Four For Friday

#1 - Former A lister but he hasn't been one in awhile. I guess technically he would be about a C lister now but with some A list name recognition. Always films. He was trying to make a career comeback. His agent and manager have a brand new television show lined up for him, but he hasn't done anything about it, returned any calls or met with the people he needs to because he is newly in love and can't bear to be apart from his girlfriend. Manager and agent are ready to let him go unless he gets his act together.

#2 #3 and #4 - This is really interesting. This foreign born actress is definitely C list. Attractive and young, but C list. Apparently she was also the reason that this now married B+ film actor who got his start in television broke up with his then fiancee who is an A list singer. The C list actress and our B+ actor had a thing for about five minutes while they were making a film together, but she was always keeping in touch after. Although she wanted more, our actor didn't. Unfortunately for him, his A list singer, didn't believe him or his protestations, and eventually it led to the break up.

#1: Jim Carrey?

Emobacca said...

1- Micky Rourke came to mind first but he is getting Oscar buzz for The Wrestler and Sin City may have made him relevant again. Does he need a career revival at this point?

Mooshki said...

#1 Steven Seagal? Has only done straight-to-video lately. Sounds like the kind of flaky thing he'd do.

stiffkittens said...

I thought Carrey too, but he's done TV (main role).

vamp said...

for the second blind...now married B+ actor who started in tv could be Ryan Reynolds...he was on a nick show Fifteen...A list singer fiancee could be Alanis...

not a famous adrian said...

Ryan Reynolds for the B+ actor?

jlb said...

1. Christian Slater? Don't know if he's done TV.

No idea on the last

Ice Angel said...

Ryan also was on Two Girls a Guy and a Pizza Place!

Mooshki said...

If it's Ryan, Melissa George for the actress?

nunaurbiz said...

I thought Jim Carrey was a good guess, but he and Jenny have been together for at least two years, so I don't think that's "newly in love." Also, he did TV early on ("In Living Color")

Otherwise, I'd be on board with that, sorry.

Molly said...

if it's ryan, who would the foreign born c list actress be?

Kat said...

2.Ryan Reynolds
Alanis Morrisette
Melissa George

littlemanwhatnow said...

def. ryan and alanis....don't know who the c is...melissa george is a goodd guess but isn't she married

Molly said...

x - i don't think scarlett is part of the blind, if it is ryan r.

palealebrew10 said...

I don't know if it means anything, but elizabeth banks is in the random photos, and she was Ryan Reynold's love interest in Definitely, Maybe.

Molly said...

no, that doesn't work out, does it?

ryan and alanis dated from 2004 to 2006.

melissa george has been married since 2000.

Kate said...

#2, #3 and #4 - Definitely Ryan Reynolds, Alanis Morisette...I'm torn on whether Vanessa Lengies is C list. She's foreign-born, hot, and was probably 19 when they were making 'Waiting...'

Marisa said...

How about Mel Gibson for #1? Or would Ent have said he was married?

Molly said...

i never think of someone born in canada as being 'foreign born'.

Deborah said...

#2, #3, and #4 - Ryan R., Alanis Morisette, and what about Emmanuelle Chriqui. She's young (1977), foreign born (Canada), and in 2006 was #7 in Maxim's Hot 100 list. Chriqui was in Waiting. Timing seems pretty good?

Ice Angel said...

Paula Garces for the C-list actress from Harold and Kumar. She was born in Columbia.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Could #1 be Val Kilmer? I know nothing of his TV status or love life though, other than Joanne Walley divorced him long ago.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Christian Slater has done TV, even back in the 80s as a kid. He was also on My Name is Earl and has a show of his own now.

Impertinent Vixen said...

Ed said...

What about Josh hartnett for number 1?


Im liking the alanis, Ryan reynolds guess but 2 questions 1) Is Alanis considered an A list singer? and 2 who would be the foreign born actress?

Molly said...

deborah, yea, that timing works.

ed - see deborah's post above at 2:37.

CC said...

Jim Carrey or Mel Gibson for #1? Are you peeps high? There's no way on God's green earth either of them would do a TV show at this point...NO WAY, NO HOW, NO IFS, ANDS, OR BUTS!

Also, Jim Carrey is still A-list. Mel may also be, too, though I'll admit that's a harder sell...

pomme said...

#1:kevin Costner?
#3,4:ryan r.and alanis?but it's a old blind item!

Molly said...

cc - they aren't 'c list' either.

pomme, i don't think kevin costner is c list either.


if they're c list, then john goodman must be z list.

Punkimeowzer said...

@Jlb - #1 I thought Christian Slater too but his TV series is about to air and according to the BI this actor hasn't done anything about it, etc. With that said, I am pondering another guess.

Julie said...

haha ryan reynolds and melissa george?
aww i like her, sad shes just c-list.

Lauren said...

For the second blind, what about Isla Fisher as the foreign born actress. She was born in Muscat, Oman and was raised in Australia. they starred in Def. Maybe together and she is pretty well know for her role in Wedding Crashers. Who knows maybe she cheated on Borat.

