One of the original characters from Martin Scorsese’s Mafia masterpiece Goodfellas is looking to shake down The Simpsons for a cool $250 million. Frank Sivero who played a secondary character in the movie by the name of Frankie Carbone is looking for the huge payday from Fox Television. He claims the show’s animated Italian mob character, Louie, is too similar to his.

Louie first popped up on The Simpsons in ’91 — one year after Goodfellas was released in theaters. As reported in Deadline, Louie and Frankie do have their similarities but Sivero seems to be 20 years too late with this lawsuit.

After trading pick-up lines with Ellen DeGeneres, Ice Cube continued his press run on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night. The South Central OG looked ahead to the N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton (which has just wrapped up principal photography) and got nostalgic about all the havoc the group used to wreak back in the day.

After Leonardo DiCaprio passed on playing Apple founder Steve Jobs in the official film adaptation of his Author Walter Isaacson written biography, Christain Bale has reportedly taken on the role. The movie is rumored to be titled Jobs and will be directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin. Scott Rudin will produce along with Mark Gordon and Guymon Casady.

Sorkin said the film will revolve around Apple’s famous product launches and will be divided into 3 long acts.

“The first one being the Mac,” he told the Daily Beast. “The second one being NeXT, after he had left Apple. And the third one being the iPod. “It’s a little like writing about the Beatles,” he added. “There are so many people out there that know him and revere him.”

Shooting will reportedly start this Spring. (via Variety)

Miss Info: I’m just as excited as the next person about the idea of Chris Rock and Prince hitting that legendary SNL stage…The only problem is….this only guarantees that the opening monologue from Rock will be incredible and biting and edgy and on point…and the two musical performances by Prince will be entertaining and possibly bizarre and hopefully vintage and definitely memorable. But what about the other hour and change of skits? With the horrible writing and mediocre comic skill that we’ve suffered through pretty consistently for the past few seasons on this show….I’m not that optimistic. Maybe they should let Chris Rock handle all the scripts and bring in some of his own co-stars? Seriously. Please?

Anyway, it all goes down on Novemember 1st. Mark your calendars!

A drunk flight from Ireland to a jail cell in New York doesn’t sound out of the ordinary, does it? (Hey, we’ve all been there). But that’ll be leaving out the best part(s) of how Shia LaBeouf got arrested this summer. Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, the Fury actor gave a detailed account of his truly bizarre run-in with the law, which involved a 30-minute conversation with a homeless soldier, an invitation to a Cabaret show and giving a leather pants-wearing Allan Cumming a slap on the ass. Turn down for what?
