Today's Blind Items - Jackass

This one kind of blew me away because this B+ film actor in a famous family is not generally known for being rude or a jackass. Maybe he was just having a bad day. We have a parking lot in front of a grocery store. there are several cars backed up in one of the lanes in the parking lot. The cars are all waiting for a van with handicapped tags to try and fit into a handicapped space. They took the angle wrong and are doing the back up and turn, back up and turn until they can get in the space.

Our actor is about two cars back in this line and just will not lay off the horn. Holding it down for 5-10 seconds a time and yelling out his window also. Well the van is finally parked, and as the cars begin to stream by, our actor opens the passenger window and yells at the man who is just now emerging from the van. Our actor then finds a spot, and on his way to the front door of the store catches up with the man who is walking as slow as he was driving and lays into him again. Our actor says he is going to call the DMV and that the man should not have a license and blah blah blah.

Two women come over to the man and help him to the store which causes our actor to back off and go about his business. His business was buying a shopping cart full of wine and booze.

I always say this when the blind is about a man from a famous acting family, but.........

a Baldwin, perhaps?

kris_r said...

I hope you reveal this one cuz this guy's a jackhole....

captivagrl said...

alec baldwin. usually rude to fans?no. daughter, yes. and a big boozer lately, thus the bloat.

DNfromMN said...

I hope it's not Robert Downey, Jr.

captivagrl said...

or, ben affleck.

p m said...

How about david arquette? He's gotta be pretty pissed off about all the action his wife gets while he's home alone.

captivagrl said...

or, joaquin phoenix.(that would def blow me away)

Twisted Sister said...

The blind says the actor is not known to be rude, so maybe he was just having a bad day. I think that pretty much rules out Baldwin.

canroadrunner said...

Alan Alda

captivagrl said...

yeah, and i wouldn't describe baldwin as a B+ film actor.

DBF said...

Joaquin is who I thought of. He is definitely a boozer and though he is not known to be mean he might be a nasty drunk. I hope it's not him but Ent should tell us who the jerk is.

Patricia said...

Sadly this smells like Joaquin

Twisted Sister said...

Canroadrunner, I'm not sure Alda is a B+ film actor. I don't think he is.

Twisted Sister said...

Joaquin is a good guess.

Bob said...

Kiefer Sutherland

Twisted Sister said...

Is Kiefer usually nice to fans? I thought he was rumored to be rude. Anyone know?

jax said...

Sorkin?

bryguy211 said...

John Cusack

jax said...

TS my coworker met him in LA and said he was really nice.
bought everyone drinks and drank coffee himself. about 6 months ago.

Twisted Sister said...

Awwww....that's nice. I like hearing stories like that. Could be him then.

Reese said...

Either Luke or Owen Wilson.

eileen said...

Would Kiefer be considered B+ film actor these days?

Judi said...

Josh Brolin?

Judi said...

But, yeah, Enty. Totally, please, reveal this one.

CarolMR said...

Alan Alda is in the Random Photos - hmmm...

I remember a reporter asking him years ago to comment on the Woody Allen/Mia Farrow controversy and he replied with, "***k off!" He looked really angry and I was surprised at his reaction.

Sylvia said...

I had read somewhere that Luke Wilson as an A-HOLE and a diva.

Twisted Sister said...

But if a person is known to be an asshole, they have to be ruled out according to the blind.

RagDoll said...

Oh, you know who I think this is?

Jason Schwartzman (from Shopgirl, I[heart] Huckabee's)

...He's an under-the-radar Coppola(Mom is Talia Shire), and he's generally known for being endearingly geeky (and he's always been self-effacingly nice in person, to fans of his band) Plus, he's young enough to have the kind of parties that need a booze-stock-up.

Awww, this one would actually suck, I hope it was just a bad day...or that I'm wrong....

Miss X said...

I'm with the Joaquin Phoenix guess. I no longer like him, if this is true.

I could totally see John Cusack doing this, so it probably isn't him.

Miss X said...

RagDoll said...

Wait--Is he B+??? OH, damn the friggen A,B,C!! I always get tripped up by that!

RagDoll said...

Nicolas Cage is another Coppola, he's moe in B+ territory...is he usually not a jerk?

Twisted Sister said...

Ragdoll, I don't think he's B+.

Leah said...

