Tricia13 said...

ladybaus said...

kevin kline

sandybrook said...

I was going to say MattyM

Hamid said...

Hope it's not Robert Redford.

Kimberly Davis said...

Jack Nicholson????

Tricia13 said...

Yeah Redford perm and a Director more so...
Matty M is so young still but Michael J Fox was diagnosed at like 30 I think

Kate K said...

I hope it's none of them.

sandybrook said...

WHEN I ASK YOU A QUESTION YOU FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT I EXPECT U TO ANSWER IT UNDERSTAND "DEREK" BABY??? DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR DICK?

ladybaus said...

Sandy stop ruining the comment section with your nasty remarks. I am not Derek-though you seem a little obsessed with him. I am an older woman that would like to guess blinds. Weirdo.

sandybrook said...

Of course you are of course you are...

SteveD said...

Maybe just drug after-effects, right?

notthisagain said...

wouldnt redford be 'permanent' A+ list?

notthisagain said...

shit, matthew mccoughney fits......noooooooo i hope its not him either.

i hope its No One.

sandybrook said...

Yes Redford would be permanent A list.

VDOVault said...

FYI the language you are using here perpetuates stigma.
It is has been 'diagnosed with' or ' is living with' or 'has' Parkinson's or dementia or whatever the relevant illnesses(es) is(are), not 'suffers from' or 'is suffering with'.

Aquagirl said...

Not alliterate.

Neil said...

@VDO I agree this is the current pc-friendly phrasing, but honestly.....do you really think a person who has Parkinson's is NOT suffering? Doesn't 'living with' kind of minimize what they are enduring?

We live with people, we live with family, we suffer from horrible, debilitating illnesses.

Don’t want it to be anyone but please not Matty M

Unknown said...

Redford would be A- list now. He just announced he was retiring from acting. I think its him.

Neil said...

I misinterpreted 'early stages' as 'early onset'. Agree with the Redford guess. :(

Bluestar said...

Don't do diseases unless said sufferer wants to do them. Like MS or whatever. Cruel is not fun.

Brayson87 said...

Like life isn't f*cked up enough without Parkinson's and the all the other stuff people get for no reason whatsoever. Imagine shaking so badly that it's too late to wrap your toes around the trigger.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Nick Nolte.

Aquagirl said...

I really don’t think that this should be a blind. Let whoever this is announce it if and when they are ready. My friend’s sister got diagnosed 2 years ago. She’s a nurse, so knows more than most how horrific it is. She has a wonderful husband & children, yet tried to take her own life. Luckily, she survived. But to reiterate the privacy point, I was asked not to mention this to anyone—neither the diagosis nor the ensuing turn of events. I haven’t in 2 years, and I won’t—it’s not my news to share.

hothotheat said...

@tricia I like the Matt guess better. Redford would hardly be 'early' onset.

parissucksliterally said...

@hothotheat, it says "early stages" not "early onset".

Dorvannnn said...

Some more alliterate Oscar winners/nominees: Alan Alda, Alan Arkin, Graham Greene, Hal Holbrook, Sylvester Stallone.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Stallone would be a good guess too.

Hamid said...

It doesn't say early onset, just early stages. Every disease has early stages.

annie roo said...

I think Nicholson has been ill for some time now. Parkinsons is not the worst way to go, my neighbour was active up until nearly the end.

Unknown said...

oh man it could be Stallone

alan alda

My grandma had Parkinson's and I'm pretty sure she suffered a lot. It's true that there's a lot worse that can happen to you, though. A neurologist once told me that if given the choice between Parkinson's, dementia and the disease Stephen Hawking suffered from (don't know how you call it in English and don't want to look it up as the mere thought of it terrifies me), he'd choose Parkinson's.

Hamid said...

Alan Alda already announced he's got Parkinson's.

Hamid said...

Jack Nicholson is NOT an alliterate name.

Jesus, I wish some of you would learn to read. The other day there was a blind about "a poor man's BTS" and someone literally posted "BTS?" What the fuck.

kelly said...

I was gonna say Stallone

Fairylights said...

Stallone is a good guess, there've been some studies that suggest that boxing can lead to damage related Parkinsons. Think Ali. I wonder how much he got knocked around doing the Rocky films.

Large Marge said...

Matt McM is ALL movie. So is Stallone. So is Kevin Kline. So is Daniel Day-Lewis (although he did say he was retiring).

Is Nick Nolte still A list? If so, then it could be him.

VDOVault said...

Alan Alda came out a few weeks ago to say he has Parkinson's which also prompted film critic Leonard Maltin to also reveal on Twitter that he too has been diagnosed with Parkinson's.

As I am incredibly involved with the dementia community & Parkinson's can cause dementia, I am going to decline guessing who this might be. To me it is up to the individual to reveal whether he or she has a disease diagnosis. I also never assume that someone is 'suffering' with a disease. Let an individual tell you whether he or she is 'suffering'. To use that language scares people from getting a good diagnosis as early as possible & the longer the delay, the fewer medical treatment options may be available as well as the fewer your options are for doing things like incapacity & estate planning.

BTW Ali probably also had CTE or chronic traumatic encephalopathy which is the form of dementia that comes from blows to the head (it has been diagnosed in athletes, military veterans, & some domestic violence victims. The Concussion Legacy Foundation studies CTE & works with a brain bank to solicit donations of human brains post death to see if an individual definitely had CTE as well as comparing brains with CTE to brains without CTE.

Sal T said...

I hope it’s not Matt Mc, I like him. I feel really sorry for whoever it is though.

Simon said...

I have a cousin with Parkinson’s. She is only in her early 50s with twin 8 year old daughters. It affects her gait at this point. Really sad situation for everyone afflicted with this disease. I wish whoever this is well.

Mango said...

@ Large Marge - Check out IMDB. MM has True Detective and another television show or two under his belt.

Tropicana said...

It wasn’t my comment but i still don’t understand what it means.

Ringo said...

If it is Redford I'll be sad for a while :(

Whoever it is, I feel bad for them.

twounstable2 said...

👍

Unknown said...

It's Alan Alda ...and it's not a blind.
it was headline news, a couple of months ago.
You need some new sources Enty

mooshki said...

I know Enty's rankings are always wonky, but how could you describe Robert Redford as anything other than "permanent A+?"

Star and Flurry said...

Alan Alda is not "mostly movie". This is not about him.

BRAD PITT said...

Alan Alda set to receive SAG lifetime achievement
