Blind Items Revealed #2

May 17, 2018

This network show recently got picked up from a pilot. The lead actress was told she wasn't going to be part of the series because of several reasons but it is mainly because the network thought she was too old. They want someone a few decades younger who will sometimes get half naked. The lead actor quit the show in solidarity with his co-star.

The Code/Mira Sorvino/Dave Annable

Huge respect for Dave Annable. He just made a new fan of me.

Vessimede Barstool said...

Am I supposed to be outraged? It's showbiz, yes the producers want a young actress with a good bod to get naked, sex sells. Having someone who's old and saggy isn't going to give me a hard on, so I'm not going to tune in. Sorvino was given a pilot gig, she should act like a fucking professional and accept job done, pick up her check and move on to the next thing. The producers owed her jack shit, but being a white woman she's of course super entitled. As for the cuck white knighting, what a loser.

I only saw Annable on 666 Park Avenue but he's good, he and Sorvino can do much better than CBS.

Or maybe since Mira wasn't the female lead she wanted too much money for a co-starring role and they told her to fuck off? In any case it's not strange for pilots that get picked up to be recast with names more favorable to tv roles or the role gets re-written completely.

I've had a crush on Dave Annabel since Brothers and Sisters, which just exploded 10 fold. I've been routing for Sorvino to make a comeback, particularly in light of the Weinstein stuff. Feeling sad for her. She shouldn't have to take her clothes off on camera to be employable.

Amy Casey said...

How lovely of Dave Annable. Never heard of him before today but massive respect.

Amy Casey said...

Should be a kindness blind.

Naked for a CBS show? .... why didn’t the producers tell her they wanted the lead to show some skin when offering the project? That’s their fault because they thought they could trick her.

@Vessimede Barstool
You are disgusting. And the reason why tv and movies suck is because they try and sell sex and FAIL MISRABLY with these UGLY TRANNIES.
Hope you know all the 'women' who make you hard are simply DRAG QUEENS.
LOLOLOL
Loser.

She used to be hot. So she experienced some great treatment that ordinary people never get in their entire lives.

Now that's over. Get a hobby.

Human condition.

Vessimede is a racist, homophobe, hates women...classic troll

D Brown said...

CBS recast at least three shows that they picked up. I suspect the younger/nuder cause is just a gossip site trying to attract comment. The bulk of recasting is because the actors were signed without reading etc . In other words the competition for talent in the upfront cycle is so intense they go straight to offers with "names". When they show the pilot and get reactions they realize there are more appropriate choices.

IT'S HAPPENING!
This could have been avoided.

Derp said...

And “a modest proposal” is a recipe

Get off your fucking high horse and relax

Shawn McGuire said...

I agree, vessimede is a dysfunctional human. but your name would be better if it was one eyed boob

Replacing an older actress with a younger one is about as controversial as replacing an older athlete whose performance is declining lately with a younger one.

Also, Mira Sorvino can come right over here anytime.

Dartmouth GIRL said...

Mira is a very talented actress as well as beautiful and accomplished. I commend Dave Annable for his support as he is also a revered actor.
They will both go on to greater projects, and CBS actions have thankfully brought them both back into awareness.

J said...

Lilian Gish is talented and beautiful too.

CJ said...

I've got some sympathy for Sorvino because Weinstein sabotaged her career. She really deserves at least some kind of financial settlement from that.

That said, pilots get recast all the time and we likely don't know the whole story.

one_eyed_bob said...

Derp and Shawn McGuire - he regularly posts anti-Semitic and homophobic comments and I will continue to call him for that. If you want to condone vessimede’s comments that says a lot about you. Allowing racist language to be used on this site without any challenge makes it one step closer to being normalized on here.

Lyla said...

Hope Annable is a good guy but I don't think you can ignore him looking out for his own interests. Chemistry is everything, so if he and Mira have it, then he should sell it hard to network as a team/duo. Otherwise, he stands to be replaced along with Mira.

Brayson87 said...

It was a shame about Mira, she should have been a huge star.

Hortensia said...

Vessimeade: You need soap: in your mouth, and all over your body. Wash off the Gross and Disgusting,a nd STUPID.

Sd Auntie said...

Mira is hot and think she is talented. LOL @ MStyles.

Low Key said...

Troll fight!!
I got popcorn!

Tara Green said...

Lol don't feed the troll. He's just trying to be hurtful.

texasrose said...

Mira was probably ok with this type of practice when she was a few decades younger.

Nonya Bidness said...

Mira is still looking hot - she's guest starred on Modern Family a few times this last season.

Remie Ross said...

you lost me at "entitled white woman"! I'm sure this has nothing to do with her race and gender and more about the egos of Hollywood actors, but you just can't resist slipping your bias in there can you? Sad

Remie Ross said...

Oh, and vasectomy barfstool, if you want nudity and sex stick with the low quality pornos that you watch with your dad.

Remie Ross said...

I understand your concern one eye bob, but the very reason we have freedom of speech is to protect even the most horrid of speech. Despite being offensive, it's more important that we preserve our rights. Comment back to trolls, or just skip over what they write, but We should all greatly respect this site for NOT censoring speech!

Jane Hanoi said...

I get the 'they want a younger actress' cause sorvino is getting to the character actor age and far from an ingenue.
But the getting 1/2 naked makes no sense. Its cbs, they barely get naked compared to non-network shows, so what are you really gonna see?.
And like 99% of the actresses out there, sorvino would strip for a role.
i think its more, the cbs suits think their viewers dont want to see an middle-aged/old lady in a potential semi- romantic lead role and want to play it safe with a younger woman.

Hanabekki said...

+1 Stephie & Amy - what a stand up guy! I loved Mira in The Replacement Killers. She's smart, talented and deserves to work.

Rome said...

This is such a lode of infantile bullshit. I will never tolerate racist, sexist or bigoted garbage. I will always call it out and shame the fuck out of the mongrels who use language as a blunt weapon. We all have a responsibility as decent human beings to do just that.

gauloise said...

Annable was actually fired, too. Stop inflaming the gender war.

"Annable was at Disneyland with his family when he got the call that The Code was being picked up and he was being replaced."

Said it once on here and I'll say it again: MS is a horrible person to be on the same set with. Horrible to crew and co-stars. I can't see how she would manage a TV filming schedule when being on a film set with her was a living nightmare for many!
