Four For Friday - Tricia 13 Blind Item

So this is one of many Epic nights I’ve had the privilege of having. ... It happened in my original city of NYC which still is  a a fabulous place for spotanenous parties.
I am there because I was involved with a Theatre Company that boasts some of the biggest names you know and see on screen /stage all time. We were all there for a Benefit reading of a now (very famous Writer/Director). The party was non -disclosed until I had my conversation with an actor and he essentially brought me and my friends/entourage to an iconic Playwrights loft with people and celebrity that spanned the spectrum... We still talk about it and though some are no longer here.. it was a night to remember .

In the effort to keep it tight- the players that night are as follows:
Mr 1) Flirty Former A list TV actor from several network shows. He was also a leading male in a cult fave film(one of mine anyway).He was single at the time or dating that former  foreign born MTV personality.They married and It didn’t last and I know why-(he’s a flirt) yet he’s the reason we were invited to The Iconic playwrights  apartment (killer pad btw). We chatted and I said “so you going to ———/////party ? He said yeah ! Follow us  in a cab. We did (naturally)  He’s a flirt.
Probably why they not together/divorced.

We arrived Man2)There we were greeted by the charming and very gracious Permanent A list playwright-his most notable work was likely that amazing piece adapted to film starring the triple threat actor whose an A list Dick and America’s Sweetheart for awhile.... Prelude to downfall.
Man3) a very mysterious looking young guy with good looks and a bohemian cap. You know him now from  both film/tv (and Theatre if you run in those circles)and he is an excellent actor. Had a High profile relationship and now has kids.This night he was an up and comer starving actor and we connected. Exchanged numbers and had dinner/dates in the future -but I had no idea how far he would go ,just knew he called me post party from a Brooklyn number where he was crashing and asked me to dinner(I declined). We met not long ago but he was with the female1) foreign born A list AA nominee still and I didn’t take that Vespa ride.

Next person to walk in was Man3)an Actor(working on his Directorial film debut. He was coming off a hugely successful film where he got the attention he never got from his TV show or even his famous mom/dad. Talented guy., but lacks in the personality department. That’s “just reality”.Love the  90s It film he was in with the former It girl as well as the film he was in process of directing... it was shooting in NYC and he showed with that fabulous actress from an acting family who is/was extremely shy, and very humble. We talked about her son. Her work, her family and the party that was unfolding around in us which seemed bigger life.  Grew more so when
Man 4) walked in with then fiancée.I had met him  as he was on the Artistic Board of these same theatre  folks, and he was always guarded., but charismatic. Liked his drink, his — well that.
Iconic family, unfortunate destiny. The night was just beginning

I always look for Tricia's response for the answer but this time that is not going to happen! Thanks for the blind Tricia. I do not have the time to figure it out now but I will come back later to read the guesses!

sandybrook said...

Jared Leto is the dick. Ben Stiller for the first actor

Glitter said...

JFK, Jr. for #4

MontanaMarriott said...

Was the permanent A list playwright David Mamet?

Farmgirl said...

Actually her numbers are repeated. The first Man3 is LS
Second could be Ben Stiller

cheesegrater15 said...

A list dick is Kevin Costner.

rosie riveter said...

TRICIAAAAA! XOXOXO

cheesegrater15 said...

If the playwright is Mamet.

Farmgirl said...

+1 David Mamet

Glengarry glenross
Kevin spacey

Brayson87 said...

The party don't start til Tricia walks in! :)

MontanaMarriott said...

Former IT girl Cameron Diaz? 90's movie Something about Mary?

AListDiva said...

#2 Could be Jared Leto, #3 is Liev Schreiber, #4 (2nd #3) sounds like Ben Stiller and sadly #5 is JFK Junior. Not sure who #1 is, could be Jim Carey?

MDAnderson said...

Man 2 Alec Baldwin??

Farmgirl said...

Or maybe Alec Bladwin

cheesegrater15 said...

Makes more sense. Glengarry Glen Ross is more well-known that The Untouchables.

Unknown said...

If the playwright is Mamet, the Dick is probably Baldwin

sandybrook said...

Yeah the lady guy is JFK Jr and his future wife for sure.

sandybrook said...

* last*

Chillax said...

Is CBK in this Carolyn Bessette at the end??I want to hear more about her! JFK jr wasn’t known for being a huge boozer was he??

gauloise said...

No 3 is def Ben Stiller, he had that TV show that was critically well received but cancelled, the film was "Reality" bites, and the directorial debut is Zoolander. He is not happy in person

sandybrook said...

