The angry young man of Bollywood turned elder statesman can now add another hyphenate to his stellar career, Hollywood actor with top-tier representation!  In a great piece of news, Amitabh Bachchan has signed with hot, new Hollywood agency Resolution.  No doubt that Anil Kapoor had a hand in bringing Amitabh over to stateside representation as Anil is represented by mega-agent David Unger at Resolution.

It’s likely that Resolution is seeking to build on Amitabh’s great cameo as Jewish gangster Meyer Wolfsheim in ‘The Great Gatsby‘.  He more than held his own in pivotal scenes with Hollywood mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in the Baz Luhrman directed vehicle. The film was based on the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel of the same name and went on to gross over $330 million worldwide.

No word on any upcoming Hollywood projects to Amitabh yet, but he’s currently filming Bollywood film ‘Welcome Back‘ with stars Anil Kapoor and John Abraham.  We’ll keep you posted on any of Amitabh’s future films, both Hollywood and Bollywood, and we’re sure there will be many more Hollywood projects in his future with such strong representation.
