    Why he matters: Warren's roster list of A-list stars is as impressive as any lawyer's: Leonardo DiCaprio, Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron, Drew Barrymore and Zooey Deschanel, to name a few.

    Big deal: Last summer, Warren negotiated a $10 million payday for client Jennifer Lawrence to reprise her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The deal consisted of a combination of salary, bonuses and escalators and could even exceed the $10 million figure depending on the box-office performance of the November sequel.
