Billy Ray

Billy Ray: Though initially a strike skeptic, Ray, a writer-director of such films as "Shattered Glass" and "Breach," played a big behind-the-scenes role in steering the DGA into friendlier territory. He was a prime force behind the formation of an influential group of writer-directors -- known as the WD 40 -- that used its influence as members of both guilds to help nudge the DGA toward crafting a deal that was for good for everyone, not just its directors.
