The Real Vincent Chase
Tries to BLOCK 'Entourage' Movie
11/22/2013 1:22 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The "Entourage" movie could be derailed ... because of IDENTITY THEFT!
TMZ has obtained a cease and desist letter -- sent to Warner Bros. -- demanding that the studio make NO reference to Vinnie Chase, the main character played by Adrian Grenier. The man making the demand -- one Vincent Chase.
Who knew ... VC is a real guy -- a longtime Hollywood acting coach who's been teaching actors for more than 50 years. He reportedly met "Entourage" Exec. Prod. Mark Wahlberg in the late '90s.
In the cease and desist letter Chase says he believes the fictional character was named after him ... and says "Entourage" cannot use his name without his "express permission."
Chase claims he griped to producers when the TV show was on ... lots of letters but no lawsuit.
We reached out to Warner Bros. ... so far, no comment.

Fire up the flux capacitor -- It's been nearly 30 years since the first "Back to the Future" movie hit the big screen ... but Michael J. Fox and co-star Christopher Lloyd are still going strong.
Lloyd and Fox re-joined forces today in NYC while on the set of "The Michael J. Fox Show." Lloyd is set to appear in a cameo role ... but nothing will ever rival his timeless work as Dr. Emmett Brown.
FYI, Lloyd is now 75 years old.
I Got No Beef With Jim Belushi ...
After Movie Role Diss
11/22/2013 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Emile Hirsch won't let a little thing like nepotism bring him down ... telling us he's all good with Jim Belushi after the actor said his own son would play a better John Belushi than Emile in the upcoming biopic.
Emile already locked up the role and production is set to begin very soon ... but when we asked Jim about the casting choice this past weekend, he told us he wanted to keep it in the family.
So, how did Hirsch deal with Jim's comments -- he's actually cool with it ... or at least that's the way it seemed as the actor left Fig & Olive restaurant in L.A. last night.
Fun Fact: Fan boys FREAKED OUT when Batman producers announced Heath Ledger would play the Joker in "The Dark Knight" ... and he turned out to be awesome (Oscar, hello?!).
In other words ... hold your horses.
I'M DOWN TO POSE NUDE
... But Not For Playboy
11/22/2013 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Hugh Hefner's gonna be pissed ... 'cause "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain tells TMZ she's totally down to get naked in front of a camera ... but it will NEVER be for Playboy.
The Golden Globe winner was leaving the Brentwood Country Mart yesterday when we congratulated her on locking up the cover of Vogue -- and Jessica told us for her next shoot, she's hoping to do something a little more "risque.'"
So, naturally, we brought up Playboy ... but Jess shot that down hard -- saying, "I'll be naked in other magazines but not Playboy."
For the record, Chastain's not just talking the talk -- she's been naked in a couple of movies before "ZDT" ... including "Lawless" and "Jolene" ... the latter of which happens to be available on Netflix.
Chazz Palminteri's also in "Jolene" ... but don't worry -- he's totally clothed.
Brad Pitt Is Batman's Next Alfred
... If I Had My Pick
11/21/2013 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Brad Pitt would be the perfect man-servant for Ben Affleck in the new Batman vs. Superman movie ... so says Sir Michael Caine, who played Alfred in the last movie.
TMZ spoke with Sir Michael outside Craig’s in Weho last night … and he suggested that a younger man fill his shoes in the upcoming movie … and officially nominated BP for the role of Alfred J. Pennyworth.
Not sure how Brad would feel about dry-cleaning the Bat-suit and scrubbing down the Bat-cave while Ben’s out saving the day … but it would definitely add some sex appeal to the role.
Or maybe Michael Caine can just play Alfred forever … please.
FLIPS OUT on Fan
'I'll Make You Eat Your Cell Phone!'
11/20/2013 9:23 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sean Penn went nuclear on a fan in a fancy San Francisco hotel last night -- threatening to jack the guy up after Sean caught him trying to sneak a cell phone pic ... and TMZ has the explosive footage.
Penn was at the Lobby Bar at the St. Regis Hotel in the Financial District ... when he saw a flash go off from another patron's cell phone and realized the guy was trying to take a photo.
A witness at the bar tells TMZ ... Penn bolted after the guy (who wasn't a paparazzo) ... and screamed at him, "Do we look like f**king zoo animals?"
Penn -- who was in town to speak at a sales conference -- also grabbed the man's phone and slammed it to the ground.
That's when our video begins ... and you can hear Penn yelling, "I'll make you eat the phone ... get the f**k out of here!!"
Moments later, a clearly irritated Penn complained to hotel management -- and can be heard saying, "You should do something about that."
We're told hotel management approached the fan and asked him if he wanted to call the police -- but the man declined and then left the bar.
