Matt Vioral

Agent
Gersh

Vioral scored a gig in Gersh's mailroom a few months after graduating from UCLA in 2006 and has remained at the agency ever since. By 25, he was promoted to agent. Since then, the Upland, California, native has amassed a roster of young talent that includes recent breakouts like Atlanta and Deadpool 2 star Zazie Beetz, who's finishing up her fifth movie this year (Joaquin Phoenix's Joker film), as well as Kissing Booth heartthrob Jacob Elordi, who landed a plum part as the male lead opposite Zendaya in HBO's teen drama Euphoria. The avid traveler also reps New Amsterdam's Ryan Eggold, Stranger Things' Joe Keery and Split's Haley Lu Richardson, who's set to star in CBS Films and Lionsgate's Fault in Our Stars-esque drama Five Feet Apart opposite Cole Sprouse.
