Today's Blind Items

OK, this one could get confusing, and so I may need to make things more clear at a later point.

This involves two actresses and one actor as well as a dude. Not a dude as in Big Lebowski dude, but just a guy. He actually does things, but no one will know what he has done, so it is safe to call him a dude.

So, actor #1 who is a well known B list television star on a hit network drama was dating this major award winning B list actress (#2) who has been as successful in television as she has in films. They were dating for about a year, and things were going really well which made a nice change from her previous relationship which the world never stopped talking about. Anyway, she thought things were going well until her boyfriend hooked up with this B list actress (#3) who used to be A and is quickly dropping to C. This B list actress like someone last week is known for one role, and one role only. No matter what she does it will be this one role everyone remembers. #3 is also married which kind of complicates things. #2 got out when she heard about #1 and #3. #1 and #3 have kept their little thing going despite the marriage that #3 is in.

#2 is probably jennifer a

Kim's World said...

#3 is alicia silverstone she is known for either clueless or aerosmith video girl nothing else

HowToMakeMeSmile said...

i say jennifer aniston for #2 too

Get a Life said...

Jennifer A was successful in TV, not in films. All of her films have bombed at the box office - this has to be someone else.

Inger said...

Hmm. Why did I immediately think of Dominic Monaghan and Evangeline Lily? No idea who #3 is.

Kim's World said...

she still makes good money for the films thats why i was thinking her

kellygirl said...

#2 has got to be JA

#1 Jason Lewis ??

kellygirl said...

so is "the dude" #3 's hubby?

is like a stunt guy or director?

could it be kate beckinsale and her hub?

Unknown said...

a well known B list television star on a hit network drama was dating this major award winning B list actress

This does not describe anyone Jennifer A has dated for a year, does it?

Anonymous said...

knm, I would say that Jen A is closer to #3 (though not married) than #2. Not very successful in movies, but was on a successful tv show.

#3 - Pam Anderson? not sure she was ever A.

Wanted to say Alba for #2, but she's with Cash (nonactor)

MnGddess said...

God bless you all for trying to guess this. My head hurts just thinking about it. But I do not think its's Jen for actress #1; more likely for actress #3. Jen is A list quickly dropping to C. I think she is already C because I don't know anyone who cares about her as a film actress.

But can someone come up with the list of actresses? I'm stumped. Remember, actress #1 was an award winning B list actress, successful in TV as in film...

WriterMommy said...

Is it possible that #3 is Debra Messing? I really only know of her from "Will & Grace", she could have been considered A list while the show was in it's heyday, and she's been dropping off the face of the earth now. She's also married, I think.

Just my first thought.

Praetorian said...

I don't have a clue about #1 and #2, but I was thinking on Mira Sorvino for #3. Right now I can't only recall her role on Mighty Aphrodite (Awarded with an Oscar, hence the A list thing) But since she's not working that much lately, that would count for the "B list actress who used to be A and is quickly dropping to C" Thing.

Besides, her husband is pretty much a nobody, and he could be "The dude".

lyz said...

Not Jennifer A. She hasn't dated anyone for a year. She and Vince Vaughn broke up a long time ago and I'm not sure they dated a year.

And I agree with Get a Life...her movies have not done well.

lyz said...

another reason it's not Jen A....it says the boyfriend was on a hit network drama...she hasn't dated anyone on a hit network drama. She's been with models recently and Vince V isn't a network drama guy.

Unknown said...

This HAS to be Aniston - "major award winning B list actress (#2) who has been as successful in television as she has in films. They were dating for about a year, and things were going really well which made a nice change from her previous relationship which the world never stopped talking about."

Who else has had a relationship we're still talking about?

YahMoBThere said...

Am I the only one who needs a color coded chart for this?

Unknown said...

I mean, her films DO suck, but who else was in a relationship we're still talking about?

Praetorian said...

Twisted, I'm with you. I had to read the blind at least 3 times before I started to understand anything...

Can't be Aniston. She is not dating any tv star.

Unknown said...

#3 mena suvari / american beauty. married to the "dude"?

bookstalker said...

What major award has Jen won?

surfer said...

twisty, LOL!

Although it's probably not her, does anyone know who Katherine Heigl dated before marrying her husband? She's a major (Emmy) award winner, successful in TV and movies.

