Jason Patric finds new agency
Jason Patric has signed with Gersh. The actor stars opposite Bruce Willis in Lionsgate’s thriller The Prince, in which he plays a former assassin trying to rescue his kidnapped daughter. Meanwhile, he remains embroiled in a real-life paternal-rights lawsuit with his ex-girlfriend. Patric broke out in the 1987 cult classic The Lost Boys, and his other credits include Sleepers, The Alamo, In the Valley of Elah and My Sister’s Keeper. He continues to be repped by LINK and Bloom Hergott.
IMG recruits Fox Sports exec
IMG has hired Fox Sports exec Karen Brodkin as the agency’s president of business affairs. At Fox Sports Media Group, the former entertainment attorney served as executive vice president of business and legal affairs, where she oversaw the team that negotiated media rights deals with major professional and college sports organizations as well as production, programming and talent contracts. Brodkin also serves as president of the Los Angeles Sports Council’s board of directors.
Making music for a bigger screen
Composer Bear McCreary has signed with Kraft-Engel Management. McCreary broke out in his field at age 24 with the score to Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica, and he has since composed The Walking Dead, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD and Da Vinci’s Demons, for which he won an Emmy last year. The boutique agency, which reps Oscar nominees including Danny Elfman and Alexandre Desplat, will help the rising star transition to the big screen. “McCreary’s cinematic style completely holds its own against great movie music,” Kraft-Engel partner Richard Kraft said in a statement. “Bear McCreary is well poised to make the leap to major motion pictures, and we are excited to help take him there.”
