Battle of 'Annapolis'

Are things getting a little too real on the set of "Annapolis"?

Spies in Philadelphia claim a boxing scene between Tyrese and James Franco turned into an off-camera brawl Wednesday.

The two play Naval Academy midshipmen in the Disney film. Director Justin Lin is said to have already yelled "Cut!" when Franco threw two more punches at Tyrese - one landing on his forehead and the other on his jaw.

"Tyrese shouted, 'Ease up! Be normal, it's only a [bleeping] movie!'" a source tells Daily News contributor Jawn Murray. "The extras on set erupted in applause that someone had finally confronted Franco." The source added, "When Tyrese realized that Franco caused a knot to form on his forehead, he confronted him. The crew quickly ran to separate [them]."

According to people on the set, Method actor Franco has apparently gotten so immersed in his role that he sometimes forgets he is acting.

Denying any friction, Disney publicist Katherine Orloff argued, "There was absolutely no fighting after the director yelled, 'Cut!'"

That scene is up there with the horse's head in the bed and Robert DeNiro's "You lookin' at me?" scenes as all-time classic Hollywood. I'd say my scene in The Muppets Take Manhattan isn't far behind too though.
