Slater adds reps

Christian Slater, who turned heads in 1988’s “Heathers” and currently is on the big screen in Paramount’s “Jimmy Hollywood,” has signed with Brillstein-Grey. Brad Grey and Brian Swardstrom will represent the actor at the management/production company.

Slater will continue his affiliation with Creative Artists Agency, where Rick Kurtzman and Jane Sindell have been overseeing his career.

Brillstein-Grey has for years been one of the premier comedy management firms , with clients including Dana Carvey, Garry Shandling and Dennis Miller. They have skillfully guided many a “Saturday Night Live” veteran from the small to the big screen.

Sources at Brillstein-Grey confirmed the signing late Thursday and were quick to dispel speculation that it signals any broad changes in Slater’s career direction, such as a move into TV or an interest in tackling broader comedy roles.

While many Brillstein-Grey clients have signed with CAA as their careers have picked up steam, Slater is one of the few to start off with the agency and then sign with the management company.
