Tom Hollander Signs With CAA (EXCLUSIVE)

“Feud: Capote vs. the Swans” star Tom Hollander has signed with CAA for representation.

The BAFTA winner and Tony and Olivier Award-nominee currently stars as Truman Capote in the FX limited series, which tells the true story of how Capote’s friendship with members of New York high society — particularly a group of glamorous socialites whom he’d nicknamed “the swans” — was rocked when excerpts of his unfinished novel “Answered Prayers,” a thinly veiled tell-all about the city’s elite, were published.

In her review of the series, Variety TV critic Alison Herman praised Hollander’s portrayal of the acclaimed, yet enigmatic author.

“With his distinctive, high-pitched whine, and a look — fedora, glasses, scarf … Capote has all the outlines of a caricature, and in fact became one later in his life,” Herman wrote. “But Hollander doesn’t just nail Capote’s mincing affect and reedy wheeze. He finds the sadness of a man whose demons have drowned out his gifts, and who sold out his friends in a dual act of desperation and self-sabotage.”

The marquee role comes after Hollander delivered a memorable (and memeable) turn in the second installment of the hit HBO series “The White Lotus.” He also voices the iconic character of Alfred Pennyworth in the the Max animated series “Harley Quinn.”

Hollander previously won a BAFTA Television Award for best supporting actor for the AMC/BBC One limited series “The Night Manager,” following three consecutive BAFTA nominations for “Rev.” In film, his credits also include “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Bird Box,” “A Private War,” the 2005 film adaptation of “Pride & Prejudice,” “About Time” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. On stage, Hollander earned Tony and Olivier Award nominations for his performance in the revival of Tom Stoppard’s play “Travesties,” which ran on both Broadway and the West End.

In addition to CAA, Hollander continues to be represented by United Agents in the UK, Anonymous Content and ID PR.
