When Halloween actually arrives, celebs go batsh!t. When the doorbell rings
and the kids go, "Trick or Treat," even Jack in the Box wears a costume-basically,
he paints his head beige, throws on a brunette wig and goes as Rosie O'Donnell.
As you step out onto the stage-blood-soaked red carpet at the end of the month, here

should take care of the blood part.
Jamarcus Russell: Phillip Rivers

Demi Moore : Rumer (her eldest
With skin so wrinkle-free from all the
Botox, all Demi has to do is throw on
one of Rumer's short dresses (they wear

been shagging. Dude, where's my car?
