Four For Friday

#1. With the writer's and actor's strike looming, this show has been filming almost constantly. The male star of this network drama has been doing so much coke and speed to keep himself alert during filming that he looks wildly different not only from each episode to the next, but even from scene to scene which is causing even more filming.

#2. Just because someone got married within the last three months doesn't mean this B list television actress should stop sleeping with her ex-boyfriend does it?

#3. The dog fighting scandal that has rocked professional football could be set to claim another participant. This time it will be one of Hollywood's brightest young film stars. Only B- list, but rocketing up quickly, this actor has hosted dog fights and even breeds them. Not a huge scandal on its own, but he also says he's a vegan and an outspoken supporter of animal rights. I guess he may have to rethink that whole thing huh?

#4. This married A list male actor who has been in a number one film within the last year or so recently stopped in to an adult video store. He rented four movies starring the same actress. The clerk said something to the effect of our actor must really like the actress. Our A lister said he was going to f**k her later that night and wanted to see what he was getting in advance.

Actress salaries obviously vary. An A lister is going to make more than A B, etc. USUALLY. This B list film actress who is thin, usually blond, and has surprisingly good teeth can often be found in A list movies and gets paid just as much as any female A lister. She has been making A list money even when she was just C list or even just doing bit parts. How does she manage such big paydays? Have you noticed how she primarily works with the same studio for most of her films? It could have something to do with the fact that a studio boss was in love/lust with her and she seduced him and did him and filmed it with his knowledge. You can see where this goes. She has several copies of the tape and knows how to get them to his wife. Letting the company pay for your mistakes with a higher salary for an actress is much easier than having your wife divorce you and taking your personal fortune.

OK- I have been researching. I went back and looked at everyone's guesses. Then I looked at the imdb profiles for the following, and I looked at each ones movies and production companies. There were A FEW repeats, but nothing that would seem abnormal or send up a red flag for the following:
Charlize Theron
Clarie Danes
Kate Bosworth
Renee Zellweger
Cameron Diaz

I seriously looked at each, and wrote them down as I went along. I seriously think we can rule out all 5 of these guesses.

Steel Magnolia's
Flatliners
Mary Reilly
Hook
My best Friend's wedding
Stepmom
Notting Hill
Erin Brokovich
The Mexican
America's Sweethearts
Mona lIsa Smiles
Closer
Hmmm..... ALL are Columbia Tri-Star pictures. ALL are JULIA ROBERTS?! What is she known for? Her huge toothy grin. She MAY be a-list, not b-list- but she can't open a movie. SH'e had ALOT of bombs. Could she be the actress that seduced an exec and taped it? SHe also did a couple Sony movies, which is Columbia Tri-star's parent company (I think).

#1 Entourage
#3 Toby McGuire

kim said...

pariss good observation and she does make big bucks over everyone and since you mentioned that she was the blind item her before about sleeping with george to get him in a movie so i would say she makes more sense then anyone and she makes top dollars.

betsnup said...

Parisss - the only thing that doesn't work is that Julia isn't usually blonde.

GGA - excellent guess of Joaquin!

Cleo said...

RE: Parisss
I think you might be on the right track. When I googled "good teeth" and actress Julia Roberts kept showing up. The only reason I was thinking it might not be her, doesn't she usually have red hair?

Anonymous said...

entourage isn't a network show, it's cable

Anonymous said...

Not usually. But regularly blonde. SHe's been prego alot, and alot of women won't dye their hair light when prego. She was a guess, and I was researching all of the guesses. SHe doesn't totally fit the profile, but she is a guess, and ent said someone wa son the right track. Like I said above- Charlize, Cameron, Claire, Renee & Kate are impossible!!! Have a great weekend!!

Lauren said...

love the entourage guess.... maybe its johnny drama...hence the reference to 'drama'

or adrian grenier- 'wildly' could be referring to his wild eyebrows

As a dog lover and vegetarian who believes in protecting animals from cruelty, I am very saddened by number 3. I am quite eager to learn this identity.

#2 Claire Forlani?

Anonymous said...

it's not "entourage". they're wrapped already.

and ent said "male star". meaning there is/are also a female star/stars. and NO ONE respond by saying "debi mazar". it's not "entourage". move on.

think someone along the lines of vince d. from "criminal intent" who has a history of weird behavior on the set.

