WME has signed Oscar-winning veteran designer and artist H.R. Giger, Footloose remake star Kenny Wormald, and Landon Liboiron, who’ll star in the Steven Spielberg-produced Fox series Terra Nova.

Giger is the Swiss surrealist artist responsible for the groundbreaking visuals on the Ridley Scott-directed Alien, for which he won the Oscar for Best Achievement in Visual Effects. Giger, who has his own museum filled with his work in Switzerland, will be repped by WME for film, TV and vidgame design work along with Section 9 Entertainment. He has been very selective in the projects he’s done. Les Barany remains the agent for his art work.

Wormald was chosen by Paramount and director Craig Brewer for the Footloose lead after a long search.  A trained dancer who was previously seen in the pic Center Stage: Turn It Up, he stars opposite Julianne Hough in the remake. Wormald’s also repped by Caliber Media. Liboiron landed a lead in Terra Nova, a high concept adventure that follows a family that goes back in time in an effort to repopulate Earth. He also stars in the indie Ansiedad, and is managed by Magnolia Entertainment.
