's life isn't even an actor. He's. PGA Tour player Sergio Garcia. Thanks to a mutual acquaintance, the two met in Sin City, where he was playing the Las Vegas Invitational, held Oct. 8-12, and she was vacationing with her family.

And the actor didn't stop at handing out free tickets either. Cusack forked over his own money to buy everyone tickets to an Aerosmith concert and even arranged for an alligator swamp tour. But some castmates drew the line at going out to watch Hurricane Lili come ashore. Says actor Guy Torry: "We told him, 'You're on your own with this one.' "
