Heller Awards: Talent Managers Salute Jack Gilardi, Chuck Binder

10 November 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chuck Binder

Lifetime Achievement for Excellence as a Talent Manager

Binder began his showbiz career in William Morris Agency’s storied mailroom. His first big break came on the tennis courts: He met Jamie Lee Curtis, then a struggling actor, while working as a tennis instructor and helped introduce her to “Halloween” director John Carpenter and co-writer Debra Hill, paving the way for Curtis’ first film role.

From Binder & Associates’ 1978 beginnings, he has gone on to manage stars ranging from Sharon Stone and Brooke Shields to Benjamin Bratt, and to produce films and TV shows involving clients.

“Whatever I was touching, it was turning to gold,” Binder says. “But it was a different business in the ’80s. There weren’t as many managers or actors, it was just a little smaller. Now, everything is much bigger, which makes it harder. I like to be much more hands-on with a client. »

Enjoying this brief interlude of nothingness, one boy happily sighs: "This is a really good time." The dated specifics »
