The proposed merger of the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists failed, but SAG President Richard Masur still represents more than 12,000 people--some due to be honored on the SAG Awards telecast tonight. Masur, 50, has also been on screen for 25 years, in both comedy (TV's "One Day at a Time") and bad-guy roles (alongside Gene Hackman in "Under Fire").
