Postcard from Sundance: Actors stop by and Jason Mraz sings

The CNN team got an early start at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday with set up and the first live interview with David Oyelowo, one of the stars of “Red Tails."

Before he was interviewed by Kyra Phillips, the actor talked about the time he spent in Alabama screening the movie as well as how honored he was to be able to meet some of the actual men who flew the jets in World War II.

6:15 p.m.: Sitting in the Film Lounge listening to Kelis' sound check. If the party at midnight is anything close to her sound check, this is going to be a good night.

6:35 p.m.: Josh Radner just walked in the door at the Supper Club. He's in the movie, "HappyThankyouMorePlease".

7 p.m.: Malin Ackerman is milling around the Supper Club, waiting to get seated for Chef Philippe Chow's special masterpiece of a dinner.

7:30 p.m.: The cast of "HappyThankyouMorePlease" just sat down for dinner at the Supper Club. I just chowed down on some beef and chicken skewers with the most amazing Hollandaise sauce. I have determined that Chef Philippe is the man.

9 p.m.: Bill Gates just walked in. He's doing an interview with us about "Waiting for Superman," which he is featured in. He is talking about the Gates Foundation and education right now.
