Leonardo DiCaprio is playing hard to get for lawyers who want to grill him under oath in connection with a lawsuit filed by a former associate of fraudster Jordan Belfort who claims he was defamed by the film “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
Andrew Greene, who was on the board of directors of the infamous brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont, contends that the movie character called “Rugrat” is based on him and is depicted as a “criminal,” “drug user,” and “degenerate.”
Greene was never criminally charged by the feds in the massive boiler room scheme that fleeced investors.

Justin Martin — who co-starred with Zac Efron in ‘High School Musical 3‘ — will be locked up for 18 months after pleading guilty to 5 gun charges … TMZ has learned.
The Suffolk County D.A.’s office tells us Martin appeared in court Tuesday for sentencing. In addition to the jail time … he also got one year probation, during which he has to lay off drugs and booze and stay away from the scene of the crime.
As we reported back in July … Martin ran away from cops in Boston and pointed a gun at officers before he was chased and captured. He pled guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a gun and ammunition, carrying a loaded gun and firing a gun near a building.
Martin avoided a stiffer penalty — the D.A. was gunning to lock him up for 3 years.

You won’t have to wait long to see Norman Reedus back on AMC as his new unscripted motorcycle series, Ride with Norman Reedus, debuts June 12 on the network, but you will have to wait another four-and-a-half months to see if Daryl Dixon survived that season 6 cliffhanger of The Walking Dead.
How often has the actor been asked who died since the season finale aired?
“Probably about a zillion times,” Reedus said when he stopped by Entertainment Weekly Thursday morning. “Like, all the time.” But he also says if he were in that position of wondering, he would not want to know the answer. “I don’t like spoilers, to be honest, I don’t want people to tell me the ending to the movie when we sit down in a movie theater. I don’t like them, so I don’t do them. I like the enthusiasm behind everyone wanting to know, but it’s a good feeling to have that enthusiasm, so let’s hold onto it.”

Former “Saved by the Bell” star Dustin Diamond is back in jail in Wisconsin after an official says he violated the terms of his parole.
Ozaukee County jail records show Diamond, who was recently released after serving time for disorderly conduct and concealed-weapon convictions, was arrested Wednesday.
An official at the jail who answered the phone Wednesday night but declined to give his name said Diamond was in custody because of a probation violation. The official said he didn’t have any further details.
The 39-year-old Diamond was convicted in Wisconsin last year on the charges stemming from a 2014 bar room brawl. He was released in April.

Netflixis about to get a whole lot more magical. There’s a whole cadre of additional Disney films coming to the streaming service this September as Netflix becomes the exclusive streaming service for movies from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm and Pixar.
This announcement comes in the form of Netflix’s latest blog detailing the year’s coming releases. There isn’t any concrete information on which titles are being added later this fall just yet, but it will be comprised of major theatrical releases and more. There’s already a smattering of movies like Hercules, The Emperor’s New Groove and Mulan already available to view, but September should see that expanded considerably.
This announcement is the fruit of an agreement signed into life back in 2012, which made Netflix the exclusive U.S. subscription service for first-run live-action and animated features from Walt Disney. It’s finally time for Netflix subscribers to reap the benefits with a wide breadth of content from the Walt Disney umbrella. Does that mean we could see The Force Awakens coming to Netflix in the near future? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled just in case.

This story isn’t about Fight Club – but the author Chuck Palaniuk. He has (several other) another book called “Lullaby” and he wants it to come to the big screen.
Chuck Palahniuk, who has built a devoted cult following around such novels as “Fight Club,” “Choke,” “Haunted” as well as the offbeat travel guide, “Fugitives & Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon,” may see his novel “Lullaby” turned into a movie, thanks to crowdfunding.
A Kickstarter campaign seeking $250,000 has been launched by Josh Leake, a producer, director and co-founder of the Portland Film Festival, and Andy Mingo, a producer and director. Mingo is married to writer Lidia Yuknavitch, who is in a writing group with Palahniuk.
Palahniuk is an executive producer of “Lullaby,” and will co-write the screenplay.
We first got hooked on Chuck’s novels in the late 90′s, like some of you. We’re fans first, and so like you, as directors and producers we want to make sure Lullaby is the film we all want it to be, and not some watered-down too easy commercial yawner.”
Contributors to the Kickstarter campaign get a variety of their own incentives, depending on how much money they put toward the cause. A $5 contribution gets a personalized library checkout card; $30 or more gets your name in the credits; $600 or more gets a customized “Lullaby” starling tattoo; and $2,000 or more lets you be an extra.
As we write this, the project has 224 backers, who have pledged $15,832 toward the $250,000 goal. Read more here and see the kickstarter link:
