WME: Agency #2 (25 Contacts, Names & Numbers)

WME Agency is 2nd largest in the world… and trying harder



Proper name is William Morris Endeavor. It was merely just William Morris but merged in 2009 with a second agency Endeavor and it was called WME2 and now just WME.

The agency was started in 1898 by a German immigrant, William Morris (aka: Zelman Moses), who represented Vaudeville Acts and during the silent film era Mr Morris and his agency represented Charlie Chaplin, Mae West, the Marx Brothers and Al Jolsen.

In 1930 Mr Morris sr turned over the agency to his son and passed away in 5 years during which time his son relocated the agency to California, first at Hollywood & Vine and then Beverly where it is still today.

In 1949 the agency purchased the Berg-Allenberg and added Frank Capra, Clark Gable & Judy Garland to its roster with clients that already included Sammy Davis Jr, Milton Berle & Rita Hayworth.

With the arrival of television, William Morris was the first agency to capitalize on it for it’s clients and now represented Bill Cosby, Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke, all tv stars, as well as movie stars like Jack Lemmon, Katherine Hepburn, Walter Matthau, Steve McQueen, Marilyn Monroe, Kim Novak, Elvis Presley & Frank Sinatra,

William Morris, never standing still with complacency, now ventured in the ’50s & 60s into the music business and became a powerhouse by representing The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Sonny & Cher and the Byrds and in 1973 the agency was the first to establish a Nashville office.

Today, post 2000, the agency had it’s first true crisis as fellow agents George Lane and Mark Cardonick left to open CAA (today’s largest agency in the world) was founded along with Michael Ovitz, Ron Meyer, William Haber, etc., but bounced back in 2009 with a merger with boutique agency Endeavor and formed today’s WME in the former Endeavor office on Wilshire Blvd.

Like CAA, WME has had a massive infusion of equity capital from Private Equity Firm “Silver Lake Partners” and has used the cash, like CAA, to get into the sports promotion and marketing business by buying IMG.



HOT TIP: Secret way to get into Hollywood (I’m sure you’ve heard about it, now try it) and become an Agent (this is where you start), and then a Development Executive, or a Producer… that is assuming you’re not making millions as being an agent

AGENT TRAINING PROGRAM: Great Tidbit of info. The “mailroom” is actually a phrase used at William Morris for it’s in-house agency training program…which is a superb way to learn the business and become a deal-maker, assuming you have amazing personal skills & a super-human work-ethic & are blessed with being an amazing salesman.  PS. Why not phone William Morris Endeavor (see number below) and apply to the training program, move to Beverly Hills and start dealmaking (Note: It ain’t gonna be that easy)


You start off in the basement with 20-30 other Phi Beta Kappa grads. You literally go office-to-office and deliver the mail… and you are in hopes that within 4-months you get an actual desk, and become Assistant #2, with an agent.


Where CAA has over 5,000 Agents & Employees, WME, being #2, has about 4,000 Agents & Employees and is the only agency with “smart elevators”.

Duh? Huh? I am not going to explain what “smart elevators” (ADD sidebar) are but when you take your project and go to the Beverly Hills office, walk past the lobby’s receptionist, where you query about WME floor number and you press that floor on the elevator button what occurs will “make you stupid”.

Oh, I got it they purposely put in elevators, called smart, that actually make you dumb, and now you are ready to be taken advantage of at a meeting…. very interesting.

Confused… Next time in Beverly Hills, park your car, and walk to 9601 Wilshire Blvd (you’ll quickly find the door is not on Wilshire… very interesting), Beverly Hills, CA 90210 and walk inside an press a button on the elevator… I promise “you will feel dumb”.

    WME Entertainment
    Ari Emanuel CEO
    9601 Wilshire Blvd,
    Beverly Hills, CA 90210

    Mr. Ari Emanuel:
    Per my last letter to you, I explained the responsibility of A Just Cause to conduct an extensive investigation into the humiliation and racial and gender bias being shown to Tanique Wright, Vice President of HR for Professional Bull Riders. Through that investigation and our own internal research, we continue to find disturbing things happening within your organization. This has solidified our efforts to bring justice to Ms. Wright and hold you and your executives accountable for allowing this type of behavior to continue.

    A Just Cause is aware of a former employee of Endeavor (formally WME), Adam Venit’s decision to leave WME, Endeavor amid sexual harassment allegations involving actor Terry Crews, who said, “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD. Why? Because this kind of thing happened to me.” It appears that Endeavor/WME embraces the humiliation of all human beings.

    Terry Crews is being contacted regarding Ms. Wright as well. This appears to be a culture problem at WME, and your clients who may not be aware of WME’s toxic environment are already being contacted by A Just Cause.
    AS stated in my previous email communication to you and your Executives, this campaign has already begun and will aggressively go forward. The sad fact that Bill Orielly was also part of WME/Endeavour, is painting a very unfavorable view of your Company. The humiliation of Tanique Wright, an African American Executive, is proof of the “Weinstein Culture” and the discrimination of women demonstrated at WME/Endeavour.
    Be aware the following Media Outlets have been CC’d on this communication:
    CBS News, ABC News reporter Byron Pitts, The Washington Post, Fox News, New York Times, ACLU LA Times and many more.

  9. Linda Wise says:

    After the shaming of the unequal pay bomb that went off lately … I’m just saying “I think every woman in the country and beyond should BOYCOTT this agency and any movies, etc… from this establishment” Shame on you for the slap in the face to every female that has ever worked and tried to raise a family on a dime while their spouse lives off of them. Women are human too and are raising families. How are we to get ahead in life for our children if companies like yours is working against us for the sake of profit for their own. op

  12. Craig Lines says:

    Dear Mike Rosenfeld,

    We’re just wondering what’s going on, especially with you personally, and your subsequent refelection on your company .. perhaps you can elucidate – as a supposedly high up member of staff in a communications company, you are certainly not very adept at communicating.

