Blind Item #17 - Who Is This Guy?

From Reddit


Little bit of an unconventional one here, but I don’t know where else to ask!

The full story:

I went to a bar with a friend of mine Saturday night in Brooklyn and while I was sitting outside waiting for a car, a guy came out and sat next to me to smoke a cigarette. He started chatting me up and I wasn’t at all interested because he looked a good 20+ years older than me, but then a random group of guys walked by and pointed at him and one of them said, “Hi, Nick!” Cigarette guy muttered something about how he hated getting recognized, then asked me if I knew who he was. I said no and he just stared blankly for a second.

He asked me if I wanted to get a drink and I decided to go ahead because I was really curious. I thought he was for sure fucking with me because he provided no information beyond saying he was an actor, but then he took me to a random mostly empty dive bar and the bartender seemed totally starstruck - in fact, while we were at our table, she came out and acted like a giddy schoolgirl while she brought us free shots. The few other patrons in the bar seemed to keep looking over as well. While we were talking, he told me some things about his life, but absolutely nothing about his career or name.

I wound up leaving before we finished our drinks because he was getting really sexually aggressive and I decided to prioritize my safety over the story, but I was kinda bummed that I wasn’t able to figure out who he was. The more I looked at him, the more familiar he seemed, but it may have just been my mind playing tricks on me.

So, Reddit - can you tell me who this person might be based on the following clues? Or was he most likely just a neighborhood character who set up elaborate schemes to pick up girls?

Appearance: Tall (6’2”-6’3”, maybe?), white, light brown hair (though he was wearing a hat), scruffy beard, probably mid-40s, black wing(?) tattoos on his upper arms. On the slim side, but decently built. Handsome in a rugged older guy way. Deep voice.

Claimed to be an actor and someone called him Nick.

Mentioned that he spent time poor in Albuquerque, moved to New York, and serendipitously became an actor. Now lives in a huge studio in Brooklyn.

Said he had recently broken up with his girlfriend.

Father was Greek, mother was Mexican.

Said he’s currently working with a relatively high-profile New York-based artist named Aaron Young.

According to him, has a huge dick, but I didn’t stick around to confirm.

Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT UPDATE #1: Called the bar right when it opened (about an hour ago) and the guy there told me he'd text the woman who was working that night. He asked me to call him again in a couple of hours, so hopefully we will have answers soon...

Nick could also be a character.

cc423 said...

Nick Offerman?

Brayson87 said...

Wait, so this bim didn't get his name even though the only reason she followed him to a bar was because she thought he might be famous? I call bs, she just doesn't remember his name because she was wasted or maybe he roofied her, she should probably talk to someone.

Audie said...

"Entourage" actor Adrian Grenier currently lives in Brooklyn.
Age: 41

Birthplace: Santa Fe, New Mexico, United States of America

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Nick Stahl? I have no idea how tall he is...

LooksLikeCRicci said...

According to Courtney Robertson, Adrien Grenier also has a huge penis....

nonyabusiness said...

Lol Brayson

Unknown said...

Who cares. Note she wasn't interested until he seemed to be recognized because of course she was "really curiou$"

ckpsjp said...

Nick Stahl is 5"10'

Jared said...

Nick Wechsler https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Wechsler_(actor)

Jon said...

Does he have tats?

Brayson87 said...

You'd think the black wing tattoos on his upper arms would narrow it down.

Sara, Making It Work said...

If the girl is short, she's not going to be accurate with height.

filmfanb said...

Nick Offerman, fits the description somewhat, deep voice, has tattoos on both upper arms. Is married but could be playing that "im single and ready to mingle" approach

Sweets McGee said...

Nicky Katt

Wendy said...

Why would she not just ask him? Or at least what his name was?

Red Photography said...

I agree with Jared, Nick Weschler fits. That breaks my heart--loved him in Revenge.

PghGirl said...

Wild guess....

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/06/18/nick-offerman-revisits-his-brooklyn-waterfront-past

Krab said...

I assumed the writer was a guy.... A gay man is more likely to pick up a man with the huge dick line than a straight guy is with a woman.

