EXCLUSIVE: Annet McCroskey of Artistic Endeavors has been elected President of the Talent Managers Association, the non-profit organization created in 1954 to promote the talent management biz. Three months ago Phil Brock of Studio Talent Group stepped down from the post after serving for two years. Then-Board of Directors VP McCroskey filled in back in March when Brock suddenly vacated the position. She’ll now become the organization’s first female president in 20 years. Longtime Harrison Ford manager Pat McQueeney was elected to the post in 1980 and Christina Applegate’s manager Tami Lynn served in 1993. “Many of us were moved by Laura Linney’s acceptance speech this week at the WIF Crystal + Lucy Awards about women in entertainment and how much more progress we have to make as an industry,” said McCroskey. “As an organization we strive to be equally inclusive of all of our members and mentor other managers to adhere to our strict code of ethics.” McCroskey’s priorities include the annual industry Heller Awards planned for September 19, 2013.

Is it just us, or is the most of the fun in seeing animated movies trying to figure out which famous actor is voicing your favorite characters? That's what we thought. So we're taking the guessing game out of the trip you're taking to theaters this weekend to see Monsters University and are putting 5 famous faces to 5 characters in the film. Of course you already know that John Goodman and Billy Crystal voice the main two monsters, Sully and Mike, but which TV stars, past and present, have roles in the film, too? We think some of these might be suprising..

Aubrey Plaza. The Parks and Recreation star plays the Greek Council President in the movie, which basically means that she leads the Scare Games, which is basically like the equivalent of the Olympics for undergraduate monsters. Her character could use some dental work but otherwise she's a looker.
John Krasinski. We recognized John's masculine, sexy voice immediately when his animated monster, Frank McKay, makes his debut early on the film. Frank is the best Scare Monster at Monster's Inc, which is similar to how John played Jim, the best (ish) employee at Dunder Mifflin on The Office. Art imitating...art, you guys.

Charlie Day. The guy from It's Always Sunny is obviously funny in this film, both funny in terms of jokes and funny in terms of looks. He plays Art, a misfit fraternity brother at Oozma Kappa with a questionable past and also hilarious one-liners. Like that one where, when discussing their hidden talents, Art says "I have an extra toe! Not with me of course." Hilarious.
Sean Hayes and Dave Foley. Jack from Will & Grace and that guy from, um, other funny things, star as siamese twins Terri and Terry Perry, the two-headed monster also part of Oozma Kappa fraternity. Who's cuter though?
Beth Behrs. Beth, aka Caroline Channing from 2 Broke Girls, has a small but important part in Monsters University as Carrie Williams, the head sorority sister of Python Nu Kappa sorority. She's basically like the monster version of Elle Woods.
