UTA Agent Jon Huddle Departs to Start Management Firm
Fourth Wall Management's launch clients include Jonathan Goldstein, John Francis Daley, Evan Spiliotopoulos and Rob Lieber.
UTA motion picture literary agent Jon Huddle is leaving to start his own management company, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Joining him at Fourth Wall Management is UTA trainee Halle Lucas, as well as a large roster of Huddle's clients, including writers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast), Rob Lieber (Peter Rabbit), David Goodman (Family Guy), Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair (Playing It Cool), Tyger Williams (The Perfect Guy), Abdul Williams (New Edition: The Movie), Alex Litvak (Predators), Alex Rubens (Keanu), Paul Dinello (The Late Show With Stephen Colbert), Kristen Buckley (Funk) and Fred Wolf (Grown Ups); Greenleaf executive producer Clement Virgo; and What If director Michael Dowse.
"The decision to do this now was not an easy one," Huddle said Tuesday in a statement. "Whatever your career is, the constant question you must ask yourself is whether it's time to pivot or persevere. I've really only known one way of representing clients and that's to be in the trenches alongside them. By starting Fourth Wall, I now get to pivot, doing more of what comes naturally."
Huddle began his career in the William Morris mailroom before moving to ICM and then UTA, where has been for the past 10 years.
"Jon has been a tireless advocate for clients, a supportive colleague and a terrific friend during his 10 years at UTA," said UTA managing director David Kramer. "Those same qualities will no doubt make his new firm a big success, and we're excited to support him in his new venture."
