How come someone at Kor didn't feel prompted to use their real name, if in fact they're going to identify themselves as such?
It's not like there are that many possibilities.
First of all get your facts straight! They didn't "start" anything they are nothing more then hired agents at the company. They are friends of the owners Elli & her lovely father Stanley (it's easy to verify...they are licensed so anyone can look it up it's public record. It lists who the bond is issued under and the owners on the LLC info). The actual owners are the sweetest people you will ever meet so shame on you for not knowing your facts and jeopardizing all of the hard work they've put in. Ok YES I am a bit biased...my daughter just signed with them and we have been nothing but pleased! After reading this thread I will admit I did get a little alarmed so I did some checking and verified WITH FACTS PEOPLE that no crime was ever committed and no charges were ever filed (so who are we to play judge and jury?). You gotta love the world we live in anyone can say whatever the heck they want and make potentially damaging accusations yet remain completely faceless and nameless. Yet then you have nerve to condemn them (if in fact they were even the ones who replied) for not stating their name? Where are your names? It's ridiculous! KOR is NOT shady they haven't even been around long enough to be for goodness sakes lol Diverse is closed and as far as I'm concerned so is this thread...Meryl, Russell, Morgan and Harrison go work on your Oscar speaches and stop wasting your energy on rumor, gossip and negativity Onwards and upwards y'all!
Elaina "Elli" Griego used to be a manager and had relations specifically with these 3 agents when Diverse was around and would tell people that she could get them with Diverse because she knew the Durzi's.
She's not exactly the most trustworthy person either. She works with shady directors/filmmakers like Damian Chapa. I remember she was casting a project for Damian Chapa and she promised a bunch of my friends that this was not extra work and that they would all get lines and paid. When they got there, it WAS extra work, DEFERRED pay, and a totally unorganized project they're too embarrassed to list on their resumes.
Did they all change their ways? Only time will tell. The Durzi's DO have a history of bad business ethics with two agencies prior. Your choice to trust them after is your choice I guess.
Wow that didn't take you long did it "Meryl" what do you do, live & breathe on here? Based on your some 2900+ posts I guess you do! Anyone can make false claims or allegations or share their opinions. You know what they say about opinions (the one about them being like a-holes and how everyone's got 1). You seem to have plenty of them about 2900 in fact. If talent were judged for every sloppy unorganized hyped up project they were ever involved in the entire industry would be shut down. Everyone's gotta start somewhere. So why the secrecy Meryl? For someone so outspoken and opinionated I would think you'd revel in the spotlight but apparently your more comfortable throwing punches and pot shots from behind the scenes? Careful-careful now...what goes around comes around and Karma isn't the only head "B" up in here! Lol Like I said earlier anyone can go around making false statements, throwing their Godly opinions around, finding faults or digging up pasts (just look at politics). It could even happen to you! hint hint Ni.. I mean "Meryl"
Here's something that's not false:
Read this article from one of the most prominent Hollywood reporters in town. And read the comments too.
Then, ask your awesome new agents who you love so much, why were they sued by their previous two employers.
Please report back to us, we'd all like to know.
Really Undercover Motha,
Blackmail? On an acting message board? You understand that when you attack/threaten someone here that everyone who reads it knows you're one of 3 or 4 people affiliated with 2 diff companies...both of which will be avoided by actors in the future. You would much better be served sending backstage a cease and desist or just responding in a non aggressive manner.
God, whether it's as the late-lamented "Annie T." or pretending to be an actual client, do these people not realize that one thing that MARKS them as shills is the crudity and the vulgarity of their tone? The gutter-level aggressivity?
Undercover Motha, I doubt there's a regular reader of this board who hasn't pegged you (and all your pseudonyms) for someone associated with this agency and judged your organization accordingly. Do you really want to keep dragging your company's image down with these infantile, ugly posts?
Oh crap! I'm scared...how did she know my name is Ni...?
If I may have the opportunity to rebut these false accusations against the Durzi Brothers and KOR Talent Agency and set the record straight.
Let me first just begin by saying that I'm a working actor and I was originally represented by Diverse Talent Group (DTG) until it dissolved about a year and a half ago. During that time , I had the opportunity to work with both the Durzi brothers , and Wendy Morrison. All of them treated me very well and fairly . They are the ones that kept me working during my time with DTG.
When DTG ran into their legal problems and dissolved, they left me without paying me for my final projects I had completed. Soon after, Nila left DTG and took the list of actors under DTG including me and without my consent. Later I found out that Nila was attempting to intercept my residuals and holding fees from some of the projects I had completed under DTG because Talent Partners still showed me being represented by DTG. I then had to contact Talent Partners to redirect my residuals and holding fees to be sent directly to me rather than DTG because they were no longer in business. These are the facts folks, so don’t be mislead with these accusations.
I’ve have since contracted with KOR Talent Agency, LLC (KTA) to represent me. KTA is owned by Elli Griego and not the Durzi Brothers as alleged; however, they are employed by KTA. Since working with KTA, I’ve been booked on projects and have gotten paid immediately thereafter. I have worked with Elli Griego for years . She is why I’m the Actor that I am today. I started in the entertainment business doing low budget films and have moved up since then. Elli Griego has always been there for me and she continues to be. It is my pleasure to once again have the opportunity to work with the Durzi Brothers and Wendy Morrison under KOR Talent Agency, LLC.
It’s just ashame that some people have nothing else better to do then to try and slander another business.
And yet... you post anonymously.
If they've done so much for your career, wouldn't you want people to know who you are and what you've done?
Me, I'm just sitting here wondering how many new ID's these people are going to keep creating.
Say hi to "Annie T" for all of us.
I believe my user name identifies me very well for those that know me. Thanks for your reply though. My reply to the accusations was more to even the score and allow people to weigh the accusations against the Durzi Bros', Wendy Morrison and KOR Talent Agency. All I'm saying is that they have been really good to me personally and for my career and have always come through for me. I just hope that everyone reading these blogs has enough sense to know or at least find out for themselves what really transpired with DTG and the Durzi Bros and not take these accusations as gospel. I know the facts and thats why I'm here and continue a good working relationship with the Durzi Bros., Wendy Morrison and KOR Talent Agency. Again, thank you for your reply.
How come you live in Riverside? Seems inconvenient.
just another actor..
Dun dun duuuuunnnnn....and the plot thickens...
Inconvenient is right and an understatement Bro. I travel back and forth hundreds of miles for auditions that KOR Talent Agency submits me for and I spend hours on the freeway on my time and at my expense. No one said that this industry would be easy. As you very well know, its probably the most difficult business to get into, but you have to do what you have to do but sooner or later, it does pay off. I'm thankful for Kor Talent, Durzi Bros., and Wendy Morrison for their tanacious efforts and hard work to give me the opportunity. As I said before, I started doing low budget movies and now I am where I am today because of Elli Greigo and the Durzi Bros. I have a nice portfolio and resume on IMDb with several movies, commercials, billboard and magazines and music videos and I owe it to them. I may not be a top notch Actor and making 6 figures, but I can tell you this...if it wasn't for Elli Griego (KOR Talent Agency) and the Durzi Bros., I wouldn't be where I am today. I'm very thankful to them for believing in me. Look, I'm not here to trash anyone and certainly not here to defend corrupt business, I'm here to set the record straight. KOR Talent Agency and its agents are people with good work ethics and I'm proud to be represented by KOR Talent Agency.
