Blind Item #8

This former A+ list mostly movie actor still was arguably the greatest at one role which has seen many actors. He has a significant other but for the past two weeks has been spotted emerging from the home of this A list mostly movie actress after her kids go to school.

Brosnan or Craig?

Tricia Shaw said...

Brosnan and Winslet

trainrides said...

Roger Moore

sandybrook said...

Sean Connery

Unknown said...

Would Brosnan really be considered better than Connery in that role?

sandybrook said...

Well that's good we all think a different Bond was the best one.

Tricia Shaw said...

Connery has dementia I think and too old(as is) Moore who was MY fave Bond..to renevouz with a woman young enough to have have kids going to school, I think anyway

Lady Heisenberg said...

The only other character that comes to kind other than a Bond right now would be Johnny Depp as Hunter S Thompson, which was also played by Bill Murray and I think maybe one other actor?

TalksTooMuch said...

One of the Who Doctors? I love Pierce Brosnan but I can't see him being the best Bond. OR messing around. What are some other iconic roles...

FSP said...

R
D
J

Sherlock Holmes

Tricia Shaw said...

Craig was least impressive of the lot....not him for this BI anyway lol

Jessi said...

Though I do think Connery is the best, with Craig being a close 2nd, I think this is Craig. No one wants that nasty stinkin drunk Connery all up on them.

ButterKwup said...

Timothy Dalton and Julia Roberts!

Nailed it!

MontanaMarriott said...

Or someone who played Batman there have been
Michael Keaton
Clooney
Val Kilmer
Bale

sandybrook said...

Roger Moore is older than Sean Connery. :)

hippy chk said...

Michael Keaton!

Jennifer said...

Michael Keaton? I wouldn't consider Brosnon mostly movie or A+. I'm thinking Batman and I'd still consider Bale A+ list currently.

Noel said...

What/who is Michael Keaton doing these days?? Still my favorite batman.

Cocoa said...

No one thought Batman, huh. Can't make it work, anyway.

Seven of Eleven said...

Brosnan has said he thought he wasn't a very good Bond and can't watch himself in those movies. I've never watched a Bond movie, but I did love him with Rene Russo in The Thomas Crown affair. I think I need to watch that again...

LOL @ ButterKwup!

Pierce Brosnan: My James Bond was 'never good enough'

Lady Heisenberg said...

George Clooney?

Cocoa said...

Fine! Post while I'm typing!

MontanaMarriott said...

Wouldn't have Enty stated wife as opposed to significant other? All the Bonds with the exception of Dalton are married.

Sus said...

Connery must be dick-o-pausic by now. Please, men over 50 and Scottish, DO NOT read my comment.

ButterKwup said...

+1!

ButterKwup said...

It could be:

Bond
Batman
Superman (although Reeves is dead)
Spider-Man
Holmes
Robin Hood

EvieShackles said...

Batmen: Keaton, Bale, Kilmer, Clooney... which of these has "significant others" and not wives?

TalksTooMuch said...

Oooh, I like Cumberbach as Sherlock waaaay better!

Jennifer said...

They posted while I was typing too, Cocoa. Bastards!

Nutty_Flavor said...

It would be hard to argue that Clooney was the best Batman.

EvieShackles said...

Agreed.. Bale's the best (IMO). But he's married... so, guess not him.

Lady Heisenberg said...

True, but the mention of the past two weeks and "significant other" is what strikes me as Clooney

Violet said...

What about Colin Firth - the role being Mr Darcy. Just to throw another name into the mix.
It can't be Daniel - he is our local big name celeb, seen in an off licence just round the corner from my house just a few weeks back on a trip back 'home'. On that basis alone he is untouchable.

Lady Heisenberg said...

I think this is Johnny Depp or George Clooney

EvieShackles said...

I want to know who the A-list woman w/the kids is...

Tricia Shaw said...

Colonel totally off market this time( finally)
I still think it's a Bond guy
And the actress is gwyneth, I've decided
Making actor LA based where she now is again full time

Tricia Shaw said...

Clooney

Renoblondee said...

Keaton is forever my fave too.

Jennifer said...

I think "arguably" is the key word, right? Then Enty can later reveal it as pretty much anyone. :-)

a said...

