Star Agent Defects

From TMZ's City Of Industry Blog:

International Creative Management has lost a key talent agent today in Chris Andrews, a rep to clients like Orlando Bloom, Felicity Huffman, Sir Ian McKellan and Guy Pearce, among others.

While it's clear that Andrews is headed to Creative Artists Agency, still unclear is who might be going with him. A CAA source confirmed the hire, but cautioned that Andrew's full client list might not emerge until morning. Andrews also serves on the team of many of ICM co-president Ed Limato's clients, who include Richard Gere, Mel Gibson, Paul Walker, and Denzel Washington. Most of those clients are expected to stay at ICM, an insider said.

A call placed to ICM was not returned at deadline, but sources there confirm Andrews' departure.
