hollywood privacywatch*: nobody puts ryan atwood in a corner...
Where: The Bar (5851 Sunset Blvd)
When: Saturday (9/17) evening
Why: Someone's birthday
Who: Ryan Atwood, Neal Schweiber and Feast Writer Who Talks Too Much
If it's not the really random and slightly famous person out of nowhere (i.e. David Charvet), my celebrity sightings usually follow the Rule of Three. I'll never ever see three equally famous people in the same bar or club. For example, It'll always be a B-list star coming out of the bathroom and two C-list stars in the parking lot. Always in triplicates. And it happened that way on Saturday night where I saw Ben McKenzie (B-list), Samm Levine (C-list) and Marcus Dunstan(um, E-list?) in the same room. Levine was actually very short and Dunstan was unremarkably very talkative, but McKenzie was the surprise. If he was anything like the character he plays on T.V., you'd think he'd be brooding in the corner, drinking some Scotch and wanting to hit something. But the dude LOVES TO DANCE!! This conversation happened at least 3 times during the night amongst my friends:
"Did that O.C. guy leave?"
"No, dude. He's still over there dancing!"
"Dude likes to dance, I guess."
And he did. I saw him dance (with a girl!) to Madonna's "Into The Groove" and he freakin' cut a rug. And I've never even used or thought of that phrase until I saw it. But that's what he did. Josh Schwartz must be holding the brother back. He could be the next Swayze, minus a few inches (it seems like he came up to my elbow). You heard it here first: Ben McSwayze in Breakin 3: Electric Boogaloo 4Ever.
