TV : Multi-Hyphenates Hyperventilate Over Strike

It's safe to say that Michael will have mixed feelings if Toby chooses not to cross the picket lines...

Variety reports that those unlucky scribes who are also actors are going to have to decide whether to cross the picket line to show up for filming. Particularly hard hit is NBC's The Office which features writers Mindy Kaling, B.J. Novak, and Paul Lieberstein as cast members. Even though the shows that are filming now were written before the strike, writers are often on-set to handle last minute changes and to help clarify whats been written. Also hard hit are many shows that feature writer/producers who usually oversee the whole show. The Writers Guild is asking them not to show up at work.
