On April 30th, after his performance in The Normal Heart, Lee Pace and friend, Matt Bomer, headed to the Hiro Ballroom at The Maritime Hotel. The occasion? The 10th Annual Spring Fling, hosted by celebrity hairstylist, Harry Josh. The party is a happening place for many big-name stars. Others in attendance included Fergie, Gisele Bundchen, Eva Mendes, Will Smith, Jay-Z, Andrew Garfield, Leonardo DiCaprio (with friend, Lukas Haas), Jessica Biel, Ashley Olsen, Mickey Rourke, and The Normal Heart co-star, Luke Macfarlane. All according to Just Jared.
If pictures pop up, I’ll be sure to post them as soon as possible.
Some celebrities checked out The Normal Heart last night, including Matt Bomer, Valerie Harper, and Dr. Ruth. (I also saw Anna Wintour, but she’s not pictured.) Matt Bomer and Lee Pace went to the same high school together, and it looks like they’re still good friends. A friend of mine who was sitting behind Matt during the show said he was thoroughly enjoying himself whenever Lee appeared onstage for a comedic scene. They also left the stage door together, and then left the premises in the same car (along with Ellen Barkin).
Thank you to Claudia at Precious Stone: Lisa Edelstein for the HQ images!
Photos are finally surfacing of Lee Pace at his Broadway opening of The Normal Heart, which happened yesterday evening. Others at the opening after-party included fellow castmates of the play, along with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, Julianna Margulies, Kelly Ripa, Melissa Etheridge, Nathan Lane, Sarah Jessica Parker, Vanessa Redgrave, Victor Garber, and many others. In the first set of albums are pictures of The Normal Heart cast taking their bows after opening, while the second album features the cast and crew at the after-party.
Edit: Many more pictures have been added to both albums, many of which are HQ. Enjoy!
After the April 23rd performance of The Normal Heart, gay rights pioneer Billie Jean King met up with the cast. A brief photo session was held thereafter. King is known as being the first openly gay female professional athlete, and since coming out in 1981 she has retained her activism within the LGBT community; she currently serves on the boards for both Women’s Sports Foundation and the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Check out new pictures in the gallery, one of which features this magnificent woman.
Broadway.com has posted a couple of pictures from The Normal Heart‘s first night of previews. A couple of pictures include Lee Pace alongside those involved with the production, such as Jim Parsons, John Benjamin Hickey, and playwright Larry Kramer. David Furnish – president of the Elton John AIDS Foundation – is also featured. Both pictures both been added to the gallery.
Lee Pace Odyssey is also looking for fan written reviews of the play to be posted as a news report. If you’ve seen a performance, please submit your experience; photos of Lee at the stagedoor are welcome as well. LPO will fully credit you if your review is used.
Edit: I’ve added more pictures from TNH’s premiere preview. Thanks to munis for the heads up!
On April 4th, Lee Pace spent his evening at the Henry’s Crime after-party, along with stars such as James Caan, Keanu Reeves, and Vera Farmiga.

Many thanks to Nicky at Johnny Depp Online for the HQ picture!
The New York premiere for Ceremony – Lee Pace’s latest film – took place at the Angelika Film Center earlier this evening, April 5th. He was accompanied by director Max Winkler and co-stars, Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano. Others at the event included Alexa Chung, Edward Burns, and Noah Baumbach. If any more pictures surface, I’ll add them to the gallery as soon as possible. WWD reported about the after-party, in which Lee is briefly mentioned:
The reclusive Thurman slunk over to an elevated booth overlooking the dance floor, where she was joined by Angarano, Pace, and apparent good friend Russell Simmons, who spent most of the evening kissing her cheek or praising her film. When Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” came on, Pace, Thurman and Simmons all hopped to their feet to shimmy to the chorus, before settling back down in the booth, with Pace scooting off to swipe spare bottles of spirits from neighboring tables.
Many thanks to Bee at 100% Novak Djokovic for the HQ pictures!
Phew! I have finally worked on the gallery some more, replacing many images with high-quality versions. All “Pushing Daisies” stills and promo shots are now HQ! Some pictures from public appearances throughout the years have also been upgraded. Additionally, I’ve also added an old photo shoot (above). I ask that you please do not re-post any portion of this update. If you’d like to see the full list of updated albums, see below:
Former Spice Girl and current fashionista, Victoria Beckham, hosted a glamorous party at the Minetta Tavern on Monday night in honor of Allure’s editor-in-chief, Linda Wells. It was a celebration of her 20th anniversary of being at the magazine. Among those who were at the bash include January Jones, Jennifer Carpenter, Keifer Sutherland, and our very own Lee Pace. He was seen chatting with model Paulina Porizkova and her husband of 20 years, Ric Ocasek of The Cars fame. Here’s what WWD had to say about Lee making an appearance at the event:
Lee Pace recently arrived back in New York and was eager to hear about what he’d been missing, asking his tablemates for the “good fashion things to go” to over the next few days.
