It's not White House Correspondents' Association Dinner weekend without some strange Hollywood-meets-D.C. interactions.

As party guests were heading to Atlantic owner David Bradley's Embassy Row home for cocktails Friday night, President Clinton was spotted taking a walk nearby with Secret Service.

At Cafe Milano on Friday night sat at one table: Press Secretary Jay Carney, ABC News President Ben Sherwood, George Stephanopoulos and his wife, Ali Wentworth and actor Michael J. Fox, who played a Stephanopoulos-like character in both "The American President" and "Spin City." George Lucas and Arianna Huffington were at another table, while members of the "House of Cards" cast also dined.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel chatted with the "Nashville" cast -- including Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere and Charles Esten -- at the Yahoo! News/ABC News/Univision pre-party.

The MSNBC after-party's cigar room attracted the likes of Sir Ian McKellen, "Glee" star Kevin McHale, screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and 'N Sync's JC Chasez, who hung out in one corner. We also spotted White House Senior Policy Advisor on Nutrition Sam Kass getting cozy with MSNBC's Alex Wagner.
