Actors Petition SAG to Not Make Them Look Like Greedy Dirt Bags

sag2222.jpgSome top actors are pleading with the Screen Actors Guild to not call for a vote on a strike next month.

From NYT:

In a petition, more than 130 well-known actors – including George Clooney, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin and Sally Field – urged guild leaders to halt the strike authorization vote.

“We support our union and we support the issues we’re fighting for, but we do not believe in all good conscience that now is the time to be putting people out of work,” the petition stated.

Seriously, what other union is threatening to strike right now? Serious? We’re in the middle of an economic meltdown. In the middle. Not even done. Still melting as we speak. And SAG doesn’t feel like they’re getting a fair deal?!

Bed-wetters.

Nikki Finke has all the details (as usual) on DHD.
