Ex-William Morris agent shifts to rival

Peter Levine has joined Creative Artists Agency as an agent in the firm’s motion picture talent department.

Levine’s move to CAA had been expected (Daily Variety, Oct. 14), but not confirmed until Thursday. Levine recently left the William Morris Agency, where he worked for the past six years, handling such talent as Brendan Fraser, Matthew Perry, Maura Tierney, Jordana Brewster, Carla Gugino and Peter Facinelli.

“We are thrilled to have Peter join CAA,” said CAA partner Kevin Huvane. “He is an extremely talented agent, and he brings with him a wealth of relationships and experience. He will be a great addition to our company.”

Before joining WMA, Levine worked as an agent at J. Michael Bloom & Associates in New York.
