From The G-Man recently learned of the death of Mike Hodge, who served as the New York local president of SAG-AFTRA. When this site and The G-Man Interviews were launched, Mr. Hodge, a former Washington Post journalist and member of the legendary "Metro 7", was one of the first to offer guidance and unyielding support. He was also gracious enough to appear on The G-Man Interviews on two occasions to discuss his role with SAG-AFTRA, the lack of diversity in Hollywood, the Metro 7, and the group's landmark battle with the Washington Post.
From The G-Man proudly presents those episodes in honor of Mr. Hodge, who was an accomplished actor, a fierce proponent of union rights.... and a man who played a major role in helping integrate the newsrooms of America.
