Creative Artist Agency, one of Hollywood's most well-known talent agencies, has announced that it has signed Caitlyn Jenner to its roster, according to The Wrap. Jenner will become a client in the agency's speaking department, with the intent of setting up speaking engagements where Jenner will talk about her transgender experience and to address LGBT issues. Jenner has had extensive experience as a motivational speaker in the past as well, which was detailed in a previous New York Times profile on Kris Jenner.
CAA was quick to note that this has nothing to do with taking advantage of Jenner's new life in the limelight. "Jenner did not sign with CAA hoping the agency would generate film and television roles for her, as neither side wishes to exploit her newfound celebrity," The Wrap reports. Additionally, Jenner already has an eight-part docu-series with E! about to air.
