'Mad Mel' is dumped by his agency



mel-gibson-martin-riggs.jpgMel Gibson might be the most crazed, hate-filled actor working in Hollywood these days. But now he's also an actor with no agency. WME Entertainment as dropped Gibson as a client, according to multiple media reports.

"There's nothing to do for Mel Gibson at the moment," a WME source told the Hollywood Reporter. "No one will touch him with a 10-foot pole. He'll make his own movies, but you don't commission those anyway."

Gibson's name has been splattered all over the gossip pages for weeks now, with allegations swirling that he threatened the life of his girlfriend and again began using racial slurs against African-Americans and Latinos.

On top of that, Gibson's longtime agent, Ed Limato, died July 3.

A spokesman for Gibson told Yahoo Movies the star had always planned to do without an agent after Limato's death. "At this point he doesn't seem to be in need of an agent." In the next two years, Gibson is set to star in two films: The Beaver, a dark comedy co-starring Jodie Foster, and How I Spent My Summer Vacation, a movie that Gibson co-wrote.
