Four For Friday - Kissing The Ring

Back in the day, this actor was getting close to A+ list. All of you know him. He played a character almost everyone knows. He had his chances at being a lead in some big movies and did OK. The thing is though, he forget where he came from and din't pay enough respect or do what he was supposed to do in finding new talent. Our actor was recruited by the disgraced director and the A+ list producer. He was one of their party boys back in the day who made them very happy so he got the roles and kept getting them. Over time though, he became less grateful for their help and less willing to find them new "talent" so to speak. He thought he could keep working just based on his name. Nope. Once you get into bed with these guys, literally and figuratively, you have to play by their rules. That means you go to certain events and you bring a handful of new young male talent for everyone to enjoy. When he stopped doing this, his career went in the tank. Oh sure, he got to keep his place in a couple franchises, but they are not big roles. Being the lead of big movies was reduced to being the lead in movies with $1M budgets. Apparently he finally saw the light and brought the powers that be a series of fresh young men eager to please. The next thing you know he gets a job out of the blue in a medium he doesn't really ever work and got a huge amount of money for doing so. Now, he is about to line up a deal to headline a movie again.

James Marsden? Went from film to Cable's Westworld?

Sara, Making It Work said...

James Marsden and yes, we've had a similar blind before. I guess this is the sequel.

sandybrook said...

C. Thomas Howell?

Sara, Making It Work said...

That is intriguing, @Sandybrook, but who is the disgraced director?
If Marsden, it's the usual suspects, so to speak.

MontanaMarriott said...

Chris Pine could work too since he is now filming a TV mini series, with the character everyone knows as Captain Kirk?

p keel said...

Ray liotta

hunter said...

Disgraced director is obviously Singer.

sandybrook said...

He worked a lot early with Spielberg Sara. That covers the A+ producer part at least.

MDAnderson said...

Agree with Marsden

Wendy O said...

Seann William Scott - sounds more like him

Unknown said...

Marsden was close to A+? What character did he play that everyone knows? This seems like someone bigger.

Jon said...

Brendan Fraser?

MJ said...

Disgraced director Singer, the actor possibly Marsden..but the A+ producer?

notthisagain said...

Taylor Lautner

notthisagain said...

disgraced director Bryan Singer
A+ producer Ryan Murphy

p keel said...

I'm going with vigo mortenson

gadfly said...

Agree with @Wendy O. Seann William Scott.

MJ said...

@nothisgain i tought Murphy,too that would be in his " style" everyone must follow his desiderata, in EVERY ways. He is worse than Singer, in more ways

Pamela Foti said...

Could this be any more disgusting ?

notthisagain said...

I wish Ryan Murphy and Bryan Singer would BOTH fall

Sara, Making It Work said...

Oh yeah, Seann William Scott is a good guess. Changing my guess. ☺
Everyone knows Stiffler.

SteveD said...

More like kissing the O-ring, right?

DDonna Tarttty said...

If Seann William Scott, "job out of the blue in a medium he doesn't really ever work" would be action star in "Lethal Weapon" TV series, I guess. Then the movie "Bloodline" is currently on the film festival circuit. Fits.

News said...

i could read it with some many different actors, it is valid for most, and for eomen too.
Even Hidds and Branagh.

Fuchsia said...

Someone from Lord of the Rings? Elijah Wood or Orlando Bloom?

Aquagirl said...

Yes, you could be eating movie theater ๐Ÿฟwith fake butter while watching a movie involving this trio.

hothotheat said...

Singer is not yet disgraced as far as I know. He still gets work, and no one has sued or filed a police report.

Murph said...

Renner?

Double R said...

Nick Hoult.

Disgraced director is Singer.

He just got a Hulu show.

There's pics of him on Singer's jet with a bunch of barely legal twinks.

And some may say Singer isn't disgraced yet...but it's widely know what he does.

Virginia Mayer said...

Alec Baldwin...?

steeze said...

@Fuchsia Elijah Wood is more likely to whistle-blow this kind of behavior in Hollywood than to partake in it. Right? Right?

orangesoda said...

The only guesses that make sense are Sean William Scott or Nick Hoult. The rest have never been close to A+ list.

notthisagain said...

i change my guess to seann william scott

character everybody knows - stiffler of american pie franchise
other franchises besides american pie - ice age, super troopers (does that count?)

just got the lethal weapon tv role, "The next thing you know he gets a job out of the blue in a medium he doesn't really ever work and got a huge amount of money for doing so. Now, he is about to line up a deal to headline a movie again."
not sure about the movie

bryan singer = 'disgraced director'
ryan murphy = A+ producer

Your Mother said...

Stiffler, yup n they ALL blow whistles ๐Ÿ˜‰

BRAD PITT said...

He played a character almost everyone knows = James Marsden

disgraced director = bryan singer

a job in a medium he doesn't really ever work = Sonic the Hedgehog

Pugmumma0 said...

The title made me think of Elijah Wood..

B626 said...

I think SWS is talented and watchable
I hope he gets back up there

T. W. said...

I know Sean William Scott. I don't know James Marsden.

Kris Taylor said...

Jackman?

Ian McKellen? Poss?

Orville said...

This blind is definitely Seann William Scott on datalounge the gay men there swear he is a closeted gay man himself. Seann was involved with Bryan Singer and the other man is obviously Kevin Spacey. Seann career went downhill for a while but he is back on tv.

Shaddup Mimsey said...

Originally thought Lautner, but yeah it’s Sean William Scott

dtfan said...

FFS News are you still here infesting every post you can find with your bizarre obsession with telling lies about Hiddleston and Brannagh?

I was just reading the thread about you on Datalounge. You are literally a psychopath.

Fuchsia said...

I would hope so! He seems like a decent guy... it was a little weird though when he made those comments in an interview about pedophilia being rampant in Hollywood, but then backtracked afterwards saying he never personally knew of anything like that happening. ๐Ÿค”

Wonder Bread said...

seann william scott "out of the blue" - cop in lethal weapon. bloodline- horror is new genre for him

henry thomas. Elliot in ET, job out of the blue.. House on haunted hill??

Sal T said...

I originally thought Jude Law, with the kiss the ring title referring to him having played the Pope. I think Enty would’ve said foreign born though and it’s probably going to be someone younger than Law.

Matt Theman said...

Matt Bomer, medium he doesn't usually work = Broadway (BOYS IN THE BAND)
Murphy

atd8vii said...

Definitely SWS. Don't forget he was in an episode of Chad's World for DEN and that ties in with Singer, Rector and the rest of those animals.
