Jack, Gina and Annette in 1966


ICM Partners Toasts Veteran Talent Agent Jack Gilardi. The Hollywood Reporter Nov 11, 2014. Hollywood players are often criticized for a lack of loyalty, but the same complaint cannot be directed toward Jack Gilardi. | On Oct. 27, ICM Partners feted the veteran talent agent for his whopping 60th anniversary at the agency. In 1954, Gilardi started at General Artists Corporation, which later joined Creative Management Associates only to see that company merge with International Famous Agency in 1975 to form ICM Partners’ direct predecessor International Creative Management. During his long (and still going) career, Gilardi’s roster of former and current talent includes iconic names like Charlton Heston, Frankie Avalon, Frankie Valli, Caroll O’Connor, Telly Savalas, Jerry Lewis, Cliff Robertson, Ann Margaret, Robert Wagner, Sylvester Stallone, Shirley MacLaine, Joe Mantegna, Beverly D’Angelo and Jaclyn Smith. Gilardi married Annette Funicello and had three children with the late actress.
