Break a leg, Anne-Marie.

Last time I saw Anne-Marie Johnson, it was during the Writers Guild strike two years ago. She and other actors had come out to walk the picket lines with us. Very cool.

I didn’t know she’s now running for president of the Screen Actors Guild... till I saw this campaign video on the 3 brothers and A SISTER blog.

Remember Anne-Marie Johnson from “Hollywood Shuffle” and the last season of “In Living Color” and tons of other TV work? Her main opponent in this presidential race is Ken Howard... the “White Shadow” himself.

The SAG election results will be announced on September 24.

Don't say break a leg to Anne-Marie! Have you seen those bird legs??

Seriously, though, she sounds like a no-brainer. I'd vote for her!

And who could forget her as Althea Tibbs on "In the Heat of the Night"?

Wow, I had a huge crush on her back in the day. It's good to know she's doing well.

Re: "Break a leg" UBM were you thinking about that crazy scene in "I'm Gonna Git You Sucka"? :-D

Funny, when I saw her name I pictured Anna Marie Horsford.

Good luck to her. My worst memory of her acting career is when she played on Melrose Place. They had her character involved in an interracial love triangle that I doubt any self-respecting Black woman of her character's caliber would have tolerated. I doubt one those nighttime soaps would try to run a story arc like that one today.
