An actor from the movie Inglorious Basterds has threatened Mel Gibson with a baseball bat to the head, calling for "euthanasia" on the actor in a "Mel-o-caust."
The excerpt from the TMZ show is blurbed on its website with the following inadequate description: "Today on TMZ Live -- Eli "The Bear Jew" Roth stopped by to say he's ready to smack Mel Gibson upside the head with his "Inglourious Basterds" bat."
"Smack" is an understatement.
When Roth appeared on the show (by chance, "in the middle of his run") he was full of "glee," he said, because of what Mel Gibson had done.

During it, Roth said about Gibson:
"we'll euthanize him."
"he's a Holocaust denier"
"we're going to have a Mel-o-caust"
"we're just going to take the baseball bat...boom...one swing on the side of his head"
Roth is a star of last year's anti-Nazi movie--Inglourious Basterds, with an 'e'--based on the older classic, Inglourious Bastards, with an 'a.' The difference between the older movie and the newer one, is that the team of Americans that destroy Hitler and the Nazis is originally multi-ethnic American, but exclusively Jewish American in the remake.
Roth appeared on the show in gym clothes, as though he had just jogged onto set from a run. The segment in fact was much more rehearsed than it was presented to be. A clip from the movie Inglourious Basterds was incorporated into Roth's appearance on TMZ and aired on television, but was then removed from the Internet version of the same appearance. The scene shows Roth in the character Sgt. Donny Donowitz using a baseball bat to execute a Nazi.
