Blind Item #14 - Kindness

This actor has been acting for well over three decades and he came to it in his 30's. Usually a character actor he did land a pretty big supporting role in the first couple installments of what is a huge superhero franchise. He was shopping in LA and saw a stroller that got away from a mom rolling down the street. It was just like in a movie where it was speeding down a hill and headed for a car and our actor managed to catch up with it and save the baby.

Harrison Ford fits. Samuel L Jackson?

sandybrook said...

JK Simmons?

Tricia13 said...

He was more of a leading man. Not that well known as a character actir(Harrison Ford)

Lurky McLurkster said...

Tricia wins CDAN today

MDAnderson said...

Don Cheadle??

cheesegrater15 said...

JK Simmons is an even better fit. Good one, Sandy.

sandybrook said...

Thanks cheesegrater.

Sean said...

Greg Clark

Tricia13 said...

Wouldn’t be surprised if JK.. love that guy.

Notagoodscreenname said...

This sounds like Michael Rooker.

Florin said...

Jon Favreau? But as a fellow larger American, I have trouble seeing him rundown a stroller.

GlassLass said...

I would love to see Danny Devito chasing a stroller down a hill!

yepthatsme said...

Leslie Nielsen!

Humor Me said...

Who ever it is - good for him!

Brayson87 said...

"has been acting for well over three decades and he came to it in his 30's" sounds like someone who started in their 30's and is now in their 60's or 70's.

Brayson87 said...

Was DeVito in the first couple installments of a huge superhero franchise?

Notagoodscreenname said...

How else could that be interpreted? @Brayson

Tiredallthetime said...

Leslie Nielsen has been dead for years.

:| raven |: said...

Michael Caine?

HkyMom said...

@Brayson... didnt DeVito play the Joker in one of the Batman movies? Would that be a franchise?

GlassLass said...

He was the Penguin

Florin said...

@HkyMom: Penguin in the second one.

Tricia13 said...

He played The Penguin (might have been only 1 film though)

:| raven |: said...

Michael Caine was in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises.

Brayson87 said...

Yes I thought DeVito was one and done for Batman.

MountainMama said...

Whomever this 60 something year old man is I applaud him. The thought of Danny Devito chasing a stroller down a hill to save a baby had me spitting my red wine and diet coke out. That visual is hilarious.

Notagoodscreenname said...

Or maybe not. Guardians of the galaxy wasn’t a superhero movie/franchise per se.

Tricia13 said...

Hey maybe he stopped,dropped and rolled and got there first lol

Brayson87 said...

J.K. Simmons is the best fit, started in his 30's in the 80's, was in the first three Spider-Man installments, and still seems spry enough to outrun a stroller.

Aris said...

Totally agree with JK Simmons guess but I'm surprised A list or Oscar winner wasn't mentioned. However I've seen him, Samuel L Jackson and Harrison Ford at the Grove in the last year.

ET said...

Clark Gregg, +1 Sean.

Brayson87 said...

Clark Gregg is another good one except he was doing movies and tv in his 20's.

Flashy Vic said...

@:|raven|:.
Michael Caine was an actor from when he left the army at 20. He was part of the Swinging London scene in the early sixties and shared a flat with Terance Stamp - but not in that way, far from it. The flat was famous for the debauchery that went on in it. If Enty could get his hands on even half the stories of those two fucking their way through the young womanhood of the King's Road Chelsea in the sixties then this website might run for another few decades.

We need a like button!

Amartel said...

If it's JK they need to find a way to incorporate this incident into his Farmers ads.

Omg said...

Michael Keaton

gauloise said...

Ned Beatty -- character actor, big supporting role in the original Superman and Superman 2, acting for well over 3 decades

Robyn Stone said...

I like the JK Simmons answer - also, it's his birthday and mine today!

nancer said...

i liked michael douglas for this until i saw he started acting in his early 20's. and he's not a character actor.

j.k. simmons, great guess.

Lucky13 said...

JK Simmons also played Commissioner Jim Gordon in Justice League, btw

Beth said...

Michael Keaton

Gemma said...

Gene Hackman? Superman was the franchise.

Ice Angel said...

I adore JK Simmons! He is in the upcoming The Batman movie as well.

Brayson87 said...

Happy Birthday Robyn! :)

Gemma said...

No, Gene Hackman wasn't exactly a character actor. Ned Beatty is a much better guess, gauloise.

Trapped said...

Thank you to whomever it was that ran after the stroller, I know the mother was flabbergasted and overcome with pure joy he stopped that stroller

A. said...

This guess may not fit, but I'm enjoying the mental image in my head of imagining this is Sir Patrick Stewart.

Unknown said...

