Blind Item #5

This show creator of a hit cable show admitted that he let his peen get the best of him when he cast this B- list mostly movie actress in a role for which she was not suited. She said she would sleep with him if she got the part and he really wanted to, she got the part and was hated. She slept with a cast member to get him to stick up for her, but he just blew her off when she tried to get him on her side and keep her on the show.

Matthew Weiner / Jessica Pare / Hammaconda

Stiles

Apatow girls shiri appleby?

Cathy said...

I believe that Jessica Pare slept with Weiner to get the part (we already had a blind about that), but I don't think everyone hates her; she's supposed to be good friends with JJ in real life.

Glitter said...

Yeah, Megan on Mad Men.

Anna Nonymous said...

I second Pare

Boozie said...

Aaron sorkin/Olivia munn/newsroom.

Cathy said...

I like Boozie's guess.

jetfuelgenius said...

Isn't Weiner gay??!

HannahBanana said...

Newsroom, Olivia Munn. She is a really terrible actress.

Sweetiebird said...

I think Pare is really good as Megan... not ill suited at all.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Munn has been reliably wonderful on The Newsroom. I was completely unsold on her as an actress before that show, but she completely sold me.

So, no, not Olivia Munn.

Rebecca said...

I also love Megan! The Munn guess is a good one but she has been on TV a lot, AOTS and The Daily show, and she did a sitcom a year or two ago...

DewieTheBear said...

Nothing else explains Weiner's infatuation with Megan Draper at the expense of more interesting characters (Joan, Ginsberg, Stan, on and on).

Nancy said...

I am not an Olivia Munn fan and I have to admit, she's really good on The Newsroom. I cannot see Sloan going anywhere.
This blind reads as an actress on her way out of the show or is already out.
Depending on where MM goes with Megan, this could be Jessica Pare. Though I think she's done a good job with the part.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Agree with JAS - Munn has gotten a lot better on The Newsroom. Now it's Alison Pill who annoys me.

Seeing as how Alan Ball is gay it's not anyone from True Blood.

sandybrook said...

Yeah Minn is one of the featured people on that show. Shes terrible and her blotchy face looks really bad but shes staying.

Boozie said...

Idk I didn't think the blind said she was going anywhere. I actually don't mind munn on the show but she feels awkwardly cast and we all know how sorkin is. It didn't say she was bad in the role just Ill cast. I'm sticking w munn.

fedwaymom said...

I was hoping they would get rid of Megan now I know why she gets so much screen time and is married to my fantasy husband on the show.

Liz said...

Charlie Sheen/Selma Blair?

Unknown said...

evan rachel wood on true blood

parissucksliterally said...

I think Matthew Weiner is gay......

Jason said...

Weiner has slept with a woman at least once before. The kid who plays Glen is his son.

This would certainly explain so much about why she went from being a nanny to one of the featured cast members within a couple of episodes.

nudibelle said...

pare was in movies before?

Rose said...

Jeez VIP, I'm glad I was at home and not at work when I clicked on that link. A warning would have been nice.

libby said...

You guys didn't know that's how Pare got that bigger part? Yeah, she is/was Weiner's GF. Explains the un-sexy 'zooby-zoo-dance' atrocity that EVERYONE CRINGED over except dipshit Weiner.....Love is blind to her talentless-ness.


I hope this blind is them, so Megan is DEFINITELY gone next season.

Dasha said...

Ewww at the thought of having to make sexy times with Aaron Sorkin. Vomit in my mouth.

Momster said...

Pare was in Lost and Delirious and the classic Hot Tub Time Machine, among other movies.

ruby said...

its that buck-toothed biatch Jessica Pare

Alanna said...

I'd go with Pare, but the "mostly movies" thing doesn't quite fit. Before being cast as Megan, Pare had done a lot of work in both TV and movies, including a second-lead in "Jack & Bobby". Throughout season 4 of MM, I kinda suspected something was going to happen with her because she had a far bigger resume than the actors who are usually cast as receptionists. (Same thing last season with James Wolk as Bob Benson.) She might have slept with someone to get the part, but the part was always intended to be much bigger -- I suspect it wasn't a case of her dropping trou after filming was underway.

And for the record, I say this as someone who isn't exceptionally fond of Pare or Megan but likes them well enough. I'm just weary of the disproportionate pileon that they get from Mad Men fans who won't rest until someone takes a knife and chops her into itty bitty pieces. I guess I feel the need to defend all the female characters that fans loathe. (I've never even watched Breaking Bad, but I want to take up arms on Skyler's behalf. *g*)

Massive G said...

Weiner is a fudgepacking cocksucker. This is Janusry Jones morons

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Matthew Weiner is in fact straight.

DewieTheBear said...

Libby, don't remind us that 'next season' is 'last season' :(

Thing is, I wouldn't hate Megan/Pare if her screen time weren't so wildly disproportionate to other characters with more backstory. I am still pissed that Weiner said something to the effect of it being obvious Joan won Avon when the story line was dropped after "A Tale of Two Cities." No asshole, it wasn't obvious, which is why so many people were clamoring for a follow-up about it and, incidentally, hoping that Megan would be killed at the end of the season.

Sorry, #MadMenNerd.

B626 said...

Yup

Seven of Eleven said...

@Dewie, fellow Mad Men nerd and I agree with you 100%. The Avon storyline was as big as Pete and Detroit, but instead we had to watch The Trials and Tribulations of Megan Draper, Actress and Wronged Wife.

thoushaltnotgossip said...

I think this might be the True Blood fiasco with Evan Rachel Wood and Alexander Skarsgaard.(sp)??

HolidayinCambodia said...

I was hoping for Sasha Grey, except 1) she's not B-, I think, and 2) how could she not be suited for a role in which she played herself?

Count Jerkula said...

David Chase, Aida Tuturro, Paully Walnuts

@holiday in Cambodia: Sasha's performance was almost az wooden as I was, so she played herself pretty well. I hope she comes back to porn if she ever gets knocked up. She would be HOT pregnant.

Sasha is my all time fave porn whore. Here is the top 5

Sasha Grey
Gauge
Taylor Rain
Maryanne
Stoya, for now. 5th spot changes sometimes.

Secondbecky said...

Emmy Rossum.

MadLyb said...

I think Jessica Pare is perfect for the role of Megan. She reminds me of '60's icon Jane Birkin. It could be her, though.

Dani said...

Dammit, VIP!

Rach Around said...

Ruby: buck toothed ninny. She grinds my gears

Rach Around said...

Libby: that dance was truly cringeworthy. Seriously.

Rach Around said...

Massive G: homophobic much? Are you the type of homophobe who lurks around beat toilets and glory holes?

April Walsh said...

I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Megan on Mad Men, but I don't blame the actress. I think she does well enough. It's the character that's a child bride cipher. Not saying this couldn't be true, but I don't think the actress is that bad. I actually liked her french song.
