WGAW's Holland walks; Petrie takes guild reins

19 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

WGA West president Charles Holland resigned Thursday to defuse the controversy over his credibility as the guild heads into crucial contract negotiations with the studios. Holland was succeeded by vp Daniel Petrie Jr., who was president from 1997-99. The WGA West board might appoint a new vp when it meets March 29, but that office and possibly the presidency will be subject to an election in September. Holland was under fire because of media reports challenging his claims that he served in the Army Special Forces and played football on a scholarship at the University of Illinois. "On the eve of negotiations, I have no choice but to remove myself and clear the air for the only issue that matters -- the best possible deal for the benefit of the most possible writers," Holland said. "As committed as I am to fulfilling my responsibilities and to standing up for myself, the guild is more important than one man." »
