Tyler Blevins aka the gaming phenomena “Ninja” continues to make waves that transcend the gaming industry as the superstar has just signed to the biggest talent agency in Hollywood.
After having a turbulent year with the shutdown of Mixer, which saw Ninja taking his talent to Youtube and then back to Twitch. The Fortnite streamer has now decided to round out 2020 with an unprecedented move.
Ninja signs to Creative Artists Agency (CAA)
According to THR, Ninja who has more than 16 million followers on Twitch has signed a deal with the Creative Artists Agency (CAA) for representation in all areas. Previously he has been represented by talent agency Popdog/Loaded, which focuses specifically on the streamers. CAA is one of the biggest Hollywood talent agency which represents many recognizable celebrities around the globe like Brad Pitt, Ariana Grande, Tom Cruise, and more.
The CAA agency covers a wide range of public figures from the sporting world to music, actors, and obviously the gaming world too. Even some familiar faces like Dr. Disrespect was one of the first streamers to join CAA. This new step in his career puts Tyler alongside many popular A-list celebrities around the world.
What’s next for Ninja?
Well, it will be too early to tell what kind of opportunities this new deal will bring to Ninja. But taking Dr. Disrespect as an example, it’s clear that the agency will create some exciting moments. Logan Paul, Amanda Cerny are just some of the more famous internet personalities represented by the agency. So, it could be possible that big collaborations with such creators could be on the way for him.
For now, he is exclusively streaming on Twitch once again, and there are no signs of slowing down for the 29-year-old especially after this big announcement.
