Blind Item #8 - Reader Blind Item

This permanent A+ Oscar winning actor/ Oscar nominated actor who is now retired had an unusual pastime at his peak.

He had built under his house a boxing ring surrounded by an amphitheater.  He would bring in groups of friends to fight and to watch and to bet and the winners would take home the cash. Sometimes, the actor himself, who is known to enjoy a fistfight, would step into the ring. He never lost a brawl.

I can't see Nicholson or Hackman in a fistfight.

Kirk Douglas?

Do Tell said...

Oh, that's a good one. Yeah, probably Kirk.

Tricia13 said...

Thanks@DoTell... he made the film Champion ,and believe did all his own boxing

Rosie riveter said...

Oh gross. The best revenge on Kirk Douglas now, is that he looks like a literal corpse
Bwahahahaha
#suckit

MyDogSmiles said...

Ask Natalie Wood about Kirk Douglas never losing a fight :(

O/T, for anyone who ever followed soaps, and even if you don't, Sarah Joy Brown used to be a pretty popular actress in the genre. She also has a very bizarre story that she is trying to get out to the public regarding her ex husband, Shuki Levi, who is a producer and ran Saban Entertainment for years. He was extremely abusive to her, controlling and has some very powerful connections. You can look up her Twitter feed @sarahjoybrown, but she also posted a 20 minute interview on YouTube today where she goes into great detail about this guy. I listened to it and it is really alarming stuff. Well worth listening to.

La Morena said...

Good guesses but I think it’s Richard Burton .

Brayson87 said...

@Do Tell, What's the gist of it?

Brayson87 said...

@La Morena, Yeah Enty usually describes Kirk as more of a dirtbag.

Tricia13 said...

Richard Burton is dead ,not retired.... though that’s one way to put it lol

Do Tell said...

He installed surveillance in her home w/o her knowledge, committed parental abduction of their daughter, torched her home and nearly killed her (I think it was her home, I missed that part.) His business partner has Clinton/Obama connections. She feels she was fired from a Days of Our Lives job because of her husband. She also feels his connections are why he has never been held legally accountable.

Sean Connery. He loves a one-sided fistfight with his wife.

Do Tell said...

Her husband also sexually assaulted her in public in front of VIPS including Bill Clinton. Like I said, bizarre story.

T. W. said...

Isn’t this the plot of Fight Club?

IndieRaga said...

I think it's Rocky Balboa !

T. W. said...

I don’t watch General Hospital but I do recognize Sarah.

longtimereader said...

I like the Kirk guess, evil rapist into blood sport.

Do Tell said...

*fiancee, not husband. They never got married.

Tricia13 said...

It’s totally Fight Club actually!
That movie was good ,hard to watch though๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ’ช

Brayson87 said...

@Tricia, It's the last great movie either Pitt or Norton were in ๐Ÿ˜‚

Notagoodscreenname said...

Richard Burton is dead.

Tricia13 said...

@Brayson that is true. Although I heard OUATIH is great and he’s amazing in it?!
I really liked Ed in The Painted Veil(maybe more of a period piece/chick movie though lol)

Freckles said...

Kirk Douglas, they let him win

Soapdish said...

@do tell, she was the best Carly! Loved her on GH.

Lola said...

Kirk Douglas or Sean Connery

Mrs Libnish said...

All good guesses. +1 to Rosie and Kirk the wheelchair corpse.

Unknown said...

Exactly. Kirk surrounds himself with "yes" people.

TeeHee@U said...

LOVE, LOVE Sarah Brown as Carly back in the day when I still watched GH (all her scenes are online btws, she is a very good actress). Thanks for sharing. Scary stuff. Last time I heard she had quit acting because she was so fed up with the business.

David Andrews said...

Richard Burton let drink get in the way of physical prowess and was never a good scrapper after 30. He died from a brain injury suffered when he picked a verbal argument with a younger chap in a Swiss bar, got pasted and struck his head on the floor. It was covered up so the body could be released and the estate settled quickly.

russell crowe

Bubbles said...

Isn't an amphitheatre an open air venue? How does one have an open air venue beneath their house? Wouldn't it then be enclosed?

Rudo El Gato said...

Warren Beatty

Unknown said...

Not sure about permanent A+ status but this sounds like something Mickey Rourke would do... He was a pretty decent boxer back in the day

Large Marge said...

Gene Hackman?

Baba said...

Hackman. Jack is no fighter.

Count Jerkula said...

Would have been cooler if it was 2 skanks and a Crack Rock on a Pole wrasslin match.

Jeweled Skye said...

Mickey Rourke

MattDaddy said...

A lot of those old timey H'wood guys were serious boxers. Legend tells of a brutal drunken duel between Errol Flynn and John Houston that ended in a stalemate.

Yaccub said...

Gene Hackman

Boo said...

I'll go with the Micky Rourke guess. I don't think he's permanent A+, but he was a boxer.

If we're sticking to older dudes who are still alive, how about Clint Eastwood?

If we're sticking to older dudes who are dead, how about John Wayne? Not sure about the Oscar bit for him.

Clark Gable?

Boo said...

@Tricia13 THE PAINTED VEIL is good for one viewing. :)

Boo said...

Another old dude who's dead, how about Marlon Brando pre-tubness? Hell, let's throw in Elvis for good measure. This blind could literally be anyone.
