Four For Friday - D Listers

You know how I love themes on Friday's. All of these people are D listers. If you saw them and someone told you what show or movie they had been in you would say, "Oh yeah. I remember them." Chances are you probably wouldn't know them otherwise. Whatever their faults though, they do make for some interesting blinds.

#1 & 2 - This was a very popular family movie based on a best selling book starring lots of kids. One of the teenagers (at the time) in the movie who is extremely good looking and makes his career based on those looks now got his on set tutor pregnant. They are not together anymore and she is raising their child.

#3 & 4- This actress was very young when she was on this hit network drama. It ran for at least five years and during the last three of those years she was doing coke on a daily basis. After the show went off the air she spent a year in rehab and getting her nose fixed before her parents felt she was ready to return to middle school. Yes, middle school. She has just started acting again, although this time it is movies.

1 could be Cheaper by the Dozen or maybe the Babysitters Club?

farmgirl said...

I think #3 & 4 are Judging Amy's Karle Warren. She did nothing since then until one movie now in post production.

Anonymous said...

#1 - Sean Faris from Yours, Mine and Ours?

Not sure who the young coke fiend is.

Jamie's Girl said...

Juding Amy's Kyle Warren? Are you kidding me? How horrid. I didn't think much of her talent, but wow.

farmgirl said...

oh! #1 could be Taylor Lautner

farmgirl said...

Yours, Mine and Ours is not a bestselling book

Gabba Ghost said...

I could be completely wrong, but Cheaper By The Dozen and Yours, Mine, and Ours are remakes of films that didn't need to be touched (a rant for another day), and not based on a best selling book of the time.

Cheaper by the Dozen was a book in the 1940's. I agree with you. I was so mad when I saw what they did to it. My dad lived near that family, so I know more than I should ;)

Anonymous said...

I can't find any sales figures so "best selling book" may not apply, but Yours, Mine and Ours was based on the book "Who Gets the Drumstick" published in 1965.

ms snarky said...

cheaper by the dozen had the Smallville guy, who is really good looking.

Taylor D List?

wow, no idea really but juicy ones. Is the second one implying that said actor is now a model?

Anonymous said...

#1 and 2 Freddie Highmore in Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. LOL he is not extremely good looking, though.

Tessa said...

For some reason goonie's is stuck in my head. although I can't think of anyone that is good looking out of that cast and I don't think it was a book.

Back to the drawing board.

#1 : One of the Harry Potter kids?

Anonymous said...

william moseley; Chronicles of Narnia

Anonymous said...

robbert pattison for #1.

Anonymous said...

Movie based on book - Holes? Shia LeB was a teen at the time...

Anonymous said...

Sorry - Shia not D list

Anonymous said...

How about Lacy Charvet (sp?) from Party of Five - she was really young and has been in a couple of teen spoof movies. Also maybe Jodi Sweetin from Full House - she's back in the gossip and has know substance abuse problems - not sure if she's in any movies though.

Anonymous said...

Maybe #3 is Christine Lakin? She was on that show "Step by Step" and just now surfaced out of nowhere to do that stupid "Hottie or Nottie" movie with Paris Hilton.

farmgirl said...

Enty said it was a drama

amanda said...

"Cheaper by the Dozen," Tom Welling

kelsey said...

#1/#2 what about the narnia series (lion/witch or prince caspian)? I've never even seen it but just throwing other book-to-movies out there.

Anonymous said...

Cheaper By the Dozen definitely was a best-selling book. Tom Welling's too old to have an on-set tutor, though--he's 31 and the movie came out in 2003.

Red Chipped Polish said...

juicy!

Andy said...

What about "Holes" for #1/2? Disney movie, based on a book, starred Shia before he became a star.

Bad Fish said...

OH I love you farmgirl (and others) I was devastated by what they did to Cheaper By The Dozen. I agree that the first blind is about that movie.

Bad Fish said...

(I studied the Gilbreth family all my life, taking a personal interest from the age of 11 on through high school).

And whoa, wtf? Anonymous comments? Is that a friday thing now or a permanent thing?

Anonymous said...

Tom Welling and Shia LaBoef D listers? Seriously?

miley cyrus is not a 'musician' god how we've lowered out standards

Anonymous said...

sorry - I meant lowered our standards

Anonymous said...

I thought goonies as well - Josh Brolin

Lucky777 said...

I really don't have a clue, but these are two really good blinds, hopefully to be revealed in the summer. I like the Lacey Charvet guess!

Amy said...

Taylor Lautner was in cheaper by the dozen 2

Jillian S. said...

Has to be someone who is an adult by now.
Josh Brolin is not D List!

Anyone hot and D list in Lord of the Flies?

Jillian S. said...

or someone in White Squall? There were a lot of hot guys in that and only a few made it past D List.

Jill said...

Jillian - Balthazar Getty was in Lord of the Flies. Not sure that he's "extremely good looking" though.

What about Robert Sean Leonard - Dead Poets Society?

Jill said...

Nevermind, Dead Poets Society wasn't based on a book.

Katy said...

What about the Harry Potter movies, there were certainly a lot of kids in that movie.

luciseeger said...

Lacey Chabert "Party of Five"

JS said...

Cheaper by the Dozen was a best selling book, but like another said, Tom Welling was in his 20's when it was shot. Not sure about Cheaper by the Dozen 2, but maybe it was someone who played a friend or a boyfriend of one of the kids, not one of the kids directly.

farmgirl said...

