Alan Rosenberg Replaces Melissa Gilbert as SAG Head

L.A. Law star Alan Rosenberg is the new president of the Screen Actor’s
Guild (SAG), replacing actress Melissa Gilbert‘s four years as head of the
union.

The New Jersey-born actor, married to CSI star Marg Helgenberger, was elected
president on Friday at the actors’ union, which represents 100,000
actors across the United States.

Rosenberg, 54, beat General Hospital actress Morgan Fairchild and Jingle All
the Way
star Robert Conrad to win 40 percent of the vote.

Little House on the Prairie star Gilbert decided to step down earlier this
year after two terms, citing rifts within the union.

Rosenberg says, “I am honored that the members of this great union have
placed their confidence in me.

“I ran a campaign that offered a simple and straightforward promise – I will
fight like hell to get actors their fair share.”

Meanwhile, Grease 2 actress Connie Stevens replaced James Cromwell as the
secretary-treasurer.
