Blind Item #4

It turns out this former A+ list mostly movie actor who dropped off the face of the earth when he started loving buffets more than acting somehow recently got a gig and got to cast the second lead female. You think he has reformed? Nope. He made this foreign born B+ list mostly movie actress hit the casting couch with him for an entire weekend.

Russell Crowe

BlissBoo said...

Russell Crowe.

andrea said...

Russell Crowe was first thought but is foreign born. I’m thinking of actors who have gained weight. Brendan Fraser?

HeatherBee said...

Never mind. Mixed up my foreign borns

Tricia13 said...

Val Kilmer

Jed Starnes said...

The blind doesn’t state that the fat actor was foreign-born.

Jed Starnes said...

+1 Tricia 13 / Top Gun 2?

Tricia13 said...

Movie could be Riptide-actress Jocelyn Hudson (not sure she’s FB)

andrea said...

You may have it. He got a role in TG2??! Tommy boy would let him cast a female. Don’t see any women cast yet but may come out soon

Ophelia said...

I though Val Kilmer had cancer and that's why he stopped acting

Tricia13 said...

Exactly forstbthiught was TG3 but not sure if female cast.. he has another film in Pre Production(Riotide) I think

Geeljire said...

Isn't he a tranny now

nonyabusiness said...

He's been blacklisted from HW.

nancer said...

and what is HW?

BlissBoo said...

Definitely Russell Crowe. They forgot to add foreign. NOT Val or Brendon. Rourke isn't overweight.

J said...

"Made" her hit the casting couch?

With a gun to her head?

T. W. said...

@Valerie

Can is fighting throat cancer but he acts when he can get a gig. As someone else pointed out he has been blacklisted.

BlissBoo said...

In this case HW is Hollywood.

nonyabusiness said...

Hollywood. I just didn't feel like putting he full word. Lol.

nonyabusiness said...

Fraser has lost a bunch of weight

Trapped said...

Fraser is nearly broke he made some terrible investments...
It’s really Hollyweird, because it’s the land and city where anything goes.
I still don’t see how one keep going back to your abuser, for the next job
I will gladly stay they way I am and I know that hard work got me a raise and not sleeping with anyone for a raise.

Trapped said...

Oh and Val K had a voice over for some film work he did a year ago






OT: I want to say that you all are smart on this site, I don’t know how you know so much personal information on the stars

I'm with Sara and Steven Seagal. Russell Crowe hasn't dropped off the face of the Earth he's making 2 or 3 movies a year. Kilmers sick, Fraser's on TV.

Gylly said...

Gun to her career, yes.

yepthatsme said...

She will cry #metoo when offers and roles dry up!

J said...

And of course she's too pretty to learn how to program computers, or do landscape design, or any other regular job... those are for ordinary-looking people, Gylly!

Newbomb said...

Val Kilmer is couching Mickey Rourke. Tons of fun.

LondonGirl said...

Crowe...what an absolute unit he is now

hothotheat said...

The requirement of sexual favors for a job is sexlual harrassment whether the "applicant" participates or not.

I'm going to repeat this until the idiots who victim/blame get it.

hothotheat said...

And she would be right. Sexual harrassment.

memyselfandi said...

So when are these women going to start saying "fuck that" and walk away from this casting couch ridiculous? I'm a supporter of the MeToo movement when it involves acts of forced and unwarranted violation of men and women. But this casting couch shit is just...prostitution. have some respect for yourself and walk away, report the attempt, and blast the incident on social media so people can stop supporting these pigs.

Thia said...

I don't think any of these guesses really work. Crowe, from accounts here, can't last 30 seconds and makes whores want to vomit - so no way the whole weekend. Plus he's steadily been working. Steven Seagal did a ton of work in 2016 and has worked in 2017 and this year. Brendon Fraser, while looking a touch plump, has been in some tv shows recently.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Sometimes when Enty says "disappeared" or "can't get work" he means they haven't done anything respectable. Low budget, straight to DVD for the foreign market movies are excluded from legit work. Also, if you're producing your own crappy projects, it doesn't count the same as somebody else actually hiring you.
Which is why I think Seagal works here. Also, he already has a rep as a casting coucher.
But it could be someone else.

