Flockhart flies off for United

'Ally' star cites wish for greater West Coast involvement

Calista Flockhart has changed agencies, moving from the Gersh Agency in New York to United Talent Agency in Los Angeles.

Flockhart, who had been repped at Gersh for the last six years, said through a spokeswoman that the amicable parting was a geographic issue stemming from a desire for greater West Coast involvement.

Her representative at Gersh, Gotham-based talent veepee Bill Butler, was not reachable for comment late Friday afternoon.

Flockhart rose to stardom atop Twentieth Television’s “Ally McBeal,” the popular hourlong gaveler on the Fox network.

Thesp has also made several recent ventures into feature film and in theater. She starred last year in Michael Hoffman’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” for Fox Searchlight and appeared Off Broadway in Neil LaBute’s legiter “Bash.”

In her most recent pic, the Rodrigo Garcia-helmed “Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her,” Flockhart appears among an ensemble cast that includes Glenn Close, Holly Hunter and Cameron Diaz. But the pic, which was to have relaunched the United Artists label, instead found its theatrical distribbing abruptly yanked earlier this summer. It will instead bow on pay cabler Showtime (Daily Variety, June 30).

Flockhart will be repped by a team of agents at UTA that were not identifiable late Friday.
