Today's Blind Items

It is kind of like a Three For Monday. We have a B-/C+ television and film actress who is currently a female lead on this network drama. It's a new show. Popular though. Anyway, her male co-star is extremely popular on this site, but he is also probably a B-/C+ mostly television actor. Apparently our actress has been acting like a diva on the show and our actor called her out on it. This is an actual quote. " You are a f**king c**t. Who the hell do you think you are that you can treat people the way you do on set. The crew hates you the cast hates you and the producers hate you and this is no way to build any kind of career, so knock it off you f**king whore." Oh, and both of our actors are foreign born.

#1 - Actress
#2 - Television show
#3 - Actor

Oh snap, Fillion!

1. shenae grimes from 90210
2. 90210
3. nooooo idea

Mooshki said...

LOL, I'm so glad I already hated her. Her acting sucks. Every part of that show is amazing except her. And Nathan, if you're reading this, you rock my world. But I could never date you, because you have the same name as my brother. :(

Mooshki said...

(And, in case you didn't guess, I'm going with Courtney's guess:

#1 Stana Katic
#2 Castle
#3 Nathan Fillion

allyson2626 said...

My love for Nathan Fillion knows no bounds!!!

princessdanikam said...

ohhh I'm on the castle bandwagon too. wayy better.

shazzzba said...

CASTLE...MAYBE...BUT
BOTH CANADIAN...BUT THAT SHOW'S NOT DOING WELL IN THE RATINGS....I THINK IT'S A DIFFERENT SHOW...

story said...

1. Anna Torv (Australia)
2. Fringe
3. Joshua Jackson (Canada)

TFLive said...

Wasn't Stana Kavic a nobody before castle? C list would be generous. What about Lie To Me?

Courtney said...

Mooshki, agreed. She makes the show hurt me. I watch for him, and she just ruins it. Bitch.

nunaurbiz said...

I thought immediately of Hugh Laurie from "House" for #3. I don't watch the show, but he's very popular here and from what I know about him, it sounds like something he would say!

DNfromMN said...

Hmm... I can see Stana Katic being kind of a bitch. I don't mind her at all on the show.

I'll take a different take:
1) Anna Torv
2) Fringe
3) Joshua Jackson

I can see Joshua Jackson cracking before I could see Fillion doing it (did anyone else see his visit to Craig Ferguson wearing a leathre kilt last week?).

Bodie said...

I like Story's guess.
I can see Joshua Jackson saying something like that too being the good Canadian guy that he is :)

DNfromMN said...

tflive - Stana played a very similar part in The Spirit released last year.

As for Lie to Me, I don't know that Tim Roth is a CDAN favorite. Though he does have a potty mouth and a temper.

PrincessButtercup said...

I'll go Fringe and the Joshua Jackson gues. Regardless of what the diva antics were, I don't see NF going that far.

Mooshki said...

The Fringe guess does sound equally plausible. :( I don't think he'd "crack," but I think Fillion has no trouble saying exactly what's on his mind. And yes, he was freaking hot in the kilt. And very, very funny.

Jillian S. said...

Is Castle a hit? If so, def Fillion and Stana Katic.

If not, Joshua Jackson and chick from Fringe.

nunaurbiz said...

Oh, I guess "House" isn't new. Oh well. I bet he'd still say something like that! :-)

Bodie said...

I don't think Castle is as "popular" as Fringe is....

kris said...

Never heard of Castle...I'll go with Fringe answers...

cibele said...

I love Joshua and if that's him, i love him even more!

Mooshki said...

Would Mark Valley have married Anna if she was a bitch? He always seemed pretty cool to me.

Kevin said...

Yeah, I though Fringe for sure. Fringe and Medium are the only 2 new network drama's that did okay this year. And with JJ and AT being non US, pretty much seals it I think.

Pookie said...

*soooo jumping on the fringe train*

PrincessButtercup said...

Medium's not new.

Cheryl said...

