Watch This: Heroes of the Writers Strike Video (2007)

Heroes of the Writers Strike

They can fix a dangling modifier… but can they pour cement? The Writers Guild of America (WGA) is on the verge of a strike and the thousands of screenwriters in Hollywood may soon end up without a job. A few of them have decided to have some fun with the whole situation and maybe even get some extra recognition. This hilarious YouTube short video titled "Heroes of the Writers Strike" pokes fun at six different screenwriters and their new "day jobs." Don't you just get a kick at the creativity of writers' minds?

The video was made by WGA members Gregg Rossen and Brian Sawyer and features writers: Paul Guay (Liar, Liar), Doug Eboch (Sweet Home Alabama), Harris Goldberg (Deuce Bigalow), Dave Garrett (Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo), Cindy and Don Hewitt (Spirited Away), and Tom Donnelly (Sahara).

The impending WGA strike is about to hit on November 1st considering the collective contract runs out on October 31st. For a great overview of the WGA strike, The Movie Blog has an article titled Understanding The Coming Hollywood Strike that I'd highly suggest. In the meantime, enjoy this fun video.
