Ahem: More Magic Mike coming soon
UTA has signed CSI: Miami alum Adam Rodriguez, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. After starring as Det. Eric Delko for all 10 seasons of the CBS procedural, the New York City native can currently be seen in the network's summer legal drama Reckless. His feature credits include Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All by Myself, Magic Mike and the About Last Night remake earlier this year. In September, Rodriguez will join fellow UTA client Channing Tatum in shooting the sequel to Magic Mike, where he'll reprise his role as the exotic dancer Tito. He continues to be repped by A Management Company.
Marching to a new beat
Entertainment marketing and PR agency Different Drummer has tapped brand exec Andy Peterson to serve as its president. Peterson spent the past eight years as senior vp and creative director at Propeller, and he will continue to work out of Nashville, where Different Drummer has opened a new office to go along with its operations in Los Angeles. The Nashville office also will be home to the firm's new digital practice, led by new hires Chris Youngblood and Janeal Bernhart. Youngblood, formerly communications director for the nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms, will lead social and digital media strategies, and Bernhart, who hails from Ginsberg Libby, will manage digital publicity.
