Hollywood luxury tax

Dan Kenitz at BiPolar Nation wonders whether Hollywood is ready for it's version of the luxury tax.

Coyote, best known for his role as the scientist trying to track down E.T., suggests that the Screen Actors Guild ought to call upon leading actors to kick back “a modest amount, say on salaries over $6 million,” to lift the pay of actors they are working with — if producers act similarly.

He asks, Hollywood’s a liberal place. Big movie stars shouldn’t have any problem with such a “progressive” idea. Right?
