Blind Items Revealed #5

April 3, 2019

Still no offers for work for this former A- list mostly television actress from a hit pay cable show she walked away from. She thought she was going to be a huge movie star but the launch movie crashed and burned in a huge way.

Emmy Rossum

Just like Emilia Clarke will have no career after GOT and you also hinted at Maisie too, unless she starts doing the right people.

Was Cold Pursuit supposed to be the launch movie, didn't think she had a big role in that one.

She did this before with Phantom, etc, thought she was gonna be a stah...you'd think she'd know by now.

Enty's just jealous because she has talent and he doesn't, so he neesd to badmouth her.

I don't blame her for wanting to move on before she was totally typecast.

I think most of these people will be fine if they look for good parts, rather than starring roles in anticipated blockbusters

Rossum, much like Emma Watson, Amelia Clarke, Daisy Ridley...they're attractive young women, who had iconic roles...but don't bring much more to the table than looks. They don't have enough charisma and chops to pull off characters, unless the character is who they are already.

Emmy is pretty, but she had child actors stealing scenes from her in Shameless. Everybody else on Shameless blew her out of the water, acting wise, her looks and their performances floated her. Remove her from that...she doesn't bring much to the table. She showed up in "A Futile and Stupid Gesture" (good biopic of the National Lampoon), and she was completely forgettable.

I like Emmy. and her work on Shameless, but she needs some time in the trenches learning to act before trying for the top. She's young, she can do it if she gets busy and gets her hands dirty. A big role in a blockbuster would be wasted on her, at her current skill level.

The grandaddy of it all was Dan Stevens. Remember how he was supposed to crash and burn after leaving Downton Abbey. Instead of that, he was the male lead in the live action version of Beauty and the Beast that was a huge hit, and he's getting great reviews for his performance in Legion or a lot of indie films.

I found Emmy’s acting exceptional. I think she will do great in whatever she chooses to do.

jcstevens said...

How is this even a story? She’s only just left Shameless after being on it for years. She needs to audition for stuff and at some point the offers for something she wants to do will come in. She can sing too so maybe she’ll want to get back to performing, who knows!

I think phantom of the opera.

OldFart said...

Any actor can get tired of doing the same role for years, maybe dealing with people you don't like. If you've made enough money, leave, try something new...what's wrong with that?

Brayson87 said...

Oh wait, that was Emmy Rossum in The Phantom of the Opera movie, she was the only good thing about that movie. Gerard Butler couldn't hack it as the Phantom, but I knew several lifelong theater Phantom fans who thought she was awesome, better than many stage Christine's for sure.

TC said...

I think Rossum is a much better actress than she is being given credit for. She succeeded in making Fiona likable which something that would be difficult for most actresses of her generation.

Craig said...

What a load of bollocks. She's just joined UCP under their 'first look' project. She will be creating original content for them. Her choice was not movies, it was writing.
Having said that if her Husband Sam can't keep her in the custom to which she has become accustomed to, I will happily keep her in booze and Netflix for the rest of her days. Unlike Enty I think she's lovely.

Marlin said...

I think Emmy Rossum is tremendously talented. She and William Macy ARE shameless. Only other one beside these two I would miss is Lip. Wish her luck and look forward to seeing her again. That being said I tend to think she is
More suited for tv than the big screen but i havent seennher in a movie yet so...

re: Dan Stevens he came out of the gate with Fifth Estate, a big bomb. And Beauty & Beast was a built in hit. Anyone could have been in those roles it was going to make a mint. Also, Legion was canceled when the 3rd season ends it's over.

He isn't a huge star he is a working actor. But leaving Downton Abbey was still dumb.

BJD said...

Hmmm..... well, not really...
