Contribution #191014-205516-885000 was rejected because you were "unable to verify" BUT the information I gave can easily be verified by a search of the actor on IMDB. What's the problem? Also, I resubmitted the contribution with an explanation but don't know how to track that as I was only able to track the original submission. And I'm not really sure my re-submission is actually being reconsidered. Is it?

Exactly what guideline did this not meet? Spoiler: A character in El Camino changes his name to Driscoll and moves to Alaska. There is an actor (listed on IMDb) named Driscoll in the movie North to Alaska. Hel-lo. Do you not see a connection? How is this not relevant trivia? How is this not something you can verify? How is this not interesting to fans?

I don't see an immediate connection. What makes you think Driscoll, the character, is the same person as Driscoll, the actor?

That's not what I'm saying at all. Did you even see El Camino?  Driscoll, the character in El Camino actually goes north to Alaska. Tex Driscoll, the actor, had a roll in the movie North to Alaska (1960). Get it? I'm not saying it's the same person. SPOILER: I'm saying, that could be how Vince Gilligan selected to name to give Jesse. If he scrolled through the cast photos of North to Alaska, Tex Driscoll kinda stands out.

"That could be" is not a very compelling reason to think that is what actually happened. Unless Gilligan comes out and says "I named his Driscoll because of this movie", I agree this should be rejected.

The other way would be if Jesse is watching the movie inside the movie or mentions the movie or any other concrete reasoning.

I haven't been able to ask Vince Gilligan about this. Do you have his email address?
