Austin Rivers Pumped About 'Ninja Turtles' Cameo ... Gunning For 'Space Jam 2'

5/21/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

When in L.A. ... you get in the movies -- just like Clippers star Austin Rivers, who locked up a pretty sweet cameo in the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' movie! 

We spoke with Austin -- who's still recovering from that gnarly eye injury he suffered earlier in the NBA playoff -- and he told us he was super stoked to get a role in a scene shot at Madison Square Garden.

So, what's next ... "SPACE JAM 2" -- that is, if producers hit him up for a role. 

C'mon LeBron, you can pull some strings, right?

EXCLUSIVE

Michelle Rodriguez did not mince words about the disparity between men and women when paycheck Friday comes along ... it's just a man's world.

Michelle was leaving LAX Thursday when our photog asked her about Seth Rogen's rant over the wage gap. Michelle was quick to say she gets paid way less than her male movie counterparts, and then equated being born a woman to being born a slave.

She's awesome as always, and super interesting.

The guy who played Jason Voorhees four times in the "Friday the 13th" movies just announced he's not doing any more horror flicks -- but check your calendar. There's gotta be a twist.

Kane Hodder -- who's acted in slasher films since the early '80s -- posted this video, explaining why he's no longer comfortable with movie violence. His message is almost moving. Almost.

With a backdrop of goblins, skeletons and mangled body parts ... you might've guessed 'Jason' had something up his sleeve. Check out the video -- all this needs is a hockey mask.

0513_amal_clooney_dress_cannes_launch_v2Amal Clooney's dress made her a dead ringer for Belle at the Cannes Film Festival ... until the long flowing train on her dress decided to go rogue.

Amal was dressed to kill Thursday for her husband George Clooney's "Money Monster" premiere. Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster and Dominic West were there too, but Amal's dress brought the procession to a halt. It's cool ... she had George to rescue her.

Tale as old as time.

Vin Diesel Screwed Me After We Broke Up ... Ex-Producer Sues

5/10/2016 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0510_vin_diesel_tmz-3Vin Diesel is giving his former business partner a triple X screw job ... according to a lawsuit the guy just filed against Diesel.

In the docs, George Zakk says he ran Vin's production company, One Race Films, since 1995 -- and their deal called for him to get a piece of the pie every time Vin made a movie.

Zakk says he was supposed to get $250k to $275k and a credit of at least producer on each film. He says everything was cool on movies like "xXx," "Chronicles of Riddick" and "The Pacifier."

But Zakk says he's getting the shaft on the "xXx" sequel set to come out next year.

In the suit, he says although he stopped running One Race Films in 2007 ... he believes his deal lives on -- so he deserves his fee and credit for the sequel.

He's suing Diesel for breach of contract to ensure he gets his dough. We've reached out to Diesel's camp ... no response yet.

Good news for LeBron James ... he's got Magic Johnson's vote of confidence when it comes to taking over the 'Space Jam' franchise -- with Magic saying he thinks he can be BETTER than MJ

Johnson was leaving a fancy brunch at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills (where he took his own mother out in a ridiculousy awesome ride) when we asked him about Bron's new movie gig. 

Magic says LBJ's got big shoes to fill, but he's confident James can hang with the original. 

Not a bad endorsement ... 

Keanu Reeves Cops Investigate 'Matrix' Obsessed Fan

5/9/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0505-keanu-reeves-matrix-wb-ec-01Keanu Reeves is once again being courted to join the resistance and save humanity ... only this time it's not Morpheus ... it's an obsessed fan who thinks "The Matrix" is real life.

According to legal docs ... the LAPD is looking for a guy who showed up at the actor's home last October and placed a FedEx envelope in his mailbox, offering up a cell phone number with this instruction: "I will call the cell provided tomorrow. We need to meet as I have already started building the new world. #masterbuilder."

Cops believe the guy has an obsession with Keanu's character, Neo, from "The Matrix" movies ... the cell phone reference is actually a nod to the first movie.

Keanu told cops he's afraid for his safety because the guy knows where he lives ... and he thinks the guy suffers from some type of mental disorder.

The LAPD is on the case. 

J.R. Smith Tapped for 'Space Jam 2' Role ... Let's Get Animated!

5/8/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506_jr-smith-space-jam_gettyLeBron James might have familiar company on the set of "Space Jam 2" ... 'cause TMZ Sports has learned producers have already reached out to Cavs star J.R. Smith for a role in the flick. 

We spoke to Smith's rep Daniel Hazan ... who says producers contacted him a few weeks ago to see if Smith would be down for a part -- and J.R.'s ears perked up. 

"There is mutual interest," Hazan says. 

As for the role -- nothing's set in stone, but producers have kicked around the idea of Smith possibly voicing an animated character ... a la "the Monstars" from the original.  

It makes sense for producers to go after Bron's teammates -- when Michael Jordan starred in the original "Space Jam," several Bulls teammates like Scottie Pippen and Luc Longley got to come along for the ride.

Hazan says he's hopeful the two sides will be able to work something out soon -- saying at the end of the day, "It all depends on the deal."

Sorry 'Lion King' ... too bad "Aladdin... suck it up "Toy Story" ... boxing star Adrien Broner says none of you are his favorite Disney movie ... opting for a tale closer to his heart, wrists and fingers.

Broner was out in NYC copping some new bling at Avianne & Co when our camera guy decided to ask a question central to understanding the way a real man thinks.

What's your favorite Disney movie?

Check out the clip ... Broner tells our guy he likes the tale featuring Anna and Elsa ... which is of course "Frozen" ... saying the movie reminds him of his general state of being.

We say "The Little Mermaid" ... but that's just for the songs.

'Crash' Director Paul Haggis Divorce Has Me Writing More Checks Than Movies

5/5/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

504-tear-paul-haggis-tmz-gettyOscar winner Paul Haggis finalized his divorce, but his now ex-wife will continue reaping the benefits of his success.  

The "Crash" director reached his divorce settlement with Deborah ... and according to the docs, he'll pay her $20k a month in spousal support. The exes have a 17-year-old son, and Paul will pay another $5k per month for child support, and foot the bill for the kid's schooling -- high school and college.

Additionally, the settlement calls for Deborah to get a hefty slice of Haggis' income -- 20% of anything he makes over $1.2 million per year. That's on top of the monthly $20k check.

Paul's walking away with one of their 2 NYC SoHo apartments and 3 Florida properties.
