I searched the forums and found discussions that its one of the scammy agencies. Can anyone elaborate on that? What exactly do they do thats bad?
Why the fuck would you want to associate yourself with a LOSER agency? If you have a LOSER agency on your resume, you're going to look like a LOSER.
But in case you're too lazy to do your research:
Once upon a time there was an agency called Zanuck, Passon, and Pace. They were so scammy that they were even written about in Backstage and various other industry publications.They would make you use their photographers and take their classes as a pre requisite to signing with them. They would also demand doing things that would get you laughed out of LA like costumed head shots.
This agency split up in two, Michael Zanuck Agency and Dedicated (now Jerry Pace Agency). BOTH agencies STILL continued such previously mentioned shenanigans.
No need to be rude Truth. I was only asking because they are on the first page of agencies when you look at IMDBpro. I had searched the forums but only found your posts about them being scammy...I just wanted to know more detail.
That's why you DON'T trust IMDB rankings for agencies.
Michael Zanuck is high on the list because so many people look him up out of curiosity because he spams everyone who joins LACasting. Jerry Pace also emails people via LA Casting as well.
Did you sign with them?
yeah, Jerry pace, Zanuck, And so forth are part of the same scummy crew that has been stinking up Hollywood since time immemorial. Avoid.
ha ha ha, lol. btw, anybody know if michael zanuck is related to the legendary daryl zanuck? that would be hilarious if he were some random guy who changed his last name to zanuck.
It's been suggested. Can't say if it's true.
His sister, who got in real trouble when she diverted her actors' funds at an agency that included Zanuck, had a different last name, but I don't know if that was by marriage.
The really hilarious thing these days is that virtually no one under fifty knows the name anyway.
Watch for a new agent named Michael Affleck.
His real name is Bigley. He changed it so people would think he's related to the famous 20TH Century Fox family
Holy smokes. How did you know that?
There used to be an article posted on here about it a long time ago. I think JimChevalier (who is no longer with us on this board) knew the story.
THE JERRY PACE AGENCY is a very legitimate agency.
I have been with them for several years and continually get sent out for commercials, film and television. Whatever mess he got involved with is now in his past. I am thrilled to have an Agent that submits me.
Oh I remember you. You're the one who said Melissa Cohen, who used to work with Michael Zanuck and Jerry Pace, was a good person despite the fact that she got kick backs from making you get costumed shots with HER photographer and taking classes with HER people.
So did Jerry Pace help you get all of those EXTRA roles and invisible post 2010 credits on your imdb?
I think you're long overdue for a MAJOR upgrade! I say MAJOR because anyone but him and Michael Zanuck is an upgrade.
Anyone can add anything on IMDB. Once some annonymous added unflattering pictures of me there.
OMG...I seriously have never seen an IMDb profile with so many (uncredited) "credits" in my life. I...I...I think I would just take off my picture, scrap the page and start over. Oh, my.
