Today's Blind Items

This still barely hanging on to A list comic actor who is supposedly a devoted family man has been accused several times recently on his movies for acting inappropriately with female co-stars. They say that in the guise of being funny he will often rub his peen against women and does this with or without pants and the whole time does it in public and while laughing. He says he is just joking around but it seems to only be done when there are attractive women around and he never does it to a name actress only to those with lesser parts.

Jack Black - seems the type

Nosey said...

perhaps vince vaughn or will ferrell?

ms snarky said...

Will Ferrell has a pretty squeaky rep, I vote for him.

ms snarky said...

On second thought, Ben Stiller.

Ida Blankenship said...

Ben Stiller? I know he's supposed to be a big asshole, but he's been married to Melody from Hey, Dude for what seems like ages, and they've got a bunch of kids together.

I also like BigMama's Jack Black guess.

How about Adam Sandler, too? Personally, I think calling him a "comic" actor is a stretch, though. ;-)

sparkyberyl said...

For some reason I can picture Adam Sandler

Nosey said...

is jack black considered a list? i would think b...

Nosey said...

i its pretty clear after the blinds that ben is not a great family man, so i would think he is out... adam sandler is a great guess too. does anyone else think his daughter is ugly? its probably really mean, but i think she is so not cute!

ms snarky said...

@Ida

The gossip is that Ben's a bit of a cheater, plus not all that nice to Christine and the marriage is all but over. But who knows?

Missjenny619 said...

Sandler or Ferrell maybe...

But I can see Jim Carrey doing something like this too, although he isn't highly regarded as a "devoted family man"

SusanB said...

Adam Sandler came immediately to mind.

flwrgurl said...

Chris Rock (?)

Dana @ What the Frock? said...

Adam Sandler was the first one who came to mind.

The Forrest Family said...

Will Smith maybe

evergrey said...

Yep, Adam Sandler immediately came to mind. He fits the "barely hanging on to A list" for me.

Lots of movies, some successful, but most recent ones ...not.

Julie said...

holy crap, i'm not the only one who thought sandler right away LOL awesomesauce

Nosey said...

@ the forrest family....i think will would be a solid A...

lolaluvs2snack said...

Ben!!!! Shame on you...

Ida Blankenship said...

@Nosey -- "does anyone else think his daughter is ugly? its probably really mean, but i think she is so not cute!"

You are not alone, my friend. Not. At. All.

But some children grow waaaaay better looking and far less awkward with age. I mean, who knows? Maybe Rumer Willis was an adorable baby? ;-)

Cecilia00 said...

Mike Meyers?? Is he still married?

Anonymous said...

I will say Will Ferrell. I'm thinking about a lot of his stuff on SNL, a lot of which involved him crowding the personal space of others via various body parts. And the fact that in every one of his films there's at least one scene where he rips all of his clothes off and runs down the street, while on fire, on the racetrack, etc., etc. And the fact that he is completely off the pap radar and generally presumed to be a nice family man (getting his daughter to participate/swear in a skit, aw, how cute...let me send the youtube to 300 people I don't know). So yeah, I say Will. The others mentioned above don't seem to fit, for one reason or another.

jmid said...

Eddie Murphy?

linnea said...

Arghh, my response disappeared!

Either way, how often could he be around women without his pants on? Seems like it has got to be someone who goes naked from time to time, ie Will?

califblondy said...

Ben was the first to come to mind, although Adam seems to fit the "devoted family man" description better.

Anybody trying to give me an unwanted wanger rub is asking for trouble.

lolaluvs2snack said...

You guys talked me into it Will makes more sense he is often half dressed more often than the others. lol

I can't imagine being molested at work. I would pass gas on his crotch, I bet he would stop then...lmao (you gotta get them with something just as obscene and sneaky)
:-)

B626 said...

Robin Williams

Mina said...

Wasn't there a rumor a while ago that Moby used to this on parties? Whipping out his penis and rubbing it on girls and women while passing them?

Ida Blankenship said...

