Inside Move: Rep books time

WMA's Carlson disliked 'administrative' part of the job

William Morris Agency motion picture lit topper Rob Carlson is stepping down as head of the department, but has reupped with the tenpercentery. He will now focus his attention exclusively on his own lit clients — who include Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy”); Ed Solomon (“Men in Black”); Steve Oedekerk (“Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls”); John A. Davis (“Jimmy Neutron”) and Rob Cohen (“XXX”).

Carlson assumed administrative responsibility for WMA’s motion picture writers and directors departments in April 2000, concurrent with the elevation of talent agent Jon Fogelman to head of the motion picture talent department.

Carlson said “Two and a half years was enough” and that “frankly, the administrative aspect of the job got boring.”

A spokesman for the agency confirmed the restructuring and said Fogelman would add Carlson’s administrative responsibilities to his own in an effort to streamline the management of the two departments.