    Terse, abrupt, dismissive, conceited and arrogant are just 5 of the adjectives that have been said about you. We’re certainly not used to this treatment especially when we are offering a lot of money to an actor who doesn’t seem to be up to much right now – are your representatives really not willing to talk about this? I doubt it – we suspect that you are just feeling too self important to even consider getting back to us. Our normal dealings with”agents” are polite and accommodating, and they communicate with alacrity. We are sorry that you are the person who has been allocated as our contact. 

    I will be contacting Tobey directly from now on – we just thought we should, out of politeness, go through the ‘proper channels’. As I am a double BAFTA award winning Director, who has dealt with dozens of agents and casting directors over the past 25 years you can rest assured that I will not be speaking highly of you and your style in the future.

What makes Channel Hue unique is that all of its programme material is original and produced in-house – no other channel in the Philippines has ever done this – and no other channel has ever had such great ambition, ethos and objectives.

  13. Yousef says:

    I am trying to get in touch with 1 of the Actor Agents in WME.

  15. Dear Sir/Madam,

    Am an author based in Pune, Maharashtra, India having got published 3 books THE BRIGHT SIDE OF THE DARK (Poems and Poetic acts), THE DESERT OF WATER (Short stories) and A BLIND NEEDLE (Short stories) till date. The first 2 books were published in US by SBPRA and the latest one in London, UK by Austin Macaulay. I sincerely think that the chapters or plots or themes in these books have a good potential of blossoming into a Hollywood movie. My next title THE HOSTAGES OF GOD would be released soon.l.

    Am a lawyer by profession having my own firm and associates In Pune city. I practice in Pune courts as well as in Mumbai High Court. Since my young age, I had an invisible attraction for the literature and writers which may have culminated into a flair for writing.

    THE HOSTAGES OF GOD is a book based on the theme that God is not the supreme authority to judge my actions and I have every right to challenge the concept known as God. As such, there can’t be any blind following of the so called supreme authority and if you observe carefully, then you will find a lot of dichotomy and double standards in the society we live. So I have tried to challenge as far as possible the so called concept of God in a sarcastic way and throw light on the customs and traditions wherein how the sincere disciples of God are kept as hostages by the so called supreme authority under the garb of worship, insecurities and fear.

    With warm regards,

  21. D. Gordic says:

    Seeking an opportunity to get in touch with Mr. David Cronenberg. On numerous occasions I had been likened to one of his favorite actors namely Viggo Mortensen and if that can be used in any of his future endeavors, I would like to be part of that action. What I mean, there is a great physical resemblance between Mr. Mortensen and myself that may be, perhaps, utilized in some way.

  23. Dr. Sheldon Wernow says:

    Please forward to your football and soccer Agents to protect their clients.

    If you know football answer the riddle: Tell me something a football player wears that is not for safety?…….. And will increase the chance of tearing an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)?….. And the public is kept in the dark (similar to the concussion lawsuit)?? Answer: Cleats.
    Please Help
    WE NEED TO START A GRASS ROOTS MOVEMENT. Our student athletes who tore their ACL while wearing cleats (male or female) playing football or soccer may be entitled to a large financial compensation. PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR FRIENDS BY PRESSING SHARE ON FACEBOOK. THANK YOU!

    Important points for a Class Action Law Suit:
    1. Cleats increase risk of tearing ones ACL… Proven and documented in scientific journals of note (over 30 authors to depose), but kept from the public. It is a lie of omission! Cleats take away the knee saving natural ability to slide because they nail you to the ground! Are there alternatives to cleats? YES!
    2. Student Athletes are the Guinea Pigs for the artificial turf experiment. Did you sign a waiver for your student athlete (boy, girl, football, soccer, high school, NCAA,) to be involved in this experiment to replace grass? If you play pro do you realize you are a Guinea Pig for the artificial turf experiment? Does artificial turf have an effect on the risk of tearing your ACL? Scroll down and look at the scientific research by Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Stanford University.

    A small sample of scientific proof of which I have much more I will share to win your lawsuit …..Sorry but I redacted some words, to protect my research! Please call the number on the billboard; based on the science you should be entitled to a large financial compensation in a court of law. Please note the large number of scientists, M.D., Ph.D. and researchers plus the respected institutions they represent who agree. Also please note the highly regarded peer review journals the articles are published in.

    Are there alternatives to cleats? YES! Swivel Cleat Shoe -Bruce M. Cameron, Otho Davis The swivel football shoe: A controlled study: Fixation of the foot through rigid cleating is a primary factor in the production of football knee and ankle injuries. The swivel shoe principle developed in 1962 was moved forward with Hanley’s cleat- less heal. Then a 360 degree turntable was added to the forefoot. Over 350 different designs were made over 6 years. It was successfully tested in 1969. Many respected authors quote this research which states the swivel cleat worked. No one knows why it was not adapted? US3816945A – Swivel cleat shoe – Google Patents. There is also a patented retractable cleat that the Ph.D. engineers say show “proof of concept.” Nike told the inventor they were testing it and then after months completely stopped communicating with the inventor and we see nothing of it.

    Everyone knows football is dangerous so why do we need to be told we are risking our knees? Everyone knows floors are dangerous so why do we need to be told when Macy’s mops a floor? Answer: It is unfair not to tell someone when you take a dangerous entity (floor, football) and make it more dangerous. Like making a floor wet or lacing your daughter into cleats and you do not know you just made playing soccer a dangerous sport to the knee by nailing her into the grass with cleats! There are alternatives. Even the Romans stopped enjoying seeing people hurt!