@B626 -- OMG. As a child of the eighties, I *must* insist that Robin Williams is an eternal A-lister!!

And I can see this being Will, too -- but he's been getting gigs still, and he's still fairly high up in the Hollywood chain.

Nosey said...

will has been getting gigs, but his hey day is kinda over.... he hasnt been in much lately that was at the same level of old school...

girltrav said...

Jim Carrey?

Mark said...

I don't know why Tim Allen came immediately to mind.

Nosey said...

@ Mark, time allen has to be like a C lister

Mark said...

Nosey -
Tim Allen starred in the highest grossing movie of 2010 and has a new show coming out.

Nosey said...

@mark, i didnt know that!!! but i think tht would make him maybe be crawling back from a c, maybe a b then?

Bnl1016 said...

I know I'm going to be in the minority here, but I think depends on what kind of stuff you are into. For me and the people I know Will Ferrell is def still A list. Especially with Stepbrothers being not too long ago, his appearance on the office and time and eric's billion dollar movie on its way. I know he's one of those hit or miss with people for sure, but I just don't see him as barely hanging on to A list though.

I do think the Will Smith idea is intriguing because he has such a huge family man image. Him and Jada are so open about sex too I can see him pulling it out and trying to pass it off as a joke. Especially since rumors have it that the sex talk is a big ruse so people don't know they've lost interest in each other. He also gets pretty naked in some of his movies.

Although I don't think the level of nakedness in movies is relevant. So much crazy ish goes on on sets these days.....

Anonymous said...

Not to split hairs, but Will Smith's nakedness is often incidental to the movies he's in. Stepping out of a shower, getting dressed, that sorta thing. Will Ferrell's is typically more outrageous, because yes, we do need to see that appendectomy-scar one more time.

Still, valid point on Smith's pronounced family man status, open sex life, etc. I really can't decide on anything today.

Patty O. said...

This is obviously Tracy Jordan.

evergrey said...

@Sonny - I wasn't so sure at first that this could be Will, but after reading your earlier post now I can definitely see this being him.

Hmm, this IS interesting. ...

Bnl1016 said...

I def agree that the nakedness is in way different contexts..... I just mentioned it because if being naked on set were a factor they both do it. Naked is naked no matter the context once the cameras stop rolling. I'm not completely sold on Will Smith, I just see he or Adam Sandler on more of a decline than Will Ferrell.

What about Tom Hanks. Can't ya just see that guy putting his peen on everyone, lol. (jk)

sandman said...

its not sandler, he is solid A list & always hits 100 million with his suk movies, even the latest ones.
gotta be someone like jim carrey who has really fallen off the map.
not sure if he matches family guy tho.

Steph said...

Ben Stiller ftw

Bnl1016 said...

whatttt abouttt sacha baron chohen? just had his second kid with isla.... for awhile was so prominent with his borat and bruno stuff and now has kind of slipped away.

i dont fully get the list stuff but i would think he def had a list name recognition for awhile there. and he's pretty free with himself, to put it mildly.

Kristin said...

When I first saw Adam Sandler's daughter I thought to myself, "There's an unfortunate looking child. She is going to have a tough row to hoe in Hollywood." But then Tori Spelling wasn't an attractive child and she's had enough plastic surgery to pass muster.

Nosey said...

yea my first thought of his daughter, was oh dear god that child is hideous!!!

Maja. With a J. said...

Will Ferrell.


And don't be mean to little Sadie! Yeah, she has a chubby face but I think she will grow up to be one of those really uniquely beautiful girls. You know, where you look at their features and they SHOULDN'T be beautiful, yet they are just stunning. Like Amy Winehouse before all the drugs, or Adele, or my friend in junior high who had a big nose and a huge gap between her teeth, but was GORGEOUS.

Ida Blankenship said...

@Maja -- Oh, God. I don't even find Adele *debatedly* gorgeous. I just find her STRAIGHT-UP gorgeous.

RocketQueen said...

