ethorne said...

No, not vague at all

PotPourri said...

No clue.

Green Wave Gal said...

I think we'd have to look at the Top 10 from each year. That's a little ambiguous.

My guess: Buzz Lightyear. ;)

FSP said...

Smeagol

Vicki Cupper said...

Green Wave, I realized that after I posted it. I'll just say it....Ben Affleck

urban chaos said...

Woody from toy story? Yeah, I got nothing..

Swaysway1 said...

What is Elijah Wood doing these days?

J Sara said...

Hayden from Star Wars. What happened to him? Total guess... Please reveal!

Tampa Shawn said...

Wouldn't Woody be more fitting?

Vicki Cupper said...

Doesn't Elijah Wood still have that invisible dog show or something?

I could see it being Hayden.

This website has highest gross by year. Still don't know how to make it clicky. :)

Getting your lightyear buzzed costs extra.

If true, I think J Sara has nailed it.

Elijah Wood was never supposed to be a huge star that I can recall in the past 10 years, and yes, he has the show Wilfred on FX.

Vicki Cupper said...

Nick Stahl, maybe?

LottaColada said...

Sam Worthington? The guy from Avatar was pegged as the next big action star. What had he been up to?

DBZee said...

Not Smeagol - Andy Serkis is crazy busy these days.

Elijah Wood is on the show "Wilfred" (which I've heard is hilarious).

Affleck is also busy, directing, acting and a producing credit.

Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear) is currently on a network sitcom (Last Man Standing).

Off to a doc appt - hoping it's not infection, just strep!

ABlake said...

Is Hollywood allergic to straight people or something?
I will toss out the other hobbit (not Frodo,Astin or Bean) as a guess

Vicki Cupper said...

Lotta, that's a great guess. He was everywhere for a few months and now...nothing.

Vicki Cupper said...

Nevermind, Sam Worthington is still everywhere.

spacecowboy78 said...

Sam Worthington has a lot of projects lined up, to include Avatar sequels. Not him. Nick Stahl isn't a bad guess considering his recent problems, though he is married, not that it would preclude his being a gay escort. Terminator 3 was not though a top 10 movie of the past decade, so I think he's out for this blind. Hayden Christensen makes the most sense.

MISCH said...

There was a SADl reveal on AGC about Hayden, I won't repeat it...

rhinovodka said...

My original thought was Haley Joel Osment but The Sixth Sense was over ten years ago and it looks like he still works, other than that I don't have a clue.

Rob M said...

I like Stahl.

Also what about Brendan Routh? He was supposed to hit it big after Superman Returns, but he's gone nowhere except for a few small parts (Scott Pilgrim, etc.) and short arcs on TV. He also had that mini-scandal about his bulge being distractingly large in Superman's red briefs.

Discobitch said...

Bean wasn't a hobbit he was Boromir

Billy Boyd is back in Scotland touring with his band and Dom Monaghan is filming plus on tv with his animal show

IMakeNoSense said...

I'm pretty sure he was. He was a well known child actor.

I'm saying Hayden. Rumors have been out there plus Rachel Bilson can't be cheap.

LottaColada said...

Ugh, I saw an article where Sam Worthingtin.got arrested a month ago while in film location.

Back to square 1

Melissa said...

I'm on board with Nick Stahl

Seachica said...

Brandon Routh. He was supposed to be huge after playing the man of steel, but went nowhere

Jules_345 said...

Wasn't HC the popular guess for the actor who had was HIV + and has unprotected sex or something that got him shunned in Hollywood? These stories sound so crazy I feel like I am making them up.

Vicki Cupper said...

Crapinator 3 was a top 10 movie in 2003 if you're going top ten by each year. So he could still be in.

But, you're right. Hayden makes the most sense.

Melissa said...

Or Justin Chatwin from War of the Worlds?

Discobitch said...

Nick stahl was in sin city as the yellow guy and just because he's married doesn't mean he won't fk men for cash 9/10 junkies would do anything for drug money

FSP said...

I like Vicki's guess, Nick Stahl.

msgirl said...

Dammit I got bumped and didn't save my reply, bah.
First person I thought was Hayden, but Superman is a great guess. Superman role is almost a sure bet for stardom.

Erin B said...

Brandon Routh was just in "Partners" (now canceled), & his wife is a reasonably successful actress who recently had a baby. I don't think it's him.

Vicki Cupper said...

Justin Chatwin's on Shameless.

Nick Stahl's worked this year and last.

Ditto Brandon Routh.

Hayden Christiansen's imdb page has future projects, but nothing since 2010.

spacecowboy78 said...

Also, Superman was not a Top 10 movie, or else they'd have made more starring Brandon Routh. Alas, it was not, and they did not.

supapimp said...

Taylor kitsch

Vicki Cupper said...

Unfortunately, the Kitsch of Death is still popular.

Superman Returns was a top ten movie in 2006. If we could establish what Enty meant by "a top 10 movie in the past ten years" it would be much easier.

spacecowboy78 said...

I took it to mean top 10 movies of the decade, not a top 10 at the box office in any given time period or top 10 in a year. Regardless of that, based on prior blinds, reveals, and the stunning lack of credits (and even the quality of credits post Jumper) this has got to be Hayden.

