(This is an original joke by Sean O'Connell, firstname.lastname@example.org; it was originally posted in alt.tv.babylon-5. I'm submitting it on his behalf and with his permission.) J. Michael Straczynski, the creator of the TV series BABYLON 5, was discussing computer generated graphics. He's just seen images of a computer generated character (an alien) that will appear in an episode. Joe mentioned an attempt to replace the words "actor" and "actress" with the word "actron"; this didn't catch on, but perhaps it could be used for computer generated act-nonpersons? Sean suggested they should instead be called "bit-players".
