EXCLUSIVE: Katie Holmes has signed with ICM Partners. She leaves CAA.

The move occurs just after the Broadway closing of the Theresa Rebeck play Dead Accounts, which Holmes starring in. She next appears in the untitled Christian Camargo-directed film with William Hurt, Jean Reno, Ben Wishaw, Mary Rylance and Allison Janney, and she also starred in Broadway in the revival of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.

I can remember when Holmes, thanks to her success as the Dawson’s Creek cutie, and she was building nice movie momentum in films like Ang Lee’s The Ice Storm, Curtis Hanson’s Wonder Boys and Sam Raimi’s The Gift. When she married the planet’s biggest movie star, Tom Cruise (a CAA fixture), it understandably overshadowed everything else. Now that she’s on her own, there is an opportunity for her to recapture that early mojo, either on TV or on the movie screen, and it will be the job of  ICM Partners to facilitate that. Holmes is still managed by John Carrabino, and lawyered by Robert Offer.
