*CAA has taken on Chris Tucker as a client, reports Deadline.com.
The “Rush Hour” star, who had been repped by William Morris, returned to film after a five year absence to star with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in the David O Russell-directed “The Silver Linings Playbook,” due in theaters this fall.
Tucker made one of the most meteoric salary jumps in Hollywood history when he went from a $3 million salary for “Rush Hour” to making $20 million against 20% of the gross. The three “Rush Hour” films grossed more than $800 million worldwide.
Tucker’s currently on a U.S. comedy tour. He continues to be represented by his longtime attorney Susan C. Adamson.
