Punch, who’d been repped by ICM, makes the move at a time when she’s about to open in the Jay Roach-directed Dinner for Schmucks, followed by Woody Allen’s You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, the Nicole Kassell-directed Earthbound and the Jake Kasdan-directed Bad Teacher, which also stars Cameron Diaz, Jason Segal and Justin Timberlake. Punch continues to be managed by The Schiff Company and UK-based United Agents.

Grauman's Chinese TheatreCAA has signed Amber Heard, who is coming off Zombieland and will next be seen opposite Johnny Depp in the Bruce Robinson-directed The Rum Diary and opposite Nicolas Cage in the Patrick Lussier-directed Drive Angry. Heard had been repped by WME, and remains lawyer-ed up with Karl Austen.

A decade after their short runs, Judd Apatow’s cult series Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared are getting another shot on IFC. The cable channel has acquired all 18 produced episodes of the NBC dramedy, created by Paul Feig and produced by Apatow, and all 17 segments of the Fox comedy, created and produced by Apatow, from Paramount Pictures, which holds the rights to the two DreamWorks TV series. Freaks and Geeks premieres this Friday, while Undeclared will debut in the fall featuring a previously unaired episode. The two series helped break a slew of young talent, including Jay Baruchel, Jenna Fischer, James Franco, Seth Rogen and Jason Segel.
