In Chekhov's The Seagull, which opened last week at the Walter Kerr, Treplyov gives Nina a shot bird. We asked the cast and their assorted guests what kind of weirdo gifts they've received in the past and were sufficiently creeped out by the answers. Kristen Scott Thomas got a toenail from a boy who supposedly liked her. Peter Sarsgaard gave himself a robot that plays Ping-Pong, but poor Paul Dano couldn't come up with a thing. "I don't think I get a lot of gifts," he said. "People don't like me much." We do, Paul!
