From humble office boy to opening his own Beverly Hills agency, Phil Gersh had ambition. He worked his way up to agenting acclaimed directors and actors such as Humphrey Bogart, Richard Burton, David Niven, Karl Malden, June Allyson and William Holden. The Gersh Agency, often referred to as Gersh or TGA, upholds a "quality over quantity" philosophy, maintaining an intimate boutique environment focusing on galvanizing emerging actors and taking care of their talent for long-term career goals. TGA thrust Tobey Maguire into the limelight with the Spider-Man franchise and negotiated Canadian unknown Hayden Christensen into the role of a young Darth Vader in the second Star Wars trilogy. Unlike most full service talent agencies, TGA is known for maintaining a significantly low roster of clients, thus insuring its senior agents aren't spread too thin. In addition to noteworthy Literary and Below-the-Line departments, the agency also has a solid comedy division that includes Dave Chappelle, Patton Oswalt and John Oliver of The Daily Show. — Written by Margo Fortuny; Updated by James Famera