This is just too confusing. And where does the "dude" fit into all this?

Unknown said...

Didn't Jen win an Emmy for Rachel??

Plus - seriously - the real clue here is this line - "which made a nice change from her previous relationship which the world never stopped talking about."

Who could this be?? Forget the rest and think of who else had a relationship or breakup we're still talking about - and then we'll be on to something.

Unknown said...

I thought in ENT's world, Jennifer Anniston is A-List due to her salary (roughly $12 million a movie).

KS said...

Unknown said...

"where does the "dude" fit into all this?"

I'm assuming it's the husband.

KS said...

who was minnie driver dating recently?

the infamous relationship could be with matt damon and how people can not stop talking about how he broke up with her on oprah's couch

Unknown said...

Could the actress be Jennifer Garner? The infamous relationship being with Scott Foley or Michael Vartan? (grasping at straws here, but she has been suceessful on both TV and film)

GammaGirl said...

I have to echo the people who have ruled out Jen.
She did win a Golden Globe for her work on Friends, but her movies aren't hits.

I am intrigued by the Mena Suvari guess. She ditched that older guy a few years ago and was dating Jamie Kennedy last I read.

This is making my head spin.

lyz said...

"actor #1 who is a well known B list television star on a hit network drama was dating this major award winning B list actress (#2) who has been as successful in television as she has in films."

What B TV actor has dated a TV/Film actress for one year?

Let's come up with some couples that fit that criteria...

sillyme said...

I think it's Jennifer A. Remember when she was dating Bradley Cooper for a hot second, and he's a regular on Nip/Tuck? Then they abruptly split up.

sillyme said...

And the world never stopped talking about Jennifer A. and Vince Vaughan. Forgot to add that.

lyz said...

the BI says they were dating a year....

Pope-rah said...

for #3 what about Keri Russell who will always be known as "Felicity"

She got married last year...

sillyme said...

Yeah, you're right, Lyz! Forgot about that. It doesn't fit, does it? But it sure sounds like Jennifer A. to me.

D said...

I like the Jen Garner guess for some reason. With #3, for me it's down to Kate Beckinsale, Mena Suvari, and Mira Sorvino. Pam Anderson is already C list.

Unknown said...

Plus - who is known and always will be known for one role and one role only??

YahMoBThere said...

It doesn't say whether or not #2 went off and married someone else. Believe it or not, Rebecca Romijn won two awards for X-Men and with Ugly Betty, she's been successful in film. And people did talk about her relationship forever.

Unknown said...

1.
2. teri hatcher (awards, tv, Movies
3. mena suvari

GammaGirl said...

I'm not sure about Jennifer Garner. It says that actress is C list who is married and I think Ent would have noted that the first actress was married.
Christina Applegate popped into my head for some reason.
I'm brain farting on couples...

YahMoBThere said...

But what relationship of Teri Hatchers did people not stop talking about?

lyz said...

Well, Jen could be #2... She's TV/film. She did date Scott Foley for a long time and her break-up was talked about alot. He's strictly TV.

QUESTION: Is Jennifer Garner a "major award winner"? The #2 actress has to fit this criteria also....

GammaGirl said...

@ Twisted: OHHHH! I really like the Rebecca Romjin guess!

I'm having a really hard time thinking of any guys who would fit this. All the men that come to mind are on comedies.
I'm assuming our guy is on a network drama...

Unknown said...

No offense, but I think people's guesses are really off for this. ENT just told us that he thinks Eliza Dushku is a B-List actress.

YahMoBThere said...

(sniffle, sniffle)

Well, TomTyler, I'm taking my magic crayons and secret ballot guessing paper home and I'm not playing with you any more!

(sniffle, sniffle)

jax said...

why are we all being punished with no avatars because of one dude who hardly ever comes here??

sux!!!

Chris said...

I thought of Sarah Michelle Gellar, as the actress known for 1 role. Plus, she's married.

YahMoBThere said...

Jax, I mentioned that the other day. PISSES ME OFF that this was EL's response to the jag off, rather than finding a new home with better controls.

Anonymous said...

