Today's Blind Items - He Shouldn't Be Working There

This actor is known by his looks to almost everyone. Will you know his name? Maybe. But you will know his face and you would be able to name a few movies he has been in by looking at him. Comic actor. I guess he would be B-/C+ list and does movies and television and works consistently. He is also one of the scarier people you want to have working on a set. Mental health issues. He says he has it under control, and is taking his meds, but he can get really violent, very quickly. He has also been accused in the past of acting inappropriately around children and young teens. He says it is always a misunderstanding and that people have mischaracterized what really has happened. He also says that his meds control those urges too. I'm not sure that a guy who has been accused of fondling children and molesting a 14 year old girl on one of his movies should be working on a project that has him interacting with kids all day and night. There is too much free time and not enough supervision and I just know that in a month or two, he is either going to get caught doing something or a parent is going to complain to the producers and sure the studio. It scares me everyday that he is there and possibly alone with kids.What is even scarier is the producers and studio knew it before they hired him but told themselves they could watch him. That lasted five seconds the first day.

I am thinking comedian like Kat Williams or Kevin Hart.

Johnna hill or however u spell his name....

*karen* said...

What job requires someone to work with kids all day and all night?

Char said...

I feel like guessing on this one is accusing someone of being something I'm not willing to accuse anyone of being.

ed said...

John C Reilly?

MissPixy said...

What about Jeffrey Jones?

PuggleWug said...

Kristen Bell has a fiance, not boyfriend, doubt it's her. Bell and Dax seem head over heels about each other. I don't think she would be cheating.

PuggleWug said...

Dammit, wrong blind, ignore that all.

ReesesPeace said...

I hate these kinds oph blinds. Iph it's true, just out the ratbastard. I'm an incest survivor and...yeah, out them.

DA said...

Cue the people who are going to be indignant that they are still reading blinds that are not filled with puppies and rainbows.

PuggleWug said...

John C. Reily is a dramatic actor as well, though. A really good one, imo.

jordansmom said...

Anthony Anderson.

Rosemary Young said...

Zach Galifianakis? Distinctive look (beard) but difficult name. Has done both movies and TV. However, he may rank higher than "B-/C+" (whatever that means) and is currently filming Hangover 3 - are there kids in that movie?

timebob said...

lol @DA I was thinking the same thing. We're all going down the gossip toilet bowl now prepare to be vilified for commenting on it.

i'm stumped on who it could be. But it always goes back to the same thing, if the actor is an earner the studios let them get away with murder (literally)

annabella said...

I also have trouble with people speculating about who this might be because what a thing to say about someone. if the people who posted this are so worried, they should notify the parents and not wait for something horrible to happen. I'm sure they can find out who the parents are easily enough. and they could do it anonymously.

I think that kat williams is not so much a comedic actor as a comedian. he is super huge in the african american community, not so well known outside of that community.

I saw an interview with him and he adopted at least one special needs child. he might have some anger issues, I don't know, but lets not drag him through the mud on this one. its a cheap shot and he deserves way better.

spacecowboy78 said...

Zach Galifianakis objected strongly to having Mel Gibson in a cameo in Hangover 2 due to his treatment of women and the antisemitic rants, so I'd have to doubt if this is him. Plus, yes, he is higher than C+/B-. I think that ranking is also too high for Jeff Jones, and if this is him, why would it be blind? He's a registered sex offender.

John C. Reilly? Maybe, but I can't see it. Don't think anyone has gotten it yet.

Maja. With a J. said...

My first thought was John C. Reilly as well, but I have to say I really don't think it's him...*L*

brittiany said...

Steve Buschemi? Please don't Nevin really love him!

brittiany said...

-I really love him. No idea how Nevin feels!

brittiany said...

Steve Buschemi? Please don't Nevin really love him!

brittiany said...

Steve Buschemi? Please don't Nevin really love him!

PuggleWug said...

Galifianakis was on Bored to Death on HBO. I think there were a few kids on the show, but not on a regular basis. He has been around for awhile, and was only seen as bankable once the Hangover came out. I think if he had this known issue, he wouldn't have the career he has today. Also, I adore him, and can't picture him as a pedo.

