Blind Items Revealed

January 7, 2009

What current Emmy award winning network show has a production assistant who does not do any work related to the production but still gets paid. Oh yes, they get paid by the production company for basically sitting around. Why? Well when the PA is not sitting around he is the drug dealer of choice for about ten of the cast, crew and producers and they want him always close at hand. So, he gets paid for being there and doing nothing, and paid for his drug selling skills. Not a bad gig I guess. Which one does he put on his resume?

Lost

I worked with the guy who married Courtney Stodden

That's what he puts on his resume. Sure thing to be hired, then.

Johnny said...

Best job ever.

Becca Parker said...

There's probably one PA on every set where this is their sole purpose!

Renoblondee said...

Sounds normal for Hollywood!

auntliddy said...

They cant even get their own drugs??!!

timebob said...

well that explains why Lost got so shitty after JJ Abrams left. Everybody was coked out coming up with ridiculous ideas thinking it was genius.

elan said...

lol Becca, it would seem so yes, and a production assistant in charge of casual hookups too.

sandybrook said...

I would think that's the job skill that gets him hired and he doesn't need a stinking resume because he is known in the industry for what he does on set.

explains why Once Upon A Time has also crashed adn burned in a big way; same producers/writers.

texas rose said...

They filmed in Hawaii- probably just some guy with a good weed connection.

Count Jerkula said...

There is someone like that on EVERY union job site across the country. It is how shit gets done.

MrPresident said...

the whole cast got duis too

Becca Parker said...

You're right. It's just baffling why they think sticking all of them on this wretched island with this ridiculous Pan character was a good idea.
The sight of 25 year old men dancing around the fire like 6 year olds imitating Indians in a grade Z western is truly pathetic.

Then there's the reveal from last week as to "SPOILER ALERT"

Who Pan's son is.

Rumple, which makes no sense when you get down to it, because Pan is a boy, an evil one, more like one out of "Lord of the Flies", but in general, boys don't have children.
They've put themselves into a box with this one.

Del Riser said...

@Becca I agree that OUAT is getting to the shark jumping stage. In fact I told my husband is was getting too
"Lost" for me.
And perhaps SPOILER ALERT

You now know how Pan came to have Rumple as his son. He became an adult, had the boy, wanted to fly again, made it back to the island, and the price he had to pay to be a boy again was to give up his son.

As soon as Mickey Mouse shows up I'm done for good.

JSierra said...

OUAT in Wonderland isn't bad, but those special effects really make it hard for me to take anything seriously.

Hammer_Girl said...

I I wanted to like OUATIW, but couldn't make it past the first epi.

facilitator for a hit TV show

or "consultant" for hit TV show

Winnigirl said...

I wouldn't doubt it. My buddy was a PA on Lost for a few years and has great stories.

urban chaos said...

I buy this, much like 75% of actors ask a kitchen for a hook up when out in a new city..

di butler said...

And if there's not one, then the actors hit up behind the scenes ppl. One friend in costuming said she gets hit up for everything imaginable, she thinks it's because she has lots of piercings/tats/funky hair. I think it's because she's just there and handy.

TalksTooMuch said...

Sounds very efficient!

Dezdemona said...

Winnigirl - Great stories from the Lost set???? Spill a few, for pity's sake!

Pink Cashmere said...

If only he could hold a purse and let people call him Sally.

SrslyMike said...

Ha, makes me wonder who needed it the most, and Carlton Cuse, Damon Lindelof and Matthew Fox make the top three.
Also, there was a case where some goons broke into Josh Holloway's Hawaii house and stole his Mercedes. With this BI, it starts looking like some kind of underground repo job.
