Blind Item #1

This former A list mostly movie actor who achieved such results only thanks to a franchise and has since been demoted to B-, and maybe even C+ has had a tough time getting work. He has been booked for a few things in the past year but has been such a drunken mess that no one wants to work with him any longer. When you can't remember your lines, show up to work late and throw up over your co-workers, then you don't get hired.

Someone from the Batman franchise like Michael Keaton or Val Kilmer?

wahoo said...

Shia?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Sounds a lot like Shia.

Boozie said...

@wahoo I like the Shia guess. He was fired from that broadway show an he used to be on even Stevens (hence mostly movies)

Cathy said...

At first I was thinking it could be someone from Twilight, but I really like the Shia guess.

Greg said...

Daniel Radcliff

WriteOnTime said...

Praying this isn't Dan Rad, who's looking rough in the DM today.

MontanaMarriott said...

I thought Shia but didn't he start his career on Even Stevens on Disney?

FrenchGirl said...

Mickey Rourke from Iron Man?
because he never knows his text,he's painful and he's always late(but it's not a secret)

Shia has some interesting movie projects actually

Kilmer again becomes a serious actor on set

sylmarillion said...

Shia. He only had two projects last year, three if you count the naked video.

FrenchGirl said...

Zac Effron? just because

Ryan said...

Okay, remembering your lines likely a challenge for anyone, but how fucking hard can it be to show up late and throw up on your co-workers. If that's you're biggest hurdle to gainful employement, you're doing it wrong.

Look at George Wendt. He made a career of sitting at a fake bar, drinking beer, and throwing up on his co-workers. That mutherfucker was NEVER on time.

#WWGWD?

Nancy said...

Despite all of Shia's problems he has not had a hard time finding work, he's rumored to be in talks for Brad Pitt's next movie Fury.
I really don't understand Hollywood's love affair with Shia and it wouldn't bother me if it were him.

I do hope this is not Dan Radcliffe though.

The Know-It-All said...

Hayden Christensen. I really have nothing to back this up, I just want to throw it out there.

Boozie said...

@montana yes he did thats why it says mostly movies. He wasnt really a list til transformers.

FrenchGirl said...

@sylmarillion: Shia is in the next David Ayer with Brad Pitt and could act next to De Niro in Spy's Kid by DJ Caruso (if the schedule fits):it's only his movie news since a month

FrenchGirl said...

Shia is very good in Lawless or Robert Redford movie

T. E. Cuz said...

a-lister who has fallen to a c,

hasn't worked in a year or more,

problems with alcohol.

seems like this could be someone older (over 30)

Unknown said...

Brenden Frasier

JenJen said...

Keanu Reeves?

CocoMidwest said...

Chris Evans? Franchise Capt. America..he was on a podcast recently and was wasted

Shia seems overly self-obsessed with his 'artistry' as an actor kind of like James Franco turned out to be, so while he may be difficult to work with, I don't think he'd be this sloppy.

Gayeld said...

@Unknown. I hate to say it, but I "like" that guess. Brendan's been in The Mummy franchise and the first Journey movie, he's trying to get his child support reduced because he's not working, and he does appear to have that alcohol bloat going on these days. Sucks, because I really like him.

Unknown said...

Dan Rad I think sadly. He's admitted to issues with drink before & often see him in pics looking a little rough. Then again have heard many reports from his time on stage & film that he's a hard worker, professional etc so while I def could see him having issues with drink & perhaps other things, I think he's managed to keep it from affecting his work so far. Hope he works out ok, seems a lovely guy & always loved his vocal support for LGBT issues.

msgirl said...

Thank goodness it's not Dan - he has upcomig projects and is in rehearsals for a play. That Daily Mail article also says he's learned all hies already, and always does so at the very beginning of any project.

katie said...

I thought Mel. Franchise could be Lethal Weapon movies.

msgirl said...

learned all his LINES, sheesh

The Dude said...

Sounds like the male version of LiLo, i'm sure he can get money the same way she does.

mr. ray said...

I'm with Jen Jen...Keanu Reeves

Boobs Legley said...

Shia Le Barf!

All about Eve said...

Just throwing this out there:Tobey Maguire, just because he hasn't been in much lately and he's most famous for Spider Man movies.

Just Another HR Lady said...

There is no way Keanu Reeves is a C, and he always has consistent work.

ino said...

