EXCLUSIVE: Troy Zien has become a talent manager at 3 Arts Entertainment. He most recently worked on the Hasbro account for former WME agent John Fogelman’s venture, and certainly has a familiarity with handling talent. Zien spent eight years as an agent, working his way from the ICM mailroom–where he trained under the late Ed Limato–and transitioned to WMA/WME in 2005. He was part of the agent team that repped Richard Gere, Robert Downey Jr., Thomas Haden Church, Kevin Connolly, Winona Ryder, Josh Holloway, Olivia Wilde, Ray Liotta and Thomas Jane.
“Troy’s relationships and unique business experience will position him well to be a valued talent manager,” said 3 Arts’ Michael Rotenberg. “He has a reputation of being extremely hands on with the artists he has worked for and we are excited to have him here.” Zien’s client list is yet to be determined.
