AARP is rolling out the red carpet for its Life@50+ Expo this weekend at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center — and it will get a little help doing it from some familiar faces. Funnyman Billy Crystal and Oscar- and Grammy-winning musician Paul Williams both are scheduled to attend as part of the weekend’s Movies For Grownups sidebar event.
Crystal, the nine-time Oscar host and star of the forthcoming Twentieth Century Fox comedy “Parental Guidance,” will walk the red carpet in support of his film with costars Bailee Madison, Joshua Rush, Kyle Harrison Breitkopf and director Andy Fickman. Crystal and Fickman will also introduce a pre-release screening of the film Friday evening (Sept. 21).
5:30 p.m. – “Parental Guidance” pre-release screening. Starring Hollywood icons Billy Crystal, Bette Midler, Marisa Tomei and Tom Everett Scott, this is the story of an old-school grandfather who meets his match when he and his eager-to-please wife agree to babysit their three grandkids when their type-A helicopter parents go away for work
