Daniel Craig

Will Be Bond for Life!!

If Christoph Gets His Way

10/8/2015 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Daniel Craig can make all the suicide threats he wants, but as long as he's drawing breath ... he will be playing 007 -- at least according to his "Spectre" co-star Christoph Waltz

Craig recently said he'd slash his wrists before he plays James Bond again -- which, of course, has fueled talk of a possible black Bond in the future. But no offense to the likes of Idris Elba ... "Spectre" baddie Christoph thinks Craig is just blowing smoke.  

As he left No Name Bar in Hollywood Wednesday night -- C-dub was pretty definitive about who the next Bond will be. Gotta figure the guy has SOME kinda inside info. No?

10/8/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Ben Carson was NOT that far off with his advice on taking down mass shooters ... this according to celebrity security experts who are suddenly flooded with calls to train famous children for that very scenario.

Logan Clarke and Allen Cardoza run an executive level protection firm in Hollywood, and tell us they've had requests from 5 celeb parents and 2 schools (private and public) -- all looking for training for high school and college students.

While they can't reveal their clients' names, they did tell us what they generally recommend: When dealing with a crazed guman you only have 2 choices ... fight or die.

Yes, that sounds a lot like Carson's advice, for which he's caught tons of heat. Clarke and Cardoza have some tips for the good doc too.

10/8/2015 6:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pam Anderson made it short and sweet ... good luck to producers of the " Baywatch" movie finding someone as hot as her.

Pam was leaving Craig's restaurant in WeHo Wednesday night when our photog asked about the new flick starring Zac Efron and The Rock. She was very clear on the role of C.J.

'Mexican Madonna' Gloria Trevi

I'd Give Trump a Second Chance

But Only If ...

10/7/2015 3:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Trevi's life story is so absolutely insane it became a movie, which she says brought her to tears -- but the "Mexican Madonna" cracked up when we suggested she perform for Donald Trump

Trevi survived one of the biggest scandals in the history of music -- after shooting to superstardom in the '90s, she and her bf/manager were accused of running a sex cult for minors. The couple fled to Brazil, and Trevi was eventually arrested there and imprisoned for nearly 5 years while awaiting trial.

Oh, and she managed to get pregnant while behind bars. When it was all said and done ... she was acquitted due to lack of evidence.

Soooo ... now that her biopic "Gloria" is out, and she's reviving her career -- we wondered if she'd consider playing Trump's inauguration.

Check out her answer ... she's NOT saying never.

I Don't Want Them to Feel Trapped

... Says Guardian TJ Jackson

10/7/2015 2:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson went to such extremes to hide his children from the public, it seems shocking they're doing a reality TV series -- but Prince, Paris and Blanket are only doing what they want to do ... according to their cousins.

TJ Jackson and his brothers Taryll and Taj joined us on TMZ Live to talk about "The Jacksons: Next Generation." TJ has a unique perspective on how Michael's kids are raised ... since he was named their legal co-guardian a few years ago.

Tito's sons revealed why their younger cousins were starting to feel trapped by their secluded lifestyle -- and it sounds like the Lifetime docuseries is giving them a chance to turn that around.

Vladimir Putin has some skills on skates ... the Russian prez scored SEVEN times during a hockey game on his 63rd birthday.

Putin suited up with a ton of Russian officials and ex-NHLers Wednesday and hit the ice. Putin's team had plenty of help, with NHL all stars Pavel Bure and Viacheslav Fetisov. They got the W with a final score of 15-10.

While there's no telling just how hard Putin's opponents were trying ... seven goals is pretty impressive, especially for a 63-year-old.

Complained To Everyone But Us

Exclusive Details

1007-disney-gay-days-FACEBOOK-01Disneyland might have pissed off a guest who was forced to change his outfit during the annual "Gay Days" weekend but our DLand sources say the guy never brought it up with them.

Anthony Gilet tells TMZ he was at Disneyland in Anaheim last weekend when a staff member allegedly chased him down and asked him to change. He says the employee told him his over-sized jersey and mini-shorts weren't appropriate for a family environment. 

But get this ... Gilet made a huge stink on social media about the double standard in men and women's clothing allowed at the park but we're told he never filed a complaint with park officials.

Anthony says he's still got love for Minnie and Mickey though and plans to return to the park.

Talk about a goofy situation ...
