Shia LaBeouf just headbutted a guy in a bar after what sounds like a nuclear argument over his girlfriend's mom ... and TMZ has the video.
At 6 seconds into the clip, you see Shia (wearing a white cap) headbutt a bald guy.
Shia screams at the guy, "What are you saying about my girl's mom? Are you f**king kidding me bro?"
You hear a girl -- presumably the girl Shia was with -- screaming his name in a plea for him to stop.
The fight went down at a pub called Hobgoblin in South London Thursday night -- in a pretty rough part of town.
Shia knows the pub well ... he was in a fight at the same joint in November, 2012. And his bar fight history doesn't end there ... he also got his ass whooped on the street outside a Vancouver bar in 2011.

Lost Girl 4.10 "Waves": With the gang still reeling from Bo's shocking announcement, Kenzi signs them up for an undercover mission at a mysterious corporation. Meanwhile, Bo retraces the steps that may lead to her destiny. Airs Sunday, January 19th on Showcase.
The promo is also on SpoilerTV, if it's blocked in your region. Also, they have a transcript of a conference call where Kris Holden-Ried (Dyson), Zoie Palmer (Lauren) and Vanessa Piazza (producer) field press questions
and are dorks and possibly/definitely trolls. (OP: It's for SyFy, so they don't get into a lot of detail for things that have already happened this season, other than 4.01, although some people try their luck. Also, Kris reads fanfiction, and apparently talks about it with the producing staff, and dude, you may want to be careful there... ;-P)
Here's one question that at least applies to future/current episodes (that sorta tells us nothing, but I thought I'd include it):
Robin Burks: I also have a question for Vanessa from Twitter. Are we going to get more information about Bo's father this season?
Vanessa Piazza: You are. I mean the story line will continue. I can't say much more than that. But yes, the story line will continue. I can't say whether or not it will resolve itself, whether you'll meet him, whether you won't, whether he exists, but it is, you know, a subject I guess of the season. But that's about all I can say. (OP: Wow, such an informative answer! I am leaning towards Rainer just being an associate of some sort, possibly not tied to Bo's dad at all. Depends on how many mortal enemies Trick has. I'm thinking he has quite a few now.)

First, let's acknowledge one thing: 12 Years a Slave has achieved something amazing and wonderful.
With nine Oscar nominations, it has proven a brutal story about the worst degradations of American slavery can attract the biggest accolades Hollywood has to offer.
In particular, seeing Steve McQueen within spitting distance of becoming the first black person to win an Oscar for directing, you feel both a sense of progress for the moment and profound disappointment that such a benchmark would remain untouched in 2014. (That feeling persists for Gravity director Alfonso Cuaron, a Mexican director poised to make a similar achievement for Latinos).
But, as wonderful as it is to see the film's top acting and production talent rewarded for a bracing and informative work, it's worth noting that 2014 was a banner year for films about nonwhite people.
So you wonder if the success of 12 Years a Slave will prove another sad truism about Hollywood: that there's room for only one black film at the top of the heap.
Thanks to high-profile stars Oprah Winfrey and Forrest Whitaker, many have noted that their poignant film about a black White House servant, Lee Daniels' The Butler, got no nominations. But 42, the film about Jackie Robinson's fight to integrate baseball, didn't get any Oscar love, either. The only nomination for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom was for the song provided by Irish rockers U2. Fruitvale Station, the bracing look at a young black man killed by police, got nothing, either.
Even the year's biggest box office bomb, the awful update of The Lone Ranger, got some lower-profile nominations.
This is the challenge Hollywood faces in its own long walk toward greater diversity. The pressure is on to prove that 12 Years a Slave isn't the end of a trend, but the beginning. Instead of assuring the film industry that everything's just fine on the diversity front, we all should wonder why there is only one film, one or two actors, one director who gets such magnificent attention.
Los Angeles Times film critic Kenneth Turan notes that this is a time of transition for the film industry. Film legends Tom Hanks and Robert Redford got snubbed, too — even as Hanks' Somali-American co-star Barkhad Abdi was nominated as a supporting actor in Captain Phillips.
I won't go so far as to endorse the #notbuyingit hashtag created by those who remain disappointed that they haven't seen more diversity in top Hollywood awards contests (though it was fun to see critics have to rip up their "12 Years a Slave Got Snubbed" columns when the Golden Globes handed the film a best drama honor as its final award Sunday).
