SAG pres parties in Italy as strike looms
And Chalamet's first 'Wonka' trailer is here
What to know
SAG President Fran Drescher criticized for outing in Italy with Kim Kardashian as strike deadline looms… The actors could go on strike Thursday if a deal isn’t reached by Wednesday, meaning a total shutdown of scripted productions in Hollywood. So why then is the president of the actors’ union out at fashion events in Italy? Everyone is entitled to their weekends, but the optics of Drescher attending these events as the important deadline looms is not great. There’s a lot at stake for the actors in the long run and even more at stake for the entire industry (and all the people that work in it) in the short run. Let’s hope a deal gets done before time runs out. 🪧
