    Power Lawers 2012
    Patti Felker

    Felker calls this the “year of crossover success,” citing film and TV producer clients Dan Fogelman, Greg Berlanti and Kevin Williamson. “They’re literally doing everything simultaneously,” she boasts. So is longtime client Jeremy Renner, who she  half-jokingly suggests is “in everything,” including August’s The Bourne Legacy. The dresseddown New York native — she was spotted at the June Ted premiere wearing her trademark sweat pants — often gets together with friends to play games like Rummikub and Quiddler. To her dismay, she’s had to scale back on her other hobby, bowling, but her average is an impressive 167.

    Most satisfying career moment “When I told writer-producer Phil Rosenthal he could live with me. We had grown up together in New City, New York, and I saw him on the street one day. He told me he was leaving L.A. because he hadn’t found work. I just believed in him, and I told him he could move in. He lived with me for a year [then went on to create Everybody Loves Raymond].”
