  • From Target to IMG, Zach Miko has taken all of his 6 foot 6 inch self to the max and is changing the meaning of "big and tall."

    Miko is the first model signed to IMG's newest branch: Brawn. The mid-twenties actor says his modeling career actually came and found him, not the other way around.

  • Miko opened up with a first-hand account of his signing, saying "IMG found me on Instagram and invited me and my manager to come in and have a meeting," he said. "I had to reread the e-mail several times to totally believe that IMG was contacting me. I went in and Ivan [Bart, president of IMG] talked about his vision around diversity and inclusivity and right away I felt like these people get me. They aren’t trying to cash in on something that could be a story. I knew who they were not only because of their roster, but I’ve also been following Ashley Graham’s career very closely and knew she was with IMG."

    Speaking of Graham, Miko is a huge fan of his fellow plus-sized model and is proud to be considered her equal. We're proud too, and happy to see men like Miko rise to the top of their game. We did mention earlier that Miko hadn't started out in modeling, he's also a budding actor. You can check out his reel below:
