Two high-profile Hollywood veterans who haven’t spoken much to each other in recent years, Michael Ovitz and Ron Meyer, will soon be appearing on stage together. The occasion is the Sept. 7 launch of the new James Andrew Miller book “Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood’s Creative Artists Agency.”
Deadline.com reports that the former partners and CAA co-founders will share stories about the formation of the talent agency. The book launch is set to take place at the Writers Guild Theater in Los Angeles, with proceeds benefiting the Motion Picture and Television Fund.
“Both Ovitz and Meyer participated in the book by Miller, who previously wrote the ESPN oral history and used that same technique to tell the CAA story,” Deadline notes. “Not surprisingly, both Ovitz and Meyer had differing recollections of what is now Hollywood history, in an early excerpt in Vanity Fair.”
