Today's Blind Items

This former A list television actor and former B list movie actor is now on a hit cable television show, but he is probably just a B- now. Big, big name recognition though. He is married to an actress. Anyway, he recently has been sporting bruises all over his body. When his friends asked how he got them, our actor said it was from a new kick boxing regimen. Actually though they are a result of his wife toppling a full bookcase on our actor after she caught him passed out drunk on their living room floor. He had told her he was sober now.

chevy chase?

Lady J said...

OH MY GOD! No clue need to think about this for a minute.

Lady J said...

Alec is not married and Chevy is on a network show not cable.

JW said...

David Duchovny.

Kristen S. said...

Daggone it, Chris Noth fits it all execpt the married part.

Adventurous Kate said...

David Duchovny was my first thought. Love Californication.

RocketQueen said...

Duchovny

rdmtimp said...

Baldwin isn't married and "30 Rock" is network (NBC) not cable.

Duchovny fits - former A list TV (from X Files days), B list movie, now on cable show (Californication), married to Tea Leoni (who seems like she'd do something like this).

Dana said...

Duchovny was who first came to mind for me too.

Hello it's me... said...

Yeah same...I'm on the Duchovny train...

For those interested: He did a podcast interview with ESPN's Bill Simmons on Monday I believe.

littlemanwhatnow said...

ted danson?

chihuahuense said...

kevin bacon, wait is he on tv?

Cupcake Cutie said...

Jumping on the Duchovny train.. Though I'm not the first woman to do that.. ;)

Ryan said...

David Duchovny FOR THE WIN

Cheryl said...

Duchovny, and this one was way too easy.

Casey said...

Duchovny wasn't in rehab for drinking though - it was sex rehab.

Lisa said...

Rob Lowe?

Harriet Hellfire said...

Yeah, Duchovny was the first name that popped up...trying to think of actors on other cable hits but can't think of anyone that fits.

Cindy said...

ENTY! what do I have to donate to get that flashing ad off of here -- that thing is gonna cause someone to have a fit!

On a calmer note -- my first thought was Kevin Bacon too, but I don't think he qualifies for the A list tv actor thingy so I really got nuttin but air.

sunnyside1213 said...

Hate to be boring, but Duchovny is just obvious.

PDMan said...

littlemanwhatnow might be onto something with Ted Danson. Isn't he on "Damages" now?

James Aurus said...

Well, Duchonvy will be tonight on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, let's see if something comes out

selenakyle said...

Duchovny came to mind immediately.

Erin said...

What about Bill Paxton? Enty's "Big, big name recognition," could be a nod to "Big Love."
Is his wife an actress?

RJ said...

I love Duchovny, too, so I hope it's not him, but lots of stuff does fit. Maybe the sex addiction is triggered by drunken binges. Many addicts have more than one addiction - a main addiction and a secondary addiction, usually alcohol, that they use to "blame" for lapsing into their main addiction. "I'd have never shot up, but I was drunk." "I'd have never slept with her/him/them, but I was drunk." "I'd have never bet the housepayment on a football game, but I was drunk."

Erin said...

But I have to admit that Duchovny was my first thought, too.

Thomas James/Patricia Arquette

To shake it up I'm tossing out Corbin Bernsen or Edward James Olmos.

Barbara said...

What went through my head was Danny Devito.

RJ said...

Ooooh!! Barbara, I like the Devito guess. Somebody different, and he fits the clues well, too. I'd say he is a bigger name than Duchovny.

Apple said...

I think Mari Cruz nailed it. Patricia Arquette does not take fools lightly.

Wil said...

Can you imagine Mary Steenburgen toppling a book case?? The mental image is hilarious!! So I don't think it is Ted Danson .. It would just simply take Mary too long to do the deed!

On the other hand Tea ...

rdmtimp said...

@Mari Cruz/Apple
Read the blind - it says the actor is "former A list TV actor". Thomas Jane was never a regular on a series prior to Hung, so he doesn't fit.

I'm staying with Duchovny, though Danson is a good guess.

L said...

I had thought Duchovny too, but now I'm LOVING the Danny DeVito guess! Remember a few years ago when he showed up drunk on The View? Rhea Perlman is a tough cookie, she could do that. BUT...was he only a former B-list movie actor? Wasn't he A-list in the "Throw Momma..." and "Twins" days?

Don't think Thomas Jane fits -- when was he A-list TV?

Erin said...

I'm on the Devito train now. I love Rhea so I hope she doesn't get in trouble for it, though I don't condone violence.

Rod said...

my first thought was Kevin Bacon too. Is he on TV now??

Rod said...

RocketQueen said...

I don't understand why people are suggesting Devito - is he currently on some cable TV show neither I nor IMDB know about?
It last mentions a show called It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia but his character arc ended in 2009.

rdmtimp said...

Bacon isn't on a cable show now.

"It's Always Sunny.." is supposed to run for 2 more years, so Devito might still fit (though I can't imagine him using a kick-boxing regimen as an excuse).

RJ said...

"It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is coming back, and he's still going to be a part of it. Plus, he's one of the creators/producers of the show. It's a big cable hit, both with the coveted young demographic and with the critics. Well, some critics. It's kind of a love it or hate it kind of show.

renastar23 said...

DeVito is still on sunny.

nunaurbiz said...

Damn, was loving the Thomas Jane guess, but I agree he's never been A list anything. Not even name recognition! (Though I'm writing a role for him right now, tee hee hee)

abby said...

listen up ladies and gents. for danny devito to tell everyone he has bruises from a new kick boxing regimen is laughable.

I am on the duchovny train. I don't know if he's got alchy problems, but as someone else said above, people often have more than one addiction. and, he might have been channeling his sex addiction into a booze addiction. plus, tea must be at the end of her rope from all of it.

Cancan said...

To me, "big, big" name recognition means it's someone my dad would know. He would know Devito, not Duchovny.

MadLyb said...

I'm out of the loop, because my first thought was Alan Alda. I remember seeing him in a cast recently.

Nathan said...

it seems fairly obviously a reference to ted danson, who was in that parenthood movie making him a b-list film actor and fits in every way, except that damages is on the verge of being cancelled so it seems unlikely that it would be considered a hit show. enty may be unaware of the fact that its about to be canceled as it used to be a very hit show

Apple said...

bleh i still think Arquette will put a boot up Tom Jane's ass if he falls off the wagon.

RJ said...

Abby, I've been fully on board for the Devito train, but I just had a mental picture of him kickboxing. Still, he's a funny guy. I could see him saying it as a joke.

Mango said...

First thought: David Duchovny.

Icecat said...

ITA with Abby. Seriously can anybody picture Devito kick-boxing?? No. I really can't.

Duchovny FTW!

Keelia said...

What about Chris Noth? "Big, big name recognition" = Mr. Big?

traceface said...

Sorry to come spoil the fun everyone, but has anyone seen the BG blind item for today? Because the answer on that one is pretty clearly Duchovny and Tea (for being divorced), so wouldn't that make them unlikely for this one? I thought so anyways.

Chris Noth is on a network show, so it can't be him.

My vote is with Danny Devito.

Jill said...

I immediately thought of Ted Danson - 'Cheers' makes him A-list for TV; his movie credits would make him B for movies; and he's currently on 'Damages,' 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' (possibly the hit cable show Enty's referring to), and 'Bored to Death.'
