Naomi Campbell has signed with publicity firm PMK*BNC. The fashion icon, who had a character arc throughout two seasons of Fox’s Empire, was the subject of Taschen’s two-volume, limited collector’s edition book The Art of Beauty, which was released in April. The $2,500 book was designed by British pop art legend Allen Jones, who created an unforgettable 3D model of Campbell’s bust for the cover.
She’s Got Talent
CAA has hired Shelsea Jacobs as an agent in the motion picture talent department. Jacobs had been at APA since 2013, and prior to that she was at Paradigm.
Hitting the Big Time
Actor Al Coronel has signed with Big Time PR. He currently recurs on TNT’s post-apocalyptic naval drama The Last Ship, which returns for its third season on June 12.
Magnet Management has hired two new reps, both of whom were independently practicing:
Talent manager Daniel Pancotto is bringing longtime clients Tom Cavanagh (The Flash) and Jonathan Sadowski (Young & Hungry), among others, with him. The Duke MBA grad previously trained under Steve Dontanville at William Morris.
Literary manager Jon Kanak is bringing a roster of international clients, including Richard Hobley (Slumber), Tom Daley (Tiger House), Keith Arem (The Phoenix Incident) and James Nunn (Tower Block). He began his career as a Silver Pictures reader before moving on to WME and then Alan Gasmer and Friends.
“We couldn’t be happier with the addition of these two guys,” the Magnet partnership said in a statement. “Dan adds an already successful talent component to our company, which is an avenue we have wanted to explore for some time now. And Jon is a young, aggressive presence in the international marketplace. Both bring different yet complementary skill sets to our ranks, and we are beyond excited to welcome them to the fold.”
