Stars Join Writers on the Picket Line

Posted on November 15, 2007

Members from the Screen Actors Guild including Ben Stiller, David Krumholtz, Lily Tomlin, William Petersen, Nicolette Sheridan, Marg Helgenberger, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Marge Hildebrand, and Zach Braff joined writers on the picket line outside Universal Studios yesterday in support of the writers' strike. Actress and executive producer of The Sarah Silverman Program said, "It's so crazy ridiculous...all the writers want is a small percentage of the money that the producers are making on the things that they're writing." Ben Stiller said, "I hope this strike is over soon, but it shouldn't be over until we get what we need."
