SoFla is star-struck. Our heads snap collectively towards every blinged-out entourage in hope of catching a glimpse of whoevers at its nucleus. So when one of the stars thats struck us the hardest Gary Sinise comes to town, expect everyone you know to flock. Friday night the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival is throwing a multi-faceted event in Sinises honor. Theres a cocktail party/gala/to-do at the Signature Grand (6900 SR 84, Davie), where you can attempt to corrupt Sinise with your mastery of the shoulder lean, and an Inside the Actors Studio style Q&A with him at the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Center (3100 Ray Ferrero Jr. Blvd., Fort Lauderdale), so do your best James Lipton impression when asking Gary how he channeled a legless lieutenant for his character in Forrest Gump. The whole thing is open to the public and reasonably priced at a mere $30 for both. The Q&A starts at 7:30 p.m. on the Nova campus, then be part of the entourage (finally!) and head to the after-party at the Signature Grand. Visit www.fliff.com.
