Mike Jelline Lands at UTA

He was most recently the head of TV talent at ICM before exiting earlier this week.

Former ICM agent Mike Jelline will be joining UTA as an agent in the talent department, it was announced Friday.

“Mike is a great fit for us. He is passionate about the business, a great team player and someone who can be a big part of our future,” said UTA board member Jay Sures. “We feel lucky to have him join us."

Jelline was most recently head of TV talent at ICM since 2007 before departing earlier this week. He had been with ICM since 1997. 

A source said that Jelline no longer wanted to handle the administrative responsibility that comes with heading the department.

Jelline’s client roster at ICM included Aaron Paul, Vanessa Williams, Morena Baccarin, Jason O’Mara and Jeremy Sisto. No announcement has been made about which clients will follow suit to UTA.
