Cast of Takers: Michael Ealy, Hayden Christensen, producer Will Packer, T.I. and Jay Hernandez at Lagasse's Stadium at the Palazzo.

The Palazzo celebrated the Las Vegas premier of Takers Tuesday night at a packed Lagasse’s Stadium. The exclusive invitation-only event played host to several members of the Takers cast including Hayden Christensen, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Michael Ealy, Idris Elba, Jay Hernandez, director John Luessenhop and producer Will Packer.

The stadium was full of excited fans and talent all anxious to see the movie, which comes out in theaters Aug. 27. The red carpet outside of Lagasse’s Stadium was filled with fans as they patiently awaited the arrivals of the Takers cast.

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 canceled 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,” Pratt said. “It just looks so great.”

Christensen and Hernandez arrived to the after party a little earlier than the rest of the Takers cast and decided to test their luck on the casino tables. They were spotted playing blackjack on the casino floor of the Palazzo. “Didn’t do as well as we hoped, but it was definitely fun playing,” Hernandez said. “Now it¹s just time to relax and celebrate this awesome movie.”

Christensen, 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.

Michael Ealy had another reason to celebrate in Las Vegas. It was just announced that Ealy will star in a new show Common Law on the USA Network.

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., Ealy and Elba 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, Elba stayed on stage with DJ Cassidy and even gave a small rapping performance while on the tables. Floyd Mayweather Jr. soon joined Elba 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 after party at Lagasse’s Stadium and partied until around 2 a.m.

Before the event, the talent enjoyed dinner at Mario Batali’s Carnevino at the Palazzo. The group dined on filet mignon, chicken alla Cacciatora and for dessert the group savored seasonal gelati and sorbetti selection.
