Hollywood partied geek style at Comic-Con. On July 21, Robert Rodriguez mingled among hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of Frank Frazetta paintings at his Hard Rock Hotel party, while Taylor Lautner, Kellan Lutz and Rachel Nichols confabbed at Summit's rooftop soiree where Games of Thrones' Peter Dinklage was seen sitting on women's laps. Later, Jon Favreau was the surprise DJ at an anti-rooftop party thrown by JoBlo.com, Latino Review and producer Daniel Alter in the Sway Lounge. ICM threw a chill afternoon social behind the Convention Center on July 22, and UTA partied into the night at Bar Basic. Meanwhile, TV stars and comic book A-listers hung out on opposite sides of Hard Rock's rooftop bar Float at the Warner Bros. TV/DC Entertainment bash, which featured "distracting and fascinating painted naked ladies," as Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec noted. July 23's Cowboys & Aliens premiere was a blowout of epic proportions, though the stars and Universal execs ditched the afterparty for their own private celebration at the Andaz hotel.  -- Borys Kit
