Ok. my last problem with Gary Owens was solved since he did have several uncredited voice performances on his profile already. However. Now I have encountered a similiar situation where the circumstances are a bit different. Tom Jourden https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0431157/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 appeared in the same show (Sunset Beach) in 10 episodes as Dr. Eric Green, however only 9 has been approved since one of them was only as voice. Is it possible to make an exception of the rules in this case although he doesn't have any prevoius uncredited voice appearances? It seems a bit silly otherwise that 1 of 10 can't bee approved only because of such a tiny thing. The episode in question is episode 505.

I'd say we should wait what IMDb staff says on this one, but usually instances of this kind (actor in a series with a recurring or main cast role making cameo as the same character one already portrayed on the show or even a different character) are totally allowed cast credits. Examples include Quentin Tarantino in an episode of "Alias" and Susanna Thompson in one episode of "Arrow" and one episode of "Legends of Tomorrow" (as different characters although series are within the same shared multiverse and are by the same network).

Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your post.

I agree with Nikolay, in this instance Tom Jourden's credit should be eligible for listing as the credit could be seen as public interest due his previous appearances. 

I've submitted this on your behalf now - it should be live shortly. 

Have a great day.

Joel
