Today's Blind Items - Quick Hits

#1 - This B list television actor on a huge NBC hit, had his mom fire his agent because he was too scared to do it on his own.

#2 - This B- movie actress who has dated one of the biggest stars on the planet has started a new regimen that her shaman says will be good for her. What is it? Drinking blood from a combination of animals everyday. Craaaaazy. Of course she has always been a bit kooky.

That sounds like Juliette Lewis.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

1 - John Krasinski

2 - Juliette Lewis

Ida Blankenship said...

1) No idea. I only watch NBC on Thursday nights -- and since they decided to cancel Friday Night Lights and resurrect fucking Fear Factor, I doubt I'll watch it for much longer, anyway.

2) The very first person to come to mind was Juliette Lewis. I hope she's not guzzling tiger blood or whatever right now, because I REALLY like her. :-(

MontanaMarriott said...

1.Someone from 30 Rock, Tracey Morgan?

2.Juliette Lewis who dated Brad Pitt for a time?

Lady J said...

1- John Krazinski was the first to come to mind

2- no idea but like the juliette lewis guess

bflogurl said...

1) No idea

2) I was thinking Paltrow immediately, but Juliette Lewis makes perfect sense

Maja. With a J. said...

I agree with the Juliette Lewis for #2. And also; GROSS.

Maja. With a J. said...

I said that, and then I remembered that one of my favourite foods is Swedish blood pudding with lingonberry jam! *LOL*

RocketQueen said...

But isn't Lewis a hard-core Scientologist? Not sure they'd be down with her having a "shaman".

pomme said...

funny blind items today:D

msfairydust said...

Would Juliette Lewis be considered B at this point? Just to be different, did Christina Ricci ever date a big star? (I'm going on the "kooky" hint since she was in the Adams Family and they're creepy and they're kooky :)

lanasyogamama said...

John Krasinski's Mom is a nurse, my mom worked with her. I don't think it's him.

lunarkitty said...

msfairydust, my answer for #2 is Anjelica Huston

BigMama said...

1. it's Sheldon! you know it is...

2. I'm going with either Winona Ryder/Johnny Depp or Rene Zellweger who dated George Clooney

JasonBlueEyes said...

#1 - Rainn Wilson?

#2 - Winona Ryder - Dated Johnny Depp. No - Scratch that - Penelope Cruz - dated Tom Cruise and Matt McConahey. (sp?)

Or Minnie Driver - Dated Matt Damon.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Sheldon is on CBS, otherwise, that's a great guess!

NBC doesn't actually have that many hit shows, that's why I went with The Office.

JasonBlueEyes said...

@bigmama - Sheldon? Are you talking about "Big Bang Theory" - That's on CBS.

pwner said...

i'm pretty sure Juliette Lewis is a vegan so i'd imagine it's not her.

MontanaMarriott said...

Hmmm just to mix it up, how about going older,

2.Diane Keaton who dated Al Pacino for quite some time

RocketQueen said...

I'm with the Winona guess!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

The Winona guess definitely makes sense.

ms snarky said...

besides, krasinski is in lots of movies now.

john7145 said...

Lara Flynn Boyle for Number two?

flwrgurl said...

wow i can sooo see that! its part of a sacred ritual that santeros do!

HeyThere said...

Krasinski did change representation recently....could work.

Ida Blankenship said...

@john7145 -- that guess RULES. I'm on the Lara train.

valerie said...

The problem with Lara Flynn Boyle is that she'd be described as movie and tv actress - Twin Peaks, anyone?

I like the Winona Ryder guess.

story said...

#2 Winona Ryder

Carrie L. said...

I agree with the Winona Ryder choice.

As for #1, that's a tough one. NBC's highest rated shows include:
Law & Order SVU
Law & Order LA
America's Got Talent (doesn't fit)
The Voice (doesn't fit)
Minute to Win It (doesn't fit)

I don't know if The Office is considered a hit - it was #53 in ratings last season. Big hit for NBC...and John seems like a good fit...

linnea said...

As a meat eater, I cant judge the blood drinking but I just cant imagine gulping it down... Yuck!

DivaJulia said...

