Today's Blind Items

I guess this comic actor is A list. Primarily movies now. When I say he is A list, he is by definition in the sense he is top billed in movies, but I never think of him as more than a B or C. He has always come across as a guy's guy, but when he was in Europe a few weeks ago doing publicity for an old project, he made everyone call him by his female name and stayed at his hotel for four nights as a woman.

What? I can't wait to hear the thoughts on this one.

My first thought was Andy Dick, but he isn't in movies. I would think that it would have to be someone way out there though, because if they weren't word would have spread more quickly.

Dana said...

Simon Pegg?

Syko said...

Chevy Chase popped into my mind for some reason.

Krystal Heather said...

Jim Carey

shazzzba said...

I'M TOTALLY LOST ON THIS ONE....

Mooshki said...

Robin Williams?

Liz said...

Seth Rogen?

julien said...

@Krystal, I think you're right, Jim Carrey may have gotten very into his role for his new movie

lutefisk said...

Ben Stiller?

Apple said...

Does Will Ferral have anything out in the UK now?

Sounds like this is 1/2 a joke and 1/2 a real cross dresser.

Tenley said...

sounds like Jim Carrey to me

mom said...

jim carrey was first in my mind (not that that means anything)

mom said...

although chevy is in the random pics today.

Tenley said...

Jim Carrey wore in public Jenny McCarthy's one-piece swimsuit about a year ago and has had some rather kinky humor/gags/jokes all through the years (something about using a dildo on himself, for example, in Me Myself and Irene that seemed more improv and left in than scripted). And yeah he's also totally a guy's guy (Dumb and Dumber, for example, total gross-out Guy Film)

Cheryl said...

Edie Murphy, Chevina Chase, Jamie Carrey? (I have no idea)

rose said...

Jamie Foxx?

Vera Lynn said...

sacha baron cohen?

Jack Black? No clue.

Earthbaby Mama said...

Adam Sandler?

Catherine said...

Eddie Murphy was my first guess....

Princess Shyness said...

Mike Myers?

littlemanwhatnow said...

what about paul bart mall cop guy....he was in the king of queens and now he is doing movies. kevin something.

E said...

Tim Allen. Tool Time, anyone?

Totally "guy's guy" territory. Also, A list (can open and has opened movies on his own), but in 'star power' terms, really B list. I say it's him. Plus, he has a FREAKY past and even I don't think cross dressing on its own is that freaky, to be such a public person and do it in the way described, is a little odd.

Tenley said...

Well if it's not Carrie, then what about Ben Stiller?

Icecat said...

I agree TinselSass. I consider Jim Carrey A list.

My first thought was Dane Cook, but I don't think he has ever been top billed in movies...

I need to think on this some more!

Icecat said...

mmm I'm liking the Adam Sandler guess. He was very popular with great movies, but then they just kind of went to crap!

surfer said...

Wasn't Steve Carell (sp?) just in Europe with Tina Fey promoting their date movie?

Cecilia00 said...

Vince Vaughan?

And who was the guy Enty kept posting pictures of in Europe on a press tour?

peabee said...

Rob Schneider?

Ellin said...

Martin Lawrence?

Beth said...

Clooney?

Desiree said...

what about dane cook? He was a stand up, but i believe he does mostly movies now. Maybe i'm wrong.

RocketQueen said...

No idea, but I'm guessing it's someone who's single, otherwise Enty would have mentioned "married". That would eliminate Black, Stiller and Ferrell, right?

SkittleKitty said...

I thought Sandler first, though the phrase "primarily movies" says to me there was more than one TV gig in his past (and Sandler's only real TV was SNL, no?).
Tim Allen is also an interesting guess...

Mooshki said...

E, I think Tim Allen is a great guess!

Gracie said...

Dane Cook?

Liz's Box said...

Mike Meyers

J-Mo said...

Princess Shyness had it way back I'm sure. Mike Myers I'm thinking...

litterbox said...

Kellsey Grammer
LA CAGE

Eddie said...

doesn't this have to be tyler perry from aka madea?

Cindy said...

Mooshki, I cracked up thinking about hairy Robin Williams in a bra, lmao!

RJ said...

The first person that I thought of was Kevin James. He might be promoting Paul Blart: Mall Cop in Europe. He got his start in King of Queens, but he's just movies now. He did that one with Adam Sandler a few years ago, and wasn't he in Hitch, too? I think he probably is technically A list now, because of the huge (and inexplicable) success of Paul Blart, but I think of him as a B at the most, too. I bet he made one ugly woman, but I can see him doing it.

Ice Angel said...

Jon Cusack? His sister is in the random photos.

audieh_1 said...

I agree with the Mike Myers guess.

Robert said...

Mike Meyers used to do the Linda Richman character in Coffee Talk on SNL ("made everyone call him by his female name...") and Robin Williams was Mrs. Doubtfire; I don't know about other cross-dressing performances, but of this bunch, Tim Allen would make the ugliest woman by far!

blog hopper said...

this is just a joke, he wasn't being serious..he's a COMEDIAN!

jax said...

i don't really think of jim carrey as a man's man.

tim allen is good guess.

Susan said...

At first reading, I thought Adam Sandler.

I don't think of Robin Williams or Jim Carrey as a guy's guy. Sandler is totally one of the guys.

Cancan said...

Love the Kevin James guess, as he does star in movies now (sign of apocalypse) and used to do TV.

blondegossip said...

In addition to SNL, Adam Sandler was the thug cousin who came in thru the basement window on MTV's Remote Control gameshow.

