Background extras -- uncredited

Post by NurseFran »

Does anyone have any idea where a list could be found of the recurring background extras? I would assume that, once a character has a line in the show, they are listed in the credits, but that isn't the case.
One specific one I'm looking for is a young, good-looking guy with blonde hair. I remember him in That's Show Biz when Ellie Carlyle is showing up Charles on the piano at the officer's club. He also had a line, "Remember, Father, some of us have a lot of money riding on this," during "Run for the Money." I've seen him numerous times, playing either a corpsman at MASH or a patient, yet he's never listed anywhere, and I haven't seen him on any other show.
Please help. :)

No connection personally. Just want to know and am curious why he's never credited, though he has lines.

Your links are just to the episode itself on the Internet Movie Database. The second link is not to Run for the Money. I've looked at every actor credited.
