Four For Friday - Kindness

#1 - This just about permanent B+ list mostly television actress has a hit network hit in her past. A middling almost network run and the last gasp of a cable show that didn't start there. A lot of people talk a good game or will go volunteer somewhere once a year on a holiday. Our actress is always volunteering. She doesn't stick to just one place, but can be found at homeless missions or domestic violence shelters. I have heard of her helping out at schools and Boys & Girls clubs. When she has free time, she volunteers.

#2 - This permanent A list mostly movie actor can be an a-hole. He has a very limited acting range but has made some very successful movies and of course has that long running huge franchise they keep trying to churn out new installments to. He used to be married to an A lister. I don't think this actor has ever for one second talked about any charities. Maybe in a red carpet comment of which I am not aware, but I can't think of any. Each year though, our actor writes several million dollars a year in checks and the vast majority go to funds helping first responders and their families when they have gone through a tragedy.

#3 - This A- list mostly television actress had some really good luck with that long running network ensemble show. It has been kind of rocky since then, and the A- list thing is just because so many people know who she is rather than where she is. Anyway, perhaps fitting with her nature, if you are a school with a music program, she is your champion. I have seen her raise six figures in a night for programs involving singing and music. She doesn't do galas really, but she will make phone calls and send texts and e-mails and basically tell people she knows to Venmo her some money or write a check. She has probably raised $1M in the past two years and a lot of that was in small donations.

#4 - This foreign born permanent A list mostly movie actor also has a love of singing and dancing. With no franchise any longer due to his no longer wanting to play the character, our actor has even more time to devote to his fundraising. Our actor loves to help small theatres with their annual budgets. He generally writes $50,000 checks which is often enough to sustain a theatre for a year or two just on its own. He tries to write 20 of these checks a year and also contributes to a find he set up which he hopes by the time he dies many many years from now will fund hundreds of theatres a year without drawing down on the prinicipal.

4-I also think it's Hugh Jackman, since he don't want to be Wolverine any longer and he's always so kind.

Appalachian Mothersauce said...

I was talking to a friend about the "monster icon" posts, and she said "what did Tricia guess? She's usually right." You Are officially a CDAN icon.

DonnaMarie said...

Definitely Connie Britton for number 1

Tricia13 said...

No way! That’s insane...(kind though)! Thank you....Appalachian Mother sauce🙏🏻
I think I was way off with the guess though- Jonny Rotten maybe😰👀

Melissa said...

#1 Mindy Kaling?

Tea said...

2) Tom Cruise

Lurky McLurkster said...

I heard Derek is coming back to the boards

skywalkerOG said...

1. Bruce Willis

Can be an asshole
He has limited acting range
Die Hard is the series they keep churning out sequels for
Used to be married to Demi Moore
Known conservative donating to Fox News type charities (nothing wrong with that)
Came up in a blind recently so makes sense his people would slip this kind of PR to enty

4. Hugh Jackman

Foreign born, loves to sing and dance his ass off
He wants Logan to be his last Wolverine movie



skywalkerOG said...

* I meant 2 for Bruce Willis

Doh

OKC Teacher said...

I can’t imagine Lea Michelle doing anything without it being on multiple sites, she loves publicity

bibliophile927 said...

1. Connie Britton
2. Bruce Willis
3. Courtney Cox/Lisa Kudrow?
4. Hugh Jackman

Don Kieballs said...

1) Connie Britton (she supports so many charities)
2) Bruce Willis (although he isn't completely unknown for supporting charities, including donating his earnings for his Friend's guest appearances to charities.
3) I'll go with Leah Michelle because she fits and does charity work
4) Hugh Jackman, and I like hearing about him being so generous with his time and money, despite the fact I'll never accept another Wolverine if it isn't him

Tricia13 said...

“Coming Back”?
You do mean “Donna Marie”, n’est pas😏?

Don Kieballs said...

Maybe not Leah Michele. I think enty finds her annoying and B list at most

AndrewBW said...

Props to all of these folks. If only the rest of Hollywood were as decent as you.

Ivy said...

1. Connie Britton
2. Bruce Willis
3. Lisa Kudrow
4. Hugh Jackman

Unknown said...

With "long-running network ensemble show" and "rocky since then," I'm guessing Tina Fey for #3.

But, kudos to everyone in this blind, especially if they're so quiet about what they're doing that we don't know about it!

AlexKeats said...

3. Zooey Deschanel?

Thia said...

Derek? As in Derek Harvey? I took a few month break from the internet and when I came back, he was gone from here.

Auntie Em said...

Just to be different: Daniel Radcliffe for #4?

Jimbonius said...

Wildcard for #4, Pierce Brosnan

Bebidoo said...

#2 Mark Walhberg

Glitter said...

Does anyone know what happened to Derek? Is he CNN's CANDY CROWLEY?

Sekrit said...

I feel like 4 is Hugh. If it isn't for some reason, I have heard heaps of stories like this over the years about him. He's very much into giving back to the acting/performing industry and is incredibly kind.

#2 Liam neeson. Was married to Natasha Richardson who died after falling skiing. Would make sense on the first responder part.

trixie comments said...

#4 Canadian Martin Short - always available for benefits and fundraisers. Has raised tons for various arts orgs, so this would not be a stretch.

Chenin Blanc said...

#1 Patricia Heaton, network hit, Everyone Loves Raymond, and "middling" = The Middle
#2, Bruce Willis

katsm0711 said...

Lol that would be awesome!

bibliophile927 said...

No way it's Tina Fey, she has a show coming out on Broadway,executive producer of two current shows, and a badass bitch. I love that woman.

lucy said...

I just remember him being a dick just for the sake of being a dick. total lack of intrigue /wit

Karen Smith said...

3) Lisa Kudrow
