Matt Dillon Fires Endeavor; CAA-bound?

1/9/2007 2:22 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Matt DillonBreaking News: Matt Dillon discharged the Endeavor agency today, and sources tell TMZ that he appears to be headed towards Creative Artists Agency.

(Then again, he might take a meeting or two; whatever the case, Endeavor is in his rear-view mirror.)

Regardless of where Dillon winds up, his departure elicited the funniest agency remark of the day: Said one rival agency wag, "Why'd he leave Endeavor? Well, when Kevin Dillon is hotter than Matt Dillon, it's 'Houston, we have a problem.'"

All kidding aside, Dillon tried the 'make interesting pictures at cut-rate prices' route: "Crash" won Best Picture last year largely because of his performance as a lecherously racist L.A. cop. Now it might be time to do better than execrable stuff like "You, Me and Dupree" and make some watchable studio movies at a new shop.

Matt Dillon has been one of my all time favorite actors since I first saw him in Over th Edge and some 40 movies later he still is. He is not by any means overshadowed by his brother. His brother is on an excellent show, is very talented and will continue to be such but he is no better or no worse then his brother. He is just in the hot show Entourage, which is on the front burner right now so he is getting more attention. Matt has nothing to be worried about he has the talent to sustain him in the business he has chosen and you will never see the last of him, ever!! Keep the good work comming and you will always have a supporter in me.
