Blind Item Reveals

June 2, 2008


You try coming to work like this actor and lets see how long you keep your job, let alone get lots and lots of ass kissing.

A list film actor. Yes, A-list, no ifs ands or buts. Well, if he had stuck with what made him famous he probably wouldn't have made it to A-list but he adapted. Latest film. Not a great film. First day. Table reading. Our actor showed up for it and was so drunk he could barely stand. No one who was setting everything up would come near him because you could smell him a mile away. He kept stumbling and falling everywhere. Affectionate to everyone. Lots of hugs and kisses. Finally managed to get the actor in a seat. He then started mumbling incoherently and the crews were trying to figure out what he was saying. Then he takes a package out of his jacket pocket...it was a mushed up burrito. He held it up to one of the crew and said "look....what is this?" So she looks and tells him it's a burrito...with chicken...he couldn't comprehend this AT ALL. She went and got him a soda and a sandwich. She was trying to get him into some kind of shape for the reading. It wasn't looking good. Oh, did I mention that he rode his motorcycle to the place? Yeah...good...right? Well, everyone LOVED him...said it was one of his best readings ever...he was brilliant. On and one it went, even though no one had been able to understand one word that came out of his mouth.

Keanu Reeves

I Dont see keanu as A list. i was thinking jack nicholson or someone like him

operaghost said...

Ah. Poor Keanu. I hope he gets himself into better shape somehow.

Quintessential Southerner said...

damn ragdoll, you were right. :(

i am a keanu stans for real.

Production Girl said...

awwww....I tend to feel sorry for him because of his history.

I hope he gets some help soon.

d said...

omg I am so happy to see this one revealed!!!

ms_wonderland said...

Keanu will always be A list because of the Matrix films - opening a film on his own.

I was sure this was Sean Penn.

Alexajetset said...

No way Keanu is an A-list actor. Maybe during the couple of years that the Matrix helped to revitalize his career, but now I'd call him B list with A list name recognition. I think we need some sort of key that maps almost every actor to the A-D lists.

Quintessential Southerner said...

btw, i believe ole boy suffers from clinical depression. he does need professional help. damn. :(

plot said...

Keanu is A-list because of The Matrix movies. He carried a franchise which automatically makes him A list.

digawina said...

Well, based on Ent's definition of A list, he would be. One of the things that makes you A list is to have a franchise and he does with the Matrix. What threw me off on this one was that everyone said he was brilliant. Really? Yikes. I mean, it appears they were pandering since they didn't understand him but it's Keanu Reeves. Even for Keanu Reeves they have to suck up like that? He's not Nicholson.

I too am glad this was one of the reveals. This is definitely one of the better ones.

Lil said...

Someone in the industry should write an article, book, something that sets guidelines for who is considered A-D list and the criteria for each ranking. Kinda like movie ratings. Then we could all say "according to so & so, this person is A list".

Poor Ted Theodore Logan. So non, non-heinous.

Lu79 said...

aww. :( I hope he gets help.

jw12 said...

Well, still no Affleck but I am so happy this one was revealed!!

Alexajetset said...

Yeah, I get that Ent thinks opening a successful film franchise makes someone permanently A-list. I think the designations can get a little stale for some people, and Keanu is not someone who gets to keep A-list status forever in my book.

cinnarose said...

OK, this one truly shocked me, I also thought it was Clooney. My poor boss is going to be so sad, she loves Keanu.

RagDoll said...

Yah, it was obvious to me, having seen him in full blown "fuck-up" mode. This guy is such a mess, mess, mess. I KNEW that those two blinds reeked of him (pun intended).

P.S. Quintessential Southerner: I was NOT actually the original guesser of Keanu. Brendalove got it before me, and someone else got it before her (uh...I think?)

equinox said...

If he wasn't an actor he'd be a homeless man. He looks terrible half the time and out of it.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

I wish I could remember who the commenter was, she and I were proclaiming it Keanu - it was us against the world!

RagDoll said...

....I believed in you Brendalove!

bionic bunny! said...

knew it wasn't affleck!

adrian said...

bionic--just saw the trailer for bolt--pretty awesome on the big screen.

CarolMR said...

I have no respect for Keanu. He was so drunk yet drove his motorcycle to the reading. Hope he doesn't hurt someone someday.

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

At least he's a nice drunk.

TheGoldenSockPuppet said...

Where is Ent's definitions for A, B lists, etc?

Anyone?

Hana said...

Uh...who (professionally) is going to dog on Keanu when his main man is Erwin Stoff....and anyone that gets in Stoff's way, won't be working in Hollywood for long.
That's why Keanu is so..."brilliant". He leeches onto the people that help him with the jobs! Ever notice how his leading ladies are the same ones over & over? Charlize Theron, Sandra Bullock and Rachel Weise...

pomme said...

keanu,stop alcohol!

becki626 said...

Reading must have been for 'Street Kings' in which he squaffed airplane variety sized vodka throughout. He was just doing that
in depth character immersion method acting thing. Way to go Keanu.You really looked drunk during the whole movie.
