Meanwhile, Littman's legal representative Howard King said that in the firing email sent by Coster-Waldau, the actor "acknowledged his obligation to pay commissions to Impression on his earnings from Game of Thrones "till it ends" and that Littman's work for him was "absolutely stellar".
In 2011, according to the suit, Littman and Coster-Waldau decided he should obtain a three-year, O-1 visa, which the USA government issues to foreign nationals considered to have "extraordinary abilities" in various disciplines, including the arts.
The Jaime Lannister actor is suing ex-manager Jill Littman for fraud, The Hollywood Reporter states, under claims that she is now seeking commissions she isn't owed.
The two contracts were inked in 2011 and 2014.
Like many a Hollywood moneymaker before him, Coster-Waldau, thinks he doesn't owe Littman any of his GoT big bucks or anything else since he canned her company back in 2015.
Coster-Waldau is asking the court to declare his 2011 and 2014 contracts invalid, and to terminate any arbitration efforts related to the unpaid commissions.
The actor is now busy with other projects in addition to Game of Thrones, as he appears in the drama Shot Caller with Jon Bernthal and Lake Bell; as well as Domino, a crime thriller helmed by famed director Brian De Palma. However, while Littman was working on the actor's visa application ― which the Danish actor required for USA work opportunities ― Coster-Waldau claims she convinced him to formalize their agreement in writing.
"Indeed, the only real factual dispute in this case is the timing of the Defendants' dishonesty", wrote attorney Michael Plonsker, guessing as to whether Impression always meant to hold Coster-Waldau to the terms of the agreement, while misleading him. He claims the arbitration provision in his contract is unenforceable because the documents were signed as a result of fraud. "I am disappointed that, in addition to reneging on his contractual obligation to pay Impression for the hard work for which he expressed his gratitude many times, he has chosen to try to publicize our issues instead of to abide by the arbitration agreement to which he willingly and knowingly consented", she said in the July 27 document.
In 2014, when the term of the first visa was about to expire, Littman convinced Coster-Waldau to sign a similar agreement to the 2011 contract, which he once again thought had exclusively to do with his new visa application, the suit states.