My first thought was Castle before I even finished reading and then I checked Wiki to see if Nathan Fillion was foreign born. Also according to wiki, both shows have about the same number of viewers, so Fringe is plausible too. I'm sticking with Castle though because I think Nathan Fillion is more popular around here than Joshua Jackson.

Bodie said...

Mooshki, perhaps she's just good in the sack ;)

Anna Torv does seem to have what my friend refers to as that "blonde bitch face" thing going, LOL

my apologies to the blonde readers of this site ;)

seriously though. google image her and you'll see what i mean.

Eddie said...

Simon Baker on the Mentalist and Robin Tunney?

Maggie said...

Another vote for Katic/Castle/Fillion...the were in the audience at DWTS a couple of weeks back and she looked as sour as an unripe cherry

Emobacca said...

This is Nathon Fillion. Nathan is a god amongst the women here at CDAN so he fits the clue.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

My first thought was Fillion too.

incognito said...

I don't think JJ Abrams would allow this kind of behaviour on his set

amh.producer said...

Eddie,
Those (Robin tunney/The mentalist/simon baker) were my initial guesses too!

ElsieFire said...

My Nathan would NEVER use the C*NT WORD!!! LOL!!

Seriously, I <3 the Castle guess, if only for the "very popular on this site" clue.

Yay Canadians!

AnonMom said...

Fillion rocked my world in "Waitress". Love this, if this is him.

Dave said...

I hope it's not Stana Katic, I love her. It's Castle's mom that makes me cringe when she's on screen. Can we just agree that Castle's daughter is adorable?

jax said...

i'd just like to say there is NO way, you'd hear Joshua Jackson talk that way to a woman on set.
know lots of people who have worked with him locally.

Mooshki said...

Robin Tunney is American.

After reading and watching some interviews with both of them, I'm definitely going with Stana Katic.

maggiemei said...

Robin Tunney was born in Chicago, so she doesn't fit the clues.

I am jumping on the Katic/ Castle/ Fillion guess. She seems like more of a bitch than Anna Torv.

warmislandsun said...

One of Anna Torv's castmates married her, so I doubt the entire cast and crew hates her that much. I like the Castle guess. When Katic was on Craig Ferguson she seemed strange - almost elitist, but still a fan of Craig. It was a weird interview.

Mooshki said...

Interesting, CDAN's own Adrianna Costa interviewed Stana. Too bad Adrianna is so darned discrete or we could get all the juicy dirt from her. :)

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Clues fit Castle better. Katic fits "television and film actress" better than Torv. Fillion fits "mostly television" better than Jackson.

yellow said...

Castle is a bubble show.
The top new shows are The Fringe, and Mentalist. Only The Fringe has 2 foreign leads. Joshua has a lot more clout than Fillion, and could get away with that outburst. Besides, those watching Fringe might noticed that the leads have the least possible number of scenes together since the middle of the show.

Mooshki said...

As Cheryl said, both Fringe and Castle have about the same number of viewers. Castle is on the bubble because it's on a higher-rated network.

sunnyside1213 said...

I have to go with the Fringe guess. Josh has been around awhile and I can see him getting fed up with diva crap. Remember all the stuff that went down on Dawson's Creek? Lots of drama behind the scenes. wish I could have been a fly on the wall to see her face. Bet it was priceless.

bionic bunny! said...

wait, nathan was in a kilt and i missed it?

Mooshki said...

Bunny, you can watch it here!

yellow said...

Fringe is a top 20 show every week both in numbers, and in the demo. Castle never was. Castle would be even more in danger of cancellation on Fox than it is on ABC, Fox is the #1 network in the demo.

Princess Buttercup said...

I am completely in favor of a well-deserved outburst but why do people have to use the c word? It is just a little too much. B*&^% and whore are not nearly as offensive for some reason.

Mooshki said...

Yellow, I definitely give you that Fringe is a bigger success than Castle, I just think Castle could still very well be called a "popular" show.

sunnyside1213 said...

