Celebs Rally For Writers


Although Hollywood Boulevard's annual Santa Claus Lane Parade was officially canceled earlier this year because of a lack of support from celebrities (a scaled-down version is planned for Nov. 25 with Bob Barker riding as grand marshal and the cast of Disney's High School Musical waving to the crowds), there were celebrities aplenty on the same street Monday to participate in a 90-minute demonstration staged by the Writers Guild of America. The guild reportedly attracted a crowd of about 4,000 (a rally in New York attracted only about 200, attributable to the cold, rainy weather) and heard WGA West President Patric Verrone declare, "What we're fighting for is our future and that of the entire industry." Alicia Keys sang two songs for the crowd. Actress Sandra Oh urged them to boycott Disneyland. The celebrities even included eight actors who played Munchkins in the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz.
