Today's Blind Items - From The Accountant

First some updates. The German singer arrested for transmitting HIV is not the HIV positive singer. Also, Coke Mom has not been in the photos the past few days.

This B list movie actor is on the cusp of A list. He had a breakout year last year. He considers himself to be a method actor to some extent. For researching one role he spent a great deal of money on drugs. Just for research mind you. Since he considered the research crucial to his acting performance he wanted to know if he could deduct the $15,000 he spent on drugs.

Quintessential Southerner said...

joaquin p.

AnonMom said...

James Franco

Quintessential Southerner said...

so neither tori or courtney are the coke mom?

am i correct?

littlemanwhatnow said...

i think franco too because he's going to play allan ginsburg.

SkittleKitty said...

Franco or Rogen because of Pineapple Express, that's my thought too.

Arachne said...

huh. sounded like shia laboeuf to me.

seth rogan and james franco have both had hits before last year -- superbad/knocked up for rogan and spiderman for franco.

Pookie said...

loser seth.

0 said...

coke mom = white oprah?

littlemanwhatnow said...

Arachne makes a god point but Spider Man he was not the lead or anything. I don't think it's Rogan but Shia is a great guess

no one said...

so coke mom is not, cox, tori or kate backinsdale...

Jennifer said...

James Franco was the first name that came to mind...

gillian said...

Ryan Gosling
druggie role: Half Nelson (2006)
breakout role: Lars and the Real Girl (late 2007 poss 2008)

Just parsing the blind; it didn't say the deduction was for this year's taxes.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Coke mom is someone with a young child, I think, a little kid who would copy whatever mommy was doing. I am kind of on the Debra Messing wagon myself.

I thought Gosling for this blind as well, but only because he was the only one I could think of that had a drug movie recently...*L* I don't know if the description fits.

Harriet Hellfire said...

Ooooh but I also like the James Franco guess!

Quintessential Southerner said...

well messing has not been in the pics a few days, unless i am mistaken...

Lori said...

I thought Josh Brolin since he had something like 6 movies out last year, but I don't know if any were drug related. If not, Franco fits.

KellyLynn said...

You mean Brolin didn't portray W as if he was heavily drugged?

Just kidding. In any case, I think it's Franco.

shakey said...

I do believe Ent helped us out there.

Does Seth Rogen consider himself to be a method actor, or does he choose roles where he knows a thing or two about bud?

I was going to guess Jonah Hill, but his imdb page says solid B.

Ha, when I put in "method actor" in the search window of imdb, I get Method Acting with Kevin James.

Cindy said...

My first thought for the tax evader was Christian Bale, but I don't know if he pays taxes here or in England (though the BI didnt specify a country).

I am on the Debra Messing bandwagon for the coke mom, but Lord I hope its not her.

Julie said...

wheres the blind item that says the actor and his wife went on vacation with his mistress?

and everyone thought it was tom hanks, but came out today it was Mel Gibson?

Ed said...

It could be James Franco because he was working steadily but last year seemed to be the year everyone knew his name, but I kinda like the Josh Brolin guess better

Aphrodite said...

First time commenter ( long time peruser), and am really nervous!
Why did Rob P. pop into my head? He seems like a method actor, and wouldn't his Twilght makings be applied to this years taxes?
Be nice:)

Lady J said...

How old was the child of coke mom? Cause Debra Messing's kid is five? Isn't that a little old to still be doing Mommy and me classes?
As for the BI I think Franco is a good guess.

Julia said...

I like the Rob P. guess - I think I read somewhere he thinks of himself as a method actor. Is he on the cusp of A list? I'm not well-versed on the lists :)

sunnyside1213 said...

I am on the Rob P. bandwagon. And wasn't there a BV about two actors who needed extra time to rehearse and bond back at the hotel getting high everyday - pretty sure that was Rob and Kristen.

Karmen said...

Enty doesn't say how old the child is. Here's the blind from the other day:
A couple of months ago in this space I talked about the actress who left her coke out while she went to answer the phone and her child found it. The child of course was copying what mommy had been doing. Well, apparently mommy's habit is getting out of control again because she was at a swim class with her child. She was in the water with her child and several other parents and yet went to the dressing room 3 times in a 45 minute class. Each time she went, she would leave her child to be watched over by another parent or the teacher of the class.

Isabel said...

James Franco

bflogurl said...

I like the Rob P guess as well....

As for Coke Mom, the kid would have to be about 1 or 2 (as said before on this site) to be in Mommy and Me swim. I have a 5 year old in Level III swim class doing dives, so I highly doubt Messings 5 year old needs her to do "motorboat, Motorboat" with her =)

Quintessential Southerner said...

are swim classes only for toddlers? aren't there advanced kids' swimming classes? i'm not a parent so i wouldn't know.

...and no child would know how to take any illicit drug without watching an older person. the child could have easily been curious and thought nothing of it to use... *shrugs*

brendalove@gmail.com said...

If the child has never swam before, I could see the mom still being needed for a first time class at 4 to 5 years of age.

BinkyM said...

I'll remind people for a third time that the coke mom is terribly desperate to get into movies, yet Debra Messing has done several (and starred in at least one). She doesn't fit the blind.Insofar as the B-list method actor is concerned, remember that a movie is produced well in advance of its hitting theatres, which means that a movie like "Pineapple Express," which came out in 08/08, likely was made sometime in 2007. Post-production can take a long time, and pre-production (during which time a method actor can do lots of his method horseshit, learning to "get into character) takes place much earlier. He may have been trying to write this stuff off his 2007 and 2008 taxes, even.