DNfromMN said...

nice job on the ryan reynolds thing, guys. I'm so bad at these. :)

For #1: Costner's still married, isn't he? I don't think Mickey Rourke was ever A-List. Likewise for Kilmer.

Town Bike said...

Neither Isla Fisher or Melissa George are young, both are over 30 and I think Melissa is pushing 35. That's not young for Hollywood.

Ernestine said...

I agree with the Ryan Reynolds/Alanis/Sarah George guess. I also just wanted to say that Alanis is DEFINITELY A-List. You can love or hate her, but she's basically been famous for decades, if you account for her YCDToT days.

Also, I defy you to find a female between the ages of 25 to 32 who doesn't know all the words to "You Oughta Know." And Jagged Little Pill won a BUNCH of Grammys that year, not to mention some Junos (wassup, Canada?), so she's definitely got the award-winning thing going on. She fits Enty's credentials.

Also, I agree that Jim Carrey and Kevin Costner are, uh, pretty bad guesses for the first one. Kevin is married (not like he doesn't cheat, but married men typically have mistresses -- not girlfriends) and Jim is NOT newly in love. He's been deeply in love for years and years with Jenny McCarthy. They're basically married, but not.

This is someone tappin' a BRAND NEW piece of ass. They're in the first months of a new relationship. Ha ha. Remember THAT?

Anyway, nobody's guesses thus far really jump out at me, but I can't personally come up with anyone that sounds viable to me, either.

junglekitten said...

How about Josh Duhmel, Fergie and..........................????? for # 2,3 and 4?????????? Just my first thought!! Oh wait ........they aren't married! Are they???? IDK!! Lemme think!!!Isn't the Alannis and Ryan guess too old??

junglekitten said...

Did Ryan R. do any TV????

mollygirl99 said...

wooooah. blind item: hiv+ singer.... toni braxton.

la.flambelle said...

Long time lurker; first time poster.

My guess for #1: Keanu Reeves

poster_child said...

Junglekitten, yes RR got his start on "Two guys, a girl & a pizza place".

What would be really interesting is if it was Ryan Reynolds, Alanis Morissette & Scarlett Chorvat (from Buying the Cow (2002)). Scarlett Chorvat has been in quite a few things but not super recognizable and was born in Slovakia. Gorgeous.

And wouldn't it be ironic (dontcha think?) if he had a thing with another Scarlett?

Jamie's Girl said...

This is a boring BI if this is Ryan Reynolds and Alanis. Two boring, self-absorbed people. Scarlett fits right in.

Jillian S. said...

Ryan Reynolds and Alanis are both "foreign born." why not just say up front "Everyone in this blind is foreign born?

RagDoll said...

La Flambelle: Most plausible guess yet. No TV on his IMDB. Plus, he's not currently married (I don't think) and I don't remember the last time I heard anything about him seeing someone, so it totally fits. The *only* thing is the "C list" status. Whatever else I may say about that guy, I don't think he's C-list. He's a B/B+ on his worst day...and even I begrudgingly skew him closer to A...

Ernestine: WOW, I almost forgot about her on "You Cant Do That...." but I'm in the "Jagged Little Pill" heyday age group, and I think you make a good call, there...

mfbinc said...

just curious, what would cause a post to be removed?

la.flambelle said...

More for Keanu Reeves (ragdoll, thanks for the support): Ent sez A-list name recognition, but C-lister maybe.

What, pray-tell, has that man done lately (besides some drunk-ass or drug-addled reading, according to a recent - i.e. earlier this summer - blind)? Dude has not been working, and quite frankly, the younger set - the ones who watch most TV and see most movies - probably don't give him a good much, unless it's throw-back Matrix or Bill and Ted fame. If my guess is off, I'd tip it to the small-screen: I can't see Keanu on TV. I mean really. You have to talk on TV. It ain't all scissor-kicks and anguished close-ups.

only said...

Ryan Renolds got married two weeks ago to Scarlett Johanson so I'm not sure this fits the blind

Kay Xander said...

Jon Voight for #1? He was a one-time A-lister (Midnight Cowboy, the Champ, Coming Home), still has some A list name recognition because of his daughter, but his career has been nowheresville for years. I have no idea about his love life.

linnea said...

Mollygirl: Of COURSE! Toni Braxton as the HIV singer... That would explain a lot. Are you sure? Does anyone remember when the earlier blinds came out?

Beth said...

Keanu is an interesting guess, but is he C list?

He does have a new gf. There were pics of them romping in the surf. It was someone recognizable too. I can't seem to find the pics of them anywhere. (It was fairly recent too -- not the topless pics from June.)

Totally agree about Ryan Reynolds (Two Guys & a Girl on ABC) and Alanis, who is definitely A list. Don't know about the girl though. Melissa George is married, so she probably wouldn't want more. Both Chriqui and Chorvat seem like reasonable guesses.

Beth said...

It was China Chow.

Laura said...

ONLY-thats exactly why it fits the blind. "this now married b+ film actor..."
I'm on board with the Alanis/Ryan/Chriqui train.

Where are you guys getting this Toni Braxton info?