One last shot the star who invited them was Steven Webber the playwright is David Mamet because Alec Baldwin is the dick who starred in Glengarry Glen Ross. JFK Jr is the last guy with fiancee Carolyn. Last guy could be Live but am not sure hr lived in NY then or not. Ben Stiller is the flirt.

yepthatsme said...

Why dont we have a live reveal today only? REVEAL REVEAL REVEAL REVEAL!

sandybrook said...

*Liv*

Notagoodscreenname said...

Is the first A list actor just a flirt? Or a cheater?

Chillax said...

sandybrook said...

Man 3 is Ben Stiller. Man 1 is Steven Webber. Mamet is the host. (Glenngary Glen Ross starred the dick Alec Baldwin.)

gauloise said...

Do you mean Jake Weber for the flirt? He was married to a MTV personality from the UK

MDAnderson said...

Agree with Steve Webber for 1

cadencej said...

the theater company is naked angels
playwright is craig lucas- play "prelude to a kiss" made into a film with alec baldwin and meg ryan ("america's sweetheart")
stumped on Man 1. the only female foreign born MTV personality (or VJ at least) i can find from that era is daisy fuentes, but "MTV personality" could also be someone from the first couple seasons of the real world. cult film could be Dazed and Confused? but not quite enough to go on.
Man 2 fits Ethan Hawke, part of that scene at that time, high profile relationship and kids with Uma Thurman. (not sure who the lady with the Vespa is)
Man 3 is Ben Stiller, movie is Reality Bites, it girl Winona Ryder
Man 4 is JFK Jr, was on the board of Naked Angels.

sandybrook said...

No gauloise I meant Steven.he had multiple TV shows.

Tricia13 said...

There’s another part coming and I’ll let Enty reveal it:)
I will say guesses are pretty impressive by some 🤟💫
I’ll do this though -breaking it down with initials and I know you fine folks got this!
Mr.1 -TV actor with a huge network and other network successes. Leading man in cult film(I loved) from the decade(WS)
Mr.2-playwright whose most notable work was transformed from stage to screen with same Triple threat actor starring.His assholery is also an award winner. (Nominitials needed lol)His costar from film was America’s sweetheart for a while -Ms 1(optional)-RM
Mr 3- TRiple threat talent-in a long term relationship until recently-butgeas up and coming hungry actor then. Very interesting dude.(RD)
Mr4-Actor /Director who started in TV and was off a huuuuge film which is many’s fave-iconic of the decade. Dick.(RB)(bonus in the film is one of the nicest guys I’ve met in biz and (Enty doesn’t it seems lol)and an IT Girl (RW). With Him was his costar in his directorial debut-a film I love. She is from an acting family and awesome person and is now an AA nominee (TR)
Mr5- well nothing needed there:)))

gauloise said...

Milo Ventimiglia for the mysterious guy in the cap? Vespa could be referring to being Italian;

He does TV Movies and theatre

gadfly said...

Let's clarify - asssuming iconic playwright is David Mamet:

1. Flirty former A list TV actor, several network shows. In a cult favorite movie. Dated or dating at the time a foreign born MTV personality who he eventually married and later divorced. (No guess on this one.....)

2. Playwright adapted notable work to film starring Man 2 - triple threat, a dick and, for a while, America's Sweetheart before downfall. (Guess: Alec Baldwin - starred in a couple of Mamet films).

3. Man 3 young guy, unknown at the time. Excellent actor, since had high profile relationship and kids. Now possibly dating foreign born Oscar nominee actress. (Liev Schrieber, high profile with Naomi Watts - not sure of new actress)

4. Actor/director. Had TV show, famous parents, "reality" comment. Moved on to direct film with former It Girl. Showed up with actress from acting family who was shy, humble and had a child. (Ben Stiller - famous parents, directed and starred in Reality Bites, It Girl -Wynona Ryder)

5. Man 5 with fiancee. (my guess JFK, Jr. loved his drink, iconic family, Board member of Irish Arts Center)

MDAnderson said...

2. Prelude to a kiss with Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin

gauloise said...

@Brayson yes, that is what I meant to type...I thought it said guy 3 was Weber, but I read it wrong and then I typed Jake instead of Steve cause my brain short circuiting :)

sandybrook said...

Gadfly has most of it in order and set up correctly and Steven Webber is the guy with multiple TV shows and single White Female as the cult favorite movie. (#1)

Chillax said...