You all know I have to weigh in on this one...

My son is disabled, and I hate the jerks who take handicapped spaces or have no patience with people getting in and out of a handicapped space. Scum like this guy have no idea how hard it is to just get out of the house, much less run an errand to the grocery store when you or someone you are caring for is disabled.

Please reveal this Jackass ENT. I will make his life miserable until he writes a fat check to groups like Eddie's Club to make amends for his bad behavior.

Judi said...

Alda's not so far from needing handicapped tags himself. Doubt this is him.
Yelling at an old man, and two women got him to back off? What a man! Tell me who this is so I can go find him and embarrass the H out of him.

Judi said...

Okay, Leah and I are on the same wavelength here.

morgen dorffer said...

Doubt it's Joaq. From personal experience and hearing from many others he is definitely an asshole and I wouldn't be surprised by this. I'm going with David Arquette or John Cusack even though that breaks my heart.

Twisted Sister said...

Leah, couldn't you just let the air out of their tires when you see them park there? I see more young women doing this than anyone else.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

ENT - Please reveal this at some point. This d!ckhead does not deserve the protection of this being blind.

eileen said...

Casey Affleck for some variety...

Burgundy said...

John Cusack is a good guess. Tons of movies, from an acting family, and nothing about him would suggest that he's the type to do something like this. And with his stalker situation, maybe he was indeed "having a bad day." Doesn't excuse him (if it's Cusack) but it would be more understandable.

Leah said...

I've never let the air out, but I have blocked the space with my car or van and confronted the inconsiderate jerk when they've come out of the store.

If it's a vehicle with a business logo, I've taken pictures of the offending vehicle in the space, and sent them out to my parents' network.

I have no problem shaming someone who has so little concern for others.

josie77 said...

I'm loving The Food Network theme this week! More Alton!! It looks to me like Rachel had some work done...

Zero said...

I couldn't imagine anyone doing something like this (let alone someone who would be recognized by everyone).

I was thinking Nicholas Cage as I was reading, but he always comes off like an asshole, so he wouldn't be too surprising.

Cat said...

Jake Gyllenhaal

liveunderarock said...

Letting the air out of someone's tires isn't cool. I am much more in favor of Leah's approach of confronting the offender. Before doing such things you should see the person and make sure they are not truly not handicapped.
My Mom is on a walker and has a handicapped sign to hang from the mirror when I carry her shopping. I have been known to forget the sign. It would be sad and a terrible inconvenience for her to hobble back to a car with flat tires.
There are many people who need handicapped parking but are too embarrassed to go and get a handicapped tag or sign, especially older people.

Twisted Sister said...

Letting the air out of someone's tires isn't cool.


Please don't tell me you took that seriously.

I guess you did.

Sssiiiiiiiiggggggghhhhh........

captivagrl said...

i usually slash the tires and bust the windows.

captivagrl said...

please don't tell me you took that seriously. LOL TWIS!!!

Twisted Sister said...

LMAO @Cap!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!!



Eh, I'm guessing that's not cool either?

bippy said...

could be casey affleck -- would go with the blind the other day about the "good one" in an acting family who's hooked on something (can't remember what). i thought that blind was c affleck and this one would work, too.

PollyPureBred said...

Jake G. is a good guess!

Allie said...

Please don't be David Arquette.

And why would anyone slash tires? That is so juvenile, not to mention, criminal.

Taking a shit on the hood is the way to go.

Twisted Sister said...

LOL - can't we do all of the above?

captivagrl said...

allie - i have my whole family shit in a bag. after i bust out the windows i set the bag on fire and toss it in. we've only done it twice. none of us are cool, obviously.

Ellebee said...

Wow... what a m-f'n jerk. I have RA and there are times when I use my placard. I don't use it just to get a closer parking spot, only when I really have a bad day. I figure I can use the exercise. I am also a very slow mover.

I would have cried or gotten very angry. My husband would have punched him...ok he wouldn't have really punched him, but the guy would have wished he had after my husband got finished with him. (Former big city cop with a clear sense of right/wrong and celebrity is bs to him...except maybe if that celeb is a 300 pound parolee who just finished off a rock, then he might think twice)

Have a good day guys...I really enjoy everyone's comments.

Allie said...

