Today's Blind Items

#1 - I actually thought this actress already had the herp. Guess I was wrong. It happens. This week, this C list actress who used to be B list and on a hit network show now canceled, with some B+ name recognition filled her first prescription for Valtrex. Not that anyone should ever even contemplate having unprotected sex with her anyway.

#2 - How do I describe this guy? B list actor with a name that seems to cause some confusion. Very little television. Nope this guy is all about films. Big films, Top grossing films, independent films. Great actor but also underrated. Award winning but nothing big. On the set of his newest film he had a little thing going with a co-star. Nothing too blind-itemish about that. The co-star is married so that adds a little spice, but what really makes it blind worthy is the fact that this married B+ list co-star with A name recognition is a guy.

Mischa Barton for the 1st, have to think about the 2nd.

jw12 said...

What is Will Smith filming right now?

jw12 said...

Scratch Will Smith b/c he's A list

littlemanwhatnow said...

Billy Crudup is filming public enemies with christian bale...maybe?


mischa is good guess...i think you nailed that

j97 said...

Could #2 be Liev Schreiber and Hugh Jackman during the filming of the latest Wolverine film? Not sure if Liev has actually been in any top grossing films, though.

littlemanwhatnow said...

Barry Pepper? will smith?

Maddie said...

What about Ewan McGregor for 2? Pretty much all films, Star Wars, "Big" Fish, got his break in Trainspotting. IMDB has him for an episode of ER back in the 90s- so some TV. Has a few things filming but I don't feel like going through to see who the B+ costar could be.

gossiphound said...

what about dermot mulroney and dylan mcdermott? their names get confused all the time?

mischa barton for #1

Unknown said...

Liev Schreiber has been in several top-grossing films, namely the first two Scream films, but I think The Manchurian Candidate and The Sum of All Fears also did well. He's a good guess! (and he's worked with Hugh Jackman twice, hmmmm)

marie said...

shia lebeouf for #2??? his name causes some confusion here in france (first name sounds like 'shit' in the past tense, last name means 'the ox'), but i don't know if it does in english. and he seems to fit the description (except i don't know if ent likes him - he describes the actor in the blind as being 'underrated'). as for the B+ co-star, i have no idea! wild guess anyway.

Sinjin said...

When I got to the last sentence of Blind #2 I actually mentally thought "Ho-leeee Shit!" Totally got blindsided on that one. Heh. Guess I'm not that jaded yet.

Tinydancer said...

For #2, how about Gael Garcia Bernal with Mark Ruffalo in "Blindness" set to release this year. GGB is also in post production on a movie with Bill Murray.

Reverend Ramona said...

#1 - Jodie Sweetin

#2 - Steve Buscemi

Unknown said...

This is incredibly off topic, and I'm sure its been mentioned in the comments in the past couple of days, but I have not been able to check the site for awhile...

anyway. Anyone see the Perez post a couple of days ago about the slew of hospital workers that are potentially being sued for med record leaks? There was mention of a star who has HIV.... made me think of the bi from a few months ago of the pop star with AIDS... Paula Abdul was mentioned...

This all may be old news to everyone and if so, I apologize. I just found it interesting!

lutefisk said...

Shia was in Disney's "Even Stevens" show--that would count for TV--can't be him.

CarolMR said...

Steve Buscemi is a good guess, but he was on the SOPRANOS.

catherine said...

shannon dohetry could be number 1- she was married to rick solomen who has herpes, also think there was a blind somewhere about her being a high priced escort now. Christie- i read that too. the only thing that suprises me is that the people that looked up the records havent anonymously leaked the info, even to friends.

mickey said...

Could #1 be Courtney Cox? She's not as famous as Jennifer Aniston but she's known for Friends, her show Dirt just got cancelled, and there's always rumors of her never being with David Arquette and getting with other guys.

No clue on #2

ykkstuck said...

STeve Buschemi is a pretty good guess for #2 - currently doing voice work for G-Force (with Nic Cage B+ w/ A name recognition)but Steve has done a fair amount of TV.

I'd say Mischa for #1 too.

janele said...

#2: Keanu Reeves & Alan Arkin

Reese said...

Adrien Brody came to mind for #2. Like the Mischa guess for #1.

Anonymous said...

If Gael Garcia Bernal is getting it on with a guy it's Diego Luna, but I think both are having babies with their girlfriends.

I agree w/ the Mischa guess for #1.

#2 - Liev is a good guess, but he and Naomi Watts really seem to be in love. No other guess though.

CB said...

I'm thinking Phillip Seymor Hoffman for #2.

Ellen said...

janele's comment made me smile...

Thanks janele!

califblondy said...

Paula has AIDS? Did she get it from Arsenio? Didn't they use to date?

Anonymous said...

#2 - Johnny Depp and Christian Bale?

Besides 21 Jump Street and a tv movie, Johnny has no other tv credits. Wide variety of films, award winning for MTV movie awards not Oscars, etc.

Christian Bale is married and is with the Batman credits, pretty well known.

brainypirate said...

Can't be Hoffman or A. Brody -- they have pretty big awards.

