The actress/singer/businesswoman has spent time at every major Hollywood talent agency, sometimes more than once. But I’m told that UTA board member Tracey Jacobs has just signed J-Lo in film and television with the focus on restarting her dormant acting career (after she had twins). J-Lo is prepping to start two films in the fall: one is Love And Other Impossible Pursuits directed by Don Roos that Marc Platt is producing along with Lopez’s production company Nuyorican (with partner Simon Fields). The other is The Governess from the Yari film group and J-Lo’s Nuyorican. In TV, Nuyorican just sold a project to ABC based on J-Lo’s successful pic Maid In Manhattan and is soon starting production on the tween/teen Latina series Amiga Sweet 15 for the Disney Channel. UTA helped start J-Lo in acting by putting her in Selena and Steven Soderbergh’s Out Of Sight. Since then, she’s been at CAA, ICM, Endeavor, and William Morris.
