It would be nice if someone who owns Heartlands could verify it is a different actor.


According to imdb this credit was just a joke:

But isn't Kimbo Slice the common name over Kevin Ferguson, eliminating the need for a BY?

According to imdb this credit was just a joke:

Is there any other source backing that up, besides this single sentence on IMDb.com? And besides: if we remove the birth year from the actual Mel Gibson, then how do you propose that we handle that particular "joke" credit in 'Heartlands'? I actually own a copy of that on DVD, and when we declare Mel Gibson's birth year as invalid, then 'Heartlands' will actually show up among the Mel Gibson credits in my database - while he obviously isn't in there. Joke credit or not: Mel Gibson (1956) never had anything to do with 'Heartlands', and I don't want it showing up when I look for titles starring Mel Gibson (1956). How do we best handle that?

I mean: it may be a joke credited as "Mel Gibson", but that still makes it a one-time credit - albeit a joke - of which the "common name", so to speak, is still Mel Gibson, which needs to be separated from actual credits of the actual Mel Gibson. So I think we still need the birth year. Thoughts?

I also think the BY needs to remain. You explained the reasons similar like I would have done.
We track also this fake credit so there's the need for a BY because it is a different (fake) person.

A good question how to handle this...

I personally would prefer to remove his name from the "Heartlands"-profile after a visually check that he does not appear at all, give the link to the imdb-source and let the screeners decide.

But then again, I don't mind having a birthyear for the "real" Mel Gibson, so I have no problem with the situation as it is.

Apparently he does appear in the credits as a joke by the makers of the film. That is the problem here.
Not sure how to handle this particular situation though.

BY is necessary because Mel Gibson (1956) is also director in "The Passion of the Christ".
There is another Mel Gibson (BY unknown) make-up artist, make-up designer in movies like Jude,  Hideous Kinky, Crust etc.

There we go: at least that make-up artist (in the database in titles like 'Jude') warrants the need for Mel Gibson (1956).