"l & o" shows banked shows like this the last time there was a strike looming. and it's just about summer. most shows aren't even filming again until august/sept. unless their season is starting very early or they're in constant production.

think network. think drama (which "entourage" is not. "entourage", as we all know, is science fiction).

Anonymous said...

I like the Claire Forlani guess for #3, but also think this could go in a different direction - I'm wondering if it's the ex-BF that got married? EL doesn't say it's the actress who got married, just that someone did.

brittney murphy for #2?

#1 Hugh Laurie, he looks like he is on something!

Anonymous said...

I can't stand tobey mcguire. He seems so wimpy and a total pushover. I completely disagree about him being #3. He is not one of Hollywood's rising stars. It's also not Julia as speculated above. With her big smile, it's obvious to everyone she has nice teeth. DUH

Anonymous said...

I was thinking Britany Murphy for No. 2 but the only TV she's done recently is the voice of Luanne on King of the Hill.

LOST isn't filming anymore anon 12:37. Either is Heroes

Vegan: Casey Afflek

I don't think Joacin is B List...pretty much A-list being an oscar winner and all.

Anonymous said...

entourage is still filming, saw them this week

mary mac said...

RE: Julia Roberts....JR is and always has been A-list...sure she's had some bombs, but she is America's Sweetheart. Julia is also an Oscar Winner and is NOT blond...not EVER!!!

The Deacon said...

Joaquin is a good guess for #3. Even his Wiki says he is a animal rights activist and a vegan.

drcocks said...

anon. 12;42, Hugh Laurie looks high because his character is high on pain meds. Its called acting.

And #3 makes me sick to my stomach. I almost don't want to know who it is because I will hate myself if I have ever supported anything he is in. Fucking asshole.

The Deacon said...

And whoever guess Casey Affleck might be right too. In fact, he is a close friend of Joaquin Phoenix, having even married his sister Summer.

It seems like his acting career has stalled a little while Joaquin can be said to be: up and coming.

But... between the two personality wise, I might have to go with the Casey guess.

Anonymous said...

Entourage just had their premiere for Season 4. And please - Adrian looks delicous, it's not him.

And for #3 - I wouldn't call Joaquin "young" ladies and gents. He's over 30. And Casey's career has been around since his brother's.

But I could be a bit too nitpicky on the clue language...

#3 - Ludacris . . . the dog fighting scandal is Atlanta based . . . so is Ludacris . . .

mary mac said...

#1 I'd be really sad if it was Hugh Laurie. I think he has way too much class to pull a stunt like that. I'm thinking someone far more wild with their ways...

bionic bunny! said...

can't be hugh... pretty sure they are on hiatus at the moment, plus it takes a lot to play a character so different from the actor himself.
there was a whole bit in some mag awhile back about how they get the "house" look.

besided, i adore him, and refuse to think badly of him!!
:)

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing that Shia LeBoff boy for #3 - the kid due to star in the next Indiana Jones film.

He was raised vegan, parents are hippies, but he's also wild as hell. In recent pictures, he's picking up the inner city aesthetic. Hasn't he been in a couple fights recently?

#4 - get the feeling this guy was being a smart ass with the clerk for asking a dumb question.

#2 - can't even begin to guess.

#1 - what network shows are filming now? All the summer replacements are on cable.

Anonymous said...

#4...Ben "The One With The Screamer" Stiller?

Anonymous said...

#1 - Josh Duhamel? They're filming season 5 of Las Vegas already.

mary mac said...

Josh Duhamel is an excellent guess.

Anonymous said...

House is still on hiatus. I was thinking James Woods and Shark, but I'm not sure if it's back in production or not. I can't think of any summer replacement shows that aren't reality shows.

Anonymous said...

#1 has to be the guy from L&O Criminal Intent. I knew people that worked on that show- that guy is all coked up.

Ok I'm going to throw my 2 cents in (and it's probably not worth that), but here goes anyway.

1) David Caruso - the guy from CSI Miami just gives me the creeps on a normal day.

3) What about Josh Hartnett? He's a PETA/vegan guy. Kinda B list - don't know about the up and coming thing though.

As I said - 2 cents worth

Anonymous said...

Parisss, I think it's Lindsay Lohan.

alex said...

#2 does not necesssarily mean that the GIRL got married - I think we need to widen our net and start thinking of MEN who got married recently and have a B-list TV actress ex.

And stop choosing Entourage for #1 - it is CABLE not network, as someone pointed out already.

Anonymous said...

