He's just pulled out of Universal's State of Play because even a series of meetings with director Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland) couldn't ease his concerns about the script (which, thanks to the writers strike, can't be altered).

Unless you've got a better idea? — Ben KatnerFor more WGA strike coverage, updates and unique points of view, see TVGuide.com's Strike Watch blog. read more
