The underutilized actor-writer-director fired CAA on December 3rd after giving the tenpercentery notice back in August that he wasn’t satified. Though multiple agencies were heavily courting the Best Supporting Actor winner (Mystic River) and Best Director nominee (Dead Man Walking), my understanding is that United Talent’s Tracey Jacobs and her team had the inside track with Tim Robbins all along. UTA also recently signed Oscar winners Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and Julian Fellowes.
