Blind Items Revealed

December 12, 2008

#1 - This guy is an A list television star and probably B in films he has done. Probably not any higher than B list on name recognition though. Oh, he stars in one of those crime dramas. Anyway, for the past year he has just had his paychecks sent to directly to various charities in the city where he films his show.

Gary Sinise

He is truly one of the good guys, thanks for revealing this one, I remember he was the popular guess. Merry Christmas Enty!

audrey said...

I do believe he was guessed almost right away. Not my favorite actor, but this is a very very kind and generous thing for him to have done.

katsm0711 said...

Wow. Did he have a rough life that made him become so generous? This is really incredible.

DewieTheBear said...

Totally love him.

Cheryl said...

We knew it! He is also very active in getting modified homes built for disabled vets and has been here to Fort Hood several times.

mynerva said...

What a good, decent man.

Comma Chaser said...

Love this. Rock on Major Dan!

nolachickee said...

Thanks, Enty! Nice to know that not everyone in Hollywood is a narcissistic, souless dick.

Alma said...

Have loved Gary Sinise since the stand. This just makes me swoon more. :)

Renoblondee said...

Awesome!

SusanB said...

Always loved him. He's on my List.

Merlin D. Bear said...

Happiest and Merriest ChanuSolstiChristmaKwanzFestivus to one and all!
With a special bacon wrapped one to Enty with a tequila chaser.
And to everyone:
Thank you for all you do, whoever or whatever you are. This community wouldn't exist without you.

Happy post Apocalypse

Nice to see his kindness goes back years. :)

Sunny said...

Gary Senise was the answer to another Kindness reveal in either July or the January before (I think it was about playing in a charity event despite injuries or SOMETHING to that effect)

Idiot Watcher said...

Awesome. Just awesome, Lt. Dan!

Del Riser said...

He's such a classy guy. Doing these things quietly without a lot of fanfare. He does lots of things for the military boys, he truly has a good heart.

Merry Christmas, or your holiday greeting of choice to all of you. I agree with Merlin, this place is wonderful to come to, only because of all of you.

Enty, thanks for giving us a place to meet and laugh and ponder.

Amy said...

How does that work, I wonder? Just set up the rerouting of the money like any other direct deposit from your paycheck?

sifichick said...

This makes me like him all the more. It's one thing to just hand out checks to charities but it's another to really get involved. There was another blind that was revealed to be him. He helped a vet outfit his house with ramps & other things.

It's nice to see that some people really put their money where their mouth is & actually help out those less fortunate than themselves. Especially when they don't do it for the publicity.

Turkish Taffy said...

I knew it! He was robbed of the Oscar for Forrest Gump. Great actor, great human being. If he wasn't Republican, he'd be perfect!!

kim butler said...

Yes! I luv me some Gary! I just wish more of Hollyweird did the same.

The Black Cat said...

I wish more people who had the means to do this, did it.

Reese said...

Probably the most consistently nice, good person you write about Enty. Always refreshing to see a Gary Sinise post.

PuggleWug said...

I love kind people. This brought a smile to my face.

Becks said...

He's so awesome!

GoGo said...

This dude is A++ in my book all the way! And he does it all without PRing it e'erywhere!
Thanks Enty! I needed a kindness today!

ElleBelle said...

I work for the USO, and I have personally met him several times. He is truly one of the most genuine and giving men out there.

Sunny said...

OY! I finally found the Kindness Reveal for Gary :)

Jessie said...

Yay! This is a good kindness reveal.

Sherry said...

Love having a kindness reveal. It restores my faith in humanity to know that he is so generous. Sometimes people know when they have enough and sharing feels better than buying a brand new toy for themselves.

supapimp said...

Loved him in 'mission to mars'.

timebob said...

every once in awhile one Hollywood player turns out not to be an asshole

ABlake said...

I love him!
A cherished member of my family is a Wounded Warrior spokesperson and Sinise is one of the (very) few actors he respects.
Gary is someone who certainly puts his money where his mouth (and heart) is.

hotchacha said...

Wonderful man.

CrazyCatLady said...

I think it's awesome that he does that. BUT why wait so long to reveal a truly nice, generous person?

Kerrimoo said...

What a wonderful thing to do. Always liked the man, little bit in love with him now.

~mara said...

<3

He is just amazing.

Cee Kay said...

Oh, yes. Much love and good wishes for Gary Sinise. It's nice to hear about a good guy!

MadLyb said...

Gary Sinise is one of the few Republicans I truly like. He should be sainted.

CarolMR said...

God bless him.

cinephreak said...

Aw! Lieutenant Dan!!!

it took forever said...

This guy is really a class act and a great actor

me said...

Gotta luv a Mid-western guy!!

Boadacious Betty said...

Love Gary Sinise. What a lovely chap.

AKM said...

Gary Sinise is awesome, and he's easy on the eyes, too; his wife is a lucky woman!

Happy holidays to the CDaN family. Love you all! <3

Tuxedo Cat said...

Wonderful person. If everyone who could do this, did this once in a while there would be less want in the world.

Kloie said...

I don't doubt the kindness of what he does for veterans, but he is not a nice person if he doesn't feel like you deserve it. He reneged on playing a vets benefit because they wouldn't pay his band enough, when he had already agreed to play. He also treated my husband like crap when he was a guest on the show my husband used to produce. As in wouldn't even respond when spoken to on the phone and then just hung up without a word because he wouldn't wait for the host.

Jenn said...

Yay, Lt. Dan! Nice to have a good thing revealed about an actor. I love him on CSI New York. I do get his and Gary Okdman's names confused until I look at their faces, or think of their movies/TV shows. A couple of actors I do that to.

Call me yndy... said...

Thanks... I thought I was going crazy having heard this exact blind before. You're on about the prior kindness reveal... Sinister is just amazing!!

Call me yndy... said...

Stupid autocorrect. Sinister = Sinise

Melody Clark said...

Kloie, since all the money Gary makes with the band is given to veterans benefits, that doesn't make any sense. That's how he funds many of his projects. There has to be a much bigger story.

As for his treatment of your husband, we don't know Gary's side of the story. I may have avoided him, too.

Unknown 1 said...

Lieutenant Dayan, you're an Angel. He just went up to A List in my book. I hope he gets lots more offers for big roles and higher pay checks, for him and the good work he does, plus he's so talented, the world needs more people like this. What an inspirational reveal, good job Enty.

Kloie said...

My husband was the producer. All he had to do was say hello and connect him to the host. I'd think a little common courtesy would be in order when someone says "hi, how are you, please hold for XX."

Tuxedo Cat said...

@Kloie

Well, it certainly sounds as if there are two sides to him....

headrot said...

My dad went to school w him and he took my aunt to prom. They have had nothing but nice things to say about him.
