APA loves the aughts
Two stars from two of the 2000s’ biggest television shows, CSI’s George Eads and The O.C.’s Mischa Barton, have signed with APA. Eads has played Nick Stokes on the long-running CBS procedural since its pilot episode 15 years ago; he signs with APA as he prepares to depart the series at the end of this season. Meanwhile, the agency also will seek new opportunities for Barton – the onetime Marissa Cooper has recently starred opposite Martin Sheen in the docudrama Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain and shot the paranormal thriller Ghost Station and AMBI Pictures’ crime thriller Hope Lost, opposite Michael Madsen.
Indie musician-turned-actress Joanna Newsom has signed with UTA. The artist’s signing comes on the heels of her film debut as the narrator of Inherent Vice; up until then her voice was more commonly heard on music blogs as well as her three studio albums and three EPs. The harpist-singer-songwriter also has appeared on IFC’s Portlandia as, fittingly, a harpist.
He’s getting on well
How to Get Away with Murder’s Alfred Enoch has signed with ICM Partners. The British actor was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for his supporting turn as law student Wes in the ABC freshman drama. Last month the Harry Potter alum signed with Wolf | Kasteler Public Relations.
No matter what happens, at least she’ll have a good publicist
The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan has signed with 42West. Last Sunday she returned as survivor Maggie on the AMC zombie drama’s midseason premiere. Cohan is set to stay in-genre with a star turn on the big screen in Lakeshore and Vertigo’s upcoming living-doll horror thriller The Boy. Her previous television appearances include recurring arcs on The Vampire Diaries, Chuck and Supernatural.
She sets the mood
Selma music supervisor Morgan Rhodes has signed with Andrew Zack of the music-focused Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency. The former KCRW DJ – who also once worked as a photo editor/archivist at Sony Pictures Home Entertainment – curated the vintage and modern soul that constitute the soundtrack for the civil rights drama. She first collaborated with director Ava DuVernay on her previous feature, Middle of Nowhere.
