Screen Actors Guild president William Daniels will wait several weeks before announcing whether he will seek re-election, Variety reports. No other candidate has stepped up to the plate for SAG's fall elections. Daniels, who won the 1999 election by taking a tough stance towards studios, last year led a six-month strike against advertisers. His term has been marked by infighting and staff squabbles, but Daniels has assembled a united front during the film-TV contract talks. Though a strike is not expected, an agreement will not likely be reached by the June 30 deadline. Daniels, who won two Emmys for his role as Dr. Mark Craig in the medical series St. Elsewhere, also provided the voice for the car in Knight Rider and played the school principal in TGIF's teen comedy Boy Meets World.
