DUSTIN HOFFMAN not only plays a rouged and bewigged 18th century Parisian nose in "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," he was also a guest at the Chateau Marmont's tres exclusive dinner party Jan. 11 -- hosted by "Factory Girl" star Sienna Miller -- to launch Les Exclusifs de Chanel, a new collection of couture fragrances. 1.

A few of Rita Wilson's famous friends -- Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Sandra Oh, Arianna Huffington, Allison Janney, Nia Vardalos, Rob Reiner and Kate Capshaw -- showed up to see her in the new play "Distracted" at the Mark Taper Forum last Sunday. Her hubby, 1. Tom Hanks, did a quick paparazzi pose, and 2. Steven Spielberg stopped long enough to sign a few autographs on the way in. Fashion Week party people -- L.A.

In its first season without "ER," NBC is mounting two new medical shows. Neither focuses on doctors, however, which some may consider a relief. (I try not to focus on doctors myself.) "Trauma," which begins next week, is about EMTs in San Francisco; "Mercy," which begins tonight, follows a group of Jersey City nurses whose often messy private lives are interrupted regularly by their often thankless jobs. Haughty patient: "Nurses! What are you good for anyway?" Nurse Veronica: "Well, we do try to keep the doctors from killing you."
In true Hollywood form, several older series will be getting face lifts this fall with an infusion of new characters, big-name guest stars and plot twists. Former bad boys Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey Jr. are joining comedies, while Oscar-winning Sally Field will check into "ER." Though the presidential debates could shift some planned premieres, below is a look at what's in store for your favorite series.

Midway through watching the 1980s flashback comedy "Take Me Home Tonight," it hit us. Dan Fogler, Topher Grace's sidekick in the movie, has become this generation's Curtis Armstrong, the jowly, leering wingman to today's erstwhile young film leads. And it wasn't just the period setting that drove the connection home. Or the physical resemblance ? which is striking ? though Fogler, perhaps, does have a couple more ticks on the waistband. It's that Fogler, like his '80s-era "Revenge of the Nerds" predecessor, excels in playing lovable losers desperately on the make, guys who are utterly unaware that they're at the bottom of the food chain.
