Luv that Huckaberry - bee? What a cutie pie. It'd be nice to see someone like him replace the present over-managed little boy now in office.
The next act in the WGA strike will be the formal entry of The Screen Actors Guild onstage. Ha! Actors don't care if the strike lasts forever. Most of us have spent our entire acting career waiting for the next gig. Creeps who work all the time, you know creeps like Cruise et al, may give desperate 'love-me' signals but as actors and some of the better directors say, "I've done a dump bigger than him." And Pitt is the pits. So in this strike drama not a soul outside the Studio gate gives a damn about lots of the name actors. Sure, sure, sour grapes, but the Star system is solely a money-making device to sucker moviegoers. Of course there have been big people movie stars. Don't ya think Huckabee is a tad like Gary Cooper (singled out by no less a luminary than Constantin Stanislavsky) or James Stewart?
In 1935 the LA Times printed the news that 'the streets of Culver City ran with blood' over a labor union strike about to hit MGM. It was so serious that Mutiny on the Bounty was almost not completed for fear of igniting even more ferocious brawling in the streets. You see, The great Depression that began in '29, didn't hit California bigtime till 1934. You can't imagine the sappy little pasty-faced former urchins who pass for Studio executives. Many of them, stangely enough, went to Harvard and have a club for Hollywood 'Boys.' I get invitations from them, or used to. Maybe it leaked out I'm a Union actor. I got a terrific start as an actor by acting in, and Directing, two different undergraduate theater productions onstage as the Agassi (shoot, can't spell it: he was a famous Naturalist) theater then part of Radcliffe, now part of Harvard. A lot of those guys begin as Studio accountants. See? It's all about money. It's be great if a California Seismic Phenomenon simply swallowed Hollywood.
So, you see, SAG will enter the strike and that'll be all she wrote. The Studio vessel has already sprung a leak: The Writers who have gone back to work for Letterman are receiving, now, the very things the Actors are demanding!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
