[Blind Gossip] Once you are cast in a successful franchise film, you are guaranteed a part in the next chapter, right?
Not necessarily! Even if the quality of your acting is good, if people on the set don’t personally like you, you may not make it to the next film. This is especially true in ensemble films, where another actor can always take the lead next time.
This actor in a major franchise would be well-advised to adjust his attitude on set. He’s nice to the other principals… but treats the crew like dirt.
Not Alex Pettyfer or anyone from Magic Mike.

[Optional] Are nice people more successful?
Could this be the male lead in the Divergence franchise? Forget his name but he is English like Alex Pettyfer, fair and looks kinda similar. Based on nothing more than this. Or Miles Teller in the same franchise, hit big in Whiplash
No Magic Mike leaves out whatsisprettyboiface pushing to be Gambit (stage+pink hoodie), and the questionable delays surrounding this franchise spinoff. I’ll go with Cavill, as he seems to have gotten more than a few questionable reviews on his “interview style/answers” of late, as opposed to anything concerning BvS.
The only thing that I stands out as a clue to me, is the use of the word ‘chapter’. I know Star Wars also gets listed in episodes but I hear it referred to in chapters a lot? Other than this, the only only films referred to in chapters, which is still ongoing, is Insidious.
Jessie Eisenberg, lex luther, superman vs batman
I agree with this. Eisenberg’s poor treatment of crew members has been well documented lately. Cavill may not be the most expressive actor, but I’ve heard he’s generally polite to everyone on set. Eisenberg is a *.

I have heard so many stories….
The filming is over
Tom Hardy, Mad Max Franchise
According to Mad Max’s DP,Hardy was not nice or professional during the filming
This sounds like an ensemble cast franchise with no real plot link, so I would exclude Star Wars (they probably signed at least a 3 movie deal and reports about Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac and so on are pretty awesome. We are talking about professional people, not entitled brats).
Hence I would say someone from the Avengers (Renner?) or FF.
Judging from people working with Adam Driver, this is really a big NO. He has always been described as extremely kind and professional.
Jamie Dornan – 50 Shades …
(Looks like Pettyfer)
actually Donald Trumps butler just wrote an article about how nice Trump was to him and his family
alos when ben carson didn’t move when name called at debate
Trump was the only one who stayed back with him to not embarrass him as CRUZ and rubio and bush waltzed by
that stuck with me –thats when i changed my vote to him
also by job just outsourced and I’m getting sick of all my friends losing their jobs to company who outsource to UK and mexico and indai
keywords: ensemble and chapter
as in avengers assemble and marvel starting chapter 3 with civil war
guy in the picture looks like Chris evan captain america
SPOILER REGARDING WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN IN CIVIL WAR MOVIE
the civil war movie is captain america but it seems like iron man is the main character and in the comic books captain dies and bucky (winter soldier ) takes over his place. So it could be bye bye for Chris evans
Don’t know who this is.. but I have a friend who was known for treating waitstaff like dirt on her shoe. Otherwise, she is a really good friend. No one knew how to talk to her about it. After one lunch, we received our checks. The waitress made notations on each check to differentiate us, she was new and I don’t think she knew these printed on the check. Mine said “grey scarf,” another check said “black sweater” etc. My rude friend’s check had “disrecspectful c**t” on it…
^^^ That is awesome!! LOL. Did it serve as a wakeup call to your friend?
It did! She is extremely kind to waitstaff now. She claims she didn’t know she was being rude to them (lol… whatever), but it’s all good now.
Ha! That is fantastic. There is never a good reason to be an ass to someone who is performing a service for you, IMHO. It says a lot about the character of a person when they do that.
Heh. As a former waitress, I wish I’d had the balls to do this just once with certain customers. I think there’s a special place in hell for people who treat people in jobs they consider “beneath them” like lower life forms. Sometimes you try you are slammed in those jobs and its impossible to do your best. I had people who were terrible tippers, but were so sweet that I didn’t care. I’d rather someone tip less than be demeaning or degrading.
