The Screen Actors Guild has set up January 2, 2009 as the date for a strike vote to be held. Just like the writer's strike of 2007, this one could disrupt TV series once again (Summer and next season's start). The guild remains at odds with Hollywood studios over treatment of Internet productions and actor benefits in the event of unplanned work stoppages.

Hopefully they produce some GOOD reality shows this time, or uncancel The Mole again, if it comes down to having only reality shows around..again. I hope they don't strike, but then again, they probably should get part of the earnings from DVDs and stuff.

It's nice to see that some of the actors are thinking. Plus, I think the theater actors have been hit a few times this decade already, so they may not be willing to strike.