I'd jump on the Bernal-Murray bandwagon just because it's too amusing -- even though Murray isn't really married anymore....

It's an even jucier guess than Keanu & Arkin! LOL

OG Gossipmonger said...

mischa is c-list, used to be b list?
really? i thought she was the subject of the blind about the actress who has moved out of the country because shes so washed up here...
not that i have any guesses of my own.......

jw12 said...

What?? Are you sure it's not Ben Affleck?

Michael Strangeways said...

It has to be Gyllenhaal (name causes confusion) who is currently filming Nailed with James Marsden (married, cute, a bit of a gay face, but hardly a B+ level actor; more of a B- at best) and recently finished filming Brothers with Tobey Maguire (also married, but not that gay, but definitely kind of B+).

If true, it seems that Kirsten Dunst causes men to go gay after dating her...

lutefisk said...

What? No one guessed Keanu or Jeremy Piven? We have a Steve Buscemi & a Ben Affleck, I didn't think there were any other's that could fit just about every blind out there!

Unknown said...

I immediately thought Joaquin Phoenix because of the name-confusion part... but no one in the cast of Two Lovers seems to fit for the co-star.

One Stop Insanity said...

Barton for the first.

#2_ John Travolta used to be on tv. But is name isn't confusing. Could he be the married costar though? I think he's filming.

OG Gossipmonger said...

jw12 - you know, you might have something there!!!

jw12 said...

tee hee

WineGirl X said...

#2 - Robert Downey Jr.

GriffinsMum said...

Viggo Mortenson and Sly Stallone! They're filming a film called Poe right now.... And VM's name is "confusing", I suppose and not a TV actor at all.

Unknown said...

So, michael strangeways, does that mean Ryan Gosling is the next since that is Kirsten's latest fling?? Nothing would surprise me.

Unknown said...

#2 John Hurt? I used to always get him mixed up with John Heard (or even William Hurt, who resembles John Heard appearance-wise, to add to the confusion).

Very little TV, many, many movies, many awards, and underrated considering his resume.

Amy said...

OT, and it may have already been discussed somewhere else on here and I've missed it...

Talk of the herp reminded me. I thought the whole time Jessica Alba was pregnant lots of people were saying watch for her to have a c-section since she has herpes. In the news of the birth it seems it has been mentioned a few times she did things "naturally" and that her dad was in the room...which 1. I think is weird 2. I don't think they let happen in a c-section/surgery scenerio. What gives?

Unknown said...

1. Lucy Liu
2. Gyllenhal

Unknown said...

Reese is top photo - possible clue thrown in?

Anonymous said...

Billy Crudrup(sp) for #2?

c17 said...

Nooooooooooo! Gossiphound, that's what my first thought was - and I looooove Dermot Mulroney! He's mine!

Anyways, yeah. Got no guess for #1 - throw a rock & see who it hits. Any of them I'd guess.

Mel-Tang said...

I think the first is Pamela Anderson.
The description fits her perfectly.

CEP said...

Yeah... Pam Anderson or Carmen Electra

Miss X said...

My first thought was Joaquin. So I checked IMDB. The only actor that could come close to fitting our A-lister is Robert Duvall.

Seeing as how Duvall is 77, this seems like an unlikely match.

PotPourri said...

OK, if you have an Academy Award or have been nominated for one, you are A List. Can we put that to rest? Especially, all the Travolta/Phoenix guesses.

I first read it and agree that it is Dermot Mulroney and Dylan McDermott. Both are currently getting divorces. I think Dermot's may already be in the bag. Dylan is on TV right now, and Mulroney, I don't think has ever been on TV.

To me, it is Dermot Mulroney. He's been in both independent and top grossing films.

PotPourri said...

Dermot Mulroney is filming a movie with Greg Kinnear now called Flash of Genius.

Unknown said...

LOL JW12! I'm with YOU!

I have no guesses, but that second one is pretty juicy, eh?

OK, still on topic, but a bit off topic. I learned this little tidbit at work, since our spa offers 'medical' services. (Just a nice way of saying they do injectables), and if the patient is prone to cold sores (in the herpes family), chances are they'll develop them at the injection sites. Hence, you need to take Valtrex for a few days prior to the procedure, as this helps avoid an outbreak. Now, we're always hearing of women getting these prescriptions (not that the guys don't get those kind of treatment though, judging by the way Brad Pitt's looks are ebbing and flowing), but isn't it possible that these girls are just avoiding a huge cold sore after getting their lips plumped up? I know, I know, not nearly as much fun as believing that they're all heathens swapping bodily fluids, but a possibility, non?

:D

Jewels,

There was a report yesterday that 1 in 4 people in NYC have herpes.

Thank god I left the city or I could have been one of those sluts. Not that I was a slut..... Fuck it, who am I kidding??

captivagrl said...

Kieran Culkin(huge films, blockbusters and indie) and Matthew Broderick....film: Margaret...it's possible that Culkin deals with name confusion because people mix up all the brothers?

marissa said...

#2 is KEVIN SPACEY
get it confused spacey

Miss X said...

Captivagirl, I like your guess. Broderick really sends out a gay vibe.

