'The Killing' Star Joel Kinnaman Exits CAA (Exclusive)
Joel Kinnaman, the Swedish actor best known for AMC’s The Killing, has left CAA, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
The 34-year-old actor joined the agency in May 2013 after he and several other clients of manager Shelley Browning split with UTA. Browning clients Rosamund Pike and Noomi Rapace remain at CAA.
Kinnaman gained a following in Hollywood for his work in The Killing, which recently streamed its fourth and final season on Netflix. But the movie that was to have been his breakthrough into the mainstream, Robocop, fizzled in the U.S. when it was released earlier this year. (That deal was made by Browning and UTA before he signed with CAA.)
Kinnaman has two movies in the can: Run All Night, in which he stars with Liam Neeson (the movie will be released April 17, 2015 by Warner Bros.), and the Soviet-era set crime thriller Child 44 opposite Tom Hardy and Rapace. That film, which will coincidentally hit U.S. theaters the same day next April, was directed by Daniel Espinosa, the Swedish filmmaker who helmed Kinnaman in his international breakthrough movie, Snabba Cash.
