Press joins Paradigm

Client cadre unclear

Former ICM agent Ben Press has joined the Paradigm Agency as an agent in the motion picture talent department. Press left ICM, where he had spent seven years, in late 1998 and since then has worked as a manager for some of his clients.

Among the clients Press has repped during his career are William Baldwin, James Woods, Ray Liotta, Don Cheadle, Elle Macpherson, Billy McNamara and Henry Thomas. While Heather Donahue, who co-starred in “The Blair Witch Project,” has joined Press at Paradigm, it’s unclear which of Press’s other former clients will be joining him.

“We are very pleased to have Ben joining us at Paradigm,” said Paradigm president Sam Gores. “We look forward to his valued contribution to this growing company.”

Before joining the agency ranks, Press worked for late Republican National Committee chairman Lee Atwater in Washington, D.C.
