The soon-to-be a month-long writers’ strike continues drawing support from the actors whose words the striking writers pen for a living. Since Thanksgiving, many actors have joined together for the Speechless Campaign, a series of public service announcements showing showing how unfunny/uninteresting/etc. they are without writers feeding them lines.
Today, episode 17 was launched on Speechless Without Writers’ blog, also debuting today. The most current episode features Rosanna Arquette pacing back and forth across the screen, looking suicidal in several spots.
With the blog launch, Speechless Without Writers will be adding new videos daily in both high- and low-res. Over the weekend, Woody Allen shot a Speechless spot at the Manhattan Film Center in New York City and should be posted next week.
The actors onboard: Sean Penn, Holly Hunter, Laura Linney, Alan Cumming, Jay Leno, Harvey Keitel, Kate Beckinsale, Tina Fey, Tim Robbins, Gary Marshall, David Schwimmer, Patricia Clarkson, James Franco, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Martin Sheen, Josh Brolin, Susan Sarandon, Andre 3000, Chazz Palminteri, Jason Bateman, Christine Lahti, Patricia Arquette, Jenna Elfman, Olivia Wilde, Richard Benjamin, Paula Prentiss, Eva Longoria, Justine Bateman, Joshua Jackson, Rosanna Arquette, Diane Ladd, Rebecca Romjin, Minnie Driver, Nicollette Sheridan, Robert Patrick, Matthew Perry, Ed Asner, and America Ferrera and the cast of Ugly Betty, Woody Allen, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jane Fonda, Marisa Tomei, Ethan Hawke, Jason Alexander, Charlize Therone, Minnie Driver, and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
