Rain Man Running Interference for Lindz?

Lindsay Lohan has an unlikely, but effective, advance man: Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman.

Dusty created a paparazzi scene when he left Villa last night, taking the paps on a long walk away from the club before "realizing" he was going to the wrong car. Some of the snappers were certain that Hoffman was helping out a fellow thesp by taking them for the ride.

What's more, Lindsay was photographed arriving, but nobody ever saw Lindsay take off. The mystery deepens.
