Mel Gibson Dropped by Talent Agency

Mel Gibson Dropped by Talent Agency

Mel Gibson has been dropped by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, his talent agency.

The 54-year-old actor’s longtime agent, Ed Limato, passed away earlier this month, and a new William Morris rep will not take his place and represent Mel.

“At this point he doesn’t seem to be in need of an agent,” a spokesman for Mel told THR, noting that he has two projects coming up – The Beaver, also starring Jodie Foster, and How I Spent My Summer Vacation.

It’s been a rough past few weeks for Mel, who allegedly acted violently and was verbally abusive with ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

  • Anthony

    Everyone should keep their distance from him, he is a sick excuse for a person at this point. He needs some serious help asap

  • Darren

    Lmfao, burn.

  • Celia

    Good. That’s what he deserves.
    He has no excuse this time, because he wasn’t drunk.
    Mel Gibson is clearly an evil bigot.

  • cady

    WME is probably comprised of 90% jewish employees. it’s no wonder he was dropped.

  • Jonte

    bye bit.ch

  • ck

    I’m guessing he’s blaming many ethnic groups for his troubles – and not himself.

  • [marie]

    Not in need of an agent..? With that tape of him dropping the N-bomb leaking out looks like he won’t be in need of a career.

    Fuhkin WORTHLESS…

  • wow

    @cady: It’s not just Jews he’s been racist about, you racist.

  • Joise

    Say bye-bye Hollywoood :D you’ll never work in this town again, Mel, better try Greenland, I heard they are 15 years behind in everything, they probably just saw Braveheart, you’ll be a star again!!

  • Marianne

    Well I’m absolutely shocked….*eye roll*

  • Mila

    @wow How is Casy racist you moron?
    She said WME has a lot of Jewish employees. A lot of the entertainment business is comprised of Jewish film makers, agents, managers etc.
    There’s nothing wrong with that all! If anything something to be proud of. Where is the racism dummy

  • James

    Good and this should only be the start. I hope he gets everything he deserves for being the vile, controlling abusive douche he turned out to be. I just want to see some justice in Hollywood for once. Lilo being sentenced is a start, this is a START.

  • Nate

    Excellent.

  • Jermaine

    Wonder how his 2 ‘projects’ are going to do.

  • blinded

    @Jermaine: He still has his crazy fans.

  • blinded

    LMAO at one of his fans thumbing people down

  • yo sista

    Such a shame. He’s a wonderful actor and a Hollywood legend. (Thumb me down if you want, he’s still gonna be that way.)

  • TRUTH HURTS.

    Mel Gibson needs to go watch THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.
    I am sure his career is on life support this time.

  • whatever

    I’m so tired of this jerk, he needs to evaporate altogether.

  • ben

    He gives Christians such a terrbile name.

  • Piper

    Jared, there’s nothing “alleged” about his abuse. Verbal abuse is just as bad as the physical kind and no one who have listened to the tape can list his action as anything but abuse!

    What he said was totally out of line. No man should speak to a woman that way – EVER.
    .
    That being said, something doesn’t seem right about this Oksana woman. As soon as he started dating her I thought, “When’s the cash grab going to be.”
    .
    He’s despicable, but she seems shifty; perhaps they’re perfect for each other. Or maybe Mel is getting his comeuppance… not sure where I stand yet.

    @wow:

    I don’t think @cadie was being racist, she was merely pointing out that WME is mostly composed of one of the races he doesn’t approve of

  • CanadaGirl

    Sorry… don’t know what happened with my comment. I only submitted once. Didn’t intend to bombard you all. :(

  • POOCHIE

    Douchebag!!!!! So disrespectful towards women, jews, & lord knows who else.

  • T pain

    Ugliest guy ever.
    Say bye to your career Mel!

  • sassygirl

    Successful men should BEWARE of skanks!

  • Go Ask Alice

    Team Ronbin Gibson. Hopefully,she took her welldeserved 1/2 which is about 400 million.

    Mel Gibson, boy how far he has fallen…from the 1980;s with Lethal Weaponmpovies,People Mag sexiest man alive, Mr. family guy, even if there were rumors of cheating, no proof and his beloved and devoted quiet wife did not divorce him,to leaving her and taking up with the Eastern Black wh ore, with whom he met, and had a baby with in a blink of eye, and now she did not get her pay off of millions like she thought, and he thought this woman wanted him and was to stay with him,well, here the mess is.

    All Mel needs to do and Okasna is call off the investigation, get the police out, pay her about 10 million cash , just for her, mansion around 5 million, and of course about 25, 000 a month for the child.

