Today's Blind Items

This B- list television actor is one of the leads on a big hit network drama. One of those police type shows. Our actor has not shown up on set for almost two weeks. It isn't about contracts or anything like that. Nope. It is because he is on the drug bender to end all benders and won't stop using. Producers are getting worried because they need him on set and functioning soon or they are going to have some huge story gaps that will need explaining.

Jeremy Sisto.

George Eads, because wasn't he fired/rehired from CSI, thus the "isn't about contracts" thing?

BTW, I didn't know Eddie Cibrian was becoming a CSI:Miami regular. There's one more reason not to watch it.

Ed said...

I was thinking David Caruso

Nikki said...

no idea but great blind enty - good candidate for a reveal!!!

Karmen said...

Since Enty didn't say "initial show", CSI, NCIS, Law & Order: SVU or CSI are going to be my last resort.

My guess: Simon Baker from The Mentalist (really good ratings last season).

whole_lotto _luv said...

Karmen, I know I wanna be right and all, but Simon Baker isn't one of the leads -- he is THE lead -- on The Mentalist.

Pants said...

I did some coke mom investigating. Back in April Enty said that she was NOT in the pictures posted over the week prior to that specific post. Tori Spelling, Jennie Garth, Courteney Cox were all in the posts that week prior, so none of them can be coke mom. Then, earlier this month, he said that coke mom was posted the week prior to the post where he said that. Debra Messing was in the posts. She is the only one of the major guesses that didn't appear when he said coke mom didn't appear, and did appear when he said coke mom did appear. That's my two cents!

Pants said...

By the way, totally off topic, I know! I was just so excited about my detective work I couldn't wait for another coke mom update :)

Karmen said...

whole_lotta_luv - that was my thought, too, but I didn't think any of the other leads were B-list TV actors.

Pants - Exactly. And the day before he posted the BI about the two coke moms doing coke openly at an event, there were a bunch of pictures of Debra Messing and Angie Harmon(who fits the description perfectly of the other Coke Mom): http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3749546752/nm0004990

It's soo Debra Messing.

diatribes and dish said...

I don't know if I'd call Southland a hit network drama, but it's definitely a police-type show, and Ben McKenzie (the guy from the OC, I think that's his name) is probably B- list.

Charlotte said...

Ben McKenzie was just at a charity event to promote children and reading though. Doubt it's him.

surfer said...

My first thought was Tom Everett Scott from Southland, but I think he was killed off at the end of last season. Other than that, I'm drawing a blank.

Anonymous said...

I'd say David Caruso.

Simon Baker was just on The View last week and didn't seem out of it.

Sisto has a newborn, so I hope it isn't him.

*Miss_P* said...

Wasn't there a blind about a foreign-born actor at fashion week that no one would sit next to because he was on a massive bender? Could this be the same guy?

Stephanie said...

What about Vincent D'Onofrio from Law & Order Criminal Intent, I know a story was released earlier this week that stated he may not return to Law & Order next season, and I know he has a past problem with drugs/mental illness. Now would be the time to start "cast MAY be leaving" rumors if he's on a drug bender and they may need to explain some gaps in story line.

Dijea said...

My first thought - David Caruso. But I don't watch CSI, NCIS, Law & Order. What a dipsh*t!

amazonblue said...

My thought was Anthony Anderson, Jeremy Sisto's partner from the original L&O.

L&O Criminal Intent is on hiatus. I read over the weekend that they're going to revamp the show around Jeff Goldblum since it's now a USA show and Monk is ending. They are releasing Vincent D'onfrio and Kathyrn Erbe and Julianne Nicholson already left last season.

Paisley said...

One of the guys from Cold Case? I think Karmen is onto something with this being referred to as a police vs. initial show.

Sean said...

Richard Belzer

shazzzba said...

VINCENT D'ONOFRIO ....HAS BEEN DROPPED GOING FORWARD, I READ IT OVER THE WEEKEND SOMEWHERE...BUT HOW THEY END HIS CHARACTER IS ANOTHER STORY...

C said...

