The Writers Guild of America strike has been supported by James Cromwell.

On Monday, the Succession actor resorted to Twitter to express her support for the Hollywood writers who are presently on strike.

“It all starts with the words. “Without them, nothing happens,” Cromwell tweeted. “I recently gave a brilliant speech that not only explained my and my brother’s characters, but also illuminated an entire narrative (sic).”

The actor alluded to his Succession character Ewan delivering a eulogy for his recently departed brother Logan Roy, who was played by Brian Cox.

“Great writers do things like this.” And they must be compensated in proportion to their contribution. “At the very least, they must be able to support themselves and their families,” he added.

“Management appears to hold all the cards in this era of corporate greed and union busting.” Except for the three most important: unity, solidarity, and fraternity. When the writers win, we all gain. And we will triumph. Union! Strike!”

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) went on strike on May 2, 2018, in response to a disagreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) over streaming media residuals and the usage of artificial intelligence.

The continuing strike has caused the most disruption to American film and television production since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, and the WGA’s largest walkout since their 2007-2008 strike.

During the strike, actors such as Quinta Brunson, Nina Dobrev, Tina Fey, Natasha Lyonne, Bob Odenkirk, and Jason Sudeikis have publicly supported writers on the picket line.
