‘Scoundrels’ night out

Laffer bows in Gotham

NEW YORK Billy Bob Thornton was much friendlier at the “School for Scoundrels” preem in Gotham on Sept. 25 than the sleaze he plays in the pic: He even let fans snap posed pics with him in the lobby of the Time Warner Center, where the preem’s after-party went down at the Stone Rose.

Pic unspooled at the nearby AMC Loews Lincoln Square, where stars Jacinda Barrett and Sarah Silverman schmoozed with helmer Todd Philips, and the Weinstein Co.’s Bob and Harvey Weinstein.

Bob Weinstein said he knew Philips was the man for the job as soon as he pitched his take on the remake of the 1960’s Brit pic.
