British Royals Hollywood Party

HollywoodNews.com: There’s a long list of Hollywood players involved in the royal weekend starting tonight. Mostly, it’s all about BAFTA/LA’s Brits to Watch, who will all be introduced to Prince William and Kate Middleton. This is a real score for BAFTA/LA.

But the list is largely of fine actors etc who are mostly unknown to Americans. So add Stephen Moyer, the head vampire from “True Blood.” Moyer wasn’t one of the Brits to Watch since he’s already a star, but I’m told HBO got him in there because he’s hot and everyone wants to meet him.

Kate Middleton had best wear a high collar when she’s around him! Otherwise, the lists of guests come from the UK Daily Mail and E! Online’s Marc Malkin, much of whose material then showed up as an “exclusive” in the Hollywood Reporter. The guests named for the various events–the BAFTA dinner and another at producer Steven Tisch‘s estate for the Tusk Trust evidently include Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, studio chiefs — like Harvey Weinstein, who the Oscar winning “King’s Speech” — galore, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, and so on.

Mind you, all these celebs who aren’t Brits to Watch–i.e. the big names–are paying for the honor of meeting the royal couple. But it’s all for charity.
