Today's Blind Items

I didn't even know that these two people knew each other, but just goes to show you that anything is possible. #1 is an A list actor and director, although the director part would probably be closer to B list. Award winning for sure though in both. #1 has a greenhouse on his property and was showing it off to #2. We'll get back to him later. Apparently #1 grows some of the finest pot in the world right there in the back of his house. Nothing else in the greenhouse, just pot. Loves it more than his wife and kid(s), and #2 was suitably impressed and so decided to give it a shot. Oh, not pot. Nope. #2 is an idiot. In and out of rehab and a sad excuse for a C list television actor who has some B list name recognition from the last hit show he was on. #2 figured what the hell and decided to indulge in his drug of choice. Bought a shed at Home Depot, installed it in his backyard and decided he was going to cook his own meth. Yep. Problem is, the idiot didn't know how to make it. Got all the ingredients and just started throwing them together. Too bad he didn't blow himself up, but he has some friends who actually have some brains and made him stop. He had invited them over to watch him cook it all, and they wisely shut him down and threw all the stuff in the trash.

ali said...

I was thinking George Clooney for #1, until the wife and kid(s) part.

Ted said...

How about Sean Penn for #1. I can easily see Spicoli blazing up after a hard day on some true home-grown Yerba Buena.

ann said...

mel gibson? denzel washington?? or how about kevin costner for #1? is he considered A-list? don't a few oscars secure a spot on the A-list... he was the first that came to mind.

don't know about the knucklehead that is #2.

Bad Fish said...

ha, if sean penn is on pot then i shudder to think what that hot head would be like without it

bippy said...

well, #2 is totally john ventimiglia (artie bucco from the sopranos) -- he's in random photos today and if you google his name and 'rehab' you'll come up with an arrest for dui.

so, i'm thinking that if ventimiglia lives on the east coast, #1 is east coast based. otherwise, i'd say affleck for #1.

yellow said...

#1 Sean Penn

#2 Stamos?

link88 said...

WOW, Ent, your inside info. is AMAZING!!

Ice Angel said...

Artie Bucco a meth addict??? NO WAY!!! But the blind does say a lot about "cooking." I find that very hard to believe. Sweet little Artie would never do something like that!

How about Tom Hanks smoking the hooch and someone younger. I don't think people in their 40's do a lot of meth-it's all the kids these days. People my age do coke, acid, shrooms, stuff like that.

Emobacca said...

Andy Dick for number 2?

Ice Angel said...

Bibby-I change my remark-not only was John Ventimiglia arrested for DUI, but also for coke possession. With all the cooking references and the photo below-I believe it.

I'm going with Tom Hanks.

jindi said...

not shootng down anyone but sean penn isn't a pothead - he's a cokehead.

a raging, sweaty, glazey eyed cokehead.

maybe maybe myabe johnny depp for #1? (he directed the brave)

bippy said...

ice angel, i know -- nice artie bucco! but sounds right to me.

#1 is hard though -- tom hanks sounds like a good guess, except what has he won for his directing? who else is both an actor and director who's won awards for both?

i'm stumped.

Ice Angel said...

Tom Hanks has won an Emmy for Band of Brothers

FreeThinker said...

For some reason I thought of Clint Eastwood for #1

jlb said...

I wonder if the A lister pot guy is the same one that had the "secret room" built onto his office so he could smoke all day (old blind).

I'll guess Tom Hanks for the Alister as well. The first person that came to mind for the meth head was that guy who went to rehab for a 'sleep disorder' - Justin Chambers maybe?

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

My first thought was Clint Eastwood for #1. So who is Clint "close" to besides Brangelina? Luke Perry might fit but the only way I can see these two knowing each other is if Luke actually supplied Clint with herb in the past.

I know that Clint and Luke is a weird stretch...I am very aware.

kellysirkus said...

Meth is so disgusting! It's got to be one of the douche bags that looks like crap in every photo (Gawd knows there are plenty of 'em)

emily said...

I could definitely see Tom Hanks lighting up the Mary Jane. I love this blind! If you're going to cook your own meth, at least look up the ingredients on the web. Geez.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Johnny Depp wouldn't love pot more than his family.

Would he?

Anyway, he's not married so.....
I think Dustin Hoffman is the pothead.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I said Dustin Hoffman because his photo below was in my line of vision. LOL

swede in edinburgh said...

1-Ben Affleck
2-Jesse Metcalf

jbeebs said...

emobacca-Love the Andy Dick guess for #2. That guy is an idiot!

ms_wonderland said...

I agree, the A lister is an older guy. How about Robert redford? Though I would have said A list for directing as well. Also Tim Robbins comes to mind.

Not Penn - A list for both IMO. Not Depp, no awards for directing, and his drug of choice these days is fine red wine. Two or three bottles a day at several hundred dollars each. Looking good on it too.

Impertinent Vixen said...

I agree with the Tim Robbins guess, but he isn't married to Susan Sarandon, so the "wife" but is odd. Although, they've been together so long, they might has well be married.

I am thinking someone older as well. I am wondering too about the use of the word "kid(s)" like not all the kids in the relationship belong to him. This would fit the Robbins guess.

More thinking...

Angela said...

Tom Hanks is a A+ list actor but a one time director. I wouldn't mention directing "That Thing You Do" as a clue to him. Eastwood isn't close to B list as a director: he got two best film Oscars.

Warren Beatty? Married, with kids, awarded as a director (Reds).

