Blind Item #9

This former A+ list mostly television actor from a very very hit network show rarely acts any longer and prefers to be behind the camera. He has a big temper as this foreign born B list mostly movie actress, who is an Academy Award winner/nominee found out. He beat her to the point where she needed surgery to repair her hearing. The incident happened in her home country and she was responsible for hushing it up.

Jason Priestly

David Schwimmer? Although I could never believe it.

sandybrook said...

Hopefully Alan Alda or Rob Reiner are too old to do this. Reined could be though....

Why should SHE hush it up? She should have had him arrested.

Whoa.
Not cool.
Hopefully not Ron Howard.

sandybrook said...

Doesn't say they were married @S

sugarbread maker said...

Too many to choose from

Tricia Shaw said...

This is Peter Berg

wahoowifey said...

Thumbs up guys :) very high and very happy!

sandybrook said...

Yay wahoo!

Unknown said...

What "very very hit network show" was he on?

Sherry said...

Are you out of surgery already? Hope your recovery is fast sweetie! I'll bet also, it's not just the pain meds making you feel lighter.

Lady Heisenberg said...

ED FUCKING HARRIS

Tina Mallette said...

Eric LaSalle
ER

Froggy England said...

Whomever he is, he's a total low life, scum bag and I hope someone beats the crap out of him so bad he needs surgery.

Kno Won Uno said...

I'd believe practically anything about Ed Harris. I'd cross the street to avoid him. He scares me.

Riven said...

Friggin autocorrect

Eriq La Salle
ER

Ari said...

i like the david schwimmer guess

EvieShackles said...

Fred Savage "the wonder years". Don't know the actress

WritergirlinLa said...

I'm going with Berg on this one. This is definitely not Ronny Howard.

Seachica said...

Oh Wil Wheaton!

texas rose said...

No way Peter Berg was ever A+ or Chicago Hope was very very hit network show. Fred savage is interesting guess.

Tricia Shaw said...

He absolutely was..and Chicago hope was Huygens,ER huge
And savage directs episodic schlock tv..not likely to find him beating down a woman in her foreign country
He was also re revealed as the former actor who never leaves his house and has assistants do errands

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Wow. How exciting!!! So glad u posted ur out and happily high.

Tricia Shaw said...

Also based in character assessments / testimonials of both berg and savage..ones, um an asshole(widely known as berg)
Ones a sweetheart...ask Winnie cooper

NATHANIEL MANELLA said...

I'm not sure Wheaton could kick a woman's ass. I thought of schwimmer too but he's had a few movies recently. Peter Berg is a dick but not sure I'd classify him A for a 2nd banana to ER.

EvieShackles said...

Never heard of Berg. Maybe he's an A overseas.....

Frufra said...

Haven't seen Savages, but looking at IMDB, I don't see Berg listed there on the acting or producting/directing side. Obviously, I could have missed something.

Zach said...

Peter Berg is most definitely not A+ just for Chicago Hope. It was an ensemble series and not huge like ER. If Sofia Vergara, the highest paid woman on TV, is a current B / A because of her show only, then nobody mentioned above except for Fred Savage is or ever has been more than a solid A at best.

Tricia Shaw said...

@frufru thought he had producing credit, which is sometimes uncredited..know he's friends with Oliver stone

@evie...no. Here. American actor started in TV..his former show was nominated almost every year in mid to late 90s
For best drama, best ensemble, best actor/tress etc..transitioned to film then directing.
Famously dated Madonna at one point

sugarbread maker said...

Oliver Stone directed Savages.
Peter Berg directed Battleship

Tricia Shaw said...

I'm aware.....just said they Re friends, think he had a prod. Cred

Zach said...

Frankly it could be Alec Baldwin.

Tricia Shaw said...

Except fir which projects is known for behind a camera...he's Never, behind a camera

Tricia Shaw said...

If going Fred savage route which I posted as a joke when this blind first posted..why not Kirk Cameron then? He directs inspirational, religious programs..

Tricia Shaw said...

? Fred savage is married for years with kids, my eye dr was at his and his bro bens wedding because they are lifelong family friends..he is probably, one of the nicest, most normal people in that insane circus called show biz.

EvieShackles said...

@Tricia, why does it bother you if people have guesses contrary to your own?

Tricia Shaw said...

It doesn't..but there is no substantive nature to tome, so I just share what I know,often on a personal level,as I appreciate when others do

Tricia Shaw said...

