EXCLUSIVE: Ellen Burstyn, the Oscar, Tony and Emmy winner who has been on a great TV role roll of late on the likes of Netflix’s House Of Cards and as Allison Janney’s mom on CBS’ Mom, has signed with ICM Partners.
Burstyn became only the third woman in history to win the Tony Award and the Academy Award in the same year, for her work in Bernard Slade’s Same Time, Next Year on Broadway and in Martin Scorsese’s Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, which earned her the Best Actress Oscar — the second of six Oscar noms in a 60-year career. She won Emmys in 2009 and most recently in 2013 for USA’s Political Animals.
Next up, Burstyn will be seen in Todd Solondz’s Sundance pic Weiner-Dog, and soon begins shooting the indie House Of Tomorrow opposite Nick Offerman.
Burstyn, previously with Innovative Artists, continues to be repped by MGMT Entertainment.
