Blind Item #1

This foreign born A- list mostly movie actor casts himself as a highly likable regular guy. Well, one of the few times he stepped out of movies to do television he was such a nightmare that he terrorized the studio and became so difficult that he refused to let anyone—director, showrunner, writers, costars—do any external press. Very abnormal. The studio kowtowed to his needs even though it totally hurt the production which no one ended up watching anyway.

Colin Farrell?

Tricia13 said...

True Detective was really good imo,he was excellent... but it didn’t make it past season2 because of low ratings I think

totaji said...

He’s been making some great movies lately. What’s so bad about him behind the scenes? How does he terrorize?

Tricia13 said...

I don’t know exactly(if him),but his sister is a nightmare and extremely protective/demanding etc

Emily said...

Tom Hiddleston?

Glue said...

Ewan McGregor? The only problem w/ me guessing Ewan for this is I don't want this to be him. I don't want to know if Ewan is an asshole. There's something so likable about Ewan.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Glue, there's been several blinds lately about his assholery.
But he does sell himself as a good guy so I think Ewan is a great guess.

@Tricia, I don't think Colin Farrell has ever been billed as a "likeable, normal guy."

Who else, ummmm
Geoffrey Rush? But that Peter Sellers thing probably isn't recent enough to be news worthy.

Tricia13 said...

Tom H is a good guess but I think “The Watchmam” was highly viewed? Colin portrays himself as a regular bloke-which I’ve heard he is so hoping not him...

Tricia13 said...

Maybe Jude Law and “The Pope”

Tricia13 said...

The Young Pope*-barely lasted 1 season

just sayin' said...

liking jude law, tricia. i found this quote from the hollywood reporter: "Law wouldn't reveal too many details on the production — under strict Sorrentino orders."

definitely not ewan - fargo was watched this season.

MollyGolly said...

I think Jude Law and The Young Pope is the most obvious.

Tricia13 said...

Yeah, I think so.... haven’t heard great things about him ,and I never bought that awww ,just a another bloke from (forget his UK hometown,think it was London and he geee up affluent). More like his Dicky Greenleaf character I reckon in The Talented Mr. Ripley(love that film)

just sayin' said...

+1 for the talented mr. ripley!!! jude law plays one heck of a "bad boy". i loved him in "the young pope" too, but the series petered out near the end.

Bitters said...

As usual, think you got this one Tricia. And to think I used to like him many moons ago..

Lurky McLurkster said...

@ Tricia - last I heard, True Detective is coming back for season 3 with Mahershala Ali in it

OB said...

+1 for the Ripley fans here. Also known as the one film where Goop is actually tolerable.

You'd be hard pressed to find a more beautiful man than Jude Law in that movie. And what a cast!!!

Bobby Digital said...

His season of true detective was so inferior to season 1. I quit watching 3 eps in

crackity-Mcgee said...

Could easily be billybob as it completely matches him tanking his amazon show or Jude law's young pope. Both of which are wonderful but

@tricia13 I can't see JL being able to boss around HBO or it matching up with the actual press for it. Young pope had amaZng ratings and plaudits . All my gay friends in London hate Jude Law though for unknown reasons.

Definitely billybob with amazon

Tricia13 said...

Me too Bitters... I was smitten with him when he first emerged -and think he’s highly talented.
Sucks that he-we’ll-sucks lol

Tricia13 said...

That is excellent news!!! Thank you for sharing🙏🏻

Tricia13 said...

BBT was born in Arkansas...

Tricia13 said...

Preach OB... so true. The scene in the Jazz Club (Italy) was spellbinding... as was,is the Kate great PSH of course-his shade was genius

Tricia13 said...

*the late great

Terry Teratoma said...

Gonna go with Ewan because of a) general assholery (Trainspotting is my all-time favourite movie so I hate that he's an asshole, but he is, & b) I love the Fargo TV series but I knew NOTHING about season 3, never saw ANY press for it, plus , apparently it won't be on Netflix, and there were some issues/questions re: where it WOULD air. Can't rememexact details...anyway, probably isn't him, but I'm going with him.

PookieTwo said...

Farrell had his substance abuse issues in the past but is well known as one of the easiest going people in the business. He's never 'terrorized' anyone and didn't have the clout on TD II to stop anyone doing press. This is probably Ewan or Jude Law.

probie said...

I was on set with Colin in Ireland and out and about with him pre and post party boy antics. It got him where it was by the looks of things. The man is a dreamer and wants to see great things for all(recalling meeting him in West Broadway Nyc) he has a solid good heart and will listen to your story. Look at his siblings and mam. Not
Him for this blind.

Elle said...

Anything I've heard on the Irish grapevine about Colin has been very positive. He became a huge support to a girl from my school who was diagnosed with a serious illness many moons ago. Strings were pulled to get him to send her good wishes, as she was an ardent fan. He ended up calling her directly and kept in touch regularly until her death. Of course, that doesn't mean he can't act the dick in other contexts but I highly doubt this is him. The idea of him forbidding the team behind True Detective from doing external press - and them obeying - and this causing the crappy ratings is ludicrous.

AIP said...

Nah, Farell’s a decent fella. A bit away with the fairies, and he puts on the down-to-earth-Dub thing a bit thick, but once he had the son and copped onto himself after all the partying, he improved immensely. Source; Dublin’s still a small town.

AIP said...

But then again, he hadn’t acted ln a tv programme here since Ballykissangel, so who knows.

probie said...

I agree he turned up in my bar after a photo shoot for a front cover of an Irish magazine with his brother.

What about vince vaughan? Same show but he may have had been the star /more pulling power?

probie said...

Don’t knock ballykissangel!

Elle said...

@Probie, nice! Was his brother hot? :D

VV - not foreign born so he's out.

Elle said...

Actually, never mind, Eamonn Farrell is as gay as Christmas.

Poola said...

@probie and @AIP Agree about Colin. Nice chap by all accounts. Worked briefly with his other sister based in Ireland and she was lovely.

LizzieDJ said...

Tom Hardy, show is Taboo.