I stand by the JP guess because of these descriptions: "rocked professional football" "rocketing up" which reminds me of him playing Johnny Cash - ok, it's a stretch, but still.

You got better, bring it!

Casey is on the list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vegans

I guess he's an OK guess too, but he doesn't rock to me.

Someone mentioned he's not young. Weird thing is I still think of JP as that kid in To Die For where he was way hot. He aged? Man, I guess I did too!

I don't know who Number Three is but I want very bad things to happen to him...

(I can't wait until one of the brillant research wizards on here figures this one out... I'm dying to know who the b@st@rd is.)

Anonymous said...

Number 3 sounds like Shia to me too anon 1:31pm. He has had a hit film in Disturbia;and is currently a voice in Surf's up. He will be in the upcoming Transformers and will be playing the son of Indiana Jones. Sounds like a bright{young} film star. Number 1 sounds like Josh Duhamel. I saw him on the today show and he stated that they were currently filming the show. He did have a wild look in his eyes but at the time I attributed it to lack of sleep.

Anonymous said...

#3, Casey Affleck: Good guess, a solid B-lister who is getting all the good buzz, and then some, about his costarring role with Brad Pitt in "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (he plays Ford). Expect lots of awards/Oscar buzz for him.

Shia LeBeouf is another good guess. Definitely a B-lister with a rocketing career right now.

BTW: Jack Coleman (Horn-Rimmed Glasses guy on "Heroes") had a chat session on TheEnvelope.com the other day and mentioned that "Heroes" goes back into production next WEEK. He said each ep takes 10-14 days to shoot, which accounts for the early start, but it also has to be NBC wanting to make sure they have eps in the can prior to a strike. They had to have had NO hiatus to speak about.

Anonymous said...

No way is #3 Joaquin. He has been a devout veagn since birth practically and his parents are strict vegan hippies. Plus i dont think EL would describe an Oscar nominee as up and coming...

romc said...

anon 1:31 seems right on with shia labeouf for #3. he is def up and coming with indy 4. is a vegan and was in charlie's angel: full throttle - the rocketing reference as well as in the transformers which do rocket up...

casey affleck is from an overeducated cambridge family, married and has a young child. it seems unlikey he and summer phoenix are hosting dog fights. and joaquin has been acting for 15 years. he is way past "up and coming."

claire forlani is the only b-list tv actress i could find married in the last three months

Anonymous said...

#1 possibly Matthew Perry? He's had drug problems in the past and they are still shooting S60, aren't they?

#2 no idea (yet)

#3 Shia. Not Joaquin (although he's a good guess). Joaquin is too established. And Casey is certified B-list.

#4 This is good stuff. I'm very curious.

Anonymous said...

I hope it's not shia labeouf, but I googled his image just to make sure I was thinking of the right person. Coincedentally, a picture came up of him holding onto a fierec looking bulldog. Doesn't really mean anything, I just thought it was funny & interesting.

Anonymous said...

Glad to see my Shia guess get some attention. I'm usually so bad at this.


But I can still see Shia being immature and bone-headed enough to mess around with dog fights and breeding. He lead a pretty sheltered life before Hollywood, and might be experimenting for street cred.

Mia said...

Can I just chime in and add that Shia didn't have much of a 'sheltered' life before hollywood, he is outspoken on the fact that he started acting to bring money into his household after watching his father battle a heroin addiction, and he was a kid star from his early pre-teens... Up-and coming/rising actors? yes... immature/experimenting for street cred? doubtful. He also is at the point in his career where if he wanted to he could be flashing his preverbial mangina for publicityby fame whoring after the release of Disturbia and his announced role in Indy 4 but he seems to be focusing more on his career than his fame...

Anonymous said...

Anon 3:39 --- that is an English bull dog, not one of the fighting breeds. They are total lover dogs. But not saying that it isn't Shia, just saying that's nowhere near the kind of dogs they use to fight.

And Anon 3:59, I truly hope you're just a troll. But in case you aren't, why don't you volunteer your services as bait for dog fight training? Then come back and tell us how ok it is. Oh, that's right ---- the dogs would kill you. Never mind.

bluegirl said...

To anon 3:59 according to Wiki-

Dog fighting is a fight between game dogs. Illegal in many countries, this blood sport is nevertheless a source of revenue for entertainment and stud fees. Dog fighting has also been linked to organized crime and gangs.

