Outtakes from the Playboy Red Carpet

Scattered shots here on sights and sounds at Playboy’s Super Bowl party on Friday night:

Actor/dreamboat Scott Wolf: Seemed genuinely touched when I complimented his performance in the ’90s flick Go.

Celeb chef Guy Fieri: Said he planned to eat at The Tamale Place on Saturday.

R&B singer Ne-Yo: I asked, “What are you doing tonight?” He answered, “The one in the red.”

Rockers The All-American Rejects: The Mickey Mouse T-shirt was probably supposed to be ironic.

2010 NFL rushing champ Arian Foster: Looked fab in green.

Star Carolina Panthers running-back tandem DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart (aka “Double Trouble”): Williams said he was grabbing quick bites at Jimmy Johns and Noodles & Company.

St. Louis Rams power runner Steven Jackson: Women in the photo didn’t know who he was, but assumed he was famous.
