Blind Item #7- Kindness

This foreign born B list mostly television actor is best known for an internationally famous long term role that is bigger than the actors who play it. Anyway, our actor has been filming a movie in a very small town and has made it a point to spend every second possible that he is not working interacting with the people of the town. He could seriously run for mayor at this point. There is not just one specific act of kindness but he just makes himself available for photos and autographs and talking about acting and the show he was on and the movie and has never denied a request by anyone in town.

Dr Who?

Discobitch said...

Tennant or Smith

Derek Harvey said...

thats not really a kindness. Thats just not being a jackass..

Seven of Eleven said...

I wish this was Daniel Craig, but I know it's not. :/

Discobitch said...

I say smith since tennant is filming the us broadchurch

TalksTooMuch said...

Are we a DC fan, Seven?

Tru Leigh said...

TMZ is reporting that Wayne Knight was killed in a car crash.

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Thankfully it's just a hoax.

msgirl said...

Definitely a Doctor, I'd say Tennant since he's filming another TV series. Don't think he'll be back for Broadchurch since he was so sick.

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Tru Leigh, I'm pleased to be able to report that no, he's not.

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM, maybe just a little bit. I would not turn down an evening with him and Rachel Weisz. I've had a girl crush on her forever (well, since The Mummy and she got to make out with then-hot Brandon Frasier) and Daniel Craig isn't unpleasant to look at.

Um, my RSVP might have caught fire. Damn it!

Bacon Ranch said...

Tennant needs to come to my town.

TalksTooMuch said...

Brendan Frasier was indeed something to look at backinthaday, around Of Gods and Monsters time? And RW did have all those lips

th47 said...

Tennant is filming a TV mini-series on Victoria Island in British Columbia, so this could fit him. The blind refers to a movie but that could just be a mistake.

Sunshine said...

TMZ is a d-bag. I suppose they'll next report that Newman was not a real mailman.

Ray Nicolet said...

Check out BF in Airheads..wowza. Who am I kidding tho, I will always watch a movie that hes in (even George of the Jungle..)

TalksTooMuch said...

I love you Ray. I thought I was the only person in the whole world that saw Airheads!

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Not that Tennant isn't a sweetheart, and entirely credible for this one, I think Matt Smith may fit it better. The love he has for fans -- especially kids -- is legendary, and he's got a history of going out of his way for some, and I believe he's currently filming in America.

Seven of Eleven said...

I fell in love with Brendan Frasier in Mrs Winterbourne.

Seven of Eleven said...

Not that Tennant isn't a sweetheart

Even I don't have a gif worthy of JAS calling Dr Who a sweetheart.

I have to agree that this is Matt Smith. He's been known to be very good to DW fans.

Seven of Eleven said...

I lied.

Ray Nicolet said...

Love you back TTM. Airheads is one of my favorites, I could watch it every day!

Violet said...

Matt, David, Peter - it's a triumvirate of amazingness. How could you possibly pick between them?

Tara said...

This is either a Who cast member or a Bond. I'd like to pick David because I just adore him, but Smith is just as fine a guess too.

Ray Nicolet said...

YUP! I celebrate the man's entire filmography.

Alita said...

Bacon :)

Waiting on the tenth doctor to visit mine!

He can bring David Tennant's original accent though. Fun fact: David Tennant chose his stage name from Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop Boys. Original surname is MacSomething (unsurprisingly).

Sass71 said...

True that @Violet. David could be all up in my TARDIS anytime.

Chief2224 said...

I so want to believe that the Dr. Who guys are sweethearts in real life. My boys are obsessed with the show so it's nice to think that if they're ever lucky enough to meet one of the guys, it would be a great experience.

By the way, did anybody see the video of the newest Dr (sorry, can't remember his name...my boys would be SO disappointed) talking to a young fan? It was very sweet and makes me want to watch the show with the new guy.

OneEyeCharlie said...

FWIW... I like Airheads as well.

