BJ Novak, a writer and player on NBC's The Office will have a tough choice to make as the WGA walkout begins. According to The Hollywood Reporter, quite a few contributors will have to walk that line.
As a member of the WGA, Novak will be on strike. But as a member of The Screen Actors Guild they'll be expecting him at work in the morning. The Office's Paul Lieberstein and Mindy Kaling are in the same boat. Says one senior network executive "The official line on all of our shows is we expect you to show up. We've told them that it's required under their contracts, and they'll be in breach if they don't show up."
The Office, as well as a number of network series, utilize quite a few writer/actors, and they will all have to manage these tough calls.
