Today's Blind Items

What B- list movie and television comedy actor is currently having to reshoot many scenes from a recent movie. He has been doing so many drugs on his film that he has wildly different looks from one scene to the next depending on when it was shot. It has become so bad that more scenes are being written into the movie for other actors in an attempt to create a story without using many of our comic actor's scenes and story line.

Steve Carrell?

Saoirse said...

I don't think that he would qualify as B-.

Syd said...

Seth Rogen?

MontanaMarriott said...

Why not?
He is in a franchise, Get Smart and he is on an Emmy award winning TV show as an actor and producer.

Anywayz it's just a guess.

empyrios said...

Jack Black?

i'm taking the "wildly" reference as some sort of clue but i have a tendancy to read too much into things ;)

linnea said...

Yeah - I think Seth is a great guess. I also still think he was the answer to that blind about the guy who lost a lot of weight doing too much coke... :) That one never got revealed, right?

MontanaMarriott said...

Great guesses on Jack and Seth but have they done anything on TV?

dana said...

my first guess was steve carrell, too and i have no idea why. it would make me sad if true!

wildflower said...

Seth Rogan was on freaks and geeks.

vamp said...

seth was on freaks and geeks and undeclared

wildflower said...

Oops - Rogen.

Ellen said...

I like the Seth Rogan guess, too. He has lost a lot of weight and I could see that leading to a continuity problem in a movie.

white lorelei said...

My first guess was a Seth, but Seth Green. The blue mohawk look always made me wonder if he was getting a little goofy.

Steve Carrell is way higher than B-.

Pookie said...

i'm jumpin on the seth train. (for tv, he was on 'freaks and geeks').

wildflower said...

According to IMDB Rogen is currently filming (Green is too but a tv show). I'm on the Rogen bandwagon too. I also think Carrell is too big of a name for B-.

Angela said...

Rogen got his start on TV but is famous because of his movies. And he can definitely open a movie on his own name, which would make him a B or B+.

David Spade is currently shooting an Adam Sandler vehicle.

empyrios said...

Black's done a bunch of tv over the years but i guess he's not known for both really

Rogen's probably the liklier culprit

emailchallenged said...

the guy who was in that aptow movie with the voice of the gossip girl and dating dax (he goes to hawaii to get away from the break-up,and see's her there. anyone?!). both names slip but he's on a tv show and does movies.

nancer said...

can't be steve carrell. he isn't B-.
i hate seth rogen but i'm not even sure HE'S B-.

MontanaMarriott said...

Oh I had no clue Seth Rogen was on TV. Thanks, okay then I will change my answer to him then and also because as mentioned earlier he was the guess of the BI in which the actor was doing coke in order to loose weight and make him a box office leading man

jw12 said...

email- Jason Segal who is currently filming 2 movies.

Kate the Great said...

Jason Segel! I think that's a good guess.

SkittleKitty said...

I agree with the Segel guesses. He's looked like quite a mess in most of the pics I've seen of him.

linnea said...

nooo.... :( something about him just... i think he is quite attractive. And I am not too proud of it.

Jasmine said...

Rogen or Segel seem like the best guesses. More Rogen than Segel, since he's been in more hit movies and I do feel he was the answer to the blind about the actor taking coke to lose weight. fyi-BOTH Rogen and Segel were on Freaks and Geeks, but Segel has more TV presence with HIMYM

Idiot Watcher said...

Segel for the win.

warmislandsun said...

Bothe Segel and Rogen were on Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. Though, I can't see either of them being B-. Butm I can see both of them doing drugs. I just didn't think either of them were stupid enough to let drugs interfere with their careers. I truly think we haven't got this one yet.

SG said...

When does Enty start revealing blinds? :)

Karmen said...

Doubt it's Rogen. One movie's in pre-production, and the one that's filming is a voice over.

If I had to choose between the two, I'd go with Segel.

Karmen said...

@ SG - July 4th. Just 3 more days!

Lizzy said...

Uh oh. Segel doesn't look good here. http://www.aceshowbiz.com/images/events/ALO-010251.jpg

I really like him, too.

LauraM said...

I say David Spade or Jason Segel.

nunaurbiz said...

I sure hope it's not Jason Segel. I'm with you, linnea.

Besides, would Enty write a bad blind on someone who does full frontal male nudity?!?!?!?!?! Say it ain't so, Enty!!!!! (on Saturday!)

Karmen said...

Lizzy - that picture was taken on 2/22/08. This BI says currently.

Sporky said...

My guess is Segel too. If true, it's a shame because I like him too!

lutefisk said...

I hope it is not Jason Segal, but since he is currently in both movies & How I Met Your Mother, he fits.

Little LoLo said...

I'm going to guess Tracy Morgan. He's in NYC filming with Sean William Scott and Bruce Willis and he has a pretty extensive history with substances. Just a thought! :)

figgy said...

Steve Carrel is way too stable to do drugs. And higher than B- too.

Little LoLo said...

Just a quick add-on...movie is called A Couple of Dicks...picture of Michelle Tractenberg in the random photos below

Karmen said...

