Like "Forrest Gump," which he co-produced, Steve Tisch has had a fortuitous career. At 48, the New York native has had a Hollywood run that started as Peter Guber's assistant at Columbia in 1971. Since going indie in 1976, his credits range from "Risky Business" (which launched Tom Cruise) to Kevin Costner's "The Postman." He's also executive producer of "American History X," starring Edward Norton.

Far be it for an NFL owner to sully the reputation of his star quarterback. It's just that, in the opinion of Giants co-owner Steve Tisch, quarterback Eli Manning has the poise under pressure of another New York icon: Captain "Sully" Sullenberger, who three years ago successfully ditched US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 people onboard. OK, so Manning isn't saving lives, and Tisch isn't even remotely equating what he has done to the true heroics of Sullenberger.

The Scene: The black-tie, if-we're-not-heirs-to Swifty-than-who-is? viewing party and post-telecast reception at Morton's hosted by Vanity Fair's Graydon Carter and "Forrest Gump" producer Steve Tisch. Here was a wildly eclectic range of talent, socialites and power brokers. "We wanted it to reflect the magazine," said Carter. "Washington, L.A., New York, Old Hollywood, New Hollywood, the whole thing."

I should have listened to my wife. She told me to wash my car. But I'd been on the road just about every weekend for three months, covering NFL games, and a carwash didn't register on my list of priorities. So the other day I wheezed up to the Beverly Hills Hotel in my one-headlight Volvo that's covered in dust and bird droppings, and filled with old newspapers, water bottles, my son's basketball, and -- disturbingly -- my daughter's collection of stripped-bare Barbie dolls.

Hit: With delicious irony, a seen-it-all, done-it-all Hollywood crowd passed over the footprints of Cecil B. DeMille and other late, great show people at Mann's Chinese Theater tosee an extravaganza staged by Isaac Mizrahi, a New York fashion designer, and his pack of supermodels (Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Veronica Webb). For final punch--ifyou don't count the faux snow that came down on the already cool crowd--there was k.d.

Richard Gere plays a ruthless New York collector, whose L.A. purchases include streetwalker Julia Roberts in Touchstone's "3000," filming locally in July.

Sweeney, Billy Zane and Harry Connick Jr. wing off next month to enlist in Warner Bros./Engima's "Memphis Belle."

In the latest instance of entertainment industry superstars joining forces to form filmmaking ventures, rock icon Mick Jagger and "Forrest Gump" co-producer Steve Tisch have formed a production company. The leader of the World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band closed the deal with one of the key players behind the best picture nominee two weeks ago. A few days earlier, Jagger's company, Jagged Films, set up shop in Tisch's Culver City offices.

When producer Steve Tisch was offered the chairmanship of AIDS Project Los Angeles last year, his first question was the most obvious. Why appoint a straight guy to one of the most high-profile positions in the gay community? "It seemed odd," Tisch said. "But I took some time to think about it and finally I accepted. I wanted to do it. The disease has certainly torn a path through my business." No one is questioning the wisdom of the offer, or the response.
