Staffers at the WME office in NYC noticed recently that the portrait of William Morris is suddenly missing. The oil painting of the founder of the 112-year-old agency that Endeavor took over last year had hung by the main conference room for a long time. But it suddenly disappeared the same week that Ari Emanuel and Patrick Whitesell and Rick Rosen were all in NYC. ”Perhaps it’s being repaired. Or relocated. Who knows? They certainly tell us nothing,” one employee emailed me. I think the old guy got fired instead of reprimanded.
What do you think happened to him?
