Talent Agents and Scouts
An agent is a salesperson who sells artistic or athletic talent. Talent agents act as representatives for actors, directors, writers, models, athletes, and other people who work in the arts, advertising, sports, and fashion. Agents promote their clients' talent and manage their legal contractual business. Talent scouts work for production companies, sports teams, or music producers and recruit talented people to perform in movies, television shows, or theatrical productions.