The point I'm trying to make is that you might keep in mind that the movie we're looking for might be coming out this year.

bflogurl said...

Brendalove.... where we are, independent classes (no matter what the level of swim) begin at 3-4. The little ones basically hang on to the wall the whole time.

asstronaut said...

i thought rob p as well... little ashes. however he must have had some good shit to spend 15k on herb. couldnt be him

sassafrass said...

I don't blame method man for trying. Hell, I walk in my accountants office with ridiculous receipts. I get shot down, but I try.

Now, coke mom is really bugging me since Ent eliminated some popular guesses. I hope he makes it a regular thing to give us hints here and there.

sassafrass said...

Oh, when I got up this morning to read online news and saw the German pop singer with HIV I thought for sure she was the answer. How many famous infected singers are running around? I honestly do not get how people screw without condoms. And to top it off she friggin knew!

Mooshki said...

I pick Winehouse, Messing, and Franco. And Enty, I love it when you give us updates.

Jim said...

Emile Hirsch is my guess. Drug movie was Alpha Dog; broke out in Into the Wild and Milk (less so in Speed Racer).

BlahFrickinBlah said...

Alpha Dog was too long ago. He wasn't doing a shit load of drugs in the movie. He was more of a dealer than a user. Seth Rogen is another bad guess. Dude has been a pothead forever so there is no need to "research" that shit. Franco sounds like a good guess but like someone said above, 15k for weed is pretty steep and on the low side for blow.

As for the kids in swim class, they don't have to be babies or toddlers. It's not unrealistic for a 5 yr old to need their mom in the water with them especially if they are just learning to swim.

Kristine said...

Ryan Gosling for sure.

Pen said...

Jessica Alba - it was mentioned on a website that her and Honour were going to Mommy and Me?!

First time guess

muccimooch333 said...

The blind indicates that the method actor was using drugs for researching a role. In Twilight, Rob P. played a vampire, and the vampire did not do drugs. In order for the Rob P. guess to work, you'd need to look at the other films that were shooting last year: Little Ashes and/or How To Be. In Little Ashes he plays Salvatore Dali, and I don't know if Dali did drugs, but he probably did. I do not know anything about the role Rob P. played in How To Be. In any case, going back to the his role in Twilight, Edward did tell Bella that she was like his own personal brand of heroine, so maybe the Twilight guess would work after all. Just my thoughts. Personally, I hope this blind is not about Rob. I hope that this blind is about James Franco. Pineapple Express was hilarious.

honeysweetie said...

My son is 4 and still clings to me in the pool.

Mrs George Glass said...

Franco fits for the method part. He apparently used to be obsessively method, but has lightened up on it a lot. There is a Funny or Die video of him parodying this about himself.

dreadpiratecuervo said...

I find it hard to believe James Franco never smoke pot before Pineapple Express, but I'd be willing to bet that whoever tried to write off party goods was high when they came up w/the idea!

Wa said...

I'm thinking Rob P...

Val said...

I'm confident Christina Aguilara (sp) is the coke Mom. I was browsing pregnant star photos on TMZ & under her photo was a comment about "if she doesn't lose custody".

Val said...

Micky Rourke wanting to deduct steroid expenses.

IndigoBlue said...

Don't have any good guesses, but I'm nixing Ryan Gosling as the doer. The Notebook and Murder by Numbers were his breakout roles (moreso the Notebook, even though Murder came first) and those were way before last tax year.

dbfreak said...

I wouldn't count out weed - one can easily spend $15K on good weed over the period of a year if one smokes enough ; ) So I'm going with James Franco, even though I think he was smoking weed back in the Freaks & Geeks days LOL.

Also, I didn't learn to swim until I was 7 and had to be in classes with toddlers, so...

Mrs.M5 said...

so what about Mickey Rourke? i heard he was doing steroids when he was filming the wrestler...jus a thought. i know if it was a good thought, someone would already have come up with it =)

*girl said...

Salvador Dali was a huge drug user, and was very open about its use and its affect on his work. So, could be Rob P.

lyz said...

My boy was 5 when he took swimming lessons all of the parents were in the pool w/ their kids.

Ellen said...

I think swimming lessons are different at every swim school. Some places apparently want the parents in the pool longer than others for liability reasons.

I think I like the Christina Aguilera or Jessica Alba guesses best, but it is just so horrible to think that this really happened.

not on my dollar said...

Christina Aguilera is not a television actress and Jessica Alba doesn't have to "kill to get into movies" because she's already a movie actress.

Neither of these women are the answer to this blind.

captivagrl said...

I had my son in water babies class before he could walk, so this could be a younger child.

__-__=__ said...

Messing would be Tori Spelling thin if it was her.

rwikert75 said...

It sounds JUST like Seth Rogen but I'm afraid it may be James Franco....if you look on James' Myspace profile he says he's a "Method Actor" and goes on to explain what that means. Also, we have a few friends in common and if it's not him then someone else is exactly like him....

Mooshki said...

Messing is Tori Spelling thin, isn't she?

James said...

maybe Danny McBride. He's on the cusp of making himself A list and his Kenny Powers character on HBO uses drugs.
