UTA locks up Warehouse 13 star
Fresh off the conclusion of his top-rated Syfy series, Warehouse 13 star Eddie McClintock has signed with UTA. The agency will scout new projects for the actor, who has appeared in Castle, Modern Family and Friends, as well as recurred on Bones and Desperate Housewives. He continues to be managed by Ric Beddingfield at The Beddingfield Company.
Vogue cover girl signs with 42West
Supermodel Joan Smalls is one of three models (along with Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss) on the prestigious cover of Vogue’s September issue, leaked last week, and she’ll capitalize on that publicity with the help of her new PR firm, 42West. The Puerto Rican beauty made $3.5 million last year, good enough for eighth place on Forbes’ highest-paid models list, and is Estee Lauder’s first Latina ambassador. Her other clients include Gucci, Missoni and Fendi; she is repped by IMG.
Orange is back for IMG
Seven weeks after Syracuse University terminated its multimedia rights deal with IMG (which had been slated to run through 2020-21), the Orange has announced a new multiyear license agreement with the agency. Neither party has disclosed the amended terms of the contract, but under the reworked deal, IMG (which was acquired by WME in May) will sell Syracuse’s corporate sponsorships, manage its radio broadcasts, produce programs and publications and market other athletics department assets, including digital entities, venue signage and in-game promotions.
ICM invites Boychoir boy to join its band
ICM Partners has signed Boychoir star Garrett Wareing. The 13-year-old actor beat more than 1,200 other boys in a casting search for the lead in the musical drama, which will make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. The relative newcomer stars as a talented but troubled student who clashes with the choir master (Dustin Hoffman) at his prestigious musical boarding school. Wareing continues to be repped by 23 Management.
The Prodigy changes its pitch up
British electronic rockers The Prodigy have signed with new U.S. label Three Six Zero Music, which recently launched in collaboration with Warner Bros. Records. Over its 24-year career, the trio has released five studio albums to go with two Grammy nominations. The Three Six Zero signing is under license from the group’s U.K. indie label, Cooking Vinyl, which distributed its 2009 album Invaders Must Die.
