Odell Beckham I'm Spider-Man! ... Crashes Kids Bday Party!

8/21/2017 11:10 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

If your Odey senses were tingling at a trampoline park in NJ this weekend ... it's because #13 was there in a full Spider-Man costume -- and the story is pretty great! 

The NY Giants superstar caught wind that his teammate, Jonathan Casillas, was throwing a party for his 6-year-old daughter, Jade, who happens to be a big Odell Beckham fan.

We're told Odell wanted to surprise Jade -- so he got a black Spider-Man costume (with a full mask covering his face) and kicked it with the kids ... who had no idea Spidey was really a huge NFL star.

Odell eventually unmasked himself and the video is awesome. We're told Jade (and her mom) loved the surprise ... they had no idea!

As for the costume ... we debated if it was actually a Venom suit but ultimately decided it was more like the black Spidey suit from "Spider-Man 3."

Venom doesn't typically have webs on the suit.

Yeah, we're dorks. Whatever.

Check it out ... Eugene's not speaking for the rest of the nearly 600 Native American tribes, some of which will head indoors for a "time out" -- as in no talking and no eating or drinking.

George & Amal Clooney Parents' Night Out in Italy

8/21/2017 7:02 AM PDT

George and Amal Clooney took a break from baby duty Sunday night and decided to go to a restaurant that rivals their fame.

George and Amal hit up Harry's Bar at the Piazza Risorgimento in Lake Como. She looks amazing ... remember, she dropped the twins 2 months ago.

Kinda funny ... Amal got all spiffy in a glowing green dress, but George didn't follow suit, or anything even close.

Can't blame George for dressing down ... guy's gotta be losing sleep these days, or he just doesn't care 'cause he's worth half a billion.

Jerry Lewis Last Stand-Up Shows He Still Had It

EXCLUSIVE

Jerry Lewis still had his sharp wit and comedic edge 7 months before his death ... as seen here in his final on-stage performance ever.

Jerry was performing at the Southwest Florida Event Center in Bonita Springs this past January, and it just so happened to be his final stand-up gig in front of a theater audience ... for which he stayed seated, presumably due to his age.

Right out of the gate, you can see the legendary comedian hadn't missed a step with his timing, as some females from the crowd shouted a classic line of his from "The Ladies Man" ... and he dished a punchline right back.

As we reported ... Lewis died Sunday at his Las Vegas home due to natural causes, according to his family. 

Jerry ended his set with a joke that quite possibly epitomizes his iconic career. This much is clear ... even at 90, the guy loved what he did. David Letterman can attest to that.

Sonny Landham -- who played Billy the self-knifing military badass in "Predator" -- has passed away in a Kentucky hospital at the age of 76 from congestive heart failure. 

Landham was part of Arnold Schwarzenegger's band of special forces soldiers in the 1987 flick -- and starred in the famous scene where he tried to go one-on-one with the alien armed only with a knife. 

He lost ... but he went down in a frickin' blaze of glory. 

Landham also appeared in "48 Hours" -- in which he also played a guy named Billy. 

Before going mainstream, Landham starred in a bunch of low-grade porn flicks -- including "Slippery When Wet" -- but regretted it and said he needed the money at the time.

He later got into politics -- running for several offices in Kentucky, but never got elected. 

RIP.

EXCLUSIVE

John Heard -- who played the dad in "Home Alone" -- died in a California hotel room after suffering a heart attack brought on by heart disease, officials tell TMZ.

The 71-year-old was found in a hotel in Palo Alto, CA on July 21.

The Santa Clara County Medical Exmainer's Office conducted an autopsy and found Heard died of a "sudden cardiac death due to atheroscerotic and hypertensive heart disease."

Heard had undergone minor back surgery 2 days before his death at Stanford Medical Center (a short distance away) and was staying in that hotel while he recovered.

But officials say Heard's "recent back surgery did NOT play a role in his death."

As for toxicology, the results have not been made public.

Roman Polanski Third Woman Alleges Sexual Assault as Minor

8/15/2017 2:48 PM PDT

Roman Polanski "sexually victimized" a 16-year-old when she was in high school ... so says that woman in new allegations. 

The woman, who would only identify herself as Robin, was joined by attorney Gloria Allred at a news conference Tuesday ... becoming the third woman to come forward with similar allegations against the 83-year-old director.

Robin -- who also wouldn't say how she knew Polanski -- said she told a friend the next day about what happened and refused to tell her father because she was afraid he might do something that would send him to prison for the rest of his life. Allred said Robin did not go to law enforcement at the time but did so this year.

Robin said she's not over the sexual assault after all these years ... unlike Polanski's first victim, Samantha Geimer, who supports Polanski's full freedom.

Allred said they will not file a civil lawsuit against Polanski and will explore their next step. 

As we've reported ... Polanski had sex with Geimer when she was 13 in 1977 ... but she's since said what's happening to Polanski is outrageous because if she's over it ... everyone else should be, too.

Charlotte Lewis came forward in 2010 alleging Polanski forced himself on her in 1982 when she was 16. Allred repped her at the time but Polanski wasn't charged. Allred declined to answer whether she still reps Lewis.

Polanski's attorney, Harland Braun, tells TMZ ... "I don’t know what this new case is designed to do. What is it? Is Gloria (Allred) trying to influence Judge Gordon? We don’t know how credible this (alleged new victim) is. She hasn’t been vetted. No police report filed."