Alright, maybe we have to attack this like a Ted C blind: translate.
#1 - B-list, on current(?) hit NETWORK (ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC/CW) drama (CSI:XYZ,L&O:XYZ,Grey's, Bros&Sis, etc.). Dated...
#2 - major award winning (GG/Oscar/Emmy/maybe SAG?) successful tv/film B-List actress
#3 - Failing B-list known for 1 iconic role, actress married to nonfamous dude.

(Heigl's husband is a singer, not #3, and they've been in relationship for like 2 yrs, so she's not #2.)

I like writermomma's guess of Debra Messing for #3 - She was A-List TV since Will&G was on for 8 years, she's married to a screenwriter. which fits with - no one will know what he did, but he "actually does things." While The Starter Wife was popular, it's the only notable thing she's done since W&G.

Jennifer Garner has done enough movies where while she's probably still b-list, but she has a broad enough base that she's not known for one role (13 going on 30 made a lot of money from what I remember).

Keri Russell also has gotten a lot of press in the last year where she's flung off Felicity. (Waitress and August Rush, neither huge box office hits, but she got a LOT of notice for Waitress)

GammaGirl said...

I have to agree about switching to a different platform. I don't know if it's possible, but I would support a change.

Do we need to go over A vs B vs C list guesses again?

Unknown said...

Could it be "Pretty Woman" for #3? How did that movie do that she did with Tom Hanks that was just released?

She really can't open a movie by herself anymore...

It has been rumored her and Danny have not been doing so well for a while.

Maybe it doesn't fit but I thought of her immediately when I read the BI.

GammaGirl said...

@dnfrommn: thank you!
I like the Debra Messing Guess. Keri Russell fits, but she recently had a baby/I like her, so I hope she's not involved in this.
People definitely still talk about her relationship with Scott Speedman though...

YahMoBThere said...

Tomtyler, now that I'm done kidding, I think you're right.

Dnfrommn, honey, you're the best. Thanks for putting that together.

I'm liking the Debra Messingaround guess, too.

Unknown said...

Excel spread sheet on the way...

Anonymous said...

Could #2 be Mary-Louise Parker? Everybody couldn't stop talking about Billy Crudup dumping her when she was 7 months pregnant with his child. She is successful in tv/film and won a Tony award.

surfer said...

chris, I think Sarah Michelle Gellar is a great guess - mostly known for Buffy, and she is married.

dn - here's a question. Who says this situation is current? Ent has said before that for various reasons he may wait quite a while before posting blinds; so in essence, although this may not be old, it may not be current. Also, the reason I mentioned KH for #2, was that if this did take place a while back, it could possibly be before she hooked up with Josh.

surfer said...

@dn - I should have added that I don't really think it's KH at all. I just mentioned her because of her success in both film & TV and her Emmy win. I like the way you broke it down too.

Farm Girl Pink... said...

I read Major Award... I only think of Oscar. Is there a Oscar winning actress currently dating a actor on a hit drama?

cajunlady said...

I like the Mary Louise Parker guess for 2.

1. James Dean Morgan
2. Mary Louise Parker
3. ?????

Unknown said...

I think #3 is Sarah Michelle Geller. I'm clueless about the other 2.

Denis Stearns said...

#3 can't be Sarah Michelle Geller because her husband is Freddie Prinze

Brenda22 said...

#1. Jason Lewis ( he was on Sex and The city and on Brothers & Sisters recently...I know, it's a stretch)
#2. Jennifer Aniston (can't help thinking maybe the earlier post about her is related)
#3. Sarah Jessica Parker

I know...I'm really off but this is a tough one.

Brenda22 said...

How about Jessica Alba for #3?

Ent has more than hinted that she's already married. She is B list, used to be A and is quickly dropping to C because her last 3 movies have tanked. She was known to be Dark Angel.

kellygirl said...

guys, I'm pretty sure it's Anniston. At the top of the thread I said the guy was Jason Lewis. He is famous from Sex and the City and Bros and Sis.

Who else could it be with the clue - her former relationship that the world will never stop talking about.

catherine said...

if JA can't be #3. Then what about the other friends girls. Courtney Cox is supposedly having problems...and did Lisa Kudrow get divorced or what?

jax said...

Aniston was dating a cameraman after the english dude and before Jason lewis if i remember correctly.

catherine said...

it's jeffrey dean morgan and the problem is he isn't starring in anything anymore, both his part in weeds and grey's were short-lived. i liked the guess a lot.

