EXCLUSIVE: Michael Ealy, who played the sociopathic title character in Sony/Screen Gems’ recent hit The Perfect Guy, has signed with UTA for representation in all areas. The deal comes amid a hot stretch for the actor, who on the big screen has been in Think Like A Man and Think Like A Man Too and About Last Night. He also just signed on to star opposite Juliette Lewis on Season 2 of ABC’s anthology crime drama series Secrets & Lies.
Perfect Guy, which was released September 11 and finished No. 1 in its debut weekend, grossed $56.8M domestically.
Ealy was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2005 for his role in Showtime’s Sleeper Cell, and also starred in Fox’s futuristic drama series Almost Human which was canceled last year after one season. He continues to be repped by manager Darryl Taja at Epidemic and attorneys Matt Johnson and Wendy Kirk at Ziffren.
