Blind Item #14

I was talking to a new friend who has been in and around music his entire life and it reminded me of a story. Back in the day at this benefit concert, there were these two actors. At the time, one was an A+ list television actor who was known all over the world from a hit show. Also there and about a decade or more younger I think was this A list mostly movie actor who was still a teen or close to it. Anyway, they both struck out and missed with this entire group of women from Playboy. Who did the Playboy women want to be with? This goofy looking country singer who was a 30 year old overnight success and is still goofy looking but has lost all his hair too. He is so good when he gets a chance at acting roles. The actors at this festival just couldn't believe they had been turned down because it so rarely happened.

Dwight Yoakam?

I’m going with Dwight Yoakum. He has been in many things acting wise and he is really good.

Dwight Yoakum

sandybrook said...

Lyle lovitt fits this because he signed a record deal when he was 29 and Live Aid fits the concert too. But he still has hair.

Low Key said...

Has Lyle Lovett lost his hair?
When you say "goofy looking country singer" that's who comes to mind.

Or Dwight Yoakham maybe...

Scotty B said...

Dwight Yoakum. Great character actor. He killed it in Logan Lucky last year.

Tricia13 said...

One of the friends guy for the TV actor-probably LeBlanc?

Nutty_Flavor said...

Yoakum must have had something to lure Sharon Stone into a relationship, as brief as it was.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Yoakam, because he's a much better actor than Lovett.

Jon Whitfield said...

I was thinking Don Johnson for the dude who got turned down

jessorella said...

I’d love to say Chris Isaak - he was naturally comedic when he guest-starred on Friends, and Wicked Game is one of the sexiest songs evaaaah. But I see he still has all his hair, so...

Unknown said...

I loved that she called him a “shit sandwich”

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Nutty,
Yoakam wears his jeans so tight, you csn tell what he's hot.
But remember, Lovett got Julia Roberts, so maybe he had something too.

I thought they were both hot. Idk. I like weird.

YummyBoogers said...

Is the new friend who has been in/around music his entire life either Sean Lennon or Dhani Harrison? Just curious.

Tuesdi said...

Hard to believe it is Dwight Yoakum. When he and Sharon Stone broke up I remember an interview she gave saying he was boring and that "A dirt sandwich is better than Dwight Yoakum". or something like that.

Pilot Gal said...

Billy Corgan?

Oldsguy65 said...

Dwight Yoakam for sure. His debut Guitars, Cadillacs album was awesome, and his hair is gone. I think he looks better wearing a cowboy hat anyway.

RingoSkater said...

Yoakam. So unlikable (and good) in Sling Blade.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Dwight Yoakam was just about 30, and a rising star, when he played Farm Aid in 1986.
Maybe from that we can figure out the actors. Someone late teensish, someone late 20sish.
I'll go with Charlie Sheen for the younger.

Tricia13 said...

I think she said he was as boring as a dirt sandwich... it was pretty harsh lol

Hunny Bunny said...

Well, I'm not sure if it's his "original" hair/mullet these days but I'm voting Billy Ray Cyrus.

jujub said...

Dwight Yoakum, almost positive, fits the description. Got big in the early 90s. Going to say this took place around 1992 or 1993. Because of that, for the actors, might be David Hasselhoff, Baywatch was one of the most popular shows Internationally at the time, Hasselhoff is known the world over; ie singing, acting, A+ for the period. The younger actor is prob Leonardo DiCaprio, would've been 18-19 around that time, just starting his movie career. "Mostly movie actor', because he was also on Growing Pains for a year.

YummyBoogers said...

The country singer is Yoakum. Wasnt he the POS boyfriend of Carl's mom in Slingblade?

Don Kieballs said...

I don't know, but it was fun looking up country stars who went bald. So many "why they wear hats" gifs I never knew existed

nancer said...

yeah, yoakum for sure. he's a shockingly good actor. i never saw whatever it is he's got but he definitely has a way with women.

