Stephanie Pratt from The Hills, joined the cast on the Red Carpet and in the party before heading to a late dinner. The reality star was so excited about the TAKERS movie that she actually cancelled her plans just so she could make the premier.

“I want to see this movie so bad. It has been on my radar to see, “Stephanie said. “It just looks so great. ”

Hayden and Jay arrived to the after party a little early than the rest of the TAKERS cast and decided to test their luck on the casino tables as they were spotted playing blackjack on the casino floor of The Palazzo.

Hayden, who has been in the media buzz after his engagement to Rachel Bilson ended, was quiet most of the night. The Jumper star spent majority of his evening talking with close friends at a private table.

T.I. arrived to The Palazzo to a welcoming fan base ready to greet him.

“I love the fact that we are here in Vegas to celebrate the TAKERS,” T.I. said. “We have so much to celebrate right now and this is the perfect place to do it.”

T.I. made sure not to disappoint as he immediately took reigns of the party upon his arrival.

Looking for some extra sizzle T.I., Michael, and Idris decided to take the party into their own hands hoping on stage alongside the infamous DJ Cassidy on the turntables.

T.I. joked on the microphone. “We all need to let our hair loose and start getting this place popping.”

With the crowd eating out of his hand T.I. wasted no time telling everyone to support his clothing brand AKOO (“A King of Oneself”).

While T.I. left the stage to join his large entourage, Idris stayed on stage with DJ Cassidy and even gave a small rapping performance while on the tables.

Floyd Mayweather was not to miss the premiere after party and soon joined Idris at the bash.

Specialty cocktails were served by Remy Martin V.S.O.P including “The Ghost” named after T.I.’s character in the movie. T.I. recently announced that he is the Global Creative Consultant to Rémy Martin Cognac. Kettle One Oranje also created a delicious specialty drink for the party called “The Breeze”.

The stars stayed to enjoy the TAKERS premiere after party at Lagasse’s Stadium and partied until around 2 am.

Before the event, the talent enjoyed dinner at Mario Batali’s Carnevino at The Palazzo which included Filet Mignon, Chicken “Alla Cacciatora” and for dessert the group savored seasonal gelati and sorbetti selection.
