Clifford Stevens, the longtime talent agent who’s been at Paradigm for the last 22 years, will shift from being a full-time agent into a consulting role, both with Paradigm and with other organizations and individuals.

Stevens’ list of clients — including James Earl Jones, currently appearing on Broadway in “The Gin Game,” and veteran set designer Santo Loquasto (the upcoming “Shuffle Along”) — will all remain with Paradigm. The agent, who’s been particularly influential on Broadway, has over the course of his career worked with clients who have included Glenn Close, Kenneth Branagh, Ralph Fiennes, Lauren Bacall, Michael Gambon and Len Cariou, among many others.

Jack Tantleff, the current head of Paradigm’s theatrical literary department, was once Stevens’ assistant, as was fellow Paradigm agent Jonathan Mills. “Clifford’s impact and influence on his clients and colleagues, as well as me personally, has been immeasurable,” said Paradigm chairman Sam Gores.

Along with Jones and Loquasto, Paradigm talent on Broadway this season will include Glenn Slater, the book writer of “School of Rock”; Sara Bareilles, the songwriter of “Waitress”; Stephen King, whose novel “Misery” inspired the current production starring Bruce Willis; and actors Bob Saget (“Hand to God”), Gabriel Byrne (“Long Day’s Journey into Night”) and Christopher Jackson (“Hamilton”).
