Contacting Celebrities
July 28, 2004 10:08 AM   Subscribe

OK, so a friend wants to contact a celebrity's publicist / representation. He wants to send some photos taken of him with the celebrity that he promised to send when he got them developed. How can somebody find out who represents a celeb? He'd probably be willing to call around, if he just knew what kinds of people to call...do you just ring up the Walter Morris Agency and ask who represents so-and-so?

imdb-pro (the subscriber service) lists contacts/agents. i believe you can do a free trial for the subscriber service, but i'm not sure. (i do not know anyone with a subscription to imdb-pro, or i'd offer to find out for you).

There's a good chance you can find the answer on Who Represents, if the celeb in question is Hollywood-based.

Up until a few months ago, you could have went to whorepresents.com, but (alas) they are now a subscriber site.

That probably leaves you with the option of phoning the Actor's Guild.

I'll bet said celeb's official website probably has some sort of mention of representation somewhere (although it could be pretty buried).

I know this tags me forever as impossibly juvenile...

But I love the way "Who Represents" reads as "whore presents" when you see it as the URL.

But then, I also used to giggle over the self-reviewing name of the old DTP program, "Publish It."

Call the celeb's union guild. If they're an actor, call SAG, if they're a director, the DGA, a writer, WGA. Then simply asks for their reps contact information. I've done this many times. It's free, fast, and simple.

Seconding the SAG recommendation and the IMDB Pro recommendation.

Baltimore - If you like that, you'll love the antiques exchange URL.

I had a link to a site that listed celebs and the campaign contributions they made and they had their agents listed as their addresses. But damn if I can't find that link now!!

Is Walter Morris William's brother?

I'm glad I'm not the only one giggling at whorepresents.

Pat Kingsley (PMK) represents a lot of the heavyweights--you could try them.

Or you could mention who the celeb is, because there is a chance that a MeFite might know. Or know someone who knows. Or something like that.

You could try HBO or the production company that makes his show...
