Today's Blind Items

This B list film actor who has always done films is in the midst of quite the career comeback. However, on the set of his latest film he has reconnected with an old friend from the past. The old friend was his drug dealer who has always been known as the drug dealer to the stars. No, granted, being seen at dinner with the guy does not mean our actor is partaking again of drugs, but why is he even having dinner with him in the first place?

Mickey Rourke?
The comeback being that new movie "The Wrestler"

Ice Angel said...

Please don't say RDJ

shelly_bean said...

must be RDJ on Sherlock...sadness

MontanaMarriott said...

I thought about RDJ as well but was he the answer to the BI about the actor who had a one time binge and hopefully was not going down that path again?

Harriet Hellfire said...

I thought Mickey Rourke as well. RDJ sort of fits as well, except with Iron Man I think he might have gone from B to A again...

not a famous adrian said...

I don't think RDJ is B--he also did SNL, which would count as television.

Mooshki said...

I think RDJ is A- at least now. Mickey Rourke is a great guess. Except I didn't realize he'd ever stopped doing drugs. :)

Big City Girl said...

Dennis Quaid.

RDJ is A

Marisa said...

Mickey Rourke

shelly_bean said...

good points...those a/b/c classifications always get me!

Angela said...

Robert Downey Jr was in the cast of Ally McBeal for nearly a season.

Mickey Rourke isn't in the middle of a career comeback. He has just begun.

DNfromMN said...

adrian - SNL doesn't count as TV. SNL is more like an appearance on Letterman/Leno. I could be wrong, but when Enty talks about "always doing films" I think he means no multi-episode tv series.

And sadly, I'm thinking this is RDJ :(

farmgirl said...

RDJ was a castmember on SNL not just a guest host.
And as Angela said, he was a major player towards the end of Ally McBeal.

I'm liking Mickey Rourke for this one.

Denis said...

Just because no one has said it yet:

Affleck.

not a famous adrian said...

DNfromMN--RDJ was an SNL castmenber from 1985-1986. That has to count more than a guest appearance--he was on the whole season.

Melissa said...

I think the biggest clue is drug dealer to the stars. Was RDJ's dealer known as that?

jax said...

RDJ is pure A list kids.

Mickey is a great guess.

pomme said...

i don't know when i think 'comeback',it think RDJ but he's more B actor with franchise movie.
Only it's not the first blind item about drug comeback in his life(duggie actor and his girlfriend for ex)
So,Mickey Rourke is better because he was Sin City(lead actor).

Ice Angel said...

OK-first of all...thanks to many of you for talking me off the ledge on RDJ. I really do not want this to be him.

Mickey Rourke? This latest movie might put him up a couple of notches, but B list even? Isn't he more like C or D?

I do like the Dennis Quaid guess...a LOT!!!

touched said...

what about mark walberg?

Blondie said...

thanks angela, RDJ (my future husband) was on Ally, hence, not RDJ. thank god. don't really care who it is as long as it ISN'T him

srd4 said...

Hi Everyone! I recently stumbled onto this website, and let me just say that I absolutely LOVE IT! I must admit I am becoming quite addicted to all the juicy gossip and blind items. However, I do have one question and was hoping someone could fill me in - what's up with Ben Affleck? What is the story (or possibly stories) behind listing him as a blind item???

Ed said...

RDJ definetly. I dont think one movie bumps you to A list.

brendalove@gmail.com said...

srd4 - Ben is the answer to all the blinds.

RDJ won an Oscar did he not? A list.

califblondy said...

I've read several articles about Mickey's new film and the word "comeback" is mentioned alot. I think it's him, kids.

not a famous adrian said...

welcone srd4!
For a while, people were guessing Ben Affleck for any blind out there-- actor, director, writer, A list, B list, married, famous partner, involved in drinking, gambling, drugs--you name it, it was always Ben. So now we try to make him fit, no matter what.

Gayla said...

srd4 - it's a running joke, so long running that I can't even really remember where or when it started anymore. But the joke was that no matter what the blind item is, somehow a Ben Affleck guess always fits, so just for fun someone always throws his name into the ring.

George Clooney probably comes a close second to filling that running-joke role, but Ben is best b/c he also has a wife and a kid so he can fit no matter what the relationship status of the BI person is.

This blind? I honestly have no idea, but put me in with the group that just really wants it to not be RDJ even though he definitely makes sense for it. :-(

shelly_bean said...

brendalove, I think he was only nominated for an oscar.

hi srd4!

Dawn said...

PUH - LEEEEZE

RDJ is A list no matter what

ridiculous

he's also not a complete retard, so I highly doubt he would have a public dinner with a known drug dealer.

if RDJ is back in the hole, he would NOT be public about it

And he's f'ing A-list am-A-zing, so heck no

shoe addict said...

I like the Josh Brolin guess.
-he was inNo country old men, now W
in today's photos with Diane Lane

Its not RDJ and here's why
-his acting is praised by everyone in the acting commnity, definitely A list. What actor wouldn't agree that he's a list
-he's done TV ally mcbeal
-even if he were back on drugs, for the sake of his career he wouldn't be caught out in public with the WELL KNOWN DEALER to the stars; he would sneak by the guy's house so no one would be the wiser. He may be an addict but he's not stupid.

shoe addict said...

Jinks Dawn,

me and the rest of the CDAN ers are beginning to think alike so much, our cycles r gonna synch up...lol, Guys too

amster said...

