Master P Calling All Unknowns ... For 'I Got the Hook-Up' Sequel!

12/4/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Master P is going back to slangin' cell phones for the big screen -- but this time he wants a bunch of nobodys to join him.

P tells us he's working on the sequel to his 1998 movie, "I Got the Hook-Up" ... only now, he'll be looking to cast some unknown talent to star in it.

We're told P plans to reprise his role, except with all the technology updates since '98. It's also gonna star some big names, including his son, Romeo, who's co-producing the flick with his pops. Here's the catch ... P's hosting an open casting call on social media to find an unknown actor to fill a big role, plus smaller ones too. 

P says he believes there's a lot of potential in social media standouts, and wants to give these folks their big break. And, of course, he wants any followers they can bring along.

One last thing -- the first 'Hook-Up' was distributed by Dimension, which is owned by Bob Weinstein. P says he hasn't decided on a distributor yet, but Dimension won't be 1 of 'em.

EXCLUSIVE

Jamie Foxx is back onstage ... and we got him!!!

Jamie dusted off the ol' stand-up mic Wednesday at HaHa Comedy Club in North Hollywood where he tried out a 10-minute set about his junk that had the crowd rolling. He said he was testing out material for his upcoming comedy tour. 

We're told Jamie didn't plan on taking the stage ... he was actually there to support his buddies from Speedy N Friends comedy series on Roll Out Live, but the spirit moved him to jump onstage.

Jamie's last comedy special was released back in 2003, right around the time he started acting and producing music.

Michelle Rodriguez This is a Maaaaan's World & It Sucks!!!

12/1/2017 7:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Rodriguez channeled her inner James Brown to explain why powerful men are falling like dominoes, and the world feels like it's in collapse -- we're missing the feminine spirit.

We got Michelle outside El Rey Theatre Thursday night in L.A., and it was so deep. She dropped her philosophy behind the wave of sexual assault allegations in entertainment and politics -- and it will make ya think.

And she's not just complaining. Michelle broke it all down, and offered a simple, yet effective, solution.

Warning: You might ponder this all day.

This one's gonna hurt, Jimmy Fallon -- but turns out Jessica Biel makes Justin Timberlake laugh his ass off, too ... plus, she's way hotter.

As for what the big joke was? It's possible Jessica and Justin were talking Christmas gift ideas?

Something in a box, perhaps?

Charlie Puth I'm a 90210 Kinda Guy!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Puth is on the move ... to Bev Hills.

Our real estate sources say he's now the owner of a super cool pad in the Trousdale part of Beverly Hills.

We're told he paid $9 million for the mid-century architectural home designed by Rex Lotery. It's got redwood everywhere you look and plenty of windows, which open to canyon views.

The house has landscaped motor court and an interior courtyard with a fountain. And he'll be able to rest easy because the house is securely gated ... important given what's been going on with celeb break-ins.

Charlie closes escrow today. He was repped by super realtor Kurt Rappaport.

Al Franken Getting Handsy with Zendaya On a Billboard, Anyway

11/30/2017 11:00 AM PST

Al Franken's infamous groping photo briefly co-starred with Zendaya on a movie billboard ... in the name of art. Street art.

The cropped image of Franken reaching his hands out -- over Leeann Tweeden breasts in the original image -- showed up Thursday morning on an L.A. billboard for Zendaya's upcoming movie, "The Greatest Showman."  You can see ... the end result was just creepy.

Street artist Sabo took credit for the job ... showing a before and after of his "art" on Twitter.

The billboard, just off the 405 freeway, was Franken-free again by 10:20 AM Thursday. We're sure Zendaya's glad to be flying solo again.

Breaking News

Jim Nabors, who starred in the massive '60s hit, 'Gomer Pyle,' died Thursday.

Nabors became famous as the bumbling mechanic on "The Andy Griffith Show" and then went on to do his own show, which ran for 5 years.

He also appeared in movies, including "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" and "Cannonball Run II."

He also was an accomplished singer, who recorded dozens of albums and scored 5 gold and 1 platinum records.

One of his iconic songs is the staple of the Indy 500 ... "Back Home Again in Indiana." He last appeared at the race in 2014.

Nabors was gay and long before social media there was gossip -- which was false -- that he secretly married Rock Hudson.

In real life, Jim was married to his partner of more than 40 years. They lived in Hawaii.

Nabors was 87.

RIP

11/30/2017 10:41 AM PST

Mark Hamill's no longer two-wheeling it ... and he's even got a pep to his step.

Luke Skywalker was back on his feet Thursday on his way to 'GMA' to promote 'The Last Jedi.' Mark stopped on his way out to sign autographs, took a pic with a fan and even struck a pose.

It was a huge difference from when we saw him at JFK Monday ... slumped in a wheelchair and doing his best to cover his mug. As we reported, Mark said he was just trying to avoid autograph seekers who "gouge true fans later on eBay."

Guess he didn't want to Force the point any further.

EXCLUSIVE

Billie Lourd could be shopping for a Grammy night outfit soon ... now that her late mom Carrie Fisher's been posthumously nominated.

We got Billie in Bev Hills Tuesday, hours after Carrie's 2016 memoir, "The Princess Diarist," earned a spoken word nom. She was beaming about the honor, and wouldn't rule out accepting the award for her mom ... if she wins, of course. Use the Force, Billie. 

Speaking of which, we tried to get some 'Last Jedi' scoop from Billie, but apparently being Princess Leia's spawn isn't even enough for Disney to risk spoilers getting out.

Daveigh Chase, the creepy little well girl from "The Ring," just got herself in a hole, 'cause she was busted for joyriding in a car that was reported stolen ... TMZ has learned.
