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.

New Jersey newlyweds got an unexpected gift at their wedding reception: a performance by Taylor Swift. Taylor played a stripped down version of her song Blank Space at Max Singer and Kenya Smith’s reception (in Long Beach Township) on Saturday as amazed guests looked on and sang along. Taylor agreed to attend after getting a letter in April from the groom’s sister. She wrote about how her brother was a huge fan and how he and their ailing mother had danced to Taylor’s song after the newlyweds were married in a hospital room. The groom’s mother died shortly thereafter. Taylor had contacted the groom’s sister and they planned the surprise visit.

One of the “Sons of Anarchy” and a ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle‘ teamed up for a real life rescue mission — pulling a guy from an overturned car … TMZ has learned.
‘SOA’ star Tommy Flanagan and Alan Ritchson – Raphael from the latest ‘TMNT’ movie — were headed to the Houston airport on Sunday after a comic con event … when they saw a truck blow a tire and flip across the highway.
The driver of the wrecked truck, Jonathan Elder, tells us the actors rushed to pull his unconscious brother out of the passenger seat. In a scene straight out of an action flick … he says ‘Raphael’ and ‘Chibs’ used a crowbar to free his bro right before the truck caught fire.
BTW … the guy driving Tommy and Alan to the airport is a military vet who provided medical assistance until emergency crews arrived. Tommy took a pic with him after the incident.
Talk about a dream team.

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.

Bam Margera‘s wife got busted for DUI after getting into an accident while driving the same Porsche Bam was in a wreck years ago … TMZ has learned.
According to cops in West Chester, PA … Nicole Boyd collided with another driver in a Hyundai earlier this month. Nicole said she had the green light, but the other driver insisted she ran a red. Either way, Bam and Nicole’s Porsche Panamera got banged up badly.
Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene, and the other driver was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. Meanwhile, officers said Nicole smelled of alcohol and bombed field sobriety tests. She was arrested and booked for DUI.
Bam’s Panamera might be cursed. As we reported, he got sideswiped in the ride shortly after getting it in 2011.

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.
