Pacino’s exit came right after the agency restructured and longtime head Jeff Berg left to start the agency Resolution. Berg had been part of the team that repped Pacino, along with John Burnham and Adam Schweitzer. They signed the iconic actor after his agent Rick Nicita left to join Morgan Creek, prompting Pacino to end a 22-year run at CAA. ICM Partners has settled down under its new structure and Burnham and Schweitzer have gotten Pacino back. Nicita is his manager. Pacino is involved in many of the same projects, including a date to play the late Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno in the Edward R. Pressman-produced Brian DePalma-directed Happy Valley, a film about how Paterno’s rep as college’s winningest coach was tarnished by a scandal in which his former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was accused of and eventually convicted of child molestation perpetrated under the noses of athletic department heads that included Paterno. Pacino also stars as a decadent rocker in the Dan Fogelman-directed Imagine, and plays the title character in the David Gordon Green-directed Manglehorn.
