Actor Hospitalized After Being Shot Twice
(TMZ) Leo O'Brien -- the actor who played Bruce Leroy's little brother Richie in 1985's "The Last Dragon" -- was rushed to a hospital yesterday after being shot TWICE in broad daylight ... TMZ has learned.

It all went down in Harlem, NY when a gunman opened fire on the 40-year-old actor at 11:50 AM -- striking O'Brien once in the stomach and once in the left arm.

Witnesses called 911 -- and after O'Brien was transported to a nearby hospital, cops arrested a 50-year-old male suspected of pulling the trigger.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the suspect was booked for attempted murder and criminal possession of a firearm.

TMZ spoke with O'Brien who tells us he recognized the shooter -- but he has NO IDEA why the man would open fire on him.

O'Brien adds, "In life, sometimes sh*t happens ... but I'm alright and doing better."

Sho 'nuff. more on this story

Michael Buble To Give Fans Christmas in October
Michael Buble has set an October 24th release date for his new album, Christmas, on 143/Reprise Records.

Commented Buble, "Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year for me and my family so naturally it's been a dream of mine to make the 'ultimate' Christmas record. Even though it was summer and 95 degrees in LA, we totally got into the spirit of the holiday. Of course we decorated the studio with Christmas lights in the middle of July and that was a big help. One more thing, my mother told me it's the best record I ever made."

Christmas, produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica, was recorded primarily at Capitol Recording Studios in Hollywood and The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver. The album includes guest performances by Shania Twain on "White Christmas" and The Puppini Sisters on "Jingle Bells." Buble also put his unique take on such classics as "Silent Night," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," "It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." In addition, a Buble original "Cold December Night" will be included on CHRISTMAS. more on this story

Anthony Michael Hall Arrested
(TMZ) Anthony Michael Hall has been scaring the crap out of his neighbors for months ... screaming obscenities and challenging people to fights in the street ... this according to sources close to the actor.

Several people who live near Hall in Playa del Rey, CA tell TMZ ... when Hall was arrested for allegedly terrorizing his condo complex Tuesday night, no one was shocked because he's been acting strange for a while.

We're told Hall is often seen acting aggressive outside of his unit -- cussing at people who walk by, flipping them off and even attempting to squirt people with a hose ... for no apparent reason.

Our sources say neighbors complained to the housing association ... but no action had been taken against Hall.

One person tells us, "I have considered buying a gun to stay safe from Hall ... he's the scariest person I've ever encountered in my life." more on this story
