Topher Grade, the That ’70s Show actor from In Good Company and Spider-Man 3, had been repped by WME. He’s presently starring in Lionsgate’s The Big Wedding with Amanda Seyfried and Katherine Heigl and recently wrapped The Giant Mechanical Man and The Double. He is managed by Aleen Keshishian and Scott Wexler of Brillstein Entertainment Partners. His attorney is Michael Gendler.
I’ve learned he’ll be repped by a team led by partners Billy Lazarus and Shani Rosenzweig. Ruffalo currently stars in the indie The Kids Are All Right. He recently made his directorial debut on Sympathy For Delicious which won the Sundance Special Jury Prize. He will continue to be repped by managers Aleen Keshishian, Scott Wexler and Margaret Riley at Brillstein Entertainment Partners.
There seems to be some confusion in the agent world exactly why ICM just hired back alumnus Scott Wexler as its newest talent tenpercenter. Wexler has been a manager at three different management companies — AMG, 3Arts, and Anonymous Content — but I’m told his biggest clients, the low-profile Josh Lucas and even lower-profile Justin Bartha, will stay at Endeavor. Uh, doesn’t ICM need more movie stars, not movie talent agents? ”He’s a good guy with experience, knows everybody there, and we need another body to help cover and service so we can get our clients jobs,” an ICM insider explains to me. “And jobs bring more clients.”
