Blind Item #8

It is pretty interesting that this A- list mostly movie actor from an acting family who has been busted for hitting on underage women and harassing others made the movie he did not that long ago. It turns out the subject of that movie has a lot in common with the actor. The subject of the movie traveled the country with the woman he called his wife and they would find teenage boys after their lecture and ply the boys with booze and weed and then have threesomes with the teen boys. Eventually, the police started taking note of their activities so they now hole up on the west coast and even changed their last name.

James Franco, Tommy Wiseau

Somebody please arrest Franco & put him away forever and a day.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Nah, this is supposed to be about 127 Hours/ Aron Ralston. He was a motivational speaker for years before multiple domestic violence incidents. He seems to have dropped off the map a few years ago.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Well, we all immediately knew it was Franco. Wiseau seems like he has some major skeletons in his closet.

if it is Ralston, then his "wife" is probably his girlfriend Vita Shannon, also charged with domestic assault at the same time.

@Geeljire,
Go on......

When would Tommy Wiseau have been giving "lectures," and about what?

Mag said...

Wiseau is not holed up anywhere. He was on stage at the Golden Globes with Franco and he has a new movie called Best F(r)iends with Greg Sestero (oh, hi Mike). Not him.
PS: Surprisingly, the movie's been getting quite good reviews on the indie circuit.

plot said...

Has Ralston changed his name or is he using another name for any reason?

Yeah, he doesn't seem to have done much since 2010 accept commencement speeches.

Tommy Wiseau is a speaker on the college circuit

The Citizen Kane of Bad Movies” has infiltrated college lecture halls

Wiseau has never been married (as far as we know, he's a weirdo mofo) so this is either about Greg Sestero or the 127 hours guy.

Mag said...

Sestero is not holed up under another name either. He has a new movie with Wiseau and is giving interviews :D Must be 127 Hours.

AKA said...

Yea, not Tommy. Has anyone seen him w/ a woman? He's not holed up anywhere. He's shows up at The Room screenings all over town every single week.

Predilecto said...

Is this a joke? Aron Ralston recently gave a speech in Denver.

So he hasn't changed his name and isn't holed up way out west. He is in Colorado where he's always been and giving talks.

There should be more proper sleuthing before tarnishing a person's name.
As far as Franco, where are those reports about his acting schools? Nothing came of that. He will bounce back because will forget about a handful of females that accused him of stuff. The acting school stuff was the nail in the coffin. Without it, Franco will make a comeback.

Maybe real journalists looked into and found nothing?

Predilecto said...

Actually this could be about Michael Glatze....

I kept looking and came back to post that!

It could be Stephen Elliott who Franco played in the Adderall Diaries (2015). He is from Los Angeles and has a history of drug abuse and non-conventional sex.

Also the blind says "the woman he called his wife" so they might not be actually married, but just said they were. Wiseau never talks about his personal life or family so no one knows his marital status.

It cant be 127 hours that movie was almost a decade ago (2010) and it says a movie from "not that long ago"

Sara, Making It Work said...

And nobody is tarnishing anybody's name. These are comments on a gossip blog, not anchors on an evening news show or anything. Lighten up. 😊

Predilecto said...

I am lightened up. I guess sarcasm doesn't translate well online. It's all good.

But seriously, the comments by the poster Rusty Writer are frightening if true. That Glatze guy has some serious mental issues. This blind is most definitely about Glatze and Franco.

HeatherErica said...

Franco and Tommy, I'm going to vomit.

plot said...

" where are those reports about his acting schools? Nothing came of that."

Except the schools were closed, suddenly.

"He will bounce back because will forget about a handful of females that accused him of stuff."

That's certainly what Franco fervently hopes.

@Predilecto

Damn! Good find! I wondered what happened to Michael Glatze, thought he was still in the Evangelical fold. Thanks so much for the link!

Bec1553 said...

What about Arnie Hammer?

plot said...

Reading those articles this BI is definitely Michael Glatze/Elliot.


I wonder who dropped the bomb about these on road activities with his so-called wife?

SteveD said...

I think what we've learned here is that every person who has lived will eventually be played be Franco in a film.

You do realize this is a celebrity blind item GOSSIP blog, yes?

No one here is giving grand jury testimony, Francis.
Cool your jets.

Jerome Reiter said...

Franco played Michael Glatze, the "ex-gay" who used to publish teen soft porn before briefly becoming a pastor. Glatze quit his job so fast he did not know where he was going. He went through 29 states, first east and then west to San Francisco. Then Glatze legally changed his last name to Elliott (so did the wife) and they killed all their social media presence, going underground. Rumors of underage sex have followed Michael Glatze, now Michael Elliott, since his days as a Boy Scout camp counselor.
