Four For Friday - With A Jackass

Full Frontal Friday will be later this afternoon. I appreciate everyone sending in photos so this should be a huge edition.

#1 So there is this sports bar at Times Square and it is Super Bowl Sunday. At this bar you had to buy tables in order to get in (for the game), but this regular person talked herself in anyway and hung out at the bar. There ended up being an empty table, so she approached the guy who "owned" it. (B- list film and television actor who used to be A list back in the late 70's early 1980's) She said from out of town and it's my birthday and I was wondering if I could buy the table from you if you're not using it. The guy looks over and says no problem, I don't need it but you'll have to arrange it at the bar. The woman says thank you so much, you're so great etc - can I tell the waitress your name? Guy stops and says You don't know who I am? She says no. He says just for that you can't have it, Fuck off...turns his back and that was that. No table. She ended up getting drunk at the bar and calling him an asshole every time he walked by to get to the bathroom.

#2 When the wives are out of town, things happen. So what happens when a married socialite who everyone knows gets drunk with a married B list film actress and model. Well turns out that they both liked the same guy they found at the bar in the hotel where they were getting drunk. Instead of fighting over him, they decided to share him for the entire night. And when I mean share, I mean share as in everyone gets naked and shares, not sharing like holding hands sharing.

#3 This foreign born A list actress in her own country and probably C list here in the US. English is not her first language and her only chance at an American film came as a result of her first language. The film was a blockbuster. She wanted to go to LA as she got lots of offers after that first film, but her boyfriend wouldn't let her. He has become so controlling and so jealous of her career that she is not allowed to own a cell phone, and he goes with her everywhere. No one understands why she stays with him, but she doesn't allow anyone to speak bad about him. Of course he has alienated most of her friends anyway.

#4 This new mom who happens to be a B+ film actress shouldn't be counting on the father for the support. He is already choosing from a group of actresses and models and deciding who will get to be with him next. Lets just hope they don't get pregnant also.

#3 has to be Paz Vega, known for speaking Spanish in the movie "Spanglish."

Twisted Sister said...

Grace, you beat me to it!

Eddie said...

total guesses-
#1 Steve Guttenberg
#2 No clue
#3 Selma Hayek
#4 Keri Russell

mandythegreat said...

Paz Vega has been married to her husband since 2002 though.

Praetorian said...

3# I like the Paz Vega guess. Her husband looks like a douche!

But could that be Zhang Ziyi maybe? She's big in China, and Memoirs of a geisha was a worldwide success. I just don't know where she lives or even if she has a boyfriend. :(

DNfromMN said...

mandy - that might be why she stays with him, though. Catholic and all that. The boyfriend in #3 sounds like an abusive bastard though.

#2 - who would be a married socialite?

#1 - ass. I wanted to say Tony Danza, but he didn't do films.

I'm so bad at these lately.

juju said...

3 how about hinko kikushi(spelling?) from Babel

BrambleWitch said...

#1, Burt Reynolds?

Sweater said...

I was thinking William Shatner for #1 because of TJ Hooker for some reason, but Star Trek was..early 70's, wasn't it?

Has Ivana Trump remarried?

For foriegn Like water for chocolate and Big fat greek wedding came to mind.

Man I suck at the guessing stuff:(

Whomever #1 is though, he's a tool.

juju said...

babel wasnt a blockbuster though

Inger said...

#2 - married socialite = Posh
B list actress/model = Milla Jovovich

Dunno, these were the first who came to mind but somehow I cannot picture them in bed together....

Inger said...

Great guess, juju. I would say Babel was indeed a blockbuster.

NQ said...

Man, if it weren't for the fact that Franke Potente and Tom Tywker broke up, I'd say it was them, as it would totally fit (she is A+ list in Germany, and did The Bourne Identity, but then fizzled in her US acting career). Though maybe she has a new boyfriend...?

Paz Vega is a good guess, but Spanglish was not a summer blockbuster - it was released in the winter as an Oscar contender and flopped at the box office.

NQ said...

Err, scratch "summer" from my statement there, but nonetheless: Spanglish wasn't a blockbuster, and neither was Babel. Babel was a limited release film, and despite the Oscar kudos, did not reach a large audience, in terms of box office. I think we should be looking at the big vehicles by Universal, 20th Century Fox, WB, etc. Eva Green in Casino Royale came to mind, but she's done several American films, so I don't think she counts as Hollywood C-list.

(sorry for two comments in a row)

juju said...

franke potente had done other movies in the us before bourne, but not as big.

She was in storytelling

Janele said...

#4 - Selma Hayek?

Inger said...

Franka Potente is a really strong woman and would never allow a guy to be like that on her.

Amy said...

