Ving Rhames to Producer: Do I Look Like a Bitch?

2/20/2010 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ving Rhames to Producer: Do I Look Like a Bitch?Ving Rhames claims he was stiffed by the producer of a movie he just filmed -- but luckily for him, a ball gag and a gimp had nothing to do with it.

Ving claims in a new lawsuit that he was promised $200,000 for six days of work on the movie "Red Canvas" -- but was only paid $175,000.

In the lawsuit filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Ving claims a "stop payment" was put on the final $25,000 check.

Ving claims the movie's writer/director/producer Kenneth Chamitoff promised he'd get the dough by January 25 .... but nothing.

Ving is suing Kenneth and Red Canvas Productions for the $25,000 plus $200,000 for fraud and breach of contract.

I was the stand in for Mr. Rhames and I never was paid on this project either. However, everyone was great to work with. Ken, keep up the great work man.