I'm going to say Jim Belushi, just because I can't stand the guy.

The Black Cat said...

Jason Bateman just to be different.

B. Profane said...

Enty ranks by grosses, so Stiller is out because he is A+ list at the moment due to the huge success of the Fockers and Night at the Museum franchises. Sandler is pretty solid A-list because his films do so well overseas.

I hate to say it but Will Ferrell seems the best fit. He's had a couple of huge bombs recently and his "successes" of late are only pulling 2X over budget. At least one ex SNL cast has talked about how Will was really kinda weird backstage.

Bnl1016 said...

I'm still open to this being anyone, but if it ranks by grosses Adam Sandler would def qualify as barely hanging on to A.

His recent movies over the past 5 years or so havent even done 2x the budget and Funny People did about 25mil less. And thats worldwide so being big overseas isn't enough to net that much money.

I don't think its him, but his movies are netting less than WF's so I just don't understand how that disqualifies Sandler and not WF also.

How much over budget do you have to be to be considered A list?

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Adam Sandler was the first person I thought of when I read "barely hanging on to A list comic actor." That guy hasn't been funny in at least 10 years, probably closer to 15.

CarolMR said...

I can't believe the nasty things said about a little girl's looks! No wonder women have such a negative image of themselves. And we women are the worst offenders, dammit.

Angela said...

Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Will Ferrell are all A-list big time. All three are also producers.
Sandler's recent movies might have hit a lull in the theaters but they're still huge sellers on video.
Ben Stiller is a huge star, owns a production company, can direct #1 pictures.
Will Ferrell had a few flops (and Enty spoke about them) but The Other Guys was a huge hit and put him back on track. And he takes away his shirt because he's a little chubby and repulsing not to look attractive.

Jim Carrey isn't a family man.
Mike Meyers wouldn't harass a female extra, and hasn't shot a live action movie since The Love Guru.
Jack Black has two kids and has been married for five years. He's a contender.
Also a contender: Chris Rock. 15 years of marriage, two kids.
As long as it's not Steve Carell...

KellyLynn said...

This has got to be Will Ferrell. The description also reminds me a little of the How I Met Your Mother episode where the group learns the naked man technique from one of Robin's less-than-studly dates.
The technique involves getting invited into a date's home, and, while the date is in another room, taking all of your clothes off. The guy who described it said the women are either shocked or amused, and he ends up in bed with them "two out of three times."
Maybe this is the actor's version of the Naked Man?

Janet296 said...

When I read that that he is supposedly a family man, I thought of Chris Rock.

B. Profane said...

Chris Rock is not A-list. The Other Guys was not a huge hit and pulling 2X worldwide over base budget is actually tepid. I think Ferrell himself has hinted that his A-list stature may not last.

I could be persuaded that this is Sandler base on the ranking. His profitability is still reliable but no longer stellar. Still doesn't seem like him.

Can't be Carrell (Date Night was huge), can't think of a fading TV A-lister other than Grammer and he doesn't fit. Eddie Murphy would just pay a pro. Can't get anyone to really fit the clues besides Ferrell and maybe Sandler.

old ;ady said...

I instantly thought Adam Sandler. His face came into my mind by the second sentence. I know Tim Allen and it is NOT him. He will pull jokes on you, but he still is just a nice guy.

J-Mo said...

the comments about a child's looks suck. You're all judging her by adult standards and I'd be glad if I had a daughter who grew up to be beautiful intstead of pretty by Hollywood standards, eeeew

Mango said...

@ The Black Cat - You take that back about Justin Bateman !!!!!!!

Squeegee Sink said...

What the fuck is wrong with people, talking shit about a defenseless little kid??!!! Puke.

Jamie's Girl said...

Will Ferrell would def do this.

hunter said...

If it's Will, then he's really changed. One of the best, most balanced stars you could ever meet. At least a few years back. Hard for me to believe it would be him...his character seemed a very rare rock solid.

Kraymond19 said...

