Peter Parker in a poker pickle



Tobey Maguire/Getty ImagesThis next item is about as dizzying as the plot of Spider-Man 3. (Wait, who is Venom again?) Former Peter Parker Tobey Maguire is being sued for $300,000 in poker winnings.

Turns out the high-stakes card game –- held in the Hollywood Hills and also featuring such playas as Ben Affleck and Leonardo DiCaprio –- was unlicensed and also included a bad dude named Brad Ruderman, who is currently in prison for running a Ponzi scheme.

The people screwed over by Ruderman are now suing Maguire, saying he essentially has their money. Got that?

If so, here’s one more detail to this whole filthy business. The card game went down in the home of Rick Salomon, star, producer and major scumbag behind the Paris Hilton sex tape.