I'll digress to,no worries....just illuminates possibilities and helps discount non possibilities, which in turn, helps sort, solve the blinds...which I thought was the point

Tricia Shaw said...

oT
Great news@ wahoo.....Godspeed recovery

EvieShackles said...

um.... ok. Thanks for clarification. :-)

Tricia Shaw said...

No worries, sorry if it seemed offputting:(

Stu Rat said...

Timothy Busfield?

A for thirty something?

He's had issues with women go public in the past.

Tricia Shaw said...

Apologies to all for that actually:)

EvieShackles said...

No worries. Lots can get lost in the translation of typing.

Renoblondee said...

Y'all are hurting my heart with some of these guesses. LOL

So happy for you @wahoowifey! Keep us updated.

crila16 said...

Yikes...I'm going to have to go with Peter Burg. I refuse to believe little Opie Cunningham is a violent man.

Topper Madison said...

I read this as Mickey Dolenz because was there ever really any teevee hit as big as The Monkees?

Unknown said...

Nope. Not "very very big."

just_another_blogger said...

David Schwimmer dated academy award winning Israeli actress Mili Avital in the early 2000s.

NaughtyNurse said...

Wait. What? Why all the hate for Ed Harris?? What's the story that I've never heard? I don't believe this is him. He is former A movies, not A+ television.

Cecily said...

I agree, the Monkees was the biggest U.S. t.v. show ever. But, no way this is my boo Micky Dolenz.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Peter Horton, he played Gary on Thirty Something.
After he did some acting but mostly went in Directing. There were some unsavory rumors about his abusive nature...

Lady Heisenberg said...

Naw, it's Peter Berg. I could see this as Harris though. His wifey had at least one oscar nomination. Harris has been supporting some real assholes lately

Lady Heisenberg said...

Plus Harris is a mostly movie actor

Riven said...

@LadyH I'm sorry my mind was temporarily overwhelmed with find memories of The Rock. Harris was so good, oh and Cage and Connery? That was such an entertaining movie. And mmmmmmm Michael Behn. "Like you, I swore a vow to defend our country from terrorists. Foreign. And domestic."

So basically I'd forgotten how much I loved The Rock until today, thanks Lady H!

Malibu Borebee said...

Ed Harris isn't a tv actor. He doesn't beat women. He's the kindest man you'd ever want to meet.

Busfield molests underage actresses on the shows he directs. I don't know if he beats women, wouldn't put it past that scumbag.

Dena said...

Michael Steadman would never!

WUWT? said...

I don't usually guess on these kind of things, seems to malign innocent people if I'm wrong, but the name that came to my mind reading the description was Zach Braff. A+ TV actor now behind the scenes. Didn't handle his "Punk'd" episode well so who knows about anger issues? (Disclaimer: SO not a fan of Punk'd, just saying....)

Bitca said...

It's not just that Ed Harris is more films than TV. My late mom worked w/him in the early 80s when he was the lead in a super-obscure indie film--she found he was not just a terrific actor--it was a pleasure to act with him, & he was a truly stand-up, all-round decent guy.

Super-Obscure indie was shot a couple of years before Harris got natl raves for Fool for Love (S Shepard play) & The Right Stuff. I'd hate to think he went to the Dark Side afterwards.

Angela said...

Jonathan Frakes — Ryker in Star Trek, now mostly a director.
Na, kidding. He's been married for thirty years, and he seems a cook guy.

Eriq La Salle, David Schwimmer and Peter Berg are good choices, but Berg would be mostly known today as being the A list director of various films.

Alita said...

Seachica

TNG taught me that sort of stuff doesn't happen in the Federation.

Except for maybe in DS9. But probably not.

Alita said...

*except for if it were Jadzia and Worf, but that's consensual.

Alita said...

Tricia, I post in mobile order, not chronological,so God knows what happens down thread.

I think we need an icon for people that actually know some of the people referenced in these blinds. I'm a complete non Hollywood-ite, but I know some of you traverse those gold plated streets (that was irony, the gold bit - it would likely be brass ;).

I think we probably bug you Hollywood-ins with our guesses, and I guess some of my non-HW types get finicky.

Personally I like it when people with a personal celeb story talk.

In conclusion: if you know any of these people, even tangentially, please go with it XD

bellaluna said...

Good to hear you're doing so well & feeling no pain!

bellaluna said...

Since we're on the ER train, what about Noah Wylie? He was big on ER, has been in (TV) films, and currently stars and produces Falling Skies.
