Innovative Artists talent agent Craig Shapiro has moved to ICM where he will join the talent department starting May 1. Shapiro had been at Innovative for 17 years, most recently serving as VP and managing partner, running the talent department. He is expected to bring to ICM many of his clients, including The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons, Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and Ugly Betty leading man Eric Mabius. Shapiro will be reporting to Ted Chervin, head of worldwide television; Mike Jelline, head of TV talent; and Toni Howard, head of motion picture talent and will be working with clients in both film and television. His hire comes on the heels of the departure of veteran ICM TV talent agent Tom Burke who was named head of casting for Warner Bros. TV earlier this month.
