Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is on a YouTube talent acquisition kick. Only a week after adding YouTube star Timothy DeLaGhetto to its roster, the Hollywood talent agency has signed digital celebrities Kian Lawley and Jc Caylen.
CAA will help develop both digital and traditional opportunities for Lawley (who is already starring in the upcoming film The Chosen and has previously participated in Hollywood marketing stunts) and Caylen. These opportunities will encompass film and television deals, endorsements, TV commercials, in-person appearances, publishing, and more. According to Variety, Andrew Graham of AwesomenessTV’s Big Frame will still be responsible for managing the digital duo.
Lawley and Caylen were previous members of the YouTube supergroup Our2ndLife, which officially disbanded its channel in December 2014 (popular member Connor Franta had already left for personal reasons.) Now, Lawley and Caylen jointly run the YouTube channel they launched in January 2015, called KianAndJc. Since its debut, KianAndJc has amassed over 900,000 subscribers and over 19 million video views.