Definitely not Fraser. The fat comments would be unnecessarily mean, especially after he claimed to have been harassed and blacklisted.

Liv said...

So instead of advocating to change the system, your advice is to either play along like a nice girl or shut up.

My vote is to change the system. Sexual harassment has no place in ANY industry.



sysadmn said...

Thanks heavens we know it's not Travolta!

So Outrageous said...

Brendan Fraser is foreign-born, the blind doesn't say foreign-born. Plus I've heard from friends who have met him that he really is the nicest guy.

SillyWhabbit said...

Val Kilmer

Miz Malaprop said...

Why was Val Kilmer blacklisted in Hollywood?

I also don't understand how someone can be MADE to couch for an acting job in this Me Too era. You can walk away. There's a multi-million dollar, well publicized nonprofit in town for sexual harrassment. If she choses to couch her way into a gig, rather than lose the opportunity, then she made a choice. If violence or threats of blacklisting were involved, that's a different story, but there are offers you can refuse.

travis said...

Of all the names mentioned, Russell Crowe was without question A+ for a decade at least. Kilmer for a brief moment around "The Doors." Fraser? No. Seagal? Hell, no.

Sd Auntie said...

Brendan has been on the affair as a prison guard and may have another show coming up. His complaints were valid.

Aoife said...

I'd also like to know why Kilmer was black listed.

Tricia13 said...

He is.

Bill Beard said...

Steven Seagal.

shakey said...

Aoife, I think it was because for years he was such an asshole to everyone he worked with. Did you see Red Planet? Apparently all of his scenes were shot separately from everyone else. Not sure if he asked for that, or if people threatened to walk if he came near them (sorry, too lazy to google).

VDOVault said...

I seriously doubt it's Kilmer in Riptide.

Mira Sorvino is *also* cast as Kilmer's costar in Riptide & given her meteoric rise post #MeToo socially & politically speaking, she would have ZERO problem taking Kilmer down if the story is anywhere close to true (she's amazing at taking out chauvinists on Twitter).

Moreover Sorvino & Kilmer have worked together before ('At First Sight', came out in 1999, directed by Irwin Winkler). so if Kilmer were behaving that way, why would on earth she accept that role? She's not just a Harvard grad, she's also pretty street savvy & mature & doesn't suffer any bullshit gladly anymore.

As for Top Gun 2 that is Cruise & Jerry Bruckheimer's baby. Kilmer had to retract once publicly that he had gotten the role a few years back (2015/2016) so no I don't see where he would get a voice in casting, much less demanding anyone 'submit' to the casting couch.

Plus how does a 'blacklisted' (out of favor) actor get to demand anything (himself getting cast, a say in casting decisions, or pressuring someone else onto the casting couch?

This just doesn't fit.

VDOVault said...

@shakey The biggest problem child on the Red Planet set was Tom Sizemore & not Kilmer.

There was a physical altercation between Kilmer (one of the producers of the film) & Sizemore & to get the film done Sizemore's scenes & Kilmer's could not be shot together post fracas.

I also note that Sizemore has been taken down over credible allegations of committing child sexual abuse on a different film set (while the unit photographer was taking photos for the film's publicity stills, Sizemore had a very underaged female actress who was playing Sizemore's daughter seated on his lap and in view of the crew & other professionals committed a lewd act involving his fingers upon her). Sizemore has also had very serious substance addiction issues to deal with.

VDOVault said...

@So Outrageous +1

In fact Brendan Fraser has his own #MeToo story told (just disclosed within the past few months) so I also agree that Fraser does not fit this blind.
