We heard recently that AZIZ ANSARI, SETH ROGEN, and BILL MURRAY were teaming up for a movie called “Being Mortal” . . . which Aziz was also directing. It sounded too good to be true, and apparently it was.
The production was suspended indefinitely on Monday, because someone accused Murray of inappropriate behavior.
There’s no word what he did, but Aziz and Seth reportedly had nothing to do with it. The production company is looking into it, and there’s no word yet if filming will resume, or if Murray will be part of the movie going forward.
(The “New York Post” has a rundown of Bill Murray’s history of “incidents” on movie sets. Let’s just say he’s not always easy to work with.)

Yesterday in the JOHNNY DEPP / AMBER HEARD trial, Amber’s attorney read a weird text exchange between them where Johnny talked about going for the throat, Amber said, “My throat is yours,” and Johnny replied, quote, “I have other uses for your throat, which do not include injury.”
MIKE TYSON landed several blows on a moron who was bugging him on an airplane. Mike’s camp says the guy threw a water bottle at him. There’s video of the incident, but it doesn’t show that happening. The guy looked to have suffered some cuts to his face, but nothing too severe.

STEPHEN KING wrote his scariest story on Twitter the other day . . . a recipe for salmon in the MICROWAVE. Users had a field day commenting on the atrocity, that even a celebrity chef called it a, “horror movie” and gave Steve some cooking tips.
Dinner: Get a nice salmon filet at the supermarket, not too big.
Put some olive oil and lemon juice on it.
Wrap it in damp paper towels.
Nuke it in the microwave for 3 minutes or so.
Maybe add a salad.
