Blind Item #5

This aging former A list mostly television actor from a hit network show turned A list mostly movie actor turned mostly television actor on another hit network show is married. His wife and everyone knows on the set of his show though that his stylist does no styling and is his long time male lover. Our actor refuses to ever come out of the closet and at this point in his career after hiding for decades, no one really expects him to.

I like Spader for this if we are talking "partner" instead of "wife"

Tricia S said...

Hmmm

Brin said...

Tim Allen came to mind also

Grammer ? Can't think of movies for him. But I'm still entertaining me sandman here.

Tricia S said...

@SYF....KG really only did A list VOice over work in film....so im gonna have to say not likely him:(

I have 1 last guess...
Mark Harmon
1st show st elsewhere
All his films(close to A especially around presidio era)
NCIS

Now I run for cover!!!
Ps..I love him too

Well, if the wife knows and is comfortable with the situation, why are we even discussing this?

It's one thing if the wife is clueless and is being cheated on with the stylist, but if she's cool with the situation, it's nobody's business.

auntliddy said...

Who cares? Except if, as pip says, he is duping his wife.

Michael said...

Tom Selleck has had rumors bout him his entire career. magnum then some movies (Quigley Down Under being the best of them) then back to television with Blue Bloods. I like this guess better than Harmon.

Anothergrayhare said...

I thought of Danson too. Everyone knows Selleck supposedly bats for the other team.

My friend saw James Spader having an intimate dinner with a young twink at an Italian restaurant in San Francisco. They had a little tiff and everything so while I think James Spader is gay for boys, (not that there is anything wrong with that) I'm not sure this is him. Doesn't he just have one show and his illustrious 80's movie career?

All Lace no Leather said...

No Tricia! Mark Harmon is my fantasy boyfriend/husband! As long as he's straight I still have a chance!

Pip Squeak said...

@auntliddy: The blind specifies that the actor's wife knows the situation. He's not cheating on her. This is their agreement.

Also, we're talking about an actor who been doing this for decades. Perhaps since the 70s, when openly gay actors could not play straight men, and there were hardly a ton of roles for gay men.

It sounds like a noncontroversial solution to a problem. It it works for him and his wife, and his boyfriend doesn't mind being his "stylist," this is a non-story.

Lady Heisenberg said...

@sugar- Spader has always given me the errrr, sexually fluid, vibe. I was obsessed with him on Boston Legal back in the day!

Sugar said...

I forgot about Boston Legal. Never watched it. I'm more of a fan of James Spader the movie star than James Spader the tv star.

hothotheat said...

Spader was A list movie first then television.

KG, Selleck, Danson and Harmon were never A list movie (but all were A list TV).

I hate to say it but Macy certainly fits.

cocokate said...

um, excuse me but selleck WAS A list movie. have you seen three men and a baby/lady??? haha

cocokate said...

also, i'd say spader, but he is current a list tv. blacklist is very popular

Sherry said...

Sorry kids. Gotta be Seleck and if Jilly is ok with it then good for them.

meme deemed said...

+1

Tricia S said...

@ALNL...he's dreamy, and so nice.
Probably not him....:)))

Prunella Buggerweeds said...

I had never heard that Tom Selleck was a closeted gay, but when I read this thread I was all SMH - of course. So my vote is for Selleck.

Basil said...

Could be Selleck, but is so, why would he do that Kiss and Tell movie with Kevin Kline? Or was it Out and About????

Topper Madison said...

I ate dinner at a casual restaurant at an adjacent table to Tom Selleck and his family once. They looked like a totally normal American family. They were all in jeans and were a bit dirty, like they had just gone on a family hike. I wouldn't even have noticed them if my friend hadn't pointed them out. Pinged absolutely zero on my gaydar. He looked more like a Midwestern farmer than someone with a gay stylist lover.

hunter said...

It is these dinner table stories like the ones about Spader & Selleck that I come to CDAN comments for. They are the golden gossip in my book, like anecdotes from WriterGirlinLA and such.

Whether or not Selleck is gay, it's interesting to know he has a standard American family who does standard American outings.

Love the part about Spader's spat with the twink.

Flora Goforth said...

Early in his career Mark Harmon claimed to be bi. After the AIDS crisis appeared he denied it. Though a lot of people claimed to be bi in the 70s.

Topper, Selleck was a prick to me (for no reason) the one time in my life I had to deal with him.

Cathryn Chandler said...

Joe Mantegna

astrogirl said...

Selleck headlined that movie with Paulina Poriskova too. I think it's him

parissucksliterally said...

Basil, the movie was "In and Out".

Joan Cusack was the best part of that movie. :)

sugarbread maker said...

Selleck always seemed Super comfortable in those Hawaiian shirts and daisy dukes in the 80s
plus 3 men and a lady was a huge hit
plus Her Alibi

Blue bloods
on the Tom Tom train..

zippoducer said...

This is 100% Tom Selleck. Actually, this blind comes at a coincidental time- a young man whose parents are both friends of Selleck's and my own expressed nervousness to my daughter about something he had posted on Datalounge this week regarding Selleck. She asked me if he compromised his identity-- He did give clues to his identity, but Tom's sexuality is old news among certain groups so I doubt they'll care.

Geebz said...

Macy

EastCoaster said...

Tom Selleck seems like a perfect fit. Good job folks!

Aoife said...

I kept going "the Blue Bloods guy" and couldn't remember his name. Tom Selleck.

Hegg said...

John Goodman is in the closet, so maybe him.

Alita said...

I am indifferent to people's sexual orientation, people I don't know I mean (obviously I want to share in the lives and loves of my friends, whatever they may be). But John Goodman? That made me double-take. Really?

Bee Haven said...

Alita : the bear population would LOVE John Goodman as a poster boy! Grrrŕrr!!

Sandy said...

Not Spader (hound), not Danson (hound). It's Selleck.
