Brad Keselowski

'Sharknado 3' Going to His Head

... Oh Hell No!!

7/22/2015 4:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brad Keselowski's played the role of NASCAR champion, and even NASCAR villain -- but his greatest role yet will be ... shark food.

Yes, the former Sprint Cup champ's got a meaty role in tonight's premiere of "Sharknado 3" ... and he's very proud of the work he put into what he calls, "a story that had to be told."

BK gave his fans a behind the scenes look with this video -- and even got co-star Ian Ziering and famed Thespian David Spade to co-sign on his performance. It's pretty hysterical.

And watch for the scene stealer in this clip ... Brad's teammate Joey Logano.

After you watch the movie tonight ... grade Brad's performance in the comment section. Y'know you're gonna watch.

New Lakers

Kobe Who??

7/22/2015 1:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Three new Lakers were silenced by Kobe Bryant ... or at least a question about Kobe -- and the video is super awkward.

The Lakers held a news conference to introduce Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams, and Brandon Bass to the media -- and, naturally, one of the first questions was Mamba-related: "Any of you guys heard from Kobe, and if so, what did he say?"

Y'know when they say silence is deafening? This clip is full-on Helen Keller.

Apparently, these guys have learned the first rule of the Kobe Club.

0721-taraji-house-Gallery-Launch-Template-03Taraji P. Henson is on one of the biggest shows on TV, so it's super exciting that a lucky fan can sleep in her bed ... if the price is right. 

The "Empire" star is renting out her Glendale home for $3,700 a month. The house is modest ... 1,400 square feet, 2 small bedrooms, the obligatory pool but nothing fancy. Real Estalker throws some shade on the house, saying it's "sorrowfully beige" with "misaligned tile work." 

She bought the house in 2002 for $431,000 and hasn't lived there since 2010. Taraji lived there until hitting it big on "Person of Interest."  

As for her new, more luxurious digs, she has said, "Listen, we're like the Jeffersons. Now a big L.A. house. To us, it's a mansion."
