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.

'Star Trek Beyond'

Enterprise Down!!

Set Pics Tease Secret Plot

10/1/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930_star_trek_spoilers_launch2Hold on to your tricorders, space geeks -- TMZ has exclusive pics from the set of "Star Trek Beyond," ... and it appears a torn up Enterprise  could be a major plot line.

Set sources tell us the next installment is shooting alien planet scenes in the Pitt River Quarries outside Vancouver.  We're also told a special effects stage was setup for interior shots of Kirk's baby -- the USS Enterprise -- which sustains serious damage in a battle. 

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Simon Pegg have been tight-lipped on the movie, but if you're itching for a glimpse of what's to come ... click away.

And as always, live long and prosper.

James Caan checked into a Toronto hospital after suffering from a chest infection.

We're told the 75-year-old actor, who's in town filming "Operation Insanity" with Paul Sorvino, was admitted Tuesday night. Caan has since been released after being diagnosed with a mild chest infection.

A rep for James tells TMZ he will be back to work in just a few days and is doing fine.

Some Guys Have All the Luck

9/30/2015 6:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-scott-eastwood-splashScott Eastwood hit the clubs Tuesday night, and no surprise, hot chicks were like glue.

Scott was at 1 OAK nightclub in West Hollywood, wearing a "Suicide Squad" t-shirt. He's one of the stars, along with Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith.

Scott was dealt a good hand.

NY Giants Co-Owner

I'm Rooting for 'Concussion'

'I Hope It Educates, Empowers'

9/29/2015 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NY Giants co-owner Steve Tisch says he's still cool with Will Smith -- and is actually rooting for his new movie "Concussion" to do well ... despite the fact it's about a doctor who takes on the NFL. 

The movie has been getting a TON of buzz -- with the trailer suggesting the NFL hatched a diabolical plot to intimidate a doctor into hiding evidence about the real dangers of football related brain trauma. 

Tisch says he hasn't seen the movie yet, but says he's not even mad about it at all -- "I hope the movie not only entertains, but educates and empowers."

Tisch also says the NFL isn't trying to hide anything -- in fact, he's adamant the league is very proactive when it comes to head injuries.

"There's a very high level of consciousness about concussions in the NFL," says Tisch ... who claims the league is doing everything in its power to educate the players. 

"I like Will Smith. I like the NFL ... I hope everybody's happy at the end of the day." 

De'Aundre Bonds

I Didn't Get Jumped ...

'I Fall a Little, That's Life!'

9/29/2015 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Dope" co-star De'Aundre Bonds says he wasn't attacked in downtown L.A., and the gaping wound in his head was merely the result of taking a header ... all on his own.

As we reported ... Bonds was hospitalized last week when a friend found him unconscious. According to our sources, Bonds believed he'd been jumped by several attackers in DTLA, leaving him with a couple of nasty head injuries that required 10 stitches.

But when we got De'Aundre in Culver City on Monday ... he denied any attack. Listen to his version of events -- he's blaming diabetes and low blood sugar for the fall, and hints this kinda thing happens all the time.

As Bonds, who famously starred in "The Wood," puts it ... "I fall a little."


Shawne Merriman

'I Turned Down Will Smith Concussion Movie'

Here's Why ...

9/28/2015 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-NFL superstar Shawne Merriman tells TMZ Sports ... he was approached to be a part of Will Smith's "Concussion" movie but SHOT IT DOWN. 

The former San Diego Chargers linebacker says he's convinced the movie is "definitely going to give the NFL a black eye" ... but says he didn't feel right jumping aboard the project. 

The movie -- set to come out in December -- is supposed to blow the lid of an alleged NFL conspiracy to hide the debilitating life-long effects of concussions from players. 

"I turned it down and said 'No' ... I don't want to be a part of it because I didn't know how they were going to make it look."

Still, Merriman says concussions are a problem among NFL vets -- saying, "A lot of people have problems and the NFL should fix it .. period."

Hugh Jackman

Dogs Sit While Actor Sits Up

9/27/2015 7:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0927-hugh-jackman-dog-park-workout-PCN-01Hugh Jackman was dogged by both his trainer and his pooches during a workout Saturday in NYC.

Hugh was doing sit ups with the trainer as his dogs, Allegra and Dali cruised the park.  It seems it's a thing -- the Dog Pound fitness group.

Multitasking ... it's what makes Australians in America great.


Zac Efron

With Neighbors Like This ...

You'd Never Leave Home

9/25/2015 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-zac-efron-house-party-neighbros-2-FAMEFLYNET-01Behold Zac Efron's body ... at work.

Shirtless Efron is holding court on the set of "Neighbors 2" in Atlanta, and based on this pic ... we're guessing the majority of his scenes will require minimal wardrobe -- at least if someone wants to keep a job.

Zac's abs just made it official ... 6-packs are out!
