Today's Blind Items - The Backpage King

Backpage doesn't exist any longer which must make things tough for this foreign born B+ list actor who is an Emmy nominee/winner and a Grammy winner/nominee. He once starred in a very hit show that is set to have a reboot. One person who is not thrilled with the reboot is his wife. She knows about the strip clubs and that particular stripper he has a fondness for. When that stripper is not working he doesn't have any problems with a replacement though. Things are so bad that when he tours, his wife goes or else she thinks he won't ever come back home. She is convinced he will just run off with whatever stripper catches his fancy in some town.

The strippers are one thing, but lately he has set his eyes on a co-star from a television show in which he stars. Apparently the co-star landed a movie so our actor called in every favor he could to land a part in the movie as her lover. He couldn't stand the thought of her having a sex scene with someone other than him.

This one has the wife super worried. The strippers are one thing, but the young beautiful actress she really thinks is someone the husband would dump her for.

The show reboot hints that it is someone from Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

sandybrook said...

David Boreanez?

sandybrook said...

We think alike LadySabreX

EddyWouldRide said...

Boreanez is American born and does he have a grammy nom?

sandybrook said...

Jessica Pare for his co-star he's chasing?

LooksLikeCRicci said...

I don't think Boreanaz has a Grammy nom. Just saying.

roque said...

Just checked imdb- no grammy nod or nom.

sandybrook said...

Missed that part went to the reboot.

EddyWouldRide said...

Keith Urban?

Moose said...

They just announced a Frasier reboot, but I can't think of any male from Frasier who would be foreign born, and a B+

J said...

The horrible thing is how she is prevented somehow from divorcing him and getting on with her life.

John the peon said...

I'm just going to throw out the name Anthony Stewart head

sandybrook said...

I looked he doesn't fit the awards part, I can't find any reboots with anyone who fits all 3 criteria or 4 looking at wife.

ToobisTheZebra said...

This is a touring musician... hmmm...

Aris said...

Tony Head doesn't have any Emmy or Grammy nominations.

Liz Pop said...

I'm just curious as to what people are doing now that Backpage and CL personals are gone.

Brayson87 said...

The reboot sounds like the perfect way to sh!t all over the Buffy legacy, good luck with all that.

Brayson87 said...

@Liz, somehow I'm not thinking "changing their ways" ;)

Ophelia said...

Is LL Cool J married?

cheesegrater15 said...

Julian McMahon from Charmed? Or is he not a musician?

AJ said...

A touring musician who currently stars in a show and once starred in a big hit show that's being reboot?

Tricia13 said...

Julian McMahon/Virginia Gardner-Runaways is show and Monster party the film

Tricia13 said...

Not sure he was nommed for Grammy though?

gadfly said...

McMahon - no Grammy. Donald Glover/Childish Gambino has Emmy/Grammy noms, but not foreign born, nor any reboot.

kiki71 said...

Think LL Cool J guess may be right as read there wS a SWAT every reboot in the works as of last year. He fits and is married

Sharpie said...

LL was born on Long Island so not foreign born

I'm thinking that this may not be a musician, but rather a comic actor who also tours as a comedian. Haven't landed on one yet, but just throwing it out there.

loveless said...

I want to make Rick Springfield work. Reboot?

MDAnderson said...

Jemaine Clement?? Flight of the Conchords. Now on Legion. Aubrey plaza for the costar

SillyWhabbit said...

Flight of the Concords is rebooting, isn't it?

Sharper Teeth said...

@MDAnderson please, no! Not him! I'll believe anything about any celeb, but I want him and Brett to stay pure.

just sayin' said...

Seriously, Sandybrook, I'd love the name of your plastic surgeon. I think you look fabulous. 40 years younger, at least.

Sharper Teeth said...

is Nip/Tuck getting a reboot?

ToobisTheZebra said...

@MDAnderson for the win
Jemaine Clement
Foreign born
Hit series being rebooted: Flight of the Conchords
FOC touring currently (concert special just announced for HBO)
7-time Emmy nominee
Grammy-award winner
Series currently filming: What We Do in the Shadows

Versus said...