Unknown said...

that mary louise parker guess is right on. she fits "major award winning B list actress (#2) who has been as successful in television as she has in films." she won a tony, currently stars in a weeds, and has been in tons of movies (fried green tomatoes, assassination of jesse james, etc).

she was dating jeffery dean morgan for one year (06-07). he is one grey's anatomy and thus fits the actor #1 ("well known B list television star on a hit network drama").

her prior relationship was with crudup who left her for claire. people still talk about that for sure.

debra messing still fits for actress (#3) but i am not sure how that would all fit... any ideas how jeffrey and debra would get together...?

Champaggles said...

When I read this it screamed Sarah Michelle Gellar to me for #3. I don't undertsand why she can't because Freddie is her husband. There are two persistant rumors about him a)gay b)likes to wear diapers and poo in them and have someone change him. Either way if I were her I'd see someone else too!

She is only, and will ever only be, known for Buffy. Heck she's stated in interviews fans come up to her and call her Buffy instead of Sarah.

I'm not sure about what guys she's been hanging around with. I've always thought something was going on with her and Seth Green. I've always thought it was weird they go out together sometimes. I suppose they could be just friends. I don't think he fits for the guy.

Then again there have been gay rumors about her as well. So I could be totally off base.

catherine said...

what's keifer sutherland's relationship status?

Champaggles said...

Oh and I almost forgot, a few weeks back Enty did a thing about would you consider SMG A list. If I recall he made an argument for her previously being A list for a TV star??? I must go back and see what he said. If she WAS she is totally falling fast into C. Her movies are duds. So much so she end up back on TV.

Rare Avis said...

Hey all. This is too tricky for me to guess. I have been in LA working my tail off... No good gossip here yet to share, just sore feet.

RandomRamblings said...

What awards has Jennifer Anison won? I can't think of any majors.

I'm going to take another approach.

#1--Michael Chiklis. Shield star on F/X, sister station to FOX network.

#2--Jessica Alba. Cash and Jessica were on the rocks and she decided to rebound on anyone that wore spandex and was on the Fantastic Four set.

#3--Sarah Michelle Gellar. She will always be known as Buffy, no matter how many trips she makes to the casting couch. #3 is married, so is Sarah. We all know that her marriage is publicity only (lots of good its done her career).

Brenda22 said...

Wait, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lisa Kudrow did a moview together (PS I love you). She's always gonna be Phoebe, no matter what she does and she's married. I'm changing my guess...

#1. Jeffrey Dean Morgan
#2. Mary Louise Parker
#3. Lisa Kudrow

catherine said...

i think the best thing to do is figure out #1. Not many hit dramas on a network channel. So let's list thos dramas...Lost, 24, House, Boston Legal, Grey's, Law and Order, CSI

notvotingforsuckno said...

Jeffrey Dean and Mary Louise got back together. This blind says the couple (1&2)split, but guy is still with chick he had an affair with (who is married). Since Jeff and Mary got back together (according to Kneepads,anyway), this blind doesn't fit them. She hasn't been all that successful in movies either. I initially thought it might be her, but I IMBD'd her and no dice.

Unknown said...

could three be Marissa Tomei? won an oscar, quickly dropping. is she married? she came to mind first.

Impertinent Vixen said...

#2 cannot be Aniston. She has done squat in movies. Plenty of relationships have been "talked about" besides hers. She's A-list television anyway and she has won no major awards that I can think of.

I think the Mary Louise Parker/Jeffrey Dean Morgan for 1 and 2 are right on. #3 is a mystery, though.

Impertinent Vixen said...

brenda22, I agree with Lisa Kudrow. It all fits. Her husband does something and can be called generic dude, she will always be know for Phoebe, she has not done much of merit lately...I think it's nailed!

curious_cailyn said...

I've GOT it! (Thanks to Jo-Anne, etc..!)

Actor (#1) is Jeffrey Dean Morgan -- "a B-list television star on a hit network drama" (Grey's Anatomy).

He was dating (#2) Mary Loiuse Parker -- a "major award-winning B-list actress who has been as successful in television as she has in films."

They starred as husband-and-wife on "Weeds" and dated for about a year (until late spring 2007). "It was a nice change from her previous relationship (with Billy Crudup!), which the world never stopped talking about."