La-Juice said...

How has no one answered Nick Cage?

Apricot29 said...

Nick Offerman has been married to Megan Mullaly for years. They haven't broke up either. He's also not a slim guy. Not him.

gauloise said...

Sounds like you were being played by a pick up artist. If a guy is legit he isnt going to be dropping vague references, that is what con artists do, let you fill in the blanks with your dreams and see stuff thats not there to get you interested, its a manipulation ploy.

For ex, prob. the giddy waitress was just happy to have customers in her empty dive bar.

ckpsjp said...

Nick Offerman isn't on the slim side. He has a stocky dad-bod.

Florin said...

Since when does Nick Offerman have a Greek father and Mexican mother?

WhydoIFindthisFun said...

What-a-bout Nick Cage?

ada said...

Nic Cage

joshg g said...

Grenier's mother is Mexican and Indian.

Chloe_vK said...

Adrian Grenier is from New Mexico...

MichiganMama59 said...

Nick Nolte if he had a raspy voice.

Red Photography said...

I feel like Nick Cage is too old to fit the description, and probably wouldn't be described as handsome at this point in his life. I feel like it could possibly also be Nicky Katt.

BestMan said...

Nick Zano.

VeeBee said...

Adrian Grenier played a character named Nick in the 2002 film Love in the Time of Money. Mom was from New Mexico but was "of Mexican descent." No indication his dad was Greek or even had any Greek lineage though; he's from Ohio.

Neil said...

Assuming any of the information provided by the guy is true (as opposed to what she observed directly) could it be Nick Lachey?

Charon1 said...

OK, I don't have a guess, but apparently my definition of what a "deep voice" sounds like isn't shared by any of the other commenters.

Julie said...

Nick Saban!?

Dena said...

+1 Jared Nick Wechsler

Meri Kuh said...

Nick Weschler is only 5'7

Nic Cage was never poor

I like Nicky Katt for this one, Age fits, he is only 5'10 thought but if she's short she could have got the height wrong easily.

MeliticusBee said...

Well over 6 feet TALL
DEEP voice
Spent time POOR in ALBUQUERQUE
LIGHT BROWN hair
OLDER than 40
Decent amount of facial hair
Heritage greek father, Mexican mother
now lives in Brooklyn
His name or a character name is Nick
Large penis
Kind of an asshole

No guesses so far fit all of these

Sara, Making It Work said...

If a group of men is shouting at Adrian Grenier on the street, they're not going to use his character name from a B movie (not even a cult classic) from 16 years ago.
They'd either use his name or his Entourage character name.

Unknown said...

He doesn’t have tattoos as described

Unknown said...

He doesn’t have the body as described.. he has a dad bod, he’s not slim. I’m guessing the person has a slim body like Justin Theroux

Unknown said...

Lol have you seen him lately?... definitely not slim and he has dark hair. Anybody would he able to recognize his face

kiki71 said...

Nick Cage? Isn't he a COPPOLA? Since when was that Greek Mexican? Don't think he is that tall either and would the girl/guy really not recognize who he was?

Unknown said...

Definitely

kiki71 said...

Adrian Grenier is a little over 5'10 according to online stats and they pad these to make actors look bigger so he is probably 5'9" and nowhere near the height listed here.

TVAnnie said...

Nick Lachey is only 5'9".

kiki71 said...

Nick Offerman doesn't fit this blind at all. He is mushy looking, under 6 feet, parents don't fit his profile at all. Don't see it. Chicago background, no Greek or Mexican.

valerie g said...

No idea if these are the right people - Aaron Young as well as Nick Rehberger. You can click on his name at the bottom of the screen to see more pics. Who the hell are these people? (I don't live in New York so I wouldn't know local celebrities..if they are that.)

GrootsArm said...

Nick Cassevettes?

Cail Corishev said...

Social proof is a powerful thing. "Sorry, not interest-- wait, people recognize you? Sure, let's have that drink while you tell me about the size of your cock!"

GeeWallyThatWouldBeWrong said...

Apparently she is sussing it out on Reddit...

https://www.reddit.com/user/smartspice

Mo said...