Groovy said...

hopefully chan tatum in five years

NomNom83 said...

"supposed to be a huge star" sounds like someone who was pushed heavily but couldn't fill theaters. Also, I think top 10 could be box office and/or critical acclaim.

I could see Nick Stahl turning tricks b/c of his addiction problems, but "escort"? Makes it sound like this person is commanding better prices than trading BJs for a rock.

My random guesses (yes, they're all still notching credits on IMDB):
- Haley Joel Osment
- Clive Owen
- Emile Hirsch

I'm leaning Emile Hirsch on this one.

msgirl said...

See, I don't know Nick Stahl, and it sounds like it would be someone I did.

So strike Brandon (glad of that!) and so it's Haydan.

He was also the popular guess for that blind about everyone stringing this young gay guy who ended up flat on his face, and also there's been the Rachel blind about how she's so effed up she loves Hayden because he's a true friend and she needs that. Made me feel sorry for her.

Angela said...

I think Enty means a top 10 movie for the year during the last decade.

So, it could be:
2002: John Corbett, My Big Fat Greek Wedding
2003: Nick Stahl, Terminator 3
2006: Brandon Routh, Superman Returns

Hayden Christensen had two top 10 movie, so I doubt it's him.
Nick Stahl, and his well documented drug issues, is the likely candidate.

Christopher Cruz said...

Um, do you just hire him out of a catalog or something? Enty, what have you been reading? Just give us a title and we'll take it from there ;)

CrazyCatLady said...

Nick Stahl is a great guess! I always thought he was so talented and then he just fell off the face of the earth.

SkittleKitty said...

What about Josh Hartnett?
He has IMDB credits but nothing substantial and I thought he was supposed to be a big deal.

auntliddy said...

Sad news anyway.

SweetGeorgiaBrown said...

Gawd if that's the case I'm buying a ticket to Vegas!

dragon said...

Josh Hartnett Would Neva!

SweetGeorgiaBrown said...

Nick Stahl is a bad drug addict and living on and off the streets of Skid Row LA. He's married and has a young child. He actually had a missing persons report on him a couple of months ago but was supposedly in rehab? Last I heard he was home and his wife was trying to get/keep him clean.

SweetGeorgiaBrown said...

He's on Shameless on HBO.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Shrek.

dia papaya said...

DBZee, wishing good things for you but ya know that Strep is also an infection right?

Feel better!

Jennifer H. said...

He's been really busy. The two Titans movies, the Terminator movie, the Avatar sequels, as well as other movies. No way this is Worthington.

SweetDee said...

Just FYI...both Smiegol and Elijah Wood are working A LOT. EW has Wilfred and they're both in the upcoming Hobbit trilogy.

I hope not Nick Stahl. I kind of had a crush on him in Carnivale.

Vera L- said...

Josh Hartnett is who I thought of, but he has two movies coming up.

Patty said...

Corbett seems to do a lot of voice over work.

I'm going with Rex from Toy Story.

Stacey Charter said...

Ummm hello - Mike Myers! Def!

Alex said...

I'm thinking it's someone more like Jake Lloyd--a child star then; a hustler now.

Jules_345 said...

Oh my gosh, I see the name Nick Stahl everywhere and had no idea he was the guy in Carnivale. Thanks for tw info @sweet dee

Cheryl said...

I wanted to say Hayden, but Rachel wouldn't be a very good beard if she let that happen and I'm thinking that he is still too well known. The old rumor is that he was once openly gay but that George Lucas stuffed him into the closet. There was another rumor about him being hooked on meth. I hope it's not him. I think he still has potential.

jax said...

josh Hartnett is well paid from Tom Cruise to keep quiet about Suri.

Also, straight.

yodelay said...

Wow, I didn't recognize Jimmy as the kid from War of the Worlds.

Aoife said...

I'm not saying Nick Stahl isn't doing what he has to in order to support his habit but i don't believe that anyone would want someone as strung out as he is to "escort" him anywhere.

I seem to remember a variation of this blind being here awhile ago and I was convinced that it was Hayden. If Bilson is his beard who is paying her? She's only on my radar because of gossip sites. I've never seen her in anything.

If it's not Hayden I have no clue.

Sherry said...

I'm thinking Hayden. He was touted to be the next but never happened. Think this is him..Sad!!

The Truth said...

Emile hirsh

DBZee said...

Aw, thanks, Dia! It turned out to be a sinus infection and not chest/lung infection. Strep or sinus I can handle, chest infection knocks me flat. On the z-pac and a new inhaler. Fun times for Christmas!

Brandon Routh, hmmm....

Gabi said...

Edward Furlong.....fund his drug habit???

MrPresident said...

Orlando Bloom

JSierra said...

Yeah it can't be Hayden, he is papped everywhere with Rachel and none of those places are Vegas. He is too recognizable, the kid was Anakin Skywalker. I think we would have heard if Darth Vader was showing everyone in Vegas his dark side.

Basil said...