Mooshki, thanks. He is so adorable.

BinkyM said...

Are people here unaware that Nathan Filion is gay? He walks sthe streets of NYC openly affectionate with his boyfriend. I'd thought this was common knowledge. Years ago, it was Tuc Watkins from "One Life to Live." What a sexy pair they made!

BinkyM said...

Just checking: the "Fringe" male lead is "extremely popular on this site"? I guess I've missed all the excitement.

Mooshki said...

Nya nya nya, I can't hear you! (Fingers in ears.)

Miranda said...

@BinkyM Straight, gay, bi, or other, Nathan Fillion remains the sexiest of bitches. SWOON. He's right up there with my ridiculously placed crush on Dan Savage!

yellow said...

Castle average demo is worse than Surviving Suburbia, and Samantha Who?. If that is a popular show, then Dawn Ostroff at CW might have a job for you.

DNfromMN said...

Binky - photos or it didn't happen.

He's never really pinged my gaydar

Idiot Watcher said...

It's Shenae Grimes and Dustin Milligan. Both Canadian. Both on 90210. I think it's safe to say Shenae's a twat (both on AND off set) and I could see him calling her out on it. In fact, her diva 'tude hasn't been much of a secret, and it's common knowledge that the crew and cast hate her.

Idiot Watcher said...

Sorry. Got carried away. I can picture it happening in my head, but just doesn't fit all the clues. Must be two others for this blind, but don't think my version didn't happen! :)

Stardust said...

Yellow, you know and I both know FOX is #1 demo because it's American Idol time. But I love your Dawn Ostroff joke!

Idiot Watcher said...

BTW, Robin Tunney's not foreign born, so it's not the Mentalist. I would vote for Fringe, but is JJ really that popular around these parts?

Mooshki said...

I know demos are the new big thing, but if any 4 CW shows put together pulled Castle's ratings, Ostroff would be doing somersaults.

shazzzba said...

THEY'RE EITHER GAY OR SLUTS...SO IT'S 50/50...I'D RATHER THEY BE GAY...CAN'T STAND A MALE HO

Mooshki said...

Does Dustin Milligan have any fans here?

linabug2002 said...

I think its quite stupid to say Joshua jackson and Anna Torv. First of all, the show has stopped filming and second of all, I recall Anna and Josh sitting next to each other at Paley. That's crap.

Stardust said...

Mooshki - demo's aren't 'the new thing' been around for ages. But there's a lot of grumbling about Nielsen these days, and they way they get their #s and where they get their #s. That being said, ANOTHER GOOD OSTROFF JOKE!! (although GG and ANTM combined probably would have approximately the same # as Castle)

Liz said...

What about that new show "Southland" with Ben Mackenzie? Is he foreign-born?

Bodie said...

hey linabug2002

calling people stupid for taking a guess at a meaningless blind just makes you look like a jerk.

that's not crap.

WBotW said...

You know... as someone who knew Josh in high school I gotta say I can't picture him talking to Anna Torv like that. Seriously; if he were going to go off and insult her he'd do it with a bit more sarcasm and biting intelligence. I mean, it's always possible he's lost a few brain cells along the way, but I can't see him saying that to anyone! It's just so... blah.
Now. Dustin and Shenae? Oh hell yeah! I can definitely picture the whole thing going down, plus they're the right age for that particular sort of verbal diarrhea.
And if I'm wrong and it IS Josh...dude, the next time I run into that boy in Kits I'm going to ask him wtf happened LOL!

Mooshki said...

I know demographics have been around for ages, but it seems like only the past year or so that I've heard the word "demos" used as much as, or more than, "ratings." I know with pvrs and online viewing, the whole system is up in the air.

From what I can tell, GG is 2-3 million, ANTM is 3-4 and Castle is 10 in the Nielsens. I'm sure the GG/ANTM demos would crush Castle, because their viewers are mostly youngsters. I still pigheadedly believe that 10 million viewers counts as popular. :)

mngddess said...

