Blind Item #2

This foreign born A- list dual threat actor who once starred in a soon to be defunct hit pay cable show and has some other television hits and a big movie coming out soon had been closeted. I guess he just blew that door wide open.

Richard Madden/GOT

He is so odd looking

JT0130 said...

That seems about right since those pics came out with that guy from that awful HBO show that made no sense. I forgot the name but he played some special needs character that came off rather offensive. It might hurt Richard's chance for playing Bond if he is still interested. That GQ profile earlier this year implied he is a ladies man but that could be a cover or he is bi-sexual. Anyway who cares, come out and be happy Robb Stark!

JT0130 said...

Opps... I was confusing Brandon Flynn with someone else. Brandon Flynn is not that guy I was thinking off.

CCgirl said...

Has ENTY ever implied that Richard was closeted on here before? Or is he now just suddenly in the know? lol

Seems to be the first I have heard about it on here. Not surprising though. Just of all the countless closeted entertainers referenced by ENTY on here I just do not remember Richard being mentioned.

He can kiss a franchise career over now though. The weird thing is that they were staring at the cameras like whatever. I wondered if it was hype for the new Elton John movie.

But, living with an open and out gay man.....think the damage is done at least with 007 franchise.

Vita said...

He's a good actor, charming, will be interesting if this does blow his chances or not. By the time they make a casting decision on the Bond after next Bond, a half dozen other names will pass in and out of the running anyway. I don't see this affecting other work.

JT0130 said...

+1 @vita -- the way he stepped out of closet seems to be sending the message is not interested in the hyper masculine franchise roles like Bond or the super hero roles. Or maybe he is sensing a shift in attitude at the studios towards casting gay men in those roles and he is making it known that he is available.

kiki71 said...

He is too impish looking for Bond for me. HIs features.

JL said...

Will this blow Bond for him? I never wanted him as Bond to begin with.

CCgirl said...

Yah. He is short and impish. I have always seen Henry Cavill as the next Bond anyways which is why I think he left Superman.

And, I do remember ENTY mentioning Richard now that I think about it....ENTY implied that he was cheating on his gf with fans and that is why they broke up. Maybe that is not the only reason...he was cheating on her with men too.

Also, China is still very anti- gay and many franchises recap their losses/ make most of their huge gains in China. But, Marvel hinted about casting their first out superhero soon. Who knows?

Still it is proven that even straight women turn away from gay men as the romantic lead once they are outed. Maybe he does not care. Just weird he just moved to Hollywood for more roles when they are way more accepting in England of out stars.

Jon said...

Richard Madden is HOT AF!!! Although I'm disappointed he's with that ugly queen...and he's gotten fat. Maybe they're just friends.

Vita said...

Jon-- so handsome during his brief reign as King of the North, sigh

Ann said...

I liked him in GOT but as Bond? That's hysterical unless the new Bond is meant to be short and plebian looking. I read that Sam Heughan hired an internet scrubbing company to clean up his online presence for the same reason.

DJS NOLA said...

being that hollywood will soon be casting only gay actors in gay roles .. even superhero ones it may be to the benefit of some to go that route.. shit we might see a reverse one day of straight guys pretending to be gay for roles lol wouldnt that be hilarious

BayAreaGirl said...

Jon & Vita - agreed. I'm barely 5' tall so I'm not knocking anyone for being short. Did you see him in GQ?! So hot.

CCgirl said...

@Ann I heard the same thing about Sam, however, neither Richard nor Sam have a shot IMO...wayyyy too short. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but, just so is not Bond. Loved the King of the North though.

Not going to lie I have only like Daniel Craig in Casino Royale. Even then, he has never been Bond to me. Pierce in Goldeneye will always be my favorite Bond movie lol. Also, Henry was up for Bond same as Daniel Craig, but, they thought Henry was just too young at the time. My money is on him. I just want him to be more Bond and less " Jason Borne" which I have always felt Daniel's "Bond" has been. Looking forward to hearing who they cast though.

Ann said...

+1 CCgirl. I hope not because I can't see either man as Bond. I too liked Pierce in Goldeneye. I'm anxiously looking forward to who replaces Craig.

I didn't even like Heughan as Jamie in Outlander. I know how rabid Outlander fans can be but I didn't like either Heughan or Balfe. Liked the Outlander books quit watching the Outlander series after the first season.

DIA said...

He never had a chance to play Bond. It was ran by his PR people. They are trying so hard to make him happen but he's just a short wooden femine looking actor.

prixie said...

Richard Madden. He did a photoshoot as walking out of a closet. Literally. I think he is Bi. I have seen him around pubs in London and he is charming and flirty with girls. Plus he was with Jenna in a bonafide relationship.

JT0130 said...

@prixie - thanks for the added info of the photo shoot. I thought enty was referencing the pap photos of him and Brandon walking around LA. He is probably bi unless all the talk of him cheating on his girlfriends with woman sent out by his publicist.

Urban reader said...

Still think Goran Visnjic would be great as Bond.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

So, I am late to the party on GoT. I just started watching not long ago and I had a mad crush on Richard Madden while he was on the show.

So of course, he's gay. This always happens to me.

I don't see "impish" when I look at him. I see "hot."

JT0130 said...

@lookslikeCricci --- He is definitely attractive but it depends on the angle. He is a huge smoker and I think it affects the fullness of his face and makes him gaunt looking in the eyes and cheeks. I noticed in Bodyguard whenever he was standing next to a woman, you can really see his small stature. the costumes in GOT can make people seem more girthy. I noticed this about Kit too while watching SNL. Depending on how Richard and Kit are photographed, there size is not noticeable unless someone is nearby to give scale.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

@JT01330-- He's a smoker. Ew. Hard pass. #dealbreaker

Richard Madden, these were the pics yesterday. I showed some people who always doubted he was in the closet, ha! 😅

Sna said...

I mean, maybe he’s bi and likes column A and B?

JT0130 said...

I confused brandon flynn with austin nichols...john from cinncinnati was an awful show.

Pearl said...

@JT, in the latest season of GoT, you definitely notice Kit's height more than in different seasons, where they put him in situations that didn't have him standing next to people directly that much. In S7, there are scenes where he's standing next to his sister Sansa, and she's noticeably taller, but listings put her at only 1 inch taller IRL - bunk. Madden is regular height, around 5'10", I think, and his height didn't really stand out that much.

JT0130 said...

@Pearl -- 5'10 isn't short really. He worked with some tall women in the Bodyguard then. I like that. I am tall myself. I like to see more tall women in significant roles that aren't size 0 models and are not be cast as freaks of nature.

+1

CCgirl said...

@Ann. I only lasted one season of Outlander as well! I really did try. I just don't "get" the whole Sam thing. He is "straight up" balding. Plus, I do not think he translated very well to American audiences given how poorly his and Mila Kunis's movie did, "The Spy who Loved Me" or something like that. I just don't see him as a lead romantic type. But, to each their own I guess. lol

Moo shoo said...

He outed himself saying that he was bullied at school
For being the fat gay actor...

vortexmanipulator said...

I think he's about 5'7.I think he's bi. Bond casting agents should be not be pandering to homophobia but money talks.

Orville said...

Definitely Richard Madden it will be a big if he came out but disagree he is A list. In Hollywood I think Madden is a solid B because he was unknown until the bodyguard. Now he won a golden globe which was a huge upset his profile in Hollywood has gone up. It would be NICE if Richard came out. In the UK I think the British are open minded about homosexuality and male bisexuality.
