Gazzale Takes Reigns At AFI

gazzale_bob.jpgThe American Film Institute picked 15-year AFI executive Bob Gazzale for the post of president and CEO, replacing Jean Picker Firstenberg, who led the AFI since 1980.

Coverage in the Hollywood Reporter is pretty bland. The better story is in the LAT, which notes that Sean Connery convinced the board to give the post to Gazzale.

Take note, young scribes, if you really want to land that gig, take Sean Connery to your next job interview.
