Tomorrow is take your actor to strike day

SAG has declared tomorrow, Tuesday Nov. 12, as Actor Day on the WGA’s picket lines.

“Come to Universal Studios tomorrow and show your Screen Actors Guild solidarity for striking WGA writers,” said a notice on the SAG site. “In the interest of keeping the TV cameras focused on the strike, WGA has announced that there will be a ‘Picketing with the Stars’ rally on Tuesday, November 13, from 12-2 p.m.”

SAG hasn’t yet disclosed who will be at the rally.

Guild actors showed up on picket lines throughout the strike’s first week. However, SAG’s still advising them to stay at studio locations rather than join pickets at on-location sites and that they must cross picket lines if they’re under contract to do so.

“Screen Actors Guild is not condoning or participating in disruption and/or attempts to shut down location shoots,” the Guild says on its Web site. “It is critical that SAG picket signs not be displayed at any locations other than the appropriate sites at the studios and networks. If you are contracted to work on a television series or motion picture that continues to produce while the WGA is on strike, you are obligated by your personal service agreement and the ‘No Strike’ clause in our collective bargaining agreements to go to work.”

UPDATE:  Showrunners Carol Mendelsohn (“CSI”) and Marc Cherry (“Desperate Housewives”), both of whom are WGA negotiating committee members, are helping coordinate the event.
