To Pam Grier, today’s blind item isn’t just another actor who’s an asshole — he’s also a racist bastard. That’s because, we’re told when our blind item played the leading role in “The Witches Of Eastwick“, he had the last word when producers of the movie considered casting Foxy Brown.
According to our insider, our mystery man pulled rank over Grier which is why she ultimately wasn’t cast in the 1987 flick surrounding three single women. We’re told our blind item wasn’t secretive about his desire to act alongside an all-white line-up of women.

– in action.
