The Hollywood Reporter

Longtime agents Kim Hodgert and Kami Putnam-Heist, who represent actors such as Margot Robbie and James Franco, have left CAA to become managers at Anonymous Content.

Hodgert has spent 26 years at CAA, repping some of the brightest young talents such Alden Ehrenreich, who is playing the young Han Solo in an upcoming spin-off movie, Gugu Mbatha-Maw, Dane DeHaan, as well as actors such as Eva Mendes and Josh Jackson.

Hodgert has always had an eye for young male actors and counted Jake Gyllenhaal as one of her first clients.

Putnam-Heist has been with the agency since 2011, moving over from WME. She had been at Gersh before that, where she first signed Franco.

Among her clients now are James Franco's brother, Dave Franco, Brit Marling, Logan Lerman, Matt Bomer, Jennifer Connolly, Nina Dobrev Zachary Levi.

It is unclear which clients will transition with Hodgert and Putnam-Heist but it will shake itself out in the coming days or weeks.
