A moderate Screen Actors Guild faction, Unite for Strength, has won control of six out of the 11 Hollywood board seats up for grabs during the actors union elections, TelevisionWeek reports. The victory for the group over the Membership First faction, which had been in control, could mean a sooner end to the contract disputes between the actors and producers. Among the new national board members are Adam Arkin, Amy Brenneman and Kate Walsh. Hollywood heavyweights plan to start reaching out immediately to the new elected reps to figure out ways to adjust their last offer enough to reach an agreement on a new contract overing prime time TV shows and feature films, Daily Variety reports.