@MDAnderson

I think it's Bret McKenzie. Backpage King could be a play on Boom King which is what he calls himself.

Magnolia Rattus said...

My first thought was Kelsey Grammer because of that reboot. He was born in the Virgin Islands and he loves strippers.

Wayj said...

Jemaine and Aubrey were in an movie earlier this year https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6518270/

But I really hope it's not him

Ophelia said...

Grammar was my first thought too but the awards didn't fit plus I consider him higher than B

gadfly said...

Jackie van Beek the actress, new movie that Jemaine and she are in is Breaker Upperers. Good work, MDAnderson!

Wayj said...

@gadfly, JVB is 42, compared to Jemaine's 44, not totally "younger" actress

Magnolia Rattus said...

Since I have no personal horse in this race, I do hope it's him. They would be my favourite celebrity couple ever.

Barbotus said...

The Clement guess does meet a lot of the criteria, but I just can't see anyone calling FOC a "very hit show".

kiki71 said...

Ah bonehead me missed FOREIGN BORN. Was on my cell phone in line at the DMV ugh.

Versus said...

FOTC had high ratings. I don't think the woman is Jackie van Beek. Funny lady but not exactly young or beautiful.

@wayj, true.

autohitter said...

Natasia Demetriou stars with Clement in both the series What We Do in the Shadows and a film in production, The Festival...

Sara, Making It Work said...

In no way was FOC a very hit show.

However, Jemaine fits in every other way, with Aubrey as the TV/ movie costar.

Disappointing that he's such a cheater.

just sayin' said...

Jemaine Clement ticks all of the boxes -- hit tv show that's rebooting, he "tours", has grammies, was in a recent tv show, and has an upcoming movie, "The Festival". The only show collaboration I can find between Jemaine and one of the actresses in "The Festival" is an episode of "Inside Amy Schumer" called "Psychopath Test". Claudia O'Doherty was a writer on that.

Sara, Making It Work said...

Although.
Flight of the Concords might have been a huge hit down under. So, sure. It's gotta be him.

just sayin' said...

If you loved it, "Flight of the Conchords" was huge. I have one of their songs on my phone, "Tears of a Rapper" (aka "Hurt Feelings). THE BEST!

Trace said...

"What We Do In The Shadows" was alright. I mean in an, "it's 1am, I'm stoned and nothing else is on" kinda way.

just sayin' said...

Oops, good catch, autohitter. So there we go.

Sharper Teeth said...

@just sayin' the day after my birthday is not my birthday, mum.

gauloise said...

FOC is one of the most iconic shows of the naughties, it really defines the era. Maybe you have to be of a certain generation, but this was THE show of the time.

Versus said...

Why is everyone so sure it's not Bret? It could just as easily be the Boom King.

just sayin' said...

+1 sharper teeth! And have you ever been told that you look like a llama, lol, which Jemaine sort of does.

Paige said...

Steven Van Zandt?

Sara, Making It Work said...

It's not Bret, because he doesn't have a current TV series or any recent movies, let alone starring the same actress.
But it still is likely a reference to the duo.

Barbotus said...

@gauloise All of that may be true, but that doesn't make it a hit. And certainly not a "very hit". While this blind may very well be about Jemaine Clement, here's some data regarding the historical ratings of FOTC.

The viewership for HBOs original series in 2009 shows FOTC in dead last.

"True Blood" (5.003 million)
"Hung" (3.617 million)
"Entourage"(3.460 million)
"Big Love" (2.320 million)
"Curb Your Enthusiasm" (1.518 million)
"The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" (1.268 million)
"Bored to Death" (0.948 million)
"Eastbound & Down" (0.925 million)
"Flight of the Conchords" (0.847 million)

Of 64 cable series tracked in the linked article, FOTC finished 60th.

just sayin' said...

Every clue fits Jemaine Clement, aside from the subjective descriptor of "huge". I'm gonna guess it's because Enty's a huge fan of the show, which reaffirms my impression that he's got great taste.

Sharper Teeth said...

It’s definitely a cult hit

JL said...

Ha ha. Perfect.

Disgusted said...

If it's Jemaine, I'm brokenhearted.
