Blind Item #1

This aging former A list mostly movie actor who has a nice career resurgence with a hot franchise might be more famous for who he sired than his own work, at least with a younger generation. Anyway, our actor looked great running up and down the street for his CrossFit class and when he finished walked over to his car parked right in the street in a disabled spot. Our actor even has the disabled placard. Nice.

One of those old guys with wrinkles balls from The Expendables

Hey Statham :)

Billy Ray!

the more famous offspring is throwing me.

I keep thinking Chris Pine and his dad, but his dad was never A list anything (except in my heart, the fresh scent of Robert Pine).

TalksTooMuch said...

Bruce Willis! And I would pay money to see him sweat his ass off in CrossFit

Oh dragon. Smh!

Some disabilities aren't physically visible, like epilepsy. But hey, what do I know.

Vera L- said...

Donald and Kiefer.

Vera L- said...

hollywood, if you are epileptic, you shouldn't be driving.

The Real Dragon said...

Damn I didn't even read the sired. Nvm no wrinkles expendables

Seven of Eleven said...

Possibly Bruce Willis (Red, Red 2) with the younger generation being more familiar with his daughters

Candyland said...

I was thinking Jon Voight as I read this...

FSP said...

You know enough hd. Not all disabilities are physically visible.

Ah-nold

@lotta *smirks*

Candyland said...

Taking back Voight guess. Didn't realize how much TV he's been doing! I'm not sure that it's Bruce though...

TalksTooMuch said...

That's not true, Vera. Typically there is a period after a grand mal seizure wherein an epileptic is not allowed to drive, up to a year. Then they are reassessed, and get their licenses back. I have several friends that are epileptic, they all went through this process and drive.

@Vera Co-sign Donald and Kiefer. Donald's on Hunger Games

Vera L- said...

TTM, you're right, I worked with a paramedic who lost driving privileges completely (at work) because he was epileptic, but for personal autos they are much more lenient.

I really like the Donald/Kiefer guess too. Hot/Catching Fire. heh.

Cheryl said...

If it is Donald Sutherland, he is an old dude. He might have a disability we don't know about, even if he is able to do a fitness class.

Cleodacat said...

I agree with Jon Voight.

Danielle Williams said...

I was thinking Jon Voight,
Angelina father.

Anna Belle said...

One of the ex action stars that are really old & gross in person...in the expendables....

Sherry said...

How many times have you been at the gym and someone bitched about how far they had to park? I would guess gyms in h'wd have valets. I think it might be the Donald too.

Eric Roberts, The Dark Knight and A Talking Cat!?!

I have a disabilitly placard and I get dirty looks all the time from people. I have a nerve condition and cant carry heavy things to the car like kids etc. But I rarely park in those spots unless there is lots of open disabled spots.

hollywood dime said...

@ vera AGREED my SO is epileptic and finally had his drivers license revoked but prior to that we had ( and still have) a placard. I usually use it when I drive him around.

auntliddy said...

I too had disabled placard because of severe arthritis, but some days I didnt look disabled at all, somedays i was hobbling. Well changed states, and this state doesnt consider me disabled, lol. So if u want miracle cure, move here. Anyway, bottom line, you hv no idea why person had placard so just keep mouth shut.

di butler said...

Eric is A list? Hmmm. Maybe. Him or Voight, I guess. What about James Brolin? I guess he's more A list tv...

Kimba said...

I have a scary biker neighbour, tats on his bald head and neck, he's got a Volvo and a specialized Harley Davisdon Dodge - he has a handicap hanger on his mirror, tho he's perfectly fine. Nobody would dare call him on it, too scared too, so he has easy breezy parking.
He gets the top spot at the mall.
He's such a dick, but I gotta play nice with him, cause we live in the country and he's our guard dog. I give him eggs instead of having a beer with him.
I hate people who do shit like that, it's a bully move.

NomNom83 said...

Maybe this guy is a dick. Maybe.

But, no, you cannot tell if someone is handicapped just by looking at them or based on their activity (even if they just worked out). Take it up with the DMV, but not all handicaps are people literally limping or wheeling around.

Like I said, maybe he's a dick. Then again, maybe he isn't.

Cory said...

My neighbor got a placard for when he was driving his mother around. He uses it all the time, even when his mother isn't in the car. I was tempted to call DMV since he is such a dick but I'm afraid he'll find out who called.

sarah.estell said...

Excellent guess on the Sutherlands.

RowdyRodimus said...

I have a handicapped placard and to see me you wouldn't know I needed one. In fact, I went to pick up my brother from college (he was registering and his car was in the shop), had to go in to get him, parked in a handicap spot with the placard, the school security saw me put the placard away to drive and stopped me. I told him I moved it because it is against the law to drive with it in the mirror and he aid he didn't care but that I didn't need it so he was giving me a citation (like I was ever going back there again, why would I pay it anyway?) and I said come with me and made him follow me to my old history professors office and let him explain to the guard why I had it. My professor had spent a lot of time coming to the hospital to see me after my stroke since I was one of his two favorite students (the other being my girlfriend at the time) and he just went off on the guard and threatened to make sure the people at the top heard about him harassing people.

Meg said...

I had a friend in college who had a handicap placard for her car. Campus security saw her get out of the car and jumped all over her for "faking" a handicap. She popped off her artificial leg (!!!) and handed it to the guard.

How could anybody miss the irony of going to a gym to get fit & then complaining about the walk from the car to the gym? No wonder satire fails so often. Zero self awareness.

Donald Southerland

Jacq said...

A family friend has MS and looks perfectly normal, but she is legit sick and has permanent disabled plates. You can't tell from looking at someone what is going on with them. This case sounds like a fraud, tho

It's true, you can't always tell by looking what disability a person has. But having said that, my SIL has a placard and that bitch has not a damn thing wrong with her other than mental illness.

And my mom has epilepsy, and she in no way qualifies for a disabled parking placard.

C'estMoi said...

I like the John Voight guess, but throwing James Caan out there, too.

Exactly my thoughts!! lol
