Blind Items Revealed #3

April 21, 2017

This old B+ list mostly movie actor is 3/4 of the way to an EGOT if you count nominations and halfway if you count wins. He has had some memorable roles in tv and movies, but back in the day he was in this movie based on a book. Anyway, he was 70 or close to it and married. It didn’t stop him from having a different female extra in his trailer every day. He was even there the days he was not scheduled to film.

Hal Holbrook/The Firm

Whoa. Well that's a surprise. Guess Dixie Carter put up with a lot.

Well, I Never said...

OMGEEEEEE.

Dixie probably considers it a break. Wouldn't be surprising if she just doesn't care anymore and looks the other way.

Salaam said...

So Julia Sugarbaker tolerates that level of cheating? Honestly, I'm a little stunned.

um - Dixie Carter died in 2010, Hal is not married

Simon said...

The firm was from 1993 so he was def cheating on Dixie

Hal is a legend, just for playing deep throat so he gets to do anything in my book. BTW i thought he was dead?

sandybrook said...

Dixie cut him loose when he was 86, he's 92 now so I doubt he's doing much of anything these days

Guesser said...

Surprised so many don't know Dixie Passed,Hal is A list, and the blind makes it sound like the person is still married.

Dog! said...

She's a little dead.

Dog! said...

I'm a little stunned she's been dead for several years.

SarahS said...

I mean, no where does it say his wife is still alive? Why all the comments about her being dead???

david said...

Back in the 1980's, while I was working at Big 5, I sold Hal a shot gun!

meagain said...

She was definitely alive and married to him when this happened. Still, just no. Hate that he is nothing but a cliche.

I saw him in something quite recently. I think it was Grey's Anatomy

Junes Better Looking Younger Sister said...

The blind doesn't say she is still alive but the commenters are talking about her in the present tense, as if she were.

texasrose said...

Nobody was even close to getting this in original blind

Jessica said...

Not during the filming of the Firm, which is when this blind takes place.

Google is your friend. Idiot.

Dixie didn't cut him loose. They were very much a couple at that church in Beverly Hills that Reese Witherspoon attends. I'm sorry to hear about the cheating, as they were extremely sweet together. She was there regularly until she got too sick and he has gone to church alone since she passed.
