Blind Item #3

This former A list mostly television actor from a long running network show who is about to have another shot at network television refused to give a part to someone who thought he was a good friend. They are former co-stars and one is kind of down on his luck acting wise but the former A lister said a part was a no go.

Matt Le Blanc? As the Former A list

cheesegrater15 said...

Christopher Meloni?

Jean Grey said...

I think you got it cheesegrater15 ...

Sara, Making It Work said...

Noah Wyle has a new show coming up. Don't know which costar he's snubbing. Not Anthony Edwards, he's doing Broadway....

ckpsjp said...

Not Matt LeBlanc - he's not down on his luck, acting wise. He had five seasons of Episodes and Man with a Plan is in it's second season.

Melissa said...

Shemar Moore and Thomas Gibson. Old show was Criminal Minds. New show is SWAT.

Tricia13 said...

I like the Noah Wyle guess-known doucher. Could be Eric La Salle or Scott Grines(not much work there)

Jean Grey said...

I just checked it out.. You're right ckpsjp..

Dena said...

I was thinking Zach Braff & Donald Faison...

cheesegrater15 said...

Oooh, Dena. I like that guess better.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Not "about to" have another show. Alex Inc has been on for a few weeks already.

Countervail said...

Except for Chris Meloni, I would have no problem never seeing any of the other guesses acting or giving down-on-their-luck acting co-workers another shot.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Maybe Frank Whaley (they were in Swing Kids together). He works, but nothing of note in a long time.

Unknown said...

Scott Grimes is on the Orville, so probs not him.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I'm thinking not somebody on ER. Seems like that might have been mentioned in the blind. But you're right, I haven't seen Grimes in a while. LaSalle is producing stuff.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I would love to see him reunite with Lee Tergeson from Oz.
So I hope this blind is not about them.

Noah Wyle has this pilot

Eriq LaSalle works more behind the camera now. With the recent departures of some exec producers in the Chicago franchise, I think Eriq is now an executive producer, on top of him already directing episodes. I don't even know if he wants to act anymore, and if he does, he could easily take a part on one of those established shows that he's already connected with.

Normal. Yes indeed. said...

How about a Doors reunion? Val, Frank, Kyle and Kevin together again.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

Is SWAT on yet? Because if not, I like the Shemar Moore guess. Thomas Gibson is far more of a former A list tv star than the others, and his infamously getting kicked off the show for attacking a writer may be what is keeping Moore from getting hiiiiiiii m the part-- he's bad news now.

mercyprosperity said...

Jon Cryer or Matt Leblanc

Sara, Making It Work said...

Actually could be someone from SNL.
Not David Spade, I wouldn't call him former A (disagree all you want). Plus his new show is cable.
Hader's new show is cable too.

But there's decades of former A listers....

MichiganMama59 said...

Why does everyone hate Chris Meloni

Sign Name Below said...

Just going to pop in to point out that the former A list is the actor with the new gig. Some answers seem to be getting that backward.
A: former A list actor/was in long-running network/RETURNING to tv after a presumable absence
B: actor, former co-star of A (presumably on long-running network show) who is down on his luck

Glue said...

I second the question by MichiganMama59 - Why do you all hate Chris Meloni?

Did he do something horrible? Or is because he quit Law and Order (while I know that sounds like a stupid reason, I've seen people on this site hate for much less).

.robert said...

I have friends that I absolutely would not want to ever work with.

Sagan said...

Noah Wyle just finished "The Librarians" which didn't get renewed. Eriq LaSalle directed a few episodes of that show.

So, if it's Noah Wyle, his down-on-his-luck, thought-he-and-XYZ-were-friends, could be a cast member from The Librarians.. Christian Kane, or John Larouquette...

Or John Larouquette (long-running network show being "Night Court"), down on his luck actor friend hoping for a role could be Harry Anderson (Judge Harry Stone on 'Night Court')

AIP said...

