The WGA Strike Finally Affecting the Actors

Zap2it: Universal suspending the contracts of it's actors.

And another report from The Hollywood Reporter.

And the other studios will be following suit. At least they aren't taken the most sever approach to this and just terminating the contracts which, let's face it, would be biting themselves in the ass. But in five weeks the actors could be freed from their contracts all together and how is that going to affect the series we know and love? I certainly can't fault the actors for looking for other work. Films are still in production. I'm just envisioning the strike being over and cast members either not wanting to come back or being tied up with other projects. This season really may be over in a few weeks.

And while I think this is pretty widely known in fandom, 'Battlestar Galactica' shuts down production today.
