Today's Blind Items

This out of control funny man B list movie actor is engaged to be married to a celebrity. What his fiance' doesn't know though is that our funnyman actor got married about two years ago when he was drunk in Vegas. He kept meaning to get it annulled but never did. Meanwhile since it happened he has lost track of the woman he married that night. His people are searching frantically for her so they can get the marriage annulled before his fiance' finds out about it and before he gets married to her.

I would say Tom Arnold, but he's not B list. also he's marrying a non-celeb. back to the drawing board.

ms snarky said...

Russell Brand? or is he too Brit for this to apply?

ms snarky said...

the more I read it, the more I think Russell Brand is a perfect fit.

Chatty Cricket said...

ZOMG, Ms Snarky it's TOTALLY Russell Brand!

Moxie said...

"out of control funny man" makes me think of Andy Dick, but I know he's not the right answer. :)

So, who else could be considered out of control and typically cast as the funny guy?

Ice Angel said...

Snarky! Great answer!!! LOL!

Green Wave Gal said...

Chris Tucker?

Dave Chappelle? he's more tv...

Jim Carrey?

West End Girl said...

Snarky, I think you're on the money. He's certainly been classed as out of control previously especially regarding the phone calls he made with Jonathan Ross.

RocketQueen said...

Totally Brand, though Snarky beat me to it!

Nosey Parker said...

ITA Ms Snarky!!!

sunnyside1213 said...

Poor Katie. Hope they find the missing bride.

Spicy Pumpkin said...

I like the Brand guess...what about Jamie Kennedy?

warmislandsun said...

I love this blind. Too funny. So very Britney.

Pat said...

I think Brand has been sober for years, so two years ago doesn't fit.

Julie said...

immediately i thought jim carrey.

Pookie said...

ooohhhh...i like the jamie kennedy guess...but wow, the russell brand guess is growing on me...

Green Wave Gal said...

I don't think Jamie Kennedy is B-list.

ms snarky said...

my bad, Russell Brand says he's been drug and alcohol free for 7 years. If that's actually true, and he hasn't had a little fall off the wagon, then he's out. darn it.

Karmen said...

Russell Brand FTW

Spicy Pumpkin said...

Would he be C list? I don't think he'd be A-list, but his spots on The Cleveland Show, Ghost Whisperer, among other things seems to be B-ish. His imdb: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005085/

Although I don't remember if he and JLH are engaged.

lilbitsolo said...

Dax Shepard? Is that his name? the one dating Kristen Bell.......

Lori said...

"Drunk in Vegas" is a Katy Perry song so maybe it's just a reference to his fiancee.

G said...

Jamie Kennedy "out of control"? I don't think he ever was. Though I would find it ironic if it were Russell Brand ...

Shut up and put your money where your mouth is
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas
Get up and shake the glitter off your clothes now
That's what you get for waking up in Vegas ...

From Katy Perry's single "Waking up in Vegas"

Cindy said...

Jim Carrey was my first thought.

califblondy said...

Best advice from a good friend when I go to Vegas...

Don't get arrested.

Don't get married.

ms snarky said...

are Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy engaged?

sunnyside1213 said...

Slightly off topic, but the movie The Hangover is about Vegas and is hysterical.

sunnyside1213 said...

I don't think Jim and Jenny are engaged.

ms snarky said...

I still think Russell Brand is the best fit. But, for some options -

Vince Vaughan just got married, so he's out. Unless there was some quick work done and the blind is a few days out of date.

Is Owen Wilson engaged to anybody?

or Seth Green? isn't he dating someone sort of celeb-ish?

ms snarky said...

ok. my second choice is Seth Green / Clare Grant. If I can't have Russell and Katy.

emeraldcity said...

It says funny man, B list movie actor.

Is Brand a B list movie actor?

Paisley said...

Russell Brand is British. Can non-citizens get married in Las Vegas without a lot of extra paperwork?

Tenley said...

Jim Carrey can't possibly be less than A list with his megamillion blockbusters.

Mel said...

