Ryan Seacrest That Dude's Mug Shot Looks Just Like Me!!!

9/22/2017 7:13 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

THIIIIIISSSS ... is "American Idol" meets "Cops."

The person in this mug shot is NOT Ryan Seacrest ... but, c'mon, the resemblance is uncanny!!!

One of our eagle-eyed users was perusing the booking photos when she found this guy -- who looks strikingly similar to Seacrest.

In fact, they're both the same age (42) and height (5'8").

Unfortunately for this dude, cops say he was recently busted on a meth charge -- so that sucks. Hopefully, he can get his life together.

But if Seacrest ever wants to call in sick ... hey, we got your stand-in!!

'Clerks' Star Lisa Spoonauer Died of Painkiller Overdose ... Battled Cancer, Lung Disease

9/22/2017 7:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Clerks" star Lisa Spoonauer died from an accidental overdose of a powerful painkiller ... TMZ has learned.

According to the Ocean County Medical Examiner in NJ, Lisa died of acute and chronic intravenous use of hydromorphone ... the generic brand of the narcotic, Dilaudid. She was also battling cancer, anemia, lung disease and immune deficiency ... all of which contributed to her death.

Lisa, who played Caitlin Bree in the cult classic film ... was only 44 when she died in May. At the time, her family said she'd been fighting undisclosed illnesses for years.

Her death prompted "Clerks" writer/director Kevin Smith to post an emotional tribute.

Kevin Hart's Sex Tape Partner She Works the Pole But Just for Fun

9/22/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart's sex tape partner has big stripper moves ... and she's even armed with an official license to strip.

Montia Sabbag showed up some pretty impressive pole action at The Golden Banana strip club in Boston, where she bartended between 2011 and 2013. We're told the video was shot after hours and was just for giggles.

Montia said in her news conference Wednesday with her attorney, Lisa Bloom, she's not a stripper. Turns out, she has an official adult entertainment license in Nevada, which gives her the right to work in any capacity in a strip joint. So if she wanted to work the pole for more than just fun, she could.

Gotta say ... she could make a living.

As we reported ... Montia denies any involvement in the extortion plot against Kevin ... even though we're told her first lawyer requested hundreds of thousands from his team to take a lie detector test. Her new attorney says her client is now going to cops to help catch the real perps. 

As for Montia and stripping ... she says it ain't her. Definitely could be, though, as far as the state of Nevada's concerned.

EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Hart's clearly got a cheating problem and needs help to turn it around ... so says "Couples Therapy" star Dr. Jenn Mann.

We got the doc out in Bev Hills Thursday and had a couch session with her that was totally raw and uncut. She's not pulling punches here, so Kevin might not wanna listen.

Once a cheater, always a cheater? Do celebrities get a pass? Does having a kid on the way make things more complicated? Jenn tackles it all, and says there IS hope for Kevin.

The doctor is in.

Kardashian's DASH Store Woman with Gun, Knife Arrested

9/22/2017 3:35 AM PDT

The woman who pointed a gun at the cashier at the Kardashian's DASH store has been arrested.

Cops were able to use surveillance video to track down the woman seen here brandishing a knife. She's 35-year-old Maria Medrano. Cops went to her home Thursday night, executed a search warrant and found 2 airsoft guns ... similar to the one used by the perp in the first assault.

TMZ broke the story, the person who entered the store knocked down merch, left, and then came back wielding a knife, and that's when she was caught on surveillance video.

Medrano's been booked for assault and criminal threats. She's being held on $50,000 bail.

The video of her ranting with the knife is insane -- as is the fact news photogs didn't budge!

Quentin Tarantino's officially putting it out there -- if a studio wants him to direct a 'Star Trek' flick, then set the meeting ... STAT!

We got the director extraordinaire Thursday at LAX and asked him 'Star Trek' stuff ...namely, would he be down if they wanted him to direct. It's an interesting clip, because most directors who haven't sealed the deal are mum until the ink is dry.

Quentin seems game, but, with a big *. You see, Quentin's on a deadline.

"Big Brother" star Jessica Graf -- aka the anal invader -- wasn't feeling all the nudging about her butt poking ... so she bailed.

We got Jessica -- flanked by fellow co-star and bf Cody Nickson -- outside Clifton's Thursday night in downtown L.A. for the "Big Brother" cast party and our guy tried digging about her controversial schtick -- approaching unsuspecting houseguests from behind and surprising them with a 2-finger checkup.

Jessica's having none of it ... so fed up she stops the autograph sesh and takes it inside.

It's all fun and games ... until someone starts poking.

North West is her father Kanye's daughter when it comes to dealing with photogs, but she's also a mini Kim because she can sure steal the spotlight.

Kim, North and one of North's little pals were leaving an ice rink Thursday in the San Fernando Valley and were swarmed by paps. North chirps with her usual "no pictures, please" until mom steps in and reminds the kid what her dad told her to say ... "No questions!!!"

Jared Leto Ripped For Rock 'n' Roll

9/22/2017 7:31 AM PDT

Jared Leto lost 35 lbs. for "Dallas Buyers Club" and morphed into the gangly Joker for "Suicide Squad," but when he's just playing Jared the rocker in his band, 30 Seconds To Mars ... he's ripped!!!

Jared shared this pic of his hot bod on Instagram and asked folks to caption it. He also added the hashtag #walkonwater. It's the name of 30 Seconds' new single ... so, pretty genius marketing.

He's missing a few packs to a 6, but we'll let it slide on behalf of those bulging pectorals and the whole putting-the-rock-in-rock-star thing.

Good luck trying to get Dave Chappelle to chime in on Kevin Hart's drama... homie don't play that.

We got the Dave at Georgetown in D.C. and we wanted to know if he thinks Kevin's gonna have to address his indiscretions straight-up or not. As you're very much aware by now ... Kevin's in the middle of a sex tape extortion case.

Dave doesn't even let our guy finish the question before getting all diplomatic on us ... but he does share what Kevin's an expert at.

Morgan Freeman Must Think He's God to Take on Putin ... Says Russian News

9/22/2017 7:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

Morgan Freeman's pissed off all of Russia and is now public enemy #1 at the Kremlin ... if you're buying what Russia's state news is selling, anyway.

Freeman is getting blasted by the media over there for starring in a Rob Reiner-produced video that calls out Vladimir Putin for interfering in the U.S. elections, and President Trump for not responding to the cyber attack.

News outlets are now labeling him "Hysterical Freeman" ... bringing in psychiatrists who say he has a "Messianic complex" from playing God and the President. Russian film director Yuri Grymov said, "I think, the grandpa just got drunk" -- and one anchor reportedly dismissed Morgan as an overworked pothead.

Anyway, here's the video that's bumped 'Shawshank Redemption' from Russian cable for good.

Side note: Imagine if our Prez really did rock double earrings.

Oh, and to prove he's serious about his fight checks ... Floyd says he plans to post 'em on social media later today. He reportedly made around $300 mil per fight.

Xzibit Trump's More Racist Than Sorority Singing N-Word

9/22/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Xzibit is defending the white sorority chicks who went viral for singing the n-word, because he says they're small potatoes compared to what Prez Trump's been spewing.

When we got X to the Z at LAX Thursday he was willing to give the ladies of Alpha Phi a pass. After all ... as he says, they were just singing along with Kanye West's "Gold Digger" lyrics -- so, no harm, no foul.

On the other hand, if POTUS is expecting a pass for some of his outrageous comments -- it definitely won't be coming from Xzibit.
