/sex offender are related.

Furthermore, there are dozens of people named Jeffrey Epstein in the U.S. (at least, based on a LinkedIn search for the name).

So if you find any news programs where the financier/sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is included, I would recommend submitting him to IMDb as a new Jeffrey Epstein, who currently would be Jeffrey Epstein (III).

There is now an IMDb name page for the financier/sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, as Jeffrey Epstein (III):

Someone with a scorecard has an IMDb Pro account. If they do not keep their account active, bye bye photos. It could have been uploaded by a disgruntled actress or someone from a talent agency. We are speculating. But Jeorj's hypotheses is as good as any.

J.:  I don't think anyone paid IMDb to submit Epstein's photo. I notice that the Jeffrey Epstein photo is courtesy of Getty Images. I understand that IMDb licenses a large number of photos from Getty Images, and so this photo was probably picked up by IMDb pursuant to the general image license.

Interesting.

I'm curious about this because I'd love to add a profile picture myself to any number of name pages without one. Maybe someday we'll have that ability.

I've inadvertently done it before, just by tagging people in IMDb Title Scorecard uploads or old IMDb Publicity Photo uploads. However, no mechanism is provided to correct the selections of which non-IMDbPro image, and the IMDb staff will not perform a reassignment unless the thumbnail rendition of the image does not show the person to whose IMDb name page the image appears as a profile picture.