Oh gosh…. is it Henry Cavill ????
Nice people are more successful, because you get good vibes & spread good vibes and good karma comes right back at cha!!
John Boyega or Oscar Isaac on Star Wars.
Kylo Ren from Star wars? Looks like him, vaguely.
Batman v Superman
Nice people tend to be easier and more pleasant to work with, which definitely plays a factor in building and sustaining a successful career. I find that what goes around often comes around, even if it doesn’t happen right away. if you treat the crew like crap, don’t assume the crew won’t clap back. just look at Katherine Heigl, shilling out cat food now! #karma
I like your answer and response to the optional question.
I don’t know why the Shrek franchise came to mind ( too much wine?) but Eddie Murphy or Mike Myers came to my mind but they are both known douches to the minions.
Dancing with Mr D says
Maybe someone from the never-ending Marvel Comics franchises?
No, success isn’t based on niceness.
No clue, but I am beginning to think that the more of an ass you are, the more successful you become. Nice people seem to get walked on more often in my opinion.
Sometimes in asserting your authority, you con’t come across as a nice guy but you don’t have to be a clown with everyone around you or your subordinates.
Ive met James McAvoy and can say without a doubt, he’s THE nicest celebrity I’ve ever met. He couldn’t have been any nicer to me (and my mum) and spent so much time talking to us and HE actually asked US if we wanted a picture altogether. Will never forget that.
Ahh, this could be it.
does anyone do some research? This is totally random
Adam Driver’s character was killed in Star Wars, so it would be weird to bring him back anyway. Plus I love him and don’t want him to be a jerk.
He wasn’t killed in Star Wars and he’s signed on for the rest of the films AND he’s always been loved on set so no way this is him
Actor: David Hasselhoff
[Optional] Are nice people more successful? They should be but in the film industry it seems like the bigger the jerk the bigger the paycheck.
Hilarious! They gave Hoff a part i am sure based on nostalgia, sentiment and pure SCHTICK, not based on his being the star now at his age.
A few guesses
Renner and the Marvel films. Hawkeye has not had his own film, and it was no big deal to replace Hulk. And those films are planned out through the end of my life it seems.
Eastwood and Suicide Squad. They announced a sequel recently.
Affleck and Batman v. Superman. I’m doubtful it’s him but given what he was going through at the time of filming who knows.
^^ this was my immediate thought as the new film is coming out ^^
cavill/affleck would be too obvious of a blind.
Jeremy irons from BatmanVsSuperman ?
Someone of Deadpool?
Just to be rando. Cause it’d be funny if true, means he didn’t learn the lesson the first time. They even altered the franchise timeline just to bring back the gorgeous Han.
I hope this is not the case. I had a lot of ppl tell me he was the sweetest & most gracious kid on the set of American Gothic. Although …Hollywood does tend to twist & taint.
Henry Cavall, Superman
HE IS the movies. He is the star, Superman, definitely. Ensemble ones are more like the Twilight, Avengers, Star Stars, etc movies. They expressly say other actors could take the lead next time as a clue. Who would be the ‘other’ taking the lead in SUPERMAN?
Henry Cavill? All I can say is, I’ve read dozens of books about Hollywood, and dozens of autobiographies, and the most successful people in the business are the ones who treat the working crew well. Eating lunch with them, gifting them when the film is over at the wrap party, taking an interest in their lives. The ones who demand no one make eye contact with them, who spend ever free minute in their trailers, who act like their poop don’t stink? Who can admire someone like that??
I think you got it. The dominant colours in the picture are red(ish) and blue, and you can see that the man in the picture has a tattoo on his chest — all things that point to Superman.
The line “but treats the crew like dirt” may be a reference to ‘Sand Castle’, which is one of Cavill’s upcoming films.
I second that. I think it ‘s Henry Carvel too.
