Don’t call her Katie
The Arrangement star Christine Evangelista has signed with UTA. The actress plays an up-and-coming starlet who enters a manufactured romance with a movie star in the thrall of a mysterious empowerment cult in the drama, which E! has renewed for a second season. Her previous credits include The Walking Dead (in which she played Sherry, one of Negan’s “wives”) and Chicago Fire on television, and the Miles Teller boxing biopic Bleed for This. She continues to be represented by MJ Management and Stone Genow.
UTA also has signed rapper Jeezy. The multiplatinum artist has sold more than five million records around the world, received four Grammy nominations and is credited with helping to popularize trap music. Last October his latest album, Trap or Die 3, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, the third of his studio albums to do so. All seven of his major-label releases, beginning with 2005’s Let’s Get It: Thug Motivation 101, have charted in the top 10. Jeezy releases his albums jointly through Def Jam and his label Corporate Thugz Entertainment, which he launched in 2001. His other business ventures include restaurants and real estate in his native Atlanta as well as serving as CEO of his own marketing firm, Agency 99, and multicultural advisor to tequila brand Avion. Jeezy, also known as Young Jeezy, Lil’ J and Da Snowman, continues to be managed by Solomon Fornie.
That’s a misnomer
Second Wives Club star Shawna Craig, the fifth wife of Lorenzo Lamas, has signed with management company Chrome Entertainment. In addition to appearing on the E! reality show, she pursues acting, modeling and hosting.
