Blind Item #12

This A- list actor from an acting family has been acting since he was a tween. It took him a bit to be the highest on the list in the family. All of you know him. Dual threat. Multiple hit shows. Multiple hit movies. He has been hitting the coke hard and not coming home to his wife at night. Not a Baldwin. Think younger.

Maybe Jason Bateman? Was Justine ever higher on the list than him?

cheesegrater15 said...

Yeah, wasn't she on Family Ties before he was acting?

Natalie said...

David Arquette

MyDogSmiles said...

Damon Wayans Jr.?

Carolyn said...

One of the Skarsgards?

wendybar said...

I like Natalie's answer!

Jason Ritter

Sean Astin?

Guesser said...

I think @sandybrook got it,it took forever for him to be a big star,you would think that he was past the drug period. Probably one of those people who are better off trying to get to the top.

sandybrook said...

Nah cheesegrater it looks like they were starting around the same time, but she did really well with Family Ties and won awards, so maybe they still fit.

Tricia13 said...

Maybe Josh Brolin?

Poor Bateman. Ya know what they say about 50, its the age men lose their minds and women find theirs.

Has Kieren or Rory overtaken McCauley Caulkin?

gauloise said...

A lot of these people arent that much younger than the Baldwins.

squirrelmistress said...

maybe that's why the 3rd season of ozark is taking so long...

Derp said...

Give the guy a break. He smirked his way through Teen Wolf Too, we don’t know if Mark Holston has his way with him

Queen Bee said...

I thought Jason Bateman for this too.

Troy Dyer said...

Jason Bateman was my first thought

Mystique99 said...

All of the Culkins have been acting since before the tween years, but due to his critical acclaim on Succession I'd say Kieran has over taken Mac at least professionally even though thanks to Home Alone he (MC) will always be more famous.

JT0130 said...

Kieran Culkin fits.

Can't see Batemen as dual threat or as having a coke problem. He seems too anal retentive. I know he has done movies but nothing stands out that I consider would make him dual threat.

CBGB said...

Kieran also has a new baby, so I could see the stress getting to him. But is he A-?

Tink said...

Dave Franco

David Andrews said...

Except for Josh Brolin, no one on the list is A-.

AussieBlogger said...

Jason Bateman was a teen actor in a show called Valerie in the 80's.

hunter said...

I also doubt it is Jason Bateman, he seems to have his shiz together as a longterm professional entertainer.

Melissa said...

Joaquin Phoenix?

kiki71 said...

@ JT isn't dual threat tv and film? Bonafide following with ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and previous shows and now OZARK and has done a ton of comedy movies as supporting then lead. That's a dual threat.

I think this is Bateman because he languished a long time before finally really hitting it big.

Also he DID start the same time as his sister... he was on SILVER SPOONS.

kiki71 said...

Both Bateman and Kiernan are probably A list... Kiernan is up for a Golden Globe. Bateman has been everywhere and OZARK Is a huge hit. But Culkin was acting WAY before he was a tween. I think Jason was probably 11/12 on SILVER SPOONS as Derek.

Jason Bateman was born in 1969 and started working in 1980. Bateman has been married since 2001 and his kids are older. I think if a new baby was at home, ENTY would have mentioned that.

So, I would say Jason Bateman over Kieran Culkin because while he is on a hit show and has a famous last name...I still would put him at B+.Because Bateman is much more recognizable with his movies and Ozark and Arrested Development.

I think Jason Is often a very one note actor in the sense I feel like he plays himself in everything (comparing him to Bryan Cranston and James Galdolfini in similar shows) , but, regardless, I hope he get help. This time of the year can be tough.

Thot Crimes said...

Melissa's guess.. Joaquin Phoenix +1

The Joker sealed the deal for the public at large and got him over the River Phoenix hump.

TeeHee@U said...

But, Joaquin has never had any hit tv shows that he led is all like this blind states. Not that it really matters lol but that is why I do not think this is Phoenix .

JT0130 said...

@kiki71 - I always thought Enty meant dual threat as being a bankable star in more than one medium. There are plenty of actors that have done Movies and TV and/or Broadway,but I wouldn't call them dual threat because they don't have the immense fame to get people into the theater or in-front of their TVs to watch the shows. Bateman has done movies but never carried a movie on his own that I can recall. If Enty does mean dual threat as anyone who has done TV and film and/or broadway, then that is a very generous to call that actor a "threat" .

Minnie The Moocher said...

Not Bateman. His career eclipsed his sister's long ago.
His father-in-law is Paul Anka! Anka would have him disappeared
if he went rogue ... ever hear Anka's post-show rant at his band?
Classic, better than Buddy Rich's.

I was thinking Joaquin also ... he is a director, so double threat.
I don't believe he and Rooney Mara are married, though.
The "shows" confused me though, he did do television long ago.
Maybe it's a different kind of show. Theater? Music? Puppets!?

Sean Astin?
Scott Caan?
Oliver Hudson?

Jenn B. said...

Don't know if this is Jason Bateman. Hasn't been clean and sober since his 20s?

Craisins2017 said...

Thot and Melissa - it's definitely not Joaquin! He isn't married, and is a really good guy with excellent integrity / internal moral compass. He's also cleaning up his act and is even trying to quit smoking, he's definitely not caning drugs.

Stacey said...

Seconding Dave Franco

Cocobean said...

Dave Franco as higher status than James? Nah.

Nonya Bidness said...

Bateman fits way better than any of the others.
