EXCLUSIVE: The fallout from the exit of Dan Aloni from CAA to WME Entertainment continues. In a shocker, Jim Carrey has left CAA so that he could rejoin Aloni at WME. Carrey was built into a superstar at UTA before leaving to join CAA when Aloni left that agency and became CAA agents.
Said Carrey: “My work with Dan Aloni reaches back to Ace Ventura and through films like The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I have decided to continue that relationship by joining him at WME. I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone at CAA who worked very hard on my behalf.” Carrey continues to be managed by Jimmy Miller and Eric Gold.
Since Aloni left CAA, he has brought over all his big clients including Chris Nolan, David Dobkin, Mike Myers, Jay Roach, David Goyer, Tom Shadyac, Michel Gondry, Raja Gosnell, Mandeville Films, Jonathan Mostow, Dean Parisot, Neal Moritz, Andy Fleming, David and Ian Purchase, John Crowley and John Carney.
