Rep Sheet: Dillon joins CAA's force
EmptyMatt Dillon has signed with CAA for representation. Until recently, the actor had been repped by Endeavor. Dillon was nominated for an Academy Award as well as a Golden Globe last year for his turn as a racist cop in the Oscar-winning "Crash." The role netted him an Independent Spirit Award for best supporting male actor. Dillon also starred in "You, Me and Dupree" and "Factotum" and co-wrote, starred in and directed 2002's "City of Ghosts." He continues to be repped by managers Vic Ramos and Sandy Erickson.
ICM speaks up
ICM, seeking to expand its existing lecture service, is entering into a strategic alliance with American Program Bureau, one of the largest international speakers bureaus with a 40-year history in the field. As part of the agreement, APB will secure speaking engagements for ICM clients as well as work to develop other creative opportunities, while ICM in turn will get access to APB's staff of agents, client resources and position as one of the innovators of the lecture industry. The two also plan to develop content-based programs for artists. APB reps such figures as former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Dan Rather and Larry King. (Borys Kit)
