Inside CAA

I found Cieply's article interesting and informative. However, CAA co-founder Mike Ovitz's impassioned and often smarmy plea (in the accompanying article, "Straight Talk") for "everyone (in the business) to root for each other" almost made me lose my lunch.

If I ever had any doubts about Hollywood agents getting an unjust reputation for being sharks, Ovtiz's statement helped me make up my mind.

What a pitch--I'm surprised he wasn't holding a puppy in his photo.
