Blind Items Revealed #5

September 18, 2019

This A list dual threat actress with a huge sequel coming to a movie and stars on a hit television show was ticked off that producers of a third threat production would even think they could land her for what is essentially this decade's version of a role for a celebrity like there was one for Grease two decades ago or Chicago last decade. It is a stunt casting role. Then, they used her rejection for more publicity.

Kristen Bell/Frozen 2/The Good Place/Waitress

Used her for publicity!

Heaven forfend!

Sounds like a good strategy.

@bollybiy, Glad you made sense of that word salad.

It IS a kind of funny way to cope with rejection when you're going for publicity anyway.

Has anyone seen the theatrical version of Waitress? I heard it was charming, but haven't seen it.

@Vita: My 15-year-old niece saw it with her cousins (they’re around the same age) and they all loved it!

>insert gif of confused @Guesser<. The first sentence was epic, Enty.

grease is nearly four decades ago now, not two...

fairylights said...

@Vita: Yes, it is pretty good, and has some nice music too. I guess I don't see what her problem is with that show, sure it's not Les Mis or Phantom, but it's still pretty good.

TwoDots said...

She’s A list?

Vita said...

Aquagirl and Fairylights-- thanks for reviews!

TwoDots-- I think the success of Frozen and upcoming sequel alone put her up there, then add Bad Moms, Good Place, Veronica Mars, ad campaigns...she's had a pretty good run going on

Vivian said...

She started off in theater. I really hope she isn't an A-hole actor. Don't go to the dark side, K.Bell

Krissie said...

Holy shit. I'm not even gonna try with this one. A sentence should be limited to two lines max, that's all I'll say

Grease had a stage revival in the 90s. I saw it on Broadway. Brooke Shields was Rizzo.

Why? Are you limited in your intellect?

stig2578 said...

Sash, it makes me 20 years old lol.

Freebird said...

@stigwig Because it’s called using punctuation, asshat. Someone who is limited in their intellect might understand that gibberish though, so please tell us what it says.

@Krissie - his name's not Max.

Am mystified by Bell's popularity. Thought she was badly miscast in A Good Place, her style is preppy do gooder so I just don't buy her foul mouthed unpleasant character in it. Saw her in an awful film with Christina Aguilera and Cher where she plays some sort of femme fatale dancer and it wasn't convincing in the slightest. She has a very good agent or very good connections...

Unknown said...

she said no ... so what? how do you know she was "ticked off" about the offer.?? this is lame AF

Krissie said...

bootsy I feel the same about you and Bell in Good Place, its partially why I can't get into it, just like I can never ever buy Bill Hader as a serial killer

bootsy said...

@ Krissie Yeah actually now you mention it I think that's why I can't get into that Bill Hader show! No way is he an ex soldier mercenary killer etc