Michael Rooker

Notagoodscreenname said...

@unknown. Yep that was my guess too. It sounds so much like him except for the superhero franchise.

Freckles said...

J.K. Simmons is in good shape in Counterpart. I can see him doing this Michael Caine..plenty of creeper stories about him on here yuck

Post Cards From The Edge said...

Dammit Gemma you beat me to it! I immediately thought of him and his first credit was at age 31.

Angela said...

Michael Rooker. He got his start with Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer at 31, and it's one of those films you can't forget. The lack of details about the superhero franchise is because the two Guardians of the Galaxy "volumes" are directed by James Gunn. Rooker has actually starred in all four of his movies, and Enty doesn't want people to notice that the blind clashes with everything he's been tipped about regarding Gunn and his friends from another source.

lutefisk said...

I am going with Clark Gregg also. He was the first actor I thought of.

MostlyHarmless said...

Peter Dinklage :p

Notagoodscreenname said...

@angela. But I wouldn’t call GotG a *superhero* franchise. Although everything else sounds like Rooker. And I think he’d do something like this. As an aside, James Gunn has done more than 4 movies.

VDOVault said...

I think I like the Michael Rooker guess for this better than the JK Simmons guess, but glad the actor hustled it to save the little one!

BRAD PITT said...


harrison ford needs all the deflections he can get

Flame Princess said...

Clark Gregg? Phil Coulson from the Avengers? I can see it.

Temi said...

Michael Rooker - born in 1952 (!), acted in the theatre scene in Chicago but didn't break into movies until 1987 - aged 35.

Guardians of the Galaxy v. 1 and 2. And he's been in a lot of stuff.

Notagoodscreenname said...

@Temi. 1955 not 52

Samuel motherfucking Jackson, bitch.

Aquagirl said...

I love the idea of Danny DeVito rolling down the hill. But honestly, it might be any or none of these guesses. I’m just glad it happened!

@Brayson, not to get too personal, but is Robyn the person with whom you spent NYE’s ? Sorry to ask, but after all it is a gossip site 😉. Sounds like you’re very happy & content. Congratulations!

ron hobbs said...

Obviously JK Simmons. Thought him immediately.

KW. said...

Clark Gregg

Freebird said...

Lololololololol!!!!

Hugo Pedersen said...

@yepthatsme excellent Naked Gun reference!

Robyn Stone said...

Thanks, Brayson!

Depeche Model said...

Is nobody going to comment on Mountain mama drinking red wine with Diet Coke???????

Must just be me then.

MountainMama said...

Depeche Model, I heard Juicy Joe talking about drinking it on the NJ Housewives years ago. Yesterday I had a glass of diet coke poured and my husband brought me a glass of Pinot Noir. So I drank half the glass of wine and topped it off with the diet coke. I loved it! Will definitely have it again.

LydiaJosepg said...

Didn't he also pull three people from a burning car?
Tune in tomorrow, some celebrity will rescue a drowning puppy!
I mean it. Really.

Depeche Model said...

Oh my....well, each to their own I suppose. Just make sure it's not a Chateau Margaux or a Lafite

Notagoodscreenname said...

@lydiajosepg. Who pulled 3 people from a burning car??

Lisa said...

Guardians is a franchise, guys. Come on- it's part of the MCU.

JK Simmons is an Oscar winning actor, that's a whole lot more than just a "character actor".

It's Rooker.

@lisa. But would you say GotG is about superheroes? That’s my question. Not whether it was a franchise.

Ectodoobie said...

Gary Oldman.

Born in 58, breakout role Sid and Nancy in 86. Commissioner Gordon in Batman Begins franchise. Iconic character actor.

Notagoodscreenname said...

Also you can be an Oscar winning character actor. Supporting actor category.

Caitlin Patla said...

Hahah Tricia 🤣 thank you for that image

Angela said...

@Notagoodscreenname

GotG is Marvel, and Enty tends to put everything Marvel under the "superheroes" umbrella.
James Gunn has written a few scripts, but he has only directed four films – Slither, Super (which was literally a film about superheroes, by the way), GotG, and GotG vol. 2. The Dawn of the Dead remake was Zack Snyder and the two Scooby-Doos were Raja Gosnell.

Notagoodscreenname said...

@angela. Gotcha, thanks!

LooksLikeCRicci said...

I LOOOOOOOVE the Clark Gregg guess. Seems like a very nice man who would absolutely do such a thing.

JK Simmons is also a fantastic guess. I've heard nothing but great things about him as a person.

@Flashy Vic

+1

Turitella said...

The thought of Danny DeVito chasing a buggy down a hill and rescuing a baby is heroically hysterical! LofreakinL!

JR Brantley said...

Elliot Ness!
