Where T.O. Watched the Oscars

Terrell Owens was at Elton John's annual Academy Award viewing party last night at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, where the (current? former?) Dallas Cowboys wide receiver wanted to see and be seen by those who might help him catch (and drop) his second career as an aspiring thespian. (Guests, during and after the ceremony, included Ben Kingsley, Nicole Kidman and the hosts of American Idol.) Because, apparenty, all it takes is one episode of a Flavor Flav sitcom, and next thing you know, ol' T.O.'s ready for his close-up, Mr. DeMille. As Owens told the USA Today, "I'm not a huge movie buff, but it makes me want to make the transition into acting. This is a good way to see some of these people up close and get an idea of what they do. I think I'd be good at it." Yes, yes he would.