Weschlet is 5’7”

Mischief Girl said...

This BI is ridiculous. If this is legit, why didn't the writer ask the actor what his last name was? Or what acting work he has done? More importantly, why didn't they just wait until she heard back from the bar worker. Are people that desperate for instant information and gratification that they have to post on reddit?

nancer said...

it's obviously someone people know and recognize. i can't imagine anyone setting this up. i'm lost from the 'greek father and mexican mother' part. can't find an actor like that.

Sharper Teeth said...

I like Nick Cassavetes he doesn't fit all of the clues, but majority.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Actors don't always share their ethnic heritage on their wikis. So just searching for Greek/Mexican is probably a dead end.

Also, he could have made that shit up. Or she was super drunk and is remembering wrong.

Magnolia Rattus said...

Also, I absolutely refuse to believe he cheats on Megan. Refuse!!!

Randyman said...

I think Nicky Katt but he is less than 6 ft tall

Southern Man said...

this is just creepy and pathetic.

and, yes, celebs will be very vague if they sense that someone really doesn't recognize them.
a nice reprieve for a brief moment.

friend rode up a ski lift with Redford years ago in Utah and never realized it til someone mentioned it after they got off.

"I'm Bob. Nice to meet ya." etc.

They had a nice convo and she really had no idea. Of course he had his goggles on and a helmet.

Brayson87 said...

So did this b!tch ever find her Romeo or is she still checking the phone book for every Nick in Brooklyn? This kind of sh!t is why fellows don't use their real names at bars.

Farmgirl said...

Nick Gregory?

Pundit Review said...

Nick Loeb, Sofia Veraga's ex

Humor Me said...

Adam Grenier as to the particulars.

Kathy L said...

Nick Offerman is from Illinois.

nancer said...

grenier doesn't have light brown hair.

Well, she provided a sketch on Reddit. I'm SURE this will break the case. https://i.imgur.com/jwpKrKR.jpg (Fell off my chair laughing)

Cadmium77 said...

A greek/mexican that brags to a woman he just met on the street that he has a huge penis? Surely it must be the man in my avatar

Tricia13 said...

My first thought was Nick Cassavetes as someone said (director/actor but could see him just saying actor to be easier), but Gena Rowlands was Irish/Welch..... he’s also notably older looking than this guy
Adrian isn’t the dude either-been around him and while very attractive, doesn’t have those tats,not real tall(build doesn’t fit), nor does voice...Either does the aggression stuff-nice Guy. A player,but gentleman.
I think I know who it may be but it’s not an ex Gf, so there’s that.

Melissa said...

Nick Cassavetes

Tricia13 said...

He also doesn’t smoke

Tricia13 said...

His mom -actress Gena Rowlands ,is Celtic.

Unknown said...

I’m guessing it’s Nick Zano

Trust the Gorton's Fisherman said...

Is it Nick Gregory? You know, the Gorton's Fisherman guy. He lives on Long Island, and he really is this conceited.

pixiegothy said...

I bet OP made that up for karma points and attention, she already deleted the post... That actor was probably desperate to get laid, she sounds annoying af her other posts/comments are long and lame stuff about her being hypothyroid, pcos, playing sax, crappy music and protein shakes

GeeWallyThatWouldBeWrong said...

@pixiegothy said...

I bet OP made that up for karma points and attention,

//

Yep, took a quick look through her posts history/topics..my bet is on "attention whore".

Tea said...

Apparently reddit deleted it.

Owlette said...

Well damn, I’m hooked and want to know the outcome

Lexi said...

I wonder if it could have been a stage actor who maybe is recognized around town but otherwise wouldn't be generally known?

GeeWallyThatWouldBeWrong said...

[–]smartspice[S] 9 points 49 minutes ago

It looks like the post was inexplicably deleted - I messaged the mods about it, so not sure what happened!

Either way, I posted a second update that said the following:

EDIT UPDATE #2: The guy at the bar said he couldn’t get a hold of the bartender from that night before the end of his shift. He mentioned that she’d be working on Thursday, so I’m going to go try to talk to her in person. I’m as frustrated with the wait as anyone.

