Usain Bolt ... the next Transporter?!??

That's what he wants ... with the Jamaican super athlete telling TMZ Sports he "lives for" being an action star in the next phase of his life -- as long as he can be in a flick with Jason Statham

Of course, the two are friends ... and Statham even had Usain at the 'Expendables' premiere back in the day.

EXCLUSIVE

1207_George-Jung_TMZGeorge Jung, the guy Johnny Depp played in "Blow," is back in jail for violating his parole, but he's blaming it all on his manager.

Sources close to the infamous cocaine smuggler tell us George took a trip to San Diego to make a little cash for appearing at an event. We're told he couldn't get a hold of his parole officer, but Jung says his manager insisted it'd be okay ... since it was only a 4 hour work trip.

That wasn't the case. He was arrested Tuesday when he got home to Sacramento.

According to jail records ... George, who was released in 2014 after serving 20 years for running drugs, was booked in Sacramento County jail on Dec. 6. He's not eligible for bail, given his record, so he's still behind bars until his next court date.

'Django Unchained' Actress Leaking Audio Was Unethical ... Commission Rules

12/6/2016 2:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1206_daniele-watts_jim_parker_brian_james_lucas_facebook-3The cop who cited a "Django Unchained" actress for having sex in public has been called out for leaking audio of the incident, and it's gonna cost him some dough.

The L.A. Ethics Commission ruled Tuesday former LAPD Sergeant Jim Parker broke city rules by releasing the audio to TMZ following the 2014 incident with Daniele Watts, who Parker busted for having sex with her BF in their car in broad daylight.

The Commission said Parker was sharing confidential info related to the case when he released it, so he'll now have to pay a $500 fine ... instead of the max $10,000 he was facing. 

1206_daniele-watts-scene-tmz-swipeYou'll recall ... when Parker and his partner responded to the scene, Watts played the race card big time. She later apologized to the officers, and pled no contest to the charges.

1206-jennifer-aniston-dress-tag-INSTAR-01Jennifer Aniston is either a returnaholic or her stylist committed a major faux pas sending the celeb to her NYC movie premiere with her jacket's retail tags waving ... "HELLO!

We're banking on the latter, but either way ... looks like Jen was trying to shed the pricey cover up as she walked into the "Office Christmas Party" event Monday night. Her assistant better have a tight grip on it this morning though.

Awesome.

Marlon Brando Son Defends 'Last Tango' Scene ... He Did NOT Plan a Rape!

12/5/2016 11:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Marlon Brando's son is coming to his late father's defense, saying there's no way his father would ever have plotted to sexually violate his "Last Tango in Paris" co-star.

Marlon's oldest living son, Miko Brando, tackled the controversial confession from the film's director, Bernardo BertolucciA video recently surfaced of Bertolucci saying, in 2013, he and Brando planned at the last minute to use a stick of butter on Maria Schneider during the sex scene, and never gave her any forewarning.

In the vid, Bertolucci says he wanted an authentic reaction to rape ... not acting. Schneider, who died in 2011, has said no intercourse took place, but she was shocked and strongly objected to the way things went down. 

Miko calls the story pure crap, and says, "That's not the human being" my father was. He has a theory about why Bertolucci ever made the comment. 

Celebs like Jessica Chastain, Chris EvansAnna Kendrick and Ava DuVernay have expressed outrage at Brando and Bertolucci for essentially plotting to rape a woman -- but Miko's just not buying it.

EXCLUSIVE

1201-torrei-jamal-tmz-instagram-2Kevin Hart's ex-wife, Torrei, has rebounded with a new man.

Torrei's rep confirms she's been dating Jamal Woolard -- best known for playing Biggie Smalls in "Notorious," "All Eyez on Me" and seemingly every other movie about Notorious B.I.G.

We're told they've been together for 2 months, and clicked after meeting on the set of "Turnt." Torrei co-starred and co-produced the flick, while Jamal co-stars and is the executive producer. So, yeah ... they spent a lot of time together.

Kevin and Torrei divorced in 2011, and although it was messy at first ... they're on great terms now.

FUN FACT: Jamal's 6'3" ... nearly a full foot taller than Kev. Good luck, Torrei!

'Frozen' Look-Alike Nude Pics Are Too Fat To Be Me!

12/4/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1201-anna-faith-elsa-scared-INSTAGRAM-01Anna Faith Carlson, the model who's a dead ringer for Elsa from "Frozen," is claiming a website posted fake nude pics of her ... and says the proof is in the waistline.

The site Celeb Jihad posted a bunch of "before-and-after" nude selfies it claims are Anna showing off a recent boob job. The pics show a topless woman with tan lines, and bandages under her breasts. It appears to be a post-op shot.

Anna's team claims that's not her in the pics, insisting the nude chick is "much heavier than Anna has ever been in her life." They added, Anna is in "great shape with a very small waist" ... unlike the alleged impostor.

They say there are also differences in the nose, teeth and face that prove Anna's NOT the nudie pic chick. Her camp is threatening to sue if the post isn't deleted.

So, no -- she's not willing to let it go.
