Mel Gibson

Dropped by Agent

7/9/2010 7:13 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0708-mel-gibson-bn-getty-01Mel Gibson has been dropped by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment -- his agents.

Gibson had been repped by famed agent Ed Limato, who died a week ago.

Apparently, Ari Emanuel, the main honcho at the agency, has had it out for Mel since TMZ broke the story about the actor's anti-Semitic rant following his DUI arrest in 2006.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ari has just been waiting for the moment to strike, and the moment has come.

Oh no!    

I think we need to make Mel our UN Ambassador.

We need to bring back the hottie Russian spy Anna Chapman, and make her Secretary of State. Hillary can go work for Putin. She admires him anyway.

Oh, and free Lindsay!!!

Nuff said, TMZ.

Well ARI finally got even. He couldn't wait to dump Mel. However Mel was right about one thing. JEWS do run Hollywood and only promote their own. They will in turn however, take him back and sell their morals and eithics up the river if they think they can make money off him.

It's just as hilarious to me as when you read about a Jewish attorney defending terror suspects. It's laughable, because the Muslim extremists despise JEWS the most ,as well as anyone who (like the US gov't) constantly bends to their entitlements and demands. Yet to make a quick NICKEL, Jewish guys will defend the terrorists and even get them off. Thus in turn, they jeapordize the future of the country as well as their own children's safety and future just to make the immediate cash and get notoriety. HMMMMMMM
Hence, I believe, Ari Gold Farb Witz Stein Berg Emanuel, will certainly take Mel back if he thinks there's a dime in it.

Headline is slightly misleading. Gibson's agent died last week and no one at William Morris likely has the skill and experience to pick up the account where it is. I don't fully understand what Gibson would use an agent for anyway. Does he act when he's not making money?

It's a little bit surprising that someone would wait patiently for Mel to slip and then retaliate for his rant from four years ago. Ari appears too vindictive.

Mr. Mel Gibson is a very sick, very troubled man.I have just listened to the audio recording of his rant at partner Oksana. She needs to stay away from him. He is dangerous, controlling, abusive and rage filled. His ass needs to be thrown in jail as he is clearly not willing to get help although he has every resource available to heal himself. I am ashamed for him. Truly. What a waste of intelligence and talent. He has allowed himself to become nothing but a waste of human flesh. If I were Oksana and he had laid his hands on me in an abusive way (and I believe he did hurt her) I would feel quite compelled to take him for every red cent he is worth. Oksana, you are in my prayers and I believe you to be a strong, intelligent, graceful woman. Stay strong and for God's sake get an order of protection against that beast! He will kill you if you don't.

He's better off without her. She was just using him for his money and set him up. Everything he said about her in that tape was justified. He was looking out for her safety and she didn't care. Send her back to Russia or whereever. She's probably a spy - trade her for one of ours.

any actor or producer who works with mel after all these allegations is nothing more then a sell-out. Those that choose to work with this bigot/racist are merely showing their support for Mel and in-directly his beliefs.

Birds of a feather

How does all this affect his ability to act? So what if he's not politically correct. Almost all people that are famous are repulsive if put under a microscope. I bet Justin Beiber is a furious little wanker when the lights are out.

I love Mel. He is allowed to hate blacks and jews if he wants to. This is still America, and geeze ... you can call a girl a Bitch, but you can't take a swing at her? Come on...we all do it. I love you Mel. Mad Max the original V.01 rules.

Aye, lie and I may have a few dumb fans. Hide, and my career may live... at least a while. And lying in my head, many days from now, I would be willin' to trade ALL the minutes, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come out of hiding and tell my dwindling fans that they may take my fame, but they'll never take... MY RACISM!

:P

Yeah, why should Mel worry lol!! He has enough money that he never has to work again in his lifetime even after Robyns divorce settlement!! If he never makes another dime in films I'm pretty sure he's savvy enough like all stars to have property investments etc etc lol!!
Agents are 10 a penny in Hollywood and everywhere else and Mel's not going to be as unpopular as many seem to think lol!!

QUOTE: We need a Hollywood Pay Czar. Limit the income of these people and the income of these agencies, and movie studios, and these groups will less likely misbehave, tolerate misbehavior, and attract the trash (Oksana) that they do.
