The Screen Actors Guild wants to bring Ken Howard back as president.
SAG's nominating committee submitted Howard's name and that of current treasurer Amy Aquino to continue in their current positions ahead of the guild's national elections this Fall.
Howard, a veteran character actor, was elected in 2009 as a moderate alternative to his more left-leaning predecessor Alan Rosenberg.
As president, Howard has pushed for a long in the works merger with the American Federation of TV and Radio Artists.
The move comes after the committee completed interviews with various candidates, SAG announced on Thursday.
Eligible candidates can still qualify for the September elections by completing nominating petitions and filing them with the Guild by July 21.
Elections for directors and alternate directors of the national board will also take place this Fall in the Hollywood, New York and Regional Branch Divisions.
Ballots will be mailed to the SAG membership on August 23, with a return deadline of September 22.
