Super Agent Ed Limato dies at 73

Hollywood talent agent Ed Limato, a powerful industry player for more than three decades, has died. He was 73.

Limato died July 3 of lung disease at his Beverly Hills home. He had been hospitalized repeatedly at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in recent months for undisclosed medical reasons.

Most recently with WME, Limato has repped some of the highest-profile actors in the business, including Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Steve Martin and the frequently embattled Mel Gibson.

"Ed was my dear friend and agent for 40 years," Gere said. "He was the best of the best. There will never be anyone like him. The mold has been broken. He was probably the most respected agent of our time, who loved his clients dearly and would do anything for them. "
