Man’s Man Buys A Love Nest

love nest[Blind Gossip] While this actor currently has the starring role on a TV show, he is not just a TV star. He has had many several successful hit projects in different areas of the entertainment business, likely because every demographic group just seems to find him so darn appealing!

He is probably considered a real “man’s man” to most men; he reminds women of their own husbands; and even kids like him. He’s not big or tough or mean, but he is just totally relatable as a father and a husband and friend, which attracts the widest possible audiences to his projects.

It is this perception of him as a “man’s man” that will make this news especially surprising. Although he is married and has a child/ren, our “man’s man” is either bisexual or gay.

Very specifically, he bought a condo in a large city for himself and his boyfriend. The boyfriend is very cute and is quite a bit younger than the star. They were reportedly very sweet and affectionate with each other while shopping for their little love nest. The star already has one or more homes in other cities. This condo is where the boyfriend lives full-time and where the star stays whenever he is in town.

BTW, this is NOT The Twinkie Guy from He’s Really Into Twinkies… although both The Twinkie Guy and Man’s Man are in the same decade of life.

    John Goodman currently on “Dancing on the Edge” tv series. Used to be Dan “the man” Connor on Roseanne. He was Sulley in Monsters, Inc. (even kids like him).

    • jasper says

      John would also be discounted for the “not a TV star”. He’s best known for Roseanne.

      While a recent interview tied to BBC’s “Dancing” is more honest about his past than he’s been before, he stops short of actually naming any of his “bad deeds”. I don’t think John would ever be outed without a domino effect to several other well known friends of his.

      • jasper says

        crap, I read that wrong, “not JUST a TV star.”

        so, success on: TV, movies, stage, and questionable success on the music front (Big River and that Monsters Inc song, mixed on Blues Brothers 2000 and other projects.)

        I still say “the domino effect” will keep his secrets secret.

  2. shelaur22 says

    Maybe it’s Tim Allen. He’s on Last Man Standing and has of course been part of the Toy Story and Santa Clause movies.

    • fancypants16 says

      I agree here based on the Santa Clause Movies. Kids like him and this clue “where the star stays whenever he is in town”….Santa Claus is coming to town.

  3. bhemp says

    Patrick Warburton? His IMDB is all over the place. TV show would be Rules of Engagement. He’s also a regular on Family Guy and has done countless family-friendly movies. And he’s married with 4 kids.

    • KWDragon says

      He’s not big, he’s HUGE. IMDB lists him as 6’3″. While I think of him as a teddy bear (personal bias), and he seems like a wonderful husband and father from interviews, the phrase “He’s not big or tough” does not seem to apply to him.

    • LooLoo says

      He started out in stand up, had his TV show and has done movies as well as cartoon voices in the Ice Age series. He seems to fit pretty well.

      • LooksLikeCRicci says

        Co-sign. I think the last line is a clue, too. Ace says that it’s not Twinkie Guy, but they are in the same decade of life. Romano was on the TV show “Men of a Certain Age.”

    • die_answerd says

      “every demographic group just seems to find him so darn appealing” = “Everybody Loves Raymond”

  4. BlindGuessing says

    JK Simmons? Jeremy Sisto? Tom Selleck! Chris Noth? Craig T Nelson. Kevin Costner?

    These are based purely on who’s in a tv show now and who might be considered a man’s man. I’m not sure about the other projects. Or if they’re previously married/with children.

    • NurseRozetta says

      I don’t think Jeremy Sisto. He does have a place in CA and NY though… He travels with his wife/kids/and they take his mom back and forth.

    • Booboo1068 says

      This is one of my top picks as well. Maybe partly why he’s struggled with addictions?

  5. melly123 says

    My first thought was Tim Allen. He played a real man’s man on Home Improvement.

  6. Katmandu says

    I don’t know if he is a TV star of a show, but Bob Saget? He’s done TV, movies (voices and TV movies), videogame voices, Broadway, documentaries, and seems to fit in with everyone liking him.

  7. HotTeacher88 says

    Tim Allen. Current starring role on a TV show. In his 50’s like Brad Garrett of Twinkie fame. Man’s man from the tool time character from the 90’s TV show, all the growling and testosterone. Other projects to include wide audience: Toy Story, The Santa Clause.

  8. NBG says

    Ed O’Neill biggest clue being “married and has child/re”=married with children.

  9. dlma1214 says

    Thinking Tim Allen….definitely a “Man’s Man” from his sitcom roles, kids like him because of his Disney related projects….has been married a couple times and has kids…

  10. Synapse3 says

    Jason Sudekis? The child being the one possibly with January Jones. He has been married. Successful in several mediums.

  11. stubborngemini says

    Gotta go with Neil Patrick Harris, although it would break my heart to hear it, because he is so darn appealing.

  12. ilikepie44 says

    Tim Allen? I feel like its him because of the mans man reference when he was on home improvement he was the mans man or what ever.

  13. triggerua says

    I can’t figure this one out, but I am so anxious to see who people think this is! All I can come up with is Tom Selleck. I am fairly new to this site and I love it!

  14. woodwn says

    Alec Baldwin. Heard some previous blinds about him being bisexual. The picture is of a bird ie Twitter fiasco. Also, Twinkie Guy is probably Wood Harrelson (51) and Alec is 54.

  15. huhwhoami says

    sorry disregard not a tv starring role currently, dont have a clue , anxious to see what others come up with here.

  16. mistyk says

    Jim Belushi…. he has a book called “Real Men Don’t Apologize” and was in a few movies with “men” or “man” in the title. He’s made all kinds of movies, including kid’s movies. He’s been married 3 times and has 3 kids.