To throw another name out there, what about Christian Slater? It only says he has always done films, it doesn't say that is all he has done.

scumkid said...

what about colin hanks for that indie actor blind from awhile back?

Harriet Hellfire said...

Scumkid, I still think that was Michael Pitt...saw a picture of him on PH today, and he looks like he was rode hard and put away wet. If we're thinking of the same blind...the one with the coke nose job, right?

shoe addict said...

access hollywood just referred to mickey rourke's role in the wrestler as "comeback". I could picture him at dinner with the dealer to the stars and no one would even flinch, lol

gossiphound said...

i think it might be josh brolin. i hope not.he has always been one of my favorite actors.

Dijea said...

Hi srd4. Welcome.

RDJ was only nominated and he was out so long he could really be B-list, but with A list name recognition. This would make me the saddest woman on earth if it was RDJ.

If it was Mickey Rourke - would it really be worth a blind?

Christian Slater is a good guess too. Please no RDJ.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Sadly sounds very much like RJD. I sincerely hope I am wrong.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

Christian Slater is a great guess. Josh Brolin too. Didn't he used to knock Diane Lane around? I swear I read that somewhere. Christian Slater is known for film and is just now going into tv. Mickey Rourke B list? I don't see it.

juicy said...

Colin Farrell?

Rare Avis said...

Joeeeeeeeeeeeee heh, how's he doing Ent? Don't laugh too hard. Wanna play six degrees of seperation with him?

Molly said...

first person i thought of was josh brolin, too.

RagDoll said...

That's what I thought too, Juicy...Farrell.

devildana said...

Sienna Miller.

devildana said...

Sienna Miller.

timnpolly151 said...

guys -- if you think mickey is blist i gotta bank to sell ya!!
it's rdj :(

c17 said...

why is he even having dinner with him in the first place?


Geeze, I dunno...maybe because HE'S A FRIEND? Quit acting all High & Mighty - I'm sure there are people you associate with that you hope never see the light of day Ent...

april said...

I like the Josh Brolin-guess too!

pj said...

Nope to RDJ... A list. Oscar nomination counts for something, and the blockbuster this year. TV with Ally and SNL as a cast member. Not a clue on who it could be, but still looking.

swede in edinburgh said...

Maybe way out there... Tom Cruise. He has been in Tropic Thunder lately, the first movie I have seen him in in AGES that I liked him and he did a great job...and was strangely attractive too..in a subtle way.
Maybe he was having dinner with him to talk to him about his religion? Plausible.

Stacy said...

I'll toss Colin Farrell into the mix.

Starburst said...

Wait, Christian Slater's doing TV, in My Own Worst Enemy. The blind says the actors always been in films.

I second Mickey Rourke

michelle said...

I've been following this site (and posting answers once or twice) for a while and I LOVE it!! I am so glad you all pointed out it wasnt RDJ, I just adore him and love every movie he's in. He was the first name that popped into my head.

I have no idea who it is, like the Christian Slater guess..

linnea said...

Christian Slater was the first person i thought about too! That line "has always done movies" for some reason made me think that he isnt anymore! I agree that RDJ has done way to much TV to count. And that song CS was singing on "the actors studio"...

ally said...

Josh Brolin was in The Young Riders in the late 80's maybe early 90's.

Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones were filmed leaving lunch together in LA recently they have co starred together before, too lazy to see if they are currently co-starring.

Head Beezy In Charge said...

dijea is right!!

i.e., if this is Mickey Rourke it's not worth a blind in the slightest.

Call me back when Rourke's guest-starring as Wisteria Lane's Sanitation Engineer and taking turns in the trailer with Marcia Cross and Nicolette Sheridan doing lines off Eva Longoria's "fat-slash-pregnant" belly while Tony plays Madden 2k9 and itches that uncomfortable tattoo or his balls or both.

That said, i like amster's Christian Slater guess. Didn't another blog have something about a Heathers 2 lately?


Colin Farrell seems too out of the spotlight to fit this at all. Where's his comeback? Someone remind me.

Farrell doesn't fit. I go with Slater.

Marie said...

Farrell has also done TV - Ballykissangel.

Beth said...

I don't think RDJ fits (A-, did TV). Also, he's filming in Europe, not LA. Would the dealer to the stars be jetting abroad to fill an order?

Mickey Rourke seems the most obvious guess, so I am inclined to go that way.

Josh Brolin is interesting, but would we call his career a comeback. He was never THAT big to begin with, so I would say he is coming into his own rather than making a comeback.

I don't think Christian Slater is B-list anymore.

netbabeusa said...

Can't be Josh Brolin. His early career is filled with TV

KellyLynn said...

I'm going with Mickey Rourke on this one. None of the other guesses seem to fit.

Alicia said...

My guess would be Josh Brolin as well. He may have done TV, but it says always done films not only done films...

Kristen S. said...

Tom Cruise has a religion?!?!?! I thought he was just a top member of a giant pyramid scheme.

shelly_bean said...

LOL kristen s!! you hit the nail on the head

canadachick said...

just throwing it out there.....Billy Bob Thornton

baer said...

I'm gonna go watch CHAPLIN.

Judi said...

I don't think it's MRourke because this item's written in a way that infers that the actor's clean, which Rourke is obviously not. Just look at the guy. I'd like to know who this dealer is, too.

Beth said...

Billy Bob did TV. He was on Hearts Afire with John Ritter and Markie Post.

Is it sad that I didn't have to look that up?