But I will suggest a different tag: #itsjustthebeginning. Because when you let people of color squeeze in the door, the job isn't complete until that entryway has been flung wide open.
Ellen Degeneres is currently preparing to host the Oscars -- which should please the majority of the nation's viewers who voted her as their favorite TV personality.
For the second year in a row, the talk show icon topped the list of America's favorite TV personalities and actors, which was released by The Harris Poll on Friday.
Coming in second was NCIS star Mark Harmon, with The Daily Show's Jon Stewart in third. Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory and The Tonight Show host Jay Leno were four and five, respectively.
DeGeneres has made it to the top 10 of America's most-liked every year since her talk show premiered in 2003, according to a press release from The Harris Poll. This is the third time she has been voted number one of the annual study.
The Harris Poll is based on the feedback of 2,311 U.S. adults surveyed online between Dec. 11 and 17, 2013 by Harris Interactive.

Sherri Shepherd, a cohost of The View, claims she’s not homophobic just because she believes homosexuality is a sin and LGBT people are going to hell.
Shepherd sought to defend herself in a recent interview with Fusion host Alicia Menendez. When Menendez asked what Shepherd felt has been the biggest misconception about her has been throughout her career, she said it was that people had labeled her antigay — unfairly, in her opinion. Shepherd insisted she had no malice toward LGBT people, saying her beliefs are the result of her Christian background and though she hates the sin, she still loves the sinner.
"I think people don't know my heart," Shepherd told Menendez. "I think people feel I'm very judgmental. I think people feel I'm very homophobic. If they knew me, and knew my heart. ... You grow up being a Christian and you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you're going to hell if you're a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches. So it's something that I grew up believing."
"I might not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you," Shepherd continued. "You may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me ... I don't say it's a choice. If you tell me, 'Sherri, I was born gay.' OK. I'm not gonna argue with you, because I can't tell you how you feel and what's going on inside. I'm trying to make it into heaven by the skin of my teeth ... I don't know who I'm gonna see. So if you tell me you're born [gay], I'm not gonna argue with you. And I absolutely respect you for that. I just ask that people respect how I feel, [I] respect how you feel and we can have a great dialogue."

Swedish singer will release third record in May
Lykke Li has said that her new album will be the third part in a trilogy of her albums, claiming that the album covers the "intense period" of being a woman in her 20s.
The Swedish singer-songwriter appears inside this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now. She features as part of a rundown of 100 albums to look forward to in 2014 containing exclusive studio reports and photos.
Speaking to NME about the new album, Li says her third album will be a natural follower to 2007 debut 'Youth Novels' and her second album, 'Wounded Rhymes'.
She said: "I see my albums as a trilogy, with 'Youth Novels' as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter."
A recent romantic split has informed the song writing on Li's new album, which as yet does not have a title.
She added: "It's always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman."
Li also claims her third album will establish her place in the music industry.
She admitted:"I always feel like I've been slightly misunderstood. As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don't really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I've found my voice."

Two screenwriters are standing up to make the claim that Fox's New Girl was ripped off from their television pilot script
In a lawsuit filed in California federal court on Thursday, Stephanie Counts and Shari Gold say that the hit comedy is based upon their script work for a proposed television series titled Square One. Besides money and credit, they demand an injunction that halts further filming and distribution of the popular comedy.
According to the lawsuit, "Any differences between the Square One scripts and New Girl are so small and insignificant that they cannot be afforded copyright protection, and are, in fact, nothing more than transparent attempts to hide Defendants’ blatant plagiarism. These differences are more akin to eraser marks or ink blots on Stephanie and Shari’s creation and cannot be treated as original expression."
Demonstrating substantially similarity is crucial for plaintiffs, but perhaps just as important, especially for unknown writers, is the necessity of telling a credible story about how the defendants gained access to the allegedly stolen work. In a 92-page complaint, the plaintiffs attempt one, probably in anticipation of a defense that New Girl came about through "independent creation." The plaintiffs' tale includes allegations how Counts and Gold shopped their script through William Morris Endeavor, how they once proposed Zooey Deschanel for the lead and how Fox made a $10,000 settlement offer.
The lawsuit says the two, who met each other as journalism students at the University of Georgia, wrote their work in 2006 based upon "Stephanie’s real-life experience when she discovered her husband was having an affair, leading her to move into a three-man bachelor pad."
