Bobby Cannavale Signs With WME (Exclusive)
The ‘Vinyl’ star was previously with ICM Partners.
Bobby Cannavale has exited ICM Partners for WME, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
He currently stars as a 1970s record label president in freshman drama Vinyl, which HBO renewed after one episode. THR’s Tim Goodman raved about his performance, writing that he “takes his work to an entirely new stratum here — Vinyl pulsates in every scene he’s in.”
Cannavale previously worked with Vinyl co-creators Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, for which he won the most recent of his two Emmys, playing the gangster Gyp Rosetti. (His first Emmy came in 2005 for portraying Will's (Eric McCormack) eventual partner on NBC’s Will & Grace, and he also has been nominated twice for his recurring role on Showtime’s Nurse Jackie.)
The prolific actor’s recent film credits include Daddy’s Home, Ant-Man, Spy and Danny Collins — and that was just in 2015. His other prominent credits include Chef, Blue Jasmine and a series-regular role on NBC’s Third Watch.
Cannavale continues to be repped by manager Peg Donegan at Framework and attorney Ira Schreck at Schreck Rose.
