“Oblivion” star, Tom Cruise, gets a front row seat at Staples, apparently oblivious that he was being checked out by David Beckham.
Becks was spotted at Staples with his Spice Girl-cum-wife Victoria. Beckham just retired from playing soccer on May 18 over in France, so it seems he has plenty of time to spend. And where does he go? Back to L.A., of course.
“Hey, weren’t you that guy that Dan Moriarty embarrassed in an interview back in the Blues series.”
“No, that was David Schwimmer. Leave me alone, kid.”
It seems The Beibs was in attendance as well. Uh, no. At least one fan was excited to see the Pop Tart.
I guess Eric Stonestreet’s a big fan.
“Modern Family” star Kings’ supporter Eric Stonestreet was equally appalled at the “embellishing” call on Jonathan Quick.
Wanna know who to thank for Eric Cartman being a Kings fan? The dude on the right is Trey Parker, co-creator of “South Park” and “The Book of Mormon.” Good to finally see Jonathan Bernier this postseason.
Finally, the guy in front of reggae/alt-rocker Matisyahu apparently smelt what he dealt.
A night after the Screen Actors Guild, actress Amanda Seyfried went to Monday night’s Kings game with actor/Hockerazzi mainstay Kevin Connolly.
Keep in mind that Amanda, who was deemed among the most beautiful of the Beautiful People at the SAG Awards, also stepped out after the awards ceremony wearing a totally sheer dress. It seems Kevin decided to get Amanda to slip into something a little more comfortable: a Dustin Brown jersey.
Amanda’s working that jersey (and seems really worried about the Kings’ power play.) There were rumblings at the SAGs that Amanda wore an identical dress as Jennifer Lawrence. So what better way to stand out than wear a jersey worn by half of Staples. I kid! Sticktap to the future Linda Lovelace, however, at least she WORE something Kings related (unlike many stars who come to the games).
KISS frontman Gene Simmons made his return to Staples Center alongside his Canuck wife Shannon Tweed and his daughter Sophie. Turns out Sophie is almost a bigger hockey fan than her mom. After the game, Shannon politely congratulated the Kings on their shootout win. Sophie sadly ate a banana.
Actor/blogger/diehard Kings fan Wil Wheaton went to the game with his wife, Anne. Now Wheaton is a true fan because he, like many other Kings fans, was in awe of seeing the actual Stanley Cup banner high in the rafters of Staples.
That’s a Stanley Cup Champion banner. In my hometown arena. *wilflail.gif* imgur.com/8RJAx6v
But also, as a “champion of geek culture,” he was NO problem posing with Bailey during the game, wearing an old school Kings jersey. That’s why I’ve got noting but R-E-S-P-E-C-T for Wil.
Finally, another Canucklehead fan, Cory Monteith, was in the house. Cory was also at the SAG Awards with his girlfriend from Glee and in real life, Lea Michele. Apparently he couldn’t convince her to come to Monday’s game. So he sat on the aisle, tweeting back and forth with other Canuck fans who saw him on TSN.
All summer long on my workout playlist, along with My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome to the Black Parade” and The Brigg’s “This is L.A.” was Ice Cube’s “Today Was A Good Day.” The legendary hip hop icon directed an ESPN special called “Straight Outta L.A.” about what it means to be a sports fan in Los Angeles, and he included a segment about how the Kings were inspired by the Raiders when they designed their jerseys. Cube is all about representing Los Angeles, so he has my respect.
Ice Cube and his family were there back in June when the Kings won the Stanley Cup, so it makes sense they would return to see the banner raising. I especialy dig the fact that his son not only is rocking a black jersey, but mismatched purple and…, er, forum gold and blue shoes.
But Cube, the least you could’ve done was rock an old school Kings script hat like back in the day. Guess you let Kimberly wear it.
Actress Alyssa Milano was in attendance with Baby Milo. She was all over the TV when they cut away from the action to the celebs in the crowd during the playoffs. Baby Milo was rocking a Kings away jersey, while Mom donned all black. I’ll give Alyssa credit, especially since she seems so willing to pose with fellow Kings fans.
Moments after this pic was snapped, she was quickly shuttled away from the line in Team LA to a private register to check out. Not sure if some face-painted freak had anything to do with that.
Director/writer/fellow podcaster Kevin Smith is an unabashed hockey fan, and took in the game with his wife, Jenn. He includes some kind of hockey reference in many of his movies, and now is currently developing a hockey miniseries called Hit Somebody. Smith, who is from New Jersey, is a die-hard Devils fans. but when I saw this pic, wearing all black, I thought maybe all his years on the Left Coast has left an impression on him. Until he snapped a pic on Instagram of his shoes.
Well played, sir.
Actor Colin Hanks may be the son of one of America’s greatest actors, but he’s considered the bigger Kings fan in his house. Even though the old man was featured on the Kiss Cam with his lovely wife, Rita Wilson. Unlike many stars in attendance, Colin actually sported a Kings hat. Good for you, sir.
Matthew Perry was also in attendance, albeit from the safety of a suite. Not sure if the view is better, but I know the food and booze service is better. The star of NBC’s “Friends” and new show “Go On” hosted a Stanley Cup party for Anze Kopitar earlier this summer, which had to have been surreal to the Slovenian Stunner.
Sopranos star and Kings diehard James Gandolfini, who I recently saw in the war movie Zero Dark Thirty, was back in his seats in the lower bowl to witness history. I got nothing but love for Gandolfini who, like Kevin Smith, grew up in Jersey. But it’s apparent the Kings have his attention over the Beast from Back East.
