Surprised a couple of folks have said this. The character is essential to directly point out where Dalton is at the moment. In a sliding career. It needed to be the established Hollywood Agent to tell him this and how he possibly can get out of the rut he was in. The part is integral to launch the Dalton and Cliff story. It didn’t need to me more than it was. A small part yes but a so called big Hollywood Agent needed to be a big personality like Pacino.
