Hey, Judah: A “30 Rock” star uses NBC.com to make a point

Does anybody at NBC know that the network’s own website is being used to subtly support the WGA?

“Frank Talk”– an NBC.com subsite devoted to the fictional scribe Frank on “30 Rock” played by Judah Friedlander– usually features all manner of offbeat pics. musings and anecdotes about and from Frank.

The latest post on the blog, however, features a very low-key shout-out to striking scribes. It’s nothing more than picture of a sullen Friedlander, wearing his trademark trucker hat, with the caption “On Strike.”

As fans of “30 Rock” know, it’s always worth keeping an eye on Frank’s hats. They usually include some sort of obscure reference or subtle joke, such as “Ninja Expert” or “Joystick Master.”

The post-strike hat, however, is blank. Message to NBC: No contract, no funny trucker hats.

Blog readers are loving Friedlander’s quiet show of support for the guild. The comment section on the blog– which, let us point out again, is owned by NBC– features a slew of pro-scribe sentiments.

“Aww, your hat is on strike too,” writes one fan. “Don’t forget to ask for ad revenue from this blog.”

Adds another visitor: “I love that you posted this on NBC’s website. I’d also like to post a comment on NBC’s own website telling the corporate fat cats that I hope they get rabies, and the hair on their toes falls out, and they never have good sex ever again. So, here it is. The fans support the WGA 100%.”

Hopefully the folks at NBC.com have a sense of humor and don’t decide to pull Frank’s silent protest.
