Who is this? It's from blind gossip:
It's too bad that Hostess is going out of business, because this funny actor is
really into Twinkies. Although he has done tons of films and television shows,
this actor is best known for his role on a successful sitcom that ended a few
years ago. Despite the success of that show, he keeps working. In fact, he has
starring roles in more than one project next year. Like many Hollywood actors,
he has been married and has dated beautiful women. Those are all for show. He is
actually into boys. He likes them young (although not underage) and small in
stature and hairless. Basically, he likes twinks who look exactly the opposite
of him. He spends a good amount of his time and money on young rent boys in
Leading guesses at Blind Gossip are Brad Garrett and Kelsey Grammer.
The item at BG also notes that it's not the same actor as the one in their other blind item who was spotted apartment hunting with his younger boyfriend.
Other guesses include John Goodman, Jason Lee, and Woody Harrelson.
Brad Garrett hasn't done tons of films and television shows. He's been on two long running shows, Raymond and the four seasons of "Till Death".
Tim Allen. Apparently there were problems on set with him hitting on one of the boys who played his son. Not to mention him talking his way out of an arrest or two in the johns of the Beverly Center way back when.
Matt LeBlanc has supposedly been in a LTR with a bearish-looking guy for years now.
Tim Allen and Matt LeBlanc have current sitcoms, so it aint them.
[quote] Tim Allen and Matt LeBlanc have current sitcoms, so it aint them.
The BI doesn't say the actor isn't on a current sitcom, just that he "is best known for his role on a successful sitcom that ended a few years ago."
Wow, #6. The eyebrows on the boyfriend are scary.
Is everybody in Hollywood gay? Is this a Twilight Zone?
"Despite the success of that show, he keeps working."
It means he doesn't need the money, R11.
Oh. Thanks, r12
"Basically, he likes twinks who look exactly the opposite of him"
so doesn't that suggest someone older, bigger and hairy?
I think John Goodman is the best guess.
I take that back. Goodman has been married since 1989, so he hasn't been dating beautiful women. I still think he's actually gay, but I don't think this is about him.
Is John Goodman really still best known for his role on "Roseanne"? Plus, the show ended not "a few years ago", but 16 years ago. ("Home Improvement" ended 14 years ago, as well.)
Without going into a bunch a details, a friend and I moved out to LA in 2008 right after college. I became friendly with a friend of Bryan Singer. We were invited to a party at Bryan's house and John Goodman was there. My friend hooked up with Goodman and eventually began dating him. John Goodman was closing in on 350, my friend was maybe a 125, if that.
Hey! I actually know this one, and it will be VERY underwhelming for you guys:
I'm guessing Kevin James...but have no idea about him dating beautiful women.
I just don't know who has been in tons of movies and sitcoms. Someone always guesses Tim Allen and John Goodman but we must be missing someone...the opposite sounds kind of like Brad Garrett.
Why all these guesses about Tim Allen? Is he thought to be gay?
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Bruce Willis. He likes them young...
Kevin james sounds like a very good guess to me. Kelsey Grammer hasn't done that many movies. Tim Allen might be another possibility or, maybe, Jason Alexander but he hasn't been in that many movies either?
[quote]I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Bruce Willis. He likes them young...
Probably because the clues don't describe Bruce Willis at all.
Anyway, it's Donald Faison.
This doesn't sound like Donald Faison at all, R20. He's not the opposite of young and hairless.
Enough about Donald Faison. Kevin James sounds right.
He's 40 and hairy. The complete opposite, in fact.
Before he got married, there were rumors of Kevin James using services of male escorts. Apparently, he also has baby powder fetish.
Who are these hot women that Kevin James dated?
It's Donald afraid on. Sorry he's black and therefore no fun for you guys. So keep guessing John Goodman and Bruce Willis, cuz those are obviously dead on.
Why are you so sure it's Donald? Share the details with us.
Haha, disregard the failed poll, that was meant for a new post.
Well, I have an ex who worked on a movie called Leprechaun in the Hood. He told me one of the actresses used to do a show called Felicity, and she would always talk shit about her co-stars and she mentioned that two of the actors used to always have young male extras in their trailers.
