Blind Item #3

This A list mostly television actor is A list because of his role. It is unique, but he still gets classified as A list. Everyone knows his role. He went off on a waiter at a restaurant this week for getting his order wrong and chewed the guy out while our actor's wife tried to get him to calm down. He then started in on his wife for interrupting him.

Well it's not particularly nice behaviour but I've heard worse. More interesting is the uniqueness of the A lister's role (if I can sum up any enthusiasm for such a dull blind).

rajahcat said...

well i might have said Keifer for this one but he's not married....

cranky ass-I can't stand when people abuse waiters

Karen said...

Is this implying someone like Mads Mikkelsen who plays Hannibal Lecter? Everyone knows that role, but I had no idea what the guy's name was.

Jessi said...

I'm stumped. Unique is throwing me off.

BigBig Lobster said...

Brian Cranston?

campchristy said...

I would say Aaron Paul or Bryan Cranston, because it is unique that they are both A list. But they both seem so nice, especially Aaron Paul.

Karen said...

What about Peter Capaldi, the new Doctor in Doctor Who?

Bozo

CoBe said...

Are you hassling the Hoff?

OneEyeCharlie said...

Damn, Karen! You're firing on all 12 cylinders today. Great guess.

SometimesJenny said...

Alec Baldwin

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

I'll go with Jason Momoa/Khal Drago which is still a reoccurring role/Lisa Bonet for the wife

Karen said...

@Charlie, it seems like I get lucky on these guesses all at once with huge dry spells in between.

There's gotta be a joke about somebody's love life in what I just wrote.

Seven of Eleven said...

I once went on a date with a guy who seemed nice but you know what they say - watch how they treat service people, and you'll see their true colors. Douchelord snapped at a waitress for interrupting us talking (how dare she ask if we'd like to order!) and then made a show of complaining about the food, the service, the drinks, etc., all the while trying to be Mr Charming when he talked to me.

Never did find my way back from the bathroom.

OneEyeCharlie said...

Ummmmmm..... yeah.

rajahcat said...

Bryan would never

MontanaMarriott said...

Dinklage?

JJ said...

Kramer

RonMotta said...

I don't see it being Peter Capaldi. By all accounts, I've seen him being incredibly kind and nice to fans, so I don't see him going off on a waiter, especially in public. And I wouldn't classify Capaldi as A-list, in this country, anyway.

So....I'm going to guess William Shatner.

msgirl said...

Mads has done a ton of movies, sure mostly foreign but still not mostly TV. So I don't think it's him. Of course Enty doesn't know foreign films!

La Minette Grincheuse said...

Also, Capaldi is mostly movie, not mostly TV, and why would fake Enty #xx have scoop from across the pond?

I like the Shatner guess. He seems nice to other celebrities, but not necessarily someone nice to regular people.

EvieShackles said...

Sounds like Baldwin to me! Agree w/Jenny....

Karen said...

@RonMotta, I'd agree that Capaldi isn't A list--the wording implies that the star of Doctor Who is A list no matter who it is. If it's him, of course.

EvieShackles said...

I change my guess to Brian from Breaking Bad... Didn't pay enough attention to the unique role and everyone knows him for it...

Countess Eden said...

Good for you Seven. Everyone should HAVE to wait tables to understand how to treat people in general, but absolutely in the service industry.

I think this is ALEC

Violet said...

Ok, back to the dull blind just to say no way on God's earth is it Peter Capaldi. He is lovely (I have it on good authority - my own, just because) and he is very well known (here at least) for many more roles than just Dr Who. The Thick of It anyone?

Canasta said...

I think he's mostly movies and he's awesome!!!

Sherry said...

Bryan would never. Jason Mamoa isn't doing a recurring role that I am aware of. He pretty much died it seems and haven't seen any flashbacks to him.
Don't know Dr.Who but Violet says no.
Hate to say The Shat but it could be.

And yeah,when you're an asshole to a service person you die and go to hell and wait tables for eternity.

Celimene said...

Not Mads. He's separating from his wife, and from what I've heard, in the doghouse in the US for making a drunken ass of himself at the Golden Globes. He's likely on his best behavior in public.

rajahcat said...

:) Sherry

Sillygurl said...

Noooooooooo stopppppp itttttttt. Lol

Sillygurl said...

No she's only on 11 because that guess is unacceptable!!! Lollz

Sillygurl said...

Thank you Voice of Reason!

Sillygurl said...

Grrrrr

Count Jerkula said...

Kelsey Grammer. Unique because he played the same role on 2 shows for 20yrs.

Tara said...

I could see this as Mads because of the role and "chewed the guy out". I hope it's not Cranston - I've never heard anything bad about him. Kelsey Grammar could be - Frasier is a 20-year-long role and he's definitely a jerk in real life.

crila16 said...

I'd say Kelsey Grammer?

SueRH said...

Bryan Cranston is supposedly a really nice guy.

LowKey said...

Jason seems like a pretty chill dude, can't see this being him.
But if he's been a bad boy and needs punished....

scarletscout said...

MAGNUM P.I! a/k/a Tom Selleck

califblondy said...

I dated that guy too, but unfortunately came back from the bathroom. It wasn't but a couple of months before he was talking to me like crap. I left him in a parking lot yelling my name as I walked away.

Dena said...

Could it be someone who provides a voice but doesn't actually appear on the show? I'm thinking someone like Dan Castellaneta who is the voice of Homer Simpson (although I know nothing about him, just throwing him out as an example).

shelly said...

And Peter Capaldi was in dangerous liasons (bestest movie ever) the dr would never.

Malibu Borebee said...

It's not Cranston. He wouldn't treat a waiter or his wife like that. Nicest guy you'll ever know.

Maybe Dempsey.

nancer said...

how can someone be A list that i've never heard of. i get the 'role' part. but he says 'A list actor' so shouldn't i have heard of him??

Wee S said...

I love The Thick of It. Dropped a Tucker-ism on someone today and they couldn't stop laughing.

he was great in The Musketeers too.

di butler said...

Hugh Laurie-House

texas rose said...

Agree nancer - certainly not capaldi?? or mads guy.

Lauren Shelley said...

Don Draper (except that lady isn't his wife, just a long time partner)

Bubbles said...

Peter Dinklage - His role on Game of Thrones is truly unique, high-profile and also won him a Golden Globe, making him A list.

sugarbread maker said...

ooh he's getting a divorce??? what did he do at gg?? dish please!!! i need deets!! i guess i have to put him on google stalk alerts now

sugarbread maker said...

oh yes ASS inserted is his known role on every show.. good guess count.. i can always rely on @count ftassist

JoeyJoeJoeJrShabadoo said...

I think Jon Hamm, fits as a good guess.

texas rose said...

Hamm is not married.

What about Seinfeld? Unique, because he is playing himself, so not really acting? He can be a jerk.

To those who guessed Brian Cranston or even Aaron Paul.... Couldn't be farther from the truth. I have seen Brian out several times, and he seems like the most unassuming kind person. He doesn't act "famous" or have any airs that anyone might recognizes. He blends in and is super pleasant. Aaron is as sweet and humble as they come.

sugarbread maker said...

Maybe she didn't see him? Totes not her fault.

Katie said...

Keifer is sooooo nice. One of the few Hollywood guys who's not an a-hole, sober or drunk
