Rebel Wilson

I Might Hookup With Drake

In 'Pitch Perfect 2'

2/16/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

021614_rebel_wilson_launchSorry, Adam Devine ... but you probably won't get to bang Rebel Wilson in "Pitch Perfect 2" -- the actress says her love interest in the sequel may actually be Drake.

Rebel dropped the casting spoiler while leaving a West Hollywood salon after our photog asked about Drake's Rolling Stone drama this week.

The 28-year-old actress was tight lipped on more "P.P." details ... but did say what she would have done with the popular magazine in Drake's shoes.

Not the best way to start off a relationship.

Quit Your Bitching, Drake ...

We Warned You About Cover Change

Drake
has no business attacking Rolling Stone or Philip Seymour Hoffman because the magazine gave him advance notice it was dropping him from the cover in favor of PSH.

Sources close to Drake tell TMZ the rapper feels like he was "tricked" because ... "He only did the interview if he was going to be on the cover."

But we've learned Drake was interviewed on January 28, and the photo shoot was also completed before PSH died on Feb. 2.

A rep for RS says this happens all the time when musicians and actors die -- most recently when Lou Reed and Whitney Houston passed away.

Further, sources tell us Drake's camp was told last Friday he wouldn't be on the cover when the mag was released Wednesday. The RS rep would not say if they offered Drake a future cover.

For what it's worth ... Drake has deleted his tweets about the RS cover and Hoffman.

Pisses on Philip Seymour Hoffman

He Stole My Cover!!

Drake just spit on Philip Seymour Hoffman's grave ... throwing a bitch fit over losing the Rolling Stone cover to the dead actor.

Drake's hissy sesh started with a complaint about being misquoted in the latest issue regarding Kanye West's album -- but then he quickly lashes out at the mag for making a switch.

Drizzy tweeted ... "They also took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue."

Minutes later, Drake went back to Twitter and said, "RIP to Philip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."

It's a half-hearted apology, at best. So, we gotta ask ... 

'Half Baked' Actress

Rolling Stone Screwed Us

'Half Baked' is Top 5 Stoner Movie Ever!!!

Actress Rachel True says Rolling Stone must've smoked themselves stupid ... 'cause they somehow left her movie "Half Baked" off their list of Top 10 Stoner Movies of all time!

Rachel -- who played Mary Jane Potman in the cult classic -- was doing some sightseeing around the Grove in LA ... and we asked where she thinks "Half Baked" ranks among the dankest weed movies.

Ms. Potman says she thinks the movie should at least be in the top 5 ... and was SHOCKED "Half Baked" didn't even make their top 10. 

Here's the list according to RS:

1. 'The Big Lebowski'
2. 'Dazed and Confused'
3. 'Pineapple Express'
4. 'Cheech & Chong's Next Movie'
5. 'How High'

So ... did Rolling Stone get it right ... or are they smoking entirely too much reefer?

Lizzy Caplan says she's NOT the one holding up a possible "Party Down" comeback ... telling TMZ she's ready, willing and able to bring back the catering show ... as soon as someone calls her.

Caplan -- who played Casey Klein on the Starz show -- was at Fig and Olive in L.A. Thursday night when we asked why there's a holdup ... considering the show has developed a pretty impressive cult following ever since it went off the air in 2010.

Despite the fact she's moved on to another big show, "Masters of Sex," Caplan says she's down to find time to get the old 'PD' gang back together -- "I would love to do it."

Ken Marino -- who directed and starred in the series -- has also talked about bringing the show back as a movie, recently telling Rolling Stone, "It was a magical experience. Everybody in front of the camera and behind the camera wants to do it, so hopefully it'll get done."

Vanilla Ice fully admits he used to be king of the douches, but says he knows the secret to saving Justin Bieber from the same fate.

Ice -- aka Rob Van Winkle -- came on TMZ Live to talk about Miley Cyrus saying she warned Justin about being so douchey he'd become a joke, a la Vanilla Ice.

Rob doesn't disagree with her, and even shared the formula he used to turn his life around.

Listen up, Justin ... Prof. Ice is talking.

'Bomber' Cover

Banned at 7-Eleven

EXCLUSIVE

Rolling Stone's cover story about the Boston Marathon bomber just got the magazine yanked out of nearly 2,000 7-Eleven stores, and more could follow ... TMZ has learned.

The omnipresent convenient store is joining the national outrage over the mag's upcoming issue with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover, and an investigation into his life leading up to the bombing.

A rep for 7-Eleven, Inc. tells TMZ it "will not sell the Aug. 1 issue of the Rolling Stone magazine in its company-operated stores."

There are 1,700 company operated stores -- and another 5,900 franchised stores. The rep says they'll also urge those franchise owners to pull the issue.

Yesterday, CVS, Walgreens, and Stop & Shop all said they will not sell the issue either.

Boycotting Our Cover is a

Boycot of the Constitution

EXCLUSIVE

0717_rollingstone_bomberBostonians upset by the new Rolling Stone cover -- featuring Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev -- need to grow up and learn from the tragedy that rocked their city ... according to the magazine's editors.

The editors just released a statement, saying their hearts go out to the Boston bombing victims -- but "the cover story we are publishing this week falls within the traditions of journalism and Rolling Stone's longstanding commitment to serious and thoughtful coverage."

The statement continues, "The fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is young, and in the same age group as many of our readers, makes it all the more important for us to examine the complexities of this issue and gain a more complete understanding of how a tragedy like this happens."

In other words, we're exercising our 1st Amendment rights to investigate a terrorist -- so, stop burying your heads in the sand, people.

As we reported, CVS and the Boston-based Roche Bros. supermarkets have boycotted the latest issue of the magazine because of its controversial cover ... saying it's disrespectful to the victims.

The Boston supermarket chain Roche Bros. is also boycotting the magazine -- a rep tells TMZ, "When Roche Bros. learned of the cover for the current issue of Rolling Stone, we chose not to offer that product for sale in our stores. We join with our customers and neighbors in focusing on the recovery of the victims and our community."

Walgreens and Stop & Shop have also boycotted the magazine.

gray-bar-update
CVS
apparently believes the First Amendment has limits ... because the pharmacy chain just announced it won't hawk the latest issue of Rolling Stone, featuring Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on the cover.

A rep for CVS says "As a company with deep roots in New England and a strong presence in Boston, we believe this is the right decision out of respect for the victims of the attack and their loved ones."

It's kind of a bizarre reaction, since the story is about how Tsarnaev "fell into radical Islam and became a monster."

So we gotta ask ...
