Blind Item #2

This former A+ list mostly television actor turned A+ list mostly movie actor who doesn't really do much of either lately has one big movie franchise under his belt. He also has been verbally and physically abusive to his significant other in recent months and it is getting worse.

Clooney

Bruce Willis? Has multiple franchises though

cheesegrater15 said...

Pierce Brosnan? Which I absolutely don't want to believe, but I can't think of anybody else who was A+ to A+ with a big movie franchise.

Goddess said...

Ben Affleck

Erin Sheehy said...

Chris Pratt?

Brayson87 said...

Clooney has Oceans, but I don't know if I could see him knocking Amal around.

cheesegrater15 said...

B Coop? But what franchise? The Hangover?

Brayson87 said...

Dammit Kermit, you be nice to Miss Piggy!

Tricia13 said...

Will Smith/Jada maybe

Tricia13 said...

MIB the franchise

Brayson87 said...

@Tricia, they fit, but I feel like the blind would have mentioned he was also a rapper/singer, unless that would be too obvious.

Brayson87 said...

Ugh there's so many that fit, but I hate playing "Guess the Wife Beater"

Hunny Bunny said...

The one thing that says The Smiths to me is that recently I saw a headline quoting Will Smith saying something like "it's not up to me to make my wife happy". I could have sworn in the past we all had to sit thru syrupy, get-yer-boots-on rounds of how in love they were and how they satisfy each other and it's up to them as a couple (and all couples should hold themselves to this standard too) to uplift and support and do anything & everything to please the other.

Maybe it depends on which area of the sky Xenu is in?? Hmmm... they're fake, fake, fake.

Tricia13 said...

That’s true.... not sure though?

Han Niam said...

@cheese That would be two franchises for Cooper. He’s also in Guardians of the Galaxy movies.

cc423 said...

I can totally see Chris Pratt behaving like this.

DDonna Tarttty said...


Blind says "ONE big movie franchise." Doesn't mean he might not have another one that's not such a b.o. juggernaut. Also "under his belt" sounds like it could be no longer active.

Is "Die Hard" an active franchise? Is "Men In Black"? Is "Oceans [##]"? What other A+ TV actors have become A+ movie stars? Not a lot. My likelihood guess for this would be Willis, Smith, Clooney. As much as I dislike Clooney, he just doesn't seem to fit the bill (though you never know). Smith is creepy now, but Willis actually comes off as nasty, phony and self-hating, wasting himself in all those shitty direct to DVD films, plus the "Death Wish" remake looks awful and is made by that (hopefully) pretend snuff film guy. So gross.

Denzel ? Equalizer now a franchise, but 'big' I don't know..

cheesegrater15 said...

Han, you're right. I completely forgot about those movies. I'm so superheroed out I haven't seen anything since the first Avengers movie except the first season of Jessica Jones.

Sign Name Below said...

Denzel was never A+ tv.
Chris Pratt is working all the time.
Bruce Willis works regularly and has multiple franchises.
Coop was never A+ tv.
Ben Affleck was never A+ tv.

The only guess that works so far is Clooney.

B626 said...

George is pouting because AMAL
won’t do ANAL

Sign Name Below said...

I missed the Pierce Brosnan guess. It works but I really don't see this being him

Do Tell said...

Denzel was on St Elsewhere which was very popular when it was on. That said, don't think it's him. What was his franchise?

Nonya Bidness said...

Def not Brosnan, he is a very devoted husband. He was devastated when his first wife died of ovarian cancer, then remarried many years later and is clearly still smitten with his second wife even though she put on a significant amount of weight years ago. (Just pointing it out because that is rare for an actor.) He's one of the good ones.

Teri L said...

Clooney fits the blind....but I can't see Amal taking any b.s.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

What about Martin Lawrence? big TV star that became big movie star, has a couple of franchises under his belt (Bad Boys and, *ahem* BIG Momma's House hint hint hint) and actually has a history of abusive behavior behind him. Doesn't act that much anymore and got engaged last April.

Jean Grey said...

Patrick Dempsey?

AListDiva said...

This isn't Pratt, because he was never A+ while he was on tv, and he has Jurassic World 2 coming out in June, and they just announced Jurassic World 3.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Just to reiterate the "one of the good ones".....Pierce Brosnan was at Disneyland several years ago while I was there. I saw him multiple times in the park, he was always talking to people and very friendly. I approached him, we spoke briefly, I said I liked him as 007 and certainly Remington Steele, but thought his performance in "The Matador" was phenomenal. We also talked about how weird but fascinating Disneyland is. He had kids with him who rode the rides, but I never saw him on one or waiting for one. Wanted to get my picture with him, but that seemed really gauche.

But honestly, I noticed him maybe a half dozen times or more that day around the park and he always made time to talk to people.

Sign Name Below said...

I hope it is not Martin Lawrence. I always liked him and had hoped he had his ego and issues behind him. I am rooting for him.

Sign Name Below said...

Plus Martin has two big franchises.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

WS has 2 franchises. Bad Boys

Low Key said...

Pratt does NOT fit this blind, he works constantly and has 2 major franchises going currently.

sandybrook said...

Eddie Murphy

Xpensive Hobutt said...

PeeWee Herman

just sayin' said...

Sounds like he's not married, since Enty said "significant other".

nancer said...

so now clooney is gay AND a wife beater. ok.

hothotheat said...

He's beating his wife because she's not a man. Or is she? Kinda looks manish from certain angles.

PoliticallyIncorrect71 said...

He’s a sociopath.

Kno Won Uno said...

Who’s the SO, though?

Kno Won Uno said...

Ddona, I agree with this.
I want to mention that I appreciate that you didn’t politicize any of the Clooney or Smith guesses.
Thank you. Really.

Kno Won Uno said...

Nice story. I always liked him since Remington Steele.

TruthSayer said...

Definitely not Will and Jada. She's from Baltimore and used to hang with Tupac; she wouldn't take that s***.

Bill Philly said...

I like the late Murphy guess here.

Kno Won Uno said...

Good guess.
He’s got 99 problems and most of them are women.
Wasn’t there a BI about his weight requirements for an SO?

mapstothestars said...

Depp? Was he A+ from 21JS?

Marybel said...

Always have thought Clowney was gay - this new family mode is definitely because he's got his finger in the wind for public office. I can't see him living on the same side of the house as Amal, for some reason.

Cindy McKracken said...

+1

More Cowbell said...

I've met Pierce Brosnan, and I definitely think it isn't him. He came across as sensitive and caring about his kids and wife who had cancer. I've also met Clooney, and although he seemed like a player, he seemed mellow and non-violent. I like the other guesses better.

Back to the 'Bu said...

I'm from Malibu - grew up on Broad Beach Road and my mom's BF lived in the Colony. She had the same personal trainer as Keeley (Pierce Brosnan's wife) and they all were close friends. No way in hell is this Pierce Brosnan. No way. Nicest dude ever. I can say with 100% certainty that's it's not him . . . I just wanted to put that out there for anyone speculating it's him.

More Cowbell said...

Okay, I'm throwing my hat in the ring for Bruce Willis. I could imagine him having anger issues.

Kerry said...

Willis has a new movie out

Kerry said...

Wasn’t he movie, tv, movie?

putchka said...

Definitely not George. IMO, always had respect for women. Willis, I could believe.
