In the LA Times, Loretta Munoz profiles new Universal studio leaders Marc Shmuger and (former Focus Features co-president) David Linde. The two immediately hit it off, according to the article. At the "engagement dinner" prior to announcing their new jobs, "They got along so well that Shmuger pulled out a disposable camera. 'We were taking pictures like tourists on their first trip to New York', he said. 'I wanted to preserve the historic moment'. They moved on to a bar after dinner. 'We wanted to keep talking so we headed out for a few beers', Linde said." Now the two live near each other in Brentwood and even wore identical outfits to the interview with the LA Times.
