‘OC’ bash benefits Russians

Glossy skein's DVD party aids terror victims

Sunday night at Tokio, Chris Weitz hosted a benefit bash for the victims of the Russian school massacre that also, strangely enough, served as Warner’s DVD launch party for one of TV’s glossiest sudsers, “The OC.”

“Like the rest of you, when I think ‘The OC,’ I think international hostage crisis,” Weitz joked to the crowd.

In truth, the producer-helmer first contacted the Intl. Foundation of Terror Act Victims online, then suggested the benefit to Russian emigre and Hollywood Life publisher Anne Volokh, who already had the DVD bash in the works.

“It’s random, but in the best way,” Weitz said, before cheerfully admitting to using the skein’s “reflected glamour” for the benefit.

Heather Graham and Elara Diamonds also co-hosted the party at the club Weitz and his brother Paul . On hand: skein’s Mischa Barton and Rachel Bilson, Topher Grace, Ginnifer Goodwin, Laura Harring and Donald Faison.
