EXCLUSIVE: CAA has signed David Oyelowo, who is coming off Lee Daniels’ The Butler, part of the cast nominated for a SAG ensemble award, followed by co-starring in the Christopher Nolan-directed Interstellar opposite Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Oyelowo, who has been doing fine work for a long time in everything from Jack Reacher to Red Tails, The Help and Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, had been with WME. His exit appears to be fallout from the recent exit of Brian Swardstrom to UTA. Oyelowo continues to be represented in the UK by Christian Hodell at Hamilton Hodell and manager Glenn Rigberg at Inphenate. His attorney is Ira Schreck at Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.
