Geyer Kosinski is leaving the William Morris Agency after serving as a talent agent for three years to become a personal manager with Addis/Wechsler & Associates.
He is expected to continue to represent many of his clients. During his stint at WMA, he worked with such talent as Academy Award best actor nominee Billy Bob Thornton, Kevin Spacey, Kelly Lynch, Angelina Jolie, Sam Elliott, Natasha Henstridge, Jerry O’Connell and Charles Dutton. The particulars of who he will manage are still being worked out.
He was also involved in the packaging of such film projects as “Albino Alligator,” which marked Spacey’s directorial debut, Lakeshore Entertainment’s “Homegrown,” starring Thornton and Lynch, and Polygram’s “The Split” (formerly titled “Body Count”), which stars John Leguizamo, Ving Rhames, Forest Whitaker, Linda Fiorentino and David Caruso and is to be directed by Robert Spruill.
“Geyer has a fabulous eye for talent and great taste in material,” said Keith Addis. “We’re obviously very pleased that our goals as a company parallel his goals to combine the management of talent with the challenges of getting motion pictures made.”
Addis/Wechsler reps both film and TV actors, writers and filmmakers and has produced a number of films including Steven Soderbergh’s “sex, lies & videotape,” Gus Van Sant’s “Drugstore Cowboy,” Robert Altman’s “The Player” and Steve Buscemi’s “Trees Lounge.”