Sadly Episodes has ended, but leBlanc is doing brilliantly as the lead presenter on (UK) Top Gear. Who knew he’d be a natural!?!

Nubian Princess said...

Shemar Moore gut-hates Thomas Gibson. Gibson was the reason he left CM. There's been blinds here about how abusive Gibson was. I do hope he asked, just so Shemar could slap his ass down.

DDonna Tarttty said...

Don't think this is Matt LeBlanc, but the first season of "Episodes" was one of the most consistently hilarious sitcoms of the past 10 years. I howled a lot.

The later seasons were not as consistent, but Kathleen Rose Perkins always made it worth watching. That actress deserves wider recognition: great timing, delivery and an comically expressive face. Love her.

SkittleKitty said...

Agree with @DDonna Tarttty re: Episodes & Perkins. (I'm just catching up with the series on Netflix; saw the first season when we had Showtime for a few months after a move...)

Wasn't there an awful blind revealed to be Noah Wyle?

Glue said...

Double AGREE w/ Ddonna Tarttty! Kathleen Rose Perkins completely made that show (also a nod to Daisy Haggard in the show who was the nasaly mumbler but never really spoke. Such a small but hilarious role).

And yes SkittleKitty there was a blind about him. Noah Wyle is a complete douche-bag asshole. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if he tried to stop someone else from working.

Sara, Making It Work said...

@Normal,
I'm up for that, as long as Crispin Glover reprises his role as Andy Warhol!

Sara, Making It Work said...

Orrrrrr this could be Nathan Fillion. He's got a new show coming up that he's also producing.
"Friend" could be Adam Baldwin from Firefly (who guest starred on Castle, so it wouldn't be unexpected to get a role here), or one of his Castlw costars that he screwed over by getting the show cancelled.

T. W. said...

@Jean Grey

LeBlanc's show has been on CBS since 2016. The blind says the actor is about to have another show on network tv.

T. W. said...

@Melissa

SWAT has been on the air for a while. Doesn't fit the blind as written.

T. W. said...

@Sara, Making It Work

Grimes was on that Seth McFarlane sci-fi show on FOX. I don't know if it has been renewed.

T. W. said...

@Melvin the Reanimated

SWAT is currently on the air and it is a good show.

T. W. said...

@Sagan

Not Larouquette. Life in Pieces has been on for 3 years.

AIP said...

+1 for the Kathleen Rose Perkins love. She’s adorable on Twitter and the Karen-hands in the hiling scenes always made me giggle. I tuned in for Mangan and Greig (Green Wing 4eva), but Kathleen is arguably the most watchable thing in it.
I’ve not actually watched the last episodes - heh - yet as I’m sad it’s ended

Sara, Making It Work said...

I don't. He's freaky hot. Like you'd need a safeword.

Unknown said...

I am thinking Tracy Morgan as the guy having a show again- he was on SNL & 30 Rock. Don't know who he isn't helping out though.

Dusty Fairy said...

Does anyone else remember a really awful BI about Noah Wyle? It made it sound like he wouldn’t be working again...

Dusty Fairy said...

Dusty Fairy said...

It has been. And it’s terrible (sorry, Seth!)

Dusty Fairy said...

Omg, me too. And Ryan O’Reilly!

Dusty Fairy said...

Episodes was SO GREAT. I wish it wasn’t cancelled. So original.

Dusty Fairy said...

I agree. And full frontal in Oz didn’t hurt!

Dusty Fairy said...

Episodes knew! :)

Dusty Fairy said...

She’s a genius. That show was chock full of talent.

bianca said...

Scott Grimes has had steady work as a voice actor on American Dad for the last 13 years. He also is a regular on The Orville, which has been renewed for a second season.

Eric LaSalle was just in Logan, in addition to his behind the scenes directing & producing.

Noah Wyle executive producers The Librarians tv series, and occassionally appears as "The Librarian."

Adam Baldwin has been on the Eric Dane The Last Ship show for a few years.

BonnyPommy said...

Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer, to be different
