MANHATTAN — Actor Ed Norton gazed adoringly at "Felicity" star Keri Russell last night at a special screening of Norton's new film, "Leaves of Grass."

In the film, Norton plays twins — one an Ivy League professor who returns to his hometown in Oklahoma to investigate the apparent murder of his twin brother. The film was written and directed by Tim Blake Nelson (also in attendance), of "O Brother, Where Art Thou" fame.

Meanwhile in Midtown, Candice Bergen posed for photographers at the after party for the Broadway première of "Come Fly Away," a new musical that combines the music of Frank Sinatra with the choreography of Twyla Tharp.  Donald Trump, Tony Bennett, Edie Falco, Spike Lee, Kathy Lee Gifford, Jonathan Demme and Neil Diamond were also seen mingling at the Roseland Ballroom affair.

Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, co-hosted a cocktail party for LONDON show ROOMS, a design initiative intended to promote London fashion talent in New York City. Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann, fashion model and daughter of actress Isabella Rossellini, joined the 19-year-old Watson at the event, which was thrown at Pulino’s Bar and Pizzeria in Nolita.