Please spill all CBK details! Nothing too small or insignificant. They were both gone too soon and her forgotten twin.

Farmgirl said...

TR is Patricia Arquette - they were workingon Flirting with Disaster an amazing flick!

Shaddup Mimsey said...

@Farmgirl, I LOVE Flirting with Disaster. Such a funny movie with great actors.

MDAnderson said...

Now that’s a real four for Friday. Loved this!!

Xoxoxoxooxo💃❤️

Tricia13 said...

Thank you:) Hopefully we can do Part 2 Monday with reveals from today(asking the big guy for permission:))

cadencej said...

Mr.1 -TV actor with a huge network and other network successes. Leading man in cult film(I loved) from the decade(WS)

as someone guessed above, this could be Steven Weber. he fits the TV piece and was married to the LA bureau chief for MTV news in the 90s. not sure what the "cult film" would be? he was in flamingo kid as well as single white female (90s), not sure either of those qualify as "cult"?

Mr.2-playwright whose most notable work was transformed from stage to screen with same Triple threat actor starring.His assholery is also an award winner. (Nominitials needed lol)His costar from film was America’s sweetheart for a while -Ms 1(optional)-RM

this is definitely craig lucas. not david mamet. his biggest hit was prelude to a kiss which was also made into a film w alec baldwin (triple threat) and meg ryan, ms 1.

Mr 3- TRiple threat talent-in a long term relationship until recently-butgeas up and coming hungry actor then. Very interesting dude.(RD)

i said ethan hawke before, but i now think this is liev schreiber - RD standing for ray donovan- he was doing indies in new york in the 90s, married naomi watts (foreign born AA winner/nominee) and they have two kids. they split recently and he rides a vespa. ("interesting" is an interesting word for him. i know a lotta folks with a lot of personal experience with him who might use other words).

Mr4-Actor /Director who started in TV and was off a huuuuge film which is many’s fave-iconic of the decade. Dick.(RB)

this is ben stiller/reality bites

(bonus in the film is one of the nicest guys I’ve met in biz and (Enty doesn’t it seems lol)

steve zahn was in R B and is famously a sweetheart. could also be ethan hawke i guess?

and an IT Girl (RW).

winona ryder

With Him was his costar in his directorial debut-a film I love. She is from an acting family and awesome person and is now an AA nominee (TR)

patricia arquette (true romance-initials)

Mr5- well nothing needed there:)))

JFK jr.

Farmgirl said...

Agreed!

BeepBeep said...

Triple Threat Actor RD - Robert Downey Jr?

Rob Zero said...

RD = Ray Donovan

Max Power said...

I love Tricia on here, but this seems dangerously close to a Dancing Boy blind. Or am I just a dick? That's certainly possible, too.

David Howes said...

Back in the day I think has to be the 90's.

Anyway, Tricia 13 always seemed like an, 'Up Town Girl.'

(Now, I have that song stuck in my head!)

Shaddup Mimsey said...

I'm just glad to see that none of Tricia's troll/haters have shown up. I'm actually shocked.

Tricia13 said...

Haha David -correct decade:)
But I’ve always been more of a downtown girl, tbh.
This took place at a building called the Printing House in the Greenwich Village. Not giving much away-just locale....
As for Dancing Boy Blinds -I rarely guessed them but I certainly never criticized them or the experience lived through by the author., rather I respect their effort and their share.We aren’t here parading as Pulitzer Prize Auteurs, simply friends and fans of the this site and many of us have stories to tell.

Looking forward to your Blind Item,Max👍💫🤟

Max Power said...

Hahahahaha! My life is not nearly exciting enough to have a Blind to share. Or at least, not one that includes anyone famous anyways. :-)

Tricia13 said...

Famous/non famous -all tales are good ones in a way(just Enty devotes the site the former lol). Bet you have one and don’t even know it!!💫
Happy weekend All:)

Brayson87 said...

Happy weekend! :)

Tink said...

Tricia,New York stories from the 90’s are so good. So glad I got to be in NYC then. So many rad nights that just happened. I remember eating at Bobby’s a few days after JFK passed. Seeing all the flowers for them. So sad.Let’s go part 2!

Tricia13 said...

🤟

Tink said...

Bubby’s

Tricia13 said...

Harvey Keitels face... and many others .
Great brunch

Tricia13 said...

Fave*

OB said...

This is a super fun blind and it's great to see the crew at work with their guesses, since as usual I depend on everyone to figure out what I can't.

Thanks, Tricia!