Marissa, isn't it a well known fact that Spacey is gay? He isn't married, definitely an A-lister and appreciated. I don't see him fitting the description of either actor.

Unknown said...

I am going to throw a comment out there and say Ioan Gruffyd, (maybe i am completely off base) is currently filming "w", here is the cast list.

Josh Brolin ... George W. Bush
Elizabeth Banks ... Laura Bush
Jesse Bradford ... Thatcher
Ioan Gruffudd ... Tony Blair
Thandie Newton ... Condoleezza Rice
Richard Dreyfuss ... Dick Cheney
Scott Glenn ... Donald Rumsfeld
Ellen Burstyn ... Barbara Bush
James Cromwell ... George Herbert Walker Bush
Noah Wyle ... Don Evans (rumored)
Jason Ritter ... Jeb Bush (rumored)
Rob Corddry ... Ari Fleischer
Jeffrey Wright ... General Colin Powell
Toby Jones ... Karl Rove
Randal Reeder ... Oilrig forman
Michael Gaston ... General Tommy Franks
Paul Rae ... Kent Hance

Unknown said...

1 in 4? 1 in flipping 4?!?
That's mind boggling.

*shudders*

Jazz Hands said...

jewels, I have to agree about the Valtrex thing... It works on cold sores, too, and we all know what happens when celebs [cough, Katie Holmes, cough] get a cold sore. People react like it's time to lock them up. Can't have that.

(Pardon my continued rant, but...) Yes, Paris and every other 20-something celebrity are whores. But do we have to celebrate them contracting a chronic illness? Let's hope it's just a cold sore. Come on, people. Come on.

Anonymous said...

#1-? How about really shocking us with a BI about who DOESN'T have herpes in Hollywood.

#2-I'm going with Shia and John Hurt. Both filming NY I love you.

And I bet they have herpes, too.

Unknown said...

1- don't know - could be anybody really

2- Gael Garcia Bernal

One Stop Insanity said...

i thought she was the subject of the blind about the actress who has moved out of the country because shes so washed up here...


Sounds more like Tara Reid going to Australia for work.

sauvage said...

What about the names of Johnny Depp or Christian Bale would be confusing? Read the blind first, people.

My guess is that we are talking about someone who has a name that sounds very much alike the name of another actor. Not that I could think about an example right now.

MnGddess said...

#2 Not Ioan! He's done a lot of TV, especially in Britain.

boobsu said...

Sara- a cold sore is herpes and you can contract it down there if someone has an outbreak on their mouth.

Mel-Tang said...

I think #2 is Benicio del Toro. He is on the "B" list because of his name. He has been in many good films, as well as some independent. I'm not sure about the awards part, but he just made a movie with Rodrigo Santoro (Brazilian actor on "300"). I also don't know if Santoro is married or not.
But Benicio's name can be a bit confusing, unless you are from Italy. :)

blossom6673 said...

No guess for #1, but what about James Caviezel for #2? Only 3 TV credits, and in more big movies than I thought (Wyatt Earp, The Rock, Pay It Forward), won 2 awards and figure possible B recognition for Passion of the Christ. Just finished filming Outlander with John Hurt...

Impertinent Vixen said...

I like the Gael Garcia Bernal guess for #2. The name is feminine sounding and the other details fit. Somehow I think Shia is too young and has not been in enough movies, and Liev Schreiber would have been described differently, as in with a famous partner and with a new kid.

James Caviezel is so devoutly Catholic, I can't see this being him, without ENT having mentioned something about going against his religious beliefs in the blind.

Anonymous said...

Jake Gyllenhall and James Marsden sound like a good guess, I was always confused as to how to pronounce Jake's name or spell it for that matter.

James has had success in X-Men, Hairspray etc.. but I don't get A name recognition with him, more people might not know his name but would def recognise his face.

I would think people would get James Marsden mixed up with James Masters. In terms of names.

JM said...

>>I would think people would get
>>James Marsden mixed up with James
>>Masters. In terms of names.

You mean James Marsters?

Joanna said...

mel-tang - would be a good guess, except that del Toro has won an Academy Award, putting him on the A list (A- at best due to Ent's standards).

I always get Marsden and Marsters mixed up. Argh. Problem is that I would think he would be the first guy - confusing name, so underrated IMHO. But I have no idea who the second would be. Gyllenhaal would be A list (Oscar nomination, people!), and he's not married. :\

Joanna said...

Ok, throwing it out there:
John Leguizamo with Mark Wahlberg. Although I can't find confirmation or not if Wahlberg is married.

Kerri said...

#2 is Gerard Butler, I know this because I have suspected he's gay or bi for a while. He is a solid B list, his name is Gerard pronounced like "Jared", Gerry is his nick-name; people don't know what to call the man. He's done big films, top grossing films like 300, he's done smaller films, and independents. He did a little TV in England at the beginning of his career. He's won some small awards. Everything fits like a glove.

He also dates strange women, gay men that I've know that were in the closet and trying to cover it up dated very strong, almost masculine women. That is Gerry's M.O. Check it out and let me know what you all think.

As for his buddy? No idea, but he has a lot of films in the pipeline, so many men to choose from.
