Beverly Hills Talent Agency Evacuated
When everyday emergencies, like a gas leak, happen in other parts of town, it's pretty ho-hum as far as the news cycle goes.
But when a gas line ruptures in Beverly Hills, celebrity connections are almost always in the house! United Talent Agency, the representational home (at least last we checked) of Angelina Jolie, Jim Carrey and more, had to be evacuated today:
A tipster told us about the evacuation, and sure enough, Beverly Hills Police confirmed for the Weekly that a rupture occurred about 3 p.m. at Foothill Road and Civic Center Drive.

Evacuations were in effect as we speak, a police official said, as crews tried to repair the line.
It was breached as a result of construction in the area, he said.
So now's your chance, aspiring screenwriters. Get your work down to Foothill and Civic Center Drive ASAP. There are literally agents in the street.
(No, don't. We're just kidding. You could blow up).
