Cut! Actors' strike threatens to bring Hollywood to a standstill

By Guy Adams in Los Angeles
Tuesday, 24 June 2008

To have one trade union paralyse Hollywood was strange; two doing it in quick succession feels like carelessness. A threatened walkout by actors, which could begin as early as next week, is throwing major film and television studios into chaos.


The contract dispute, this time between the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and their white-collar bosses, the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), is causing what industry experts have called a "virtual strike".

Production deadlines for dozens of major projects have been scrapped amid growing signs that the SAG, which has 120,000 members, will fail to resolve its dispute before a deadline for industrial action on Tuesday next week. [continued at link]

If this keeps up, I hope we get more reality shows. Never enough of them. I want one named "You CAN Turn a Hoe Into a Housewife!"

Rob, you're just a phone-call away from being a producer for Bravo.

If the writers thought they got little sympathy during their strike, just wait until actors strike.

Heh. Waters was a bit of a robot. At least Slice would occasionally concede a point, eve if begrudgingly. Neither was as bad as khux of course.

The writers in a lot of peoples eyes looked like the little guy getting beaten up by the big ol' bad guy. The starving artists. No way the actors are getting that love. Put mouthy Ketherine Heigl on another picket line and see how much sympathy she gets.
