Four For Friday - In One Big Blind

This one hurts because I would have never thought of this B list film actress as a home wrecker. She has always been a favorite. B list film actress sounds so generic now doesn't it? How about we make (#1) gorgeous and aging, but not old. How about someone who is taken seriously as an actress but is definitely not shy about showing off her body. OK, so on the set of her new film she and her female co-star (#2)who was once a B list actress and is now closer to C, but is well known and made her reputation from basically one television show and one serious boyfriend, were bonding and talking smack about the other cast members. At some point they both started talking about our B-/C+ actor (#3) who is doing this film but is known much more for two great television roles on two great television shows. OK, they were both good shows, but I only liked one. Turns out that #3 had hit on both #1 and #2 and #2 was discussing how she would never do anything with him because #3 has a long term girlfriend (#4) who used to be A list and just kind of wanders from role to role now. #2 was looking to #1 for agreement that it was wrong to sleep with #3, and #1 confessed that she had been sleeping with #3 since the third day of filming and that #3 was going to leave #4 for #1. #2 and #1 haven't spoken to each other since.

#1 sounds a lot like Catherine Keener, but havent looked yet to see what her new film might be, or who's in it.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

I am counting on you guys to solve this one... awesome blind!

Amber said...

That is a lot to take in o_O

I'll let you gals and guys figure it out, I suck at these.

Plebian said...

Could #2 be Calista Flockhart?

unicorn jones said...

let's make this easier:

#1 - female, B list, gorgeous and aging, but not old. is a serious actress but also shows her cupcake

#2 - female, former B list, now closer to C list, known for 1 television show and 1 serious boyfriend

#3 - male, B-/C+, known for 2 great roles on 2 great tv shows, is dating #4

#4 - female, used to be A list and now just wanders from role to role, is dating #3


now, for the guesses!

Okay looked at the Catherine Keener new movie: It's called Nailed..........stars with Jessica Biel, James Brolin, Jake Guyllenhal, Kirstey Alley, Tracey Morgan, Malinda Williams, James Marsden, and a bunch more. Catherine doesn't strike me as gorgeous, but that's just me.

I was thinking Catherine Keener for #1 and Jessica Biel for #2 - from the movie Nailed. But can't figure out the rest...do probably not them. Maybe Tracy Morgan for #3 (SNL and 30 Rock), but he doesn't have a girlfriend that I know of.

Jesse D said...

o_O Indeed?! I have a "Ted C" headache after that one!

Laura said...

Jessica Biel would be good for 2, serious bf being Justin, tv role being Seventh Heaven

But I dont see the rest of them fitting

ali said...

I thought of Jake, too, but he doesn't fit the TV part.

Robert said...

Movie, Nailed...

#1 Keener
#2 Biel or Bile :-) - Known for 7th Heaven and dating JT
#3 - I was thinking of James Marsden - known for Second Noah and Ally McBeal, but his wife was never A list, Brolin and his wife might work
#4 - Maybe Diane Lane

Robert said...

OHHH...my bad...I was thinking it was JOSH Brolin

Eimear said...

Not perfect but:

Movie = PS I Love You

#1 Gina Gershon
-- older, still hot, not shy about showing skin, respected as an actress (Bound)
#2 Lisa Kudrow
-- B/C list. TV show = Friends. Serious boyfriend doesn't fit
#3 Jeffrey Dean Morgan
-- who at the time of the movie was in two shows (Greys Anatomy, Supernatural)
#4 Mary Louis Parker
-- I know I know, not exactly former A list. But she and JDM did split in 2007, so it might fit.

DNfromMN said...

I think Ent should go for initials (ala zx, wd, etc.) instead of #s. #s too hard to keep track of.

Thanks unicorn for the breakdown. Also "shows her cupcake" made me lol.

I was thinking #1 was Sharon Stone. But her costars in movies currently filming are Jim Broadbent (in one movie) and Val Kilmer (in another). Even she isn't that desperate.

Jewels said...

Wow!
That one made my head hurt a little, thanks for the break down U.J.

Still can't brain enough to figure this one out.

Angela said...

Gorgeous and aging but not old. Taken seriously as an actress but not shy about showing off her body?

Catherine Keener only had a moderate amount of nudity in her roles (Living In Oblivision, Box of Moonlight, The Real Blonde and The 40 Year-Old-Virgin, where it's mostly a nipple slip), so it might not be her.

I don't know anything about their current projects but this kind of description would fit either Marisa Tomei (last seen in "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead" in great shape) or Julianne Moore.

The Onion A.V. Club had a very funny feature named "We'll Still Respect You In The Morning: 22 Esteemed Actors And Actresses Unafraid To Appear Nude". Here's the actresses list:

Halle Berry (in a relationship)
Julianne Moore (married)
Jennifer Jason Leigh (in a relationship)
Maria Bello
Diane Lane (married)
Helen Mirren (old)
Jennifer Connelly (in a relationship)
Maggie Gyllenhaal (young)
Kate Winslet (in a relationship)
Marisa Tomei
Charlotte Rampling (old)
Angelina Jolie (in a relationship, might be heavily pregnant)
Helena Bonham Carter (in a relationship)
Samantha Morton (not aging)
Naomi Watts (in a relationship)

noel said...

