by Mara Siegler · January 5, 2011

Ron Perlman, Dominic Sena, Nicholas CageNicolas Cage left the dinosaur skull at home and went on an epic and demonic quest, Kevin Spacey discussed 'Superman,' Nick Zinner confused and disappointed by failing to play "Maps," and Chloe Sevigny hung out with Vinny from the Jersey Shore.  Seriously! You've got to find out what happened last night.


Where: AMC Loews Lincoln Square, Landmark on the Park

Who Was There: Robert Sheehan, Stephen Campbell Moore, Claire Foy, Nicholas Cage, Ron Perlman, Brittny Gastineau, Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer

Other Details: In Nicholas Cage's new movie "Season of the Witch," he plays a Crusades-era knight who tries to transport a suspected witch to a monastery where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.  Think "Lord of The Rings," meets "The Exorcist." Jill Zarin walked the carpet, proudly telling everyone it was her 10th wedding Anniversary and showing off a locket from her husband. The man of the hour skipped out of the after-party early, but "Hellboy" Ron Perlman stayed and chatted up fans and his cast mates Stephen Campbell Moore and Claire Foy. [Via]

Who Was There: Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio, Chloe Sevigny, Spike Lee, Penny Marshall, Jeremy Sisto, Joe Frazier, Mayor Michael Bloomberg

Other Details: There was a Knicks game last night which would not usually be note-worthy on this section or really on this blog. However, Chloe Sevigny was there cheering on Amare Stoudemire next to Vinny from the Jersey Shore. Weird. If these two start dating, we can add this to End of Days signs right between the corpses of blackbirds and the 2 million dead fish in the Chesapeake Bay. [Via]

Where: 92 Street Y

Who Was There: Kevin Spacey, Annette Insdorf

Other Details: Carnies and rock and rollers hit Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park for night 2 of the Circus. Unlike the previous evening, no one rioted!  Good job everyone! Bands played along with performances by contortionists and stilt walkers to lukje-warm reviews. "Why was he just up there, like, DJing, with that girl just singing in front of him?" said one fan of Yeah Yeah Yeah's Nick Zinner. Village Voice's Chris Tarantino hilariously likened it to "a John Hughes-esque Battle of the Bands at Shermer High School." [Via]
