Actor Rob Lowe joins writers' strike picket line
STORY: Actor Rob Lowe turned out to support the writers, including his son John Owen Lowe, and voiced his concerns about other crew members affected by the strike.
"You know, the make up, the hair, the grips, the electrics, you know, people who work the long hours and have nowhere to go right now. Nowhere to go while we fight this out. I really think about them a lot today," he said.
The Writers Guild of America (WGA), which represents roughly 11,500 writers, said its leadership unanimously supported a strike after failing to reach an agreement for higher pay from studios such as Walt Disney and Netflix.
