  • Do You Really Need an Agent?

    I’m dating a high school teacher. She’s a good person. This will end badly.
    But in the meantime, I’m trying my best to make it work. That’s why I said yes when she asked me to be a guest speaker at her school. The audience was a group of 40 students from the drama department. They were all cute and bright and very clean. You could eat off them.
    About halfway in, one of the kids surprised me with a question no one has ever asked before: “Do I really need an agent?” At first I laughed, but she was dead serious. The girl wanted an answer. And that made me wonder, do actors really, really need someone like me?
    If you’re a huge star like Brad Pitt or Amy Adams, the answer is probably no. The work will come to you and an attorney can negotiate the deal. But Brad and Amy are part of the privileged few.
    I would also argue that when you’re just starting out, you don’t really need an agent. A personal manager can step in and guide you to the point where you’re ready to start working. That means getting you in the right classes, making sure your pictures are great, and teaching you the ins and outs of the business.  
    But the vast majority of actors fall somewhere in