Wasn't this a blind by Enty

At this point I'm confused why Rachel Bilson is even famous. She is averaging like one movie a year.

Harriet Hellfire said...

I thought David Caruso as well...

Caroline said...

I am really bummed about Vincent D'Onofrio. He is my favorite pretend boyfriend.

Karmen said...

C - I noticed that, too. Probably a hint to a blind a few weeks ago:

Megan said...

what about Joshua Jackson on Fringe....

Cecilia00 said...

Coke Mom continues to fascinate.

Enty can't reveal her because of legalities - but maybe he can find some clever way to reveal her to us and skirt around the legal issue??

Maybe for for reveal day he can go all Ted C. and do a "Coke Mom is NOT" list??

sunnyside1213 said...

Yes, Coke Mom is NOT list. I am on that train. It's got to be Messing.

Barton Fink said...

Caroline, I find myself fighting with people on the internet over these stars a lot, so I'll back off. But I want Vincent D'Onofrio, too. His slouchy shambling walk, his goofy faces, his excitability -- there is something really seductive about him. I hope he's ok, whatever's going on with him. (Ok, you can have him. I'll go back to Shemar.)

Quintessential Southerner said...

criminal intent is not huge in the ratings nor is it on network tv.

simon baker ftw. he's B-.

Linda said...

I'm thinking the guy from Criminal Minds - Michael Gubler? Is that his name? Skinny skinny heroin look to him. Probably isn't B list if I can't even think of his name, though :)

Tammy said...

I hope it's not D'Onofrio, but that's my guess.

Caroline said...

The character VIncent D'Onofrio created on L&O is one of the most compelling on TV - sad to see it go, and even sadder if this blind is about him.

Anonymous said...

Bones fits the show criteria - big hit, network drama, police type show, no initials.

hollase said...

I'm not sure he is B list, but what about the guy who plays Rigsby on The Mentalist? He has lost a ton of weight between seasons. Even my hubby (the guy who would think a corpse was just sleeping) thinks he is on something. And if you want to compare it to previous blinds, he is foreign born (Welsh) and married into a famous family (his wife is on the Office).

Even if he doesn't fit any of these, did anyone else notice how crappy he looked?

TinselSass said...

Enty, please explain... if Coke Mom is Coke Mom, what's the legality in revealing?! Does this mean that the truth doesn't prevail?! Oh, another delusion bubble popped.

Meg C.H. said...

As long as its not Danny Pino (Cold Case).....

jbeebs said...

Vincent D'Onofrio. So bummed because he is awesome!
Don't think its Anthony Anderson. Saw him a couple of weeks ago with his family. and he seemed fine.Not that I talked to him or anything.

Anne said...

C, you are so right on the Rachael Bilson reveal to the recent blind that was listed in the photos today.

I never have understood her being put up as a "fashion" person either - her fashion doesn't seem terribly interesting. She should get some perspective. I like her as an actress, but keep the ego in check.

kate said...

i looove Vinnie D..he does look like one of us "unstables" and yes we do self medicate at times. I STILL think Coke mom is Tea Leoni..

Sean said...

Vincent D is a perfect guess. Had drug problems in the past. Which is why they always brought in replacements like Chris Noth and Jeff Goldblum

thurbers said...

I know someone who is at L&O alot. Anderson and Sisto were on set and working everyday last week that my friend was. So, not them.

Criminal Intent just got back to work from hiatus, so that probably lets anyone over there out.

Mooshki said...

Pants, thanks for the research!

I wouldn't be surprised if it's D'Onofrio. :( I think he had to be the answer to the blind about the show that went on hiatus while the star was in rehab. I still love him, though, and hope that if it's him he can get clean.

ambernyc said...

Isn't Caruso already a former addict? Wouldn't be shocking if it was him.

Plus, as ashamed as I am to admit, I fucking love the cheesiness that is Horatio Caine.

MinaBat said...

ambernyc - i agree. while Horatio is cheese, it's like superhero cheese that just can't be denied.

I'm gonna go with Vincent D. for this one.

Karmen said...

