Actors in Hollywood have gone on strike. This is confirmed by the SAG-AFTRA union, which has more than 160,000 members.

Tens of thousands of actors will join the writers’ strike and, for practical purposes, shut down Hollywood, writes The Washington Post.
It comes after unionized screenwriters in Hollywood went on strike eleven weeks ago.

Actor Christopher Jonner has the following to say when Dagbladet hits the string Thursday night:
