'Lethal Weapon' Cop Crashes Set ... Gets Her Depp Bubble Burst

1/21/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-lethal-weapon-fox-01"Lethal Weapon" star Clayne Crawford was shooting a scene when an LAPD officer busted it up ... purely by accident, but that's not the most embarrassing part for the cop.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... one of their own made the blunder last week while the FOX show was filming near city hall. We're told the director had to cut the action until the cop got out of the way.

To make matters worse, she told everyone afterward her Hollywood faux pas was totally worth it because at least Johnny Depp waved and smiled at her.

Her joy turned to disappointment when she was later told Johnny was nowhere near the set. Turns out her "Depp" was really Crawford ... who does bear a striking resemblance to Donnie Brasco.

Better luck next time, officer.

'Flip or Flop' Dominates NBA as King of Ratings

1/20/2017 4:07 PM PST

0120-flip-or-flop-happy-HGTV-01We don't do ratings stories but this is interesting ... "Flip or Flop" -- despite the off-screen drama from its hosts -- annihilated Thursday's cable TV lineup to win the ratings game.

The show snagged more than 2 million viewers. #2 was an NBA game that scored 1.4 million viewers. The other NBA game was #3 at 1.2 mil.

It's definitely good news for Tarek and Christina El Moussa. Lots of people thought their TV gooses were cooked now that they're getting unhitched.  

We're told the network's mulling over whether to bring back the show for another season but clearly conflict and angst are good for business.

1/19/2017 1:59 PM PST

Marshawn Lynch went BEAST MODE on a monster truck -- ghostriding the massive vehicle and then using it to CRUSH a Jeep.

The ex-NFL star got all smashy-smashy with the guys from Discovery Channel's "Diesel Brothers" ... and he LOVED IT.

They even busted out some donuts ... with the crushed Jeep still under the truck.

Gotta hand it to Marshawn (unlike Pete Carroll) ... he's really enjoying retirement.

0119_miguel_ferrer_launchMiguel Ferrer, who co-starred in dozens of huge TV shows, died Thursday of cancer.

Miguel was best known for co-starring on "Crossing Jordan" for six years with Jill Hennessy and playing FBI agent Albert Rosenfield on "Twin Peaks."

More recently he's starred in "NCIS: Los Angeles" ... but Miguel's been THAT guy -- the character actor you always recognize -- since the '80s when he had roles on "Magnum, P.I.," "Cagney & Lacey" and "Miami Vice."

Miguel's cousin, George Clooney said ... "Miguel made the world brighter and funnier and his passing is felt so deeply in our family that events of the day, (monumental events), pale in comparison. We love you Miguel. We always will."

Deadline first reported his death.

Miguel was 61.

EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's excitement about promoting "A Dog's Purpose" was crushed when she saw the disturbing video of a terrified German Shepherd on the movie's set.

We caught Lisa in Bev Hills, hours after TMZ first posted the footage of Hercules ... one of the dogs starring in the upcoming movie. She was clearly heartsick over what she saw -- particularly because of her commercial for the flick, and her extensive work with the Vanderpump Dog Foundation.

Sources close to the network tell TMZ ... Bravo honchos are mulling over whether to pull the ad Lisa shot, but regardless of what they do -- she's made a decision about the payday she got for doing it.

The Rock Lets a Finger Slip ... 'Saluting' Kevin Hart

1/18/2017 6:46 PM PST

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson got busted giving Kevin Hart the bird on live TV, but to be fair ... Kevin kind of had it coming.

Hart had just finished thanking all of his co-stars for winning favorite comedy performance in "Central Intelligence" on the People's Choice Awards ... but gave the reverse of a shout-out to The Rock. 

The Rock laughed it off, but then decided to pay Kevin back right before the camera cut away ... a split second too late.

The Rock won an award for Favorite Premium Series Actor a few minutes later for his role on "Ballers."

Blake Griffin To Appear In 'White Men Can't Jump' Reboot ... Producer Hints

1/18/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Blake Griffin isn't just producing the "White Men Can't Jump" reboot, there's also a "high" chance he'll appear in it ... so says the guy writing the flick, Kenya Barris.

Kenya is a BIG DEAL in Hollywood -- he didn't just create "Black-ish" but also co-created "America's Next Top Model."

Kenya tells TMZ Sports he's got a great working relationship with Blake -- who's been dabbling in Hollywood when he's not killing it on the court. In fact, he credits Griffin for getting the project off the ground in the first place.

Kenya says he'd love to have the ORIGINAL guys -- Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson -- appear in the flick, but wants to make sure the movie feels different from the 1992 classic.

And the biggest difference? Kenya says white guys CAN jump now ... and are crushing dunk contests ... and that'll be a factor in the movie.

Breaking News

Lamar Odom says he's grateful to Khloe Kardashian for staying by his side through his drug addiction and recovery ... and he wants her back.

Odom opened up about his battle with drugs on "The Doctors" -- and after completing a 30 day stint in rehab, he says one thing is perfectly clear ... "I want my wife back."

"Khloe is important to me," Lamar said ... "She's been through all of this with me and she stood right by my side so I just wanna repay her."

The issue, of course, is that Khloe not only filed for divorce ... and got it finalized ... she's already moved on to another NBA star, Tristan Thompson.

Still, Odom says he has a message for Khloe and the other family members he cares about.

"I just want to tell them I'm sorry for all that wasted time and wasted energy ... that in my addiction I didn't know who I was ... so I couldn't take care of myself. I damn sure couldn't take care of anybody else."

1/17/2017 9:12 AM PST

0117-steve-harvey-tmzSteve Harvey caved and apologized after joking that Asian men are not attractive.

The "Family Feud" host mocked Asian men on the 'Steve Harvey' show last week during a segment in which he poked fun at some self-help books ... including one titled "How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men."

The comedian tweeted an apology Tuesday, saying, "I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week. It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever."

It's interesting -- Steve said on Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" ... comics cave when sponsors are on the line.

EXCLUSIVE

Paris Jackson is a grown woman, and pretty damn impressive!

We got Michael Jackson's daughter leaving LAX Monday, where she obliquely talked about her move to conquer modeling and Hollywood.

It's pretty remarkable for someone who was once shrouded in masks, hats and anything else that could hide her from public view.

As for whether Michael would be proud ... she's banking on it.