Hi guys-

This shit makes me laugh... I mean seriously, why would you want to be with someone (#3) who is already cheating on someone else (#4), you know is going to do the dirty on you (or at least try to with #2), and suffer from the humiliation of being outed as a homewrecker (#1) at the same time...

(Unless #3 is of Snoop's proportions only then could I understand- just kidding!!!)

Dumb ass BiiiatcH!!

RANT OVER!!

Ernestine said...

Oooooh. I dunno. I think Keener's pretty gorgeous, personally -- always have, even when she's glammed down. She's got such striking features, and she's TOTALLY respected. Maybe she's not afraid to show her body in the way that her good pal Aniston isn't afraid to show off hers -- formfitting tops, sexy jeans, etc. It doesn't mean she has to show her ta-tas in each film.

She also just split from Dermot Mulroney, and Jessica Biel (who is known for one television role and dating Timberlake, basically) MIGHT be a tad sensitive towards those who flagrantly sleep with attached men -- since HER man is prolly sleeping around on her constantly.

STILL, though. I like this woman a LOT -- and since she is friends with Jennifer A., you'd think she wouldn't sleep with a married dude.

That Onion list does help, but a lot of those actresses are probably A list, according to Ent's standards.

nikki said...

catherine keener is married remember?

sharon stone?

Andy said...

Problem with Biel being #2 is this sounds like an actress on the downward slope, and Biel isn't. She's got a lot going on and has had some decent roles.

Gossip Monger said...

please don't tell me it is lauren graham- i don't know why but her name just popped in my head as I read this-

curious_cailyn said...

OK, I've done a little RESEARCH... So what do you guys think of this scenario?

Movie: "Baby on Board (now filming) starring #1, #2, and #3.

#1: Heather Graham: B-list actress, gorgeous, "aging" (in Ent's world, anyway) She's obviously also a 'fave' b/c he's posted her photos repeatedly.

#2: Lara Flynn Boyle: Once B-list, now closer to C. Known for one TV show ("The Practice") and one serious boyfriend (Jack Nicholson)

#3: John Corbett: B-/C+ actor known for 2 TV roles ("Northern Exposure", "Sex & the City"); His long-term girlfriend is....

#4: Bo Derek: Former A-list actress (from her "10" days), who wanders from role to role.

Also, Bio & John live together (in Seattle), which would make a Heather a "home wrecker."

??????????

nikki said...

possibly

John Corbett

he was on northern exposure and sex and the city

he's been living with his girlfriend bo derek for years...former a list?

dutch said...

1. Jennifer Connely

2. Jennifer Aniston

3. Ben Affleck

4. Jennifer Garner

curious_cailyn said...

Is there an echo in here? ;-)

dutch said...

ugh, nevermind. Ben doesn't fit the clues at all. sigh.

Ernestine said...

You know what, Cailyn? I just reread that blind, placed ALL actors in all four slots, and they ALL fit. Daaaamn! Good job.

Heather's never gonna win an Oscar, but she IS gorgeous -- and at least forty.

And I can kinda see Lara Flynn Boyle (personally, I liked her role on Twin Peaks the best) being totally bitchy towards Heather in a Veronica/Betty way, anyhow.

And Corbett is still relatively young and Bo Derek is, like, 67.

The End.

beyondseattle said...

good job curious cailyn, i think you hit it. the only thing suprising is boyle doesnt seem the innocent type to me but i guess that never stops people from judging. i live in seattle and have seen bo derek and she is stunning but in an older women kinda way.

Ernestine said...

Ernestine said...

seattle -- I totally believe Bo's stunning. Emmylou Harris is around the same age, and she's one of the most astonishingly pretty people I've ever seen from afar. And, I mean, I was just slackjawed over Catherine Deneuve an hour or so ago, and don't get me started on Helen Mirren or Julie Christie!

But that sort of age difference has GOTTA be noticeable in a relationship -- especially one where the dude's still chock full of gametes and some sort of troglodytesque need to spread them or whatever, and his lady friend is well past menopause. And if you're a flirtatious douchebag to beGIN with, Heather Graham must be pretty hard to turn down.

Maybe Lara hates Heather because Jack cheated on her and she resents Other Women. Didn't he go off galavanting sometimes and dipping his wick in less-skinny ladies?

Shit, he probably slept with Heather back in the day!

curious_cailyn said...

Thanks, Ernestine & Beyondseattle! :)

But you know what's WEIRD? ...Bo Derek is only 4-1/2 years older than John Corbett! (Who knew??) Her B-day is Nov. 20, 1956, and his is May 9, 1961. ...A whopping 4-1/2 years, and people act like he's been dating his GRANNY!!

I guess that's one of the drawbacks to 'hitting it big' so young. Bo SEEMS old b/c she's been around so long, and John didn't really come on the scene until his 30s.

Last thing: I've heard (recently) that John can be a total pri**, so it may not be entirely out of character for him to trade Bo in for a younger model...

Ms. said...

Catherine Keener and her hubby Dermot broke up (a year ago?). Besides, it can't be her. It just can't. I love her and will bitch-slap anyone else who posts that it might be her. She is a goddess.