Nathan Fillion is a God on CDAN?? I don't even know who he is and I read this blog all the time. Could someone refresh me, please?

WBotW said...

Nathan Fillion = God
It's true :D

He was Mal in Firefly/Serenity; Captain Hammer in Dr Horrible; Castle in Castle

Mooshki said...

Mngddess, here's the post where we discovered our mutual Fillion love.

His big role was as Captain Malcolm 'Tight Pants' Reynolds on Firefly. He also was the bad guy on a season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and was on Desperate Housewives last season. Castle is his new show - it just had a short run, and probably won't be renewed. :(

Mooshki said...

Or maybe I was wrong about that. This is encouraging! (Matt Roush writes for TV Guide.)

Matt Roush: No worries on Castle. It's not exactly a breakout hit, but it will do, and ABC needs a repeatable, reliable show like this in its stable. And with a little nurturing, it could become an even better show. (Without question, Nathan Fillion is a TV star.)

ardleigh said...

Can I say Castle too? Mostly because I can't stand to watch it because of her?

jagerlilly said...

From what I hear, Castle is on the bubble. Bummer, cuz I love the show. Anyway, I think that takes it out of the running for this BI.

BinkyM said...

@Mooshki: I hate to break it to you, but last week, "Castle" had a 2.1 in the 18-49 demo, so I wouldn't hold onto that 10 million figure.

(I haven't seen that show; it looks so "Murder, She Wrote," with a cute guy in the lead. Is it?)

Kristen Lopez said...

I immediately thought of Robin Tunney because I'd heard before she's a bitch but she's not foreign born. I'm sticking with Simon Baker and The Mentalist...are there any other female leads perhaps, this is just screaming at me.

KellyLynn said...

I think Castle is more like Moonlighting than Murder, She Wrote.
Anyway, I like that guess as well as any of them, and Nathan Fillion is more of a fixture around here than Joshua Jackson, so I'm going with it.

Mooshki said...

From TVGuide.com last week:
Castle soared 19 percent to flirt with 10 mil.

Miss X said...

jumping on the Castle train since Nathan is so poplular here. Not sure if I could choose between him and JJ.

B626 said...

I don't care if Mr. Fillion is light on his toe's he's still my No.1 fantasy material.
Castle's only problem holding it back in ratings is the casting of Stana Katic. Not too believable as a love interest or as a gruff NYC detective-no wonder Nathan's chewing her ass out behind the scenes.

Moxie said...

Thanks for the quote from Roush, that is good news indeed. I love Fillion on Castle, he walks the fine line between annoyingly smug and adorable. I probably couldn't stand to be around a guy like Castle every day, but once an hour on my tv every week is perfect. ;)

Moxie said...

er, I meant once a week for an hour on my tv...

Janelle said...

Ummm...has anyone else ever heard the gay rumours re Nathan?? Never heard that before, and just wondering if it's something common that only I have missed. Not that I'd believe it even with pictures, seeing as how I'm his imaginary girlfriend and all.

Mooshki said...

I could see him being bi, but I always thought he was a bit of a pussy hound.

*girl said...

Okay, I'm clearly late to the party. As I've stated before, I've totally party kissed Joshua Jackson and that was due to a friend who had a close working relationship with him for a few years. Though I'm surprised at the use of the C-word, I couldn't totally see JJ going off on someone if they were disrespecting people on set - ESPECIALLY the crew members. He's stated before that he appreciates their work ethic a whole lot more than a lot of actors he's worked with.

All I'm saying is that it totally could be him.

NYC2008 said...

LOVE THIS ACTOR!
He has my respect!

David D. said...

Nathan Fillion seems like a smart, funny, sexy guy--but I get absolutely no gay/bi vibe from him whatsoever. (Sigh.)

shakey said...

Ent - please, please reveal this one in July. Please? Whomever this is - I have much respect for him. MUCH.