I stopped watching the movies once Brosnan left. Craig is too prissy looking for the role, IMO.

Jenn said...

Aw, man, my first thought was a Hamlet, and that this another Kenneth Branagh/Helena Bonham Carter blind.

*slinks off*

ButterKwup said...

Please not Firth. If McHale is a dog, then at least let Colin be....not that way.

a said...

Bale. Nice guess on another franchise.

amanda_jf said...

Can't it even be a political figure like Abraham Lincoln, someone like Daniel Day Lewis would fit. Or someone who played Jesus? It surely doesn't have to be a comic book character.

ButterKwup said...

Aww. Jesus cheating? ;)

Sherry said...

Maybe Enty is saying the only good thing this actor did in his career was Bond and then they stank at everything else? Timothy Dalton came to mind but then he's not married even. Dang..Lost another one.

Sus said...

This is Christian Bale. Significant other also means wife. The actress... Kate Hudson.

Sus said...

Christian Bale and Kate Hudson share the same agent...

Mark said...

Keaton? Kilmer? Clooney? Bale? There is no argument - the best Batman was Adam West
Choosing Jokers between Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and Cesar Romero is worthy of a debate..

SkittleKitty said...

I wouldn't call Bale a "former" A+ mostly movie actor.

I would call Keaton one, though. But there'd have to be a somewhat significant age difference between Keaton and an A-list mostly movie actress with kids still in school...

ButterKwup said...

'Hand me down...the sharp repellant Bat-Spray!'

Count Jerkula said...

Ray Nicolet

amanda_jf said...

Probably with Judas lol.

nancer said...

it says 'former' A+.

that lets out some of the guesses. i liked the bale guess.

Carol said...

I agree Bale and Hudson - she fools around with anybody and everybody.

AndrewBW said...

Connery was the only Bond. Everyone else is, at best, a pale imitation.

Riven said...

TIMOTHY OLYPHANT

jeez I've been trying to post this comment for like an hour now and the mobile version of this site hates my phone. Well this was way more amusing an hour ago...

Snapdragon said...

@Violet, I am ashamed to admit that I thought Firth for Darcy, but would it say "significant other" when he's been married for nearly 20 years? Plus... who would it be? (Gags on thought of Nicole Kidman.)

Haha, I loved RDJ's Sherlock Holmes' movies, but they were like fun fanfic cousins of the actual canon. To say his was the best (even arguably) Sherlock is just plain silly. Jeremy Brett, for the best Victorian-era Holmes, IMHO.

msgirl said...

Andrew I agree, Connery IS Bond.

I also think Keaton was bet Batman. Whatever happened to him, tho, after Batman he kind of died. Hope it's not him. I don't think significant other is a wife.

"Many" actors doesn't signify only 3 or 4 to me. I was also thinking someone like Branaugh, but he's done a ton of theater. But many sounds like it could be something Shakespeare, or yeah Sherlock, altho Benedict doesn't have a SO at this time, and also this is someone older.

Sus said...

Agreed. Roger Moore second.

Count Jerkula said...

@Msgirl: Keaton/Nicholson got major points in Batman, then Keaton again in the subsequent films. He probably had enough $$ he was happy.

Riven said...

Kurt Russell
Character: Wyatt Earp

Actress: Jennifer Garner cause lord knows she needs some lovin...

Turkish Taffy said...

Keaton was definitely A+ in the 80's. Dream Team, Mr. Mom, Clean and Sober.

Froggy England said...

Hmm, it's a slightly older man, someone who played a famous role awhile ago,,,been others since,,,he is very famous for it though,,,, woman could be anyone with school age kids. Sounds like something julia roberts would do, but she likes em younger? ,,,Anyway,,can't be Connery or Moore,,,they are too old and very sadly seemingly Connery is suffering from dementia.

Fijigrrl said...

Agree. It says 'was' A+ list. Some of us are old enough to remember Keaton's run as beetlejuice, mr. Mom, night shift, etc. at one point he was in everything

Mark said...

Harrison Ford (Jack Ryan)? Alec Baldwin, Ben Affleck, Chris Pine were the other actors.

Virginia Squatch said...