I'm with Shia unfortunately on this one. I think he has a bit of a dark side... :-(

My guess' for these lovely BI's:

BI 1: Keifer sounds good... but I really thought his drug of choice was booze. Not coke. Sadly I thought of Christopher Meloni simply cause he has gotten very wired looking in the last year.

BI 2: Brittney Murphy ... her new marriage seems like a very impulsive move not well thought out. And she has had numerous groom-wanna-be in the last couple of years.

BI 3: I don't have any good guess' for this one... but I don't think anyone has named them yet. Strictly cause the names mention all have been steadily working for years.

BI 4: Okay I love this one... strictly cause it made me laugh. And I tend to think of the male actor as being older... over 40. Someone who is not in the pages of US Weekly or the National Enquirer. Someone who can roam around in the local video store with ease.

Twisted Sister said...

Anon 1:21 - regarding BI 4, I agree that it's someone older, and it was probably said as a joke. I could so see Alan Arkin making a crack like that and be totally kidding, but of course the gossip sites would never report it that way.

Anonymous said...

I don't know why, but I thought of William H. Macy for #4. Not sure if he's had any number one movies in the last year. He probably has.

I though of Brittany Murphy for #2 because I don't think it's a "real" marriage. I think it's more a marriage of convenience.

For number BI #1 I thought of the actor for Smallville. I didn't really research that one... it was just a thought.

Melissa said...

I agree with the lone poster who tried to point out that #3 could very possibly be Josh Hartnet. He is def B- list which JP is not. Surely ent wouldnt classify himas B- he is classic B. Josh is very spoken out about animal rights and peta. I dont know if he says he's a vegan but i could find out easy. I think it's a great guess.
Now, Pariss Ent has already made it clear julia is an A list star to him as a matter of fact when he did a BI about her he even called her A++ list. Good that u researched but, it's not impossible for it to be one of the others u mentioned I haven't researched the rest but, i can tell u Cameron has been in at least 4 0r 5 Dreamwork pictures with more coming.
Also, we should keep in mind that in #2 wording could be everything.It might have been the ex boyfriend who got married and not the actress, Its not really clear so lets keep that in mind though it probally is the actress.

Melissa said...

Yes, btw, Josh is a vegan. He is my vote. Great guess, anon 2:16

kdjccr said...

My vote is Kiefer for #1. He has been quoted as saying that he had a previous love affair with coke and enjoyed the rituals of preparing the coke as much as doing it. Per Defamer, "I did like the ceremony, the ritual of preparing cocaine as much as doing it," he tells Britain's Mail on Sunday. "I did it for a year, loved it and then stopped."

Remember this one?

So this A list couple but in reality B listers when it comes to movies, have employees just like almost every other Hollywood couple. When they hire a new employee that employee must sign a confidentiality agreement which basically precludes said employee from spilling everything they see. Well this Hollywood couple has some definite things to hide including guests who visit for fun and games and some kids who are not as well behaved as one would imagine. It turns out that a recently fired maid was reminded when she was fired about the confidentiality agreement she had signed and thus couldn't say anything to anyone about what had gone on in the house.

The maid said she had never signed such a thing and a check of the her file showed she was in fact correct. The person who had hired her had been filling in for someone else and had neglected to get the maid to sign the requisite form. Even though she had just been fired, the employer tried to get the maid to sign a new form right then and there. She refused. Immediately after leaving the house, her next act was to call a few tabloids to sell her story. When they realized she hadn't signed an agreement they jumped hard.

When the celebrity couple were informed of the impending scandal they were going to face, they jumped even harder. They first offered the maid a new job with a better salary, but she didn't want to go back. She finally settled for a cool $100K to keep everything hush-hush. The employee who failed to get the original signature was fired but can't do or say anything because they had been given the confidentiality agreement and signed it.


I was the naysayer who was convinced that this was a recycled BI about Madge and Guy's nanny. Appears I was wrong.

http://popbytes.com/archive/2007/06/brad_pitt_angelina_jolie_nanny_spills_the_beans.shtml

This must be the one that ent was referring to about a board that was matching current headlines to his previous BI's.

Anonymous said...

#1 has got to be Keifer- in 24 it is absolutely essential that takes of Kiefer look extremely similar throughout the entire series for obvious reasons. Why would the BI emphasise the difference evident between episodes as well as takes unless it was very important?
To be honest, there are worse things in the world than an exhausted crew and cast doing coke. Whomever number 3 is deserves to rot in hell.