THEN, Jeffrey hooked up with (#3) HILARY SWANK in 2006 while working together on "P.S. I Love You." Hilary definitely qualifies as a "married, B-list actress who used to be A and is quickly dropping to C," who is "known for one role, and one role only" - ("Boys Don't Cry!")

h, and the DUDE is her "manager-husband." ... Whattaya think??

YahMoBThere said...

But Hillary is no longer married, is she?

Brenda22 said...

Curious-cailyn

Don't think the last one is Swank. She's won 2 oscars (right?). Doesn't that make her at least a B lister for life? Plus, she was married to Chad Low but they've been done for a while now.

curious_cailyn said...

Oh crap -- didn't she marry that manager guy?? Ugh. If not, then I give up. :(

Good luck kids, I've got to get home before a major snowstorm hits!

YahMoBThere said...

Cailyn, IMDB has her status as 'filed for divorce' from Chad Lowe. Aren't they divorced yet?

It doesn't look like she's remarried - no.

OFF TOPIC - I hope everyone in a Super Tuesday state voted today.

To simplify, which are the year-long relationships that the world was talking about? Maybe we can start there and use the other clues to eliminate?

Brenda22 said...

I'm going to go vote after work. I'm in Cali so it's only 5:30 right now.

cajunlady said...

Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Lisa Kudrow did 2 movies together: P.S. I Love You and Kabluey.

Poey said...

I still think #2 is Jen Aniston. Didn't she win an Emmy? Plus, she might be considered B list by now, since her movies aren't doing great. Still, I think the movies have been successful enough... more than other TV stars who try to transition.

Then, #1 would probably be Jason Lewis (hit network drama = Sex and the CIty). It's possible she dated him quietly for longer than we thought, and I don't think they are together anymore...

No clue for #3.

becktaro said...

do premium channels (HBO, Showtime, etc) count as "networks"? Whenever I see this, I always assumed it meant the major networks, (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX...)

what about cable channels?

or does "network drama" really just mean TV show...?

deity2 said...

@becka...i think premium channels count as cable....meaning "cable" can show and do what network tv can not ( you know, ass, some soft sex and tits)......in other words....i feel so left out of the loop....my children have been soo sick for the past 2 weeks.....i have been able to look quickly and not post.....MY GUESS IS ASHTON KUTCHER for ALL 3!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, he is bipolar just like Britney!!!!

deity2 said...

about the Ashton guess......haa haaa ....i really am not always drunk...I promise!!!! I have a ? I need to ask some longtimers on this thread.......nothing personal for anyone (except me!!! actually I need advice from an outside forum).....I am on the precipice of separation (maybe???) and come from a strictly east coast kind of family!!!

deity2 said...

OK.....HOW DO YOU DELETE??? I AM DRUNK

YahMoBThere said...

Deity...there should be a trashcan under your post. Click on it, then click yes, you want your post deleted.

The Dude Abides said...

Wild guess:

#2 is Helen Hunt (she was with Hank Azaria before, but don't know if everyone was talking about it)

#3 is Sharon Stone

No idea on #1

Sean said...

i'm thinking #3 is sarah michelle gellar. she is married and will ALWAYS be buffy, no matter what.

Lux Luthor said...

Hang in there, Deity2. Things will get better.

Ugh, I feel like I need a chart to cope with all the variables in this BI. I can see SMG as #3 except the "used to be A and is quickly dropping to C" part is confusing. has SMG ever been considered A?

Jesus Christ, it's hard enough to put together all the clues without having to also factor in time. Like surfer pointed out way, way earlier in the thread, these BIs are not necessarily current.

Ugh. Is it too much to ask EL to add a time period for these BIs? As in "current," "within the past year" or "more than a year old"?

Michelle said...

If "dude" is #3's husband, I don't see how it can be SMG, since people know what FP has "done".

Lux Luthor said...

Hm. Excellent point, michelle. Back to the drawing board for me.

deity2 said...

thank you twisty & sso (shiny!!!)......if you are both or either married girls.......i have a ? thayt i need to talk about......not major life altering to you guys.....but..... yeh....i have sat here all night wondering what I am doing???!!?? I am a MOM.....i gave up my career when we found out we were having twins..........for 8 yrs I have sat here....while he lives HIS life!!!!! ......the reason why I am so ANGRY is that he asked me what I wanted to do when i grew up[!!!!????!! FHIM......I Am almost 40 ys old~!!!!

redgurl72 said...

