But will he have a problem answering to 'Scab'?

November 2, 2007 |  1:51 pm


There's at least one Hollywood writer who says he plans to cross a picket line, according to a Craigslist post that begins:

"To Interested Parties (studio execs/agents/producers):

"I’ve made a big decision. I am driving out to Los Angeles with the full intention of breaking the Writers Guild picket line. It’s clear the writers on strike are greedy and full of themselves.

Studios pay them millions of dollars and look how grateful they are. I am available immediately for work as an entry level writer or producer or assistant director while the writers are striking.

I graduated in May from Seton Hall with a 3.1 GPA majoring in Creative Writing (screenplays, plays, free journaling) and have almost 4 years of dialogue writing experience. My one-act play 'Putting With Papa' detailing a young boy’s final round of mini golf with his grandpa was a finalist at our university Autumn Theater Def Blowout. If you’d like to contact me and do business, please respond to this post...."

The post went on to include an Internet address and telephone number should opportunity come knocking. It was not immediately clear whether the message was a hoax or the real deal. A voicemail left for the self-confident writer was not immediately returned.

More news on the strike
