Support the Hollywood Strike: Talented Actors Offering Services and Exclusive Memorabilia on eBay

  • Thousands of unionized actors and writers are currently on strike.
  • This work stoppage affects all employees in the TV and film industry, not just the wealthy ones.
  • An eBay auction has been organized to offer actors’ services and memorabilia in order to support crew members.

Do you have burning questions for the stars of “New Girl” or “Better Call Saul?” Well, now you can bid on those answers in an auction.

An eBay auction is currently offering various items from Hollywood celebrities to support workers affected by the ongoing strike of actors and writers.

Thousands of members from the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) have been on strike since May and July, respectively. These unions are demanding better wages and worker protections from the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP).

The strike doesn’t discriminate and affects all employees, regardless of whether they are part of a union or not, in the TV and film industry. To assist crew members who may have lost access to healthcare due to the strike, top Hollywood celebrities are offering their time, services, and memorabilia on eBay to raise funds.

The auction includes opportunities such as Zoom hangouts with the cast of popular shows like “New Girl”, as well as the chance to have dinner with actors from “Better Call Saul” and “Arrested Development”. Currently, the highest bid for the dinner experience is $8,000.

However, there are certain conditions for these hangouts. Video recording is strictly prohibited, but taking photos is allowed. Additionally, the actors have the right to end the session at any time, and inappropriate behavior or solicitation will not be tolerated.

For instance, the listing for 20 minutes and 20 questions with comedian Sarah Silverman explicitly states, “Don’t be weird!”

Actor Adam Scott, known for his roles in “Severance” and “Parks and Recreation”, is offering to walk your dog for an hour if you live in Los Angeles. The current bid for this experience is $3,050 as of Thursday afternoon.

A blue apron signed by Jeremy Allen White and other cast members of FX’s “The Bear” is currently being auctioned off at a bid of $2,025.

The auction was organized by The Union Solidarity Coalition (TUSC), a group that was formed at the beginning of the WGA writers’ strike in May. Susanna Fogel, co-writer of “Booksmart,” explained in an email to Insider that TUSC’s purpose is to raise funds to directly assist crew members and foster a sense of community during these challenging times.

A spokesperson for the WGA did not provide a comment when asked.

The auction is scheduled to end on September 22.
