At the Emmys in September, Gendler will be rooting for Showtime's Homeland a little louder than most: He reps co-creators Howard Gordon and Alex Gansa, part of a stellar roster of showrunners (Sons of Anarchy's Kurt Sutter, David E. Kelley), acting icons (Meryl Streep, Steve Martin) and filmmakers (Rob Marshall, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci). The father of two, who recently added actor Chris Pine as a client, cites loyalty as his guiding mantra. "The most satisfying part of the practice is being with people for the evolution of their careers, the ups and the downs." ➻ My first client Gendler signed Kelley back when he was a staff writer on L.A. Law.
