Today's Blind Items

This B list television actor who is the star of his own drama series on a network has a very odd sexual habit. It seems that he doesn't actually have sex. Oh, he hits on women and brings them home or more often to a hotel since he is married, but he never actually has sex with him. He acts like he is going to have sex with them, but when push comes to shove, he tells each and every one of his conquests that he prefers watching. So, he has them pleasure themselves while he watches. If they balk, or when they finish, he always says he has an early call and sends them on his way. Never does anything but watches.

Hugh Laurie and his attempt at staying "faithful", perhaps?

Amazing how men will rationalize what's cheating and what's not.

plot said...

Sounds like a personal contract he has with the missus. He can look, but don't touch.

staci said...

If we're right and it's actually his attempt at being faithful, I *guess* good on him for having some type of control that most his peers do not.

The Bill Clinton method of extramarital activity??

ms_wonderland said...

Hugh Laurie would be A list TV - he's won stuff for House. As his family is still in London, any women could be taken back to his house, rather than a hotel.

Not many clues to go on.

kellysirkus said...

LOL @ califblondy - we CA blondies definitely think alike!!!

I was actually going to say
"The Bill Clinton Fidelity Test"

wenx said...

Michael Chiklis?

Marisa said...

what about wentworth miller from prisonbreak?...everyone knows he's gay, but he is very much in the closet.

lainiekazan said...

His wife probably agreed that he could limit his "watching" to porn -- so by his reasoning this is a live show.

touched said...

not much in the way of clues...I did immediately think of Tony Shaloub from Monk though. Kinda sorta like his character and the series just started on a major network but has been on a ?minor? network for a few years.

Marisa said...

Or Dennis Leary? But Ent would have said comedian to right? ugh.

Ed said...

Johnny Lee Miller?

Angela said...

Chauncey Gardiner?

RagDoll said...

The comments about the "Bill Clinton" method of preserving fidelity made me wonder....


How about Fred Thompson from Law & Order?

His recent (failed) run for President would certainly be a reason to institute a "look but don't touch" policy.....

Laura said...

i thought of tony shaloub too, but it says network which usually means ABC,NBC,CBS,FOX
and monk is more of a dramedy
the only network guy who has his OWN show, i would say house......i need more ideas

Flora said...

Network means broadcast, not basic cable? Or does it also include basic cable? Basic cable has more intriguing options.


My first (reluctant) thought was Hugh Laurie since his wife & kids still live in England and he only stays in LA when he's filming "House"- but I like the man too much to think of him that way. He's way too intelligent and has too much integrity [to not seal the deal]. [kidding!]

2nd thought- Kevin McKidd from Journeyman. Though Journeyman is likely canceled, even if NBC hasn't announced it yet and the blind seems to indicate it's a current show.

3rd- Damian Lewis, Life. I think he's too nice to cheat- at all.

4th thought- why am I only thinking of British actors with TV shows in the states?

5th thought- Dominic Purcell, Prison Break. Wait, he was born in England. Gotta get off this Brit kick...

6th thought- totally American this time. Mark Harmon, NCIS. It's surely not him, but it would fit and he's not British and not one of my most favorite TV people, so that's why I'm going with Mark Harmon.

Pinky said...

Network is ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, the CW, and MyNetwork. I believe Univision is also network.

kellysirkus said...

ragdoll - I don't think Fred Thompson could stay awake long enough to watch all the way to the Happy Ending.

RagDoll said...

HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! Kellysirkus, I need a new keyboard to replace the one I just spewed Diet Pepsi all over....you livened up my dull afternoon, fo' sho' :D
yeah, Fred also isn't the "Star" of his own network drama" after I re-read the thing. Law and Order is more of an "ensemble cast' kinda thing.

I guess it is Hugh Laurie, but that makes me kinda sad...

gossipmonger said...

james woods.

gossipmonger said...

yes, i realize james woods is also (mostly) film, but....i dont like the hugh laurie guess.

janice said...

This screams Hugh Laurie

Alice.W said...

Hugh Laurie doesn't make sense to me. As his family are home in England then he would either calling a hotel home in LA or be able to take them home if he has one there - hope that makes sense.

I really don't think he's tacky. There's NEVER been any rumours over here about him in all the years he's been in the public eye.

Flora said...

"...brings them home or more often to a hotel since he is married."

Wait...so he does bring the women home sometimes? But often goes to hotels because he's married...but if there's no wife living at home, why bother with a hotel?

Had to check in with the first Mr. Angelina Jolie since "Eli Stone" is about the only other eponymous male tv show besides "House" on right now. But JLM is not currently married. "Dexter" also is a male lead show named after the character, and since it is being aired on CBS right now, it might still count. However, Michael C. Hall is getting divorced and is banging Jennifer Carpenter. Let's see, that leaves James Woods and "Shark"- aw, but he's been divorced for a long time. Gee, guys, I just can't have it be Hugh Laurie!

