Jeffrey Katzenberg

Rumored mediator: Jeffrey Katzenberg Super mediation powers: He’s one of the wealthiest guys in Hollywood thanks to the success of almost every DreamWorks animation film ever made, and one of the most powerful too for the same reason. He’s a movie mogul who is also a household name. Actual involvement: He reportedly tried to broker a back-door compromise that would bring the WGA and the AMPTP back to the negotiating table in late December. It didn’t work. These days he’s relegated to giving helpless shrugs (as reported by a Defamer reader) while driving past the picket lines. Potential drawback: Although he styles himself as the artist-friendly mogul, a studio head isn’t exactly Switzerland in this dispute.
