Jack Black Dewey Reunites with Spazzy McGee ... From 'School of Rock'

11/15/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jack Black was in full rock god mode Tuesday night in Chicago during a Tenacious D set -- which served as the perfect setting for a "School of Rock" reunion with one his "students."

Professional drummer Kevin Clark -- who played Freddy, aka Spazzy McGee in 'SoR' -- tells TMZ ... he got in touch with Jack when he heard TD was playing a gig in town, and that Jack made sure he was given tickets and backstage access at the Riviera Theatre. 

Perhaps, unsurprisingly, the reunion made for some epic nostalgia ... almost like it was 2003 all over again. We're told Jack and Kevin hadn't seen each other in a while.

Fun fact: Kevin hasn't acted since starring in the film, and says he only got the role at the time 'cause he could actually play the drums. Freddy plays in his own band now -- Dreadwolf -- and gave Jack one their custom shirts, which he threw on immediately.

BTW ... the actress who played Katie -- the bassist in the film, Rebecca Brown, attended Jack's TD show Wednesday night. 

You know what that means ... stick-it-to-the-man-eosis is spreading!!!!

'Jay & Silent Bob' Star Jason Mewes Here's When Reboot is Comin'

11/7/2018 11:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kevin Smith's new movie about Jay and Silent Bob is still in the works -- despite a delay -- according to Jay himself ... who's giving us a major update on the status of their reboot.

We got Jason Mewes Tuesday night at Caroline's Comedy Club in NYC where he told us Smith's forthcoming sequel to the 'J & SB' franchise -- "Jay and Silent Bob Get a Reboot" -- will head into preproduction early next year ... and that filming will begin soon after that.

This is not a drill! This is an actual image from my laptop! Yes, Kids - @jayandsilentbob are coming back! Here's the story: Sadly, Clerks III can't happen (one of our four leads opted out of the flick). So I worked on a #Mallrats movie instead... which also didn't happen because it turned into a #Mallrats series. I've pitched said sequel series to 6 different networks only to find no takers thus far. Mind you, I'm not complaining: nobody gets to make EVERYTHING they wanna make in this business (do they?). And I've been lucky to make anything at all, there's so much competition out there, so many much cooler ideas from fresh folks. And besides: I had #comicbookmen and then @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers (which all came together so crazy quickly), and the podcasts and #fatmanonbatman. With all of that, how could I bitch about no Clerks III or Mallrats 2? Then when I started directing @thecw shows, it was such a slice of Heaven on Earth, I happily put my Askewniverse sequels to the side. Since I sold #Clerks and #Mallrats years ago, they're owned by others, which limits my moves with my own material. I don't mind: back in the day, all I ever wanted to do was sell my stuff so I could be in the movie biz in the first place. So I don't own Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy or #Dogma... But I DO own #jayandsilentbob. So while I love playing with someone else's new toys on @cwtheflash and @Supergirl, I'm getting eager to play with my old toys again in the inter-connected View Askewniverse I spent the first half of my career creating. And so all last month, I had the time of my life laughing while writing "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" - a fun flick in which the Jersey boys have to go back to Hollywood to stop a brand new reboot of the old "Bluntman & Chronic Movie" they hated so much. It's a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that pokes fun at the movie business's recent re-do obsession, featuring an all-star cast of cameos and familiar faces! And I already met with the good folks at Miramax and they're into it, so I'm hoping we'll be shooting in the summer! Never give up, kids. You CAN do anything you want in life, so long as you're patient and malleable. #KevinSmith

Kevin teased a sequel early last year, and reports said that production was supposed to start this past summer. It doesn't appear that actually happened, but Jason's got a bit of an explanation there too.  

It also doesn't seem like Jason's 100% certain of this latest timeline he's providing here. But, he's holding out hope things go according to plan. Knock on metal, right?

Demi Lovato Hanging Out Again with Sober Buddy

11/5/2018 11:47 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Demi Lovato has what appears to be a constant companion, and he has a few things in common with her that are now the centerpiece of her life -- addiction and sobriety. 