Nature Girl said...

wow....I'm back for Saturday morning smut with my coffee
...and is it me, or was Toni B in the Random Photos in a white shirt yesterday (Friday)?
And, did Enty take her out?

Molly said...

mfbinc, people delete their own posts. sometimes something posts twice by mistake or people change their minds about what they posted so they click on the trash can at the bottom of their post to delete it.

i'm not getting the toni braxton comments. where are they coming from? she filed bankruptcy, then she started working on broadway and now she's on dwts. maybe i missed a post on it on cdan?

shoe addict said...

keanu reeves is definitely A List.
Enty admitted as much about three mos ago when he revealed the lovable A list drunk guy that rides the motorcycle. In A list definitions, he admits that franchise actors are automatically A list. Even if he drops that would put him at B. Like Someone said earlier John Goodman is C. James Spader is former A list now C etc Keanu Reeves is A-.

And I have news for you....Keanu probably doesn't work cuz he doesn't have to. He made a ton of money on the Matrix films and he spends nothing. HAve you seen him...ever? Runover boots, salvation army clothes. I cdon't think I have ever seen him in a suit...EVER, lol.
That (matrix) money will last him a lifetime....So he damn sure isn't gonna go to work on a TV show. Perish the thought...(eye roll) he's a movie star.

as far as the second blind being old news, it is probably because RR just married SJ and people have been talking about how short of a time they dated as well as his engagment to AM...this is about old news but is relavent for RR getting married recently.

ps where did the Toni Braxton thing come from? is there a clue somewhere i missed?

Miss X said...

What about Corey Haim for #1? Or someone of his calliber?

I just don't see it being Keanu. He may be B+, but def not C.

Jamie's Girl said...

Keanu is A, not B or C. He has the Matrix Films. There is no way he is a B, certainly not in money or stardom. He has also said that the has so much money that he will never spend it, so he's not too hurried about doing anything with it. I just think he loves his work. He's one of the luckier ones!

pomme said...

wait one minute:if Keanu is A list and Ryan is B+,the blind item about a druggie married actor and his black eyed girlfriend really isn't Christian Bale because with 2 franchise movie,at least he's A list(and his wife was on the set)!

Adrienne Saia said...

As for the 2nd blind, I'm going Kylie Minogue and that actor she was engaged to forever. There were infidelity rumors there.

RagDoll said...

MFBINC:

I've only ever seen them get deleted by the same person who wrote them. I've never personally had one taken away by someone else.

Beth said...

Except Olivier Martinez isn't married and is rumored to be back together with Kylie...

Mooshki said...

As far as I know, the only time Enty has ever deleted a comment was when a certain troll used to go off on long obscene off-topic rants.

linnea said...

vamp-

mollygirl mentioned the toni braxton thing... I just thought it sounded like it might fit, but on the other hand Janet Jackson has been "mysteriously ill" for a couple of concerts and wasnt the description of the singer that she was scandalous, or something like that? We need to find that blind!

linnea said...

these were the first...
12/26/07
"#1 During a required physical last week this singer indicated she is HIV+. If you follow the partners and they were not safe, this could lead to some incredible revelations during the next year."

12/27/07
"#1 You know that required physical from yesterday? Reason for the physical? Abortion. Father? Unknown."

01/30/08
"#1 Our HIV+ singer was asked by her local health department who she had sex with so they could be notified. There are some rumors that this list is up for sale."

pomme said...

1# bruce willis? idon't know what he do since Die Hard 4.

And it's an horrible rumor about this singer!and i don't know why she couldn't work because she's hiv+.Many hiv+ people live and work like as every one every day.

loco said...

Toni Braxton has been laying low lately, but it's not like we're all well aware of a long list of her potential partners... I don't think it's her.

ElsieFire said...

Keanu is with Parker Posey. Rumour recently that they are pregnant. And, FWIW, no way he's anything less than A list.

Bruce Willis, seriously? The logic is the same: to follow the franchise trail...Bruce is A will always be A.

I am thinking someone like Luke Wilson or his ilk. Made a big splash, was in a few big movies then disappeared. Last movie for Mr Wilson was the Jessica Simpson debacle wasn't it?

Mooshki said...

Elsie, that oughta be an interesting couple - she's an alkie and he's a mess. :)

Luke is still working steadily (despite the booze rumors), it's just that his only film this year was an indie, so he hasn't been in the press much.

brooklyn said...

#2 Definitely sounds like Ryan Reynolds. I know this isn't the foreign-born actress Enty is referring to, but heard from a good source that RR had an affair with Amy Smart while filming a movie with her & engaged to Alanis. The dude is a dog through and through. Alanis is better off without him.

ElsieFire said...

Mooshki, hadn't heard PP was a boozer..if they are pregnant, how F'd up is that poor kid gonna be? ;>

I still say Luke fits the parameters of the blind (was A, now C) how do you go from opening a movie (Old School) to being Jugs Simpson's sidekick, seriously? If that's not a serious slide, I don't know what is...

mysmaus said...

For #1, Orlando Bloom?