I love the Christina Ricci guess -- the song is totally stuck in my head now. Good job.

Barton Fink said...

I thought Lewis was a Scientologist. They do some wacky shit, but drinking blood isn't on the list of approved "standard tech," is it?

Char said...

"Hit" shows on NBC ("hit" to be taken relatively speaking since none of NBC's shows are really hits anymore):

The Office
Parks & Recreation
30 Rock
Community
L&O: SVU
Parenthood
Chuck

Obviously some of those are a BIG stretch to be considered a hit but NBC barely has any scripted hit shows. Well, none, really.

So I guess B list actors would be:
John Krasinksi
Ed Helms
Rainn Wilson
Rob Lowe
Alec Baldwin (maybe A list?)
Tracy Morgan
Chris Meloni (but probably would have mentioned just leaving the show)
Peter Krause
Craig T Nelson
Zachery Levi

But I have no idea.

Char said...

Oh, Law and Order: LA I guess

B List actors?
Skeet Ulrich
Terrence Howard

lolaluvs2snack said...

1. lol, how bad a$$ is your agent that you're afraid of them, after all you are the star...Ice T from law and order

2. Wow, why would anyone think drinking blood is a good idea for their career, mental health, etc? super strange (who is Marilyn Manson dating) Rose McGowan could she be B-list?

lolaluvs2snack said...

1.Terrance Howard Mr.baby-wipes himself
2.Maybe it is Winona Ryder on second thought. Why would anyone tell someone they were drinking blood? that's a secret I would keep to myself.

Alicia said...

not sure about #1 but the first thing for #2 I thought was Winona..

Alicia said...

As did everyone else! I guess since she did such a crappy job in Dracula maybe she is trying to redeem herself. She single handedly almost killed that movie for me. I heard Gary Oldman HATED working with her!

Icecat said...

No way it's Ice-T. He would have had CoCo do it :)

I like Goopy for the blood drinker. Sicky...

ecua said...

#1 Ice-T...LOL! I got nuthin' substantial.

#2 Wino forever

ecua said...

Wait...for #1 Enty doesn't specify if the show is on currently, or if this is old...so, someone from Friends or Seinfeld (but obv not one of the key players, as they all would have been A list)???

sussique said...

1. Jack McBrayer

2. Winona Ryder (dated Johnny Depp)

Henriette said...

Don't know number one, but since it is Johhny Depp's bday today, I'm gonna say Wanna Ride Her for number two.

Tatiana said...

NBC got huge hits?

nicholas said...

Krasinski for sure. He signed with WME a month ago after leaving CAA. Wussy-slash-whipped IMO and even though he does movies they are mostly shitty (like the rom-coms with Kate Hudson and Mandy Moore). A new agent could get him better parts.

The Office is def a huge hit for NBC. It's like their best rated scripted show or something.

BigMama said...

@Jason - your right, I feel so ashamed. LOL

I'm going with the dude from Chuck - he dumped his girlfriend when the show got big so maybe him

Green Wave Gal said...

I've seen Juliette Lewis stocking up on healthy stuff at my local Whole Foods...I can't imagine this would be her...you never know I guess.

linnea said...

This doesnt fit the description of no 2, but funny anyways:

"Speaking of exes, Jennifer Lopez's dirtbag ex Ojani Noa says J.Lo practiced Santeria with him: "We participated together in sacrifices of chickens and hens, and in one occasion, I was present when they were cleansing Jennifer with the blood of a hen." Nothing Ojani says is to be trusted, but damn, do I wish this one was true. [Enquirer via Celebitchy]"

RocketQueen said...

I don't practice Santeria! I ain't got no crystal ball!

kristin said...

Well I had a million dollars, but I spent it all.

J.D. Jones said...

I might be mistaken, but #2 says "B-movie actress", not "B-list". I don't think Winona Ryder or Juliette Lewis are B-movie actresses, though they are probably C-list at this point.

I'm going to guess Krista Allen, who used to date Clooney, and has pretty exclusively and extensively worked in B-movies.

ms snarky said...

As I was reading the blinds I started thinking abut Eva Mendes for #2
