Today's Blind Items

You always hear about actors or actresses being stalked, but rarely is it the other way around. With all the Paula Abdul mess going on, it reminded me of something that happened three or four years ago. It involved what is now probably a C list actor, but at the time he was the s**t. He wasn't A list, but there was hardly any girl or woman from about the age of 12-25 who didn't know who he was. Every week he was right there staring at them from the television set and every day he was sitting on the front porch of this girl he met in the town where they filmed the show. He met her when she was an extra on the show and from that day forward he just was always around. She liked the attention at first. He was the star of the show after all. But, at some point it just became creepy and he would not stop following her or calling her. Her parents finally called the cops and a producer was dispatched from LA to handle the mess. Our actor was never arrested, and in return for keeping quiet, the girl got a free year of tuition for college and a brand new car.

Chad Michael Murray?
Or someone from Dawson?

sassafrass said...

No clue. I do want to thank you blogger person for fixing your site.

Dee said...

Chad Michael Murray was my first thought, too.

dawson guy

Ed said...

I was thinking Van Der Beek or Ben MacKenzie. Or that Nerd guy from The OC

Adrienne said...

The OC?? Guess based on the comment accompanying the Gossip Girl cast photo in Randoms today.

emstee22 said...

wasn't chad michael murry married to someone on the show during that time? i know they divorced, it could be the reason, but i just think that if his wife was on the set, she would have tried to stop it? i could be wrong though.


just a guess, but what about one of the guys from the OC? benjamin mackenzie perhaps?

Liz said...

My guess is James Van Der Beek as well. Wasn't that filmed in North Carolina? That seems very much like a "town" that would have front porches, etc., based on the wording of the BI.

Liz said...

ahem ... I meant *Wilmington*, North Carolina. I know North Carolina is a state. :-/.

Cheryl said...

What about Joshua Jackson from Dawson's Creek? He got into some legal trouble down in NC and had to go through an alcohol education program.

I thought Van Der Beek was gay, or at least that's what the blind items from a few years ago were implying.

amh.producer said...

I immediately thought of Dawson's but then the blind said 3 or so years old, right? I'll go with CMM, was / is he on the OC?

Lauren said...

I also thought James Van Der Beek, but that show has been off the air for 5 years. I think it is a newer show. One Tree Hill actor is a good guess.

jax said...

van der beak is married and was for the last few years of Dawsons i think. it went off the air in 2003 so its not DC. we're looking for 2004-05.

Chad Michael Murray was my first guess as well.

tori tee said...

Hi am a first timer. My first thought was dawson creek. I haven't a clue about the actor though. Then again it could be someone from the OC.I loved that show. I remember watching it on sunday afternoons. That's when it was shown here in the UK.

Cali Girl said...

I think James Van Der Beek is quite happily married since 2003. And I think Creek has been over since then as well, so not quite the 3-4 yr timeframe (although, who knows if that's not slightly off to provide a red herring)

I think the Ben McKenzie guess is a good one - the timeframe is right and the other clues fit.

And as Adrienne pointed out, there is the OC reference in the pics...

Marisa said...

Ben McKenzie was a good guess, but I don't think he's considered to be C List now, is he? Lower than that as he's been MIA since the show's demise.

I'm gonna go with Kevin McKidd, who was and is stalking me.

DNfromMN said...

I was going to say Adam Brody from the OC, but they wouldn't need to sic someone from LA.

I think you guys are right on track with One Tree Hill being the show.

Andrea said...

It's probably not Chad Michael Murray, since he was married to Sophia Bush, cheated on her with Paris Hilton (while she cheated on Nick Carter), and then almost immediately started dating a high school senior who was an extra on his show, to whom he is now engaged. Plus, CMM was never the shit.

I'm going to guess someone from a different CW show. Think Smallville, Veronica Mars... Smallville films in Vancouver and I want to say Veronica Mars filmed in San Diego but I could be wrong about that. Jason Dohring is pretty creepy. Yes, married, but still incredibly creepy. Tom Welling? Mike Rosenbaum?

Idiot Watcher said...

I was thinking Jesse Metcalf for this one...

palealebrew10 said...

First immediate guess: Adam Brody. I know he dated Rachel Bilson for a while on set though, so maybe not. But based on this timeline, I doubt it's someone from Dawson's Creek.

Julie said...

i thought it was Ashton Kutcher lol

trogdor said...

I wish this guy would have stalked me for 4 years.

'cause then I wouldn't have student loans.

Are you out there actor?! I'll put on a wig for you if you throw in grad school!

Anyhow, methinks Vanderdouche. Filmed in North Carolina. Only state that prolly still has 'towns'. Only thing is it ended in 2003. Which is five years ago. Enty said 3 or 4. Could he have meant 4 or 5 instead?

califblondy said...

LOL @ Marisa.

bionic bunny! said...

i'm kind of surprised it doesn't happen more often.
not familiar enough with any of the shows to offer a guess.

trashtalker said...

Gotta be Ben McKenzie. He was the star. He was the shit then. And Ent just referenced the show (and the cast's fleeting fame) in the Random Photos.

Is where "The OC" filmed far enough from LA that a producer would be "dispatched" there?

The only other name I can come up with is Travis Fimmel of "Tarzan." But that was on five years ago.

Miss X said...

I still think it's Chad Michael Murray.

Kristen said...

I'm gonna go with CMM...the blind never mentions marriage maybe because it would be a giveaway....

star_grades said...

I'm sorry, but it just can't be anyone from Dawsons!
Firstly: he is married and has been for a long while.
Second: The show wrapped in 2003, and for seasons 5 & 6 they were in Boston 90% of the time, so the last year they were in Wilmington full time was 2001, making that 7 years ago.
Third: Enty wouldn't say 3-4 years if he meant 5-7.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I gotta go with CMM or that dude from the OC. I am actually leaning towards the OC guy. He was quite the shit for about 15 mins and like the rest of that cast, gone now.

Dave said...

Wouldn't be Ben McKenzie. The show was filmed in LA, and the supposed OC pier was actually the Hermosa Beach pier. Also, it was a pretty well-known fact that he frequented many of the gay bars in WH at the time.

Wouldn't be Dawson, since the show was off the air well before 3 years ago.

Wouldn't be Kevin McKidd, as that show doesn't fit the demo, and it was shot on a closed soundstage in Italy.

CMM sounds right, as it was filmed in NC and he was quite the shit in that demo at the time.

Beth said...

My first thought was JVDB, but apparently the timeline is all wrong.

I don't think dispatching would be required to anywhere in the LA or even SD areas, so I don't think it's anyone from Veronica Mars or the OC.

I like the CMM guess.

Clair said...

I am thinking something that was filmed in Vancouver or Toronto. Dawson's is a good guess not being in LA, but what about shows filmed in Canada?

Marie said...

Oooh, I like Andrea's Michael Rosenbaum guess. I love him, but he does give off a slightly creepy vibe. He could stalk me any day.

sauvage said...

I'm on the Chad Michael Murray train.

sauvage said...

P. S. But now that I've read Enty comments on the GG cast: "I think they need to remember that their fame could be very fleeting. Hello OC cast?" me thinks it could be as well Adam Brody we are talking about. Everybody was crazy about him a couple of years ago for a very short time, first on "Gilmore girls", then "The OC", so... It's only that I SO MUCH dislike CMM, I simply WANT this to be him and not the reallyreally goodlooking Adam. Allright, I'm going to shut up now.

Audrey said...

I'm going to run from the pack and say the guy from Everwood.

Marisa said...

Dave-

Kevin McKidd is so stalking me. He'd fly back and forth from Italy to the States just to wait around for me. Idiot.
