[Blind Gossip] Unlike the protagonist in the novel by Richard Bach, we’re not looking for perfection from this amiable actor. We’re just looking for consistency.
A few years ago, he fell off the wagon after a distressing break up with a pixie-haired actress. He eventually sobered up. He has mentioned his sobriety several times and how proud he is of himself.
Right now, he is filming a new TV series on the East Coast. Despite not being at home, he is trying to stay committed to his sobriety.
Some nights he goes to his AA meetings.
Other nights he goes out the local bars and gets completely drunk.
Uh oh. That’s not so good.
He stumbles out at closing and then shows up to set the next day very hungover.
Perhaps he is forgetting that a lot people depend on him for their livelihood.
Then again, he is the star of the show and they are already several weeks into filming. They are not going to get rid of him and they are not going to shut down production just so he can sober up.
So, for now, it looks like cast and crew will simply have to put up with his sober days, his drunk days, and his hungover days.

[Optional] If your colleague showed up drunk to work, what would you do? I’m a nurse, so I’d report them to the higher-ups immediately.
Segel = Seagull. When it clicked, I lol’d loudly!

It would depend on what work we were talking about. If it was medical, I’d have them tossed out asap.
I think good for him for going to the AA meetings, at least he’s trying to stay sober. People slip, they fail, they try again.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Poor guy, I don’t see a happy ending for him but I really hope he gets well.
I AM the colleague who would show up drunk to work…
I choked on my coffee reading this! Thanks for the laugh 😆

Actor: Jason Segel
He entered AA after his split from Michele Williams in 2013. He is currently filming Dispatches from Elsewhere in Philadelphia.
I’m blanking on the actor right now but if a colleague showed up to work drunk I certainly wouldn’t be the first to notice and they’d be fired immediately. Even though teaching can be a thankless job, just take the day off, don’t get yourself fired.
Not sure what I would do. In the old days, we would have beer at lunch, but those days are long gone.
Actor: Jason Segel (Pixie haired actress is Michel Williams).

LOL, love the Jonathan Livingston Seagull tip off. Nice one BG!
Jason Segel filming in Philadelphia?
I have no idea who this is, but that headline and that photo made me laugh out loud.
Jason Segel. Poor dude.
It’s happened. Depends on the person – if it was someone I care about, I’d try to help. If they’re a *, call HR.
Jason Segel….Michele Williams broke his heart….