Jessica said...

Kevin James?

Rosemary Young said...

I retract the Zach guess. @spacecowboy78 - Funny how the "Hangover" stars objected to Mel Gibson, but they were OK with co-starring with Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist!

Also re Anthony Anderson - interesting guess, since he's on the show "Guys with Kids," but I wouldn't call him a comic actor (was a regular on Law & Order, etc.)

And while I'm at it, not likely Jonah Hill either - he was nominated for an Oscar just last year and is known.

Hope the SOB is stopped, whoever he is.

ed said...

JCR is the one of the few actors where I have trouble placing his name, but could list off a handful of his comedies. The kids thing could be related to Wreck-It Ralph. In order to get this one, you have to think about a somewhat forgettable actor. Some of the guesses are too well-known by their names alone.

Karrots said...

LOL @ DA

I am going with Brendan Frasier for my guess.

Maybe the people complaining herre should start their own blog and write all kindness blinds.

"What A list actress adopted a multicultural brood and is a wonderful human being and never did heroin in her life. She and her A list fiance shit skittles and butterflies."

PuggleWug said...

@Brittiany, I had a teenage crush on Buscemi, sounds strange, I know. He is not strictly comedy, and his current role is a dramatic. I don't think it is him. Stop guessing people I love! Buscemi, Reily, Galifinakas, I refuse to believe any of these men are like that!

BunniFooFoo said...

But Wreck it Ralph was animated and most of the voice acting would have been done in sessions where the actors are alone. It's not like there was a set where he was interacting with a lot of children.
I would look to some type of television show in this blind.

jane3113 said...

I was really scared that this was Gary Cole but all of his projects are in post-production. (but look at his creeper imdb profile pic. Hopefully that's meant to be funny)

Unknown said...

Long time lurker, first time commenter. Anthony Anderson? He's working on Guys With Kids and was accused of rape before.

jordansmom said...

JCR isn't B-/C+.

Anthony Anderson has done stand-up, appears equally on TV and film, is generally used for comic relief, and was arrested for violent sexual assault on the set of "Hustle and Flow." I specifically remember him saying it was a misunderstanding. He was also accused of another sexual assault that same year.

Jenny said...

Will Arnett

BunniFooFoo said...

oh man, Not Will Arnett! Pretty sure Amy Pohler would have killed him herself if this was true.

Jessi said...

@Rosemary Young - But the difference with Mike Tyson was that he was in the first Hangover... before they would be considered stars w/ clout. At that point if they made any kind of demands they would have most likely been told to deal with it or be replaced.

In regards to this blind, I just want to scream turn the bastard in before he ruins someone's life!!!



Miz said...

I really hope its not JCR, he killed me in Chicago, so sad :(

That being said, I don't exactly hope it's anyone else. I've decided that even though the world is a sometimes shitty where this things happen, my head canon for these blinds is that they are the fake ones. That means I don't get all high and mighty about people guessing.

Unknown said...

the guy from snl who was married to the girl from mad men. ?

luv2luvya said...

agree with @jordansmom...anthony anderson "guys with kids" gets my vote

SusanB said...

Zach Galifinakis or however you spell it. I don't think I've ever seen him play "normal". Frankly, he scares me and I've only seen him in movies.

Not Jonah Hill - he comes across to me as a sweet guy (but God knows I've been wrong about men before).

FlirtyChick74 said...

I agree Char. That is a very heavy accusation. Even if it is false, that's something a PR blitz can't take care of. He could be ruined for life.

MAC said...

I was think the all day and night was a clue, so I was trying to come up with a show name that had like 24/7 or something in it and then I thought of Up All Night. I think Will Arnett is a higher ranking though.

A RESIDENT said...

Timothy Busfield. Although he does drama and comedy

Angela said...

I'm thinking more about somebody like Rob Riggle, some supporting actor with tons of credits. Recent works: The Hangover, Going the Distance, The Other Guys, 21 Jump Street, Gary Unmarried and many many more.

