'This Is Us' Star Justin Hartley Jack's Death is 'Heartbreaking and Devastating'

2/23/2017 6:51 AM PST

Justin Hartley has warned us ... his TV father's death will be "heartbreaking and devastating" to watch.

We got the "This is Us" star in NYC Wednesday and he confessed ... he cried when he watched this week's episode in which his brother's biological father dies.

Justin says the show is so emotional there's often waterworks on the set. But then he drops the bomb about Jack Pearson's demise.

'This Is Us' Star I'm Dead, But Don't Write Me Off!

EXCLUSIVE

The "This Is Us" episode that pissed off so many fans is not necessarily the end for the guy who played -- or plays -- Randall's biological dad, William.

Ron Cephas Jones gave us his take on why fans got so emotional about Tuesday night's episode, where ... SPOILER ALERT ... William dies. Viewers have said it was just too gut-wrenching, even though it was telegraphed for weeks that Ron's terminally ill character was nearing the end.

But check out why Ron's not that depressed about William's passing. The way he sees it, there's nothing fatal about death on the hit show.

Darius McCrary Accused of Abusing Baby, Attacking Wife

2/22/2017 1:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0222-tammy-brawner-darius-mccrary-tmz-02"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary is terrorizing his wife and infant -- allegedly holding the little girl over boiling water once ... this according to the wife who just got a restraining order against him.

Tammy Brawner says McCrary went nuts on Feb. 10 ... hurling picture frames and other objects around the house, and hitting her in the head with his forearm. She says the objects he threw came dangerously close to their 16-month-old daughter, Zoey.

Where Zoey's concerned ... Tammy says McCrary has abused her on several instances, including one particularly horrifying time when he held the baby over a boiling pot of water and said he wished he never had her. In docs obtained by TMZ, she also accuses him of frequent spankings and strapping down Zoey's arms during meals.

Tammy, a former Harlem Globetrotter, says the actor regularly drinks, does drugs and comes home wasted and violent.

A judge has ordered Darius to move out of their home, and he must stay 100 yards away from Tammy and Zoey. He's also barred from visitation until after a court hearing next month. Tammy says she plans to file for divorce.

McCrary's rep hasn't gotten back to us yet.

2/22/2017 10:05 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

If we told you Kevin Durant got straight balled up by "Chappelle's Show" star Donnell Rawlings there's no way you'd believe us right? We didn't think so ...

Turns out it TOTALLY happened ... and Donnell not only told the tale to TMZ Sports when we got him out at the Hollywood Improv Tuesday night -- he also provided VIDEO EVIDENCE!

It went down at a charity game in DC a few years back when Rawlings stole the ball from KD, then pushed the rock hard up the court to drain a smooth three.

Almost as dope as the moment itself? Donnell says he ran into Durant during All-Star Weekend in New Orleans and brought it up to him, and KD totally remembered.

Check it out below ... sorry we ever doubted you, Donnell.

'Dear White People' Star New Show is NOT Anti-White

2/22/2017 9:09 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tessa Thompson's got a message for anyone cancelling their Netflix membership over a new series that eyes racial tension through various lenses -- stop being silly.

Tessa -- who starred in the "Dear White People" movie -- was out at LAX Tuesday when she defended the upcoming show based on the popular indie film. Tessa's adamant people 86ing their membership is EXACTLY why the new series -- a satirical take on race -- is needed more than ever. 

Check it out ... Tessa makes a compelling case.

Alonzo Bodden, Ron White We Wouldn't Touch Correspondents' Dinner With a 10-Foot Pole

2/22/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Alonzo Bodden would NOT emcee the White House Correspondents' Dinner because he thinks it's a comedian's death sentence.

The 3rd season winner of "Last Comic Standing" admits the exposure would be great, but he would lose his African-American and Hispanic audience.

It's interesting ... he thinks the administration just can't take a joke, and that would suck the funny out of the room.

Ron White also says he'd pass on emceeing the dinner, but for a different reason ... he thinks roasting Trump is just sophomoric comedy for 3rd graders. He also has Aretha issues ... as in R-E-S-P-E-C-T for the office of president.

