Mystery Celebrity Blog.

A few months ago I'd heard about a blog that's supposed to belong to an anonymous celebrity who calls himself "Rance." Granted, celebrity blogs aren't a big deal as many of them have one, including Margaret Cho, Fred Durst and Moby.

But what made this blog stand out was that the mystery celeb's supposed to be an A-List film actor, or as he puts it: "I can tell you what it's like to see your picture on the magazine rack every now and again when you pay for groceries." Plus he's dished out some interesting shit, including one where he hooks up with a famous actress in Cuba. And then there's the one where he visits a New York brothel and gets a massage from an aspiring actress who eventually ends up in "The Passion."

He's actually a pretty good writer and provides some interesting stories and insights about the yacht-infested, paparazzi-ditching, Penthouse-models-skinny-dipping life of a movie star. But the blog's rapidly gained a major following, many of whom are entertainment industry people trying to figure out the true identity of "Rance." Consequently I've noticed his entries have been getting more and more vague about details. Soon he'll probably stop writing altogether (He's already resorted to guest bloggers).

Especially since Entertainment Weekly just had an article about the blog, listing the possible authors of this now-famous online journal: George Clooney, Jim Carrey, Ben Affleck and Owen Wilson. And of course this still could very well be a fake. But an entertaining fake nonetheless.
