    WME, agent

    Dunlap tied down the sexiest deal of 2013 when he helped client Dakota Johnson land the coveted role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey.

    The Chicago native, who has repped Johnson for her entire acting career, is known for his roster of young talent, with such clients as Carrie star Chloe Moretz (who next appears opposite Denzel Washington in 2014's The Equalizer reboot) and Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, the next two Hobbit films).

    The Trinity College graduate, who with his wife is expecting a daughter early next year, booked Will Poulter in a lead role in the upcoming film The Maze Runner. He also helped sign Alison Brie (Mad Men, Community) and recently began working with Garrett Hedlund.

    FIRST JOB: The mailroom at Endeavor.

    IF I'M NOT WORKING: You'll probably find me hanging with my wife and my dog, Rocco. I'm kind of a homebody, and I like to watch a lot of Chicago sports. Soon, you'll probably find me buying diapers.

    IF I WEREN'T IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY: I'd probably be in advertising. I worked at an ad agency in New York for a couple of years before I moved out here.

    MOST MEANINGFUL THING IN MY OFFICE: A soapbox, which is something that my wife had made for me by an artist as a joke. It says "Andy's Soapbox" on it because [my wife] says I'm always pontificating.

    POWER DRINKS SPOT: Chateau Marmont for a vodka on the rocks.
