On Compact Disc [TMZ TV]

013015_tv_tune_in_michael_shannon_launch_v2If there's one thing Elvis Presley loved ... it was cranking up the tunes on his portable CD player. That's what you might think if you saw the King rocking a DiscMan. What's that ya say? Not possible?

And then actor Michael Shannon slipped on some blue suede shoes ... and blew your mind! Boom. tmz-on-tv-3

Danny McBride

I'll Do an 'Eastbound and Down' Movie IF ....

EXCLUSIVE

013015_danny_mcbride_launchDanny McBride says we haven't seen the last of Kenny Powers ... but don't hold your breath.

McBride was on his way out of LAX when we asked about rumors of an "Eastbound and Down" movie ... he left the door open with a sad scenario. 

As for what it would take for a flick .... let's just say his "f****ing out" catchphrase is relevant.

'Harry Potter' Star

Hagrid Rushed to Hospital After Flight

1/29/2015 5:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0129-robbie-coltrane-tmz-01"Harry Potter" star Robbie Coltrane got off a plane Thursday and was immediately hospitalized after suffering severe flu-like symptoms during the flight ... TMZ has learned.

A rep for Coltrane -- who played Rubeus Hagrid -- tells us the actor fell ill during a British Airways flight from London to Orlando.

We're told paramedics met Coltrane at the gate, and took him to the hospital ... where he'll remain overnight for treatment. 

Coltrane went to Orlando for a Harry Potter convention ... and we're told Michael Gambon -- who played Dumbledore -- was on the same flight.

Someone on Twitter claims Coltrane was drinking heavily in a London airport lounge before the flight. If it's true, we don't know yet if that contributed to his illness.

Chris Pratt

Killer Choice For ...

The Next Indiana Jones [TMZ TV]

012915_tv_tune_in_chris_pratt_launchFresh off a hunting trip, Chris Pratt got hammered at LAX about the hottest casting topic in Hollywood: Is he getting fitted for one of those Indiana Jones fedoras???

He addressed the rumors, and let's just say ... there's a good chance he's got a bullwhip -- and maybe dead snakes -- in his luggage!tmz-on-tv-3

Chris Pratt

I'm The Next Indiana Jones ...

If You Say So, Sure?

1/29/2015 8:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012915_chris_pratt_launchChris Pratt is getting into "Indy" flicks -- and getting handy with a bullwhip -- at least everyone hopes he is ... and he's not doing much to squash the blockbuster rumor. 

If you missed it, there's been buzz that Pratt will be the next "Indiana Jones" ... and Wednesday night at LAX, our photog (and a clever autograph seeker) got Chris to answer the big question.

CP was on his way back from a hunting trip, and claimed he's been busy killing things in the woods -- so he tries to play the "ignorance is bliss" card at first.

But watch Pratt's short roundabout answers ... to us, it sounds like there's more than a chance.

Donald Trump

I'm Raging Mad ...

Over Chick Ghostbusters [TMZ TV]

012815_tv_tune_in_ghostbusters_launch_v3 Donald Trump isn't waiting for the new 'Indiana Jones' or the all-chick "Ghostbusters" reboot to even be filmed ... before blasting out his reviews -- and they ain't good.

Now, if we can just get Donald's take on real comedy -- Harvey's pitch for a “Titanic” remake. It's awfully hysterical ... but mostly just awful.tmz-on-tv-3

David Spade

I'm Ridin' Dirty for Six Figures

Scores Classic Movie Car

1/27/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

David Spade Joe Dirt CarDavid Spade has gained a ton of muscle ... under the hood of the nearly million dollar '69 Dodge Daytona he just snagged. 

David fell so hard for the model he drove in "Joe Dirt" and its upcoming sequel ... that he bid $900K on a sick fully-restored version of the Hemi-powered ride at Mecum Auctions last Friday.

The 426-hp copper-colored whip has had several other high profile owners ... like former NFL star Kevin Greene.

The real question: where's Spade gonna put the "Cowboy's Butts Drive Me Nuts!" bumper sticker?

 put hundreds of screaming mustached women on their knees ... just by showing up.

No, it's not a kinky Hollywood sex party ... hundreds of excited Japanese fans greeted Depp and fiancee Amber Heard at the Haneda International Airport in Tokyo Monday morning after arriving in town to promote his latest film, "Mortdecai."
 
The screaming fans let him know how glad they were to see him by sporting the same mustache he dons in the film ... but turns out they were just as pumped for him as they were for Heard.

The two did their duty by signing a few autographs, leaving dozens in happy tears. 

Check out the trailer ... maybe they should save a few for the movie.
 

Dermot Mulroney's Wife

Ditches Maiden Name ...

But Still Not Taking His

1/26/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0123-dermot-mulroney-wife-name-change-tmz-getty-01
Dermot Mulroney's wife desperately wants to go French -- even though her husband is Irish-American -- and she's filing legal papers to do it.

The "My Best Friend's Wedding" star has been married to Tharita Cutulle since 2008, but she's never changed her name. According to docs, she's finally ready to drop her unique name and switch -- not to Mulroney ... but to Prima Apollinaare.

As for why she's going from sounding like the scientific name for a fish ... to a fancy pasta? Maybe she's a theater buff. Guillaume Apollinaire was a famous French poet and playwright in the early 1900s. 

Or maybe she digs Apollonia from "Purple Rain." 'Memba her?

Courtney Love

Reunites With Daughter

After 5 Bitter Years

breaking news

0125-courtney-love-frances-cobain-hug-GETTY-01Courtney Love reunited with her daughter Frances Bean Cobain ... apparently closing the book on a feud that's been raging for years.

Love and Bean hugged it out Saturday at the Sundance premiere of "Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck" ... the first time they've been seen together in more than 5 years.

Remember, Courtney lost legal control over then 17 year-old Frances in 2009.  In 2012, Love accused ex Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of hitting on Bean.  

The 22 year-old blasted her mom over the allegation ... urging Twitter to ban her mom from the site.

Nothing is forever ... and that can be a good thing.

'The Interview'

Kim Jong Un Actor

Not a Fan of KJU

1/25/2015 7:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012515_randall_launchThe guy who played Kim Jong-Un in the "The Interview" won't be watching basketball games with Dennis Rodman in the DPRK anytime soon.

"Fresh Off the Boat" star Randall Park was leaving Chateau Saturday night when he talked to our photog about Kim Jong Un and whether his role has made him less or more popular with the ladies.

Asfor whether he'd accept an invite from KJU to visit North Korea?  Park's no dummy.
