Ousted Infinity Ward co-founders Vince Zampella and Jason West have signed with Hollywood’s biggest talent agency, the LA Times reports.

The duo is now being represented by the Creative Artists Agency.

The article notes that most game developers work for publishers and are not represented by talent agents, so landing the pair marks a coup for CAA.

At least one of the other top Hollywood agencies was looking to sign West and Zampella since they lost their jobs, according to a person familiar with the situation.

Zampella and West were spectacularly fired from Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward for “insubordination” in early March.

They are currently suing Activision for alleged unpaid royalties and control of the Modern Warfare brand.