Jamie's Girl said...

Gael Garcia Bernal is in the credits and he does look like a doofus that would set himself on fire, especially if he is a meth addict.

Don't the BI answers have to be in the Random Photos someplace?

Jamie's Girl said...

I guess John V must be the doofus. But who is the A-List Actor/B-List Director?

Beatitude Sputnik said...

This is just a wild guess out of the blue but I'm gonna say Kevin Costner for #1. I dunno if he's even married or not, but he looks like someone that enjoys blazing up.

Marcy said...

#1 - not sure.
#2 - Matthew Perry

p m said...

Number 1 is obviously WOODY ALLEN!


"Loves it more than his wife and kid(s)" makes perfect sense now!

mouth.like.a.sailor said...

#1 is totally BEN AFFLECK...it's the first thing that came to mind especially because i ...literally... just got done watching Gone Baby Gone, which i am pretty sure he directed and produced. plus, how about all that info recently about him and jennifer garner not really being together and her havine the daughter all the time.

#2-no idea. i don't know anyone stupid enough to try to cook up their own meth..for christ's sake!

Ellebee said...

just some thoughts for the director/actor...jon favreau, kevin smith, costner, gibson, woody allen, spike jonez, spike lee...

don't know about c list guy, but not that bright is he???

zpup said...

Just a note for thought: pot, growing, as described here, takes daily care and loving attention. It's not something that someone could do if they travel and/or party a great deal. It is a time consuming activity to grow high quality happy plants. People who fly here and there collecting awards usually can't devote that kind of attention and time to healthy greenry.

mngddess said...

I like the Warren Beatty guess....

bippy said...

ok, so i still like john ventimiglia for #2 (silly meth-head), but i was curious about mngddess' warren beatty guess. so i googled a bit and found this aerial photo of warren beatty's house. i don't see a separate greenhouse, but there is a solarium, which could be used. check it:

http://virtualglobetrotting.com/map/39118/view/?service=1

also, he's apparently friends with justin timberlake (wtf?) and we all know he's a pothead. warren is *totally* jt's dealer! ;)

Stephen said...

For #2 the first name that popped into my head was Wilmer.

Jason said...

Ron Howard for #1? He's an award winning A-List director, def. B list actor.

lwall7 said...

For some reason my first thought for #1 was Billy Bob Thornton. I'm usually terrible at guessing these things, though. Love the Andy Dick guess!

ewansgirl said...

for #1: Ben Stiller

canadachick said...

i'm going Ben Affleck...first one to jump into my mind when i read it. Not sure on number 2 - wasn't there someone from Prison Break who was in rehab ?

Joanna said...

Ok, I don't really think this is #2 just because meth was the one drug that he wasn't arrested for possession of but here's throwing it out there: Gary Dourdan from CSI. Hasn't done anything else high profile and he got busted hardcore and was fired.

No idea for #1, but Mel Gibson was the first to pop into my head. Haha. He just seems crazy enough to have it.

chocoholic said...

Can people still buy all those ingredients? They took psudeophedrine off the market a year ago (thank god, an Rx of it gave my DH a stroke). I know people still make it so I guess there is a sub.

Anyway the way it's worded the character the guy played must have been a clown. (idiot ec)

I was thinking of Gorden Levitt from 3rd rock b/c he was in the pic's a short time ago but I do not want that to be true, plus I dont think he is c list.

It screams the character Ashton played in that 70's show, so maybe it is Wilmer since the rest of the cast seems to have distanced themselves from him. That can't be just for being a horndog with young actresses right? (I still blame him for ruining LL)

Katja said...

(that was Katja not Chocoholic posting, sorry I didn't sign in!)

Bebedog said...

What about that Jason guy from The Hills I think that has been arrested and in rehab for #2? Jason Wahler? I think that is the name. I have never watched The Hills, but I remember seeing his picture in the mags saying he was arrested. No clue on #1 though.

Judi said...

Jason Wahler's a great guess. In and out of rehab, sad excuse for a C-list actor, and stupid enough to do something like this. Him knowing ANY A-listers would be a surprise.

Joanna said...

katja - You can buy psuedophedrine still in the U.S. (thank the gods, otherwise I would have been dying when I was sick earlier this year) but it's HIGHLY regulated. My meth-ridden state (yay Iowa) requires presenting your license at a pharmacy and only allows you to buy one box at a time. I'm sure there's still ways to get massive amounts of it, it's just a lot harder now.

And that's your factoid for the day. Haha.

Toasters said...

Actually, Joanna, you can buy more than one box at a time in Iowa as long as the total amount of pseudoephedrine is less than 7,200 mg per 30 day period.

Now back to the topic: I'm thinking #2 is Andy Dick but I have nothing to say about #1 and I sincerely hope he's never caught. I'd hate to see him go to jail under mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines just for growing pot in his own house.

Lauren said...

#2 is totally Jesse Metcalf. He is the EPITOME of douche bag idiot!

I like Ben Affleck for #1, except that I wouldn't call his acting A-List or his directing B-List. If your film and your actors are nominated for Oscars, among other awards, and win some along the way, are you a B-List Director?

Both Spikes, Ron Howard & Woody Allen? No no and no. None are A-lIst actors or B-List directors.

Tom Hanks is the only one I can come up with who fits the bill. Award winning director yes, but not anything prestigious enough to call his directing A-List.

Mel is no longer an A-list actor
