I like the layout and look of the newly updated Android Plex app on both my Amazon FireTV and Android TV (Sony Bravia). The only thing I've noticed is that there is no list of the actors in each movie. I believe previously there was at least the 3-5 main actors like in other Plex apps. This would be a minimum in my book. There are a few actors below in the sections that show their names and "also starring in", but there should also be a short list.
I'd really like to be able to click and see a longer list. And also be able to click the name to see what other movies they are in would be a plus (like in web app), but would settle for a short 3-5 name list.
Am I overlooking something?
Your question is about the server side.
A few months ago I had that situation.
The solution was using The Movie database agent for cast and crew in the agent library.
I leave you the link of what you need to change in the library where you have that problem.

Thanks for your reply, but I believe you misunderstand. I am not talking about server side (or I would have posted in the server section). I have all the actors when I view movie details on my server (Windows 7 - Plex Web). All Android TV apps (Amazon Fire devices, Shield TV, Sony Android TV) do not display a list of actors. Not just the pictures, but not even a short list of 3 or 4 like before. When I view the same movie using Roku or other players/devices they are there.
There are many threads/topics regarding this. Some that date back before April 2016 complaining about this. I am sure that it is not me or my set up. The most important information about a movie are the TITLE, Description/Synopsis and The Actors. Even more important than the Video Quality, Audio and Subtitles...If you are going to watch a movie you want to know "what it is about" and "who is in the movie"
