Scherz joins Endeavor after exit from UTA

Unknown if Bardem, other clients to follow tenpercenter

Elyse Scherz will join Endeavor as talent agent. She ankled United Talent Agency on Dec. 20 and promptly entered into negotiations with Endeavor.

Scherz, who’d worked with current Endeavor partners John Lesher and Patrick Whitesell while they were at UTA, will start when the tenpercentery reopens for business today.

She had been an agent at UTA for nine years after two years as an assistant in the agency’s motion picture lit department.

While at UTA, Scherz’s clients included Javier Bardem, Gael Garcia Bernal, Peter Coyote and Goran Visnjic.

Because her exit from UTA occurred at the start of the holidays, Scherz’s clients have not been contacted about her move; it is not clear which of them will follow her.

“I grew up at UTA and am so thankful for the opportunities I was given there. It’s been an incredibly positive experience,” said Scherz in a statement, calling the Endeavor move “this new chapter in my career.”

Prior to joining UTA, Scherz line-produced Aerosmith docu “The Making of ‘Pump’ ” and worked on the television series “Against the Law,” starring Michael O’Keefe. She’d also had her own commercial and musicvideo production company, Picture Park.

In a joint statement, Endeavor’s partners praised Scherz for excelling at “representing both actors and directors” and added that “her international experience and her knowledge of key festivals make her a great addition to the Endeavor team.”