    Mel needs to pay up and stfu and Oksana needs to take her millions and stfu.

    Mel then needs to stop the movie making and lay low for the next of his life.

  • Jen

    Who is surprised that his agency dropped him? I’m only surprised they didn’t do it sooner. He is a dirtbag, a disgusting racist, sexists, homophobic, anti-semitic dirtbag. I hope he’s is going to be dropped by everyone. And I hope once all the proof of his abuse, both physical and verbal is in, he’ll end up charged and going to jail.

  • tim

    Mel is a pig
    yes she might be a money hungry star screwer but there is no excuse for this horrible behavior
    he is a racist misogynist pig!
    what is he thinking
    who is he going to hate next?
    he is so disgusting!
    who cares what she looks like- yes she has plastic boobs,lips and nose but no excuse for him
    I hope his career is in the toilet!
    And it has nothing to do with Jewish people at his talent agency
    he is a client that is troubled needs help and they probably couldn’t be bothered handling this
    next we will get a tirade against Asian people, hindus, French people
    who knows who else
    SICK PIG!

  • chelseakk

    I heard the tape he sounded drunk out of his mind. well its no excuse but yeah dont think he was sober lol. he was stammering his words and going on and on and repeating himself. what drunks love to do best lol. He is in my prayers he clearly needs help.

  • Times a tickin

    @wow: You do know that being Jewish is a religion not a race right? Being against Jews is not racism, but discrimination actually.

  • Times a tickin

    I think saying the n word was wrong but I do agree with him that she did dress like a whore, but he was the one who chose to be with her in the first place so why complain after so long? He seems like a scumbag but she is no angel either. The recording was setup by her so of course she only released what she wanted the media to hear. Releasing this to the media truly shows her true colors as a goldigger. I hope they both get the help that they so obviously need. In the end, it’s their poor child who will suffer. NO child deserves nutjobs or goldiggers for parents. My heart goes out to the child.

  • Twinkle

    @Jermaine:

    I’m pretty sure the producers of his projects are thinking they could have spent their money better by flushing it down the toilet.

  • @ CanadaGirl

    Maybe, you should stand against someone who has a history of decades of saying despicable things about women (see his 1995 article rant), his family history of anti-Semitism, they even built their own church and broke away from the Catholic church to spout their ignorant hatred to the masses. Maybe it’s not EVER okay for anyone to say and do such viles things as he’s been caught from SEVERAL sources as doing. Were the cops lying about his ant-Semitism, was the magazine lying about his misogynist rant, was the tape doctored to make Mel look bad, did Oksana make Mel cheat on his former wives for decades even before she ever met him? Was OJ framed by history and the entire police department? Whatever Oksana is, she didn’t make him become vile, she just recorded it for posterity. Let’s not excuse horrific behavior by blaming the victim. That’s like saying a woman is raped b/c of what she wears or a person is robbed b/c they carried a wallet or a purse.

  • @ CanadaGirl Correction

    Oops.

    “Wife”- singular, NOT plural.

  • Yeah, not surprised. Pretty sure most Hollywood actors are secret dbags but they all have good Publicist and agents so it never comes out.

  • WICKED WENCH

    @blinded: I imagine the KKK will promote the films at their weekly meetings – they have to support each other.

  • jo

    exzcuse me JJ, but mel has not “had a rough patch”, he IS the rough patch!!!

    It is surely now way overdue that beautiful people are NOT always put up onto pedestals!! Beautiful people get away with far too much. They (we) are no better than anyone else. Beauty is in character!

  • sassygirl

    Please explain the difference between Mel’s little bitch fight with his girlfriend in a PRIVATE conversation that his ho used to extort money from Mel or sold for a lot of money to Radaronline or RAP music. Do you care about YOUR right to privicy? do you want YOUR little rants sold to YOUR employer or used to take YOUR kids away from you. People better start to think about what this all means to YOUR private life!

    Mel’s rant really doesn’t seem much different then a rap record> all you people are going nuts. Like you have never heard an argument before? arguments between to Former lovers is never pretty. Not defending Mel, I’m just saying you people all sound like you go to CHURCH everyday. You got no problems with two men screwing each other in the butt and “having children” but an argument between Mel and his former girlfriend, my word, you’ve all turned to saints.

  • jaye

    I read on another site that the agency DROPPED him. That’s probably why his rep. is saying he doesn’t need an agent, damage control. If someone has already commented on this , my bad; I didn’t read all the comments.

  • sassygirl

    his agent DIED!

  • Morgan

    He’s a hot mess.