Okay- switching gears again. "Smallville" is basically a show about Clark Kent/Superman. Tom Welling is married but his wife lives in LA while he's filming in Vancouver.

How about Gary Sinise? He's basically a well regarded B lister, married, and stars on CSI: NY. (Does anyone actually watch that show?) Regardless, it still counts, right?!?

gossipmonger said...

lol that whole "screams" thing has gotten really popular around these parts.....
unless it's in caps, i don't see any of these blind items SCREAMING anything or anyone, thats why we are here to GUESS the answer.

not a celebutante said...

If it didn't specify "star," I would say this blind item has Justin Chambers of Grey's written all over it....

gossipmonger said...

skeet ulrich?

gossipmonger said...

ok i take back the skeet ulrich, it seems he divorced in '05...
but i just dont like hugh laurie for this!

d said...

The way this blind is worded, this actor and wife live in the same city. Otherwise why would he need to bring them to a hotel because he was married. Which would rule out Hugh Laurie, even if you didn't consider him A list.

I loove the Kevin McKidd guess, anyone know where his wife lives? I think truthfully that Journeyman has been canceled, but I hope not.

Also, Flora: I thought that Michael C. Hall was rumored to be getting divorced because he was spending too much time with his *boyfriend*?!? I would be thrilled to hear that he likes girls at least some of the time...

Flora said...

Vincent D'Onofrio- Law & Order: Criminal Intent? Married. Recently had another child. B listish because of the fact that he always makes his own opportunities when there is no work. No bunny or buffalo reference makes me doubt the blind's him, but absolutely, positively, I cannot let it be Hugh Laurie.

Tony Shalhoub is probably too nice of a guy, and kinda geeky. Though Monk is basic cable, NBC is airing now. He's married to Amy Adams? Brooke Adams? Someone named Adams? Oh, and "Monk" is the show name and the lead character, so "his own". Again, probably farfetched, but I cannot let it be Hugh Laurie. No, no, no!

gossipmonger said...

kevin mckidd is b list? cuz ive never even heard of him..... & his filmography isnt that memorable to me either.....

Flora said...

d- Michael C. Hall has been dating Jennifer Carpenter (his character's sister)- ewwww- for months now. They are infrequently photographed by the paps doing boyfriend-girlfriend stuff. Plus, his first wife was a total babe. So, despite having played a gay man on Six Feet Under and having a penchant for singing Broadway, I seem to be one of only a handful of people who believe he's straight. Besides, have you seen him shirtless in Dexter? That guy is buff and it would be such a waste. Like a Rupert Everett type of waste...

gossipmonger said...

vincent d'onofrio is JUST WEIRD ENOUGH to pull this off. he really seems like the type to like to ONLY watch.
very creepy......

wtf said...

Isn't Tom Welling getting divorced?

Flora said...

Kevin McKidd is bigger in England for sure.

Huh. I just realized that Tommy and Sick Boy from 'Trainspotting' both had their own TV shows in the states this year playing Americans with warped senses of reality. "Eli Stone" and "Journeyman". Weird. Now what's up with Robert Carlyle and Ewan McGregor? Oh wait, Robert Carlyle works nonstop on British stuff and Ewan is probably motorcycling around the world again. Shucks.

Flora said...

wtf- Yes, I think he is getting divorced. Found a reference to that after I posted.

---I bet NO ONE KNOWS I'm really bored at work right now.---
:)

gossipmonger said...

ent doesnt expect us to know what all is huge in england, therefore, kevin mckidd is prob not our guy.
is tom welling still b-list? i couldve sworn smallville was cancelled years ago. did the show go thru a hiccup with the whole dismantling of the wb? & then ups? wait....what was the station called? UPN.
whatev, lol.

anyway, if smallville is still as popular as it was when i knew it existed, tom welling is a good guess.

just because he may be divorcing, doesnt make him not married...but then again he wouldnt really care what his wife would think would he? unless he wants to make SURE it is not HIS fault they are divorcing....anyway im rambling.

plot said...

Vincent D'noff sure seems like the type, might excuse it as some sort of study or experiment.

But I think this is a West Coast BI, and refuse to consider Hugh Laurie at all...just because.

Marisa said...

flora- dont talk about my Kevin McKidd like that or I will be forced to TYPE IN ALL CAPS

McKidd doesn't just watch. not in my fantasy

Marisa said...

BTW- Kevin McKidd starred in HBO's Rome. AMAZING show. Sucks it was only on for like 2 seasons...