He wasn't sure who he was talking about until he worked on Scrubs. I guess he was pretty good on that show about hiding it until the a how's last season, in which Faison and the other main characters were being written out in favor of a younger cast. Faison apparently insisted on coming back, which surprised a lot of people, until it came out that he was fucking one of the new young actors on the show.
Don't think this qualifies as a chicken hawk.
Is the answer to this Olivia Newton-John?
BI says the actor "has been" married, which I interpret as "not married currently." Donald Faison married his second wife last year. The other guesses in this thread are married as well except for Brad Garrett, Matt LeBlanc, and Charlie Sheen.
Tim Allen is the leading guess for the actor in the other BG item. They say it's a different actor in each blind, though both actors are "in the same decade of life." Tim Allen is 59 and Brad Garrett is 52.
Brad Garrett hasn't done a lot of live-action work, but he's done tons of voice-over work for animated movies and TV shows.
Thanks r35. Shocking if true, Faison comes off as very straight and he's married to that blonde friend of Jessica Simpson for whom he left his ex, a white frau with a litter of his kids. He's a true breeder.
The BI claims that the actor has several starring roles lined up in the future. Looking at IMDB, Faison has nothing of sorts.
I read a quote supposedly attributed to Don Johnson (who kinda pings anyway) that he'd rather have a young boy than an old woman, seems others think the same.
But Faison does pop up in a lot of projects, movie and TV. Guy is always working.
Does he have any projects coming up?
Hostess + Twinkies + tons would seem to point to Goodman... plus he has several projects coming up later in 2013 (if the item was written in late 2012, it fits).
But he's still married (to a Louisiana woman) and lives most of the time in New Orleans. That does fit the last part of the item, though, if his wife stays down South while he goes out to L.A. to work.
Although currently married, Steve Carell seems to fit all of the other clues.
[quote]The BI claims that the actor has several starring roles lined up in the future. Looking at IMDB, Faison has nothing of sorts.
That's a lie. He has kick-Ass 2 for one. And just as many as Kevin James.
[quote]Although currently married, Steve Carell seems to fit all of the other clues.
He was listed in a thread on celebrity tranny chasers at Hung Angels, an online hangout for trans escorts and porn stars. If that's true, it's probably not that much of a stretch that he might also be into petite, hairless twinks.
Kevin James trolling for twinks is hot. I'd like to believe that it's true. He's also married to an Asian woman which according to DL proves that he's gay.
Jesus fucking christ people are idiots.
So now we have a Donald Faison troll? Seems like he's trying to make this ill-fitting BI be about Faison just so he can say we won't care about him because we're racist.
How is Don Johnson a "funny man?"
Can it be Alec Baldwin?
[quote]So now we have a Donald Faison troll? Seems like he's trying to make this ill-fitting BI be about Faison just so he can say we won't care about him because we're racist.
How it it ill-fitting?
He's a 40 year old man who''s been know to solicit young guys.
He's been in TV (Felicity, Scrubs) and movies (Clueless), but is mostly known for Scrubs, which just ended 3 years ago.
He has lead roles in 2 upcoming movies (same as Kevin James), including Kick-Ass 2.
So how is he ill-fitting, yet Bruce Willis or Levin James or anyone else here listed not?
Wow, good guess R53. After all he IS a "daddy bear."
"Sorry he's black and therefore no fun for you guys."
Oh, just fuck you to death, asshole.
Anyone remember this one?
Which Sexiest Man Alive got double-teamed by a porn star and a dominatrix? Back in 2004, a dominatrix at New York club enlisted the porn star’s help in humiliating her mostly-straight client…who was kneeling down on the floor naked. The porn star recognized him immediately: “He had a muscular build and looked quite young… The dude peers up at me from the mat. I more than recognize the dude. I had seen him in countless big screen movies over the last few years. (He was also in People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive Issue 2003. Not the cover model, though). Jesus loves me! I can’t believe I get to fuck this guy. What the fuck?! I can’t believe this guy is into such a heavy scene! The second my dick enters him, he arches his back and he starts singing at the top of his lungs, “Onward Christian Soldier”.
What sitcom did Alec Baldwin have that ended "a few years ago"? 30 Rock ended a few weeks sgo.
Yes, I would let Donald Faison stick it in.
So R58, you're saying it was George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Ashton Kutcher, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, Denzel Washington, Justin Timberlake or Lenny Kravitz?
