According to the New York Times, President Obama has nominated chairman of TriStar productions (a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment), Thomas E. Rothman, to sit as the 18th member of the National Council of the Arts.  If the Senate approves the proposal, Rothman will advise on the endowment’s policy and programs and make recommendations on grant applications.

“The movie credentials of Mr. Rothman, a New York native, are many: He previously ran 20th Century Fox, founded the specialty film company Fox Searchlight and sits on the board of the Sundance Institute. The executive was also one of Mr. Obama’s Hollywood bundlers of campaign support in 2008 and 2012. Members of the National Council on the Arts serve six-year terms.” (NYT)