Milo Ventimiglia dies on his show, "This Is Us," although we don't know how ... we also don't know how he broke his arm.

We got the Pearsons' flashback father Tuesday night in NYC, where he was swarmed by fans wanting his John Hancock, but that presented a special problem, because of some busted bones.

Milo's mum on the subject, but he made one thing clear ... he loves those who clearly love him.

2/21/2017 4:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh McDermitt can neither confirm nor deny whether he'll be in season 2 of "Stranger Things" ... but does have a funny way of explaining his run-in with the kid stars.

We got the 'Walking Dead' actor Tuesday at LAX, where our camera guy grilled McDermitt about a pic he posted Monday with 3 of the boys from the Netflix show ... with hashtags like #CrossoverEpisode fueling rumors he'll star in the upcoming season.

Like Josh says ... he can't talk about that. But he's happy to deadpan his way through their meetup in Portland.

Keshia Knight Pulliam's Ex Judge, I Am the Father! But Don't Make Me Pay Yet

2/21/2017 11:11 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-keisha-knight-pulliam-ed-hartwell-tmz-getty-02Keshia Knight Pulliam's ex has finally copped to being her baby daddy ... but he doesn't want to start paying for their kid just yet.

Ed Hartwell filed new docs in his pending divorce from the former TV star, and admits he's their newborn daughter's dad ... as results from his long-awaited paternity test proved.

Here's the thing though ... Ed says he shouldn't have to start shelling out dough yet -- at least not until a court decides exactly how much he should pay in child support.

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Ed says he's not buying Keshia's claim she needs emergency financial support, because they both have deep pockets. Plus, he says she's not considering his own expenses in setting up a nursery for the kid at his place.

Ronda Rousey RETURNS TO ACTING ... Guest Role On 'Blindspot'

2/21/2017 11:18 AM PST
Breaking News

0221-ronda-rousey-blind-spot-TMZ-01Ronda Rousey's back ... to acting! 

The UFC legend scored herself a guest role on the hit NBC show "Blindspot" -- where she'll play a tough prison inmate who's serving time for transporting weapons across state lines. 

A rep for the show tells TMZ Sports the episode is scheduled to air in early May.

We're told her episode has NOT been shot yet but will be done in the near future. So, no, this didn't clash with her training for the Amanda Nunes fight. 

Ronda has not made an official decision on whether she'll fight again -- but most people think she's likely done after losing her last 2 fights.

This is a big deal for Ronda -- if she crushes the "Blindspot" gig, it could lead to bigger and better things outside the Octagon.

Alex Trebek Drops Bars on 'Jeopardy!' I'll Take 'Let's Rap' For $200

2/21/2017 8:51 AM PST

It's debatable, but Alex Trebek might've just announced the best "Jeopardy!" category of his career ... at the expense of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

The category was "Let's Rap, Kids" and Trebek had to repeat lyrics from the rappers' hits. It's hilarious ... especially when he had to drop Desiigner's banger, "Panda."

Alex even gets in a Kanye jab too. New rap beef brewing? Trebek's diss track would kill.

TV Actors Sinkhole Victims We Fought for Our Lives

EXCLUSIVE

Two actors drove smack into the L.A. sinkhole that made national news Friday, and they escaped from their car that got swallowed up in the raging storm.

"30 Rock" star Bobb'e J. Thompson and "Lincoln Heights" star Zachary Williams were in 1 of the 2 vehicles swallowed up by a 20-foot sinkhole that ended up closing Laurel Canyon, which connects Hollywood with the San Fernando Valley.

Zachary -- who was behind the wheel of his mom's Honda Odyssey -- says the earth literally moved under their feet, as the back tire hit the growing hole in the road ... disabling it. They scrambled to safety as they watched the Honda disappear into hole filled with rainwater.

They jumped into Good Samaritan mode as they saw a woman in another car who was trapped as it plunged into the sinkhole. They summoned cops, who then were able to save her.
