Writers walk; Potter strips

The Writers Guild of America is officially on strike after last minute negotiations failed late on Sunday night.

The probably means that John Stewart and The Colbert Report will be going into repeats (is this really why Colbert has dropped out of the presidential race?) What impact the strike will have on television series and films will depend on how long it lasts (in 1988 writers walked the pavement for 22 weeks) and whether other entertainment industry unions follow suit.

In happier news, the BBC reports that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has confirmed that he will be going the full monty in NYC when Equus comes to Broadway next year.
