Blind Items Almost Revealed

April 26, 2013

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.

It's not Shia. This actor solely owes any fame he has to the franchise role. He was in nothing before it.

i would agree with the Sam Worthington (Avatar) guess, but that's not a franchise, is it...

FSP said...

Tobey

Zee Noxgoddess said...

Danielle Radcliff?

Meatros said...

My guesses are:
Radcliff,
R-Patz

TanGyal said...

Avatar is a franchise now...

sandybrook said...

I guess it cant be Fraser because he was known before Mummy and Dan Rad works. Hayden seems like a good guess but I thought he was just so poor an actor he couldn't get work.

MBK said...

Pattison

Tara said...

Dan was also in a few movies before Potter.

Rosso said...

Bloom or one of the people in the Twilight films...never watched any so no idea who anyone is in those films or if they've been in other things.

Also possibly Daniel Radcliffe, he's admitted some drinking issues but seems mostly to keep control enough at least to keep working.

Hits123 said...

Not RP - was in Harry Potter and a few other things before Twilight. It says this person was in nothing before. I'm liking the Radcliffe guess.

Runswithscissors said...

Can't be bloom and Radcliffe, they would've lost their gigs in theatre. There is no way this (blind item) person would've been able to work in theatre.

Fraser is well known because of his pre Mummy movies: air Heads, Blast from the Past, With Honors, School Ties, George of the Jungle.

Brenda L said...

This is Pattinson.

Runswithscissors said...

There's tons of no talent people working: Jessica biel, hell! January Jones! Horrible actress!, shit! Arnold Schwarzenneger is still around!

Sherry said...

This reads like Daniel Radcliffe but like mentioned, he does theatre and there would be n intervention before they just decided he wasn't worth it. He's actually a good actor.

What are the "franchises?"
Harry Potter
Pirates of the Carribean
Transformers
Mission Impossible
Spiderman
Bourne
Avengers
Terminator
Twilight series
Bond
Jurassic Park
Star Wars
Lethal Weapon
Planet of the Apes
Narnia
X-Men..Long list really

MontanaMarriott said...

Wasn't Worthington in the Clash of the Titans franchise though before Avatar?

Gal Friday said...

Zac Efron?

Renoblondee said...

Yes he was @Montana.
Also RPatz was in Harry Potter before Twilight.

Discobitch said...

Taylor lautner

Jennabean said...

Taylor Lautner was in spy kids

sbalb said...

Taylor Lautner? Are you forgetting the smash masterpiece that was Shark Boy and Lava Girl???? I guarantee you my now-teenage nieces haven't! I do kinda like the astronomy guess, though, given all we've learned about him since April.

Empress of Socks said...

Bloom was in LOTR and pirates, not to mention was one of the few returning characters for the Hobbit, if he was such a mess I'm sure they wouldn't have brought him in for that

sbalb said...

Gah, that was supposed to say Zac Efron guess.

msgirl said...

Radcliffe is filming Frankenstein right now. Phew!

crila16 said...

I would say Brendan Faser, but he was acting before The Mummy. The Mummy did make him an A list, but he still was a working actor.

Orlando has nothing going on, except for another Hobbit movie.

Zac Efron is another good guess.

crila16 said...

Oh darn...forgot Orly was in Pirate AND the Lord of the Rings...so probably not him.

I'm going with Brendan or Zac.

Count Jerkula said...

I agree with Scissors about Anakin Skywalker. He is my go to guess whenever a blind mentions Franchise and Doesn't Work. C+ might be a little too high of a rating though.

Snootches said...

Mc Lovin

sarah.estell said...

What about Zac Efron? Franchise would be HS Musical. I don't know....

Furriner said...

I was going to say Chris Tucker, but he was in stuff before Rush Hour....

Kloie said...

I like the Taylor Lautner guess. Assume Enty thinks Twilight was his first real movie.

Tabi said...

McCauley Culken

EllenPo said...

Sadly this sounds like Daniel Radcliffe. The blind says he acheived is former A status from a franchise, not that it was his first role. And he has done well in theater, but again, it states he's had a tough time with work lately. He was very forthcoming a couple of years ago about his alcoholism, saying he was out of control and even drinking during filming of HP, but that he quit. There were a lot of rumors going around this year he was off the wagon.

CriticalPeach said...

Most of these actors have been in stuff before....even daniel was in a lot of TV stuff in britain (David Copperfield) and the thing he's in with Jon Hamm is doing really well here. Have no idea. Rob pattison was in Harry Potter before too.

Nothanksdarlin said...

Hayden was in a Kevin Cline movie called Life as a House before his franchise.
Great flick

Monica said...

Kellan Lutz

AnalogExperience said...

Johnny Knoxville, duh

Hegg said...

Hmmmm, yeah, both DanRad and Pattinson have been successful in things since their big franchises. Not to the same popularity of course. They both do drink heavily though.
I don't think Hayden C. is a drinker. Hmmm.

Geebz said...

K Lutz@Monica

Red said...

Not Orlando. He's a regular on "Homeland".

ninotchka said...

Taylor Lautner, the poor closeted, stage-daddy-nightmare little thing, or Pattinson - with Pattinson having a bigger rep as a hard drinker.

Hayden Christiansen's another poor thing, but I don't know if he's been on any job that didn't involve selling his ass in quite some time.

Zac Efron's not a bad guess either. Not subtle, given his recent travails, but he's still a contender.

I'll go with Lautner since RPatz has picked up more work.

R Pattz