"Who would win in a wrestling match , Lemmy or God?"

Ray Nicolet said...

Trick question, Lemmy is God!

NaughtyNurse said...

Pierce Brosnan?

TalksTooMuch said...

Ah Charlie, just when I didn't think I could love you more!

I loved the Van Halen refs

8=====D aka Lil Tool. KermitGosnellKnobJockey said...

So he could be the mayor because he is not a jackass? I totally agree with Derek here, he is just doing his job.

Otherwise, most waiters (and a lot of jobs) could be American mayors because they do the same, and earning less for it.

Peter Capaldi is the new doctor can't wait to see his series :)

OT Stephen Moffats sister was my primary school teacher n met him when our school won a "make a school newspaper" comp when he was doing Press Gang :)

(Yes I'm aware of how lame I sound xD)

MommaBear said...

@NaughtyNurse, I thought the same thing. Remington Steele for the tv show, and James Bond for the internationally famous role. But, has he done any more tv than Remington? I really want it to be him, have always loved the guy.

Countess Eden said...

Eww to Brendan Fraser...I just can't watch him in anything...def not my type. He was Encino man... Daniel Craig? Maybe.

This about a Bond, James Bond.

NaughtyNurse said...

Pierce is 50-50 TV-movies over the course of his career. He has always been a gent, so I'm sticking with him.

sandybrook said...

Brendan Fraser isn't Brendan Fraser anymore.

Mari (from her other mail acct.) said...

Pierce Brosnan is filming a movie, on location, so add me to his list.
Oh I wish that I was on his list! :)

auntliddy said...

First off, a kindness blind is mucho welcome in this sea of dark behavior. Whoever it is, person above nailed it, he's just not being an asshole. For any GOT fans, there is a speech king joffrey/dont know his name- gives about fame and how he really doesnt think hes any different than before he "just pretended to be mean" on a cable show. He further said he's invited to alot of acting q and a's, but he says at 21 he really cant fill an hour! Sounds like hes got his head on straight with good perspective on fame game.

B626 said...

Yes Brosnan he did a Mini series on Lifetime not too long ago

Cee Kay said...

Airheads, yay! Mrs. Winterbourne, GofJ, etc. too. I loved Brendan Fraser with a serious passion. He makes me sad now.

gail from Long Island said...

Does Benedict Cumberland fit?

sugarbread maker said...

i was thinking cumberbatch for Sherlock holmes too.

wala lang said...

Alexander Skarsgard... vampires are long-term, and the Sookie Stackhouse books are globally popular.

Henriette said...

Pierce Brosnan! He's filming something and was James Bond.

PotPourri said...

Love Brosnan! He's wonderful...

Don't understand how Brendan Fraser fell from glory?

MadLyb said...

I love Pierce Brosnan! Super nice guy.

David Tennant?

me said...

My first thought was Matt Smith, but it can't be since he's on stage with London. So David Tennant.

timidon said...

This may be David Tennant. He's been filming "Gracepoint" for FOX in Victoria BC. I think calling the project a movie was just an error. Anyway, I've been closely following reports of the filming & he's been spotted all over (airport, Walmart, on set, wherever) & there are many photos & stories out there from people who've met him. By all accounts he's quite nice.

By the way, this is my first post, but I am a long-time lurker. Love this site!

mcmama said...

@seven everything except the mostly TV had me believing it was

Lisa said...

Benedict completely fits and I'm wondering where he's filming now.

C. Cascante said...

Could be Eccleston. Filming HBO series The Leftovers in small towns near NYC. Actually all the actors who have played The Doctor are great.

rain said...

cumby for the win, being the internationally famous role (sherlock) that is definitely a long term one -- c'mon 2016 for season 4?!

CMO said...

Henry Cavill. He is filming the Man of Steel sequel outside of Detroit. He ALWAYS poses with fans and admirers. Everyone has nothing but nice things to say about him. He was mostly known for the tv show The Tudors prior to MOS