Brayson87 said...

Doc Miles is the sheeit, not surprised.

T. W. said...

I would take boring over insane any day.

I would take boring over pedo any day.

I wonder if Sharon thinks of Dwight as the one that got away.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

He is a fantastic actor. He oozes menace when he plays heavies. Great voice too.

Penelope said...

@YummyBoogers, yes. And he was excellent!

Jennifer Johnson said...

First post here. Dwight Yoakam, goofy looking? I don't think so. Garth Brooks, definitely goofy looking.

Thing is, both hit it big at 30, and both are balding. So it could be either one of them depending on the way you define goofy looking.

LondonGirl said...

Dwight Yoakam, Live Aid 1985? Bill Cosby or David Hasslehoff...teenage actor would be early 50s now.....

plot said...

Yoakum was really good in Minus Man, too, playing a cop (possibly in the fantasies of the main character.) Dwight has no hesitation in looking menacing and ugly for a role. He's been amazing in anything he acted in.

LondonGirl said...

Josh Brolin for the teenage actor, Goonies was huge that year.

Phelps said...

jujub took my whole answer. Yoakum played Farm Aid regularly from the early 80s through today.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@jujub
Hasselhoff is a fair guess, but it would be Knight Rider era, not Baywatch.

Also, NOT Live Aid. Dwight is more of a Farm Aid kinda guy. And I just don't see Hef sending the Playmates off to the UK. Texas is more their speed.

And the younger actor might also be Matthew Broderick.

Sher said...

Farm Aid II 1986

Dwight Yoakam
Don Johnson
Rob Lowe

Now I see why it was so surprising!

Do Tell said...

"Benefit concert from back in the day" makes me think of The Concert For Bangladesh, if only because of all the Harrison speculation from earlier.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Farm Aid in Manor Texas 1986

Playboy girls were there same block of time as Dwight Yoakam.

Notable actors making an appearance:

Don Johnson
Rob Lowe
Robert Guillaume
David Soul
John Schneider
Jack Wagner

I like Don Johnson and Rob Lowe

Jon said...

LiveAid was in Philadelphia and London

Scandi Sanskrit said...

I didn't know Leo was in "Growing Pains"? My mother loved that show. LOL. Thanks for mentioning that.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

TW, I don't mind Enty posting pedo blind items because they are necessary to expose. What I can't stand is commenters trying to make innocent kindness blind items into pedo blinds. It makes me sick.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

No, it makes me think of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s (back when it was a death sentence).

Terry Teratoma said...

I'll co-sign Yoakum because I don't know too many country singers, but I know Yoakum, mostly because of his acting, and he really is a very good actor.

jujub said...

Dwight Yoakum was in the lineup at Farm Aid VI in 1993. He was 37 and reaching the peak of his success, 'This Time' was just released, containing some of his biggest hits. Dwight was never in Farm Aid in 1986. Check the lineup. Although, he would be 30 at the time, and just released his first album. He could've been there backstage. But thinking it would be more in the 1993 when he performed there.

Sher said...

jujub- he was there in 1986. There are youtube videos of the performance as well.

See the 1p to 4p slot on this one page lineup list:
http://stillisstillmoving.com/willienelson/farm-aid-ii-all-star-lineup-1986/

Don Johnson and Rob Lowe are also on there, as well as the Playboy Girls of Rock n Roll.

AngryLiberalKTS. said...

Haha yep, he was good too.

trixie comments said...

Dwight - great actor, can be charming, and bald as a cue ball. No touching the hat!

T. W. said...

@ Scandi Sanskrit - I don't think I understand. I think you are saying you are happy to read a blind about a boring person. I hope I understand.

Sometimes people are exciting because they are crazy. As a woman I can say security is of utmost important. If a man cannot make you feel secure you will have a difficult time loving and respecting him, mainly because he cannot provide love and respect to anyone.
