Celebs go 'European' at pic preem

LAS VEGAS — Guests strolled a faux-leopard carpet Saturday at Col’s “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo” preem at the Palms Casino Resort.

After-party celebrants feasted on food resembling body parts, a recurring theme in the raucous pic.

To prep for his Bigalow reprise, Rob Schneider said: “I had to lose my paunch and get back on the StairMaster. I had my chest hair waxed.”

Schneider’s co-star Eddie Griffin said signing on for the sequel was a no-brainer. “I hadn’t seen Rob in five years,” said Griffin, who added that the pair’s onscreen chemistry was the driving factor in his decision.

Revelers included helmer Mike Bigelow, producer Adam Sandler, Sony’s Geoff Ammer and Col’s Jonathan Kadin.
