LAFF's first fabulous weekend
Whew. Some highlights from the Los Angeles Film Fest's first weekend:
Jason Alexander, Donald (You're Fired!) Trump, and Perry Reeves, who plays Ari Gold's wife on HBO's "Entourage," hung out at the "Ira and Abby" Los Angeles Film Festival's premiere after-party at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica Friday night.
The man himself, Leonard Cohen, looking trim and healthy, showed up for the premiere of "Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man" on Saturday June 24, at the John Ford Amphitheatre in Hollywood. Also on hand, Robin Tunney, Lian Lunson, the film's tall statuesque blonde director and Kevin Beggs, president of Lionsgate Television.
Fest honorary co-chair Allison Janney, Catherine Bell, Amy Smart, Peter Horton, Kelly Rutherford, Lisa and Dean Devlin, Frances Fisher and Summer Glau, best known for her role on the cult hit series, "Firefly," kicked off LAFF's June 24th Green Day festivities at the screening of "Who Killed the Electric Car" along with the entire cast and crew.
Former Vice President Al Gore and former Second Lady Tipper Gore, Dawn Hudson and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa attended the Los Angeles Film Festival's biggest event yet, a special Green Day outdoor screening of "An Inconvenient Truth" Saturday at the California Plaza.
Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora rocked out, and Truth's director Davis Guggenheim spoke to the crowd of several thousand about the importance of taking environmental protection action. Like now.
