Cast section[edit]

The cast section is laid out to provide a simple list of the actors and their roles for easy navigation. It is also laid out to reduce extraneous white space in the article that exists when it is just one column. In addition, the margins are lined up for easy reading. Cast lists in undeveloped film articles are single-column bulleted lists so they can be edited with ease, but this developed article is just about complete in terms of casting coverage. After the list of actors and their roles, the main ones are discussed in prose. This is in contrast to the "fat bullet" presentation before. Erik (talk | contribs) 12:12, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Starring[edit]

Regarding the "Starring" field in the infobox, it is most appropriate to identify just McKellen and Renfro. We need to avoid listing names in the infobox indiscriminately per WP:IINFO, and for this particular film, the other actors are indiscriminate compared to these two. This is reflected by a lack of coverage of these actors in the body of this Good Article. Per WP:IBX, the purpose of an infobox is "to summarize key facts in the article in which it appears". The film infobox guidelines state to use the billing block as a guideline, and this is because there has been certain edit warring about the cutoff point when it comes to a larger main cast. For films like this one, it is more straightforward to surmise the starring roles since there is a significant gap between McKellen/Renfro and the others in a story-wise and real-world context.
