Let's have a Keke
Scream Queens' Keke Palmer has signed with PMK*BNC for publicity. The Akeelah and the Bee star will reprise her role as Zayday, now a young physician in training, for season two of the Fox horror series, which returns on Sept. 20. Palmer, who became Broadway's first African-American Cinderella in 2014, was showcased in a memorable quick-change solo number on Fox's Grease: Live in January. The busy actress is shooting indie drama Pimp, in which she stars as the title character, while penning inspirational memoir I Don't Belong to You, due in October via Simon & Schuster, and recording original music (she dropped single "Enemiez" in March).
A.K.A. Mrs. Tom Hardy
Charlotte Riley has signed with ICM Partners. The English actress' most recent film credits are London Has Fallen, In the Heart of the Sea and Edge of Tomorrow. After breaking out in ITV's 2009 adaptation of Wuthering Heights opposite Tom Hardy, Riley has continued to make her name in international television, appearing in Peaky Blinders, World Without End, Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and Close to the Enemy. She's currently filming the ITV telepic Dark Heart AKA Wagstaffe.
Help Him Help You
WME has hired sports agent Jordan Bazant, whose clients have included Troy Aikman, Ryan Tannehill, Reggie Bush, Rob Stone, Marshall Faulk and Bobby Hurley.

The Vanderbilt alumnus also has worked at Integrated Sports International.
Because Second-Borns Deserve Attention, Too
Keidrich Sellati, who plays Matthew Rhys and Keri Russell's younger child on FX's The Americans, has signed with Jill Fritzo PR. Showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg have said they are "very much looking forward to exploring the character further when the Emmy-nominated drama returns for its fifth and penultimate season." Sellati also co-stars in indie drama Life Now, Life Then, which is eyeing a 2017 release.
