Coming Soon to a Theater Near You: Condoleezza Rice

Condoleezza RiceFormer Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has signed with the William Morris Agency, which describes itself as a "diversified talent and literary agency," with "clients in all segments of the entertainment industry." While "most other members of the Bush administration, save Karl Rove, might have trouble finding such a wide-ranging deal, Rice found a strong market among talent agencies," according to Hollywood Reporter. The agency will represent Rice on deals involving "books, lecture appearances, philanthropic initiatives, as well as media, sports and communications." The agency's Wayne Kabak praised Rice's "well-rounded resume in policy, politics and music, her interest in sports and other areas." He explained, "We're here to help her create and enhance an agenda that is very important to her in her post-government career." Rice is reportedly not interested in pundit appearances, but in classical music, "efforts to get disadvantaged children college educations and initiatives to help U.S. children become global citizens."
