Blind Items Revealed

December 12, 2008


#1 - This guy is an A list television star and probably B in films he has done. Probably not any higher than B list on name recognition though. Oh, he stars in one of those crime dramas. Anyway, for the past year he has just had his paychecks sent to directly to various charities in the city where he films his show.

#2 - I guess this actor is considered an A list television actor although honestly, it is just the name of the show everyone remembers. Anyway, our actor spends about 5 hours a week every week at local hospitals reading to kids who are there and playing games with them.

#3 - This actress is B list. Hit network drama which I refuse to watch. Totally in contrast with her earlier more famous television role, this actress has a big soft spot. Over the past few years she has arranged for about 20 disadvantaged kids to go to private schools. She pays for all the books, uniforms and tuition. It costs her about $200,000 a year.

#4 - This actress is also B list probably by definition but has A list name recognition. She is also on a hit network comedy. She and her boyfriend have contributed many tens of thousands of dollars to various food banks and other food programs and spend countless hours volunteering at them as well.

#1 - Normally, I reveal all of the kindness items. However, in the case of #1, it is really important to him to remain anonymous. So it shall be.
#2 - Michael C. Hall
#3 - Marcia Cross
#4 - America Fererra

Is 1 Gary Sinese?

Unknown said...

Yet one more reason why i want to bear Michael C Hall's children.

Alec Baldwin for #1

ms snarky said...

Alec Baldwin? crime drama?

farmgirl said...

As if I needed ANOTHER reason to love Michael C. Hall!!! Come closer, let me give him a big squdge!
The America Fererra thing is really cool since all of her $$ is new, and there is no telling when that gravy train will end.
Marcia Cross - still hard to like, but I can def appreciate the effort.
As for #1 - I respect him even more for remaining anonymous.
Must be nice to be able to part with that kind of dough.
I think it could be Sam Waterston.

ms snarky said...

I think at the time of the blind, the consensus of opinion was gary sinise.

KellyLynn said...

I remember someone snarking about America Ferrera being uppity, but the #4 reveal makes me think she's really as down-to-earth as she seems.

The rest of these are all also great. There are plenty of us who say we would do these sorts of things if we had more money or time. It's great to know that there are people who actually go through with the kindness.

Vis, Alec has been the reveal to a couple of negative BI's today. I think if it was him Enty would have mentioned the contrast in his behavior.

ms snarky said...

sam waterston is a great guess, too. he's pretty active in social causes, I think. nice.

MadLyb said...

I loves me some Michael C. Hall, and certainly remember his name, since he has been my favorite character in his last two cable shows. America Fererra can do no wrong. I knew Marcia Cross was a classy lady.

David D. said...

I think it's remarkable--and laudable--that so many performers are this generous (with both money and time) to charities and causes once they achieve their success. It's even more amazing that so few of them feel the need to boast about it or use it as part of their ongoing publicity campaigns.

ms snarky said...

it can't be alec baldwin, he's not the star of a crime drama. unless 30 Rock is moving in a new direction!

Unknown said...

The second one made my day. I'm a huge fan of 6FU and Dexter, so I loved reading this about Michael C. Hall.

lmnop123 said...

David D. I agree. It is so nice to find out a celeb's pleasant secret act of kindness instead of their nasty habits/behavior.

This is a nice way to start off the new year.

FrenchGirl said...

i love every one more!

Ms. said...

I thought Vis was making a Ben Afleck type joke

farmgirl said...

ms. snarky
your bunny rocks.

BlahFrickinBlah said...

I'm still on the Gary Sinese wagon for number 1. Very sweet.

I LURV Michael C Hall. Six Feet Under and Dexter are two of my all time favorite shows. Very talented.

I wouldn't have thought Marcia Cross for 3 but that is amazing. Very cool. That is life changing stuff.

ms snarky said...

ms. - duh! I am so slow! :)

farmgirl - thanks!

libby said...

I have to say, that all the (admittedly meager) Gary Sinese gossip I ever heard is that Gary is super low-key, extra extra extra nice guy.
One of my sources is someone who waited on him.
I myself was a waitress for 16 years,and I will say that you can tell a lot about anyone's character by how they treat waiters. And I'm not talking about the tip, I'm talking about behaviors.

Unknown said...

Ms. that was my impression as well ;)

I'm on the Gary Sinese wagon for #1.

Honestly? I didn't think Marcia Cross had it in her, but that's awesome!

I think its wonderful that these people can find it in their hearts to share of themselves, their time, and their earnings, to help brighten other people's lives.

Ms gets me, she gets me so much.


It's actually Fred Thompson.

farmgirl said...

Maybe it's Mr. Magoo

ItsJustMe said...

I am really loving the kindness reveals. :)

libby said...

I looked on IMBD, and Los Angeles is listed first in the "filming locations" section about "CSI:NY," and New York is listed last.

Law & Order is exclusively New York, except a few stunt crossover NBC cop show things, yes?

So it would make more sense that Ent might know Gary Sinise** or one of his close friends to get that info. Easier to get it in L.A. for Ent, that's all I'm sayin.'

**Am I ever spelling his name correctly? I look like a real rube.

d said...

I think Fred Thompson is a great guess for this one.

MadLyb said...

I'm on the Gary Sinise bandwagon. He seems like a sweet person.

Ms. said...

Fred Thompson isn't on a show anymore, is he? He left to run for office and I don't recall seeing him again on Law & Order.

Ms. said...

@ Vis
Yes, babe, I get you.

And I think we found 2009's Ben Afleck.

libby said...

You are correct, Ms. If Fred Thompson hadn't already left the show a few years ago, he would have been forced to, as he was running for president.

He's just a terrible actor. IMO

Molly said...

vis, ms snarky would have gotten you, too, but today we get ms hungover snarky....lol.

i love these people for giving back. everybody should. if you don't, make it a goal for '09.

Rhianna said...

I was going to guess William Patterson from CSI. I can't really think of any movies he's done, but he's so totally Grissom in my mind that I'm probably missing the obvious ones.

Either way, thanks for all the kindness reveals Ent. I'll even make a point of stomaching some people I don't really care for in 2009, to support good people who do good things. :)

Hervana said...

I like your little picture BlahfrickinBlah.

Jasmine said...

it hurt me to see that michael c. hall was one of the reveals. i love him too much (almost like the crazy michael jackson stalker fan who insists her name is billy jean) and wanted to seperate my love from him and now its just not possible.
jesus- what are you trying to do to a girl, enty? i am now that much closer to finding out where he lives and sleeping on his porch at night. lol

Jasmine said...

micheal c. hall btw, NOT michael jackson. just so we have that straight.

Unknown said...

I TOLD YOU IT WAS MICHAEL C HALL !!

ERNESTINE FOUGHT ME ALL THE WAY!!


ADMIT IT NOW ERNESTINE,

I WAS RIGHT!!

*happy dance*