Daniel or Shia. But wasn't there a story about Daniel getting help for his alcoholism? Maybe that didn't work out. As for Shia, I had this impression that he was more into other stuff rather than liquor. And I think his professional problems stem more from him being an ass rather than just being drunk all the time.

TracySwingKid said...

Pattinson? I don't hear much about him outside of his faux relationship with the frowny chick, but he doesn't seem to have many projects outside of the sparkly vampire thing.

The Real Dragon said...

Reeves would Neva

Faith said...

Pattinson? He drinks a lot doesn't he? This could also be Daniel Radcliff maybe?

Karen said...

Shai

Hayden

Orlando

Brandon Fraiser

Paul Walker

Karen said...

Don't think he's C+ yet.

FreeTibet said...

Nicholas Cage?

kfg said...

Totally on the Pattinson boat. That guy actually looks like he smells...blech!

kfg said...

Totally on the Pattinson boat. That guy actually looks like he smells...blech!

mell61 said...

I really wanted this to be arnold schwarzenegger... Terminator for the franchise.

Anna Nonymous said...

I'm going to say Pattinson. He's always looked filthy, unshaven, three sheets to the wind, at press events and his alcoholism is well known. Get it together man.

Fitzina Simmonia said...

Brendan Fraser makes sense. He starred in the "The Mummy" franchise, he's got money woes and baby mamma drama - perfect recipe for hard drinking and a general "don't give a f*" attitude.

Anna Nonymous said...

He can't act, emote, sing, write, produce, direct, or dance, he'd be great in modeling though. Not my cup of tea, but apparently girls seem to like him. I take that back, apparently girls seem to be confused that he's not a fictional vampire from a prepubescent sophomoric love story. So, I guess he's got that. He'd better pray that Stephanie person writes more books. I do hope he has good advisors and accountants. Poor kid probably doesn't even realise he's next up on the hamburger grinder conveyor belt for washed up teen idols.

Turkish Taffy said...

My kids were big fans of Shia before Transformers. He built up a huge fan base in Even Stevens. I don't like him, bit he doesn't fit the clue at all.

mkrobb said...

Ino - Last I remember, Radcliffe didn't say he was getting help, he just said he was avoiding alcohol altogether because he had the potential for problems with it. I remember that because my reaction was, "Every alcoholic says that."

I'm going with the guy from the American Pie franchise who used to date Katie Holmes. I forgot his name.

Hazeldazel said...

Totally Brendan Frasier.

Luna Smith said...

It's definitely not Robert Pattison. He was filming in Australia, has recently left to film another movie and has just signed on for third movie.

I'm signing onto the Brendan Fraiser guess.

Jeanine Gosh said...

Franchises can be James Bond too. Or Police Academy :)

Seachica said...

Lindsay Lohan seems to get hired despite showing up to work drunk. Or on *something*

Patricia said...

Not Keanu, he has several films coming out this year, his directorial debut included. Man of Tai Chi I believe is its name.

saltygirl said...

100% on the Brendan Fraser train.

Heather Lillywhite said...

I'm going with Daniel Radcliffe, he's been looking really rough lately.

Tae Scott said...

Brendan Fraser got 8 movies in the work this year. Shia always in movies. Daniel or Paul.

Munch said...

I don't think it's Daniel Radcliffe, he's constantly working. He has several things in production at the moment, was in A Young Doctor's Notebook last year with John Hamm, also The Woman in Black, so always in employment.

I would guess Shia, just because he looks so unhealthy and has the crazy thing going on.

di butler said...

Gatsby will return him to the forefront. He has that upcoming flick playing Bobby Fischer, that looks like Oscar bait, also.

Keanu is also busy producing & directing, also getting the supposedly new Bill & Ted taken care of.

Darkmyst said...

Keanu's movies have grossed $3.8B worldwide. Pretty sure that's enough to make him perma A list.

jennifer marsan said...

Maybe the guy from Avatar?

Jazzy said...

Sounds like Daniel Radcliffe. So sad. He's so talented.

Hegg said...

Keanu has three indie movies on the go in the next 3 months. He produced all three, so not him. Sparkles/vampire also has projects lined up.

Hegg said...

so, I'm going with Laurance Fishburne.

ecua said...

Oh-I like this guess!

LOL no said...

Robert Pattinson? He can't still be A list.

nudibelle said...

robert pattinson for the win
that cosmopolis movie was SHIT
its over for all those kids
except anna, she has spunk

Jaiden_S said...

Sam Worthington