Counts had moved in with her brother, a Hollywood stuntman, and two of his friends in Culver City. During this time, she took notes, and the roommates are described as the inspiration for Square One.
After a first draft of the TV pilot was completed, they say they shared it with Holly Harter, an independent producer. Harter allegedly told them it would work better as a film, so they rewrote it. Then, they shopped it around.
In 2008, according to the complaint, Harter emailed Counts that she had sent a solicited copy to WME partner Adam Venit. A few months later, Harter told the plaintiffs that Venit had introduced her to agent David Karp. The script was shopped by the talent agency to directors, says the lawsuit, and "Endeavor does 'coverage' on Square One in 2008, essentially giving the script a favorable grade that allowed it to be accessed by all its agents."
The following year, the plaintiffs say they suggested to Harter that Deschanel be a potential lead, but Harter didn't know who the the actress was. A few months later, they say they decided to stop working with Harter after having trouble understanding why Square One was "on the backburner when the script [had] been receiving considerable interest from agents at a top talent agency, defendant WME."
Counts says she spoke on the phone with Karp, but that in-person meetings fell through due to scheduling conflicts. Afterward, WME's attitudes allegedly changed toward them. The plaintiffs had trouble getting their calls returned.
"On February 17, 2011, Stephanie and Shari become dismayed when, for the first time, they hear that their work Square One appears to have been poached," says the lawsuit. "A friend who had read Square One, emails Stephanie and Shari that the logline and summary of a show under development, titled Chicks and Dicks, sounds remarkably similar to Square One."
It's alleged that "Chicks and Dicks" became New Girl. Authorship on the series has been credited to Elizabeth Meriwether, a WME client.
The lawsuit alleges how this happened.
WME agent Cori Wellins along with Rick Rosen, another WME partner, allegedly passed along Square One to Meriwether and industry luminary Peter Chernin's companies. According to the complaint, "Meriwether and Meriwether Pictures rewrite the Square One script for a television production the Chernin Defendants, and defendant WME, wish to exploit."
By 2012, Meriwether wrote her script and it is directed as a pilot episode by Jake Kasdan. It was picked up by 20th Century Fox Television. All are named as defendants in the lawsuit.
The complaint offers several pages of claimed similarities. Among them: "both protagonists are awkward, quirky women around the age of 30;""the plot of both works revolves around the protagonist moving in with three guys;""the three new guy roommates in each work have identical personality traits;""the best friend in each work is named 'CeC'” or has the initials 'C.C.;'" and "the protagonists are both sexually inexperienced."
In 2011, the plaintiffs retained a lawyer, and the defendants were informed they were infringing on Square One. That lawyer, though, also represented Kasdan (whose father is Lawrence Kasdan), but allegedly told Counts and Gold it wouldn't be a problem so long as the director wasn't sued.
"In January 2012, the Fox Defendants’ attorneys make a settlement offer to Stephanie and Shari of approximately $10,000 in an attempt to silence and prevent them from seeking formal legal action against the Fox Defendants, the Chernin defendants, defendant WME, defendant Meriwether, and defendant Meriwether Pictures," says the lawsuit.
The attorney for Counts and Gold allegedly recommended they take the money, but they refused what they saw as a "paltry" offer. The attorney was terminated, according to the complaint.
Andrew Ryan at Ryan Law is representing the plaintiffs in a lawsuit that alleges direct, contributory and vicarious copyright infringement. They are seeking compensatory, statutory, punitive and exemplary damages. Adding that monetary damages are "inadequate to compensate them for the damage done," they also want to be credited as the true creators and the defendants to "issue a public apology."
Fox wasn't immediately available for comment. WME declined comment. We'll update if there are any further responses.
Start brewing up your artisan celery cocktails, and stock up on all things pickled: Season 4 of"Portlandia" is on the way. Co-creators, co-writers and co-stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will once again be portraying a variety of Portlanders, and as always, they'll be joined by an impressive, eclectic list of guest stars.
Which guest stars, you ask? These guest stars: Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Vanessa Bayer ("Saturday Night Live"), Kirsten Dunst ("Melancholia," "Spider-Man"), Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), singer-songwriter k.d. lang (who lives in Portland), Duff McKagan (Gun N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver), Silas Weir Mitchell(Monroe, on the filmed-in-Portland "Grimm"), Michael Nesmith (The Monkees), Mark Proksch ("The Office"), Maya Rudolph ("The Way, Way Back," "Bridesmaids"), columnist Dan Savage, Nick Swardson ("Reno 911!"), jazz duo Tuck and Patti, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) and Olivia Wilde ("HER," "House").
