The actors’ strike continues, and over the past few weeks, we’ve seen big stars join the picket line. Now it’s the turn of the entire ‘Breaking Bad’ cast—100% meeting and already part of the Los Angeles protests. Led by Bryan Cranston, the 67-year-old actor speaks about supporting the union and the importance of putting human labor ahead of the artificial intelligence tools that have become so prevalent lately.

To secure his family’s financial future, Walter throws himself into the world of crime with his former student, Jesse Pinkman.

Along with Jesse Plemons, Aaron Paul and Betsy Brandt, Cranston Discussing his intentions to remain on the picket line, he argues that Hollywood studios are not enemies but that empathy and dialogue are necessary to reach an agreement.

We are here in solidarity with all of us, with all of our affected brothers and sisters, and with the WGA and SAG. We are all the backbone of our company. We will not make enemies of them (studios and streamers); they are not villains. These are people we will all work with again at some point. We just want them to see reality and fairness and come back to the table and talk to us.

That contract will have a sentence that says, “The actors must be human.” That’s overwhelming, but that’s what it says there, and so does the Writers Guild contract: “It must be written by a human.” ‘. We’ve never had to imagine that, but now it’s here. It could happen now and we have to step in and say, ‘You are dehumanizing the workforce and this cannot go on.’

The use of artificial intelligence in Hollywood has raised significant concerns among actors and screenwriters due to its potential impact on the entertainment industry. AI has the ability to generate content quickly and efficiently, which could threaten traditional storytelling and screenwriting professions. Screenwriters fear that machines could automatically produce dialogue and storylines, reducing demand for their services and reducing the originality and artistic quality they bring to the creative process.

On the other hand, AI could change the dynamics of acting in Hollywood. The ability to create digital characters and performances that look and act like humans could impact employment opportunities for live actors and reduce demand for traditional performances. The ethics surrounding the use of AI-generated images of deceased actors is also a sensitive issue, raising questions about consent and ownership of the image.
