Gina Rodriguez Signs With CAA (Exclusive)
The 'Jane the Virgin' star left APA in November.
Gina Rodriguez has signed with CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
The Jane the Virgin star won a Golden Globe for best TV comedy actress in 2015 for her breakout performance in The CW series' first season, then received two more nominations in subsequent years. She'll next be seen opposite Natalie Portman and Tessa Thompson in Alex Garland's Annihilation, which Paramount will release Feb. 23. After that she'll star in Sony's adaptation of the 2011 Mexican thriller Miss Bala, directed by Catherine Hardwicke.
Through her CBS TV Studios-based I Can and I Will Productions (named after a quote from her instant-classic Globes acceptance speech), Rodriguez champions diverse stories onscreen. At CBS she is developing Have Mercy, about a Latina immigrant doctor who can only work as a nurse's assistant in Miami but sets up an unauthorized clinic to treat her community, and at The CW she has Illegal, about an all-American teenager who discovers he is undocumented.
Rodriguez dropped APA in November after multiple young men accused one of its agents, Tyler Grasham, of sexual harassment and assault, including underage abuse. She continues to be represented by attorney Karl Austen of Jackoway Tyerman.
