Will Forte Okay, Don't Panic ... We Have More Than 10 Secs. to Write 'MacGruber 2'

9/28/2016 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Will Forte's still far away from making life-changing inventions out of household materials in "MacGruber 2" ... despite the panic on the Internet.

The buzz started Monday when Will's co-writer and director, Jorma Taccone, tweeted they were working on a "MacGruber" sequel. Jorma even shared a pic of the "Super Duper Rough" script.

Will tried to downplay the hype when we got him at LAX, saying he has at least one other priority -- but then he slipped into character ... so, yeah. GET EXCIT--  

'Empire' Star 50 Cent Needs Hugs ... And a Shrink's Couch

9/27/2016 1:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Cookie's assistant on "Empire" proved she's got her back in real life too by taking a jab at 50 Cent's mental health ... on the heels of him trash talking Taraji P. Henson.

Ta'Rhonda Jones, who plays Porsha on the show, came on "TMZ Live" to talk about the new season ... and addressed Fiddy's repeated shots at "Empire." Her take on it was pretty awesome -- she went right after the rapper/TV producer and flat out called him a "weirdo."

Taraji already went back at 50 after he claimed "Empire" ratings were slipping -- but she was kinda gentle about it. High road. Ta'Rhonda, on the other hand, lit into him and then gave him some advice.

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Breakup Leads to Fight with Sisters ... Kylie's Digits Leaked

9/27/2016 7:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0927-rob-kardashian-sisters-blac-chyna-baby-shower-TMZ-01Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are seriously on the outs, and Kylie Jenner got caught in the cross fire when she planned a baby shower for Rob sans Chyna ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the Kardashians tell us Rob got pissed at his sisters Monday -- especially Kylie -- for what he considered a slap in the face ... the Chyna-free shower they were throwing. We're told the sisters only planned separate his and hers showers because Rob and Chyna haven't been speaking for months. 

They briefly reunited for a dinner the night before their reality show premiered, but other than that ... they've been split.

Still, Rob was pissed when he learned BC wouldn't be at the shower -- so he skipped it, and dialed up some revenge by tweeting Kylie's phone number. Thing is ... we're told Chyna had agreed separate showers were best.

Rob wasn't told that until after the fact, and we're told he's still pissed. We're guessing Kylie will have to get that number changed.

Kanye West doesn't just rant on Twitter, he also makes deals ... as a guy in Toronto found out after 'Ye shocked him by making a purchase.

Raksha tells us he shot for the moon by tweeting Kanye to say he made a chain for Kim, and it could be hers for $500. He says he was surprised when Kanye's stylist responded, and said 'Ye would love it, but wanted the necklace to simply read "Pablo."

Raksha delivered a month ago, and Kanye wore the chain for his Harper's Bazaar cover shoot, and he's worn it on tour too.

Chris Brown Lawyer D.A.'s Got Zilch on My Client LAPD Says Not So Fast

9/21/2016 9:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0921-chris-brown-tmzChris Brown's attorney seems to have an idea where the singer's assault case is headed ... nowhere. But cops are saying ... the investigation's in full swing.

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, just suggested the case against Chris has fallen apart. When Chris was arrested August 30, he was due in court for an arraignment this past Tuesday. Not only did the authorities miss that deadline, we've confirmed cops haven't even presented the file to the D.A.

But law enforcement sources say ... detectives are knee-deep in the investigation, interviewing witnesses and compiling evidence. We've learned the arraignment date has been extended 15 days so detectives can complete their investigation and send the case on to prosecutors.

As we reported, Brown was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, after allegedly pointing a gun at houseguest Baylee Curran.

Meantime ... Chris is cashing in on the whole ordeal. He's selling these shirts and, in his own artistic way, tells us exactly how he feels about Curran.

