Four For Friday

I don't really feel like posting anything terribly juicy because I am still in mourning over the whole John Hughes passing. However I have some light ones which really don't need to be blind but are still fun to guess.

#1 - At The Grove on Monday this former right on the cusp glasses wearing A list movie star and now a solid B in movies and television was walking with a woman past some tables set up outside a restaurant. At each table someone would stop him and want our actor to pose for pictures. Each table. He never stopped smiling and posed patiently for each person.

#2 - At the Four Seasons on Sunday this controversial magazine publisher had a multi-hour brunch while his bodyguard/driver never moved an inch from a separate table five feet away. When someone would walk up to the bodyguard he would talk and converse but his eyes never left the table of his employer.

#3 - Also at the Four Seasons on Sunday this former C list television actor with a very bad past drinking problem which basically got him booted from a hit network drama didn't touch a drop of alcohol even when it was offered to him.

#4 - At Chateau Marmont on Sunday an impromptu dinner party for 30 was held to honor this Olympic Gold medal snowboard winner and frequent skateboarder.

#5 - FYI - The grieving brother was also at The Four Seasons this past Sunday.

diatribes and dish said...

Jeff Goldblum for #1.

Hefner for #2.

selenakyle said...

*that's "your grief," sorry.

farmgirl said...

Yup - Just got Goldblum for 1 - you beat me to it diatribes!

farmgirl said...

Could 3 be Lane Garrison??

Lauren said...

Why is #4 a blind? Also, snowboarding has only been an Olympic sport since 2002, so there have only been two gold medalists! And only one of them is a pro skateboarder, so uh, that really narrows it down. Why is a dinner a secret? I don't get it.

AnonMom said...

Sorry you're so sad, Enty. :(

Jim said...

#3 sounds like Gary Dourdan although I think drugs were part of the problem too.

RocketQueen said...

#1 I was thinking Kiefer, just to throw something else out there.
#2 - Flynt.
#3 - could be anyone - regardless, good for him/her.
The others aren't terribly interesting, but that's okay :)

L said...

Jesse Metcalf for #3?

maggiemei said...

#1- I was thinking Zachary Quinto. He is quickly moving up to the A list with the Star Trek movies.

Judi said...

1. Zach Quinto is a good guess.
2. Flynt or Hef. Hard to say which.
3. Garrison.
4. Shawn White.
5. Jermaine.

Enty, here's a link to a lovely tribute to John from his pen pal, Alison:

#1 jeff goldblum is a good guess
#2 flynt ftw
#3 not sure. Good for him.
#4 shaun white
#5 jermaine jackson has enough money for the four seasons?

Sorry to hear you're taking this so hard Enty :( be sure to watch a john hughs marathon this weekend.

hello kitty said...

There are pictures of Denzel in glasses strolling around and posing with people.....

shakey said...

1. Seth Rogen
2. I'll go with Larry, because Hugh isn't exactly controversial.
3. ?
4. ?
5. I thought maybe it was John Hughes's brother, but he doesn't have one. I guess I'll go with Jermaine. Does he get paid to be interviewed on tv?

anita_mark said...

It's not Lane Garrison, he was already off Prison Break when he got in the accident and killed someone.

anita_mark said...

@Lauren,

He said they'd be easy, read the whole post first.

parissucksliterally said...

Denzel has won 2 Oscars. there is no way in hell in hell he is anything less than A list. Forever.

califblondy said...

Enty babydoll, it's tough to do it, but try to celebrate a good, productive life that gave so much to so many.

I don't know who #1 is, but I love him (and I've never cared much for Jeff Goldblum) Assholes who are rude to their fans, take note!

moxie said...

Jeff Goldblum was my first thought for #1 as well.

HautieTx said...

#1
How about Eric Roberts? He was on the cusp in the early 80's but screwed it all up. But has had better luck in the last 10 years with getting solid B list work. Plus I always see him in glasses...

libby said...

Jeff Goldblum is super cool! I love his appearances on Colbert!
But, honestly, I think he's in NY filming his Law & Order spin-off. That's why he's always on Colbert.
Although I want to believe it's him.
I think he's sexy as hell. Love me a tall thin man.

(Goldblum OUT!)

Mooshki said...

Libby, I'm SO with you on that one. :)

Moxie said...

Goldblum's L&O season finale airs tomorrow on USA, so he's been done with filming for a while now.

star_grades said...

I thought #3 would be Isaiah Washington?

tlimback said...

#3 is Andy Dick.

Kelley said...

My first thought for #1 was Simon Baker. It's a stretch for the A/B part, but he was in The Devil Wears Prada and every interview touts his wonderful smile.

sunnyside1213 said...

Simon Baker often is photographed in glasses. Is Jeff?

I like the Flynt guess.

Jermaine sounds right.

Tara said...

Love, love, love Jeff Goldblum. I hope he is #1.

Also, my first thought on #3 was Andy Dick. I see that tlimback thought the same thing. But, has AD gotten booted off any shows?
