Steven Spielberg, Bruce Springsteen to cheer on daughters at horse show

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: The celebrity sighting will be uber-intense at the Hampton Classic horse show in Bridgehampton, NY at summer’s end – what insiders on the equestrian scene tell us is “the end of summer horsey hurrah!” Indeed. The 41st Annual Lake Placid Horse Show this month boasted proud pops including Steven Spielberg, cheering on daughter Destry, Bruce Springsteen rooting for daughter Jessica, and former CNN anchor-turned-aspiring politico Lou Dobbs out in support of daughter Hillary.

The famous fathers each hung in there for two hot weeks to behold the riding of their serious equestrian offspring, and all are likely to be at the Hampton Classic. While teens Darcy and Jessica competed in the junior rings, Hillary, who sang the national anthem twice at Lake Placid, competed against Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s daughter, Georgina, and a number of Olympic veterans. Now a member of the United States Equestrian Team’s Samsung Super League, the 22-year-old phenom just became the youngest horse-show rider to win a million dollars on the circuit, when she won the $30,000 Grant Prix at the Vermont Summer Festival, taking the title from an Olympic Gold Medalist, McLain Ward.

THAT’S SPOOKY: Guess this isn’t your grandma’s CIA anymore. The formerly clandestine organization is preparing to shoot a recruiting commercial (!) and looking for just the right actors to play agents. The female should be 27-33, according to casting notices. Ability to speak French, Russian or an Eastern European language a plus. She should be in shape and beautiful, with an intelligent, brooding air about her – a vivid presence. The “prototype is Valerie Plame to Angelina Jolie.” Yes, it really does say that. As for the male agent – they’re asking casting forces to “think James Bond” with actors that are in shape, tall, dark and handsome.