1. Not Will Ferrell. Never heard a bad word about him from women OR men who have worked with him.

2. Not his kid cursing in the FOrD video. It was one of the Funny or Die producer's little girl. Lay off!

3. Really people? Picking on a little kid? Shame on you judgemental a__holes!

Lea said...

My first thought was Steve Carrell. Hope I'm wrong.

B. Profane said...

Everyone knows that Pearl was McKay's kid, jeez.

It can't be Carrell. Get Smart ended up doing very well overseas and Date Night was a hit. Guy's star ain't fading.

Everyone else is a reach. Robin Williams seems to have gracefully relinquished his A-list status. Carrey is a family man only if you mean that he's tried to be a good dad to his now-adult daughter. There just aren't that many A-list yuckers.

If it's a legit BI, all signs point to Ferrell, with Sandler a possible answer as well.

Ziddolee said...

What about Paul Rudd? I love him, but Jason Segel claimed he was taking a nap on the set of Forgetting Sarah Marshall one time and woke up to see Paul with his pants down standing there grinning. I don't know if he made it up. Then at an award show, he grabbed Eva Mendes's boob and Rosario Dawson grabbed his crotch in retaliation. I know it was all staged, but it was weird. Like it was supposed to be strangely "out of character", but somehow at the same time payback for being a pig on set. He would never do it to Reese Witherspoon or Rashida Jones, but maybe some extras. Sex Panther, indeed!

GoGo said...

I was actually thinking someone older, like Eddie Murphy or Robin Williams.
I don't think any of the Apatow guys like Rudd or Segel -- maybe e'en Will Ferrell -- (thankfully) are A-list yet and, they would probably do that to one another -- AND it WOULD be funny (although I guess, still sexual harassment...)

Nicole said...

It's hard for me to picture this being Paul Rudd. I don't know him, but as he's my #1 crush, I've read just about everything I can get my hands on about him, and by all accounts he's one of the genuinely good guys. Also, both he and Jason Bateman are, IMO, on their way to A-list status, not barely hanging on to it.

I kinda picture Will Farrell for this too, even though it makes me sad.

Micahceous said...

It can't be Will Smith. The blind says "still barely hanging on to A list comic actor." When was the last comical movie Will Smith did? Hitched? He's definitely more into drama and action flicks and still very much A-list. He's not barely hanging onto anything.

B. Profane said...

Paul Rudd has never been A-list.

Angela said...

Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen are reported to be very shy in person. They mostly cover themselves with the character they're supposed to play and do outrageous things as them. There are very few interviews of Baron Cohen out of character.
You may find his or Ferrell's comic gross because they have some humor based on nudity but Monty Python did it in their days and none of them were sexual harassers...

And Ferrell's movies, like many American comics, don't do well overseas in the theaters but get much bigger audiences on video. Remember also that he's a partner in Funny or Die or TV shows such as Eastbound and Down.

ecua said...

Unfortunately, I think Adam Sandler is the biggest contender.

@Califblondy: "Anybody trying to give me an unwanted wanger rub is asking for trouble."<-----THAT WAS FUCKING AWESOME!!!!

Rawsterdam said...

Mike Meyers is gay
Will Smith seems gay, and Jada would go batshit crazy on his ass, don't think she won't know.
Adam Sandler is painfully shy on sets
Eddie Murphy keeps to himself as well
Ben Stiller is a douche, but prefers hookers, and no PDA (if whippin out your dick can be called that)
Would be surprised if it's Chris Rock
Would love it to be Will Ferrell, also a douche, but doubt it

Guess I'll have to go with Robin Williams, but he just doesn't seem like much of a family man.

Who else is out there?

angelwhatt said...

Bob Saget

misspoppypants said...

Um if it is *drool* Jason Bateman as someone humorously suggested, I want to be an extra on his next film and I will be backing into his crotch. Whoever this is, its called 'frotteurism" (sp?) but my ex and I used to call it 'crotcherism' because we amuse ourselves. Jack Black I could totally see as well as backing into that mess with a box cutter
