Here’s one the UTA job list conveniently left out this week:

Waxy haired super producer Brian Grazer is hiring – and no, it’s not an executive assistant position. It’s a cultural attaché position. What – you haven’t heard of that? It’s one of those gigs that pretty much most agency partners and high profile studio heads are privy to. Hell, even ol’ Lew Wasserman had a cultural attaché back in the day! In fact, Wasserman started the cultural attaché mentorship program, where aspiring attachés could intern in the famed MCA building, and learn to cover scripts, procure knowledge, answer phones and expound endless tidbits of art, medicine and politics to high power executives at the drop of a hat.
While the Beautiful Mind producer’s staff of twenty continues to meet with candidates, Grazer’s Imagine Entertainment partner Ron Howard continues his search to replace his long-standing, traveling personal novel condenser and urban planning consultant. [Variety]