Hilary Duff and her husband, retired player MIke Comrie wear also in attendance. Not sure if Duff had called Alyssa Milano on what was the appropriate hair style to wear for a day game, but apparently up in a bun is the industry standard.
Finally here’s Ali Larter with her husband, actor Hayes MacArthur. As you can see, MacArthur is a Blackhawks fan, and has forced his wife to wear a Blackhawks hat.
Spotted at Game 4 was actor Ryan O’Neal (Love Story and Fox’s Bones), who recently came forward to talk about his fight with Stage 2 prostate cancer. Seeing Ryan at Staples is inspiring, showing that no one should be afraid of continuing to live your life while fighting for your life. Ryan was married to actress Farrah Fawcett, who died of cancer in 2009.
The ridiculously talented Trey Parker (South Park, Book of Mormon) had a front row view of Game 4. Parker’s creation, Eric Cartman, has been a huge Kings fan for years, and helps get Staples Center geeked up for the games.
The ridiculously god-looking Matthew Perry (Friends, Studio 60) was spotted once again at Staples. He had tweeted out a shot from Sunday’s Game 3, but I couldn’t find any images of him that night. Mr. Bing has recently been featured on my wife’s favorite show, The Good Wife.
Dean McDermott and Tori Spelling also took in the game Wednesday. Earlier this week, Dylan told CeleBuzz the reason why Tori got pregnant five months after giving birth was she’s “just super-fertile.” No word if Tori got knocked up during the game, although looking at her reaction, I seriously doubt it.
Actor Eric Stonestreet (Modern Family) made a second appearance this postseason at Staples. Stonestreet, who is “openly straight” recently won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor. His openly-gay co-star, Mitchell Pritchett, who plays his partner on the show, has jokingly pointed out Stonestreet is “gay-for-pay.” I just thought that was funny.
Finally, any Angelino should recognize Mary Hart and her husband Burt Sugarman. Hard to believe it’s almost been a year since Mary stood on the set of Entertainment Tonight. Good to see her out in support of her hometown hockey club.
Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa were spotted at the game with their kids.
Will Ferrell was interviewed during the game by Scott Oake.
David Beckham and his beautiful wife Victoria were in attendance with their beautiful children.
Vanessa and Kobe Bryant brought their kids to watch the action between the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings in Game Three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.
David and Victoria Beckham also brought their kids to Staples, who wear rocking Dustin Brown jerseys.
Mr. Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell was spotted drinking a Bud and enjoying the game. He was on the edge of his seat in the third period, looking pretty anxious.
Vanessa Bryant smiles at Kobe during Game 3. Kobe was asked by Fox Sports’ Patrick O’Neal about his impressions of the game. He was apparently impressed by the hitting, and wished they had that in the NBA. Hey Kobe, ask Metta World Peace (a.k.a. Ron Artest) how that worked out…
Galaxy star and Beckham’s teammate Landon Donovan was spotted in the crowd, Is that Mike Alteri, the Kings’ vice president of communications?
Modern family star Eric Stonestreet gives a thumbs up to the action on the ice.
Glee star Cory Monteith had a busy weekend. He was apparently out at Coachella with his wicked hot girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele on Saturday. The Canadian made it back to Staples for Game 3.
Earlier Tuesday, the Commander-In-Chief of Hockeywood, Tom Hanks, tweeted his ongoing support for the L.A. Kings while throwing the Detroit Red Wings under the bus. Good for you, sir! Now, if we can get you into a jersey. My original offer still stands, Hanx.
The Canucks have those annoying Green Men, Red Wings has the octopus and the Panthers used to have those rats (back when they were good).
In Hockeywood, we have two-time Academy Award-winning actor Tom Hanks. Advantage Los Angeles.
Vancouver, you can keep you creepily Lycra-wrapped Green Men. I’ll take the star power of the one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, tankyouveddymuch.
Hanks, who also signs off his Tweets as “Hanx,” made an appearance at Staples Center Tuesday night for the second time this season, and the Kings have won both times. Coincidence? I think not. His adorable wife, Rita Wilson, was not in attendance. (She’s preparing to drop an album in May.)
Unlike other Hollywood stars who have showed up and rooted for the other teams (I’m looking at you, Vince Vaughn), Mr. Hanks actually roots for the home team! Check it!
You know what that means, Hanx? You gotta show up the rest of the way! It’s predetermined, your appearance at Staples was no fluke. You have become our unofficial mascot. (Which I think won’t faze Bailey) Next time, though, we’ll need you in a jersey. I’ve got a nice old-school jersey for you if you don’t have one.
Welcome to Hockeywood, Tom Hanks! We’ll see you next home game! When the Kings win the Cup, you can pull a Cuba Gooding Jr. and show up in the locker room. (We’ll never forget, Cuba. NEVER!!!)
Teen singer/songwriter/actor Justin Bieber was spotted at Staples Center Tuesday rocking a Kings hat while taking in the game against the New Jersey Devils. Weird thing is, The Biebs is supposedly a Maple Leafs fan, being from Canada and all. But he was spotted with his girlfriend Selena Gomez two days ago in Winnipeg Manitoba Canada, sporting Jets jerseys.
But I’ll let that pass, since he appears to be wearing several “Love for Lokomotiv” bands
that the players’ wives, girlfriends have been selling to raise money for the families and children of the KHL team that died tragically this summer. Kid has his priorities straight.
