Totally by chance, I found I had a duplicate actor Charles "Charlie" Chaplin in my movies, one going under Charlie Chaplin, the other as Charles Chaplin.

Anyone of you with a few of his movies should experience a similar issue

While this is not Emby's fault, but themoviedb's, I am left wondering how many of those type of error I have in my library. 

 

An Actor Cleaner plugin would be extremely useful in my scenario.

Why not simply correct the errors in themoviedb!? It is community driven

I did report it to them, but my point is as duplicate actor issue happens with a legendary well known actor, how many more similar issues are out there with far lesser known names. Kodi (via Emby for Kodi) reports I have 140k movie actors.

How would the plugin know they are the same?

I dont think it would find out by itself, but if it could only merge, like genre and studio cleaner do, it would be helpful.

It could be done the same way as the other "cleaners".  However, it seems the configuration of the plug-in would take almost as long as just fixing the data at the source so I'm not sure it would be worth the performance impact (which could be significant).