Anthony Hopkins - Hannibal Lector

Topper Madison said...

The most exciting thing I've learned here is that Timothy Dalton isn't married?!

NaughtyNurse said...

Michael Keaton. Greatest Batman EVER.

Sillygurl said...

I thought Connery was almost incoherent these days. I'm no longer so angry he didn't have a cameo in Indiana Jones Crystal Skullfuckery. I was PISSED, no one in casting thought of my CHILDHOOD!!! But, I now CHOOSE (don't correct me if I'm wrong!) to believe he just wasn't capable of filming anymore by that point. Sads

Sillygurl said...

I think most people do. I hope they do a movie. But I still don't mind RDJ as Sherlock. I would've LOVED Cumsinbatches for Dr Who though. Le sigh

Sillygurl said...

It's on Netflix

it took forever said...

to each his own, i preferred val kilmer as batman

Scallywag said...

Great Esquire article on Micheal Keaton, my favorite Batman too:
http://www.esquire.com/features/michael-keaton-interview-0214

He lives up in Montana now. Does what he wants, when he wants. Is in the new Robocop.

Guessing this is Bale.

sugarbread maker said...

Bale and Amy Adams. Lots a chemistry from American hustle.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Silly, I never even thought of him for that role. Was he considered? I'm not sure how I feel about Peter, hopefully he's not too "dark" in the role.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Absolutely agree...I just don't get him as Bond, it reminds me of Christopher Eccelston (Sp) as Dr Who..bad choice.

Melissa of Grand Island said...

Oh I need to get Mr. Grand Island into this! I love that movie & I love Pierce!!

Erik said...

Connery --> Craig --> Dalton --> Brosnan --> Moore --> Lazenby

Jessi said...

I don't think so. Did you see how he shunned her at the Oscars? Though I agree onscreen they were Dynomite!! (Shout out to JJ)

sugarbread maker said...

Maybe that's why he shunned her. Humm.

sugarbread maker said...

His wife was newly preggers. Maybe wanted to avoid awkward run in same way macanahey avoids bullock when with wife. No drama with baby mama ya know

Aoife said...

Olyphant has been married for about 20 years I think. (Damn it). And he's not known for one role although he's made several roles his own.

I'm so sorry to hear about Connery having dementia. He's my favorite Bond. That said I like Craig's interpretation quite a bit. His Bond is a reboot, a Bond who fits more of today's views.

Whoever said Cumberbatch would make a great Dr. Who is on the money. I think his "Sherlock" made it impossible but that would've been great.

She was right about everything she said. Spent a bunch of time this wknd deleting....I. C. The blog. Missed it too. But, for chuckles, can we say whatever hall monitor/cafeteria woman screaming "you'll eat what i say"?! Damn you & your dweeby minions. Enough. All speak. No challenge. Stupid

Aoife said...

@Riven I wasn't sure. :)

Lula Surber said...

How about The Hulk? Actors who have played Bruce Banner (aka the Hulk):Bill Bixby, Lou Ferrigno, Eric Bana, Ed Norton and Mark Ruffalo. Lou Ferrigno: The body-builder and actor is best-known for “The Incredible Hulk” in the TV series that first aired in 1978 and ran until 1982, totaling 82 episodes.

Ray Nicolet said...

OMG How the hell did I miss this yesterday?

Oh yeah, I was taking the most difficult final I've ever encountered and then had to work.

Eh, Keaton can still get it. He is the greatest actor of all time.

Your Baby's Daddy said...

Harrison Ford, I'm going Jack Ryan.

MadLyb said...

Sean Connery was the best Bond, but this guy is younger, so I'm jumping on the Bale train.

di butler said...

Lazenby---> Dalton ---> Brosnan ---> Moore ---> Craig. I have NEVER liked woman beater/cheater Connery.

Kilmer ---> Bale ---> Keaton. Clooney was awful.

I hope this isn't Brosnan! After his 1st wife and stepdaughter's untimely deaths, he has been thru the ringer, and truly does seem devoted to Keely and their boys.

Keaton..

scarletscout said...

I think Val Kilmer was the best Doc Holliday in Tombstone... Isnt Harrison still stuck up in Toronto filming w/ Blake L ?
