GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
    "unfortunately" in the lead? "And he had starring roles in..." don't start a sentence with and. "In addition to this Morse was a guest star on Homicide: Life on the Street, as Detective Tim Bayliss (Kyle Secor) his racist cousin." I'm not sure who was the racist cousin of whom. "For his performance in the 1997 Off-Broadway production of Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama How I Learned to Drive, he was awarded Obie, Drama League, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Award." Award singular? Not encyclopedic voice.
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
    IMDB is not a reliable source, nor does Celebrity Wonder appear to be. Given his career, there should be better sources out there for him.
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
    per comments on 1, above, the prose clearly shows the primary author(s) is/are fans.
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
    Seems to have been changing a bit, although recent changes look more like cleanup than edit wars.
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
    Only one image, and that fair use. A headshot of the actor, not in costume, would be preferred and would add to the infobox.
  7. Overall:
    Pass/Fail:
    Fix the voice, the image, and the sources, and reapply. The article is enjoyable ro read, doesn't appear to have any BLP violations, but isn't up to GA quality yet. Jclemens (talk) 20:33, 5 August 2008 (UTC)
