Lasseter Wants To Return To Hollywood?

Lasseter Wants To Return To Hollywood

Nearly a year ago former Pixar chief John Lasseter announced that he would be taking a leave of absence from Pixar Animation, news followed by accusations by several Pixar employees of his inappropriate behaviour and ultimately it led to him not returning to work at Disney beyond finishing up his role there.

With him now out at the Mouse House, he’s reportedly looking for a new job elsewhere in Hollywood according to a new report at The Washington Post and had a two-hour meeting with talent agency WME Entertainment where he “gave his side of the accusations and outlined his hopes for his next act”.

The specifics of that meeting were not disclosed, but Lasseter has reportedly already been taking meetings around Hollywood and possibly has an eye towards getting back into animation. Lasseter has also apparently taken up an interest in podcasting.
