'Nicky' thesp joins recently ankled Wahlberg, Sonnenfeld
Harvey Keitel has decided to change agencies, ankling United Talent Agency for Endeavor.
Keitel most recently appeared in the Universal actioner “U-571” but is best known for playing tough-as-nails and somewhat shady characters in pics like “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction.”
Keitel next appears as Satan opposite Adam Sandler in the New Line laffer “Little Nicky” and will follow that with “John Q,” an action suspenser with Denzel Washington, also at New Line.
Keitel’s inking is only the most recent in a spate of signings for the tenpercentery, which has recently been on a bit of a film binge with respect to both talent and lit representation.
Mark Wahlberg, who’ll next topline the remake of “Planet of the Apes,” recently joined the agency, and directors Barry Sonnenfeld and Glenn Gordon Caron (“Picture Perfect”) have signed on in the last few weeks.
The motion picture lit department has likewise been growing as a raft of scribes has signed including playwright and screenwriter Douglas Carter Beane (“As Bees in Honey Drown”); David Koepp, who penned “Jurassic Park: The Lost World” and the upcoming Columbia pic “Spider-Man”; Joel Wyman, who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts/Brad Pitt starrer “The Mexican”; and “Sleepy Hollow” co-writer and “Seven” scribe Andy Kevin Walker.
