Deep Throat family gets Hollywood agent

  |   June 8, 2005 at 3:18 PM
LOS ANGELES, June 8 (UPI) -- The family of the man identified as Watergate's "Deep Throat" has signed with one of Hollywood's top talent representatives, Creative Artists Agency.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the family of W. Mark Felt -- who confirmed last week that he was the source of crucial insider leaks for Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein -- has signed with CAA, and is looking for movie or TV deals.

CAA confirmed that it will represent Felt's family. The paper said the deal also includes John O'Connor, the attorney who wrote the Vanity Fair article revealing Felt as the mysterious source of information that helped pave the way for former U.S. President Richard Nixon's resignation in 1974.

Felt was the deputy director of the FBI during the Watergate investigation.
