Vapiano Hosted the New York Premiere of The Extra Man last night at Village East Cinema and the subsequent after party at Vapiano, New York, welcoming the movie's stars Katie Holmes, Paul Dano and Kevin Kline. A sophisticated and moving comedy from Bob Pulchini and Shari Springer-Berman, the Academy Award nominated writer/directors of American Splendor, The Extra Man follows Louis Ives (Paul Dano), a lonely dreamer who fancies himself the hero of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. When a deeply embarrassing incident forces him to leave his job at an exclusive Princeton prep school, Louis heads to New York City to make a fresh start. He quickly finds a nine-to-five job at an environmental magazine, where he encounters an entrancing, green-obsessed co-worker Mary (Katie Holmes). But it's Louis' new home life that really sparks his imagination. He rents a room in the ramshackle apartment of Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric but brilliant playwright. The movie opens July 30th and others in attendance included Cody Horn, Nicole Trunfio, Ryan Leslie, Sean Lennon, Stephanie Pratt, Byrdie Bell, Doutzen Kroes and Cynthia Rowley.
