I propose this page be renamed to "And Credit". This is because it's pretty rare these days for the ending credit to say "and starring", like it mostly did in the sixties, seventies and eighties. These days it's "and Eriq La Salle" or "and Dennis Haysbert" or "and Martin Sheen", etc.

It seems to me that the "and staring actor#5 as ...." is often used for the slightly strange character or outsider (sixth ranger, wacky comic relief, etc). Has ayone else thought this, or am I just imagining it?

I first noticed credits that put the most experienced, most respected (and yes, usually oldest) member of the cast last when L.A. LAW credited Richard Dysart last as Leland Mc Kenzie.

I've always called the last credit the "EG Slot," "EG" being the acronym for Eminence Grise.
