WB was frantic to find Michael. They had no direct contact information for
him. They went through SAG which said they didn't have a current listing for
either Michael or his agent. They asked me for help, and I gave them a number
which I had a while ago but didn't work. So next we tried Sandy Bruckner, who
had another number for him, which I gave to WB, and they said they left
messages at that number but never heard a reply. This was all at very short
notice, and there was only a week to try and track him down. B5-DVD maven
Scott Devine at WB can directly confirm that they were looking for him
everywhere, but the clock finally ran out.

This is why it's best, before raising the alarms, to simply ask what the
situation might be. I'm pretty straightforward in answering these things.

S'okay...as I said, it was kinda short notice and I can understand the
availability question. Please give Michael regards from myself and Kathryn.

Best to you both.