So who in that group can we picture singing "Onward Christian Solders" while being plowed by a porn star? Farrell?
Out of that group I'd bet on Ashton, r62.
I've known Brad Garrett for years. It's not him. Straight. Married.
Sounds like John Goodman to me.
Denzel is the only straight one in the group. My guess: Jackman.
Nick Nolte was also a People Magazine "Sexiest Man Alive", as shocking as it sounds.
That being said R58, the thread was not about an ancient blind item.
And as exciting as it is to think of Donald Faison spending his money on twinks, the bottom line r60/ r54, etc, is that the original writer of the blind item would have used "Down Low" in there somewhere if it was about a man of color.
Sorry, but that is how the Blind Item game (usually) works. I don't make the rules.
Your source is also somewhat impeachable, which does not help matters. OK?
For years, Sean William Scott was the guess seen most for R58. However, he has been overtaken by another guess: Christian Bale. (The person was "in" the same magazine as the Sexiest Men, and Bale is known to favor doms of both sexes.) Also the "Onward Christian Soldiers" could be a big clue.
John Goodman didnt have a show end a few years ago. And which hot women has he been known to date?
[quote]Nick Nolte was also a People Magazine "Sexiest Man Alive", as shocking as it sounds.
Re-read the BI.
Enough r69. We are focusing on the OP's Blind Item.
[quote] So how is he ill-fitting, yet Bruce Willis or Levin James or anyone else here listed not?
How about these reasons:
1) The twinks he likes look "exactly the opposite of him" - that suggests old, fat and hairy. Faison is only 40, which is hardly the "opposite" of a twink and is quite youthful looking and not hairy.
2) "Despite the success of that show, he keeps working." While Scrubs was successful, Faison wasn't the star, more like third, fourth or fifth character. That wouldn't lead me to believe that he made so much money that he never needs to work again as the BI implies.
3) "he has been married and has dated beautiful women." That makes it sounds like he WAS married but isn't now. Faison is currently married.
So the BI doesn't seem to fit, and you're just trying to make it work since (a) Faison is the one story you know and (b) you get to call everyone else racists.
R71, first of all, he co-lead with Braff, and the BI doesn't even say snything about lead.
And everything else you pointed out can be said about Kevin James, yet I don't see you trying to debunk all of the people claiming him.
R72, I'm not debunking the posts about Kevin James because the person posting them wasn't an ass.
One rumor from way back was that Goodman 'married' his HS sweetheart and he is still with him today. Goodman is way below the radar, nobody gossips about him. He gets jobs all the time, Hollywood seems to like him and it appears he has friends in the industry.
And the only person who thinks Faison was "co-lead" with Braff is Faison's mom.
JG was marvellous as a homosexual man lusting after a young man in Dancing On The Edge, recently seen on the BBC.
R75, it's not really a matter of opinion to anyone who actually watched the show. Even IMDB lists him 2nd.
I actually watched the show, and he was really just a member of the ensemble, with Braff as the star and narrator. And he only appears second on IMDb because he stayed after Braff left in the last season.
Are Faison's handlers trying to get gay rumors started about him? Is this the new way for actors to get buzz?
[quote]Are Faison's handlers trying to get gay rumors started about him? Is this the new way for actors to get buzz?
Well according to this one loon on this thread, the guy is already a household name, so no need.
Isn't Modern Family still on the air though, R81? Otherwise it's a good guess.
John Goodman isn't gay. He is an alcoholic. He has had serious problems with other drugs, too. He is bi polar.Infact I'm surprised every time I see him in a movie, that he's still alive. He should have dropped dead from a heart attack or a stroke years ago. He's gained back all the weight he lost.
That wasn't a guess R52, just that alleged quote always stood out. I think there's probably a lot of truth in it for some people, not least these jaded kinky actors who have sexual carte blanche. Charlie Sheen/Corey Haim/child porn rumours etc.
R83 I had read gay rumours for Goodman, but I was shocked to see him in Argo/Flight.. I thought he had gastric band surgery. He indeed looks like a walking dead man. A shame as well as he's been having a great comeback with even Oscar buzz, I hope he doesn't die.
I feel bad he can't control his eating..he's like Chris Farley only better genes.
