I have a problem finding a common name for actor Michael C. Williams (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0931321/) who is also sometimes credited as Michael Williams, Mike C. Williams and Mike Williams.

I don't know how to figure out what his most-used name is, because if I search for "Michael Williams" in CL, then also the three other actors by that name are found.

So I guess the right procedure would be to ask you how this actor is credited in your releases. I only can verify his credit in "The Blair Witch Project".

For now I have used the data from IMDb.

Michael Williams (1 confirmed)
-The Blair Witch Project (Confirmed by Discostu)

Michael C. Williams (1 Confirmed)
- Altered (Confirmed by bigdaddyhorse)
- Law & Order (Episode 10x12)
- Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Episode 10x13)
- Long Story Short
- Montclair
- The Midnight Drive in Presents: Stay Out of the Woods
- The Objective
- Twelve City Blocks
- Without a Trace (Episode 1x15)

I just realized I had titles from the IMDb in here that are not part of the Invelos database. So we only have one title remaining that could either lead to a tie or to a common name:

Michael Williams (1 confirmed)
-The Blair Witch Project (Confirmed by Discostu)

Michael C. Williams (3 Confirmed)
- Altered (Confirmed by bigdaddyhorse)
- Law & Order (Episode 10x12) (Confirmed by AiAustria)
- The Objective (Confirmed by Behemot and AiAustria)

Mike C. Williams (2 Confirmed)
- Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (Episode 10x13) (Confirmed by AiAustria)
- Without a Trace (Episode 1x15) (Confirmed by bbbbb)

Mike Williams
- Sally

I just checked the Profiles for Sally

There are three of them. One clearly listing IMDB names (Michael Weston in the male main role) delivers Michael Williams. The other two profiles list Mike Williams as Lap.

Conclusions:
a) most probably he is credited as Mike in this feature.
b) he is either credited as Mike or Michael - without the middle initial - which makes Michael C. Williams.

I understand your reasoning but "most probably" is not enough for me to make this a confirmed credit. But even if we get a tie between "Michael C." and "Mike C.", the CLT results will make Michael the common name:

Michael C. Williams: 12|35
Mike C. Williams: 8|28

So I agree, Michael C. Williams is the common name.
