Blind Item #13

This A- list dual threat actor still has a franchise I guess. You mostly see him on television these days on a hit network show. Back when he had his first chance headlining a movie, he sexually assaulted an actress who had a nude scene. It was her first movie and her last. She blames him for that.

Terrence Howard does not have a franchise and probably won't be handed another anytime soon.

Alec Baldwin's (actor/game show host) first big movie was Working Girl, which had a naked Elizabeth Whitcraft sitting atop him. She also had a small role in Goodfellas which came out later, so that wasn't her only film.

James Spader?

Baldwin - Beetlejuice.

Rachael Mittleman for the actress? She played "Little Jane" and there is no further work in her listing.

@NE peanut: good detective work!
While I'm on that topic, Tricia would you consider teaching us n00bs your techniques? :)

Sansa said...

Little Jane in Beetlejuice was a little girl. Definitely didn't have a nude scene!

I believe it's James Marsden. The first film in which he headlined was Disturbing Behavior (1998). Crystal Cass had a nude (well, topless) scene in the film. It was essentially the only movie she ever filmed. She had an extremely small role, basically as an extra, in another film also released in 1998, but... Regardless, she never has never been in another movie since Disturbing Behavior.

She works in the business.

Sansa said...

For James Marsden, wouldn't it have said pay cable hit? Or is he in something else on a network..

SkittleKitty said...

Another possibility: Donnie Wahlberg? (Saw - franchise, currently on Blue Bloods).

Technically in Enty-Speak, though, he should be a triple threat for NKOTB.

Teach us your dark arts of CDAN MAGIC LOL

Sara, Making It Work said...

There were no nude scenes in Beetlejuice....

Don Kieballs said...

Terrence Howard does fit, except didn't find nude scene actress
Franchise - The Best Man, The Best Man Holiday, and The Best Man Wedding (TBA)
Network Hit - Empire
First headline movie - I assumed was Love Beat the Hell Outta Me, but the only actress with just that one credit is Shay Best and, again, can't find nude scenes from that movie, but didn't look too much for one. could be a different first movie/actress. Or not TH

ThisIsTrivial said...

Baldwin was in the last Mission Impossible, and will be in the next. I really like him for this even though it doesn't fit perfectly.

If you remember the nude scene in Working Girl, Elizabeth Whitcraft would have been naked and alone with a naked Alec Baldwin behind a closed door in order to film the scene. How long did she have to sit there behind the closed door before the scene started filming?

How is Baldwin a dual threat?

DDonna Tarttty said...

Baldwin is a dual threat in both TV and movies. He was even a movie star for a while ("Hunt for Red October," "The Shadow," "The Getaway," etc., etc.). Now he's just a supporting actor. Used to like him.

Unknown said...

I thought "dual threat" meant acting/something else, like singing.

We really need a definition for a lot of these terms.

Joe said...

Except Baldwin didn't headline "Working Girl"; Melanie Griffith, Harrison Ford and Sigourney Weaver did. And "Beetlejuice" - which arguably he did headline - came out first. Not him.

sandybrook said...

@unknown that is usually what dual threat means. Here it means performing in different formats so Alec is a dual threat because he acts on tv and acts in movies. A triple threat normally would be singing, acting and dancing, here it means being on Broadway, in movies, and on tv

rosie riveter said...

Not to Enty it doesn't. We've been over it quite a bit, I can't remember what it all stands for, but he uses triple threat inaccurately as well

rosie riveter said...

Well shit, I guess I should read everything before I post. Oops

Kay said...

It's Terrence Howard.

His franchise: "Best Man" (so far two, probably more.)
The movie: Love Beat the Hell Outta Me
The actress: Kristen Andreotti (first and only movie, a couple of music videos)

Kay said...

@Don almost got it. He just had the wrong actress. And, yes, there is a nude scene with Terrence and Kristen. It's in the trailer for the movie.

Sandy 2319 said...

I was shooting at a house off of sunset attached to a resturant and the owner said that TH had been there the night before and beat the crap out of some girl. I wasn't there but I had been a fan of his before that, not so much after that.

Anne T. said...

Alec Baldwin is dual threat because of movie career and Hugh A+ level TV career with 30 Rock, SNL frequent guest and his new hit game show. And he is supposed to be a huge jerk.

Kay said...

It's not Baldwin for this one. His first headlining movies were Hunt for Red October and Prelude to a Kiss. Neither has anything close to nudity.

By all accounts, he's a sleeve. But this isn't him.

Kay said...

Sleaze. Or a sleeve. ;)

Terrance Howard has issues with rdj.... From the first Ironman, 2008
In 2009 he has violent issues revealed more likely why he was lowballed out of the movie.

Domestic violence incidents...

In February 2009, it was reported on The Smoking Gun that Howard was arrested in 2001 for a variety of charges related to a violent attack on his estranged first wife, including simple assault, terrorist threats, harassment and stalking. According to police reports, he arrived at her house after an argument on the phone, forced entry into her home by breaking in doors, and chased her into the backyard where he punched her twice in the face with a closed fist. The violent attack ended when Howard's brother stepped in. In 2002, he pleaded guilty to disturbing the peace.[29]

According to The Smoking Gun, Howard was also arrested for assaulting a Continental Airlines flight attendant after refusing her request to return to his seat because the seat belt sign was on.[30]

On December 5, 2011, a judge granted Howard's then-wife Michelle Ghent a restraining order based on her claims that Howard had caused her physical injuries that required medical attention, once broke her computer in half, repeatedly threatened her, and stalked her by telephone and on the Internet.[31]

In August 2013, Howard's second wife, Michelle Ghent, obtained a second restraining order against him after showing up in court with a black eye she says he gave her.[32] Howard initially denied hitting her but, later, admitted in court to a "mutual" physical altercation, which he claimed included being pepper sprayed by Ghent.[33]

In a September 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, Howard admitted to hitting his first wife in 2001 saying, "she was talking to me real strong, and I lost my mind and slapped her in front of the kids."[34]

I think we can rule out Whitcraft, if the blind is accurate. Working Girl was not her first or last movie - she had bit parts in Angel Heart and Birdy before, and Goodfellas and Where Sleeping Dogs Lie after.