John Goodman is indeed gay but he's not into twinks at all. I knew his lover years ago and he was a very good-looking guy named Ken who had graduated with John from Afton High School in St. Louis in 1970. Ken had bit parts in a number of John's movies and there were tabloid stories about their "wacky" relationship with John's wife wherein the three of them lived together, with the wife doing both men's laundry. Back in St. Louis, Ken worked for the highway dept. and moonlighted as a model. He had dark blond hair and an incredible body. I have no idea if they are together now or whatever happened to Ken.
robin Williams is the opposite of a twink, his sitcom ended several years ago (sic) he has dated and married several beautiful women. And seems tres gay.
Dick Cheney is a chickenhawk. All these guys are just gay actors..
"Other projects" does not necessarily mean movies. Jason Alexander does an awful lot of theatre. And musical theatre, too. Twinks galore!
It's JOHN Travolta.
I like the Robin Williams guess
Opposie of twink is a wookie-someone very hairy. Robin Williams qualifies.
For some reason the hairy part makes me think of Kelsey Grammar and his X-men Beast role.
"I like the Robin Williams guess"
But he doesn't fit the clues. He isn't best known for Mork and Mindy - he is better known for all his movies.
Has Jim Belushi done much TV besides that awful sitcom he starred in? And hasn't he been married two or three times?
Jason Alexander pings less than just about anyone, except maybe Larry David.
Only if you disregard all the clues. Revolta isn't a chickenhawk, anyway.
I used to write for a celebrity mag and we'd do blind items and whoever got the initial scoop usually changed a few things so that the real i.d. of the person that the item was about could never be found.
Then, it'd go through a round of editors and they'd change it to be more true and then it'd change back again to something so far from the truth it was unrecognizable.
A few years does not equal 20 years.
And I'm sorry, I really doubt Robin Williams, Jason Alexander and John Goodman are or were ever worried about not getting roles in romantic comedies.
My goodness people, read the clues.
I did and I think it's one of The Friends.
None of the Friends guys have any movies coming out.
R99 is correct. This BI will never be solved because one or more of the details has been changed. Think about it, with all the smart gossip hounds on DL, it would have been solved already if the clues were 100% accurate.
When Movieline had blind items...you could guess them. What is the point if there is no real answer that fits the clues?
Yep, R103. Exactly.
For example, the fact about the movie coming out. That's the type of thing that would be tweaked. The actor would have maybe a play coming up or a guest spot on a TV show that maybe has a similar name of a movie so it'd be fudged that way.
A big entertainment mucky muck called up the mag I was at once and, threatening access to stars, asked that blind items be stopped and, for a while, they were.
Matt LeBlank has a film coming out in 2013...I think it's called, Loverboy.
And the thing is, in Hollywood, Matt LeBlanc would be considered kind of stout, so opposite of small in stature, twink.
The film with Matt Leblanc is LOVESICK.
BIs serve two puposes: The initial intentof authentic BI's was to protect the publication from Libel. As the concept became more popular it morphed into fake info that Gossip columnists with no true sources could invent.
For instance, let's say you're Ted Morocco the gossip columnust, and you see Joe Movie Star out to lunch with his female agent. You know she's his agent. They're at a Mexican restaurant having a late lunch and catching up, etc.
So you do a "what if" in your head and invent a blind about an anonymous celeb sitting in a corner booth at an Italian restaurant getting cosey with a "very powerful blonde," (Agent is a brunette)suggesting this guy had a sexual relationship with someone for a favor.
You might also add that they are both married. Or you can say they are both guys. Or both women. It's not hard. So among the few legitimate BI's out here are also a raft of fake BIs and we, the public eat it up and spend hours guessing.
Drew Carey people. It would be obvious if you had any common sense.
[quote] Drew Carey people. It would be obvious if you had any common sense.
R111, you might be onto something here.
What major lead roes does Drew Carey have coming up???
Hum...maybe Drew Carey?
[quote]In fact, he has starring roles in more than one project next year.
It's not Drew Carey.
So John Goodman is gay?
Is this a well known thing?
Among the suggestions so far, I'm liking Kevin James. Alec Baldwin fits most of the clues but his show has just ended.
It's Donald Faison.
Is there a link to the BI? Maybe I missed it. If not, maybe OP is just sitting at his computer laughing at all of us :)
Someone mentioned Woody Harrelson. The BI mentioned twinkies and his character in Zombieland was on a search for twinkies the whole movie.
