CRIMINAL MINDS: "SAG NEEDS A CONTRACT" PLAN:


Criminal Minds: At midnight tonight SAG's contract expires. Criminal Minds is a SAG show. Here is the latest: "SAG President Alan Rosenberg said no strike vote has been planned, and the union's negotiators are "coming to the bargaining table every day in good faith." www.cnn.com/2008/SHOWBIZ/Movies/06/30/actors.contract.talks/

Lets give SAG a helping hand. Remember the thousands of phone calls we made to CBS and Disney during the WGA strike? Lets do it again. Lets start tomorrow morning when our Criminal Minds actors are working without a contract.

My name is____________ and I want the AMPTP to give SAG a fair contract.

. CALL CBS: 212-975-4545 and CALL DISNEY: 818-560-1000

CRIMINAL MINDS: KICKING IT UP A NOTCH FOR KIM!


Criminal Minds: Kim Harrison, Ed Bernero's assistant on Criminal Minds, emailed me this evening that she is half way to her Aids Marathon pledge. Okay Criminal Minds fans, it is time to kick it up a notch. I've contributed and Kirsten Vangsness has contributed. Have you? It's not too late and no donation is too small. Lets make it interesting and also reach that goal. Every time you make a donation for Kim your name is entered on her revolving donations board. On July 15th at 10pm est I will take a look at the revolving board and the person whose donation matches Deb Fisher's birthdate (date, not month or year)starting after my daughter's name and not including auction donations wins the Criminal Minds handcuffs given to me by Kirsten Vangsness on the set of Criminal Minds. Deb's birthday is in July. I think she turns 21 but I'm not sure. Brodie knows but he won't tell. :)

For those of you who are having problems donating online because of your browser type, you can paypal me at beaglebabes@aol.com and I will make the donation for you asap or you can call the phone number listed on the right side of the blog and they will take your donation over the phone. Remember to give them Kim's runner #.

CRIMINAL MINDS PUTS SOME IN THE CAN BECAUSE YOU JUST CAN'T USE SOCK PUPPETS ;)


Criminal Minds: As Hollywood braces itself for a potential SAG strike on July 1st it is good to know that Criminal Minds will have some episodes completed and ready to air. Thanks to Ed Bernero and our wonderful writers, Criminal Minds was one of the first TV shows to air new episodes after the WGA strike. Lets all hope that another strike doesn't happen and that just incase it does that Ed and company can bank as many episodes as possible between now and the end of the month. We need our actors. Sock puppets just are not a viable substitute. ;)

"About two dozen broadcast series -- including "Heroes," "House," "Bones," "My Name Is Earl," "ER," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "CSI: NY," "Criminal Minds," "Brothers & Sisters," "Chuck," "Dirty Sexy Money" and "Life" -- will have episodes in the can by July 1 as some stayed in continuous production or resumed shooting quickly because of the fallout of the writers strike. But there will be no finished product of such heavyweights as "Grey's Anatomy," "Desperate Housewives," "CSI: Miami" and "The Office," prompting speculation that networks might consider pushing the start of the 2008-09 season if there is a long SAG strike."

ANOTHER CRIMINAL MINDS FAMILY PROJECT:


Criminal Minds: Rick Dunkle is the script coordinator for Criminal Minds. He's asked that I post the following. Rick is a part of our Criminal Minds family so lets try to join him in lending aid.

Friends,

As you may have heard, Indiana was rocked this past weekend when a major rain storm unleashed close to a foot of rain in a single day, causing mass flooding which reeked havoc across the state, in particular in my hometown of Franklin, Indiana, located in Johnson County, one of the hardest hit areas. While my family was thankfully among the lucky ones, a majority of the community was not so fortunate. Initial estimates put the damage in the hundreds of millions of dollars, with most victims - including my friends and their families - uninsured against flooding. While the loss of life was relatively limited, the personal losses are incalculable. Many people lost their homes, their belongings -- their way of life.

Clearly this tragic event is very personal to me. Many of the images being shown on television and online are of the community I grew up in. I am asking that anyone who has the means to do so please donate to the Indianapolis Red Cross so that the victims of this disaster do not have to start from scratch. Please note, all donations are tax deductible.

For your convenience, I have provided donation information below, and links to local newspapers reporting on “the worst disaster ever to hit the community”. I want to thank you in advance for your assistance in this time of need. And please know that the people of Indiana thank you as well.

Sincerely,
Rick Dunkle

P.S. Please feel free to forward this e-mail to anyone who might want to help. Thank you.

IF DONATING ONLINE:
Go to https://www.redcross-indy.org/Donate/DonateForm.aspx. Please make sure to designate the funds for the “June 7th Flooding” so that the money can go to those affected by this tragic event.

IF DONATING BY CHECK:
Mail your donation (or I can mail it for you) to the American Red Cross of Greater Indianapolis, 441 E. 10th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202. Please make sure to write “June 7th Flooding” in the memo line so that the money can go to those affected by this tragic event.

CRIMINAL MINDS: JOE MANTEGNA MOVIE COMING SOON.


Criminal Minds: Joe Mantegna, David Rossi on Criminal Minds, has another movie coming out for us to wait to see. This sounds like a really great movie with a fantastic cast.

LOS ANGELES, CA -- "They are the eyes and ears of Hollywood. Every script, every contract, every birthday card passes through their hands. They know every actor's price. They know every agent's weak spot. They know which producers are having affairs and with whom. If they ever pooled their resources, there's nothing they couldn't do."

Principal photography wraps today on Steve Morris' independent feature, The Assistants, starring Joe Mantegna, Stacy Keach, Jane Seymour and an ensemble cast which includes Chris Conner, Aaron Himelstein, Kathleen Early, Michael Grant Terry, Tate Hanyok, Peter Douglas, Jonathan Bennett, and Reiko Aylesworth.

Financed independently and produced under SAG's Modified Low Budget Agreement, The Assistants chronicles the lives of a group of aspiring young filmmakers who, when their careers haven't turned out as planned, decide to use their positions as hollywood assistants, to lie, cheat, con, and blackmail their own film into production. However, what begins as a hollywood caper movie, quickly grows more complex as the group of friends is challenged by choices which threaten to tear them apart.
