Jon Hamm Departs Longtime Talent Agency (Exclusive)
The "Mad Men" star had been represented by ICM Partners' Carol Bodie, who was let go by the agency last week.
Mad Men star Jon Hamm has left his longtime talent agency, ICM Partners. He had been represented by the company for more than a decade.
Hamm was represented by ICM agent Carol Bodie, who was let go by the company along with former CEO Jeff Berg last week. Sources say Berg was pushed out before he could depart to form a new talent agency.
Another of Bodie's clients, Lincoln and Jack Reacher actor David Oyelowo, also has left ICM.
It's not clear where Hamm, 41, would land, but he instantly becomes a massive target for rival agencies. The actor has been nominated for an Emmy Award five times for his portrayal of Don Draper on AMC's Mad Men and in 2008 he won a Golden Globe for the role. His film credits include Bridesmaids, Friends With Kids and The Town.
It's not known whether other clients of Bodie or Berg will depart ICM. Berg has represented Al Pacino and Roman Polanski. Sources have said that the veteran agent is planning to start a new talent agency and is looking for office space in Century City.
