The ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ premiere in Hollywood on Saturday was proof that it never rains in California — or at least proof that it never rains on a red carpet in California, thanks to those big ol’ tents they put up in a pinch.

Star Jack Black was joined by cast members Emily Blunt, Jason Segel and T.J. Miller outside Grauman’s Chinese Theater to launch the comedy, in which Black plays a travel writer bound for Bermuda who winds up on the island of Lilliput instead.


Black, accompanied by wife Tanya Haden, fittingly showed up in a T-shirt reading, ‘I see small people.’ Click the photo of him at right for more pictures from the red carpet.

Speaking of small people, the red carpet was loaded with younger actors, including Ryan Ochoa, Tucker Albrizzi, Jimmy Bennett, Zach Callison, Parker Contreras, Jordan Monaghan, Jadin Gould, Madison Leisle, Saige Ryan Campbell, Rachel Fox and Bella Thorne.

Also spotted: Elena Diaz, Corbin Bernsen, Sonia Rockwell, Gabriel Jarret, Tommy Davidson, Carla Ortiz, Romany Malco, Justin Price and socialite Barbara Davis, who was just seen at the after-party for the final ‘Larry King Live’ broadcast Thursday night.

‘Gulliver’s Travels,’ directed by Rob Letterman, opens Christmas Day.