He likes his diaper changed? Brilliant.
oooh I like SMG for #3. She is on the decline and will forever be Buffy.
Plus the line 'despite the marriage that #3 is in' makes me think it might not be a real marriage she is in.
I think Freddie Prinze Jnrs career has been so pathetic that he could easily be written off as just a dude.

The chick from American Beauty isn't married anymore. Sharon Stone isn't married and I thought Lisa Kudrow split from her husband?

#1 & #2 Screams Jen Anniston and someone who she managed to keep secret. Could be Jason Lewis since he's back in NYC filming SATC and SMG lives there.
Could I use anymore initials?

Unknown said...

@redgurl72 mena suvari is married with that "older" dude

Judi said...

Jason Lewis is not a well-known B list tv star by any stretch. SATC was a comedy, not a drama. #1 is someone else.
Something is making me think maybe Naveen Andrews and Barbara Hershey? But was she in a noteworthy previous relationship?
Or if #2 is Jen A. (though her lack of success in film doesn't really fit the clues), was Vince V. ever on a hit network drama?
Yes, Enty, could you make things clearer soon?

Amber said...

So is the dude #3's husband? Or another dude?

Liebez said...

#3 as sarah michelle gellar? shes married and no matter what she does she will ALWAYS be BUFFY

Sydney Fan said...

Whoa.... Jen A won an Emmy. I think the biggest clue is the relationship the world still talks about. Just throwing out ideas for what constitutes such a relationship Jen A an Brad yes; everyone got over the original Bennifer; Michelle and Heath I think will be such a relationship - but too soon for her; Hugh Grant and Devine Brown; Princess Di; really hard not many of them; Monica and Bill; just thought perhaps Winona and Johnny any suggestions just for this type of relationship? Then maybe it will fall into place.

Sydney Fan said...

Forgot Tom and Nicole!

Mikael said...

Major Award winning actresses that do television and movies:

Sally Fields
Glenn Close
Marlee Matlin
Holly Hunter
Geena Davis
Patty Duke
Anjelica Huston
Dianne Wiest
Marcia Gay Harden
Mary Steenburgen



There are a few others but they are either dead or too much older to really be considered unless this BI is a few decades ago.

As I was reading this BI Jen A. stood out to me as well..don't know who the others are.

captivagrl said...

visman - you can add Helen Hunt and Whoopi to your list.

schneefloeckli said...

Jennifer Aniston was one of the stars on Friends for 10 years, which is A++ list. She clearly doesn't fit #2 as her films aren't successful. The only thing that fits is the former relationship. So please stop guessing her for #2 when she clearly doesn't fit 2/3 of the clues.

Mikael said...

Thanks captivagrl, I considered them and ruled them out but you are correct that they probably should be added. I ony ruled them out because I was thinking they did tv comedies but I could be wrong.

Faye Dunaway and Tatum O'Neal also have done both but not sure if we count minor networks TNT etc..


of the list which might not include our actress, Sally, Geena, Tatum and Whoopie certainly had relationships that we all talked about. I don't think Tatum is known as sucessful on TV so she may be out of the running. If major award winning could be one emmy or one golden globe then that opens up the prospect enormously.

Sydney Fan said...

Overnight I thought of Whoopi, that Ted Danson thing is always cming up. She talks on The View of having a guy but as never mentioned his name. Does anyone know who he is and therefore if he is in a TV drama?

Unknown said...

My guesses are:
#1 is Jason Lewis - famous actor - dated Jennifer Aniston for a year - starred on Brothers and Sisters for 7 episodes
# 2 is Jennifer Aniston - the award-winning actress who has had successes in TV and film with the notorious relationship people are still talking about
#3 is Debra Messing - the actress who is only known for one role (Grace from Will & Grace) and will always only be known for that one role no matter what she does

curious_cailyn said...

That's not a bad guess, Janele... My only problem is that most "reports" only had Jason and Jennifer dating for a few weeks (at the end of 2007/early 2008) - and Jennifer's camp even denied that! ...There's just no way that J.A. could date ANYBODY for a YEAR without people/the media knowing about it, so I just don't think she's involved in this BI. (Besides, if Ent ranks Eliza Dushku as "B-list," then Jennifer is definitely be "A-list.")