What about Sacha Baron Cohen?

Melody said...

If it helps with his "B" status, I've never even heard of Russell Brand. But then I'm fairly dim and haven't heard of most people.

MCH said...

This is a good one. I thought Jim Carrey too but I don't think he and Jenny McCarthy are engaged. I don't think they plan to marry from what I've seen in interviews. The Russell Brand guess is a good one...

busybee said...

Hmmm Russell's sober. So it's not him.

Out of control? What about Johnny Knoxville's friend? the one that was on the rehab show?

Dixie said...

Robin Williams

Bella said...

What comes around goes around.

flwrgurl said...

My first guess was Jim Carrey too

Casey said...

Russell Brand is also HUGELY upfront about his life and past exploits - I can't imagine if he had been married it wouldn't have worked it's way into his act at some point.

sandman said...

artie lang, oh wait, you said funnyman, nevermind

ballyhoo. said...

russell is such a good guess for this one! and didn't he host the vma's two years ago in vegas?

cdanluva said...

What about Robin Williams?
He was divorced in 2008. He went to rehab around that time as well.

Jamie's Girl said...

I was thinking more like Dane Cook, or someone of that slovenly caliber. Russell Brand is douchey, but not B.

My first thought was also Carrey.

Brand might be a good guess but Katy Perry is a singer, not just a celeb.

ms_wonderland said...

I thought Sasha Baron Cohen as well, but not sure if the 'out of control' fits him in RL. It fits the characters he plays though.

SBC and Isla have been engaged a very long time, supposedly so she can convert to Judaism. Does it take so long? I think it's Sasha.

C said...

Think it's Baron-Cohen too. Brand doesn't seem out of control - he's very settled down at the moment and has allegedly been sober for ages. Plus he isn't as prominently a movie actor as Baron-Cohen is - Brand seems to have just had one or two bit-parts.

linnea said...

argh! First i thought Brand was SUCH a good guess, then I read that he has been sober, then I thought "well hell, i am sure people fall of the wagon every now and then" and now i just dont know!

Alice D Millionaire said...

My main issue with the Brand guess is calling him a B list movie actor. That just seems too high.

crila16 said...

Russell Brand is NOT funny and he's absolutely disgusting, but I guess the masses consider him a funny man. I definitely wouldn't consider him a B lister either...more like a C. Anyway, it all fits otherwise...so my guess is Russell Brand.

LauraM said...

Isn't Jim Carrey more like A list? and is he really out of control? Don't think it's him.

miss said...

I would think Jim Carrey and SBC are for sure A list..

Katja said...

Ok, If I married a B lister in Vegas I'd be talking about it. Either she doesn't remember or this is bogus. I mean, think about it... unless it were Artie Lange it would be a great story to tell.

@ Paisley:

A foreign-born person can get married in Vegas without hassle. I married a hot French guy last year in Vegas and all we had to do was get a marriage license which takes about 30 minutes.

But... we're not together anymore. It only lasted 3 weeks.

But Vegas was fun =)

So much for the sanctity of marriage, eh?

Mango said...

does "out of control funny man" mean that he is out of control or is comedy is? From what I've heard, IRL Baron-Cohen isn't a wild and crazy guy and he's quite serious in particular about his faith.

Spicy Pumpkin said...

scratch Jamie Kennedy--if it were him, the blind would say movie and tv actor, or just tv actor...

Anyone who gets a marriage license in Las Vegas is listed online. You can do a name search very easily, and they're all public record as long as you know the legal name of one participant. Check your guesses!

chestnut-red said...

The very first "out of control" movie actor I thought of was Robin Williams. His comedy is truly out of control, but I wouldn't call him B-list...he's won an Academy Award for Good Will Hunting and has garnered several other acting awards.

WineGirl X said...

I've been married in Vegas a few times. I remember being surprised that I didn't even have to show any ID. I thought.. gee.. I can marry off all my friends in proxy!

Here's the link to the marriage search:

I would think it would be easy to get an annulment because the non-famous "wife" wouldn't be there to contest it.
