Blind Item #2

This former A list mostly movie actor has spent the past decade sliding to a B- list trying to get television work actor. His attempts at successful series have not gone well. Now he is facing the dilemma of his wife's past as an escort come out because she also made private videos with some of her clients.

Like the Robin guess

Frufra said...

Maybe Christian Slater? Doesn't he have a fairly recent marriage/young wife?

snookiemonster said...

Hilaria!

derek harvey said...

That was my guess Frufa

TalksTooMuch said...

Tracy Pollan was an actress, I can't even IMAGINE her on the ho stroll

FSP said...

I like Frufra's guess.

Frufra said...

@derek - looking at his imdb, he's got a shit-ton of failed network shows. Paired with a 2013 marriage to some civilian, and it's Slater FTW!!

Hilarious is irony indeed

Immediately thought of Christian Slater. I used to scour the TV guide every week and highlight his movies so I could make sure I wouldn't miss a single one. Ah, remember the old school TV guide that came in the newspaper? Also, Young Guns II. My God I loved that movie.

Slater is a great guess!

Slater is a good guess.

@ snookimonster -- Baldwin was never an A list mostly movie actor and his most recent TV show was obviously an enormous hit by any standard. Also, Hilaria pre-Baldwin was a yoga instructor... She's a fame whore, but not an actual whore.

@ Kristen -- Given MJF's start, I don't think you could call him a "mostly movie actor." Also, he's obviously had succesful TV series since his movie days (Spin City & The Good Wife right now). Only his most recent sitcom failed.

Another actor who married an escort.

Great guess with Slater. I used to adore him too.

i only thought of Slater when I read this blind. Btw I've enjoyed most of his recent TV series.

Frufra said...

Feeling pretty good about myself here - pop back in to CDaN on summer break, and, whatta know; I still got it, baby! :-)

Fru!!! <3

@Kristen you made me choke on my diet pepsi with the mouthguard comment. Maybe I should have become and escort. When I think of all the guys I got nothing from.....they seem to end up with good severance packages at least.

teresa crane said...

I had a Christian Slater poster on my wall! Got it out of one of those magazines - BOP I think? LOL

Zach said...

Cosign! Needs to be someone with a spotty TV track record and a wife young enough to escort with a videocamera!

Sprink said...

@beth, whoa! "Baldwin was never an A list mostly movie actor?"

Beth, Beth...can we talk? Where were you between 1988 and 1995? Not only was Alec white hot, he was also garnering a fair bit of critical acclaim.

I'm convinced the two reasons he didn't skyrocket to A+ and stay for awhile were his refusal to do the sequel to Hunt for Red October and and his whack-a-mole private life.

Sprink said...

Hmmm...I meant "whack-a-doo", but "whack-a-mole" will suffice. Carry on.

He's divorced and I don't recall hearing he remarried.

Even though Hilary (aka Hilaria) doesn't fit the entire bl...
I don't doubt she was a whore after her whore-able yoga classes let out.
She def a Ho now!

Meg said...

Totally fits Slater. He's had a pile of TV series attempts which flopped. Pity, some of them were pretty good, and he's a good actor. Married Brittany Lopez last December according to IMDB.

LOL HORZ

Henriette said...

Remember when Christian Slater was supposed to be the next big thing?

Diane said...

I liked his show about the missing people & the ordinary guy/spy one, too.

jo davies said...

Yeah whatever happened to him....his career seemed like such a sure thing but then it just wasnt
