ICM signs Ice-T, actor Rodriguez


Ice-T and Freddy Rodriguez have signed with ICM.

Ice-T has signed with the agency in all areas. The rapper-actor-producer-author, now part of the cast of NBC's "Law & Order: SVU," began his career as a pioneering force in the West Coast hip-hop scene. He then moved into acting, landing his first film role in the 1991 feature "New Jack City." Ice-T, who also is a lecturer and wrote the book "The Ice Opinion," is managed by Jorge Hinojos.

Meanwhile, Rodriguez was nominated for a supporting actor Emmy for his role as Federico on HBO's "Six Feet Under." This past year, he appeared in the feature film "Bobby," which earned a SAG Award nomination for best ensemble cast. His recent credits include the films "Lady in the Water," "Poseidon" and "Harsh Times." Rodriguez will be honored next week as ShoWest best supporting actor. He next appears in "Grindhouse," a horror film directed by Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino that the Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films is releasing April 6. ()
