Stars shine at Mohegan Sun

Celebs Turn Out For Mohegan Sun Casino Opening GalaTelevision stars got a chance to show off some of their other talents Saturday, from poker to fiddlin', as part of the Mohegan Sun's weekend gala for its new Casino of the Wind.

Tracy Morgan of "30 Rock" showcased his poker expertise with a straight flush on the one of his first hands, while James Denton of "Desperate Housewives" fame did his Tennessee roots proud with some standing-ovation-worthy guitar playing.

"I'm from Nashville, so pluckin' just comes naturally," said Denton, who, with the rest of The Band From TV, wowed the crowds at two shows with their singing and musical expertise.

Jessica Szohr and Matthew Settle from "Gossip Girl," married couple Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin--who both did gigs on "Dancing With The Stars"--pro wrestler and "Dancing With the Stars" alum Stacy Keibler, along with Connecticut native Becki Newton from "Ugly Betty," all juggled red-carpet and VIP duties Saturday with just hanging out with the regular folks.
