This article was posted at Variety.com on Sunday. It details how 'back channel' talks have been on-going between SAG and AMPTP. What this really means is Tom Hanks and George Clooney have somehow once again got the head honchos at the studios and networks in a dark room in the bowels of Hollywood to talk with the SAG leaders. This has been done outside of the watchful media eye. Some are citing that as early as Tuesday a deal may be announced ending almost 9 months of back and forth ridiculousness. I have only two things to say. First, the damage has been done. Second, I'll believe it when I seet.
