Blind Item #1

What actress you probably have never heard of but scored herself the lead in a high profile tv movie quit because one of her co-stars who you have heard of, kept hitting on her.

Not much to go on..

Cathy said...

The only high profile tv movie I can think of is Liz and Dick, so maybe Lindsay was hitting on this girl?

Cathy said...

Wait, nevermind, I didn't notice that the actress who quit originally had the lead role.

Holly DeVeaux ?

christina said...

The girl who was supposed to play Casey Anthony and Rob Lowe.

AuntJess said...

Rob Lowe for the actor in that Casey Anthony movie? Dont know the actress's name and can't google right now.

angel said...

Rob Lowe and Holly DeVeaux FTW. I assumed that Rob had reformed now that he has a family, etc. Silly me.

Carrie L. said...

It definitely sounds like Lowe & DeVeaux. I admire her; she must have strong moral character to walk away from a role that could have moved her up the "list." Lowe is a pig.

I see that Oscar Nunez from "The Office" is playing the defense attorney Jose Baez, so unfortunately I'll now have to watch the thing. I'll just fast-forward through the Lowe parts. Smug jerk.

Anotheramy said...

I dont know because Ive never heard of either of them.

j97 said...

I'm actually excited to see Oscar play a serious role. I know that's...weird.

Steppy said...

I don't think it's Rob Lowe. Besides being awesome, Lowe would merit a much more flattering description than "heard of".

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

The Holly Deveaux guess sounds spot on, since the news has just come out that she dropped out of the project because "both sides felt it wasn't right" :/

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Wow Steppy, Rob doesn't have a very good reputation, actually...so it may be an understatement to say "heard of," but it's a generous understatement ...

Me said...

well the actress seems obvious, but the actor, maybe not. was thinking when i saw this, "will she ever get another acting job"? her leaving caused problems

Just Another Girl said...

Rob Lowe is also a producer on the film which would have made any attempt she made to stop the advances practically impossible.

Char said...

Rob Lowe is an ass, he's always been an ass, he'll always be an ass. This is totally him.

Jolene Jolene said...

^ I was going to say the same thing. I wonder if there's more to the story. More than just "getting hit on." More like "sleep with me or you'll get fired" kind of thing. Because I can't believe that a no-name actress would drop out of a TV movie (even if it's Lifetime) just because an actor was hitting on her.

timebob said...

Rob Lowe really loves doing those lifetime movies. They must treat him like its 1986.

Hendrix said...

This sounds like an actress who has her priorities straight. It may hurt her career - even end it - but everyone on this blog & others always complains about "why do women let themselves be used like that?" This one didn't. I applaud her...that took great courage and integrity.

RenoBlondee said...

He's still awesome on Parks and Rec though. He kills me and my husband.

nunaurbiz said...

No idea, but I met Rob Lowe and he's not an ass. At least he wasn't to me and everyone else that day on the set. (And no, he didn't hit on me.) He actually came across as a friendly person and genuinely cared about the nervousness of someone in the cast and put them at ease. He's actually also a lot smarter than you might think. This was a few years ago, but still ... Hope it's not him.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Well if it is Holly, then I guess the culprit could be Oscar from The Office. He's the other "name" I know associated w this production so far....although you can see I don't even remember his full name...

commandeered said...

The other high profile Lifetime movie is the June Carter story. Was someone else supposed to play the lead? or has it always been Jewel?

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

Just did a google search on:
"Rob Lowe" "hit on me"
and then I did a search on:
"Rob Lowe" "hit on her"

Both searches had lots of relevant hits that convince me that the answer to this blind is the obvious one...

crila16 said...

The only high profile TV movie I can think of was the Hatfield and the McCoy's. Man was that an amazing mini series.

Finally an actress who obviously could have used the exposure stood up for herself. About time. Proud of her and her name should be revealed next month so we can send her fan letters or something!

anongkhla said...

I have no trouble believing this is Rob Lowe. He is a raging egomaniac and always has been, including the "someone who follows their own ungoverned impulses" aspect of egomania.

He still has his entertaining moments on Parks, though. I can admit that.

Tru Leigh said...

I'm liking the Holly DeVeaux guess. I was wondering why a director would put up with that, then I learned Rob Lowe is in it and he's producer that explains why he can get away with it.

Flaming asshole.

libby said...

I love Oscar Nunez! I also loved when his character had a crush on the gay warehouse guy for a while! So cute.
I can't wait to see him do drama. I've been worried for that cast after The Office ends, since the minor players will never escape their characters (Creed, Meredith, Stanley, etc).

Tru Leigh said...

You're all far too young to remember this, but way, way back in Rob Low's career, he was involved in a scandle involving an underaged girl and video taped sex. It was basically the first sex tape scandal.

Yet he managed to carve out a career anyway, and stay out of any scandal, in public anyway.

Dr. Phil is right, the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.

libby said...

Nobody here's too young, Tru Leigh. I'm 41, I remember it well, and I'm same age or younger than many of the 'regulars' here.
His romp with the 13-year old has been discussed many times here, FYI.

astrogirl said...

You're all far too young to remember this but back in the day Rob Lowe made a sex tape with Mary Magdelene. It was the lead story in all the cuneiforms at the time.

Tru Leigh said...

Wow.

Mooshki said...

LOL, astrogirl. What Libby said - most of us here are on the "mature" side. Probably why the commenters here are a step above most other sites.

Steppy said...

Tru Leigh - I'm sorry that you and Dr Crazy share such a pessimistic attitude. It must be rough going through life expecting the worst of everyone.
Hopefully, someday you will be able to let go of all your grudges and enjoy life. Best of luck!

Tru Leigh said...

Feeling the hate...

Agent**It said...

@Tru Leigh, I remember that!


@crila16- I thought Hatfield & McCoys was really good. Amazing it was on History channel, shows you how badly network TV is today.

Gossip Mongerer said...

How about Dean Cain, he's filming a ton of made for tv movies as we speak. Maybe Elisa Donovan as the actress?

Gossip Mongerer said...

Dean Cain and Charisma Carpenter is probably a better guess, just to throw something other than Rob Lowe out there.
