Short Ends: Actors, Agents & Managers, Oh My! Pt. 2


Today I continue my discussion with show regulars JD & Yolanda about the role that agents and managers play in Hollywood.


In this installment, we get insight into the contractual obligations of agents and actors, why agents get 10%, and what happens if an actor gets a new agent mid-negotiation of a movie deal.

We end the conversation with a comical display of my inability to grasp why it is an agent can’t also serve as a manager, and why managers typically get 15% (or even more). Will JD and Yolanda be able to explain this concept to me? Tune in to find out.