Agreed Bad Fish.
There was a sequel book to Cheaper by the Dozen called Bells on Their Toes. I think it could very well be Taylor Lautner from 2.
I also stick by my Judging Amy guess for the other one. Lacy Chabert is someone we know - not someone we would have to try to remember as laid out in the blind.
:)

Karmen said...

No idea for #1 and 2, but sure as hell ain't Tom Welling or Shia LaDOUCHE.

Lacy Chabert or whatever was the voices for Eliza on The Wild Thornberrys and was Meg Griffin on the first season or two of Family Guy. Can't be her.

farmgirl said...

Besides, Lacey Chabert was 18 when Po5 ended - not exactly middle school age . . . .

Anonymous said...

For some weird reason Ruthie from 7th Heaven came to mind for the middle schooler.

JS said...

looking at kids in CBTD2 and found this wiki entry:
"Robert Patrick Amell (born April 21, 1988 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian actor. Along with his sister, he started modeling and acting in small roles in commercials when he was six years old.....He appeared as Daniel Murtaugh in Cheaper by the Dozen 2"

Mary said...

3&4 - the chick who played Ruthie (the youngest daughter who had the curly hair) on 7th Heaven.

figgy said...

LOVED the book Cheaper by the Dozen when I was a kid. Just had to say that. Never saw the movie. and no idea about the blinds.

Anonymous said...

the little girl that played ruthie on 9th heavin for # 3&4 totally! hasn;t ther been some sort of controversy with her involved? if not - i'm surprised! she seemed like trouble... ;)

Anonymous said...

whoops.. obviously i meant 7th heaven.

Ms.Leigh said...

there was controversy about ruthie? i'm def. late to that party!

Anonymous said...

Is shane west possible for number 1? for walk to remember?

linnea said...

only problem is, mackenzie (ruthie) was 18 when that show went off the air. So she is out

Ms.Leigh said...

really? she was so young the last time i saw her. when did the show finally end? plus, i wouldn't classify that show as outright drama.

i'm just curious how she's doing. i hope she's staying away from the tabloid fodder.

linnea said...

accordin to imdb, she was born 1989 (i KNOW! She looks a lot younger) and the show went off the air in 2007...

Leah said...

Wasn't the drama about "Ruthie" from 7th Heaven regarding all the pictures she took of herself being "sexy" ?
Similar to the Miley licking an ice cream/wet t-shirt/shower photos.

I wish we knew if these shows/movies were recent.

Anonymous said...

Dudes, it's "Cheaper by the Dozen." Check IMDB cast and crew: Tom Welling, Ashton Kutcher, Jared Padalecki. Ashton and Jared are listed as uncredited.

Leah said...

#3/4
Hit network Drama's of at least five seasons.

Ally McBeal? - Hayden P isn't D-list, though I wish.
Where there any kids on West Wing? Dr. Quinn?

Well it could be Karle Warren (Judging Amy) she was 7 when the show started and 13 when it ended. She's from LA, so it's not like when the show is over she can go back to a little town in Oregon or something, if she's living in LA you still have the child-actor living like a grown up issue.
Poor thing whomever it was.

Patti said...

I go with Karle Warren. Right age and is in a movie currently in post production. Prior to that, nothing on imdb since Judging Amy ended in 2005.

Bad Fish said...

@farmgirl

I loved Belles On Their Toes, too. The difference between the REAL Gilbreth story and that of the movies is sad and a discredit to their contribution to American history as efficiency experts that helped boost the Industrial Revolution.

the.princess.leia said...

#3/4, Well, if Enty would have said hit network show or comedy instead of drama, I would have guessed Madeline Zima (sp?) who was on The Nanny. She was in A Cinderalla Story but now is probably best known for her sexual fetish from the show Californication.

So, I'm going to have to concur with Karle Warren for now.

non said...

It can't be Ruthie from Seventh Heaven. That show was on for 9 years, and the blind says 5.

I was going to say Quinn Cummings, but Family was only on for 2 years... so I guess I'm on the Karle train.

no clue for 1 & 2.

the.princess.leia said...

@ Leah 8:18am

There was a lot of controversy when Jessica Biel did the cover shoot, like half naked, for Gear Magazine because she wanted out of her contract.

As far as Ruthie (Mackenzie Rosman) from what I can find, it seems she is pretty level headed and has been working with Cystic Fibrosis Foundation for several years. She had a step-sister with CF who passed away on Christmas Day of last year at the age of 22. (Sad!)

Rene said...

I'm liking the Narnia guess for #1. I have no idea for #2 though.

sauvage said...

What Rene said.

But just for the fun of it: Someone who starred in "Ten Things I Hate About You". I guess Shakespeare's work WOULD qualify as bestselling, wouldn't it?

star_grades said...

It has to be Cheaper By The Dozen for #1. Family movie based on a book. Starring lots of kids. There's 12 children in that movie (obviously).
I wouldn't call Harry Potter a family movie. Sure, it's popular, and all the family might want to go see it, but it's certainly not classified as 'family' material.

As for #2 I have no idea, but I like the Party of Five guess with Lacey Chabert. She was in nothing after that until Mean Girls.

Jesse said...

i know karle warren personally. she didnt even go to middleschool she was homeschooled. she was never sent to rehab nor does she have a substance abuse problem. sorry to rain on all of yr parades.