We'll also see Paul Allen, that comedy master, and members of the Portland Trail Blazers turning up.
Some famiiar "Portlandia" faces return, too, such as Kyle MacLachlan (aka Portland's Mayor), Jeff Goldblum, Ed Begley Jr., Steve Buscemi, Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent), Kumail Nanjiani, Jason Sudeikis (the cult leader of the farm where Colin came from way back in Season 1), and director Gus Van Sant.
Look for Armisen, Brownstein and co-creator, co-writer and director Jonathan Krisel to touch on such topics as love of bacon and the crush of technology, along with new characters including eco-terrorists "Benji and Dakota," storytellers "Robert and Grabriella," and restaurant workers "Troy and Lillian."
The new series of 10 episodes kicks off on IFC, Thursday, Feb. 27.
We at Betabeat are avid followers of Lindsay Lohan’s Twitter feed. After all, you never know what you might find there.
So when we saw a LiLo tweet promoting taxicab disrupter Uber’s services and offering a promo code, we just had to know: was this the result of an official partnership between the startup and the star, or was Lindsay up to something shady?
Use my Uber promo code, 8g4wy, and get $20 off your first Uber ride. Redeem it at uber.com/invite/8g4wy.—
Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan) January 12, 2014
It turns out the latter is true — and Ms. Lohan isn’t the only celebrity pimping out Uber to her followers so that she can get discounts on the rides herself. Neil Patrick Harris and Snoop Dogg are guilty, too.
An Uber rep told us the partnerships weren’t official endorsements and that the stars’ choices to tweet the codes were “organic.” Every Uber user has the privilege of sharing their code in an effort to collect discounts. Each time someone uses your Uber code, you get $10 to use on future rides yourself. This month, a special is running so the person who owns the code gets $20.
What’s shady is that the codes only work the first time the fan uses Uber — so Lindsay Lohan is getting a $20 credit because your friend used her code, when you could have been the one to get it.
You know how whenever your aunt goes to a new hair salon, she bugs you to go get your hair cut there so that she’ll get $5 off her next ’80s perm? Linds, NPH and Snoop are all being that annoying aunt right now and hogging all the discounts for their rich, famous asses.
Furthermore, Uber told us there’s no limit to how many times one person’s promo code can be used. Lindsay Lohan has 7.6 million followers. She’s probably got free Uber rides lined up until 2026 at this point.
Here’s a look at some of the tweets the celebs have pushed. Snoop’s code is UncleSnoopATL, basically the vanity license plate equivalent of an Uber coupon, which doesn’t seem that “organic”:
Party wit tha boss this Sat in ATL n get a night of FREE rides on @Uber_ATL. Enter code "UncleSnoopATL" n share !! blog.uber.com/unclesnoop—
Snoop Dogg (@SnoopDogg) September 25, 2013
And Neil Patrick Harris has used his code under the guise of preventing drunk driving, when he was directly cashing out on it. Ew.
I love UBER! Way better than a taxi. Sign up using my promo code, get $20 off your 1st ride: uber.com/invite/8lf32 Don't drink & drive.—
Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) December 18, 2013
Don’t drink & drive this July 4th weekend. Use Uber instead – it’s rad. Sign up, use code ‘8lf32’ and you’ll get $20 credit. You’re welcome.—
Neil Patrick Harris (@ActuallyNPH) July 02, 2013
Seth Rogen apparently used the code to collect cash for charity. So maybe there’s some hope for Hollywood.
Signup to @Uber_LA w/promo code: HilarityForCharity and u'll get $20 off ur 1st ride! #Uber will give a donation 4 every person that rides!—
Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) April 24, 2013
This also explains why people are spending time to defraud Tinder users in an effort to get them to use an Uber promo code. Whoever was behind that fake Uber ad stood to make a lot of money in Uber credits off of Tinder users.
We asked Uber a bunch of followup questions about the stars seemingly abusing the system, and whether this was their intent when they created the promo codes. We noted that the system is probably very effective at getting the app onto users’ phones.
“We’re happy to see that all kinds of people, including celebrities, are excited about our superior service and want to share their Uber love with friends,” Uber rep Andrew Noyes told us.