    • jasper says

      His partner/brother-in-law on ‘According to Jim’ reminds me of a Twinkie: blond and full of fluff. Don’t tell me those two actually weren’t taking the “bromance” a bit further!
      (Yes, I know Joe is married with like six kids! a guy can dream and write slash, right?)

  17. Virgo826 says

    Tim Allen?
    Last MAN Standing=Man’s Man
    Totally relatable and multiple projects=Home Improvement, Santa Clause, Toy Story, etc

    Only glitch is he is currently married with a small child, but…

  18. dedhamguy says

    Bryan Cranston. Same “decade of life” as Brad Garrett: the most popular answer for “He’s really into Twinkies”

    • Alaclairefontaine says

      Hello, I am new here, I already posted once I think but it’s been a while.
      I think you are right (even though I don’t watch series, so how would I know???),
      It can totally be Bryan Cranston, for the part about “He reminds women of their husbands” is weird but could refer to his role as AL a childish husband in Malcolm in the Middle, and that’s why “kids would love him too”. The blind finishes with in town, could refer to the movie “the town” whose director was Ben Affleck and he just played in Argo – I know this is a stretch but Blind Gossip does this kind of weird connections sometimes.
      Sorry for writing a long monologue.

  19. westcoastlove says

    How about Tony Danza? Isnt he recently divorced, beloved by all, and successful as a TV dad, and on broadway? just a total guess..

  20. MrsBreeder says

    I have a homophobic family member that idolizes Tim Allen.

    Please, please, pleassssssssssssssseeee let it be him.

  21. Nuggs says

    Ray Romano? if it’s definately not the Twinkies guy, that to me is a clue and he and Brad were on Everybody loves Raymond together. i don’t know enough about him to know if he’s married but most guys i know who saw the show said he was a real mans’ man in that he said it like it was and was hopeless with his on screen wife…

  22. lovefifteen says

    Could this be Craig T Nelson because the picture is a bird with an “empty nest”? He used to be on the show Empty Nest.

    • veganman says

      Craig T Nelson was never on Empty Nest. Are you thinking of Richard Mulligan? Big difference.

    • ILoveLucy says

      He was??? He was on Coach back in those days. The man is in everything. Cartoon voices too. This is a good guess. But he’s twice divorced and by most standards, he’s a big man. 6′ 4″ and stocky, manly build is not small. I love him. He’s so great.

  23. realmccoy18 says

    it’s got to be someone younger than most of these guesses…it says they are both in the same decade of life…i don’t know any twinkie guys who are too far out of their 20’s.

    • Theo6 says

      That’s more appealing than Ray Romano or Tim Allen but doubtful. He’s been married to Pam Dauber since 1987. That’s a long time for a sham marriage.

  24. DiamondGoddess says

    Dennis Quaid (oh, GAHD, noooooooo! lols)
    Tom Selleck

    • FairyMay9 says

      Well, you know what they say about homophobes …

      And what’s your source on Tim Allen being homophobic?

  25. hhsrp says

    I’d say Taye Diggs – TV, Movies, Broadway… Comedy, Drama, Musicals – but he’s not technically “currently” starring in a TV show since Private Practice ended in January.

  26. BeanTownBabe says

    I am going with Kevin Bacon… he has a hit new TV show The Following and he has been in a bagillion movies/shows which relates to “every demographic group just seems to find him so darn appealing.

  27. peepingtom says

    Jon Cryer “Man’s Man” – Show title – Two and a half men. Married 2x, 2 kids. He’s been on Bway, TV and movies. Ordinary guy next door type.

    • FairyMay9 says

      I’m totally on board with this one. I think Tim Allen is just too recognizeable to be able to pull that double life off. But Jon Cryer? I can see this, and the blind fits him.

  28. fraublucher says

    Got interested in the bird/nest image and love nest in the clue — googling “Tim Allen” nest doesn’t give much, but googling “Tim Allen” bird comes up with his own product page on amazon that is mostly build it yourself birdhouses. Too far a reach to be the bird nest thingee?

    I’m going with Tim Allen on this one. Man’s Man = Tim Taylor; husband = his early standup routines were mostly about being a husband; widest range audience possible= Toy Story, Santa Clause, etc.

  29. flymetothemoo says

    Ray Romano was the first to come to mind. That would hardly be current events considering he hasn’t had much success recently (imo, then again I don’t find him funny).

  30. suzabelle says

    I think everyone has it with Tim Allen. He did the voiceover for a Chevy Silverado super bowl ad set after the apocalypse and the survivors are all eating twinkies – search for twinkies survive doomsday to see the youtube.

  31. FairyMay9 says

    Wait. I’ve also been thinking about the bird image. Trying to tie that to something, but I couldn’t come up with anything that compelling that also fit the blind. But someone mentioned Jon Cryer, and that struck me as a real possibility. Everything fit pretty well … and then the bird picture.


    Hel-lo. This is Jon Cryer.

  32. guessing game says

    Gotta go with Tim Allen on this one. He is on Last Man Standing now and was on Home Improvement, he is in the Hall of Fame of the Kids Choice Awards, has done all the Claus and Toy Story movies, is married and has several kids, the note the birdie is holding says “he’s funny and cool” and that fits, too.

  33. BeckyJackson says

    Patrick Dempsey and the place where he bought the condo is Seattle, where he just acquired Tully’s Coffee.

  34. TheOtherIan says

    Joel McHale of Community and The Soup. According to Wiki he’s: an American comedian, actor, writer, television producer, television personality, and voice artist born 11-20-71 making him 41.