We just got these photos of Demi and clothing guru Henry Levy grabbing coffee Sunday night in West Hollywood ... and, as you can see, they're getting really close. Demi's got her arm around Henry's waist, and he's got his draped over her shoulder. 

We've learned Demi and Henry went to an AA meeting Sunday night -- he's been in and out of rehab since he was a teen. We're told Demi and Henry actually met a few years back when both were in rehab.

Demi and Henry's Sunday outing comes on the heels of their fancy sushi dinner Saturday night at Matsuhisa in Bev Hills ... when we first saw them together having a great time over dinner.

Demi definitely enjoys Henry's company ... because they were back at it again the next day, smiling, laughing and looking cheerful as they waited on iced coffees. 

Lovato was in rehab for 90 days. We broke the story, she almost died July 24 after OD'ing at her Hollywood Hills pad. She was hospitalized for 10 days, and then checked into rehab at the beginning of August.

EXCLUSIVE

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino had a heart-to-heart before his wedding ... but the sit-down wasn't with his soon-to-be wife. It was with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.

The 'Jersey Shore' stars had a powwow Wednesday night at the Westin Governor Morris Hotel in Morristown, NJ ... one day before Sitch weds Lauren Pesce. You hear Mike talk about Ronnie being his best man at his wedding and hopes one day Ronnie reverses the honor.

Mike and his fiancee rolled up to the hotel in an SUV and they beelined it for their room. Ronnie was already there when the couple checked in ... and a few hours later, Sitch and Ronnie had their chitchat in the lobby.

Mike just posted this ... "Today I marry my best friend, My College Sweetheart, My everything.  Together as a team we can accomplish anything ... I promise to be my best self everyday & make you proud to call yourself Mrs. Sorrentino."

Mike and Lauren are getting married just months before he heads off to serve an 8-month prison sentence for tax evasion.

There's a tough road ahead, but Mike's keeping it positive ... with the help of some baller wedding gifts.

Colin Kaepernick Shows Love to Eric Reid on NFL Deal ... It's Long Overdue!

9/27/2018 10:17 AM PDT
Breaking News

Colin Kaepernick says he's THRILLED his pal, Eric Reid, is back in the NFL -- but claims the safety shoulda been signed WAY earlier. 

"Congratulations to my brother [Eric Reid], an all pro safety who should have been signed the first day of free agency, who has signed a football contract," Kaep posted. 

"He has was the FIRST person to kneel alongside me. Eric is a social justice warrior, continues to support his wife, two beautiful daughters and communities in need."

Kaep and Reid were teammates on the 49ers and have been good friends for a WHILE. 

In fact, when the guys found themselves jobless after the kneeling demonstrations -- they hired the same lawyers to sue the NFL for collusion ... claiming they'd been blackballed. 

As for Kaep's claim Reid shoulda been signed sooner, he's right -- Reid's just 26 years old, has a Pro Bowl on his resume AND had 67 tackles and 2 picks last season.

Reid's new teammate, Torrey Smith, also commented -- saying, "I’m excited. It shouldn’t have taken this long, a person with his talent."

"We all understand the reason why."

"This says a lot about the men & the leaders here. They’re making a football decision, but Eric is also a great man and leader."

Kylie Jenner Handsy with BFF ... She's Turning 21 Too!!!

9/21/2018 9:09 AM PDT

Kylie Jenner brought the glamour and her BFF Jordyn Woods brought the glitz -- and together, the dynamic duo painted the town.

The ladies were all dolled up to get a head start on Jordyn's birthday celebration. She turns 21 Sunday but kicked things off Thursday with dinner at Petite in L.A. ... before heading off to Poppy. 

Kylie turned 21 over a month ago and clearly couldn't contain herself at the thought of her BFF coming THIS close to legal drinking age. They capped off their dinner with a small chocolate cake and giant sparkling candle. Nope, no cereal ... with or without milk.

