I need to find the common name for David [W.] Butler.  There are several David Butler's, the one I am looking at is http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124887/

I pulled all of his titles (based on his filmography) from the CLT.  And I have started us off by what I have validated the screen credits for.

You should note that "Law & Order: The Thirteenth Year" is not in the CLT yet.  I am in the process of auditing that season and his credit is there, so it will be in the CLt soon.

David Butler  3 Confirmed
Cop Land
Léon: The Professional
Night of the Living Dead (1990)

David W. Butler  3 Confirmed
Law & Order: The Second Year
Law & Order: The Thirteenth Year
Iron Maze

Unconfirmed 6
Dark Half, The (CLT has for both David W. Butler and David Butler)
Darrow (CLT has David W. Butler)
Law & Order: Criminal Intent Season 2 Episode 13 (CLT has David W. Butler)
Merchant of Death (CLT has David W. Butler)
Night and the City (CLT has David W. Butler)

Hate to be the tie, but I audited Iron Maze myself not long ago and it is David W. Butler as Steelworker.

Can re-confirm Cop Land and NOTLD90 as David, no other titles for him.

Well it is far from a conclusive thread at this point LOL

Not to make a too fine point of it,
but according to IMDb the David Butler appearing in Cop Land is not the same as the one from Léon.
And another one seems to be appearing in "The Bang Bang Club".

Not sure if this is correct though, since IMDb usually has severe problems with those minor supporting actors.
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

I have a David Butler in The Triangle also.
David Butler (IV) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124880/

From IMDB:
David W. Butler
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124887/
Cop Land as Davy - Scores Niteclub Customer (uncredited)


David Butler (VII)
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124883/
Cop Land as Thin Cop



So maybe there are two David Butler in the same film.

There could be two, in fact from the previous posts it looks like the David Butler that is credited is not the same one so I will remove it from the list.  It looks like "David W. Butler" is the uncredited one so it should not count to the common name

As far as the David Butler in "The Triangle", are you sure it is the same one for this thread.  Because IMDB has 35 of them.  Now IMDB has been known to have more than one name entry for the same person.  But for this thread we are only concerned with the one person (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124887/) unless we can prove that there is another entry that is actually the same person.  If that happens I can add titles to the filmography, but we need to make sure we don't mix different people.

I'm not 100% sure but I think that the David Butler in The Triangle is another person.

I have David Butler in the following 2 films:

The Prisoner from 2009 (seems to be the same as in Triangle and not ours. David Butler (IV)

The Bang Bang Club from 2010 (seems to be another one just only credited in this film. IMDB David Butler (XXXVIII)

Do we have any BY's to separate those many different David Buttler?

Merchant of Death as David Butler but invalid for this is another David Butler (1960) same actor as one acting in Cop Land. See BY thread here: http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=250804&PageNum=206&messageID=2445239#M2445239

Credit David Butler in "Merchant of Death" visual checked on internet.
Corrected profile in CLT which is pending now.
