I wasn't sure if the three stuntmen with named roles should be included in the cast, but since they are listed under stunts I decided not to do that.

What are your views - right or wrong?

This isn't likely to result in any kind of consensus, but personally, I'd be tempted to enter those three that get role names ("Guard #1", "Swat #1", "Swat #2"), but much more importantly I certainly don't want the others. So if I had to choose between all or nothing, then it'd definitely be nothing. Under no circumstance whatsoever will things like stunt doubles, "Stunt Coordinator" or "Utility Stunts" ever enter my database.

Just to be clear, all was never an option for me.

I think you're right not to include them, but if you'd wanted to include them, I'd also have agreed with that.  They have role names, so they're cast members.

But none of them is a much easier option.

another tyhing you want to be sure of would be is there already cast members for  Gaurd #1, SWAT #1 and SWAT #2 in the credits? So what I would look for is if they are doing the stunts for other cast members or actually playing the part. Even though I would doubt it with parts like those... you just never know anymore.

I, too, would be tempted by the 'Guard #1', 'Swat #1' etc.
But they're all listed under stunts, so I wouldn't put any of them in.

This isn't a perfect system but I've been adding them when they've been intermingled with the cast and leaving them out when they've been listed in a Stunts and/or Crew section. Not a perfect system given that the cast version might be comparable in terms of work done, but that way I'm not changing the cast section as much from how it appears in the credits.
