Consulting firm Beck Media & Marketing is acquiring Insignia Public Relations, which is run by veteran Hollywood media strategist Eddie Michaels.

While Beck Media & Marketing focuses primarily on the digital space, Michaels is something of an old school public relations man who wotks with both actors and producers including Illumination Entertainment, the family animation company behind "Despicable Me."

Michaels is also something of a crisis specialist and last week was retained by "Two and a Half Men" co-star Angus T. Jones after a video of the actor blasting the show became public.

Beck Media said Insignia's clients are expected to follow Michaels to his new digs.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
