Ouch: Hollywood Actor’s Union Deal Fails To Protect Against AI


Actress Justine Bateman criticized the Hollywood actors’ union for a new provisional contract that she believes fails to adequately protect actors from AI technology.

Bateman argued that the contract could lead to actors being replaced by synthetic objects made by generative AI.

She believes that doing projects without humans means not being in the film business. (Trending: Court Hands Down Crucial 2nd Amendment Ruling)

“If they don’t want to work anymore. Sure. If they want to be replaced by synthetic objects that are made by generative AI, why not?” she said.

“I think they sort of like to think of themselves as being tech barons themselves or something. But this, doing projects that don’t involve humans — you’re not in the film business anymore,” she stated.

“People who don’t want to have any human involved have never really been on a set. They don’t know what it’s like to make a film.”

SAG-AFTRA members will be voting on the contract, which includes provisions on AI, and the details are yet to be released to the public.

Justine Bateman has become a prominent opponent of Hollywood’s embrace of AI, and studio mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg has predicted that AI will eliminate most animation jobs in Hollywood within three years.