Whoever this is could still be working regularly. Escorting doesn't have to be a full time job depending on how much he charges. And if he is still working in films and has name recognition, he could charge alot more money per date.

Bravura said...

@NomNom

It's not Clive Owen; he has had great success being the face of Lancome Pour Homme and had quite a few movies since. He's had steady work (plus he's one of my favorite actors so I'm quite adept at following him).


I do like the Hayden guess a lot though :) He was in that movie "Jumper" but hasn't really been seen too much as a leading man since.

BettorOffSingle said...

I am 1,000 percent sure this is not Nick Stahl.

Mooshki said...

Josh Hartnett has been spending a lot of his spare time back here in Minnesota recently.

BlindItemMe said...

ooh like emile hirsch - whatever DID happen to him?

DBZee said...

No no no on Clive Owen. My other husband would never stoop so low when he has a permanent second job opportunity in casa Zee.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Orlando Bloom? Pirates hyped the hell outta him and after that only crappy movies. And I am still convinced he is gay, married to a VS model or not. Once the rumors about him started hr got married and a father superfast and there is no chemistry between him and his wife whatsoever.

Michelle said...

I could see this being Hayden. The Star Wars franchise is all that he has done that are big shows, but technically, they could be considered one project. He could also escort with an exclusive service where clients only get revealed in a shakedown like Heidi Fleiss and her client list.

annab said...

Can't be Hayden. The royalties from Star Wars alone must total millions and Jumper must have also made him more millions. He doesn't need the money. I feel bad for whomever it is.

PuggleWug said...

Carnivale was a great show! I was so pissed that it got cancelled. Nick Stahl's downward spiral is sad. He is quite talented.

PuggleWug said...

DBZee, I had to get a strep test the other day too. Got a script for the z pac, and am looking forward to the end of my sinus infection! The past few days have been a bitch.

Kloie said...

Emile Hirsch is a good guess.

Lee Tanner said...

What about Kip Purdue? The timeline may be off, but in the late 1990s he was supposed to be a huge star and them he disappeared.

Mame Dennis said...

Nope. Not Clive Owen. He lives in London, has a wife and children.

BlindItemMe said...

oh kip pardue! driven or drive? whatever that movie was and remember the titans.

he was also in Rules of Attraction

was he ever touted to be a big thing though. i just remember him cos he was pretty :)

Amelia Merritt said...

Do tell! I don't know what you mean...

dia papaya said...

Ok! That makes more sense DBZee! I have a sinus infxn too! Like the worst one I've ever had in my life. I was worried it had gone into my lungs too bc thats no fun at all. Hmmmmm! Very interesting..... Is it that time of year, or some wicked CDaN curse :P

Amelia Merritt said...

Oh he totally fits that blind about the star who got used. He's been off the grid for years and is now attached to a few random projects. I could see that fitting HC.

KittensRUs said...

Hayden is the one who was touted as the Next Big Thing. None of the others being mentioned were.

Vicki E said...

I'm in wawrickshire uk, loads of people here have colds and coughs, really annoying x

Paper trail said...

Clive Owen is hot and this is not him as he is an awesome actor.

I vote Hayden. He is not an awesome actor.

Cornbread said...

I want this to be Steven Seagal.

Those under the weather, I swear by taking a Zinc supplement daily. I was super prone to sinus and bronchial infections, but since I've started taking Zinc and a B Complex supplement, I rarely get more than just a mild cold.

stigs84 said...

If I hired an escort & it turned out to be a once famous celebrity from not even that long ago, I wouldn't be able to keep my mouth shut about it, I'd be telling everyone.

And speaking of Kip Pardue, he did this movie with Tara Reid that's actually really good, imo. It's where he takes her to a secluded cabin on their honeymoon and he won't let her leave and terrorizes her. I know, I know, a straight to DVD Tara Reid movie, but I swear it's good

The Black Cat said...

Harry Potter is a gay escort? Hmmm.

DBZee said...

My sister in Houston has one, too. I teach art to elementary school kids so I don't get sick very often (I've had 8 years of immune system build up around the little petri dishes!), but this season has been brutal.

@Cornbread, my doc said the same thing (and echinacea), but she said to wait until I was done with the z-pac.

Germs be gone! I hope you all feel better soon!

DBZee said...

Puggle, did they resolve the ending of Carnivale?

Hope you feel better! I agree, the sinus is a bear to deal with - I started feeling sick Friday afternoon, so had to suffer through Saturday and Sunday before I could even make an appointment. I've been swilling Emergen-C and Airborne like it's the nectar of the gods.

elspeth said...

@DBZee, This is so late, but i wonder if there's something to an immune build up/protection by frequent exposure? I worked at a bank in the operations section; we had lots of quick/fast contact w/tons of people and their documents [cash, CDs, other transactional docts.] We NEVER got 'the flu' that everybody else got.

At worst, we came down w/some sniffles. It was so obvious and ran over such a long period of time that we joked about it.

OT: We could track the lunar cycle w/o looking at a calendar. Some people unfortunately go totally nutsy cuckoo during a full moon. It's a very sad thing to see.

Harvey Manfrenjensen said...

Totally Hayden! Yowza
