David Arquette keeps silent at the Scream Awards 2010

October 17, 2010 | 11:07 am


While we've also got the full scoop on Spike TV's Scream Awards 2010, the edgy telecast saluting the horror and hero genres, we thought you'd also like to check in on David Arquette's whereabouts at the Saturday night event.

Scream-awards-gallery-refer The actor made his first public appearance (not counting Arquette's candid Howard Stern interview) since announcing his separation from his wife of 11 years, Courteney Cox

In tow with cast members Neve Campbell and Emma Roberts, Arquette was on hand to present new footage from "Scream 4," the much-anticipated next chapter of Wes Craven's slasher franchise. Clad in a brown leather jacket and showing a hint of a tan, Arquette walked the red carpet for photos only before sprinting away from broadcast and print media.

Once inside, he stuck close to Campbell and Roberts, sharing snacks like macaroni and cheese and taking more photos. Never too far was his pal Jeff Beacher, with whom he'll host an upcoming variety show at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Presumably a big support for Arquette, Beacher has been a fixture at his side during recent events (like Seth MacFarlane's big bash last weekend, where the two worked the room together two days before the split with Cox went public).

Come spring, Arquette and Cox will promote "Scream 4" together -- or, at least, in tandem -- with an April 2011 release expected. Click the photo of Jackson Rathbone and Kristen Stewart, above right, to launch a gallery of pictures from the Scream Awards 2010.
