Oscar-winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman, beaten out for Best Actor at the Tonys, has been at Paradigm agency for years
Philip Seymour Hoffman has left Paradigm Talent Agency, TheWrap has learned
Hoffman informed the agency of his decision in the past few days, and for now he plans on going it alone, two individuals with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. A spokeswoman for Hoffman did not immediately returned a request for comment.
The news comes a day after Hoffman lost the Tony Award for his performance in "Death of a Salesman," a prize he was heavily favored to win.
Hoffman, an Oscar winner for "Capote," will next be seen onscreen this fall in Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master."
At Paradigm he was represented by Sarah Fargo and Chris Schmidt. Hoffman was one of the agency's most prominent film actors, so the loss is significant as Paradigm tries to establish a niche for itself among other prominent players like CAA and WME.
Paradigm still has a roster that includes Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Cooper and Adrien Brody, but over the past couple of years it has lost high-profile talent such as Katherine Heigl, Mariska Hargitay and Gary Oldman.
Its greatest strength is in music where it represents artists such as Coldplay, the Black Eyed Peas and Dave Matthews Band.
