Gorin exits ICM for WMA

Clients include Ramsey, Kouf, Chbosky

And Jeff Gorin makes it 15.

The young motion picture literary agent and Jim Wiatt protege has ankled International Creative Management for the William Morris Agency — rejoining his old patriarch and more than a dozen other former ICM folk hired by WMA’s Wiatt.

Gorin reps clients that include writers Ben Ramsey (“The Big Hit”), Brian King (“Company Man”) and Stu Gibbs (“Repli-Kate”); scribe Jim Kouf (“Rush Hour”); screenwriters Steve Chbosky (“Rent”) and Craig Titley (“The Tenth Master”); and writer-helmer Sebastian Gutierrez (“Judas Kiss”).

At ICM, Gorin also co-repped helmer Adrian Lyne, and actor-director Jonathan Frakes but both of the directors will remain with ICM.

Gorin, 29, called the move “like being with family — that sort of feeling,” and credited Wiatt for “first believing in me and making me an agent.”

Gorin had started on the desk of then-ICM agent Ari Emmanuel and, later, ICM ten-percenter-turned-Artisan topper Bill Block before landing on Wiatt’s desk. He became an agent 3-1/2 years ago.

ICM, not to be caught short, has made its own strides in the motion picture lit personnel department: The shop recently attracted Broder Kurland Webb Uffner motion picture literary agent Dan Rabinow, who will join ICM in the first week of July.

Rabinow’s clients include “Teen Movie” scribe Buddy Johnson; Philip Stark, who penned “Dude, Where’s My Car?”; and Gary Hardwick, who wrote Sony’s “The Brothers.” But as with Gorin, though, it remains unclear which clients will ultimately follow Rabinow to his new home.
