True to Their Roots

Randi Jayne and Jennifer Lee never thought they'd be asked what they're looking for in an agent. But last week in the offices of Creative Artists Agency in Los Angeles, the two viral video stars of "Mac in My Top" fame told four agents from one of Hollywood's biggest shops that they would only want an agent who understands they are loyal to the Internet.

"We aren't looking to be movie or TV stars," Ms. Jayne said.

The trip to CAA followed the duo's tour of Hollywood last month to meet industry insiders. In addition to considering agencies, the pair got some more face time with independent production shop Evolution Media last week to brainstorm ideas for Internet shows they'll create together, such as a weekend style-news update or a reality show chronicling their video shoots.

Ms. Jayne said they expect to finalize a deal later this month or in early April.
