Tyrese Gibson signs with UTA

Deal follows signing of agents Theresa Peters, Louise Ward

Tyrese Gibson is the latest talent to sign with UTA.

The signing continues the spree the agency has been on since the summer, when it netted agents Theresa Peters and Louise Ward, who brought with them such actors as Kirsten Dunst, James McAvoy, Mandy Moore, Channing Tatum, Rachel Bilson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

In recent weeks, the agency has continued buttressing its talent and lit roster, opening its doors to Tim Robbins, Oscar-winning director Florian Henckel von Donners¬marck, Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes and director Phil Joanou, on top of recent gets Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez.

Gibson recently appeared in "Death Race" with Jason Statham and "Transformers." The actor-producer is filming "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," reprising his role as Master Sgt. Epps, and also will star opposite Dennis Quaid and Paul Bettany in the Screen Gems thriller "Legion."

Via his HQ Pictures banner, Gibson is developing the action film "Desert Eagle" and the thriller "Extortion."

Gibson, who was at WMA, continues to be repped by manager Jerome Martin.
