YouTube star Flula Borg has signed with UTA.
Borg is best known for his constantly absurdist comedy and music videos on YouTube, where he has more than 450,000 subscribers and 56 million lifetime views.
Recently, the star has begun to venture beyond his YouTube channel and on to other media platforms. He’s appeared in shows and videos for Vevo and Screen Junkies, among others, and will star opposite the likes of Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson in the sequel to “Pitch Perfect.” Next year, he will also appear in “Killing Hasselhoff,” a comedy from WWE Studios starring David Hasselhoff, Ken Jeong, and Hulk Hogan.
Unaffiliated with any multi-channel network, Borg joins a roster of YouTube stars repped by UTA that includes Shane Dawson, Joey Graceffa, and “Action Movie Kid.”
Borg’s signing was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
