How fun to come back from my last day on jury duty and find that Ed Limato has phoned me from his new William Morris Agency temporary digs — which is CEO Jim Wiatt’s own office! I see that, during my absence, the trades finally got around to announcing Ed’s tenpercentery move. Of course, DHD readers knew all about it back on Tuesday. (See my previous: EXCLUSIVE: Ed Limato Headed To Morris.) Both Limato and Morris CEO Jim Wiatt kept telling me this afternoon how “very, very” excited they are. I understand Ed was only free to talk to Morris Monday night and his deal was signed this morning. Limato will set up shop in the Morris conference room until the agency figures out where to put him and his entourage. Meanwhile, these Limato clients are officially moving over from ICM right now (there may be four more): Richard Gere, Mel Gibson, Steve Martin, Denzel Washington, Michael Biehn, Thomas Jane, Adrian Lyne, Derek Luke and Sam Neill.
