Jerry Bruckheimer Sued -- Worker Claims, 'You Put Me in a Hole!'

EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Bruckheimer is one of the most powerful men in Hollywood who can make careers, and now a guy is suing him because he couldn't get his foot in the door. 

Isidro Jauregui -- a man working for a contractor -- claims he was at Bruckheimer's LA pad in December 2014 when he was invited to come in through the sliding glass door. According to the lawsuit, there was a metal plate at the base of the door, covering a 2-foot hole.

Jauregui says he stepped on the plate and it shifted, sending him down into the hole.  

It's also unclear what injuries he suffered, although he does say they were "severe."

Jauregui doesn't say exactly how much he wants, but worst case scenario ... Jerry can cover it.
