EXCLUSIVE: Sara Ramaker who was repping clients from Will.I.am and Stacy Ferguson to Zoe Kravitz and Snoop Dogg for acting has exited. Will.I.am’s acting and ancillary work except for DJ-ing already left for CAA in February. Sources claim this is the 8th senior talent agent to leave or be exited from Paradigm in the past two years and that the tenpercentery has decided not to replace them with senior reps. Here’s why: “We have a great core of young agents in the talent department handling young clients. We are grooming what we think is a tremendous next generation of young talent agents by internally promoting them,” an insider tells me. Then again, like all the Hollywood agencies, Paradigm is looking to trim overhead.