FYI -- we're also told the man had attended the sales conference where Sean was speaking and was wearing his name tag at the time of the bar confrontation.
We reached out to the St. Regis -- but they have no comment.
'Waterboy' Star Peter Dante
Violent Threats & Racial Slurs
'I'll Have Adam Sandler F**k You Up'
11/19/2013 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Waterboy" star Peter Dante -- who's been in just about every single Adam Sandler movie -- was thrown out of an L.A. hotel last week after calling a staffer a "n**ga" and a "f**got" ... and the craziest part, he admitted the whole thing on camera to TMZ.
Here's what we know ... Dante (who also played the weed dealer in "Grandma's Boy") was kicked out of the J.W. Marriott in Santa Monica early Friday morning after screaming at the overnight staff.
According to the hotel incident report, obtained by TMZ, Dante began screaming at staffers around 1AM because he wanted a new room key ... and was pissed that staffers didn't recognize him.
A staffer, who happened to be black, tried to help Dante ... but the actor exploded, telling one of his friends, "You better tell this n**ga to give me my fucking room key before I f*ck him up ... he clearly doesn't know who the f*ck I am."
Dante continued to berate the staffer -- "N**ga do you know who I am? I'm a black belt and you're a black person, I will f*ck you up."
He also directed his venom toward a Latino parking valet -- "Hey Mexican, this is Santa Monica, do you know where you are? We don't need you."
That's when Dante upped his threats by dropping some famous names -- the report states, "[Dante] threatened to have Suge Knight, Busta Rhymes and Adam Sandler come to my house and 'f*ck me up.'"
According to the report, Dante also ranted that he was part of the Hells Angels ... and bragged that he has major Santa Monica PD connections who "knew him very well and they weren't going to help me at all."
In fact, the report says when cops arrived, it became clear that one of the officers "knew Mr. Dante and had already taken his side." According to the report, the officer instructed a hotel staffer to give Dante a full refund ... but it's unclear if the staffer complied.
A rep for the SMPD tells TMZ ... "We deny the allegations. Nobody gets special treatment because of their status." The rep also pointed out they've arrested all sorts of famous people including Al Michaels and Josh Brolin.
As for Dante, he eventually left the property ... and just a few days later, TMZ found him strolling around L.A. When we asked him about the incident, Dante told us he drops the n-bomb all the time because his black friends, like NBA star Marcus Camby, are cool with it.
And after he tries to explain why he's not a hateful person ... Dante dropped yet ANOTHER slur -- telling us, "[think] I'm worried about Harvey Levin? You can suck my d*ck too you f**got."
In His 'Fifty Shades' Replacement
11/19/2013 4:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam harbors no grudges ... giving nothing but props to fellow actor Jamie Dornan -- who will be replacing him in "Fifty Shades of Grey."
But here's the deal ... Charlie hasn't seen a frame of Jamie's work. So how does he know Jamie will kill it? It's all about the person doin' the pickin.'
It's been said Charlie dropped out of the flick because of scheduling issues, but there's a buzz he thinks it would have been a wonky career move.
'It's a Wonderful Life' Star
Sequel Could Be Awesome
... Or Total Crap!
11/19/2013 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who played 4-year old Tommy Bailey in the classic flick "It's a Wonderful Life" says the recently announced sequel has a chance to be great ... but in the wrong hands ... the movie could turn into a steaming hunk of Christmas dung.
TMZ spoke with Jimmy Hawkins who says he doesn't have any beef with the new "Wonderful" producers for attempting to revive the flick ... but thinks the whole project could fall apart if the script is bad ... or if the right director isn't hired.
The now 72-year old actor says Frank Capra -- the director/producer of the original -- tried pitching a sequel for years when I.A.W.L. first came out in 1947 ... but, at the time, studios felt making a sequel would be sacrilegious.
Jimmy confirms he's in talks to reprise his "Tommy" role ... but says discussions are still extremely preliminary because he wants to make sure it's not just "stunt casting."
Hawkins adds, "I wish them all the luck in the world."
Sorry, Emile Hirsch ...
You're No John Belushi
11/18/2013 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Emile Hirsch is a crappy choice to play John Belushi in the recently announced biopic -- at least according to Belushi's brother ... who gave us his fully biased opinion on who should get the gig.
Jim Belushi was at LAX when he told us he likes Emile as an actor -- just not as an actor playing the late great Belushi ... and instead thought Robert Belushi should play him.
Of course, RB is Jim's son ... so it's hardly an objective choice on his part -- but he does offer a couple of good reasons why 33-year-old Robert could do it, including the whole blood line thing.
Sure, Emile's an A-lister, but Robert is John's nephew -- so we gotta ask ...
