Today's Blind Items

This A list television actor on a hit network drama has been in a relatively long term relationship. He is cheating on his significant other with a female crew member on his television show. To cover it up he has been paying a male crew member to act as the boyfriend for the female crew member so his significant other won't catch on. Confused? Well it gets more interesting. The two crew members are actually sleeping together without the A list actor knowing.

And he is paying the guy lol. What an idiot lol. Serves him right.

lutefisk said...

so technically he is getting screwed by both!

Jack said...

this one is confusing. Perhaps another clue so we can actually have a chance to guess?

Emobacca said...

Eh...Im not buying this one

littleoleme said...

I must say I admire these two crew members for figuring out how to screw over the actor. Or is it that the male crew member who is smarter than them all? He's figured out how to get paid and laid?

janele said...

So, by "crew member", the actual boyfriend/girlfriend might be the production assistants, gaffer, gripboy, etc., and not actual actors?

As much as I love him, I will guess Hugh Laurie. And I seriously hope it isn't him at the same time!

McDooks said...

How hilarious! The icing on the cake would be if his significant other was ALSO steppin' out on his ass.
I love seeing a scammer get scammed- beautiful!

Kiefer Sutherland? But I don't think he has been dating his current GF that long.

HookedOnCDAN said...

Mark Harmon (NCIS) is the first person who came to my mind.

Karmen said...

Mark Harmon is married. I think this person is just dating their significant other.

Ice Angel said...

Kiefer?

Dave said...

Patrick Dempsey.

Lucky777 said...

That's a great twist.

Is NCIS really a "hit"?

Hit network dramas with A list actors:

House
24
Heroes
The Mentalist (?)
Greys
Ugly Betty

House was also the first one that jumped into my head. Is the guy from The Mentalist A list (I guess not if I have to call him "the guy", and don't know his name!)

HookedOnCDAN said...

Well then, if marriage isn't considered a LTR, that rules out Patrick Dempsey (married since 1999) and Hugh Laurie (since 1989).

Cheryl said...

There's nothing to go on. Need more clues.

Dijea said...

Both Hugh Laurie & Mark Harmon are married. ENTY would have said married.

OK, hmmmmm is David Caruso A list?

HookedOnCDAN said...

The Mentalist is Simon Baker, and he's married since 1989. According to some rule somewhere, that means he's not qualified for this blind because LTR does not equal marriage.

Nature Girl said...

Simon Baker is The Mentalist, and he's married with 3 kids, I think.

Who's unmarried, but in a 'relatively long term relationship'? What's that, 1 year?

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

My first thought was John Corbett, but I don't think he's A-list, and he's not currently on a drama.

John Stamos, maybe?

angelina said...

What about the handsome guy from Mad Men? He's been with his lady for about/over 10 years.

Pookie said...

angelina, i thought that too, only the BI states it's a network drama, not a cable one...

hmmm, i'm gonna go w/ the new guy on the block...the lead on "lie to me", what's his name?

nancer said...

tim roth. but this is the first TV he's done, isn't it? don't think it's him.

JS said...

well, I don't think Tim Roth is A-list. I don't think Ugly Betty is a network drama(it's a comedy, really) There has to be other A list actors on network dramas than the ones discussed so far...but I need to look at IMDB for some ideas.

pomme said...

i'm with people who think on kiefer sutherland!i don't know if he is in longtime relation!

JS said...

OK, I looked at all of the Top network dramas and I still have no clue. I don't think most of them have A-list actors and the ones that do seem to have married A-list actors.

JS said...

IMDB says that Keifer Sutherland was divorced in May of 2008. So, I don't think the person he was seeing after the divorce, if anyone, would be considered for long term relationship..

dollface said...

No way it's Mark Harmon. He's an incredibly moral guy.

warmislandsun said...

I like this one - what goes around, comes around.

seafoamgreen said...

OK! Joshua Jackson (on Fringe) is dating Diane Kruger. Maybe he's cheating on her with somoeone else on the show! He's the only possibility I came up with.