It would be a nice bonus if it was Nathan.

Dijea said...

Nathan was totally hot in the kilt. Leather too.

Its a toss up for me between Castle & Fringe. Watch both love both guys - both are big on CDAN. So.....I'm waiting for the next reveal.

hollase said...

Not a Fringe fan but LOVE Castle. It reminds me and my friends of Remington Steele way more than Moonlighting. Fillion is awesome. He deserves a hit-seems like a good actor.

That said, I totally get Castle for this one.

TFLive said...

After some quicky research, here are the main new shows (not already canceled) that I can think of along with lead male and female actors and country of origin.

Mentalist - Simon Baker (Australia), Robin Tunney (US)
Fringe - Joshua Jackson (Canada). Anna Torv (Australia)
Eleventh Hour - Rufus Sewell (England), Marley Shelton (USA)
Lie to Me - Tim Roth (England), Kelli Williams (USA)
Castle - Nathan Fillion (Canada), Stana Katic (Canada)


So out of that we are left with Fringe and Castle. Of those two, Fringe is a top 20 show that has already been renewed for a second season. Castle is on the bubble and Stana is mostly an unknown with very minor movie roles. However, Anna Torv has no movies roles, just Australian TV roles until Fringe introduced her to US audiences.

So if generous with definition of B-/C+ in favor of Stana and "popular" show then all that is left is the Castle leads.

TFLive said...

BTW, any chance of any juicy details on exactly what set off that cool tirade from the male lead? Always nice to hear stories of egomaniac stars being put in there place.

doxie said...

i didn't see this mentioned above - but Castle does air on Monday nights and this blind was posted on a Monday - could be a clue. I think Fringe airs on Tuesdays?

Beth said...

I don't know what Castle is, but I do watch Fringe, so I'll go with

Anna Torv and John Noble (co-star, also an Aussie). Maybe Joshua Jackson.

I hope it's not true though.

Idiot Watcher said...

I think in order to solve this we have to assume that Enty took some serious liberties here. I mean, it obviously must involve someone super popular on this site, so I gather it's Nathan Fillion, although to be honest, I read this blog everyday and was blissfully unaware that some of you are so obsessed. Okay, fine. It's him. But it's a stretch to say that Castle is popular. I am a big TV person, used to make my living in that industry, I'm practically married to my TiVo, and I had NEVER heard of that show until yesterday. It seems I'm not the only one. So, I think we accept that's the answer because nothing else fits at all, and that at least fits a teensy bit.

Rocket Queen said...

I totally don't get the Nathan F thing at all. Like at all. Of course, I don't get the Joshua Jackson thing either - his skin pallor always looks so "I don't eat vegetables".
WBotw - I'm in Vancouver- does that Dustin dude live in Kits during the off-season?

Mooshki said...

'his skin pallor always looks so "I don't eat vegetables".'

LOL!

WBotW said...

@ Rocket Queen

I have no clue where Dustin lives, but when Josh isn't working he spends a lot of time in Kits. I used to run into him on 4th, always when I was in a huge rush to get from A to B. He never got uppity... always had a few minutes to catch up.


@*girl
I totally agree with you that he would stand up for the crew without any hesitation. He's always had a huge respect for the people behind the scenes who work so freaking hard to make television/movies great. The only reason I had a hard time seeing him doing this is because of the wording. But hey, the acting industry changes a lot of people and I remember hearing a lot about him overdoing it in the party arena for a while there. Maybe he burned a few brain cells, lol.

textkitten said...

Rocket Queen:

You must watch the 'Firefly' series. He is just adorable!!!! Gay, straight, dropping C-bombs...I care not. He is just completely yummy.

linnea said...

Alright, I dont know if this is just me cause im watchin the show right now, and I HATE to say it cause i love it (and her) but couldnt it be true blood?

I dont really know any goss about those stars, but its kind of new (second season not out yet) and we have written about liking it before, especially the male lead, and I think both stars are born outside the US.

