SAG Asks For Less – Gets More…Theoretically

scan0061.jpg
The word is the SAG backed off doubling DVD residuals and now looks to be asking for only a 15% increase. And they also caved on pay for guest stars – take that barely working actors!

This is an anonymous quote on HollywoodReporter.com regarding the guest star pay:

“That’s still on the table,” one source said. “There’s still not a whole lot that’s off the table.”

Great. Looks like we’ll find out if there will be a strike around the same time we’ll find out who’s going to head the Democratic ticket. Grr cliffhangers.
