Blind Item #1

This almost A list mostly television actor who is having a career rebirth after a brief, but smoking hot career in movies and then nothing for a long time had a celebration last week because he made the last payment owed to the teen girl he had sex with when she was three years short of being legal. He was almost three times her age when it happened.

Kevin Bacon?

LottaColada said...

Nvm his success in movies was not brief

libby said...

Dennis Quaid?

Sarah said...

Rob Lowe?

libby said...

DQ is a bit briefer, I guess.

Sarah said...

Never mind, the man in question would have been around 45

Man where the fuck was all this when I was a teenager.

I wanna mess around with Kevin bacon

libby said...

I thought it was good, Sarah. I was thinking of his past love of 13-year olds.

LottaColada said...

@dragon, LMAO I agree Kevin Bacon is still smokin hot!

LottaColada said...

@Libby- um whaaat?!

Unknown said...

Steve Buscemi? The "Near 3x her age" thing works out. He's 55. She'd be about 18

Jamie2 said...

The man in question would have been c. 45 when it HAPPENED. He would be older than that now (last payment).

I can't see this as Lowe though. He's been working consistently on TV for the last several years.

Unknown said...

Oh, wait. That doesn't add up.

CHEVY CHASE! He's a slimedog , and the "smoking hot career in movies" thing kinda works out.

HannahBanana said...

Yea, but what "smokin hot" movie was David Caruso ever in???? Jade?!?!?! Baaahaha....I'm going w/ Chris O'Donnell, remember Scent of a Woman & Circle of Friends?

Karen said...

I don't know if Enty meant it this way, but his wording implies that the girl is still a teenager now. Probably not, though.

dragon said...

Life ain't fair,Lotta. Life aint fair.

greenmountaingal said...

My teenage self would've jumped at the chance to hook up with Chris O'Donnell. He was one of my favorites!

Kelly said...

Rob Lowe. He got into trouble in Atlanta years ago.

Munch said...

Mickey Rourke. He's 60 now, if the girl was 15 he'd have been 45 at the time, not much work in that time so took a long time to pay.

I know it might not fit quite right but dammit he's skeevy.

Kelly said...

I thought the "smoking hot" might also refer to St. Elmo's Fire...



Happy Friday everybody!

libby said...

Lotta--As Kelly mentioned, Rob Lowe's original career death was when he made a sex tape with a 13-year old. Like videotape days.
the NE exposed him on that, I think.

Laura said...

Jeff Daniels (I hope I'm wrong because I love him!)

Not Rob, he's been working quite steadily since the incident in Atlanta.

Off to see who's in the DM!

Jamie2 said...

@Kelly - Per Wiki, that was 25 years ago when he was abt 24 years old. He was with two women, one 22 and one 16. He said he didn't know the 16yo was under age (which I can believe, esp if she was hanging out with a 22yo).

That doesn't sound like a pedo to me.

Maybe Libby knows about other cases?

J Sara said...

I totally remember that! It was a grainy video and it was a big deal at the time...

LottaColada said...

Libby- daanng I had no idea!

Kelly said...

Good! I didn't want to be correct. He's great on Parks and Rec

Pogue Mahone said...

How about James Woods or Jeff Goldblum? Don't they always like the young teen girls?

libby said...

It was reported forever ago as a 13-year old. If she was actually 16, I apologize for misinforming with my old news.

Wendy Davis said...

Love him too. One of the most beautiful men ever when he was young too. Still is hot for his age.

HannahBanana said...

Word! He was soooo adorable. But now I think he might b too young for this....kinda glad :)

Felicia said...

Tom Selleck? Now on Blue Bloods.

Vera L- said...

I love tom selleck, but quigley, down under and the 3 men and series do not a "smoking hot" movie career make.

Lucas said...

@Libby, yeah. It was a 16 year-old that he picked up at a political convention. Which is just lots of awesome in one place. But I believe he was unaware she was underage.

KendraWM said...

Plus Rob Lowe met her in a bar with her 22 year old friend, I would not expect to meet a 16 year old in a bar and really who asks for a Birth Certificate before hooking up???

It was during the Democratic Convention, HUGE scandal at the time.

Wendy Davis said...

I like Jeff G for this because of his reputation. He is 60. And Jurassic Park was just rereleased in threatres in 3D. I could have sworn I saw an article talking about this in the DM but can't find it.

Wendy Davis said...

Hold on. James is easily old enough too. Saw this very strange role for him on IMDB: iCarly 2009 1 episode as security guard 2. How odd. I might change my answer.

Anna Nonymous said...

Selleck is revealed as being closeted. Rob Lowe is my guess. Him and his wife had big sex scandal a few years back, wife swapping, orgies, hitting on the help, etc.

Wendy Davis said...

Forget both. Way too old. I didn't read the blind closely. However the iCarly role is super bizarre to me.

Lucas said...

Whoa. Selleck in the closet? My poor mother, all those years of lusting after the man. How does that sit with the NRA crowd he runs with?

whodathunkit said...

She wasn't 13. No need to exaggerate to make him more "bad".

Wendy Davis said...

This blind is driving me crazy. What was the money for? Was it hush money? To support a child? Legal punishment? And doesn't the legal age of consent vary state to state?

Nothanksdarlin said...

I don't know if Dennis quaid fits but he was in Great Balls of Fire so that could be all the smoking hot references. I didn't realize he had a rebirth of a carrer but I spen I'll my non mom time on CDANERS instead of TV :)
Also, Kevin Bacon, yes please

All about Eve said...

