Hallstrom back to UTA; Baldwin exits CAA


After spending a little more than a year at CAA, helmer Lasse Hallstrom has returned to UTA for representation. The Oscar-nominated director, whose latest effort, "The Hoax," is in theaters, is developing the romantic comedy "Sammy" for Columbia Pictures. His credits also include "The Cider House Rules," "The Shipping News" and "Chocolat." His producing partner Leslie Holleran also will be handled by UTA. Hallstrom is also repped by attorney David Nochimson.

"30 Rock" star Alec Baldwin also left CAA on Tuesday, the agency confirmed. The Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actor, whose recent film credits include "The Departed" and "Running With Scissors," recently won a Golden Globe for his role on the NBC comedy "30 Rock." He continues to be managed by N2N Entertainment.
