Blind Items Almost Revealed

July 8, 2013

You don't really hear much about this B- list actor who evenly divides his time between movies and television. Foreign born and never in the tabloids. Not really a family man, but a long relationship kind of guy.  He is in one right now, but that does not mean he did not want to have some fun on his hit network show and he selected one of his co-stars as someone he would like to get to know better. She agreed, but started feeling guilty about cheating on her husband so wanted to break it off. Our actor didn't want to break it off and said to the actress he would have her fired if she broke things off with him. She broke things off with him and the actor did have her fired. He knew the show needed him and could easily replace her. She has not found work since and he has been sure to bad mouth her whenever he gets the chance.

The show is filmed outside the continental US

I immediately thought Cumberbatch but I don't think any of it fits at all except foreign born.

I did wait, though...doo doo dooo

sandybrook said...

I cant even think of a hit network show that is not filmed in the cointinetal US.

sandybrook said...

or even continental US

Solitary Angel said...

I was thinking H50 too...but I didn't want to believe it of Alex because he IS a family man! He has an older son and a new baby.

0-0

Alabama said...

Downtown Abby? Dr Who?

Sherry said...

I don't know but for some reason these getting people fired for not putting out blinds are grating on me today. Even nice family men are assholes now. I need a kindness blind to wash away the bitter disappointment.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Freddie Highmore, Bates Morel. Split between Tv & movies, show filmed in BC. Has gf.

Tongue N. Cheek said...

Hmmm... I always thought Lord Grantham looked a bit shady...

FS said...

If its H5O who is the actress?

Lady Heisenberg said...

Freddie allegedly ring shopping this week too

Seven of Eleven said...

Stop picking on Cumby! He's an angel sent from above and would NEVER!

Hawaii Five-O sounds interesting. Never watched it but the "outside of the continental US" would definitely fit.

Froggy England said...

That's really nasty, seriously, getting someone fired because they don't want to sleep with you anymore and then bad mouthing them as well. That was someone you were intimate with. What a total douchebag. They should have fired him.

TalksTooMuch said...

No, no, I get the Cumby now! I just saw foreign-born and got a little squirrely

Candyland said...

Hit Network show is throwing me off on this one. I keep thinking of people on hit cable shows. I got nothin'.

Candyland said...

I like where Seven is going with Hawaii Five-O.

Violet said...

Err Candy. Please don't make me sad - but check out comment number one and rethink your fawning over 7.

Nancy said...

Cumberbatch is not in a relationship (I am ashamed of myself that I know that...) and network to me would imply NBC,CBS, ABC, and Fox. Adding the outside of the 48 states makes me think of H50. Alex O'Loughlin just got married not that long ago and was with his current wife for a long time. I have a hard time seeing this as him but the only other options outside of him are Scott Caan and Daniel Dae Kim. Autumn Reeser played a love interest of Scott Caan's character and was gone and never to be heard from again, you also do not see the actress who plays his ex-wife on the show anymore either.

House said...

I was trying to make "Hannibal" work for this, if Entward decided Canada qualified by virtue of being continental non-US. But H50 does sound likely,

WritergirlinLa said...

I like the H5-0 guess and I'm going with Autumn Reeser as the actress. Her career is stalled. 6 episodes of H5-0.

Tina Mallette said...

But Scott Caan is clearly American born unless he was born outside of the US. No he was born in LA as one would expect. Daniel Dae Kim is South Korean but can't imagine him being like that either.

Erinne said...

Hugh Dancy, Hannibal...filmed in Toronto

Candyland said...

Violet! My apologies! I didn't even know who that dude was...now I feel like an ass. I'm supporting you on the Alex train!

Seven of Eleven said...

@Candyland, don't feel like that! I didn't know who the dude was either and was riding on FS's train! Kudos, @Violet!

Violet said...

Candy don't apologise. My guesses usually stink and I was quite proud of this one!

Tina Mallette said...

Here is another thing though about Alex not being in the tabloids I remember him being in the tabloids because of suspected drug issues - didn't he admit having to go to rehab a few years ago? But yes we are talking Enty. Enty probably even had a blind at the time.

Unknown said...

Yup, Alex O'Loughlin and Autumn Reeser.

Candyland said...

Enty should have described said blind item person as "B- list actor who is unknown to Seven and Candyland." Now that would have helped us! ;)

Tina Mallette said...

Erinne I like your guess lots of possibilities here

Hannibal Wiki

even more interesting considering who his wife is

I see Gillian Anderson has or had a recurring role?

Gypsytrill said...

Scott Caan bats for the other team. This is Alex. "Outside the continental US" is the obvious clue.
Although lots of shows are filmed in Vancouver and Toronto. Hmmm.

Krista Honchar said...

Didn't Michelle Borth (sp?) leave the show after this season? She played Alex's love interest.

Danica said...

She did leave he show but Borth isn't married I don't think

Danica said...

The not he

Katie Telling said...

Charles Dance GoT???

LowKey said...

GoT is cable.
So is every other show I can think of.
I'll cosign the H5O guesses above, I got nothing better.

bellaluna said...

I'd say network also includes PBS.

Sandy said...

It's O'Loughlin. That guy is no angel - has repeatedly gotten leads in series despite repeated failures because a female CBS exec has a, er, thing for him, which he obviously has exploited.

texas rose said...

Definitely O'Loughlin and Hawaii Five-0. Reeser sounds right also. He was in the tabloids though a year or so ago when he went to rehab.

clearly4you said...

I hope it's not him/Bates Motel...I lurvvvve that show and cast. OT, have major crushes on Dylan & Romero....

I think WritergirlinLa got it. Reeser hasn't worked since 2013 when she was last on 5-0.

Alita said...

Getting someone fired for not sleeping with you appears to be the Hollywood version of "she's a lesbian" (because she didn't put out).

Interesting - my puritanical spelczech changes 'lesbian' to 'Llangian.'

Llangian, I discover, is a small village on the Llŷn Peninsula, in the Welsh county of Gwynedd.

It has literally *hundreds* of people living there, and is thus obviously a more commonly used word than 'lesbian.'

Who owns spellcheck software - the freaking Taliban????

Henriette said...

Alex O from Hawaii Five-O has drug issues and from Australia. This certainly fits him.

evie2345 said...

Alex O'Loughlin doesn't really split time between TV and movies though. And I'm pretty sure autumn Reeser left the show when she got a bigger role on something else but I may be wrong. Plus I would call a guy with two kids who just got married a family man.
There are a lot of shows that film in Vancouver- maybe something there?

hippy chk said...

O'Brien stopped giving it up to Lord Grantham.

Michelle said...

5-0 is something I follow far too closely. :)

I don't believe it's Alex and many comments aren't quite right. He went to rehab for pain meds 2 years ago, after being injured on set. No rumors since. He just got married and seems very family-man, since he lives with 3 kids and his wife.

Autumn Reeser was never a co-star, just a recurring part. And she did get a better job. She came back to film her last episode while very pregnant, or having just given birth or something.

Lauren German co-starred for a year and sucked at it. But she's on Chicago Fire and doing fine.

Scott doesn't bat for the other team; his girlfriend is pregnant and Grandpa Caan is thrilled.IMO the old story about Scott was him out looking to fight some gays, not join them. On the plus side, he just did a bunch of charity work over the weekend.

Plus I don't think 5-0 is a hit show -- it's a solid performer, but not a huge hit.

Not continental US leaves most of the world, ya know!
