The strike is spreading…

Writer's Guild of AmericaI don’t plan on becoming a daily updater on the writer’s strike, but some interesting things happened yesterday.

Like… lost of TV actors walking out and refusing to work without the writers.

Now, this can be viewed in a few ways: A) “We believe the writers are being screwed.” B) “We’re prepping for our own strike in a few months and want solidarity.”

It wasn’t every show, but Ain’t It Cool News has been gathering reports of what shows have already shut down.  Actors are joining the picket lines, calling in sick, and just flat out refusing to continue filming.  The guys who run the shows are walking out also and joining the lines.

Gee producers… getting the hint yet?
