Striking Writers Guild of America planning action against Jay Leno


UPI News Service, 01/05/2008 

A spokeswoman for the Writers Guild of America says the union is planning a response to U.S. TV talk-show host Jay Leno's decision to cross strike lines.

With the "Tonight Show" host already writing and performing comedy monologues for his show, spokeswoman Sherry Goldman said the WGA member would not be overlooked despite his fame, The New York Times reported Saturday.

"The answer is, he is not getting a pass," the Writers Guild of America East representative said Friday.

In addition to being targeted for creating their own material during the writers' strike, Leno and his fellow late night TV hosts have been facing a sudden lack of available guests.

The Times said that in order to push their advantage during the ongoing strike, WGA members have started pressuring high-profile guests to avoid talk-show appearances.

Due to this growing trend, the "Tonight Show" has refused to release its guest list for the upcoming week to avoid any additional booking troubles.
