Brian Grazer Was Here -- With a Photo

BOOKS: Brian Grazer

Brian Grazer (CAA, Bloom Hergott) has a deal with Simon & Schuster to write a book about his weekly meetings with new and interesting people from the worlds of government, science and other realms.

The superproducer takes to leaving self-portraits at homes and venues around town.

This story first appeared in the Dec. 7 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine.

Have you seen Brian Grazer in the restroom lately?

Those who know the Oscar- and Emmy-winning superproducer are aware of his slyly sportive penchant for leaving framed pictures of himself at the homes of colleagues and friends, quietly situated among other family photographs.

More recently, he has begun dropping off his "Kilroy was here" signature at venues around town, including near the sink in the lobby lavatory at Chateau Marmont.

So what's the deal? Is it an in-joke? Conceptual art? Guerrilla self-advertising? Marking his territory?

Someone close to Grazer advises not to read too much into it -- it's just "a fun thing."