Journeyman was canelled- also sucks.

It's not McKidd. I refuse to believe that.

Also, ENT- You should remind these ladies who Kevin McKidd is with a little FFF action on Friday.

Alice.W said...

d - my point exactly re- Hugh.

Gossipmonger - very petty pointing out the caps, especially as it's a first time for me to use them. In my mind I wasn't screaming I was stressing the never, there is no underline tool. Thanks for making my life even brighter.

Cathy said...

I doubt this is Vincent D'Onofrio. ENT says the guy "brings them home." VDO's wife, son, and new baby would be surprised at that. Only someone with a wife who either travels or lives somewhere else could fit. Hugh's sounding better and better.

the camel said...

See what throws me off is the whole "star of his own drama series." Because, I'm feeling everyone's go to guess (usually), McDreamy himself. No? Bad choice? Matthew Fox? Prison Break dude? Dennis Leary? Miss Jay from Top Model?

trashtalker said...

If the guy is the star yet he's B list, then the show hasn't been on the air for very long. Some other suggestions:
Kyle Chandler
Donald Sutherland
Scott Foley
David Boreanaz

K. Marie Criddle said...

Not Kyle Chandler. Perish the thought. It makes my heart hurt to even consider it.

plot said...

OH marisa, great idea!

How about James Purefoy, too? Maybe a whole FFF dedicated to the men of Rome. (slurp!) I miss them all...in fighting skirts.

Mia said...

kevin mckidd is slowly climbing the alphabet list in the states, especially after Rome- in which he was very well recieved and the main charachter on hbo...

journeyman was no good but i think he'll have many more chances. let's hope that new movie he's coming out with co-starring patrick dempsey with the recycled juliaroberts/bestfriendswedding premise isn't too much of a stinker.

mngddess said...

God, I loved Rome...damn them for not going with Season 3..

Hugh Laurie is A list, so he's OUT.. also, the blind says he takes them to a hotel rather than his house. Hugh has an apartment, and also the blind suggests the wife is nearby, and Hugh's isn't.

I am glad to see so many Hugh Laurie fans on the blog!!

janetagain said...

I take it that when it says "takes them to his house", the wife is probably not home, and when he goes to the hotel, then the wife is at home.

janetagain said...

unless "home" may be referencing "house".

nothingsacred said...

james woods isn't married
notorious for likin the youngins.

~crazypeanut~ said...

Good Morning All, :)

~~OT Alert~~

Could someone pleasepleaseplease help me with my avatar? I have tried everything I know to get that blasted thingy to appear.

WTF am I doing wrong? :D

~~On Topic~~

PS...Bill Paxton maybe? Must look him up.

~crazypeanut~ said...

^^...Scratch Bill, I dont think he fits this..."star of his own drama series"

Not sure if Big Love would be considered 'his' show or not.

d said...

Flora: who is getting divorced, Kevin McKidd? You mean there is hope for he and I after all? Ha.

If we had him for FFF I would die happy. Or Michael C. Hall. Yes, I've seen him with his shirt off and was very happy.

Flora said...

D- Oh, no, that was Tom Welling.

Though, in my little neck of the universe, Kev is all yours!

Oh- and I'll third whoever said dig that boy out for FFF. Heck yeah!

And no, it can't be him because the blind does say "Hit" show and "Journeyman" certainly wasn't. It was on the verge of being cult, but that doesn't count. Incidentally it still hasn't been "Canceled" by NBC- just not reupped. They'll probably put the nails in that coffin when they do the Fall upfronts.

I'd be down with the Bill Paxton guess, but I though "network" excluded HBO?

And those who are saying "home" means "House"- banish the thought! Banish it!

Katie said...

I kinda doubt its Hugh Laurie since he rents apartments when hes filming, if you live in your own apartment why bother bringing someone to a hotel?
But really I never watch TV so I couldn't take a guess!

cinnarose said...

Kelsey Grammer. He's on Back To You on Fox with the woman that played the mom on Everybody Loves Raymond. Just a guess, nothing to back it up with.

Lisa said...

Rob Morrow of Numb3rs?

d said...

Rob Morrow seems like a good guess.

I would say Kelsey Grammer is A list as far as TV goes.

Ms. said...

Journeyman was officially cancelled a while ago. There was debate about whether the network would air the final two episodes (they did).

josie77 said...

How about the guy from Bones? David B?

sarah said...

Give me a break. It's Billy Petersen all over the place. CSI. He's a great person, by the way.

Matthew Fox is my guess. He'd have 2 homes, right? LA and Hawaii. Also, a friend of mine did a stage show with him and said he loved to not only brag about his penis but that he'd show it in a second. She said it was huge. Sigh. My life is so sad.
