Michael Hollick, the man whose voice you've been listening to as you kill indiscriminately as Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto IV, is upset that he's not receiving residuals for his work, and was only paid $100,000 for a little over a year's worth of work. This is a part of a New York Times article highlighting the woes of actors who don't get paid in the same way for internet jobs as they would for stage or screen.
This is at the heart of the SAG strike that is primed to happen over the summer. Oh, yeah. If you didn't know, there's going to be an actor's strike, which means that we're looking at another work stoppage in entertainment. The first one was hard enough, and we're not all the way back, so you never know what's going to happen this time. Personally, I'd take $100,000 to do some VO work, but that might just be me.
