Jobs, Lasseter: Most Influential
Steve Jobs, the chairman of both Apple Computer and Pixar Animation, has, along with John Lasseter (whom Jobs calls his "creative sidekick"), been placed at the top of the list of Premiere magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in Hollywood. Last year's No. 1, Steven Spielberg, moves down to No. 2. Jobs is Disney dissidents Roy Disney and Stanley Gold's favorite candidate to replace Michael Eisner as chairman of Disney. Meanwhile, the New York Post's "Page Six" column is reporting today (Wednesday) that a "consortium of mysterious European investors" is planning a takeover of Disney and wants Mel Gibson to head the company if it succeeds.
