Where Are They? Wednesdays: Linda Fiorentino

It was BoxOfficeBoredom.com’s own The Mike who asked ol’ Nate to dig up the where abouts of actress Linda Fiorentino, and I figured I would have no problem finding what happened to this actress of yesteryear.  You see, Linda was poised to be the next big thing in Hollywood a decade ago.  Her appearance in films like Men in Black and Dogma, were not a coincidence.  People thought she was going to be somebody.  Now everyone just wonders if she is going to be somewhere.

This week’s Where Are They Wednesday quest led me to scouring the internets, and talking to my sources around the world to just try and find what exactly happened to Linda Fiorentino.  The answer was always one of two things.  1.) I have no idea.  2.) Who the heck is Linda Fiorentino?

Linda Fiorientino was born Corlinda Fiorentino was born in 1958 and got her first gig as an actress in a movie called Vision Quest in 1985.  Vision Quest didn’t pan out as her break out role and she struggled as an actress until 1994 when she starred in The Last Seduction.  That inevitably led to her to critical acclaim and some starring roles, along side Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in Men In Black, and Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in Dogma.  She appeared in a few films in 2000 and 2002 and then * poof  * was gone.

What I was able to find out was very little.  Apparently Linda leads a private life off screen.  For all we know she could be selling drugs to children on the street corner, or solving world peace in a foreign country.  She returned to acting in 2009 in a little known film called Once More With Feeling but aside from that has done a great job of staying out of the limelight.

The only great connection to Linda Fiorentino that I could really find was that she was working on a script about the life of Hollywood PI, Anthony Pelicano.  Rumor has it that her former FBI agent boy toy was fired from his job doing illegal database searches that he claims were to help with the “script.”   I can’t help but think that having her name linked to such a strange case can’t be helping her movie star comeback if that is indeed in the works.

I know the point of Where Are They Wednesdays isn’t to take a guess, but I have a theory that maybe Men In Black is true and Linda got too close to “the truth.”  She was probably “flashy thinged” (aka Neuralized) by the real Men in Black and has forgotten how to act in Hollywood.  Hopefully she can be De-neuralized soon before we have all forgotten about her existence as well.  Thanks for making me search Mike, but alas Nate just plain doesn’t know.  If any of you have any Linda Fiorentino sightings or know what she is up to leave me some comments below.  Grenbeck…out!

  1. She lives in Wales and has an apartment in NYC, on the upper east side, basically a kept woman from what I understand. She went to the place all 40+ year old actresses who have put on a little weight go, the island of lost middle-aged actresses. She still considers herself a star but has no muscle in Hollywood to get anything made. The reason she was not a huge star was that she was a royal pain in the backside for directors, bitchy, demanded rewrites, and out of control at times. Since she had no track record of being the main star and making money, no one wanted to put up with her after a while. Her ex went to prison in 2007 as I remember. (Kevin Smith several times has talked about one of his biggest mistakes was casting her in the lead in Dogma.)


  2. Actually she and her boyfriend are doing well. It is funny how people put others down. To make themselves feel important. I’ll bet this is what keeps her away. I thought as she sang with me one day while in her house. What a delightful person. Her boyfriend was very kind too. Please don’t pretend to know it all. She left the business once in the early years too Dick Tracy.

    looking at options for another platform. I would be
    awesome if you could point me in the direction of
    a good platform.
