NY Post Blind Items

Which squeaky-clean actor’s drug habit is so bad, he’s starting to get a reputation and be passed over for big roles?

Lea said...

Please let it be Kirk Cameron.

.robert said...

Cameron only ever had one 'big' role way back in the 80's.

ms snarky said...

hmmm....who the heck is squeaky clean? Zac Efron? but what big roles could he get?

Ida Blankenship said...

Ryan Reynolds strikes me as squeaky clean, personally.

But I would LOVE for this to be Kirk Cameron. :-)

Moose said...

Mr Bubble?

BigMama said...

@Moose - HA! like it

I am on board with the Ryan Reynolds guess for this one, but I would also like to throw out Jakey G.

surfer said...

Does Kirk Cameron even act anymore? I don't think this is him. And Ryan seems to be such a gym rat, that I can't see this being him either. But, I really have no idea who it could be.

Kari said...

Kirk Cameron doesn't get big roles any longer. He does act occasionally in some Christian themed movies I think. Other than him I just can't think of a squeaky-clean actor that isn't over the age of 15.

mbagrrrl said...

Chris Evans. There have been similar blinds about him recently.

EmEyeKay said...

Joseph Gordon-Levitt?

Coco said...

What about Matt Damon? He seems squeaky clean to me.

Nellie said...

Chris Evans. Which sucks!! He's such a nice guy

Nellie said...

Oh and that's a guess that it's him. I am not in the know.

hunter said...

Lol, Kirk Cameron - that's awesome.

Ida Blankenship said...

Matt Damon is NOT hard-up for roles. He's like Hollywood's Golden Boy.

I'm on board with the Chris Evans guess.

And guys...I think the Kirk Cameron guess was a joke. ;-)

EmEyeKay said...

Matt Damon seems squeaky clean to me, too.

Astrid said...

Jakey G? I think of him as pretty squeaky clean.

Beth said...

Zac Efron was the first person I thought of.

Christiane said...

Do people perceive Chris Evans as a squeaky-clean guy, though? I always get ''hot mess'' vibes when I see candid shots/premiere shots of the poor man. He seems like he's battling demons right now.

Christiane said...

Oh, and perhaps the squeaky-clean clue is a reference to Captain America, the most vanilla and innocent of superheroes (except for Superman).

Sherry said...

Maybe it is Jake and the drug is pot. It doesn't have to be coke or heroin does it? Who wants to work with someone so stoned they can't do a line without laughing and are always hanging by the craft services table. Hey, it could happen!

flip said...

You know @Sherry, I think pot is widely accepted in the creative community -- including directors, producers. I am guessing the issue has to do with getting someone insured or more likely having them not hold up production. Production costs spiral if the lead is unavailable due to "exhaustion".

Ice Angel said...

I really don't understand all the hate for Kirk. He's a Christian and is honest and open about his beliefs. I know several of you are atheists, and as much as I disagree with your opinion on the existence of God or religion in general, I cannot imagine wishing a drug addiction on you. My niece is a hopeless drug addict and the pain it has caused her children and family is unbearable.

OMAMA is BROKO said...

ben affleck

OMAMA is BROKO said...

@Ice Angel -agreed! I thank you for having the gumption to say it.

crila16 said...

Zack Efron is my guess.

pegd said...

Agree with Ice Angel and Omama!

SusanB said...

Thanks Iceangel!

Mango said...

Channing Tatum? He seems kind of milquetoast-y.

GSDlover said...

I think it's Chris Evans.
Kirk Cameron only had one big role and that was in the 80's so I can't see how he would be in demand now.

I think people are only guessing Kirk because he's the most squeaky clean actor we know. And please, not all "atheists" are wishing drug addiction upon others. Not even close.

I agree with Chris Evans.

Ida Blankenship said...

Oh, good grief, people. *eyeroll*

What Rocket Queen said.

Ice Angel said...

@RocketQueen-respectfully, I don't think I said that all atheists wish a drug addiction on Kirk. I was specifically speaking to Lea and Ida. Not hating, just don't understand why you would hate someone who seems like a generally nice guy who leads a relatively quiet life, for the most part.

sussique said...

um...I got nothin

Ida Blankenship said...

*sigh*

Ice Angel, ignore the fact that Kirk is a Christian for just a moment. WHO is more squeaky-clean than him? It's pretty unimaginable that he'd ever even toke up, which is why someone guessed him -- as a JOKE. Jeez.

I don't think any of us would seriously wish a drug addiction on anyone.

Ida Blankenship said...

P.S. I don't hate Kirk, but I think his thoughts about Darwinism and homosexuality are misguided, to say the least. His opinions definitely open him up to criticism.

Himmmm said...

No no no no no NOO!!!
C'mon you guys!!???
This just HAS to be:

F R E D W I L L A R D

Okay, maybe it's Steve Carell?
Maybe the dude who played Gopher on Love Boat?
Okay, I'm stretching. Sorry.

RocketQueen said...

Fair enough, Ice Angel, but how do you know either Ida or Lea are atheists? They may be Agnostics, or simply of a faith OTHER than Christian. There are many to choose from.

Listen, it's not a huge deal, but considering the Christians on this page get upset when they see posts that appear to be targeting them, wouldn't it be fair for an atheist to respond to a post that seems to imply that atheists are wishing drug addiction on a squeaky clean actor?

Snakeoiler said...

I wish a drug addiction on all Christians.

There. I said it.

Sarah said...

I have heard some coke rumors about Chris Evans.

I also love the Cameron family, it's got to be tough to stick to your beliefs in Hollywood. Good for them.

SallyAnne said...

oh people. lets have fun guessing about drug addicted celebs! We can discuss Faith or lack there of on another site.
idk about the blind

Sarah said...

@SallyAnne- I get the same feeling whenever I see political arguments and the like on gossip sites. This is supposed to be my break from all that!

lolaluvs2snack said...

Jonah Hill because of the weight loss. Maybe coke helped lose weight now he is out of control...

brendalove@gmail.com said...

Hmmmm....Robert Pattinson or the Harry Potter dude?

Anotheramy said...

The Kirk Cameron guess was FUNNY! Remember when we used to be able to take a joke around here and not turn it into imaginary Christian bashing? This is a GOSSIP site. If you want to talk about religion go to the Christian sites. The rest of us are here for snark and humor unencumbered and completely separate from religion and politics.

That said, I think this is obviously Matt Mcconaughey

Mooshki said...

"Maybe the dude who played Gopher on Love Boat?"

Nope, can't be. He and post-rehab Julie came to my high school to talk about how "the drugz are bad." :)

ecua said...

Tom Hanks? Just cuz of the squeaky clean part and use of "big.". Nothing more to base it on.

And I second what Anotheramy said. Enough with the faith bs! This is a celebrity gossip site.

Jasmine said...

AnotherAmy- what you wrote should be the subheading to every CDAN page from now on- THANK YOU!!!

Kid Sis said...

Ecua, I was thinking the same thing! For me, Squeaky Clean = TH. Any oldtime CDANers know if he's ever been a blind?

RocketQueen said...

Anotheramy...that WOULD be nice :)

George Blake said...

James Franco?
