This thread is to determine the common name of Tom McCarthy aka Thomas J. McCarthy, a character actor who has appeared in TV and film. There are several Tom McCarthies in the database - each with multiple credited names and none with accepted birth years. Hopefully this will help determine which ones may require birth years.

Mannequin: Thomas J. McCarthy
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

Cool. I hadn't seen that.

Are we able to call this in favor of Tom McCarthy as this guy's common name? Despite being fairly prolific, much of his work isn't available on home video and likewise doesn't appear in the database. I did see he is supposedly in a season 8 episode of Law & Order, but there is no cast assigned to that profile.

Do all three Tom McCarthies require BYs, or how do we decide which ones get them? Tom McCarthy (1966) is a cast and crewmember so his BY should prevent most of the confusion. But as far as I know, the rules state no distinction should be made in regards to cast vs. crew. So there would be 3 individuals with a confirmed common name of Tom McCarthy. Do all 3 get BYs?

EDIT: I see the sound editor Tom McCarthy does not have a known birth year. So should this Tom McCarthy be given a BY?

My primary purpose for getting to the bottom of this is I'm doing an audit of the cast for The Wire: Season 5, in which both Tom McCarthy (1966) and this Tom McCarthy appear, both playing newspaper staff members. I was the one who submitted the initial cast a few years ago and realized I hadn't done a great job back then.

On the basis of the CLT results, Tom McCarthy appears to be the common name for the three guys, so we should have valid BYs for each one. For the sound editor we can use locally a fake BY.