Captivagirl,

Not cool? I beg to differ! I think y'all are the shit!!! ;)

kellysirkus said...

any Sheen? Phoenix? Baldwin? Wilson? O'Neill? Arquette?

Crayzay said...

Keifer....he's hollywood royalty, B+ b/c no movies - just TV, and even tho went to jail for DUI - still drinkie drinkie on a farrrrr too regular basis. He frequents my friends establishment in SilverLake far too often and is not drinking diet coke. At least not straight.

kat_angel_98 said...

Although I could believe that it was Joaquin Phoenix due to rumors of his erratic, sometimes a-hole demeanor, I don't really think it would be so surprising as Ent stated, simply for that fact. Because the behavior was so unexpected, I am completely stumped. I doubt it's anyone who has been rumored to act with such crass and disrespect.

By the way, I truly do enjoy reading all of the regulars' posts every day. I don't post often because I usually have no clue until I read your guesses (and hilarious quips). Y'all are a trip! Thanks for keeping it classy!

Amber said...

I'm just glad it's not Jason Schwartzman :)

Reveal this one Ent!

The Bad Seed said...

I'll go with Jake on this one. Esp if he had to buy a shitload of wine to get liquored up for his next photo op I mean date with Greesy Reesey.

Rare Avis said...

I am guessing Alexis Arquette. Just because. The image of her chasing someone down in lucite heels in the Ralph's parking lot makes me giggle.

Brenda22 said...

Recap of the guesses:
1. Alec Baldwin
2. Casey Affleck
3. Keifer Sutterland
4. David Arquette
5. Joaquin Phoenix
6. John Cusack
7. Luke wilson

Did I miss anyone?

sauvage said...

Something stuck with me: The phrase "IN a famous family", not "FROM a famous family". So what about for example Kurt Russell? The Russell/Hawn/Hudson-family is famous and he's a part of it plus he's not exactly known for rude behaviour nor drinking as far as I know.

I'd still love Brad Pitt for it, harhar, but he's way too A-list, I guess.

Vicki said...

Good thinking, sauvage. I would be shocked if it were him.

blonde ambition said...

what about dennis or randy quaid

Jamie's Girl said...

No one is BList who has been nominated for an Academy Award. Joaquin is definitely A-List, and so is Mark Wahlberg. I first thought of David Arquette.

captivagrl said...

brenda - Ben Affleck is missing on your list(and in general). i don't think he is A list now.

lainiekazan said...

Maybe it's because I saw a "Two and a Half Men" poster on the bus in front of me this morning, but I'm wondering if it's one of the Sheen/Estevez kids other than Charlie?

On the loser copping the handicapped space? I would suggest the old Beverly HIlls Cop maneuver and stick a banana in his car's tail pipe.

mngddess said...

I don't know - maybe it's where I am from - but if I saw anybody verbally abusing a senior citizen like that I would have gotten out of my car and laid into him so badly he would be hearing my voice in his head for a week!

Oh - and I'd notify TMZ and ask them to hound him for a few months or so..

What an ass...

liveunderarock said...

Twisty,
It's not that I thought you would do that. But when you post as much as you do, you have to think about the effect your words have, not just on the regulars but the trolls and the handicapped reading this, also. This is a serious subject not the usual Hollywood gossip.
It does touch me personally. My best friend died last year of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Because her handicap was in her lungs and not visible to others she refused to get a handicap tag and use a handicap parking space. She was afraid of people doing just the things you and Cap. were talking about to her. She could barely walk six feet without stopping to rest. Yet, she struggled across huge parking lots rather chance some jackass doing something to her car or cursing her because she didn't fit their idea of handicapped. Many times she would be too tired to make it in the store and I would go get the car and pick her up.
I thought you would probably feel bad if some handicapped person read what you wrote and were afraid to use a handicapped parking space or if some troll took your words to heart and damaged someone's car.
But, I am glad I could provide entertainment for you and Captivagrl and I hope you two never have a loved one who needs a handicapped parking space so you can continue to joke about it.

sky_writer said...

This is definitely Jeff Bridges. "This one blew me away"--Bridges starred in the film "Blown Away." Has a reputation as an exceptionally nice guy, so a temper display would be shocking; see link.

Eddie said...

I'll be different and say Ben Stiller.

someone said...

I think that sometimes people have moments where they act in an unacceptable manner, and it does not mean that the person is evil.
