T.I. Could've Been Cast In Tower Heist & World War Z, But…

He was kind of busy … in prison.

Yet another perfectly good reason to stay out of jail!

Spending nearly a year in jail really took a toll on T.I.'s life, both personally and professionally. We had no idea, but according to the rapper, offers to star in some pretty high profile movies came rolling in just about the time he was getting carted off in orange. So, he had to turn them all down.

But just wait till you hear the opportunities he missed out on! He says:

Eddie Murphy To Get Serious

Filed under: TV NewsEddie MurphyFilm Flickers

Eddie Murphy is going the serious route!

The actor, who recently premiered the movie Tower Heist, is reportedly in talks with HBO films to star in - and executive produce - a biopic about the controversial former mayor of Washington, D.C. Marion Barry, who was imprisoned for six years after being videotaped smoking crack cocaine, and then went on to run the city once again from 1994-1998!

If all goes as planned, Spike Lee will serve as director, and John Ridley is attached to write!

Certainly sounds like there some serious talent on board!

Could be really good!

What do U think?? Do U want to see this one made??

ATTN: Gold Diggers! Big Time Producer Brian Grazer And Fiancee Split!

Filed under: Love Line

Brian Grazer

Looks like someone is gonna need a date to the Oscars! (Take us!)

You know Brian Grazer - he's the dude who replaced his crazy buddy Brett Ratner as the producer of next year's Academy Awards.

N-E-Way, the Hollywood producer has split from his concert pianist fiancee.

Grazer proposed to Chau-Giang Thi Nguyen back in April, but the couple has recently called it quits.

Don't worry, the A Beautiful Mind producer is moving on! (snaps fingers.)

Since his failed romance with Keli Lee, an executive at Disney. He even took her as his date to the premiere of his film Tower Heist back in October.

Hmm… that was quick. We smell a cheater!

Either way, Brian, we'd love to be your date to the Oscars!

Thanks for the thoughtful words, Brett.

For the first time since exiting the Oscars, Brett Ratner sent out some tweets today, which are as follows:

G-d Bless Heavy D! He was a great man and one of my closest friends. I miss him!

He then followed up with a plug, tweeting:

Brian Grazer WILL Replace Brett Ratner As Oscar Producer

Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzBusiness BlitzOscars

And if it doesn't work out with Brian, there are still a few other executive producers on Tower Heist that might be interested! Ha!

Last we heard about Academy President Tom Sherak's search for a replacement Oscar producer, Tower Heist's Brian Grazer was the frontrunner for the job.

Sure enough, Sherak has confirmed that Grazer WILL step in as Brett Ratner's replacement. Here's what the Academy Prez had to say about it:

Brian Grazer Is Frontrunner To Replace Brett Ratner As Oscar Producer

Why does the Academy feel the need to ONLY choose people from Tower Heist to produce and host the show???

Now that Tower Heist director Brett Ratner and Tower Heist producer/star Eddie Murphy have resigned from the Oscars, Academy president Tom Sherak is interested in getting TOWER HEIST producer Brian Grazer to take over for Brett.

No word yet on who will take over for Eddie, but there are plenty of other Tower Heist actors who would probably be up for the job! Maybe they can ask Ben Stiller or Matthew Broderick! OR maybe Alan Alda is game!

What do U think? Should Brian Grazer take over as Oscar producer? Or would U prefer someone NOT associated with Tower Heist???

Brett Ratner's Homophobic Slur Caught On Tape!

Ugh. Clearly this was not just something he said on the fly and quickly regretted.

Brett Ratner has come under a great deal of - warranted, mind you - criticism for his despicable use of a gay slur during a Q&A session Friday after a screening of his new movie, Tower Heist, and now, we've finally got video of the incident as it went down!

Watch (above) as he's asked about the rehearsal process, only to pause and announce "Rehearsal's for ****," as though it's some kind of hilarious joke (at the 2:45 mark)!

Just so clASSy, right?

Rolled right off his tongue!

Clearly, this guy uses just amount as thought and tact here as he did during the entire filming of X-Men: The Last Stand, so we're tragically not too shocked at his behavior - but we certainly think that this should be a wake-up call to everyone in this industry who continues to give him work!

Disgusting!
