Holmes quits Cruise's agency

Katie Holmes

Katie Holmes has quit the agency that represents her ex-husband Tom Cruise.

The actress left CAA in favour of another high-powered firm, ICM Partners.

Tom has been a longtime client of CAA, reports

The agency switch also follows the closing of Katie's Broadway show Dead Accounts due to poor ticket sales.

The comedy, about an Ohio woman who lives at home with her parents, was originally slated to run until February 24.

Katie took her final bow on January 6 instead.

Critics were less than impressed with her performance. The actress even admitted to forgetting her lines when she was a guest on America's The Late Show with David Letterman last month.

Katie is next scheduled to appear in an as-yet untitled film directed by Christian Camargo. William Hurt, Jean Reno, Ben Wishaw, Mary Rylance and Allison Janney will co-star in the project.

Katie saw her career skyrocket after the success of her hit 1990s American television series Dawson's Creek. Critics claim acquiring roles took a backseat when she married movie star Tom in 2006. Media reports centered more on her high-profile marriage than her career.

Deadline reports ICM executives are looking to help Katie "recapture that early mojo" with television and film roles.

Katie is still managed by John Carrabino.

A spokesperson for the star has not commented on the reason behind her agency move.

Katie filed for divorce from Tom in June 2012 after five years of marriage. The former couple, who share a six-year-old daughter named Suri, settled the divorce last summer.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


It's difficult to deal with a highly competitive colleague. Every time you submit work, they try to find ways to outperform you. Although you have no interest in pitting your talent against theirs, this other person thinks very differently. Ignoring them won't be possible. A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
