Sporting a brocade print blue suit, white shirt and slip-on loafers, Taron, 29, looked delighted to be joined by his former co-star as they posed for photos on the red carpet.

Other guests in attendance on Wednesday evening included former Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria, Late Late Show presenter James Corden and actresses Kerry Washington and Renée Zellweger.
