Belgian-Congolese TV personality Kody Kim has signed a representation contract with CAA.
Kim is best known for hosting a show on Belgian channel La Deux from 2015 to 2017. Born in Belgium to Congolese parents, the presenter was notable for his impersonations of famous French stars such as Gérard Depardieu and Jean Paul Belmondo.
He is also a comedian, actor, and radio personality. Kim first appeared in the 2015 dark fantasy comedy The Brand New Testament, directed by Jaco Van Dormael and screened at Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes. The French-language film, which also stars Catherine Deneuve and Benoît Poelvoorde, is about a cruel Belgian who plays God in his tiny apartment in Brussels.
Since then, Kim has played various roles in several films, including 2019’s Lucky and 2020’s Losers Revolution. Most recently, he directed Gaetan Lieken’s and David Mutzenmacher’s burlesque thriller Music Hole.
Kim’s career began in 2003 with the theater company The Kings of Comedy, which led to his first critically acclaimed show, My Way, in which Kim spoke about his personal life, Congolese upbringing, and various professional experiences in the industry.
After “My Way,” Kim hosted radio shows for VivaCité and RTBF. In 2020 he also hosted the 10th Annual Magritte Awards, celebrating Belgian cinema and modeled after the César Awards in France.
The actor is currently filming Season 2 of Lost in Traplanta. The new part of the show is entitled “Lost in California”.
Kim will continue to be represented by La Fabrique 67 and JVM Avocats.
