Red carpet war of words

Dan Patrick assess the 'Just Go With It' cast

Dan Patrick has spent the bulk of his career reporting on competitions for the likes of CNN and ESPN, but his expert judgments went unwanted at Tuesday’s preem of Columbia’s “Just Go With It.”

Patrick plays the judge of a hula contest in the Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston comedy, and during filming he says he was quite impressed with bit player Nicole Kidman. “If you see Kidman, Kidman is an athlete,” he said outside Ziegfeld’s, referring to the hula competish with Aniston.

Helmer Dennis Dugan found Patrick’s remarks ill-advised. “If I were Dan, I wouldn’t say that when Jennifer Aniston comes walking by because she’ll take Dan down,” he quipped. “Jennifer Aniston is way tougher than Dan Patrick.”

As the hula contest was filmed, another competition of sorts transpired on set in the form of a swear jar. Again Patrick offered his insights, identifying the biggest culprit. “I think Dave Matthews,” he said. “Dave Matthews – potty mouth.”

“He’s just saying that,” Matthews countered. “Dan Patrick is a filthy pig. He’s the filthiest pig I ever met in my life and that’s saying a lot. Seriously, he is a filthy pig.”
