'Terminator' Star Priest Blesses Harley-Davidson Ride On, My Son

4/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Robert Patrick knows the dangers of the road, which is why he took his brand new Harley-Davidson to church to get it blessed.

Patrick -- best known as T-1000 from 'Terminator 2' -- took his hog to St. Thomas, the Apostle church in Hollywood, and got it blessed courtesy of Father Ian Elliott Davies. It's the second bike Patrick's made holy.

As for how it's done ... some words by the good Father, with a sprinkle of holy water before Sunday mass.  

Patrick's endgame ... protecting him from harm as he tools down the highway.

Doris Roberts Film Project in Jeopardy Cast Keeps Dying

4/19/2016 2:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0419_doris_roberts_gettyDoris Roberts' death is causing turmoil for a movie she was set to headline ... because she's the third big name attached to the flick who has died.

One of the last movie roles Doris signed on for was the female lead in "Old Soldiers" ... which is still securing its last bit of financing before it starts production.

Problem is ... 2 of the other major roles belonged to Mickey Rooney and James Best ... who died in 2014 and 2015 respectively.

Producer Dave Rotan -- who is adamant on using actual WWII-era celebs for the road trip comedy -- tells us he's still optimistic about the film, but admits his "window of opportunity is quickly closing" on filling out a cast of elderly legends.

Rotan tells us he's not going to recast Doris' role yet -- for fear of jinxing anyone else -- and is still banking on Clifton James (94), Hugh O'Brian (91), and Rance Howard (87) to make it through filming.

Godspeed.

0419_prince_harry_william_star_wars_launchWhen Harry met hairy ... it was pretty awesome.

The Prince and his bro, Prince William, got big ole wookiee hugs from Chewbacca and met a bunch of other 'Star Wars' actors Tuesday while touring Pinewood Studios near London.

William made the visit as part of his duties as President of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. Harry looked more than happy to tag along.

The royal bros even geeked out over lightsabers, but Will needs a better grip.

41916-sean-avery-instagramPretty big opportunity for ex-NHLer-turned-actor Sean Avery ... who says he just locked up a role in Mark Wahlberg's new movie about the Boston Marathon bombings. 

Avery posted a pic of himself in a Watertown PD uniform ... just days after announcing he got a role in "Patriots Day."

FYI -- The Watertown PD heroically hunted down the terrorists who placed the bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon. 

41916-mark-wahlberg-gettyUnclear how big of a role Avery will have, but he's clearly excited about it. 

As for Wahlberg, he was actually in character at the Marathon Monday to shoot scenes for the movie ... which co-stars John Goodman, Kevin Bacon and J.K. Simmons

'Barbershop 3' Actor Gets Minor Pay For Majorly Successful Flick

4/19/2016 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0418-michael-rainey-jr-GETTY-01Michael Rainey Jr. might want to start renegotiating a contract for the next 'Barbershop' movie after the HUGE success the third installment just had at the box office.

According to his contract, the teen actor, who plays Jalen in the movie, banked $65k for "Barbershop: The Next Cut" ... which took in more than $20 million.

It's a decent payday for Rainey -- who also has a key role in 50 Cent's TV show, "Power." The bad news is ... he's getting zero back from the movie's success. Then again, he's only 15.

Pray for a role in 'Barbershop 4.'

Racing Champ Simon Pagenaud I'M NOT SACHA BARON COHEN ... Please Stop

EXCLUSIVE

French IndyCar racing champion Simon Pagenaud has had enough ... enough of people confusing him for Sacha Baron Cohen's wacky french driving character from 'Talladega Nights.'

We got Simon at the Grand Prix of Long Beach -- shorty before he won the damn thing -- and asked about his uncanny resemblance to Jean Girard ... Ricky Bobby's Franco-Foe in 'Talladega Nights.'

The resemblance is pretty uncanny ... and SP says he gets heckled and taunted for it all the time ... but tells our camera girl he's ready for it to stop ... FOREVER.

Good luck, dude ... might have to learn to live with this one.

4/18/2016 6:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown's new documentary is revealing ... in the part that's been released, he never says he's sorry about beating Rihanna, but he sure feels very sorry ... for himself.

Chris' documentary, "Welcome to My Life," chronicles his rise to fame and the relationship with Rihanna that almost landed him in prison.

Brown says he felt like a monster after the beating as he watched the media go after him, and he even considered killing himself.

Watch the clip and listen closely ... it's more self-pity than remorse.

David Hasselhoff No More Alimony!!! I Want to Retire

4/18/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

041516-david-hasselhoff-pamela-bach-tmz-03David Hasselhoff wants time on the beach -- for retirement, not "Baywatch" -- but an obstacle is standing in his way ... his ex-wife.

The Hoff filed legal docs asking a judge to cut off all spousal support to Pamela Bach, whom he divorced in 2006. David's been paying Pam $21,000 a month for nearly 10 years, and he says she's made absolutely no effort to become self-supporting.

David tells the judge he's getting to the age where retirement should be looming, but he says that can't happen with a gigantic, monthly alimony nut.

The 63-year-old says he's looting his retirement account because his monthly gross -- $112,000 -- is not enough to cover his expenses and spousal support.

David says Pam, who's 52, is a talented actor and producer and could easily get a job.

Tom Cruise Movie Death Untrained Pilot Killed My Husband ... Widow Sues

4/15/2016 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0415_tom_and_alan_purwin_instagramThe widow of a pilot killed on the set of Tom Cruise's Pablo Escobar movie says her husband only died because the filmmakers put his life in the hands of an incompetent flier.

Alan Purwin, a veteran Hollywood stunt pilot, was working closely with Cruise on "Mena" last year. He was a passenger onboard a small plane that went down in the Colombian jungle on the last day of filming.

Kathryn Purwin is suing Cross Creek Pictures, the film's producer, saying Carlos Berl -- the man at the stick when the plane went down -- didn't have the "necessary skills" and had no business flying the aircraft. Berl was also killed in the crash.

Kathryn wants damages and funeral expenses from Cross Creek. 

Jamie Foxx I Keep My Glock Handy

4/15/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041516-jamie-foxx-gettyJamie Foxx has some brand new high caliber ink -- a 9mm handgun -- which he flashed onstage with Reese Witherspoon.

Jamie's Glock handgun tattoo was on display during his appearance at a Stand Up To Cancer event ... but like he's done in the past -- it's a fake. He got it for his new movie "Baby Driver," which comes out next year.

Handguns or tribal head tatts -- like he got for "Horrible Bosses" -- neither's gonna look good at Thanksgiving dinner. Good thing they're temps.

EXCLUSIVE

0414-barber-shop-cv-mgm-01The man trying to shut down the release of "Barbershop: The Next Cut" just got snipped by a judge.

Law enforcement tells TMZ the ruling was made Thursday in L.A. ... saying JD Lawrence didn't have enough to back up his claim the movie's release would damage him beyond repair.

TMZ broke the story ... Lawrence went after Warner Bros and Showtime for the 'Barbershop' movies and TV series ... saying there were uncanny similarities to scenes from his stage play "Scissors." Lawrence asked for at least $20 million in damages

A rep for Warner Bros and MGM (distributors for 'Next Cut') tells TMZ, "We are pleased the judge saw through this thinly-veiled attempt to extort the companies that have invested over 14 years and millions of dollars to bring the beloved 'Barbershop' franchise to audiences worldwide."

We're told the reception inside wasn't much warmer. Sources inside the event tell us some of Aniston's high-profile co-stars -- who'd been inside waiting for an hour -- were pissed she made everyone wait.
