Add film information to Platoon
This page lists everyone currently associated with this title (if any), together with spaces for you to submit someone new. Click here for a cast listing if you want to double check spellings - names MUST be spelled and capitalised correctly.
This isn't supposed to be a full cast list, just a few of the the most prominent actors/characters - as such not everyone nominated will get online. If you need to submit more than 5 names, just repeat the process after submitting the first batch.
If you've changed your mind, you can go back to Platoon.
