‘Gigolo’ goes fishing

DJ Big Boy gets in touch with his feminine side

In the zany spirit of the Disney’s “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” topliner Rob Schneider stood in front of a fish tank at the premiere party Thursday night on the 23rd floor of Center West in Westwood and said: “Every guy sees himself somewhere between a fish-tank cleaner and a gigolo!”

Nearby, Disney co-prexy Todd Garner, celebrating his birthday, beamed: “The movie has never played better.” KPWR/Power 106 DJ Big Boy, who plays a transvestite, said: “The part really touched my feminine sides. Everyone should go there.”

Waiting to go there were Disney’s Dick Cook, Joe Roth and Nina Jacobson, pic’s director Mike Mitchell, executive producer Adam Sandler, cast members Arija Bareikis, Oded Fehr, William Forsythe, Jacqueline Obradors, Bree Turner, Karlee Holden, Eddie Griffin (replete with spiked hair) and scribe Harris Goldberg, with guests Clint Eastwood’s daughter Alison, David Spade, Jerry O’Connell and Martin Landau.
