Playing the Field: Matt Barnes is arrested and Paulina Gretzky makes a cameo

Paulina Gretzky is an East Coast gal thanks to Matt Barnes look-a-like Peter Dante.

In the least surprising arrest of the past month, former Lakers small forward Matt Barnes was tossed in the clink Monday night for an outstanding traffic warrant. The man-with-the-neck-tattoo (wonderful film) then proceeded to allegedly cuss out the officers making the arrest.

Pretty routine stuff here. Nothing to see.

That is until Barnes flashed an all-timer mug shot smile. Go ahead and call it the reverse Nolte if you like.





But there is a maddening aspect to Barnes' reverse Nolte. I just couldn't figure out where I had seen that grin before. I slaved over this for minutes and minutes and a few more seconds until I came back to the one man that everything finally comes back to:

Peter Dante.

What, not familiar with Dante's work? He's the guy whose name you don't know that's been in every bad Adam Sandler mail-in of the past 15 years. Everyone at once ... "oh, THAT guy."

Yup, THAT guy.



While I initially want to hate Dante, it's really difficult to bash someone whose biggest role to date was that of the aptly named "Peter" in "Little Nicky." A man has to eat.

Plus Dante, a West Hartford, Conn. native, recently brought Paulina Gretzky to the East Coast (he's dating her hot friend ... or something like that) to take in a Red Sox game and, of course, go swimming (as seen above)! Fun for all!



Grappling with ethics


Not a good overall night for World Wrestling Entertainment Monday. First, its giant screen/entrance ramp caught on fire due to pyrotechnics right before the show began.



Oh, and then some wrestling manager named "A.W." made a timely Kobe Bryant rape joke.

Sadly, WWE apologized for both incidents. If Vince McMahon were still fully in charge, and not his half-wit daughter Stephanie, there would have been no apologies. Just belly laughs on top of belly laughs on top of belly laughs.