Oh good guess, Janele!

captivagrl said...

1. richard dreyfuss?

Amarjit said...

I call Audrey Tautou on #3.

dani said...

#4 Isla Fisher maybe?? Although I don't know who would want to be with Borat *gag* she popped into mind first

Pamela said...

I wouldn't call Posh a socialite. She is a singer.

muccimooch333 said...

Look at the Random Photos - and the comment that EL write for James Franco. I think it is pretty clear that #1 is James Franco.

Yes Is A World said...

#2: married socialite - tinsley mortimer

Janele said...

muccimooch333 said...

Although I agree James Franco is prolly a dick, he wasn't famous for TV and Film back in the 70's and early 80's.

Kristen S. said...

James FRranco was born in 1978.

Craig said...

#3) Ziyi Zhang from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon--a true international blockbuster. She is HUGE in China and after that did some American movies including Memoirs of a Geisha, but now, where is she???

#4) Hayek is a great guess--especially as there are rumors the daddy also impregnated Linda Evangelista so he is clearly into models and actresses.

bflogurl said...

1) Robin Williams? Travolta??
2) ?
3) ?
4) Salma Hayek or Milla Jovovich

d said...

#3) I definitely thought of a Chinese actress as well. My first idea was Memoirs of a Geisha, which was probably a blockbuster, but the actresses are Chinese speaking Japanese. That would eliminate the "first language" clue.

But Ziyi Zhang was also in Crouching Tiger, and I don't think she is married. So I think that is a great guess.

captivagrl said...

#2. "married socialite who everyone knows" kathy hilton

theflock07 said...

I like the Ziyi Zhang guess for #3 as well. She's not married and was reportedly dating the much older film director Zhang Yimou.

Cosmic said...

#3 is Ziyi Zhang

surfer said...

dn - I was going to say Tinsley Mortimer for #2, but yesisaworld beat me to it!

I was also thinking Salma Hayek for #4

No clue about the others.

selenakyle said...

I thought Danza immediately for #1, too. No idea why, though.
Zhang Ziyi is also a good guess for #3.
Wish I knew about #2...I love the juicy, sexy, scandalous ones!

elle said...

What about Marion Cotillard for #3?

laura said...

Woody Harrelson and his oxygen bar

Majik said...

#1. I sooooo wanna say the Hoff--but he did 80s & 90s. I like the Burt Reynolds guess.
2. Kathy Hilton?
3. Ziyi
4. Salma Hayak

Judi said...

#1 - This happened in NYC, but it could be any actor over the age of 50. We need more clues.
#2 - Milla's got a new baby. Not her. I don't know.
#3 - Ziyi's a good guess though I don't know if there's any news out there about her personal life, boyfriend or not, etc. Certainly not Audrey T.
#4 - Salma's a great guess. I think it's her, too. Shame. Anyway, if he dumped her, he might not support with his presence but would have to financially.

Angela said...

Audrey Tautou is a great guess. She made a few movies in England but her only part in a real American movie was "The Da Vinci Code".

Marion Cotillard was featured in "A Good Year" (as Russell Crowe's love interest) and in "Big Fish" (as Billy Crudup's wife), so it would dismiss her.

nothingsacred said...

I first thought Chevy Chase for #1.
i don't know why.

Gail said...

1 - Dan Aykroyd.

captivagrl said...

1. timothy hutton?

lwall7 said...

Matt Dillon for #1?

white lorelei said...

Ooooh ... I'm liking Chevy Chase for #1.

Interesting.

Moonmaid said...

Not Matt Dillon - he's from NY and was extremely gracious the two times I met him in public, and I definitely did not make a big deal over him. He likes to travel fairly anonymously, seems to me.

I'd guess some stupid over-the-hill dickhead.

hoosiermom said...

I don't usually comment - I'm just a lurker - but I couldn't help commenting on this item. I just don't think #4 would be Salma Hayek! She is one STRONG woman! She's another mogul in the making.

The wording of the BI rather implies that this person might be looking for or expecting support. I thought that was one of the most notable things about Salma's baby with French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault: She doesn't want or need his money or support. She was just ready for a baby and had found a compatible partner!

someone said...

3-Zhang Ziyi for sure
4-Isla Fisher

Majik said...

Seriously...all you people guessing Isla Fisher for #4...stop.

She was born in Oman to SCOTTISH parents. They speak ENGLISH in Scotland, so English would be her first language, wouldn't it? They moved to AUSTRALIA when she was 9 months old. They also speak English in Australia, the last time I checked.

Pay attention.

Laura said...

Majik-
No. 4 isnt the foreign language one, its the pregnant soon to be deserted one.
Maybe you should pay attention

Majik said...

