WGA Support Video

With the recent WGA labour strike on the go, a series of short films staring a number of A-list actors and actress' have been made as show of support for the union.

Not surprisingly, Kate stars in one of the many short films - episode #6 - with David Schwimmer, where the two are seen in what appears to be a prison attempting to talk to through the phone system to which naturally nothing can be heard; thus obviously promoting the title of these films: "Speechless". The some 40 second piece features "creative team" credit to Rod Lurie; who happens to be the director of Kate's next big film, "Nothing but the Truth".

The rest of the films can been seen HERE

CAST: David Schwimmer, Kate Beckinsale
CREATIVE TEAM: Rod Lurie
TECHNICAL TEAM: Joel Marshall, Anthony Marinelli, Clint Bennett

This is the sixth of the Writers Guild Of America member-conceived Internet videos for Project "Speechless" featuring A-list Screen Actors Guild talent. They are being hosted exclusively by DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com over Thanksgiving Weekend. For the first time in the TV and movie industry, high-profile SAG actors are together taking their talents directly and exclusively to the Internet, the very medium which is at the center of the current WGA labor strike against the Alliance Of Motion Picture & Television Producers. The project, conceived by director/writer George Hickenlooper and writer Alan Sereboff, will be releasing three videos here in the morning, afternoon and evening throughout this weekend. See them all!

P.S. - And yeah, I noticed that they spelled Kate's surname incorrect!

thanks for the vid!! it's probably an adapted bit of nothing but the truth since Kate's character goes to jail and David Schwimmer plays her husband.
