Blind Item #8

This permanent A+ list mostly movie actor is being honored with a big award this fall, but wants to make sure that it does not turn into a roast. Just a tribute. The guy hates when people make fun of him and he has threatened to not show up if he hears it will be a roast.

I think I discovered OG Entys favorite summer cocktail ---they are now making bacon flavored Cesars! pre-mixed in cans---gross...(Bloody Marys for those Mericans)

Tongue N. Cheek said...

I go with Hanks. He's pretty full of himself.

Candyland said...

I'm thinking Jack Nicholson...

Christopher Cruz said...

That's not how you spell Tammy...

SecretTorture said...

If Tommyboy is being referred to as permanent A+ list I'm gonna be mad. Every single movie he has been in for the last 5 years has completely bombed at the box office. He's a terrible actor and he has crazy eyes.

LTG said...

Wow, I really hate to hear Hanks is full of himself. He seems like such a nice guy :-/

sugarbread maker said...

Jack don't give zero pfucks.

But they're huge overseas

Joe Pesci

Hahahahaha hahahahaha hahahahaha hahahahaha hahahahaha hahahahaha

Walburg?

I don't think you have to worry. Cruise is terribly out of fashion at the moment. Give him 5-10 years, some grey hair and some decent Magnolia-type roles and it will be time for the Cruise revival, Michael Caine style. At some point, he WILL get an Oscar. But not anytime soon.

Unknown said...

I thought Nicholson, but he seems to have a pretty good sense of humor, as do Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino.


I think this is meant about someone older than Tom Cruise.

Alice Tate said...

Harrison Ford seems very humorless to me.

Shark Week said...

Where?

Unknown said...

Richard Dreyfuss? But he hasn't really done anything in a while.

ItsCourtneyD said...

You don't like Christian do you? Lmao

ItsCourtneyD said...

Methinks perhaps they should just grow a set and learn to take a little teasing. FFS I've been made fun of for years. I've lived.

Sherry said...

Now I see Hanks as a jovial go ahead and laugh at me guy.

Sugar said...

I agree with the Tom Cruise guess. Dude has no sense of humor about himself whatsoever.

Sherry said...

I was thinking Tammy as well and then Alice pops up with Harry. He was funny on Kimmel (was that the one where he had Star Wars characters asking questions?) . But yeah I can see him being a cranky old bastard.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Sugar, I've got to disagree with you about Cruise having no sense of humor about himself. The whole first 20 minutes of Edge of Tomorrow is a piss-take of the Tom Cruise flawless-man-of-action persona. The character is a lazy creep.

Not to mention the Tropic Thunder character - Lev Grossman? - and Stacie Jaxx, the Axl Rose-inspired heavy metal singer in Rock of Ages.

I still maintain that in 2014, nobody wants to give Tom Cruise an award for anything.

Kopa Katz said...

Clooney? He IS going to run for office and maybe doesn't want anyone tarnishing his post wedding image?

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Shark Week, Cruise is very big in China, Japan, Korea and Russia. Not so much in Europe any more. His latest flick, which got fantastic reviews but completely flopped in the U.S., set box-office records in Russia.

Princess Nobody said...

Richard Gere

Sugar said...

Lev Grossman was divine, you are correct about that! I think he does have a sense of humor sometimes with his movie characters yet still takes himself way to seriously as a person.

Sunny said...

@sugarbread
I'm feelin Travolta too (there's so much roasting material there, for heaven's Sake). Any idea of the award? I'm blanking on Fall awards shows

Unknown said...

Les Grossman, not Lev, lol. And yes, that fat asshole sure could bust a move! Great character.

I keep thinking this is someone in Pacino/DeNiro's age range and class, or older.

Sugar said...

Oops!

sugarbread maker said...

Any lifetime achievement thing I'm sure. Those all role out in fall during awards season. No scio jokes. No massage jokes. No wigs jokes. No gay nanny jokes...no who's your wife screwing this week jokes..I can see his anxiety

Sugar said...

Now I'm wondering what type of award show would roast someone they are honoring. I know hosts sometimes make jokes about actors and actresses during the show but when they are 'honoring' someone don't they usually take it pretty seriously?

audrey said...

Tommy Lee Jones? He's had a long career, may not have won any Oscars but can definitely open a film and is easily recognizable and well known...and face it, chewing gum has more of a sense of humor than this man.

NATHANIEL MANELLA said...

I've seen Hanks get teased at awards and he takes it OK. Tom Cruise knows enough about human emotions to appear to take it well. I say Bruce Willis

Sadie said...

Matthew McConaughey is receiving the American Cinematheque Award in October. It's him. He's probably fed up with Matt Damon impressions and naked bongo player jokes.

bellaluna said...

I'm on the TLJ or Ford train.

Sean said...

I think Sadie has it. MMc

Steph.livelaughlove said...

OT. But is VIP blonde still around?? :/

Fred66 said...

George Clooney, seems to be very thin-skinned.

teresa crane said...

Yeah MM seems easygoing but I could see this as him

He's sensitive :)

meme deemed said...

Harrison Ford.

Nicholson's already been roasted, toasted and skewered.

Clooney/Bale - too early yet for them. They still have their teeth.

FrenchGirl said...

Matthew McConaughey and his no shirtless jokes? Because he will receive an award for his whole career in autumn
Bale refused a star in the spanish wall of fame last year ( it did a mini-scandal in Spain)

FrenchGirl said...

@meme deemed
Matt damon yet had the award of Cinematheque 2 years ago

Nongraceful Blonde said...

George Clooney's face just popped into my head, but I'm sure I'm wrong...

Matthew McC in October

nancer said...

Can totally see it being Ford.

RowdyRodimus said...

What about DeNiro? he seems like the kind of guy who would get pissed over a joke about his lazy acting over the last decade or so.

Marybel said...

Jerry Lewis?

Sadie said...

Yeah, it's definitely McConaughey. Before the Oscars, he was interviewed by Piers Morgan who started off by asking him about the naked bongo incident. I think they edited the interview, cause it was pretty obvious McC stopped the interview and walked away. How many shirtless jokes can one man take?

astrogirl said...

Especially now he has a broken leg.

Shark Week said...

Nutty, I was wondering because all I can see is crazy eyessssss!!

The Enquirer said...

Al Pacino

StuffandNonsense said...

Richard Gere or Tommy C for the win. Precious little boys. Oy.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

I don't think Pacino minds the ribbing.

And Tom Hanks is nice as far as I know.

is it sad that I automatically rated Jonah Hill as A list? Cause I can see him for this one…comedy central had a roast for James Franco and all the guys who spoke did was to make fun of Jonah and his ego.
I used to love him (he's still my favorite part in 40 year Old Virgin)

but he takes him self waaaaay to seriously and desperate to be in the cool crowd.
