Today's Blind Items - It's All Business

When you first look at this actor, the words sex symbol are not going to be the first words out of your mouth. You know him. All of you know him. All of you might not know his name, but you know him. He is pretty darn close to A list. He has been the lead in A list television shows. He has been in some of the biggest box office hits of all-time. He does comedy and drama. He is on a hit show right now. He is in a hit franchise that will probably go on forever. He is also just completely average in looks. He is foreign born and married. He has a great game he plays. His wife is the trusting sort and our actor is just so non-threatening. He cheats and cheats and the women he cheats with are convinced they are his first affair. They protect him and smother him and have this obsession with him. A recent example is our actor told his wife he had business out of the country. He did have a meeting or two for his franchise, but he also found the time to hook up with multiple women. Each of them thought they were the only one he was seeing all weekend. He left specific instructions with the front desk of the hotel that no two of his women should meet. He is quite the Lothario, but his wife thinks it is all business.

Could it be Martin Freeman again? He was in the Lord of the Rings franchise, currently filming Captain America and is on Sherlock.

Hey Dena, I thought immediately Freeman, but he has a partner, not married
Sean Bean maybe.

Didn't enty do this w/Martin Freeman before w/his significant other & the complicated relationship w/Cumberbatch(didn't go to wedding,blah..blah)

back again said...

LOL @raye

Tricia13 said...

Sean Bean has alot of TV..including GOT and Legends which is aTNT hit i think(season 2 anyway) Movies are TLOTR..Plus I think hes gnarly/mean looking not matinee idol at all.And hes married...Freeman isnt (unless Enty referrring to common law which be a new category for him lol)

back again said...

I like Dena's guess but what Franchise is going to go on forever? isn't Lord Of The rings /The Hobbit Done?

Derek Harvey said...

Shawn Ashmore---on The Following and was in the X men movies. Is Canadian and married.

Kno Won Uno said...

I think Bean's OK. Definitely not icky.

back again said...

no,I meant Toby Jones for not alot of TV

Tricia13 said...

He has a TV resume. More film, but TV. New show airing on Fox this week, though so cant be a hit yet technically:(

Dena said...

He's going to be in the next Captain America, so I was thinking the Marvel superheroes/Avengers franchise.

back again said...

oh..well that works then (except for that lil'detail of not being married,heheh-but that's never stopped Enty)

back again said...

..speaking of..'The Following' just got the Axe. cancelled.

French girl said...

Cucumberbitch?

Riven said...

I have been waiting so long for a David Morse BI lol but dang it he's not in any franchise movies! One day Mr Morse, one day you will be my A/B character actor BI guess.

Today is not that day. Yay for you and your wife.

Princess Kate said...

Sean Bean is VERY sexy.

Princess Kate said...

Freeman does seem to be a good fit, except for the married/partner thing (which could be a mistake, I thought they were married,too). But surely, he must be A list, after the Hobbit trilogy, since he starred in it. And isn't he pretty well known by this point?

Mark said...

Martin Freeman (god, I can't wait for someone to tweet this at Amanda Abbington; she can never resist running her mouth).

"the lead in A list television show" - Fargo, Sherlock, The Office
"in some of the biggest box office hits of all-time" - The Hobbit films
"comedy and drama" - just look up his filmography
"on a hit show right now" - Sherlock
"in a hit franchise that will probably go on forever" - just announced to be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe
"just completely average in looks" - self explanatory, hit up Google Images for more
"foreign born and married" - Freeman is British and his "wife" is his longtime partner Amanda Abbington who he's had two kids with

macaroniandcheese said...

I don't have a horse in that Cumberbatch trainwreck, but I do love Martin Freeman quite a lot. Even so, as much as I'd hate to say it, I don't put this past him. It would be so easy for him. The "wife" part is likely because he always calls her his Missus, plus the two of them have teased that whole, "Oh, maybe we've gone and gotten married already, teehee" thing in the past. The narrative he has run in the past ("Oh, I hope to grow to be 70 with her") probably helps him run this game, too. The woman he's attempting to seduce would feel so special that she--SHE--is the one he's going to find irresistible enough to cheat on his soulmate with. Also, if you've ever peeked into the Freeman fandom, the women and men there would absolutely smother him with affection, love, and sex--especially if they thought he was unhappy and unfulfilled at home.

Also, since joining Twitter, Amanda seems to alternate being proud of as well as jealous of his success. I'm sure it tweaks her on some level that he is more popular than she is--as well as the reason she is as popular as she is. Curiously, she's removed pictures of him from her avatars/profiles recently and doesn't mention him as much. They've also spent a lot of time apart while he has been filming this year, skipped a few notable events with each other, and she said some really weird, cryptic things in her last big article. She also said she was going to bring the kids and live in New Mexico with him while he was filming "Taliban Shuffle" (likely to keep him away from the lovely Kate McKinnon, who--lesbian or not--has amazing chemistry with him). There's a lot stacking up in quiet bits and pieces showing trouble in their particular paradise, but no one is noticing it as much because everyone in the overlapping fandoms is obsessed with Ben's fucknuttery on one side or the other.

TheCousinEddy said...

Martin Freeman, as others have guessed, is the first person that came to my mind (funny, I couldn't think of his name, but could picture him and the shows and films he was in). He played his character in Fargo so well I've wondered if he actually possessed any of those traits in real life...

oh. no. said...

Can't see it being anyone other than Martin Freeman.

etel said...

agree, definitely Freeman/Abbington. the wife part is unimportant, they're together 14 years, they might as well be married.

wellwellwell said...

The Office, Sherlock, The Hobbit, and recently Marvel franchise (he was in US in April), also Amanda Abbington gives an impression of quite gullible woman. It's definitely Martin Freeman (although i'm very surprised, he doesn't look like cheater).

jane said...

I can't imagine Martin Freeman being cheater. Also, wasn't there a BI few weeks ago that Amanda is cheating on him? So what is the truth now? I call bullshit. They look like steady couple, have two small children, never were involved in any scandal. Might be just theory, but looks like certain castmate who's recently involved in scandal on his own is trying to put spotlight on them to shift public eye from his own problems.

Still top said...

Martin is notoriously a dick I'm sad to say, ask any fan who has met him or any one who has interviewed him.. He is about as far from a nice guy as you can get, so I can see this being him. Pity because I liked him since The Office

Natalie said...

If it's Martin Freeman, such a shame. He struck me as the happily settled family man.

Yeahsure said...

But Freeman isn't married - he and Amanda are long-term partners with children. Suppose it could be a "detail fudge" on Enty's part, and wasn't Freeman in New Mexico recently filmng? And wasn't there a BI suggesting Amanda and Cumberbatch got it on last fall/winter?

Yeahsure said...

No, Bean way too attractive - he may have aged but sex symbol IS what he's been about from early days.

Yeahsure said...

Tend to agree - no way this matches Cumberbatch but it's uncomfortably close to what seems to be floating around Freeman and Abbingdon.

Yeahsure said...

Too bad. I liked Abbingdon so much in "Case Histories".

macaroniandcheese said...

He was randomly in Atlanta a couple weeks ago for about a week, just ahead of the announcement of him joining the MCU. Not long enough to film, likely just for meetings.

top said...

Yeah, he was in Georgia two weeks ago. I don't think he was hooking up there, most likely he came to film few scenes and rest of the movie is filmed in Pinewood, UK anyway.

Steve said...

Could it be Simon Pegg?

Just Me said...

I tried to hit on him once, a couple of years ago. I was completely unsuccessful (although he did flirt back a bit, then said goodbye and that was it) and I'm not bad-looking at all.
