Chilean miners land WME talent agent

Posted on

A note to struggling Hollywood actors pounding the pavement for representation: You’ve been going about this all wrong. If you really wanted a top talent agent, you should have been working in a Chilean copper mine.

All 33 of the trapped-then-rescued Chilean miners have signed their life rights to William Morris Endeavor. The rights include “TV, film, books, commercials, theatre and lectures” and “complete access to the daily journal kept by one of the miners throughout his ordeal.” (Note to self: If trapped in globally televised life or death struggle, keep a journal.) There hasn’t yet been an authorized portrayal of the incident, so expect that an official dramatization is coming soon to a theater, bookstore and lecture hall near you!
