Sports devotees aren’t the only ones descending upon Super Bowl in Indianapolis this weekend: Hollywood has touched down to party.

Avid football fan Joe Manganiello suited up for GQ magazine’s annual pre-party on Friday, the ‘True Blood’ werewolf enjoying the company of big-name athletes, actors and personalities.

David Arquette joked around with Steelers wide receiver Hines Wards while Andy Roddick escorted his lady Brooklyn Decker through the bash, held at downtown Indy industrial space The Stultz.

‘The Voice’ judge and rocker Adam Levine chatted up mag publisher Chris Mitchell as Terrell Owens, Troy Aikman and Patriots player Niko Koutouvides circulated around ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews.


‘Dancing With the Stars’ winner J.R. Martinez made a showing as did Mike Epps, the Roots and Peter Berg. LL Cool J served up a performance as Patron cocktails pumped through the crowd.

Over at Indy’s pop-up Bud Light Hotel, Chris Evans charmed several bunnies at Playboy’s bash, sipping Ciroc and taking in a set from Ne-Yo.
