Love Reels ’Em In

Cirque du Soleil was a top draw for celebs in town for CES and other sundry workplace obligations, like those here filming a magic-based comedy.

Actors Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi were both shooting for Burt Wonderstone at Bally’s on Jan. 12. The 2013 flick, helmed by 30 Rock director and Emmy winner Don Scardino, features Carell’s titular Wonderstone as a down-on-his luck magician trying to revive a partnership with Buscemi’s Anton Lovecraft in order to knock Jim Carrey’s Steve Gray off the top of the magician pack.

Buscemi went to check out The Beatles Love on Jan. 8, then went back for a second helping Jan. 12, along with Carell and 13 producers, writers and directors from the movie, including Scardino.

Also at the show that night was couple Rick Fox and Eliza Dushku. Dushku was at CES to host the Entertainment Matters party. Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston, who was at the Canon Customer Appreciation Reception, was also at Love and managed not to neither drag it down a morally slippery slope, nor physically destroy it by using science for evil. Well done, Cranston.

Pitbull pulls into Calle Oak-cho

By Jason Scavone

Pitbull, that veritable fountainhead of ubiquitous club bumpers, got an early jump on his 30th birthday Jan. 6 at The Mirage's new club, 1 Oak. It really does make you stop and think how quickly 30 years can go by. It seems like just yesterday that Pitbull came into the world, born wearing a tiny suit and teensy sunglasses, insisting that his mother stop calling him Armando and address all entreaties to sleep through the night and eat all his baby food to "Li'l Pitbull."