Woody Harrelson wasn't on a show that ended "a few years ago".
I think it's John Goodman.
I have been telling you all for many years - because I happen to know - that Anderson Cooper is gay (finally exonerated on that one), Tim Allen is straight and George Clooney is bi.
But does anyone listen to me? No.
Jason Lee was mentioned on page 1.
He is best known to the public for a sitcom, but has done film, too. He's certainly hairy and aging, the opposite of a twink.
Not to mention, he's a $cientologist, favorite cult of the closet cases.
Jason Lee is not harmless or popular. According to an old BI he's known to rat out Scientology members for breaking Scientology rules.
Harrelson is straight and far from harmless. He's had well-publicized anger management issues, and practically made himself a poster boy for recreational pot use for a while.
He probably inherited the anger problems from his father, who died a few years ago in a supermax prison where he was serving a life sentence...
Scientology seems to mean closet case, so I would consider Jason Lee. Closet, why the fuck else would you join that damn cult?
Is is John Travolta.
"Is is John Travolta."
Can you read? He doesn't fit the clues.
"I have been telling you all for many years - because I happen to know - that Anderson Cooper is gay (finally exonerated on that one), Tim Allen is straight and George Clooney is bi."
He all knew Cooper was gay. And I seriously doubt you know Tim Allen and George Clooney personally.
John Travolta doesn't fit AT ALL.
Neither does John Goodman.
Or John Goodman. Or Woody Harrelson.
Good lord, people. Actually read the damn clues.
Woody is super smart. I admire him and no, he isn't gay but he's still pretty special.
John Goodman. Duh.
The "opposite of him" is a hint. You're looking for someone older and FAT.
What beautiful women has John Goodman dated?
[quote]John Travolta doesn't fit AT ALL.Neither does John Goodman.(...)
Um, YES Goodman fits rather well.
[quote]It's too bad that Hostess is going out of business, because this funny actor is really into Twinkies. Although he has done tons of films and television shows, this actor is best known for his role on a successful sitcom that ended a few years ago.
John Goodman is best known as Dan Conner. He has had tons of movie roles as well. He has had recurring roles in several series since Rosanne, including most recently, "Damages" & "Community".
[quote]Despite the success of that show, he keeps working. In fact, he has starring roles in more than one project next year.
Depending on when this was written. BI always exaggerate the "starring" part. More likely they don't mean the lead role but a large enough part to get notices. i.e., Goodman was in Argo and Flight with significant parts.
[quote]Like many Hollywood actors, he has been married and has dated beautiful women.
John Goodman married Anna Beth Hartzog in 1989, but was rumored to be cheating on her as far back as 1990s.
[quote]Those are all for show. He is actually into boys. He likes them young (although not underage) and small in stature and hairless. Basically, he likes twinks who look exactly the opposite of him. He spends a good amount of his time and money on young rent boys in Hollywood.
Is he really best known for Roseanne? That ended a long time ago and he's probably better known now as a film actor.
R19 What a load of shit! People just say this kind of crap to denigrate celebrities.
Roseanne didn't end a few years ago.
Yeah, there are lots of Co$ members with sexual secrets.
If you don't have some embarrassing secrets that emerge in auditing, they have nothing to hold over your head.
I think Kevin James would fit best. I did think Chris Noth would be quite hot though! SATC probably his best known role but that ended more than a few years ago. He is married and in plenty of TV and movies over the years but I think thats more a fantasy than reality. I was about 16 when I first saw SATC and loved him more than any of the young guys they had on there!
[quote]I have been telling you all for many years - because I happen to know - that Anderson Cooper is gay (finally exonerated on that one), Tim Allen is straight and George Clooney is bi.... But does anyone listen to me? No.
I find that pretty easy to believe.
[quote]I think Kevin James would fit best.
Kevin James is straight. I've known him and his family for years. (Or if he's gay, he's so deep in the closet that none of his friends and family know.)
r140, has a point. Why did we all assume this guy is white?
r140- What's your guess?
R142, guessing the names of some white people neither means we "assume" the guy is white or that we are racist. It just means that many of the stars who might fit the clues happen to be white.
Don't assume everyone is guessing white by default, r140. The clues fit a white person.
How many black men are described as 'hairy'?