ChehalisDiva said...

What about Laurence Fishburn, on CSI now?

I'm with you, Seafoam. (And not just because I like your name.) I'd actually call Joshua B-list, but I can see why Enty would call him A-list because Dawson's was on so long, and he's relatively high-profile with his relationships.

Kat said...

Lucky777 - NCIS is definitely a hit. Highest rated non-DWTS or American Idol show. It is regularly ranked in the top 5. And no, I don't think it is Mark Harmon either.

bionic bunny! said...

drama could mean soap opera.
also, google lists tnt and scifi channels as network.
so there may be some shows we're missing.

Lauren said...

Dempsey is married, so that's out with all of the other married men.

Enty would have said wife, not girlfriend.

I like the Jon Hamm guess because he won a golden globe for Mad Men. Pacey is a maybe but I really like him with Diane!

Regardless- I'm glad this guy is getting screwed- it's just desserts.

Lauren said...

Oops, Enty said significant other- nevermind, it's a bit more openended now.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

"Network" drama rules out Mad Men or any of the other cable shows. The "networks" are considered to be ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, and WB.

littlemanwhatnow said...

i thought jon hamm...but i think possibly josh whatever from fringe

katie said...

Naveen Andrews (LTR with Barbara Hershey) - he's already strayed and had a kid with another women.

WBotW said...

I think katie has it! Definitely!

vian said...

Laurence Fishburne is married to Gina Torres

poster_child said...

I like the Naveen Andrews or Josh Jackson guess.

Other hit network dramas are: Desperate Housewives, Brothers & Sisters; Friday Night Lights; The Ghost Whisperer; Heroes; Law & Order SVU; Criminal Minds. But so far I haven't found any other unmarried A-listers.

AMC is cable, as is TNT, USA, SciFi, TBS (and many, many other cable channels). I used to sell airtime for cable programming.

So keep those unwholesome thoughts away from Jon Hamm. :)

JS said...

I don't consider Naveen Andrews any where close to A-list. I don't think Joshua Jackson is either, but I could see where a fan of Dawson's creek would think so.

nancer said...

who the hell is naveen andrews?

whole_lotto _luv said...

nancer, Naveen Andrews plays Sayid on Lost.

Mrs.M5 said...

OOOOOOO! what about George Eads, guys?!? he has been with his girfriend forever and CSI is a hit show...oh man, what a good guess i made! yay me!

Ms.Leigh said...

i love karma! no clue who it could be, but serves him right.

star_grades said...

I like the Josh Jackson guess, but whoever said he was B List was probably right. Fringe and Dawsons have been his only two (big?) TV shows that I know of.
Not being from the States I can't comment on network/cable.

JS said...

does enty differentiate between A-list TV actor and A-list movies actor? Maybe my A list definition is too high.

kai said...

It's Matthew Fox from ABC's Lost!He's been married since 1991. 'long-term relationship' and 'significant other' doesn't necessarily mean they are not married!

mikey said...

I like David Caruso for this. Not married, long term relationship, but he does have a child with her -that would have been mentioned, right?

rachelstargirlrox said...

Simon Baker?
:P The Mentalist is definitely a hit show... and I'd say he's pretty A-List.

Mooshki said...

Enty's definition of an A list television actor: "someone who has had their own show or been the star of a television show for more than 5 years combined or 3 years on one show." So using the Dawson's Creek example, I'd say Joshua is A list tv because of Dawson's and because he's starring in a show again, but James van der Beek is ex-A list, and has dropped to B list because he just does guest shots now.

amymarie said...

Unfortunately, I think this is probably JJ - which makes me sad because I used to be in love with him back in the Dawson's Creek days!

He's been in quite a few movies though, do you think Enty would have mentioned that?

Bello (Buddy) Manjaro said...

The use of significant other instead of girlfriend leads me to think he is in a LTR with a man. Then pointing it out as a female crew member he is cheating with. That puts a little different spin on it.

anywhichwat. I have no clue. but i woould be interested to know why he chose to phrase it that way.
