George Clooney, saying that bickering between the Screen Actors Guild and AFTRA is counter-productive, declined to take sides between the unions as production on movies and TV shows grinds to a halt because of a looming strike by actors, Daily Variety reports. “What we can’t do is pit artist against artist, because the one thing you can be sure of is that stories about Jack Nicholson vs. Tom Hanks only strengthen the negotiating power of the AMPTP,” Clooney said in a letter Thursday. Clooney also suggested that the unions raise the dues on the highest earnng actors, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
