Strong finds Anonymous partner

Percentery union called 'a natural move'

HOLLYWOOD — Steve Golin’s management and production shingle Anonymous Content and Strong/Morrone Entertainment have announced a merger agreement, effective at the start of the new year.

Headed by Beverly Strong and Jeff Morrone, along with managers Maani Golesorkhi, Nils Larsen and staff, Strong/Morrone will relocate to Anonymous’ headquarters in Culver City.

Merger unites such acting talents as Rachael Leigh Cook (“Josie & the Pussycats,” “She’s All That”), Boris Kodjoe (“Brown Sugar”), Gabrielle Union (“Bad Boys 2,”) Gregory Smith (“The Patriot”) and Shane West (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) with Anonymous’ list of thesps and helmers. Anonymous reps Maura Tierney (TV’s “ER,” “Insomnia”), Kristen Johnston (“3rd Rock from the Sun”), Omar Epps (“Love and Basketball”), Patricia Clarkson (“Far From Heaven” and “Six Feet Under”), and actor/director Tony Goldwyn (“A Walk on the Moon”).

Anonymous also represents such feature writers/directors as Stephen Gaghan (“Traffic”), Marcus Raboy (“Friday After Next”) and Barry Blaustein (“The Nutty Professor”) and commercial/musicvideo directors that include Anonymous partners David Fincher (“Panic Room”), Mark Romanek (“One-Hour Photo”) and Gore Verbinski (“The Ring”).

Golin, in a statement, called the merger “a natural move” that grew out of a “long-held desire to grow our talent management division” as well as “the full-service, hands-on philosophy we share.”

Anonymous was established in August 1999 by Golin, a producer of such pics as “Wild At Heart” and “Nurse Betty.”

Strong/Morrone was established in 1998 by Beverly Strong, a former agent, publicist and Warner Bros. talent executive, and Jeff Morrone, former partner and talent agent at Innovative Artists Agency.