Tinselsass - if enty gets reamed by Natalie Portman's publicist for saying unkind things about her, I can only imagine the ramifications of revealing Coke Mom's identity. This isn't some frivolous BI about an actress being a diva or whatever (as much as I love those). This BI shows she abuses illegal drugs and puts her child at risk. Big accusations. As much as I want Enty to reveal Coke Mom, I realize why he hasn't.

Char said...

But, isn't D'Onofrio confirmed to be off CI now? So the blind wouldn't really make sense to be about him.

Anonymous said...

hollase - re: Rigsby (and I know I'm gonna catch crap for this) is vegan. He might not be getting all the protein he needs, and I'm sure that since they're trying to sell him as a sex symbol they're making him work out a ton.

Jamie's Girl said...

No way is it Caruso. No way.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I'm also throwing my hat into the ring as far as having a crush on Vincent D'Onofrio goes. Maybe I have a crush on Bobby Goren, I'm not sure. EITHER WAY.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

As far as coke mom goes I figure Ent probably can't get sued for slanderous comments if the story is in fact true. The best defense against slander is the truth, so what is the problem with revealing it? Maybe he is waiting for a juicy reveal, or maybe it isn't true. Who knows.

I forgot to put that in my original post cause I became focused on Vincent D. Sorreee!

Martha said...

Quintessential Southerner: Please don't crack on Criminal Minds, my current tv obsession. Criminal Minds is on CBS, clearly a network show.

As far as being a hit: CBS placed first in viewers and adults 18-49 (tie) on the first Wednesday of the new season led by the season premieres of CRIMINAL MINDS and CSI: NY, according to Nielsen preliminary ratings for Sept. 23.

At 9PM, CRIMINAL MINDS (P) was first in households (9.4/15), viewers (15.42m), adults 25-54 (5.4/13) and second in adults 18-49 (4.2/11, -0.1 behind ABC).CRIMINAL MINDS is the night's #1 program in viewers and adults 25-54. -CBS

That being said, I don't believe the blind could be about VDO. He's basically off the show, which is in hiatus anyway. Is Southland being considered a hit? Could be someone on there.

Tania said...

What about somebody from 'Numb3rs'?
It's a hit police-type show, or at least it keeps getting renewed ;-) Two leads, David Krumholtz and Rob Morrow.

Nutty_Flavor said...

While the Coke Mom story might be true, Enty might have a difficult time proving so. Should Coke Mom decide to sue, the person who told him the story - a good source - could find himself or herself publicly exposed on the witness stand. Uncomfortable for all involved.

The only time Enty could reveal Coke Mom's name without fear of repercussions is if, unfortunately, she dies. Legally you can not defame a dead person.

Coat said...

Nathan Fillion on Castle.

Wryly said...

Adam Rodriguez CSI Miami?

Idiot Watcher said...

Sam Waterston. :-)

Stephanie said...

I totally want Vincent D'Onofrio. I want to fix him. And my guess is still him.

kate said...

its soooo Tea Leoni.. she has two kids aged 10 and 8, and she has a movie called You Kill Me..

mngddess said...

I hate when I read this shit. An actor who has the priveledge of working on a hit show is spending his time binging on drugs while I sit here desperately looking for work. IDIOT.

__-__=__ said...

It can't be L&O or CSI. Aren't those two A-list as far as police type shows. I think it's that guy from Burn Notice on USA. And I do like that show. But he's been shown in a bad way before. Remember???

And Debra Messing as coke mom! Wow! That totally fits. Excellent detective work my friend Pants!

Marina Ortiz said...

No Bones about it. Then again, could be David Boreanaz.

A said...

awww!i hope it's not D'Onofrio. i've bumped into him with his wife and kids (some time ago, not recently). they're really nice people.

Felly said...

Cheezy.

Hit show rules out Nathan Fillion. Castle is the worst rated show on ABC. It was the worst rated 1h show last season, and it is the worst rated show this season so far.

Jess said...

Is it possible that it's David Boreanaz??

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Boreanaz! Bones production is shut down!