I'll post an update when I have it!!

Sara, Making It Work said...

@dahling LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Sara, Making It Work said...

I figured since OP ditched him, maybe he took the bartender home.
Now she "can't be reached".... check the news reports tomorrow for a missing bartender!

(Just kidding but not really.)

Unknown said...

Nicholas Cage?

Bill Beard said...

Enrico Palazzo?

Lindy said...

This is so dumb. Everyone recognized him? Then why not just friggen ask? The waitress even knew. Secondly, why is this even a blind? A guy between girl friends tries to pick someone up. Big whoop.

JustaGuess said...

Not likely: his father was John Cassavetes, and his mother is Gena Rowlands. He's never been poor and never lived in NM. He's newly-engages to a young woman.

MichiganMama59 said...

Nicholas Cage was totally broke https://financebuzz.com/finance-nicolas-cage-buying-spree

Trust the Gorton's Fisherman said...

Did the poster, who nuked their post, say what gender they are? (If indeed they even have a gender. Who knows these days. I've since been informed there are currently as many genders as Baskin Robbins has flavors.) If the rumor mills are to be believed, the Greek-Mexican Nick "Gorton's Fisherman" Gregory fucks anything with a hole. Wouldn't surprise me if he IS the poster.

LakeLadyinVA said...

Nick Manning is my first thought

Skyler the Weird said...

Santa Claus? Is that you Nick?

LakeLadyinVA said...

Nick “dropping loads” Manning

PotPourri said...

Nick Wechsler does not appear to have tattoos unless they are recent, and he's 5'7" at best.

Not Nick Offerman.

Nick Jonas?

Nick Zano has a Cross Tattoo

Kel said...

He fits it!!!!!

atd8vii said...

If this girl was as curious as she says she was then perhaps should have just asked a few questions of her own. The likelihood of narrowing down a person based on a few vague descriptions is 8,000,000 to 1.

c17 said...

It's reddit. The place where wanna-be writers go to home their skilz.
In other words - it's BS. (◔_◔)

Mo said...

I have been googling Greek and Mexican actors for several hours now. It occurred to me that maybe he’s not even Greek or Mexican. Maybe she mixed it up! Surprisingly, her sketch was of no assistance.

Swinfa said...

Nick Damici

momo said...

Nick Gomez is totally hot but not gay last I knew him. He's done a LOT of movies. Don't know about the Greek thing...

Lexi said...

I wondered Gomez too.

Susan M said...

If he's part Greek, maybe his name is actually Niko or Nico.

Unknown said...

LMAOOOO listen it helps! It looks like Nick Cassavetes. He’s not someone I’d recognize though

Jennacheryl said...

Spending time in Albuquerque, could have been a movie or t.v. shoot. Does not mean that he lived there. NM huge cinematic scene for both movies and tv shows.
If it were Adrian people would have called him Adrian.
However.... it may have been one of the dudes from centrifuge maybe.

Starla Scribe said...

Nick Cage has these tattoos:

http://nicolas-cage.tattoostattoo.com/

He was recently filming "Running with the Devil" in Albuquerque. Method acting?

Sd Auntie said...

AG is well endowed!

Sd Auntie said...

Ewww Pundit. NL is not famous.

TB. said...

+1

Sara, Making It Work said...

I went through the trouble of reading this. According to OP's & others' comments:

It's NOT Stahl (too babyfaced)
NOT Cassavetes (too old)
NOT Cage (she said she'd willingly have fucked him, if just to brag about it)

POSSIBLY Zano (he looks like the pictures, but the reality looked much older than the Google images. She's apparently never heard of makeup or photoshop. Also, apparently Zano is said to own a hat like the one she drew. The sketch was helpful, who knew.)

ALSO- The "wing" tattoos were obscured by t-shirt sleeves. Could actually be tribal or crosses. Definitely black, at least. She claims they were on both biceps, though Zano only has a tattoo on one bicep.

chinchillin said...