Tully Mars said...

Could be Eddie Murphy - he likes the trannies

Merlin D. Bear said...

Jim Carrey.
Comic actor, started in film, moved to TV and made a name, then moved to pretty much exclusively movies.
Recent breakup with LTR McCarthy, when all figured they were in it for the long haul, no specific reason cited.
What's getting me is the reference to "publicity for an old project" - albeit he's not put out anything recently, he does have a new film coming out soon, in which he plays a gay man, co-starring Ewan McGregor as his love interest.
Easiest way to figure this one out would be to see who's in Europe doing publicity for an old project.

M said...

What about Eddie Izzard, folks?

L said...

I'm on the Kevin James train. He recently hosted the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Awards, and in one of the promos he was dressed up in drag, and I remember thinking that (even though they do a lot of madcap stuff in their promos) the drag stint seemed rather random and out of left field.

MadLyb said...

My first thought was Jim Carrey, then Dane Cook. I'm going with Carrey.

Nathan said...

some really stupid guesses here. chevy chase as an a-list movie actor? andy dick? eddie izzard as a man's man? it sounds like eddie murphy to me, who is always top billed but in low performing movies, making him a shaky A-list. and that red leather outfit from eddie murphy raw makes him a man's man

nunaurbiz said...

Tyler Perry ftw!

Margaret said...

Totally Carrey. He was in Europe promoting I love You Phillip Morris (old work) a few weeks ago. No wonder JM booted him.

Though my first thought was Robin Williams.

SpiN said...

DANE COOK!

annie said...

chris rock

A said...

Eddie Murphy....not sure it was done for a gag. If it was as a joke, I could see it being Sasha Baron Cohen. He REALLY gets into his roles.

Angela said...

Not Jim Carrey. EL wouldn't think of him as just B or C. Carrey was A all the way during the '90s and early '00s. Remember The Cable Guy or Bruce Almighty: he was at one time the best paid actor in all Hollywood.
Mike Meyers and Eddie Murphy have been the objects of gay rumors for years.

Let's focus a little on the "Primarily movies now", which means his movie career was second to his TV or stand-up career until two or three years ago. That's definitely a serious clue.

BTW, Couple Retreat was just released in France but Vince Vaughn definitely didn't bother to go here to make some promo. It was mostly a technical release (they have to play the movie in a couple of theaters to get some tax deductions when it's broadcast on TV).

studio gulag -- said...

Tim Allen

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

Dane Cook

kathrynnova said...

ok, i'm done. i can't read your site because the ads are too annoying and freeze up my computer and there are more everyday. it's no fun anymore.

headin back over to perez.

thanks for the laughs and the goss enty. best of luck to you.

**steps down from soapbox.

SkittleKitty said...

Enty would never consider Dane Cook A-list.

UofAZWildkitty said...

Has Tyler Perry ever been considered a man's man?

Selock said...

Dane Cook & Seth Rogen seem the best fits to me.

watcher said...

Can Tim Allen travel overseas? Years ago on the Johnny Carson show, Tim Allen said he couldn't get a passport because he had committed a serious felony when in his 20s.

bionic bunny! said...

eddie izzard is ALWAYS eddie izzard, and he's a "male tomboy" to quote himself. he's a transvestite, not gay.
i can see tim allen doing it as a joke, but not for real.

who's "method" these days?

dustin hoffman? no, that doesn't work.

i'm going w/ tyler perry.

Brainy said...

How is everyone missing this?!

Its Mike Myers.

He's trying to revive Austin Powers (yeah baby).

He is very out in TO, wearing women's caftans.

I think he only married Robyn to use Linda Richman (her mother) personality.

He is B/C to me. He was on SNL but known more for movies and Austin Powers was a man's man (for the man who trying too hard to pretend he isn't for the men)

luci skywalker said...

this screams Will Smith!!!!!!!

Selock said...

Ohhhh, Mike Myers is a great guess. I wouldn't think of him as A either, but since there was reluctance to call him that in the blind, it could really fit!

Barton Fink said...

Brainy and Selock, I'm with y'alls on this one. Although I can't imagine him being female-identified; the gossip was all that he was just plain old gay a while back, wasn't it.

Dane Cook. What a horrible thought -- I want him to remain as a permanent occupant of the heterosexual universe forever. Gay people have enough trouble, without being burdened with unfunny comedians.

Mia said...

How is it that only two people have guessed Tyler Perry? This SCREAMS Tyler.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I don't think it's Mike Meyers. I've never seen him out and proud in Toronto, and I live in the gaybourhood. If you're going to flounce, this is the place.

RocketQueen said...

And if it were Meyers, wouldn't Enty say "foreign-born"?

Melissa said...

TOO MANY ANNOYING ADS ON YOUR PAGE!!!!

mazemerizing said...

This has got to be Jim Carrey. "I Love You Phillip Morris" is out in London now, and he's probably trying to drum up publicity in other European markets. Something went screwy with the company doing the distribution or something. (if you're interested: http://www.deadline.com/?s=phillip+morris). It was at Sundance in 2009 and is the one with Ewan McGregor. And Carrey's just nuts enough to insist on everyone calling him by his female name.

TONIc said...

Jim C is definitely A List. I like the Mike Meyers guess.

BaleBabe said...

I was thinking Sascha Baron Cohen. He's always top billed, but not really an A lister in my mind. He already has a female first name, so....?

Katie said...

My BF sort of knows Kevin James. Absolutely NOT him.