But it's definitely not Riggle, as he's a former Marine and can apparently kill somebody with bare hands. Not the kind of guys you'd allow on set if he were mentally unhealthy.

lostathome said...

I was going to say Eric Roberts but he's not much of a comic...

Amber said...

Phew. I had Eugene Levy in my head but he does not appear to currently be working on anything.

It's always such a bummer when someone you like/respect/admire lets you down. But I suppose its our own fault for having expectations.

Vera L- said...

A RESIDENT said...
Timothy Busfield. Although he does drama and comedy

Yes, he's the one who worked with JLH and the crew had to keep her away from him on Birds of Paradise. This was on the site before. Everyone knows him from Revenge of the Nerds but no one knows his name!

Sean said...

Instead of a blind item, perhaps a call to the police is in order.

Angela said...

@ Vera L-
Busfield is a great guess.
As per Wikipedia...
He and his brother "also established Fantasy Theatre, a touring troupe that plays to children. Busfield writes children's plays for the Fantasy troupe."

Angela said...

Plus there were accusations two decades ago:

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20108019,00.html

Frufra said...

I know who it is, but don't know his name - really! Lemme see if I can come up with something he's been in and work from there. Note: I don't really "know", just have a guess.

auntliddy said...

Call the police!

MAC said...

The Busfield guess is good. I remember that blind with JLH. Is that Fantasy Troupe backed by a studio though?

MAC said...

Oh I see that he just made a TV Movie called "Restless Virgins" about a Massachusset's Prep School...

JoElla said...

If it scares you everyday, then do something about it, besides generate hits on your blog.

CarmeliteLady said...

Anthony Anderson is my guess, but please folks let's remember how damaging naming the wrong person is and not take all this as fact.
What if it isn't anyone we think it is?

Sales said...

Michael Cera???

TV Show: Arrested Development

Movies: Superbad, Nick & Nora, Juno etc

BoyToyBill said...

First time poster. Love the Anthony Anderson guess. I was a victim of his temper at a Sprint store of all places in the Chicago area when he was in town to do Oprah a couple years ago. Never said a word to the guy, didn't even recognize him right away. He got foul mouthed, and made sure everyone knew who he was. I was just a customer. At the time, I figured he was just pissy cuz he didn't get picked up for the second Transformers movie.

Frufra said...

Damnit, I'm going nuts trying to find this guy - he's been here before for the molestation accusations. Short comedian type, angry, pockmarked face, probably pushing 50, turns up in all sorts of TV shows, movies, as a supporting actor. I think Enty is saying that he's a regular on one of the Disney or Nick tween shows, but I've been through all of those I can think of - ugh!

annabella said...

well, Karrots, sorry for having a moral center.

its one thing to speculate about who cheated on their wife/girlfriend/husband/boyfriend and another to speculate based on no evidence whatsoever, who is a pedophile.

of course, its all done behind the cloak of anonymity. which is why one can speculate in the first place, because everyone on this site, including Enty, is anonymous.

if you weren't anonymous, you could be liable for defamation. so, enjoy the cloak of anonymity as you sit at your cubicle/kitchen table/coffee shop chair and all speculate that john c reilly and zach g are pedophiles. DOESN'T IT FEEL GOOD!

you should realize though, that if one of the stars whose name is dragged through the pedophile mud decides to sue Enty, it will be easy enough for them to discover who he is, who owns the site, and who we all are. yes, everyone of us, with our fake names and avatars.

enjoy!

Illuminated Leaf said...

"This actor is known by his looks to almost everyone. Will you know his name? Maybe. But you will know his face and you would be able to name a few movies he has been in by looking at him. Comic actor."

What about Patton Oswald? Or Diedrich Bader? They both fit this.

lakeuniongirl said...

He was my least favorite character on thirtysomething.

lakeuniongirl said...

This sounds right. He was my first guess.

redronnie said...

Eugene levy????!!!! Shut the front door!!! Who keeps posting Eugene levy for kinky and sick posts..the man is Canadian everyone knows we Canadians are nice, mild mannered, polite folks the only kinks I am aware of involve maple syrup and ice cubes. Why are these blind items? The police should be called ASAP and the bastard behind bars and labeled a sexual deviant.

