In summer 2011, Fishman found himself face to face with a wolf. "We bought a lakeside cottage in Wisconsin, where I'm from, and this wolf was 15 yards away from me," he recalls. So the USC Law grad drove 50 miles to the nearest Wal-Mart to buy "bear spray," only to find "it was the size of a fire extinguisher." So he instead decided to carry a whistle, which might come in handy when Fishman deals with the two-legged wolves in Hollywood ("much more dangerous," he jokes). The laid-back surfer closed such high-profile deals as Rachel McAdams' for The Vow, Noomi Rapace's for Prometheus and Hailee Steinfeld's for Ender's Game, while also repping Clive Owen and Rachel Weisz.
