Dreamgirls director Bill Condon and producer Larry Mark just poked their heads into the Orange Cafe and ducked out. I ran out and chased them down. Condon said he’d read my DaVinci pan earlier today, and noted I was bit kinder than most. They’re on their way to the DaVinci Code premiere and then to the party. (TV coverage of the red-carpet arrivals is on the flat screen as I write this.) This is piffle…not even a digression… but it’s fun to see friends and familiar faces wherever you turn.