MDAnderson said...

They closed the Bubbys in Dumbo near where I lived in late 2000s. So sad. Best sour cream pancakes ever.

Tricia13 said...

Dumbo=fab💫
Thanks OB :)

Unknown said...

Weber makes sense for Mr1. Can't imagine anyone else fitting, honestly.
Think the rest of the guesses are correct too, including Schreiber.

sandybrook said...

OK believe it or not when I saw the caption of this blind, I thought Entern had dirt on Tricia. But not on her. 😃 this was a good one Tricia, looking forward to part deux and what happened with you and Steven Webber after he got you home!!😂😂😂😂or not.

DK said...

You went to David Mamet's where Alec Baldwin was there, Liev Schreiber was the up and comer boho (I worked as a casting assistant in the 90s and he was a sweetheart back then), Ben Stiller was the tool..I'm lost on the drunky drunkerson

Cat Owner said...

Skeptical that Mamet is the correct star playwright, mostly because of the description of being "charming and very gracious." That COULD be right, but -- hmmmmm; not intuitive. Also, Mamet is associated with the Atlantic Theater Company, which means William H. Macy, Felicity Huffman, Clark Gregg and Stanley Tucci (among others), who don't seem to be present. (All incredible artists, and steadily employed, but not huge movie star names.) But then few names of back-in-the-day "iconic playwright" spring to mind like Mamet. So. I'm stumped.

Freckles said...

Is there more to the story that will be posted later?

Nefarious P. said...

Long time lurker here and you’re killing me,Tricia. Someone I know used to pick up men at the Printing House gym. I spent most of the 90s at the Odeon drinking with art peeps, or I’d have some ideas. I’ll say, not Mamet.

MattDaddy said...

Can I have Tricia's life, please? Thanks in advance.

Vita said...

Fun blind, Tricia! Looking forward to the rest of the story!

I think cadencej got it, but definitely Ethan Hawke instead of steve zahn. I believe Tricia has always had fond words in his defense whenever Enty makes a jab.

Great job on the guesses!

rosie riveter said...

Oh, they're here...
More likely their head exploded when they saw the title of this blind.

#RIP
#WE'LLFUCKINGMISSYOU

plot said...

@Max

No, you are right. It's a terribly written BI, didn't finish it, and REALLY don't believe it (just like anything by Dancing Boy.)

plot said...

Oh! And about Alec Baldwin, he was never in the stage production of Glengarry, only the film. Mamet wrote the role for the film only, and specifically for Baldwin.

plot said...

@Matt

Oh you can have her life! STudio 54 in the 70s, Red Phone in the 80s, and now other icons added for the 90s. You can envision it all just like "she" does.

Sd Auntie said...

Me too!!!♥️ JFK Jr!! I would have fainted in his mere presence!!!

Tricia13 said...

Thanks Vita! Matt🤟Good times indeed:)

BestMan said...

Classy as always. I agree completely.

cadencej said...

you guys i promise the playwright is craig lucas and not mamet, the film of his play "prelude to a kiss" was huge in the late 80s, starred alec baldwin who others have guessed and meg ryan who was the only actress referred to as "america's sweetheart" back then, and tricia says "prelude to downfall." folks are guessing mamet because he's one of the only playwrights dating back to that era famous to the general public (and who also works in film) but lucas was iconic in the theater world back then and that movie was huge.

cadencej said...

also hi tricia, i bet we know some people in common ;)

Anonymous said...



I have a fun blind, too. From my groupie days.
How do we submit them?
Someone might enjoy it, if they liked arena rock.

No idea who Tricia's people are, but it sounds like a good time was had by all. It's great to have cool memories.

Tricia13 said...

We certainly do:)
Good guess 🤟and yep.

Tricia13 said...

Entlaywer90210@yahoo.com:)
💫

Tricia13 said...

Thank you and likewise:)

Tricia13 said...

Odeon wa the best.
Sat next to Vincent Gallo there around this same time period and was laser eyed X-ray(ed) strange fellow.
His future films had nothing on his IRL weirdness

Kimberlini said...

#2 Playwright of Prelude to a Kiss is Craig Lucas. Film version starred Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan. Alec also performed in the stage version.

Jennacheryl said...

I feel like downtown Julie Brown is the foreign born mtv vj

AppleThief4Elliot said...

Playwrite might be Aaron Sorkin whose A Few Good Men was adapted to film with Jack Nicholson.

Brenda said...

#1 Timothy Adams & Daisy Fuentes
