Power Lawyers 2012
It’s been 25 years since Jacobson co-founded one of Hollywood’s most prolific talent firms, and his client list remains nearly peerless. This year, the married father of three closed Ryan Seacrest’s megapacts to stay with American Idol (at $15 million a year) and take an expanded role at Comcast; negotiated a new contract for NBCUniversal’s Bonnie Hammer; handled producer Mark Gordon’s Disney overall deal; and helped Magic Mike star Channing Tatum co-finance the surprise hit.
➻ My first client TV producer Michael Dinner, whom he signed in 1979 or 1980. “He was at AFI filming a short based on Miss Lonelyhearts.”