Tracy Morgan makes sense, but he isn't a B- list movie actor, IMO.

Courtney said...

Rogen is at least a B+ as he's opened multiple movies now. And honestly, I'd put Segel at a B at least. Maybe it's because I just really don't want it to be either of them, but I just don't think it's one of them. I mean, Segel always looks like a mess. That's just kind of his charm. I like the Spade guess.

TheAM said...

what about Ryan Reynolds? He isn't A list yet, and did that 2 Guys, A Girl and a Pizza Place show in the 90s

blog hopper said...

What about Adam Brody? He's filming with Bruce Willis in NYC

Daria said...

I don't think it's Segel. There have been a number of photos released from the set of "Gulliver's Travels" (the film that he's currently working on) and he looks the same as he always does.

Jill said...

I hope it's not Jason Segel, I love him, and I think Enty really likes him as well. I'd consider him to be more B than B-, but who knows.

What about Jeremy Piven? I wish we had a network vs. cable clue.

HeyThere said...

How about John Krasinski? He's in NY shooting a movie with Meryl Streep & he looks like he's lost a lot of weight recently.

Jim said...

Throwing Bradley Cooper out here, who did that one sitcom Kitchen Confidential a few years back. He's looked a little rough lately (but certainly not unhealthy).

linoge1 said...

I say Piven.

Karmen said...

Kitchen Confidential didn't last that long. I wouldn't say that's B- list TV. He's also not in any projects that are filming right now, per IMDb.

I used to think Bradley Cooper was so hot, but he's been looking kinda gross lately.

Brett said...

Segel is way more likely than Rogen. Seth Rogen is higher than B- at this point.

I hope it's neither tho =[

I love them both

SG said...

I can't wait! Thanks Karmen!

I'm jumping on the Seth train. He says he doesn't like working out and all of that but somehow he lost an incredible amount of weight in a short period. I don't think he would be dedicated enough to actually work out and lose it.

Jill said...

What about Jason Lee? He's filming "A Couple of Dicks" right now.

DNfromMN said...

I am on the segal bandwagon. He looks have been really erratic on hymim this season. Rogen can open movies on his own meaning b+ at least.

Les Suckno said...

Jim Carrey is a junkie

Karmen said...

The Pivert doesn't have project that's in filming right now.

Hope it's not John Krasinski.

Miss X said...

My 1st thought was Segel but I really don't want it to be him. I don't think he's dumb enough to waste his career on drugs...the guy's on the line of A list if you look at his acting & writing.

So I'm going with Tracey Morgan. I also really like him but not as much as Jason!

Jade, That Girl said...

The first thought was Tracy, but I think he is more B list thing anything. Refuse to believe it's him or Jason Segel.

I like the Adam Brody guess a lot.

.S. said...

whiteloreleisaid...My first guess was a Seth, but Seth Green. The blue mohawk look always made me wonder if he was getting a little goofy.

"Getting"? Seth has always been a "little goofy". Which is why I love him soooooo much!

I don't think it's him, howevs.

libby said...

Of all the guesses thusfar, only David Spade would qualify as a B-. Everyone else is much higher.
Seth Rogan lost weight the wrong way, I agree, but this a different druggie.

J-Mo said...

David Spade always looks the same though, and he has for years.

amymarie said...

WTF?

Mooshki said...

Amymarie, it's just our resident troll. He just came out of hibernation, so he's particularly hungry for attention. :)

.S. Plus, don't you think Seth G. is just a MAJOR pothead? LOL! After all, he's bffs with Mila Kunis and Macaulay Culkin, and we know they walk around in a haze of smoke.

Ladies (and probably a few gents), it's clear that the only course of action is to kidnap Jason Segel and lock him away in an isolated cabin in the woods so he can detox. Do I have any volunteers to help me give him some tender loving care while he's recovering?

linnea said...

mooshki, if you ABSOLUTELY need someone to help you out I guess I could take the night shift.

Mooshki said...

I'll sign you up, Linnea. :)

RocketQueen said...

TheAM - Ryan Rynolds was going to be my guess, too, especially with the "wildly" (Van Wilder) reference. However, I now like Segal better for this, there was a blind a while back about him doing blow on the street outside a restaurant while waiting for his car to be pulled around by a valet. (at least it was thought to be him)

bionic bunny! said...

i noticed that jason segal seemed to have gained some weight over the past couple of years. i like him, but he has looked a bit puffy this past season.
spade always looks the same, as does green and reynolds.
seth rogen did have that huge weight loss and was looking pretty hot, but i don't know what he looks like now.

sunnyside1213 said...

Seth Rogan could have the body of a greek god, and I still wouldn't like him.

burnzie said...

what about michael cera for this one? he's done tv (arrested development) and has had b list success with superbad and nick and norah. he was in year 1 with jack black and he's been looking really strange lately. almost sickly...

linnea said...

stiffkittens - thanks for the detective work!

Aileen said...

i agree with DNfromMN.

In the newest season of How I Met Your Mother his looks change on every single episode. There's no continuity at all.
