Brian Medavoy, Erwin More Reopen More/Medavoy Management
Brian Medavoy and Erwin More have reunited to relaunch More/Medavoy Management, effective immediately.
The duo was previously together for 15 years. In the 1990s they represented talent including Jason Bateman, Tobey Maguire, Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Mariska Hargitay, David Schwimmer, Maria Bello, Peter Berg and Jenna Elfman. More/Medavoy also produced popular TV series such as Dharma & Greg and Just Shoot Me, in addition to the R.J. Cutler-directed docuseries American High, which garnered the producers an Emmy Award in 2001.
In the years since, Medavoy continued working as a manager, currently under his eponymous shingle Medavoy Management, which over the past five years has built a client roster that includes Paula Patton, Neal McDonough, Bella Heathcote, Kristoffer Polaha, Reno Wilson, Michael Beach, Ben Koldyke and Eric Balfour. The reformed team will continue its relationship with Medavoy’s producing partner, Alan Nevins, of Renaissance Literary & Talent. They are currently producing E!’s upcoming miniseries about Gucci heiress Patricia Gucci.
More gets back into the management business after a dozen years as an agent, most recently as head of TV talent at Paradigm, where he worked with clients such as Sharon Stone, Neal McDonough, Chris Vance, Jill Hennessy, Roseanne Barr, Chevy Chase and Dwight Yoakam.
"Erwin made great contributions to Paradigm over the past five years," Paradigm chair and CEO Sam Gores said in a statement. "We look forward to working closely with him and Brian, with whom we share many clients already, to help build careers the right way."
Prior to Paradigm, More was co-head of talent at William Morris Agency for seven years.
"Brian and I enjoyed tremendous success together," More said in a statement. "I am looking forward to building upon that success utilizing our expanded knowledge and expertise. I had an extraordinary time working at both William Morris Agency and Paradigm, but I am looking forward to the future that Brian and I plan to build together."
"Erwin has great taste, tremendous experience and a gift with clients and network executives, and this is the perfect time for us to reunite," Medavoy said in a statement.
