The stars of Showtime, the CW, and CBS came together at their TCA party in Pasadena last night. The Huntington Library was bursting with celebrities from all three networks who mixed and mingled at the gorgeous venue. Ashlee Simpson-Wentz looked perfectly petite in her sexy dress as she told us about how well-behaved Bronx is these days. Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth both had shows to promote, though Peter was also happy to chat about feeling like Robert Pattinson at Twi-Con and heading back to work in Vancouver today!
Weeds hottie Hunter Parrish was happy to joke around about not having any sexy scenes this week though admitted that his comments about High School Musical were totally blown out of proportion: "You know what's funny? I talked about that three years ago when it was relevant and now that it's not relevant at all everyone's talking about it." AnnaLynne McCord is always a blast to chat with and she was so excited to dish on the new season and her desires for a Gossip Girl crossover. Check out all the quotes after the jump and more coming soon!

The video after the jump is great — very funny in a serial-murderer-gently-holding-a-baby kind of way. Before that, though, some highlights from Thursday's panel:

Katie Holmes hit the stage to perform in All My Sons on Broadway last night, but this time it was different. It was the show's official opening night and Katie's smile was bigger than ever as she took her bow and posed outside after the play. Of course, Tom Cruise was there to support his wife and I'm sure found time to gush even more about her performance at the after party. The only damper on the evening was the protesters against Scientology out to make a scene. After last night's big show, the first reviews are out and while they're a mixed bag for Katie and the production in general, it's a pretty big accomplishment for the actress. Congrats to Katie who deserves every standing ovation she gets.

John Lithgow and Katie Holmes stood outside the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre where they smiled and waved to fans.... and protesters. While anti-Scientology protesters held signs, wore masks and chanted "Free Katie," Tom headed inside to watch his wife in the preview performance for All My Sons. Inside the theater the audience welcomed Cruise who posed for pictures, signed autographs and hugged his old costar Dustin Hoffman who was seated a few rows away. Katie looked beautiful in a dress and a wig on stage but more importantly she apparently held her own with theater veterans like John, Dianne Wiest and Patrick Wilson. The crowd rose to their feet twice and upon her exit from the theater Katie was greeted by congrats from fans.
