Seacrest changes representation to CAA

Ryan SeacrestRyan Seacrest, host of American Idol, New Year's Rockin' Eve and a myriad of other television and radio project, has left the agency WMA and signed a contract with CAA. The same agency represents two of Seacrest's American Idol co-conspirators, Simon Fuller and Simon Cowell.

Among well-known stars, agency switching happens all the time. It is a telling sign that WMA wasn't even involved with his contract renegotiations with the American Idol producers and Seacrest still came out ahead on that one.

The fact that he was with WMA for 10 years is somewhat surprising, but consider that a former WMA rep named Adam Sher aided with his contract negotiations, I suspect that he stayed with the company more for the people involved than the company itself. Or quite possibly he just found a better deal elsewhere.

At this rate of fame and wealth, Seacrest should be able to start his own religion before too long. He could compete with Scientology.
