DANIELS “BOOTED” FROM MOVIE

Great actors are gutsy. But it doesn’t always pay off.
Jeff Daniels told [email protected] he botched an audition for a Diane Keaton movie when he went for a daring take on a character while trying out for casting director Juliet Taylor.
“I decided my character needed to be a young stud,” he said, “So I bought cowboy boots and when I met Diane (Keaton), I put the cowboy boots on and placed them on Juliet Taylor’s desk and kind of sat there like I was really confident with my arms crossed. I didn’t get the part.”

THE JAMES GANG PARTIES ON

Lily James partied among the walking dead at the L.A. premiere of “Pride + Prejudice + Zombies.” Also at the opening night event was “Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey, who stars alongside James, Suki Waterhouse and Bella Heathcote in the bizarre Jane Austen adaptation, complete with martial arts showdowns. James’ “Downton Abbey” co-star Joanne Froggatt was also on hand, surely wondering if that soon-to-end PBS show might have lasted one more season had they simply written in a few brain-eating villains.

THE DONALD’S DAD KNEW A DEAL

Our insider says, “Once when he bought three suits, he wanted the alterations to be done without charge. The management refused.”

JAMMIES ARE JUSTIN’S JAM

Justin Bieber is getting comfortable with a Selena Gomez look-a-like — in more ways than one. The pop star looked cozy in a pair of pajama pants while taking a stroll with a mystery brunette outside his Beverly Hills hotel room Thursday night. It’s hard to keep up with the 21-year-old “Sorry” singer’s love life. Just two weeks ago Bieber was snapped kissing longtime gal pal Hailey Baldwin and last month, he was rumored to be hooking up with 36-year-old Kourtney Kardashian.

SCHUMER SMILES THROUGH THE STORM

Comedian Amy Schumer didn’t seem too upset about her “joke stealing” scandal on the set of her hit Comedy Central show “Inside Amy Schumer.” The 34-year-old “Trainwreck” star was accused of pilfering material, but denied committing plagiarism. “On my life, I have never and would never steal a joke,” she tweeted. The Emmy winner also defended herself on Jim Norton‘s Sirius XM show: “I would never, ever do that and I never have,” she said adding that she would even take a polygraph test.

BROOK BOOKS IT IN LONDON

Brooklyn Beckham knows how to dine and dash. The 16-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham was spotted running from a fire escape entrance at around midnight after meeting ex-girlfriend, 18-year-old actress Chloe Grace Moretz for dinner at a fancy restaurant in London on Thursday. “The 5th Wave” star made a more graceful exit separately with a mystery blond man sporting an all-black ensemble.

WASHINGTON’S WHISKERS FOR SALE

Funerary shavings said to have come from the face of George Washington can be yours for the low price of just $ 22,850. That’s one of the stranger offerings at the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show that opens Feb. 16 and runs through Presidents Day weekend. A $ 28,500 dinner platter used by the Founding Father is also for sale, as is a legendary court case filed from the JFK assassination case belonging to New Orleans D.A. Jim Garrison. Those are sure to spark conspiracy theories, especially since they’re going for a whopping $ 168,500.

BILLY GIVES GOODELL THE FINGER

Don’t stop the fireworks! The company behind Butterfinger bars has offered to pay the fines that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell imposes on players for “excessive celebrations” in the end zones. The candymen say they’ll cover up to $ 50,000 that any pro might rack up in the final three games of the season. Comedian Billy Eichner and famously excessive celebrator Terrell Owens helped launch the PR stunt.
