Our pal Gena was at the John C. Reilly/Dewey Cox thing yesterday (where she took the picture above and a hundred others), and she tells us Reilly-as-Cox was amazing, "never breaking character and ad libbing with the best of them, sweating like a rock star and gyrating like one, too." He also busted out a cover of Amy Winehouse's "Rehab," which we want to hear so very badly. She adds, "The band was remarkably tight and well rehearsed and we left the show smiling and completely flabbergasted that a fake band could not only be so good, but actually stun us with their musicianship. The limited tour still has a few stops left so if you have friends in those towns, tell them they pretty much need to be there. " Anybody have video?

More snow? Probably.

Drew Peterson is afraid he'll never find another date. Just another unfortunate side effect of being the world's most guilty-seeming person.
