Hail, Caesar! breakout Alden Ehrenreich has signed with Relevant for publicity. The actor, 26, holds his own as a cowboy actor in the Coen brothers’ all-star ensemble comedy, which includes George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson and Josh Brolin; THR’s Todd McCarthy called him the film’s “most pleasant surprise … who invests his simple sagebrush star with genuine charm and pulls off some very smooth rope moves.” Ehrenreich recently wrapped on the Iraq War drama The Yellow Birds, starring opposite Tye Sheridan and Jennifer Aniston, and will next shoot an untitled drama written and directed by Warren Beatty. He continues to be repped by CAA and Brillstein.
Relevant also has signed Nymphomaniac star Charlotte Gainsbourg, who turned heads in the titular role in Lars von Trier’s racy two-parter. She’ll be seen in Independence Day: Resurgence and the Richard Gere-starring drama Oppenheimer Strategies this year, while she films the Universal cop thriller The Snowman, starring Michael Fassbender and Rebecca Ferguson, before moving on to French drama La Promesse.
Hey now, you’re an All-Star!
After a breakout season that has him making his NBA All-Star debut this weekend, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green has signed with WME in all (off-court) areas. (B.J. Armstrong at Wasserman Media Group continues to represent his playing contracts.) The fourth-year player, age 25, has been a instrumental part of the defending champions’ stunning follow-up season, which threatens to break the 1996 Chicago Bulls’ 72-10 all-time wins record (they’re currently 48-4). Green was an All-Defensive Team selection and runner-up for Defensive Player of the Year in 2014-15 and looks to again be a frontrunner for the league award this season. WME will focus on expanding the Michigan State graduate’s commercials and endorsements portfolio, which already includes Nike, Footlocker and Beats By Dre.
Speaking of NBA All-Stars …
Seven-time All-Star Grant Hill has signed with CAA in all areas. He previously was represented by Tandem Sports and Entertainment. Hill currently co-hosts NBA TV’s Inside Stuff and serves as an analyst on that network as well as TNT, in addition to his ongoing involvement in business, philanthropy and art. During his 19-year pro career, Hill was one of the league’s most popular players both on and off the court, with three NBA Sportsmanship Awards, cameo appearances on ‘90s sitcoms such as Living Single and Home Improvement and long-running sponsorships with companies including McDonald’s, Fila and, most famously, Sprite. The 1996 Olympic gold medalist also won back-to-back NCAA titles at Duke University and heaved the 75-foot inbounds pass that led to Christian Laettner’s “The Shot” during overtime of the 1992 regional final, considered by many to be the greatest college basketball play of all time.
