Sylvester Stallone

What's Good for Mayweather ...

Is GREAT for 'Creed'

7/26/2015 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-sly-stallone-instagram-01Floyd Mayweather won't be in 'Creed,' but his swag will be -- Sylvester Stallone tapped Floyd's favorite boxing glove company to be the official mitt of the movie.

Elvis Grant, CEO of of Grant Worldwide tells us Sly called him personally to request his company outfit all the fighters in the latest Rocky flick. It's no wonder Stallone reached out -- Mayweather uses Grant exclusively for his fights, and umm ... last we checked that guy's 48-0. 

The only thing cooler than having your company's gear in a Rocky movie ... is being in the movie yourself -- and Grant got that too. He says Sly gave him a cameo. 


Big Show

John Cena's 'Trainwreck' Junk

... Is Too Much for Me

7/25/2015 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Cena naked might be a glorious thing to behold, but his fellow WWE star Big Show draws the line at seeing the man's semi-erect penis on a massive movie screen.

We got Big Show at LAX, and filled him on (spoiler alert) Cena's scene in "Trainwreck" where he shows off a good bit of his championship goods. The big man's reaction is priceless -- at first, he's totally comfortable, but the details of the scene push him over the edge ... in a funny way.

Also comical -- our photog suggested Big Show, who played college hoops at Wichita State, could have taken Shaquille O'Neal back in the day.

Yes, he's a 7-footer ... but every man knows his limit.

'Zoolander 2' Star

I Scored a Really, Really ...

Ridiculously Good Deal

7/25/2015 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727-cyrus-arnold-instagramCyrus Arnold scored the sweet role of playing the son of Derek Zoolander in the upcoming "Zoolander 2" and he signed a deal so good ... Maury Ballstein must have gotten it for him. 

According to his contract, Arnold will make around $25k for an eight week shoot -- working alongside Ben Stiller, Christine Taylor and probably tons of other huge stars since they'll ALL being making cameos.

But the best part of 13-year-old Cyrus' deal -- besides the paycheck -- is his travel clause. He and one parent get to fly to the set in business class! He can also fly his brother and other parent out once, but they have to fly coach.

Them's the breaks. 

NFL's Thomas Jones

I Got Suge Knight's Back ...

In New NWA Movie

7/24/2015 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former NFL star Thomas Jones definitely has muscle ... but now he's going to be muscle ... playing one of Suge Knight's bodyguard's in the new NWA biopic "Straight Outta Compton."

Jones ... who's been doing a lot of acting now that his playing days are over ... was out in Hollywood when we asked him about his blossoming new career. 

TJ tells us he has a role in one of the biggest movies of the summer. We had to do some extra digging to find out who he plays -- a member of Suge Knight's pre-Death Row records entourage.

FYI -- Thomas has another movie "Runaway Island" premiering on TV this weekend ... we're guessing it'll have a lower body count. 

Check out the clip.

7/21/2015 11:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-church-of-scientology-splashTom Cruise and Scientology and Maverick and Goose are all coming together for one totally ... expected and not the least bit shocking event. 

The Church's Celebrity Centre in Hollywood is featuring its main wingman in "Top Gun" for summer movie night this week, and they're getting the word out with a few banners around town. 

They're not even trying to play against type anymore.

Coming soon: The 'Mission Impossible' trilogy, "War of the Worlds," "Risky Business" -- but definitely NOT "Battlefield Earth" ... we're guessing.

Paz De La Huerta

I Want $55 Million

For the Worst Movie EVER

7/20/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717-paz-de-la-huerta-TMZ-01Paz De La Huerta claims an unscrupulous movie director and an ambulance chaser ruined her career ... a career she claims is worth $55 million, which is what she's gunning for in a new lawsuit.

It's a pretty amazing story. Paz starred in what many consider the worst movie of all time -- "Nurse 3D." She played a nurse hell-bent on murdering cheating, scummy men.

Now here's the problem that triggered the lawsuit. Paz claims she was shooting a scene where an ambulance was supposed to speed by, but it ended up clipping her. Paz says she suffered a spinal fracture and told movie execs she was going to file a worker's comp claim.

That's all the director needed to hear. According to Paz, he decided she was a pain in the ass so he had a lousy actress dub her voice in the ambulance scene and other scenes as well.

The movie tanked, bringing in a grand total of $5k opening weekend. Critics panned the flick, pointing to Paz's monotone performance.

So she says her career is cooked, and since she was making around $2 million a year, she believes that would total $55 million, plus punitive damages.

And that's not all. She wants the judge to order the director to re-dub the voice in the movie with hers. Bad idea ... it could become another "Avatar" and she could lose out on that $55 mil.

'Southpaw' Star

Hey 50 Cent, If You Need a Loan ...

Disney's Hooking Me Up

7/19/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0717-oona-laurence-GETTY-01If 50 Cent needs a few bucks to get by, he should hit up his 12-year-old "Southpaw" co-star Oona Laurence, who just got setup for a huge payday on a new Disney franchise. 

Laurence -- who plays Jake Gylenhaal's daughter in "Southpaw" -- just signed on for the Disney reboot of “Pete’s Dragon" ... plus 2 more sequels. Oona gets $100k for the first film, $200k for the second and $400k for the third.

Depending on box office numbers ... she could earn up to a $50k bonus on the first movie, and up to $100k for the second.

Keeps this kid's number, Fiddy


John Cena

I'll Never Quit WWE

... Even If Acting Takes Off

7/18/2015 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Cena says he'll NEVER turn his massively ripped back on the WWE -- claiming he wants to work with the organization in some capacity FOR LIFE ... even after he's too old to get in the ring.

It's an interesting statement considering Cena's in one of the biggest movies in theaters this weekend, "Trainwreck" -- and his acting career is blowing up. 

But don't count on Cena ditching Vince McMahon for Hollywood -- 'cause in NYC this week, he told us the org. is basically part of his DNA. 

"I dont think I'll ever be done with the WWE," Cena said ... noting that if his body ever can't handle the rigors of the ring, he hopes to transition to either the announcer's table or something else behind the scenes. 

BONUS -- Our photog Adam asked Cena for some squat advice on the street. Cena obliged ... and then shamed him appropriately. 

Miles Teller

I Can Out Dance EVERYONE Except ...

7/16/2015 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miles Teller will smoke any actor on the dance floor … says Miles Teller.

The "Whiplash" and “Fantastic Four” star was outside Mastro's in Bev Hills -- admittedly after a few adult beverages -- and we brought up his awesome dancing skills

Maybe it was the drinks talking, but Teller bragged ... and even challenged everyone else in Hollywood, with the exception of  -- Chris Brown!

His explanation's pretty funny, and includes the words -- "Miles Teller calls Chris Brown a bitch, and says he can out dance him any day."

If it sounds like Miles said that ... he didn't. Not exactly. Check out the clip.
