“I’m given the freedom to go out and find talented comedians and writers who have no credits,” he says. The strategy is paying off with clients such as the droll comedian Aubrey Plaza, who landed plum roles in NBC’s Parks and Recreation and the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, and writer-actor-rapper Donald Glover. Walter first got his showbiz close-up in elementary school when the original The Karate Kid shot across the street from his home in Reseda. After graduating from USC as a communications major/film minor, he did a stint at William Morris and then was hired for an assistant gig for producer-manager Gavin Polone. “It was a crash course in filmmaking in production, because he was still managing clients,” including Conan O’Brien and Larry David. In May 2002, he landed at 3 Arts. “I love pitching ideas and bouncing stuff off the wall,” says Walter, who's married with two young sons. “Getting any client their first gig is truly the most exciting moment.”