Sherry said...

@ReesesPeaces: You didn't really use a ph for an f did you? Aw hail naw girl...

No idea who this could be but I don't want it to be Zach G..I heart him for some reason.

Frufra said...

I think it's a situation where there isn't anything to report, per se, but Enty knows he's working in an environment with kids and he's a known sleeze. The producers/studio obviously knew he was hinky, agreed to "watch" him, etc., but blew off that plan. I kinda think this is Enty's way of spreading a warning.

Frufra said...

@Sherry - I think Reeses has a broken f key on her keyboard :-). We had a whole exchange once where she subbed the ph for f - very successfully, I might add.

FrenchGirl said...

Enty,call the police !

PS: why actually are there many blind on child molesters here? it's the
new fashion after the "violent husbands" and "raper guys"

Karrots said...

Annabella -

based on this

"its one thing to speculate about who cheated on their wife/girlfriend/husband/boyfriend and another to speculate based on no evidence whatsoever, who is a pedophile. "

I would surmise that your moral center is a bit skewed. If you are concerned about damaging anyone's reputation with wild speculation I ask where you draw the line and kindly suggest this may be the wrong site for you to frequent.

kikikins said...

I would guess someone on the children's hospital set.

Illuminated Leaf said...

Annabella, speculation is not accusation. Life is too short to get so worked up over something that you cannot control. The best you can do is control your exposure to it.

Helen Lawson said...

Karrots, I concur.

annabella, no need to apologize. You should just stick to People and Parade magazines and places where other morally superior people hang out.

Amber said...

@redronnie - I said it's NOT Eugene Levy and was relieved.

Helen Lawson said...

French Girl, Because it happens. And if more people stop sweeping it under the carpet and call it out maybe it won't happen so much.

Connie151 said...

We shouldn't be guessing on these and possibly besmirching someone's good name. Why aren't authorities notified? Or at the very least parents/managers of child actors. I hate blinds like this.

HalleGoLightly said...

Anybody in the photos today?

ElRod said...

Could it be David Koechner? He's in a ton of movies, always a supporting actor in some very popular and often quoted comedies such as Anchorman.

ElRod said...

For the record, I hope its not him and really don't think it is. Just a wildly speculative guess.

The Black Cat said...

Sean William Scott

Brea McCain said...

I think this is Anthony Anderson. And for all the people talking about "Call the Police" call and tell them what? I heard on this gossip site that there might be this actor, which could be as of right now Jonah Hill, Anthony Anderson, John C. Reilly and some other folks people have named, might be fondling little kids. They will laugh their asses off and hang up the phone. You need some time of PROOF that something is happening and I doubt Enty has the proof he needs to call the cops. Especially when there are claims where people have the proof and they can't get a case. It's not as simple as "please call the cops."

alabrava said...

Jeffrey Jones. Ed Rooney, and the newspaper guy on Deadwood, probably his most well known roles.

artemis said...

Sex offenders come in all shapes, sizes, personalities, and genders. To say that someone doesn't look like a pedophile is naive. I can tell you from personal experience that sick people can be gorgeous, charming, funny, and intelligent. It's impossible to know what a person is really like from photos, interviews, or t.v. and movie roles.

MadLyb said...

The only person already named who has a history of violence is Anthony "I'm going to burn the place down!" Anderson, but it was with older women, not kids.

Vita19a said...

I was looking at the DM site and it looks like someone was being wrongly accused of being a paedophile, by internet/twitter followers to make your best guess as to whom this person may be and that name got to the British Primeminister. It looks like 2 networks, reporters and other individuals will be paying out for the smear.

mngddess said...

If the actor is known by his looks, I take it to mean he is either really good looking or really "distinctive" looking. Most of the above guesses don't fit that description at all..

Cheryl said...

I'm liking the Timothy Busfield guess because we already know some creepy stuff about him.

I don't think it's Katt Williams. He has some other issues, but adopted all his baby momma's other kids rather than have them go into foster care. He's never been accused of any child touching.