Bottle service was flowin' later that night -- at least for Kylie, who held up a giant poster with Jordyn's face on it. 

They're obviously tight. Remember, Jordyn was front and center in Kylie's birth announcement and they're nearly inseparable -- except for that one time Jordyn flaunted the goods down in Mexico.

Happy turn-up!! 

Kanye & Tekashi69 Old School Meets New School ... Collab Coming?

9/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kanye West and Tekashi69 teamed up in South America to riff off each other, record some music and discuss future projects.

We're told Ye flew down to Colombia Tuesday to spend time with 6ix9ine ... the plan being for the 41-year-old and the 22-year-old rappers to come up with ways to bridge the gap between hip-hop generations.

Our sources say they spent hours in the studio recording together, but they also dished out some advice to one another. We're told Kanye gave Tekashi industry and business tips ... and he gave Yeezy insights on how the Internet is changing the rap game.

Our sources say the energy between the 2 was off the charts ... they both learned a lot from each other. No word yet if they plan to release any new tracks from their powwow, but if they do ... it'll be hard to top Kanye's new single with another hot young rapper -- Lil Pump.  

As we reported ... 6ix9ine got some new chompers while he was in Colombia too. He then flew overseas for a show in Moscow, where he got bum-rushed on stage ... before his crew gave the guy an old-school beatdown.

Colin Kaepernick Still Training for NFL QB Job ... Says Brandon Marshall

9/6/2018 8:01 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Just because he's a Nike star now doesn't mean Colin Kaepernick is giving up on his NFL comeback ... he's still working out like a maniac in the hopes of landing a QB job. 

That's according to one of Colin's close friends, Brandon Marshall -- who tells TMZ Sports he just spoke with CK and his sites are definitely still set on the NFL. 

"I talked to him today and yesterday," the Denver Broncos linebacker told us Wednesday night ... "He's in high spirits. He's excited."

We also know Kaep's been working with a personal trainer for months. Remember, he was out throwing passes back in March and we're told that's still part of his training regimen. 

Marshall and Kaepernick were teammates and fraternity brothers at the University of Nevada Reno -- and Marshall participated in Kaep's kneeling demonstration. 

"It's like really historic what he's doing," Marshall said about his friend ... referencing Kaep's collusion lawsuit against the NFL and the impact he's having on social justice issues. 

Marshall says he's spoken with other NFL players about Kaep -- and they're overwhelmingly supportive of the QB in his fight against inequality AND in his lawsuit. 

Marshall also gave a special message for his friend -- "Keep fighting for what you believe in man. Keep going. You're doing everything you believe is right."

"Keep rockin' man, I support you."

MLB Great Luis Gonzalez 'Blessed and Honored' To Be Pallbearer for John McCain

8/28/2018 12:21 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-MLB star Luis Gonzalez says the moment he was asked to be a pallbearer for John McCain was one of the highest honors of his life ... but admits it was weird, since McCain was still alive at the time. 

Gonzalez will be one of the 6 men selected to carry McCain's casket at his funeral on Thursday -- and tells TMZ Sports the late Arizona senator had been planning out the event for months. 

"I've known for a while," Gonzales tells us ... "[McCain's team] had contacted me a while back, a few months back to ask if I'd be willing to be a pallbearer."

"First of all, it's an honor. And secondly, he was still living at the time so it was a strange request."

Gonzo and McCain have been friends since the days Luis played for the Arizona Diamondbacks -- they would text, talk on the phone and attend events together. 

Luis says he was always impressed with McCain's knowledge and enthusiasm for sports -- noting he never wanted to sit in VIP suites in stadiums, he always loved hanging with the people in the bleachers. 

"He was a great person who cared about other people."

McCain's funeral service will take place on Thursday at the North Phoenix Baptist Church. NFL star Larry Fitzgerald -- another close friend of McCain's -- is scheduled to deliver a speech.
