I think we should redirect this page to just "That Guy", and make a note that he is only referred to as "Steven Castle" in the script. In fact, in the commentary, David X. Cohen says that his name was "Steve Castle". Going by our definition of canon, the episodes come before the scripts. -- Dhalia 19:24, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

I thought that we were going to do script over episodes though? Solar Dragon (Talk) 10:44, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, according to our policy, scripts are third tier canon while episodes are first. So we take the episodes first. -- Dhalia 13:59, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Although true scripts would probably place in the second tier, alas, they are unpublished, and most of the "scripts" out on the internet are in actuality transcripts, and therefore not official; falling onto the third tier. But you could still make the arguement that we should keep "Steve Castle" as the title for the page on the grounds that "That Guy" isn't a real name, and so to find his actual name we must look past the primary source material to the commentaries. But "That Guy" is essentially the name for te character anyway, so I'd be fine if we use that as the pagename instead, although if not, we should at least change the name to Steve Castle from of Steven Castle.

Good points, but I would argue his name is in fact That Guy, since that's all they call him in the show. There's a fair amount of odd names in the show: last night I was listening to the commentary for Less Than Hero and he referenced 'Tude Guard. He even spelled it out like that! lol -- Dhalia 15:55, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Also, there is You There as well. Solar Dragon (Talk) 16:35, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