I don't know this Anthony Anderson guy but he sounds shady.

nessa said...

:( i hope not but damn if i always struggle to remember his name

Char said...

Um, if you don't see the difference between speculating that someone may be a pedophile, and that someone may have cheated on their partner, I'd say that YOUR moral centre is a bit skewed.

timebob said...

I love how these moral do gooders love to play the lawyer card all the while forgetting the first amendment and everyone's right to an opinion, in a forum that is strictly based on opinions, we're all assholes and we all have one. So take your pedestal elsewhere please.

JasCrocks said...

Justin Long

Magnus 21 Gunz said...

Anthony Anderson is not the culprit. He's a dick but he's no child molester. He's only a threat to women who aren't attracted to his fat ass which would be about 90% of the female populous. Anyhoo....I have no idea who this is.

Magnus 21 Gunz said...

Oh and he is not on meds unless ur talking about weed and Hennessy... Lol

I've worked with David Koechner. No way it's him. A really great guy.

Mama Ray said...

@frufra
Are you thinking Larry Miller? Hoping it's not him, but he fits your description...

CanadianMiss said...

I have no guesses as to who this might be.
As far as calling the police, I don't think you can do that on rumor alone.Even Enty, who may or may not have heard more than whispers. There needs to be some sort of proof, or at least not someone who has no firsthand knowledge or interaction with the people involved.
If police were called every time there was a rumor going around...

Not saying this is ok whatsoever if it is happening, just that it's a little more complicated than "call the cops"

L'auteur said...

Justin Long is gay? Where have I been?

Scott said...

I tend to agree that this is a troubling blind, I could care less about the guy this is about, but naming innocent people as possible sex pests isn't cool.

Jurmanji said...

Rob Schneider? Grown-ups 2? There is some speculation he is now being left out of film. He's a new dad, so I hope this is not him. But then again, I hope this is not anybody.

junebug630 said...

To those who keep putting up Anthony Anderson I realize he may be a dick in real life, but you know those charges of rape were thrown out by a judge right?
http://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-celebrity-1007anderson-jpg,0,4081710.photo
I am not speaking like I know him, but are there other cases where he was successfully accused of actual rape and not suspiciously accused like the judge on this case says.

PugsterMom said...

This is Timothy Busfield.

clynn said...

Paul Rudd

Elissa said...

@Mama Ray, that description does sound very much like Larry Miller, but I read as of a few months ago he was still in a (physical) rehab facility for his head injury, and IMDB doesn't have him listed as working on anything. Plus, he seems to be a pretty nice guy.

Absolutely love his 5 Levels Of Drinking! Classic comedy!

Carissa said...

I'm thinking the guy from Shameless. Married to the Desperate Housewife. What's his name? I can so clearly see his face, but can't remember his name. Oh, William H. Macy! Could be him. Seems like a nice guy who could go off the rails. On a show with lots of kids ranging in age.

Frufra said...

@mama Ray, Elissa - thanks for the backup, ladies, but I had to come back to this BI and retract my guess - I think my 40-something, gossip-lovin brain got two BI's confused.

I didn't want to go down in Internet history as disparaging Larry Miller, so, for the record - I'm way off, and I apologize.

Mama Ray said...

I too am a Larry Miller fan, and you're right, after his fall a few months ago he's been M.I.A.

I was just trying to help Frufra with his name if he was who she was thinking of!

(BTW, long time lurker, first time posting!)

Silly Girl said...

Justin Long is gay? Didn't he date Drew Barrymore for a really long time? I'd be on board with the Timothy Busfield guess, except this is a 'known' thing about him. Not really a blind. So, no outing him here. I'm not sure studios would take on the liability, knowing his reputation, on this one. Almost like asking for trouble. If it's not public knowledge, however, studios may not know yet this is going on.
Not sure we've guessed this one yet, or that we ever will. Too few 'real' clues.

Gabby said...

@clynn you shut your mouth! Don't you dare make such guesses! Kidding, but seriously NO it's not Paul Rudd.