My bad...you're right Laura. I should pay attention.

a la Emily Latelle....

Never miiind.....

captivagrl said...

#4. naomi watts/liev schreiber

captivagrl said...

#1.i'm sticking with Timothy Hutton. he won his oscar in 1980 at age 20.( before that did tv movies) then he did some good films and has worked steady but no big blockbusters recently. he is never in the news. he owns a bar in NY. a young woman probably would not recognize him. (gossip: remember this is the guy that dumped angelina jolie 10 years ago! she was so heartbroken she started dating women and doing heroin. will never discuss the relationship with anyone)

Molly said...

Majik whats that they say about karma?

Internet Marketing Badger said...

Was Tom Selleck in New York Superbowl weekend? He did some films that did well in the early 80's and was a huge A list TV star coming out the late 70's early 80's period.

bflogurl said...

Selleck had that gig on Friends for a while... I still think he is recognizable, no?? If not,t hat is a *great* guess!

Laura said...

Tom Selleck is in a bunch of movies now, known as the Jesse Stone series. Thats my Blockbuster education for you. I like the Tim Hutton guess cuz I have no idea what he looks like or who is his besides the name from the Angelina connection

Much love, Majik :P

Brandelyn said...

Hi all! This is my first attempt to guess at BIs, so here goes:

1) what about Lee Majors?
2) Tinsley Mortimer.
3) I agree with Zhiyi Zhang.
4) I have no idea.

I am really bad with th A/B/C list thing.

RagDoll said...

#1 I LIKE the Lee Majors guess!

#2 Tinsley w/Rebecca Romijn as the model/actress? Who's the dude?

#3 Bai Ling (LMAO!!) Was "The Crow" even a blockbuster ;) ??

#4 J.Lo? Marc Anthony has a reputation for cheating, and in the last scandal, one of his mistresses, a waitress from FL sued him for paternity, right?

captivagrl said...

Lee Majors was an A-list tv star in the 70s but is not a B-lister now.

lisbeth said...

#4--i definitely think it's salma. ent uses the term "THE support," which i think he means as support in raising the baby, NOT financial. i'm sure that's all sewn up anyway, as he is mega-rich, and she's a new mogul in her own right.
salma WAS at a now-or-never age for having a bio child, and that couple has struck me as not so attached anyway. salma is and will be fine.

#3--my first thought was bai ling, because her only chance for an american movie was "Red Corner" with Richard Gere back in 1997 (?). (she only got the part because the most famous Chinese actress of the late 20th century, the AMAZING Gong Li, couldn't learn english in time).
of course, bai doesn't fit because she goes EVERYWHERE, and half-naked.

by the way, Gong Li was director Zhang Yimou's discovery/ ingenue/ mistress, she was the biggest star in China, and after they broke up, he found Ziyi Zhang (who looks like a younger version of Gong Li).

i don't think #3 could be Ziyi Zhang because ent says AMERICAN movie, and her big roles were all Chinese.
"Crouching Tiger" was not american. and somebody already mentioned that in "memoirs" she was playing the wrong ethnic group. i think ent would distinguish between her LANGUAGE getting her the role, instead of the fact that americans can't tell chinese people from japanese.

i don't want to believe it could be audrey tautou, but i never read nor saw "The da Vinci Code." was it imperative her character be French?

i think Chevy Chase is an excellent guess for the jackass of #1, if he is in NY. he is so well-known as a self-important fuck/head. as well as his famous meltdowns on his talk show when it began to fail. he displayed behavior then that showed he cannot handle being less than popular.

sorry this is so long.
sorry so long.

Marina Ortiz said...

2. Nicole Ritchie and Mila Jovovich
4. JLo and Marc Anthony

adrian said...

thank you twisty but can you add a cooment of "just kidding"? that will get me disqualified for abuse.
thanks!
adrian

adrian said...

thanks so much Twisty!! I don't want some disgruntled individual red-flagging me!!! I appreciate it!

Twisted Sister said...

Whoops! I haven't looked at the comments here since Friday, so I'm glad I finally looked a short time ago. I'm sorry! I hope nobody complains.

Yay! You just went down another number.

CarolMR said...

Timothy Hutton owns a bar in NYC, but I don't know if it's a sports bar.

Marie said...

1. Chevy Chase
2. Tinsley Mortimer & Milla J?
3. ?
4. I really hope it isn't Salma, poor thing.

Flashy_Shades said...

i'm pretty sure the bar he's referring to is the espn zone. its the only bar in the neighborhood where you'd have to pay for a table. i'll look and see if i can find any 70s-80s actors in their pictures from superbowl sunday.

Marnie said...

Audrey Tatou for #3