RagDoll said...

Curious Cailyn, you totally ate your Wheaties today!!! Great deduction!! I'm with that guess.

Brenda22 said...

Only problem with the Heather, Lara guess is that Lara is now also married. Wouldn't Ent mention something about that? Wouldn't that be her reason for not hooking up with #3 instead of his relationship with #4?

Ernestine said...

Maybe Enty left Lara's marriage out because he didn't want to give us too many clues? I had no idea she was married, anyway. I guess that's the thing about being a C-lister -- no one knows/cares about such things.

I feel like such an a-hole for assuming Bo was so much older! I guess I just thought she was closer to Raquel Welch in age than, say, Heather Locklear. I might be thinking of another relationship with a bigass age discrepancy. Ralph Fiennes and that lady? Barbara Hershey and that dude?

What I DO know: John Corbett = Big Choad.

ernestine
I agree about the age gap. I don't know why I assumed there was a big age gap. I guess to me she seemed older than 51 because she was married to a guy 30 years older than her. And I also thought JC was in his 30s. He definitely doesn't look 47.

Amber said...

gossipmonger

I don't think Lauren Graham would do that.. hope not!

Laura said...

omg great job caitlin! i think we have a winner

gossip said...

Plus Lauren would be eliminated from this since the last movie she made was The Dream of the Romans and the only actors/actresses of name in that were Jeff Daniels, Kat Dennings, Olivia Thirlby and Lou Taylor Pucci (the last three don't fit the BI since Jeff has been married and doesn't have a long-term girlfriend) :)

I'm with what Caitlin put about Heather and co.

laura said...

I really don't think Bo Derek was ever considered to be A list. She was nominated for one golden globe, but also a bunch of razzies.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Curious Cailyn, you're a genius.

And Corbett totally has a rep as a douchebag.

Jamie's Girl said...

Catherine Keener has never been gorgeous, but boy is she aging. She looks closer to 60 than 40.

Jamie's Girl said...

Caitlyn, excellent job, especially since they are all three on the movie together.

frou frou said...

cailyn! that's amazing!

i think bo derek was A list back in the day like how posh spice is considered A list to some today... bo hung out with a lot of important people, and was invited to the best parties. and she'll always be the perfect 10. so her A listiness came from her social status more from her acting abilities. i'm guessing.

Alex said...

I agree with cailyn, especially since Heather Graham and Lara Flynn Boyle have known each other for at least two decades, having worked on Twin Peaks together at the beginning of both of their careers. Dunno if they would have kept in touch regularly, so I could certainly see them as two old costars sitting around their new set catching up.

Sara said...

Wow. Great work. I'm seriously impressed!

eileen said...

Caitlyn, that was amazing.

adrian said...

Cailyn, I would never have put that all together! Thanks for an educated
and well-thought out response.

selenakyle said...

I had company last night so I'm getting to the party way late...

Julianne Moore came to mind for #1 immediately. Gorgeous, aging but not old, shows the bod.

The BI doesn't say whether or not #1 is married or attached or what. Could mean homewrecking two homes, Her own as well as that of #3 & #4.

Reading y'all's guesses now...

selenakyle said...

Well, gotta go with Cailyn's scenario.

And here are my two fave words for today, thanks to y'all:

Troglodytesque

and

Choad

!!!!!!!

Brandy said...

I think Jennifer Anniston is the answer to one of these.

Ernestine said...

Brandy -- nah. Aniston is probably A- or B+, and Enty hates her, doesn't he? He would NOT call her gorgeous. I know that much. And she's definitely not C-List, either. EVERYone knows who Aniston is. Household name status and such.

Not EVERY answer to EVERY blind is an Aniston, a Garner, a Lopez, or some other Jennifer. Or an effing HILTON or a SIMPSON, for that matter. I'm so freaking tired of those people, anyhow. I don't CARE what they secretly do. LET them get strangled during sex. See if I give a shit!

And, I mean, while I'm here and ranting: I, uh, like Jennifer Garner as a person. Jeeez. I know she's VERY milquetoast, but she doesn't wear fur or vote Republican or anything egregious like that. I just want her OUT of these blinds. Just let her take her adorable-ass kid to the park and let me go on thinking that she and Ben Affleck have a happy marriage involving hot cocoa and board games. Thanks.

Anyway.

Brandy, Cailyn totally got it. It's already nailed down. Everything fits; the guesses are perfect. Done, done, and more done.

d said...

Bo Derek was definitely A list back in the day. I think you guys have probably hit on the correct group of people - I have one small nit pick though.

Is Heather Graham taken seriously as an actress? I would believe her as someone who is sleeping with an attached co-star, though.

I don't have a better suggestion, so I'm sure this group is the winner. You guys are good!

brainypirate said...

But would people be surprised if Heather Graham had an affair with a married man?

And wouldn't Corbett be best known for one TV show (N. Exposure) and one film (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)?

Kelli said...

Corbett was Aidan from Sex in the City! Can't forget that one...

Tea Lady said...

I thin Cailyn nailed it. Anyone seen John hanging out with Bo lately....?