Of course, it’s not morally wrong for these stars to exploit Uber’s promo code system by profiting off of their huge fan bases. But they’re taking discounts away from normal people, plus it’s just trashy — especially if they’re pretending to do it just because they’re concerned about drunk driving, as Mr. Harris did.
No matter how hard your last movie flopped, this isn’t a good look. Celebrities should let us plebes wallow in the first‐time‐user discount game while they stick to shilling Vitamin Water.
I thought the second season would still have Hannibal working with the team, but I guess they find out in the first episode. I was hoping Hannibal wouldn't get found out this early :(
In an unexpected turn of events, Warner Bros. has pushed back the release date for Batman vs. Superman. Originally slated for a July 17th, 2015 bow, the Man of Steel follow-up will now be released on May 6th, 2016. The move was made in order to allow "the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story." Its original release date will now be taken by the Peter Pan movie Pan. Below is WB's press release announcing and detailing the news.
BURBANK, CA – January 17, 2014 – Warner Bros. Pictures announced today that the release of Zack Snyder’s untitled Superman/Batman film has been moved to May 6, 2016, allowing the filmmakers time to realize fully their vision, given the complex visual nature of the story. The decision was made following the shift of the start of production to second quarter of this year. The Studio has also set a July 17, 2015, worldwide release date for its as-yet-untitled all-new Peter Pan adventure. Joe Wright will direct the epic live-action film about the boy who would never grow up, created by J.M. Barrie. The dual date announcement was made by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President, International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
In making the announcement, Fellman stated, “We are happy to take advantage of these coveted summer dates, which are perfect for two of our biggest tentpole releases. We share the fans’ excitement to see DC Comics’ most popular figures, Superman and Batman, together on the big screen for the first time, which will now be arriving in theatres in May 2016. Peter Pan has delighted people of every generation for more than a century, so we are thrilled to bring him back to the screen next summer for today’s moviegoers.”
Kwan Vandenberg added, “We know that there is already great anticipation building for the next Super Hero film from Zack Snyder, and we are equally eager to see what he has in store for Superman and Batman as they share the big screen for the first time ever. The summer release corridor is also perfect for Joe Wright’s ambitious new Peter Pan adventure, reimagining the ageless story of the beloved and forever-young hero for audiences worldwide.”
Zack Snyder’s Superman/Batman film stars Henry Cavill, reprising his role as Superman/Clark Kent, and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The film will also reunite “Man of Steel” stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane, and also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince.
Snyder will direct the film from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer, from a story co-created by Goyer and Snyder. Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder are producing, with Benjamin Melniker, Michael E. Uslan and Wesley Coller serving as executive producers.
The film is based on Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster, Batman characters created by Bob Kane, and Wonder Woman created by William Moulton Marston, published by DC Entertainment.
The May 6th release date was previously filled by an untitled Marvel Studios movie. The company has been known for releasing films in that time slot for nearly annually for over a decade. It looks like WB/DC is hoping to find similar success. The unspecified Marvel movie will most likely move now.
This announcement also comes off the heels of a rumor claiming that Ben Affleck had sustained a leg injury, thus postponing production on Batman vs. Superman by at least a month. It's unknown if that had an affect on the release date change, or if the rumor is even true at all. Well, stay tuned for more news as we have it.
Batman vs. Superman got pushed back a year because Terrio just now got finished laughing at Goyer's draft.— Cameron Carpenter (@Lumetian) January 18, 2014
Johnny Depp Engaged to Amber Heard
It's hard to keep a secret in Hollywood, and although Amber Heard was seen trying to cover up a diamond ring on her left hand on Monday, she doesn't need to hide it anymore – PEOPLE has confirmed that she's engaged to Johnny Depp.
"Of course they couldn't be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together," a source tells PEOPLE, adding that Heard has "told close friends" the news.
"Amber has really taken well to the kids and really enjoys spending time with them. And she's even taken Lily shopping on her own for some bonding time."
The couple, who met on the set of their 2011 movie The Rum Diary went public with their relationship the following year after Depp, 50, announced his split from partner of 14 years Vanessa Paradis.
He and the French actress and singer have two children, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, but never married.
Heard, 27, who has said she's bisexual, was previously in a four-year relationship with Hawaiian artist and photographer Tasya van Ree.
The newly engaged couple are teaming up again on the big screen in the upcoming film London Fields, which stars Heard and features Depp in a cameo.
ABC has released a whole lot of images from the January 19 episode of Revenge.
The episode is called "Hatred" and here are the new photos:
