Stein to ankle William Morris

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s former agent Robert Stein is leaving the William Morris Agency after seven years at the tenpercentary.

Stein, who held the title of WMA’s worldwide co-head of motion pictures with Mike Simpson, has ankled in what was termed “a mutual decision.”

Stein is expected to remain in the representation business, although it’s unclear whether that would be in the capacity of agenting or managing.

At WMA, Stein worked with clients such as the Weitz Bros., Ray Romano, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, all of whom are expected to remain at the agency.

In addition to Schwarzenegger, who left WMA last summer, Stein also saw the departure of Frank Darabont in August. Both Darabont and Schwarzenegger are now repped by CAA.

In 2001, a former WMA assistant sued Stein and the agency in L.A. Superior Court for sexual battery and professional misconduct.

Stein came to WMA in 1996 from UTA, where he had been a founding partner. Prior to that, he was a partner in Leading Artists Agency.