@Lucas, your poor mother! First Roy Rogers and now Tom Selleck?!

curlyhairslacker said...

Whaaaaaa? Tom Selleck is in the closet? My almost 90 yr old Grandma was hot for him in the Magnum PI days. As a kid, I didnt see it-he had that mustache ewwww! lol

lazyday603 said...

What iCarly episode? The famous guest stars have been Michelle Obama, Jack Black & Emma Stone. Who are you talking about?

Wendy Davis said...

IIMBD: 1 episode 2009 role as "security guard #2". Not even the #1 guard. Sounds like only one step up from an extra, that's all.

luvgossip said...

Tom Selleck is still on my laminated top 5, gay or not. Our kids went to preschool together and he was nothing but nice and gracious and his wife is hilarious! I hope this isn't him.

crila16 said...

I'm thinking Chris O'Donnell maybe?

Tom Selleck is 100% gay. My friend was his driver for 7 years.

crila16 said...

Kiefer Sutherland,
Jeff Daniels,
Alec Baldwin,
William H. Macy,
Don Cheadle,
Charlie Sheen,
Chris O'Donnell,
Kevin Bacon,
Rob Lowe,
Tim Allen
Kevin Spacey

Sherry said...

Jamie2: yeah this is how I remember it AND as I was living in NC at the time we all began to ask what the legal age was. I think he was being honest that he didn't know and I also believe that the 16 yr old was legal in GA. Please do correct me if I am wrong.

libby said...

I was here in Indianapolis, serving a table of bigwig-types years ago, one from LA (entertainment executive, VERY rich). He started whispering stories, but was very careful that I couldn't hear any. Except just once, I surprised him by accident...it was the moment he was revealing to his dinner companions that Selleck is GAY.

I've told that story here before. Obviously it's thirdhand hearsay, but IT FITS.....

libby said...

Btw, I totally had to walk away and pretend I heard nothing. Hilarious.

sylmarillion said...

Rob Lowe. I remember the scandal, after that he was persona non grata for a long time.

CJ said...

Selleck is gay?! My world just tipped on its axis.

ANYWAYS. "Smoking hot" makes me think of someone who was considered a heart throb. David Cassidy?

CJ said...

or maybe Leif Garrett?

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

I was in GA when the Rob Lowe story broke, and yes, it really did a number on his career, even though he didn't know the girl was that young. I don't remember if he was the one filming the threesome or not, but the story I heard was that the girl got hold of the tape and was running around Atlanta showing it to all her friends on the club scene (supposedly every gay hairdresser in metro Atlanta had seen it by the time the story broke; I heard about that from my gay hairdresser in Athens). And yes, he met her at a nightclub where they were carding everyone at the door, including him, so he assumed she was old enough to be there legally...not knowing that her buddies had gotten her in. I always felt bad for him regarding this whole mess; the impression was that he truly had no idea she was so young, and never would have picked her up if he'd realized that.

Mango said...

I'm another one whose mom had the major hots for Tom Selleck. If she were alive she wouldn't believe me if I told her he was gay. (She also thought OJ was innocent.)

Wendy Davis said...

IMDB

Tom Stockdale said...

patrick dempsey...he was huge in movies in the 80's then not much of anything till grey's.

NaughtyNurse said...

This must be an older guy. If you figure she was 15 when it happened, and he was almost 3 X her age at the time, then he was 40-45 when it happened. It sounds like he's been making payments for quite a while, based on the way the item is written. So this is a late-middle age to older pig.

NaughtyNurse said...

That said, Dennis Quaid is the best guess so far!!

EGB said...

Yes, Tom Sellack is gay. My cousin worked very closely with him during the 84 Olympics (in LA) and spoke of it as common knowledge back then. He is out with his close circle, or at least was the whole time she knew him (through the 90's)

Tabitha said...

Hi, I'm a long time reader but first time commenter. I just wanted to say Hi - I'm here in Indy, too!

Circe said...

She was 16, still underage and not legal but 13 would be disgusting.

Hegg said...

This is really disgusting.
St. Elmos 'Fire'/Smoking Hot = Rob Lowe

Anthony Michael Hall. Remember Farmer Ted's smoking hot dance in 16 Candles? :-p

Mystikchic said...

The guy in question seemed to have a long career in tv and then ventured in to films where he had a short, yet successful career. Most of the actors that have been mentioned have all had film careers before venturing into television work. The only actor who fits this blind is Tom Selleck. His biggest film was Three Men and a Baby and if I'm not mistaken, he played a smoking hot actor in that film.

babo said...

I read this about Tom Selleck last night and went to bed hoping it would be a nightmare that would have disappeared in the morning. It has not. My fantasy world has been dealt a massive blow here. Magnum is gay, my longest crush, his legs, his shorts, his cap ... all down the drain. This is a sad weekend for my libido.

Angela said...

Rob Lowe is the obvious guess but, just for fun, it could be...

Jim Caviezel.
Brief, but smoking hot career in movies: The Thin Red Line, Passion of the Christ, Frequency
Almost A list television actor: Person of Interest

Career "rebirth": appropriate around Easter for a devout Christian who played Jesus.

Yxtabay said...

Jim Carrey was s-s-s-smokin' there for a while, now not much besides the movie he's in now ...
