Blind Item #4

This former A list mostly television actor who was in some of the biggest television shows of all-time took some time off from acting. Not because he wanted but because his wife told him she would tell the world about his violent temper and his beatings unless he went to therapy. The wife made our actor go every day for a year before she let him even think about acting again. He ended up taking almost two years off before working again this year.

FOX

Lost ended in 2010. His next project came out in 2012

Mandy Patinkin? (sp) Known for his fits on sets and walking away from hit series. Didn't he just get something this year?

Matthew fox

WareCat said...

dammit MerryB.
i thought u meant Michael J. Fox.

Kristin said...

Fox is a good guess. Eric Dane also has a two year gap in his career and just started a new show.

LottaColada said...

@MerryB you got it

V said...

@Bacon, Mandy is in Homeland which premiered in 2011.

MerryB said...

Oh never, MJF is amazing. Matthew Fox is not.

Bacon Ranch said...

Ahh thanks V :) Good to know he's just a diva, not a beata (see what I did there?)

I'll show myself out.

Christopher meloni.

V said...

Lol Bacon!

If I recall he left Criminal Minds because of the gratuitous violence. Unfortunately, he was immune to the wonder that is Shemar Moore :)

Harry Knuckles said...

Sounds like Mathew Fox, but isn't he a heavy drinker? Punched a lady bus driver in the crotch when he was drunk. There's no mention of drinking in the blind. Still sounds like Fox though.

Kristin said...

Matthew Fox was filming the mess that is WWZ in 2011/2012. That kind of messes up the timeline.

lazyday603 said...

His name is Inigo Montoya. You killed his father. Prepare to die.

Kristin said...

@auntliddy Hush your mouth! I spent all my researching time making sure it WASN'T him.

auntliddy said...

Kris, lol, like him too.

"This former A list mostly television actor who was in some of the biggest television shows of all-time" - Lost, okay. Po5??? GTFO.

Gayeld said...

Matthew Fox was in WWZ? Did he get cut or did I just not notice him?

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Can't be Meloni. AFter Law and Order SVU he immediately went off to film True Blood. Which was like a year ago.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

Matthew Fox is a woman beater, his co star Dominic Monaghan outed him on Twitter. he HATES him.

MerryB said...

His very small part got cut.

Simon said...

Yea, fox was supposed to have a big role in WWZ but he ended up on the cutting room floor. Oh and who did the cutting? None other than Damon Lindelof ....

marlolovespaty said...

Kelsey Grammar. Cheers and Frasier are considered among the biggest television shows of all time.

Kristin said...

@gayeld he played a Soldier. It got cut down to a blink and you'll miss him part, but he was there for a while filming. They reshot most of WWZ.

tara17 said...

Good for anyone to address their issues. However, this person is super screwed if there's no improvement after 2 years of therapy.

Topper Madison said...

Kelsey Grammer

Essie said...

The only time I saw Matthew Fox in WWZ was when he jumped off a helicopter to save Brad Pitt. Even then he was wearing a helmet so I had to guess it was him. He must have had a big part in the scenes that were cut out during the reshoot. Maybe they will let him be in WWZ2.

I have no clue who the BI is about.

Sean said...

Fox was also in that awful Alex Cross movie. I just assumed we all tried to erase that from our memories.

Gayeld said...

I swear, I did not notice him at all. I'll have to pay closer attention when I get the movie back from my nephew.

Shit You Can't Buy said...

@Simon: Guess Damon did get his revenge eventually ;)

Kelsey is a very good guess btw. Eventhough I doubt he lets a chick tell him what to do, dude seems completely delusional.

evie2345 said...

Matthew Fox only really had obe huge hit show.
Kelsey would make sense for Cheers and Frasier, and has a 2 year gap from 2011-2013. I hope he really did go to therapy, he is one messed up dude.

audrey said...

I thought Kelsey Grammar had a cable show.

SophiaB said...

Oh Gawd is he amazing? Never thought a bit about him til @VIP posted him rising naked from the foams seas. Will never recover.