Olympic Protester Tommie Smith I'm Boycotting James Woods ... Calling Kaep A 'Dirtbag' Is Wrong

9/17/2016 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0916_tommie-smith-james-woods_nfl_tmz_gettyTommie Smith ... one half of the iconic Black Power demonstration from the '68 Olympics ... says he's done watching James Woods movies ... 'cause Woods called Colin Kaepernick a "dirtbag."

Woods has been all over Kaep -- and the NFL -- telling our cameras he's boycotting the league for it's refusal to discipline the 49ers QB over his national anthem protest.

But it's Woods' name-calling of Kaepernick on Twitter -- where he called Kaep a "piece Of S@#t" and a "dirtbag" -- that has Smith steaming mad.

Of course, Smith and fellow sprinter John Carlos are the OG's of the sports protest game ... creating an iconic image at the '68 Olympics in Mexico by raising their fists in the air for Black power.

0912_1968-Olympic-Games_tommie_smith-sub-gettyTMZ Sports spoke with Smith and he told us the personal insults aimed at Colin aren't fair ... and because of them, he can no longer support Woods' movie career.

"James Woods used to be one of my favorite actors ... but if he thinks he is dirt because of what he did then I am crossing him of my list because he is wrong."

Smith went on to say he totally disagrees with Woods' view that Kaerpernick's protest is disrespectful ... and is urging the Academy Award nominee to take a hard look at the issues.

"I think James should look a bit deeper, and focus on the reason [Colin] did what he did."

James Woods Kaepernick Is a Piece Of S*** 'I'll Never Watch NFL Again'

9/16/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

James Woods says Colin Kaepernick is a "dirtbag" -- and he's so pissed at the NFL for not punishing the QB over his national anthem protest he's boycotting the league ... FOR LIFE!!

Woods unloaded about the situation to our photog -- "I will never watch the NFL again, ever."

So, why the hostility?

Woods is downright offended by Kaepernick's refusal to stand for the anthem -- and railed against him on Twitter ... calling him a "dirtbag" and a "P.O.S."

Long story short ... Woods wants the 49ers or the NFL to force Kaep out of the league because it would send the message to other players that "tarnishing the flag" won't be tolerated.

NFL's DeAngelo Williams Damn Right I Stiffed Waitress ... 'Service Was Horrible' (UPDATE)

Exclusive Details

0912-deangelo-williams-GETTY-01

update_graphic_red_bar7:52 AM PT -- More bad news for the server ... 

TMZ Sports spoke with Jimmy Marcos -- co-owner of Ledo Restaurant in Maryland -- who tells us DeAngelo's server will be TERMINATED over her handling of the tip situation. 

Long story short ... we're told the restaurant policy is "the customer is always right" and tipping is a reflection of the service -- not mandatory. 

"We were in the wrong," Marcos says.

He also has a message for Williams -- "I want to offer anything I can do. I'll be sure to apologize in person next time he visits and pick up his next meal."update-grey-gray-barPittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams is blasting restaurant workers who called him out on social media for not tipping ... saying point-blank -- THEY SUCKED AT THEIR JOBS. 

It all started when the bartender at the restaurant went to Facebook and wrote:

"Just now at work I had Deangelo Williams come in and I waited on while tending bar. His check was $128.25. He left me $129 with no tip but .75 cents. So there you go Stealers fans, your running back is cheap as s**t!!! Smh."

Williams found out about the social media shaming and lashed back -- claiming the service was so terrible, a 75 cent tip was TOO GENEROUS. 

"I tried to leave exact change but couldn't," Williams said ... "I waited on my food for over 1.5 hours."

(For the record, the waitress claims he was only there for 45 mins). 

So, what was allegedly so bad?

For starters, "She never asked for refills," Williams says.

But what really pissed him off -- "I ordered chicken and shrimp in my pasta they put it on my salad."

When he pointed out the mistake, "They took it back and removed it from salad and put It in my pasta leaving a shrimp tail in the salad."

Williams says "terrible service" means terrible tip. 

"I use to wait tables and use to be a bag boy so I know what I'm doing here."
