Deadline reports that Josh has signed with CAA (Creative Artists Agency). He has been in play since recently leaving ICM, the agency that repped Josh since he was 11 years old and which booked him into The Hunger Games and Journey To The Center Of The Earth franchises as well as The Kids Are All Right. CAA is thought to be one of the top agencies in film with a client list that includes Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Nicole Kidman, and many others.
Josh Hutcherson and Queen Latifah will help honor four teenagers at the awards show founded by Nick Cannon, which is set to be broadcast live for the first time.
Nickelodeon announced Monday that the “Hunger Games” actor and rapper-actress will present trophies at the fifth annual TeenNick HALO Awards, which recognize teen volunteers for outstanding community service. The honors will be presented during a ceremony at the Hollywood Palladium on Nov. 17 and broadcast live on Nick at Nite.
Cannon says HALO, which stands for Helping and Leading Others, aims to “continue the conversations about issues that impact teens today, and empower young people to take action and make a difference.” This year’s honorees are involved with causes such as transgender rights, autism awareness, urban revitalization and girls’ education.
