Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed with UTA, the company announced on Monday.
The agency will represent the global superstar and two-time Governor of California in all areas.
Schwarzenegger, whose films have grossed more than $4.7 billion worldwide, is reprising his role in the “Terminator” franchise with “Terminator: Dark Fate,” which hits theaters Nov. 1. He will also star in the upcoming “Kung Fury 2” and will lend his voice to the animated family series “Superhero Kindergarten,” created by Stan Lee. Schwarzenegger starred in the tentpole franchises “The Expendables” and “Conan,” as well as the films “True Lies,” “Last Action Hero,” “Total Recall,” “Twins,” “Kindergarten Cop,” “Predator” and “Commando.” Earlier in his career, he won a Golden Globe award for his role in “Stay Hungry.”
Schwarzenegger has also authored several books, including his bestselling autobiography, “Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story.” He first rose to global recognition winning the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and later as a seven-time Mr. Olympia champion.
After serving as California Governor from 2003 to 2011, he founded the Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy at the University of Southern California to help promote nonpartisan solutions to public policy issues. He also founded the non-profit environmental organization Regions of Climate Action (R20), which works with the United Nations and the world’s leading NGOs to accelerate the implementation of green infrastructure within the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and waste optimization, among others.
Schwarzenegger remains a leading voice in politics, using his platform to raise awareness around political reform and climate change. As an environmentalist, he executive produced and starred in the Showtime documentary “Years of Living Dangerously,” which focused on the effects of global warming and won a Primetime Emmy award for “Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series.”
Additionally, he served as Chairman of the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness & Nutrition, an organization which works to increase youth sports participation from children of all backgrounds and abilities; and founded the After-School All-Stars program, which provides free, high-quality educational programs for students.
Schwarzenegger continues to be represented by attorney Patrick Knapp of Goodman Schenkman & Brecheen and his financial partner Paul Wachter of Main Street Advisors.
