The Insider


Published:

Secretly Canadian: Indie supergroup Mister Heavenly is getting more press lately for its hired-gun bass player than for the music it’s making. The band tapped actor Michael Cera (Juno, Arrested Development) to play bass on their recent West Coast tour. They noshed at Starlite prior to their show at the Casbah, where Cera was seen gingerly sipping white wine and acting polite and gracious — or as our spy put it, “so Canadian.”

GTL at RBI:
In town for VH1 Divas Salute the Troops, newlywed pop star Katy Perry and reality guido Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of Jersey Shore were both spotted at North County’s posh Rancho Bernardo Inn. ­Sources say “The Sitch” acted mellower than expected while lunching at the hotel, but later the eight-pack-wielding wonder was back to his old tricks while partying at Gaslamp nightclub Fluxx, where he downed shots of Patrón and enjoyed a swarm of female fans around his VIP table.

Strange bedfellows: What were funnymen Vince Vaughn and Kevin James doing sharing sleeping quarters with ex-prez George W. Bush? Okay, they weren’t exactly bunkmates, but the three did all crash at downtown’s historic U.S. Grant Hotel on the same night, November 18.
