EXCLUSIVE: Actor and comedian Tom Arnold has signed with ICM Partners following the closure of upstart agency Resolution. The move reunites Arnold with John Burnham, the former William Morris agent who landed the actor a role in his first film, 1992’s Hero, and put him in front of James Cameron who cast him opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger in True Lies. Arnold can be seen in Mike Myers’ documentary Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon. He’s currently filming Yahoo’s comedy series Sin City Saints with Andrew Santino and Malin Akerman and has indie drama Any Day with Sean Bean, Eva Longoria, and Kate Walsh coming up along with a role in Chevy Chase’s holiday film Shelby.
The onetime Roseanne actor still tours with his stand-up act and hosts CMT’s My Big Redneck TV franchise. Early career highlights include Nine Months, McHale’s Navy, The Stupids, and a memorable scene in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. In recent years Arnold popped up on FX’s Sons of Anarchy and last fall had a turn in the bilingual limited release hit film Pulling Strings, from Pantelion. He’s continues to be represented by Untitled Entertainment and attorneys Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal, Laviolette & Feldman.