Rocket Queen said...

textkitten - I'll keep an open mind. I also haven't seen 'Castle' :) Of course, I'm with Lainey and lovelovelove Ed Westwick, who most of you seem to dislike - different strokes, I guess!

Rocket Queen said...

BTW - Linnea, that's a great guess, but not sure who the male would be. Not her boyfriend, so who else is foreign? Also, Anna doesn't really seem the bitch type...

linnea said...

Well, it would be Stephen Moyer - he was born in Essex.

linnea said...

Oh, but nevermind! I didnt see its supposed to be a network show, not a cable one.

Thank god, I was so worried it fit too well! Now I can go back to admiring her/drooling over him...

Rocket Queen said...

But isn't she dating Moyer in real life?

Clint said...

I think this is totally Joshua Jackson (Vancouver born) and Anna Torv (Australian) from Fringe.

B626 said...

Nathan also swooped down on the last two seasons of 2 Guys and a Girl and became Traylor Howard's love interest to the horror of the other 2 male leads Ryan Reynolds and Richard Ruccalo.
That's when I got hooked on him, big time.

I'm almost hoping Castle is cancelled that way he can be available for the aged up next installment of Indiana Jones I hear he is being looked at for it, hard.That's what screwed Tom Selleck out of the 1st one,series commitment.Kick LeBouf to the curb.

And don't forget that Nathan's finished filmed part as the dumped boyfriend in Zellweger's 'New in Town'
ended up last minute on the cutting room floor because test audiences did not accept that Renee would actually leave him for Harry Connick Jr. Can you blame them?

Mooshki said...

Ooh, B626, what a great Indie he would make! He has the exact right kind of charm.

Ells said...

I love Nathan Fillian. Castle seems like a good guess. I also really like that show, but I don't know how it's doing in the ratings. I've never seen Fringe, so no thoughts on that.

shakey said...

He would make a good Indy. But he'd make a better Jack T. Colton (Romancing the Stone).

Beth said...

shakey , NF would make a fabulous Jack T. Colton (Romancing the Stone)! I was thinking the same thing when it was announced they were remaking it (not that I want it remade as I love the original).

Pauper Princess said...

Hi! New to the blog.

So, what's the answer? Or, do I need to look somewhere else for it?

linnea said...

I can´t believe that! Stealing someones bunny is pretty low. :(

Mooshki said...

Pauper Princess, we don't get answers to most of the blinds. The fun is in the guessing. Enty does post "reveals" twice a year of some of the blinds. The next reveal day will be July 4th. He did promise that this particular blind would be one of the ones revealed, yay!

shakey said...

Beth I had no idea they were remaking that movie. If it isn't cast yet - they should consider Nathan.

Tal said...

What a load of crap - there is NO way either Stana OR Nathan would act that way. Why do hateful people spread such stupid rumours? And why are others so quick to believe them?

AJ said...

Ya, I'm not buying the Fillion or Jackson either.

I think True Blood is a good guess... the guy who plays Jason Stackhouse is an Aussie, and Paquin is a Canadian. I can totally see an Aussie dropping the C word, just because it's more of a culturally accepted term.

Do we know what set this is reference to yet?

Katie said...

I doubt it is Anna Torv. First of all, Anna is a brand new actress who has done more work in Australia than US and she is not famous at all. I don't see her on magazine covers so its impossible for her to be a diva (not to mention, Fringe is not exactly a "big" show anyways. Was this ever revealed?

Katie said...

I forgot, its says that she is a television AND film actress. This is Anna's first ever US gig so its NOT her. I also think, judging from how well Josh and Anna's chemistry is on screen and the fact that fans love them together, its not them.

Katie said...

BTW, people are forgetting this, too

he is also probably a B-/C+ mostly television actor

See, MOSTLY television. Dawson's creek was Josh's only TV gig and he was a movie actor before DC came along.
