In The Watch (2012), Billy Crudup plays a creepy neighbor. He has a lot of dialog, and several important/pivotal scenes in which he directly interacts with the main characters. Why was he not credited in the movie? (IMDB only shows his name in a special "uncredited" cast list.)

  • Best guess is that his role was a cameo but with load of improv that they decided to keep in the film

  • @Catija - It is a bit broad and blanketing, I admit. That's why I thought I'd leave it to others to drop the hammer
