    Why he matters: When not turning his stars into superheroes (The Avengers' Scarlett JohanssonGuardians of the Galaxy's Zoe Saldana), Yorn, managing partner of the firm he co-founded, likes to expand beyond traditional entertainment confines.

    Big deal: Yorn this year worked on the deal to renew Ellen DeGeneres' talk show through 2016-17, and her Finding Nemo character will be the focus of its long-awaited sequel, Finding Dory. While working out the deal with Pixar, "of course they didn't tell us what the title was," says Yorn. "That would have been really bad for them. But she was going to do it no matter what."
