Actor Kevin Spacey has donated $100,000 to the Screen Actor's Guild Strike Fund. SAG president William Daniels, who was in New York Sept. 13 and 14 for the resumption of contract talks with commercial producers, was said to have been "overwhelmed" by the actor's gesture. The infusion comes as good news to the union. Copenhagen star Philip Bosco earlier told Playbill On-Line that SAG has dipped into the strike fund to the tune of $2 millon as of last week. The strike has also caused many of the commercial production ancillary businesses to suffer, with bankruptcies and office closing reported.
In a statement released to the press, Spacey was quoted as saying he hoped "others in our industry and beyond will find their own ways to help support the 100,000 members of SAG."
