The Passions of Camil
Jane the Virgin’s Jaime Camil has signed with Zero Gravity Management. In a case of life imitating art, the Mexican actor was a real telenovela star when he was cast as telenovela star Rogelio de la Vega (and Jane’s father) in the Peabody-winning CW dramedy, now in its fourth season. Camil also is part of the all-Latino voice cast of Pixar’s Oscar-nominated Coco. He spent his past two summer hiatuses on stage, playing Sam Carmichael in Mamma Mia! at the Hollywood Bowl last year and Billy Flynn in Chicago on Broadway in 2016. Camil continues to be represented by Jackoway Tyerman.
Jared Thompson has joined Abrams as an agent in the alternative and digital media department, where he will report to senior vp and department head Alec Shankman. Thompson spent the past seven years at Rebel Entertainment, where he represented Emmy-winning producers from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and 9/11, as well as showrunners and producers from Intervention and Fixer Upper. He also has packaged and closed deals with networks including Discovery, Lifetime and WE TV.
Abrams also has signed digital beauty influencer Deepica Mutyala, who has 156,000 followers on Instagram and 148,000 subscribers (and more than 18.8 million views) on YouTube. Mutyala recently launched media platform Tinted, which will provide editorial and video content, as well as community forums, dedicated to beauty for undeserved multicultural consumers. Mutyala recently appeared at the Create & Cultivate conference in Los Angeles, and she has served as an on-air beauty expert on NBC’s Today. Her brand relationships include Olly, Neutrogena, NARS and MAC. Said Mutyala in a statement, “Representation in the media is my mission, and I am proud to be joining with Abrams Artists Agency to help support the launch of Tinted and to expand my brand with an inclusive platform.”