IF he was willing to discuss the nationality of his parents, relationship status and the size of his dick...why didn't she just inquire about who the hell he was, and if he was indeed an actor and not just a regular bar fly who all the staff knew? If a guy was willing to tell me about the size of his johnson after a drink or two, I would have no problem asking him what movies/tv shows he worked on (insert eyeroll) I mean come on, if he was THAT famous she probably would have recognized him, considering all the patrons and staff were "starstruck"We live in an information era, everyone and everything is there in your phone. Give me a break on this one.

Sara, Making It Work said...

She is also definitely a she, and he's not Kroll or Offerman.

Viking Song said...

He was most likely "local famous." I really don't understand why everyone is so invested in this story. Nothing happens.

pixiegothy said...

My thoughts exactly @GeeWally! She said she didn't delete her post and now people will have to wait until thursday to know who is the guy lol. I think it's all bs. Why can't she recognize him after so many actor names suggested, I mean he can't be that different in real life.

Lu Geiger said...

If not for the tattoos i'd say nic cage

Orla Collins said...

Er..not to go OT or anything but what's the deal with the impending Don Henley exposé. Oh that's right, cos there won't be any, will there!

sysadmn said...

Just to be different, Nick Wechsler. A bunch of roles in minor, but well loved series. Pros: 40ish, tall, dark, Born in ABQ, NM. Cons: Lives in LA, went to LA after High School, not NYC.

hippy chk said...

Maybe a character he played was named Nick?

Cail Corishev said...

No idea whether the story is real, but if it's not obvious that this was written by a woman, you can try running the text through a gender analyzer. That one is 82% sure this writer is female, which is about 17% less sure than I was.

Jae Reekay said...

LOL @ some of the guesses in here...good lord are yall for real???

J B said...

I don't think Zano is famous enough to get recognized by ppl in the bar, I had never even heard of him until this blind.

K OB said...

Ugh, so 20+ years older is not such an obstacle for you when the guy dangles possible fame (by association) and fortune in front of you. What a piece of work!

Newbomb said...

Sal Salington said...

From Reddit.

Let me repeat that, from Reddit.

Since Enty lost Himmmmmmmmmmmmm, he's resorting to Reddit for blinds.

NancyFromNebraska said...

At the risk of coming across as a cunt: This is not an interesting blind. Everyone has this exact story. Literally everyone. Are they in entertainment or politics? Who knows and who cares - because we all have this story.

Wendy said...

20+ years is the key here. Nick Zano doesn't look like he is that much over 30....

Halloweenie said...

Emmm I'm guessing nick is not his real name? And I'm guessing this is probably a made up blind for attention. Similar to many things posted by various mentally unstable attention whorish type of anonymous people on the interwebs.

Epileptic Spudmonkey said...

Himmmm wouldn't show his face(s) around here right now, after the "Henley goes down in may" fiasco proved the whole deck of cards to be BS...

Halo said...

Did she ever give us an update? I checked out the thread on Reddit but it seems to have stalled.

Green Tea said...

She posted this on Reddit 7 hours ago.

UPDATE

I just went to the bar where he took me and spoke to the bartender from that night. I explained that I came in with a guy, described him, and she said, “Oh, Nicholas!”

Turns out the guy frequents the bars around here and he’s a character so everyone in the neighborhood knows him. She mentioned that she was excited to see him because he was best friends with her cousin.

I wonder how often he’s (successfully?) done this in the past, but either way, this has been an exciting journey. Until next time...

And if you click on the "Reddit" link Enty provided, everything is still there.

Mo said...

Go figure. It wasn’t Nick Cage.

It's tea time said...

Turned out to be no one. Here is the rest of the post."I just went to the bar where he took me and spoke to the bartender from that night. I explained that I came in with a guy, described him, and she said, “Oh, Nicholas!” "

I told you it was all for karma, lol, OP trolled hard that sub. If this story is real, then the guy is probably a drug dealer, that's why everyone knew him ;)

Thank you for posting the update.

Are you sure it was nobody? Maybe the bar is covering for him. Seems like Jared Leto. He fits the description and they just played MSG last week.
