Daniel Craig

Will Be Bond for Life!!

If Christoph Gets His Way

10/8/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Craig can make all the suicide threats he wants, but as long as he's drawing breath ... he will be playing 007 -- at least according to his "Spectre" co-star Christoph Waltz

Craig recently said he'd slash his wrists before he plays James Bond again -- which, of course, has fueled talk of a possible black Bond in the future. But no offense to the likes of Idris Elba ... "Spectre" baddie Christoph thinks Craig is just blowing smoke.  

As he left No Name Bar in Hollywood Wednesday night -- C-dub was pretty definitive about who the next Bond will be. Gotta figure the guy has SOME kinda inside info. No?  

Pam Anderson

No One Can Replace Me ...

In 'Baywatch' Movie

10/8/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pam Anderson made it short and sweet ... good luck to producers of the " Baywatch" movie finding someone as hot as her.

Pam was leaving Craig's restaurant in WeHo Wednesday night when our photog asked about the new flick starring Zac Efron and The Rock. She was very clear on the role of C.J.

As we reported, Pam has not been invited to appear in the flick, nor has Carmen Electra or any other cast member as far as we know.

'Mexican Madonna' Gloria Trevi

I'd Give Trump a Second Chance

But Only If ...

10/7/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Trevi's life story is so absolutely insane it became a movie, which she says brought her to tears -- but the "Mexican Madonna" cracked up when we suggested she perform for Donald Trump

Trevi survived one of the biggest scandals in the history of music -- after shooting to superstardom in the '90s, she and her bf/manager were accused of running a sex cult for minors. The couple fled to Brazil, and Trevi was eventually arrested there and imprisoned for nearly 5 years while awaiting trial.

Oh, and she managed to get pregnant while behind bars. When it was all said and done ... she was acquitted due to lack of evidence.

Soooo ... now that her biopic "Gloria" is out, and she's reviving her career -- we wondered if she'd consider playing Trump's inauguration.

Check out her answer ... she's NOT saying never.


Meryl Streep

Protesters Disrupt Big Premiere

10/7/2015 10:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A group of women -- more than a baker's dozen -- torpedoed the London premiere of Meryl Streep's new movie over women's rights issues ... which is ironic since Streep has been one of their champions.

It's unclear if Streep was on the red carpet yet Wednesday when the protesters laid their bodies on the ground -- showing their outrage for Parliament's decision to cut funding for domestic violence services.


The women -- part of a group called Sisters Uncut with a hashtag that reads #deadwomencantvote -- never said they have a problem with Streep or her movie, "Suffragette." The flick is about a group of women in England who championed the women's right to vote movement.

It's unclear if the protesters have issues with the film, or just used the venue to piss on Parliament. 

Tom Hanks

I Am the ...

Air Captain Now

10/7/2015 8:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1007-tom-hanks-sully-akmgsiTom Hanks is a dead ringer for Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, right down to the mustache, walking down a NYC sidewalk.

1007-subasset-chesley-sullenberger-apHanks is in the Big Apple filming the biopic on the retired US Airways pilot who miracuously crash landed on the Hudson ... killing no one. Clint Eastwood is directing.

Good things happen when Hanks plays captain -- in WWII, on hijacked tankers or on shrimp boats.

Brace for Oscar impact ... 


Mariah Carey

I'm Directing A XMAS Movie ...

And My Favorite 'Mean Girl' Is In It

10/7/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-mariah-carey-set-chair-TMZ-01Mariah Carey is directing a Hallmark movie for the holidays starring her favorite character, Gretchen Weiners from "Mean Girls."

Our Mariah people say she started working on "A Christmas Melody" Tuesday and made herself right at home in the director's chair. We're told Mariah had only one request, her favorite actress from her favorite movie star in the flick. Let's be serious ... she had more than one request.

Lacey Chabert, who played Gretchen Weiners in "Mean Girls" was more than happy to take the lead.  

Mariah won't appear in the movie but we're told her music is featured throughout. It's unclear if MiMi tapped into directing legend Brett Ratner for advice. 

'Maze Runner' Star Dylan O'Brien

Studio Steps In ...

If You Stole Artifacts, Give Them Back

10/6/2015 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1006-maze-runner-fox-01"Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" star Dylan O'Brien is getting called to the principal's office -- after he bragged about stealing Native American artifacts from the movie's set, he'll have to answer to 20th Century Fox studio execs.

O'Brien spilled the beans about jacking the stuff a couple weeks ago on "Live with Kelly & Michael" -- and did it in a pretty insensitive way ... admitting they'd been warned to leave any native artifacts they might stumble upon during filming. He said they took stuff anyway, and joked they'd been cursed because several cast members got sick.