This one is really hard!!!

Mikael said...

Ted Danson is married to Mary Steenburgen.

I think it takes alot of work to twist JA into the clues.

Sydney Fan said...

So are you saying if Whoopi is going out with a guy on a TV drama it could be her? I think itis easier to twist JA into it. I really think that in view of her pap hounding over the past few yesrs (as opposed to her pap smears) she would now hide a romance through the courtship/wedding/births and divorce. So if she went out with Jason Lewis sounds right as she has had the most 'world talked about' romance on the planet. Debra Messing fits been married to somene she has been with for about 17 years and you get real bored after 17 years. So JA, JL, DM and whoever she is married to.

Mikael said...

Doesn't major award winning and as successful in film as she was in television indicate that if she won awards they would be for both television and film??? JA and JL did not date for a year and JL is virtually unknown to masses.

wow! I love the Mary Louise Parker & Dean whoever guess. Also for #3 I think Julia Roberts is totally wellk-known as the Pretty Woman now matter what, even with that Erin Brokovich Oscar win. Another person who could be described as A list falling to C list is Marisa Tomei, forever known only for the My Cousin Vinny role that got her an Oscar. Don't think she's married though.
fyi Mena Suvari is no longer married, but maybe she was when this BI was happening.
Don't know that Jenna Elfman was ever A list at her TV height, but she will always be Dharma.
That's all I got, nothing new.

Convinced now that it isn't JA I did some checking and Mary Louise Parker and Jeffery Dean Morgan fit the blind. They dated for about 6 months broke up reconciled and are rumoured to still be together. She has a golden globe and is equally successful in film and TV. He does have quite a few movies coming out though. Her romance with Billy Cruddup will never be forgotten particularly as she has the child of that union. Didn;t she also recently adopt? That's the sort of thing you do when a relationship turns to shit.

#3 Sarah Jessica Parker? I think she's very definitively "only Carrie," and she's also married.

Definitely Jeffrey Dean Morgan, poor Mary-Louise Parker and Lisa Kudrow. Lisa Kudrow = once definitely A for Friends, now has practically fallen off the face of the earth, will always and forever be known as Phoebe, is married to a "dude" (an advertising executive) AND starred in TWO films with JDM in the last couple years (PS I Love You and Kabluey). She fits it all.

"Guesser:" EXECELLENT guess!! I gave up on the Jeffrey Dean Morgan/Mary-Louise Parker angle after realizing that Hilary Swank hadn't actually married her current "dude"/agent/boyfriend. (Hilary starred in "PS I Love you," too, so she was my original guess for #3!) ... But Lisa Kudrow is a MUCH better guess!!

The ONLY (possible) hitch is that Lisa Kudrow has been the most successful "Friend" film-careerwise - So it's hard to see her as a soon-to-be "C" actress... Realistically, though, she's ALWAYS gonna be "Phoebe!"

Also, there are long-standing rumors that her French-dude-banker hubby repeatedly hit on Jennifer and Courtney, which is why they didn't socialize as much with Lisa... So that marriage may be less than-ideal.

My love-triangle vote goes to: Jeffrey Dean Morgan/ Mary-Louise Parker/ Lisa Kudrow!

I'm in the #3 is SMG camp because of the Buffy thing.

The BI says "He actually does things, but no one will know what he has done". That fits Freddie because who really knows what he's done? I'm sure the occasional fan girl or two can tell you all about his career but I doubt the average person knows who he is even except in relation to his dad.

As for SMG ever being "A" list... she kind of was for a brief moment which is why she ditched Buffy to try and leap into the "big time" but she missed and is falling fast.

Plus there were old BIs about a star TV actress forcing her male co-stars to party with her to the point that it broke up one of them's marriage to a woman he'd moved out to Hollywood with him. It was decided that it was SMG & David Boreanaz because his situation fit and there were pictures of them out on the town.

I could totally see her doing this.

Update, as of 4/9/2008

Mary Louise Parker and Jeffrey Dean Morgan have officially called off their engagement, according to a "source" and the explanation of "differing lifestyles" is being offered up. I thought of this blind immediately when I saw it. I think they've likely been split for a while, and it only just leaked.
