Chiwetel EjioforEXCLUSIVE: CAA has signed Chiwetel Ejiofor, shortly after the British actor starred as the principal character in the Steve McQueen-directed Twelve Years A Slave, opposite Michael Fassbender and Brad Pitt.

Ejiofor, for my money one of the best actors around, has credits that include Dirty Pretty Things, Love Actually, Children Of Men, American Gangster, Salt and Inside Man. His next acting turn comes in the BBC production of the Stephen Poliakoff-directed Dancing On The Edge. He also wrote and directed the short film Slapper and is adapting the William Kamkwamba book The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind.

With the move, he ends a long run at ICM Partners. Ejiofor continues to be repped in the U.K. by Alex Irwin of Markham, Froggatt and Irwin and Jenne Casarotto of Casarotto, Ramsay & Associates, and attorney Robert Wallerstein.

The interesting thing is Chiwetel's provided support to Denzel in two high-profile vehicles--Inside Man and American Gangster....

You mean "Dirty Pretty Things". And I agree that is his best film. Unfortunately Hollywood has no...
Brits are overrated