TMZ spoke with Roch Hart, who manages Diamond Tail Ranch in Albuquerque -- where the movie was shot -- and he was pissed about O'Brien's comments. He told us he wasn't sure what, if anything, O'Brien and his co-stars really did take -- but said, "If the artifacts are not returned, we will be contacting our attorney."

Hart said he called 20th Century Fox, the film's distributor, on Tuesday to see if it would offer any assistance, and a few hours later he was told Fox would reach out to the cast and crew. Hart says he's been told the studio will find out if anything was taken, and if so ... make it right.

Leave things where you find them, kids!

Matthew McConaughey

Shaves Head

And it Burns!!!

1006-matt-mcconaughey-splash-01Matthew McConaughey won't be donning prosthetics for his new movie "Gold" to turn himself into a Mr. Burns look-alike.  

Oscar winners always go the extra mile. 


Musk, Favreau & Rubin

I Got The Tab ...

No, I Got It ... No, I Do ...

10/5/2015 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1005_Jon_Favreau_Rick_Rubin_Elon_Musk_lunch_malibu_fameflynetThis is the ultimate power lunch -- a table for three with the guy who co-created Def Jam, the guy who directed "Iron Man" and the guy trying to colonize Mars.

Elon Musk, Jon Favreau and Rick Rubin all met for lunch Sunday on the Malibu Pier.

Favreau has mentioned his friendship with the SpaceX and Tesla Motors CEO in the past, saying he based "Iron Man's" Tony Stark on Musk. No word on how they both know Rubin, but there is a Def Jam film in the works.

Just how powerful was this meal? Check their reported net worth stats: Rubin, $250 Million ... Favreau, $60 Million ... and Elon Musk, $13.2 BILLION!

So, who picked up the check? The correct answer is: It doesn't matter. 

James Caan

Out Of Misery

... And Back On Set

10/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-james-caan-on-set-TMZ-01James Caan wasted no time ... less than 48 hours after he went to an emergency room, he was back at work, and smiling with his co-star Louis Gossett Jr. 

TMZ broke the story ... the 75-year-old showed up to a Toronto hospital Tuesday night for a mild chest infection. He was treated and released, but we were told he'd be unable to return to set for a few days. No rest for the wicked.

Caan and LGJ are filming the family comedy "From Here to Infirmity."  

Sweet irony. 


Ben Affleck

What's Growing On

... With My Face?

10/1/2015 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-ben-affleck-grey-hair-old-FAMEFLYNET-01Ben Affleck is carefree when he goes back to his old stomping ground -- as in he don't care how long his beard gets or how disheveled his hair looks ...  'cause it's Bahston ya bastahds!

Ben was wicked scruffy and puffy as he walked around South Boston Wednesday scouting locations for his upcoming Prohibition era flick, "Live By Night." He's set to direct and star in the film.

We'll just assume (and hope) he's letting it grow for the role.

Or maybe Jennifer Garner just digs the look.


Mike Tyson

Kung-Fu Fightin'

... In Brand New Action Flick

10/1/2015 10:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mike Tyson's boxing days are over, but he's proving his fists still have fury ... starring in a new Kung-Fu flick alongside some of the biggest names in martial arts movie history.

The trailer just dropped for "Ip Man 3" ... the follow up to Ip Man 1 and 2 ... and it shows Mike calling punks out to see whose hands are the most lighting fast between a boxer and a Kung-Fu master.

Mike's in some GREAT company ... the movie stars Donnie Yen as Ip Man (The guy that trained Bruce Lee!!) and Sammo Hung, who between them have starred in over 239 movies ... most of which are the flying-kick-to-the-face variety.

Check out the trailer ... you get to see a little vintage Mike workin' the speed bag (he's still got it) but if you wanna see him throw down with the big boys on-screen ... you might need to buy a ticket.

We can't wait.

Russell Simmons

Someone Needs to Hit Michael B. Jordan

... With the Ugly Stick

10/1/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael B. Jordan needs to ugly himself up if he has any hope of playing Russell Simmons in the Def Jam biopic ... so says Russell Simmons himself!

1001-sub-jordan-simmons-tmz-01We got the Def Jam co-founder out at the Dolby Theatre in L.A. Wednesday night, and he not only gave his thumbs up to Michael B. ... but he thought Jonah Hill would make a great Rick Rubin.

1001-sub-hill-rubin-getty-01Universal is making the flick, which Russell is producing. Sounds awesome.
