It appears to be the season for agency switching, and Paradigm is getting in on the action. The agency signed actress Taraji P. Henson and screenwriter/producer Bobby Moresco. Henson was Oscar nominated for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, she will soon open in the Steve Carell-Tina Fey comedy Date Night and was just signed by director Tom Hanks to co-star with him and Julia Roberts in Larry Crowne at Universal. Moresco, who shared an Oscar with Paul Haggis for writing Crash, and who is currently writing Hubris for Universal and director Todd Field, Lucky Luciano for producer Joe Isgro and Castro’s Daughter, a film he hopes to direct. Moresco was also exec producer of the Starz series Crash and is developing a half hour for the cable network with Colin Quinn. Both Henson and Moresco were at UTA, and followed David Guillod, who exited UTA and moved to Paradigm last fall.
