Lakers star Pau Gasol tapped into his inner child at Common Sense Media's GameOn! "fun(d)raiser" Sunday afternoon.

The seven-foot tall power forward faced off against on-court rival Trey Thompkins of the Los Angeles Clippers in a game of FIFA 13, a soccer videogame set up in one of six "game trucks" throughout the event.

Actor Jason Ritter of "Parenthood" was also spotted in a game truck playing with retro arcade games, while the "Kung Fu Panda" tried his hands (and feet) at the Wii game "Just Dance 2."

“Rizzoli and Isles” actress Sasha Alexander, actor Greg Kinnear and news anchor Lauren Sanchez-Whitesell also made appearances with their children at the family-friendly fundraiser.

The event, at IMAX headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., gathered over 100 families in support of Common Sense Media. The non-profit organization provides parents and children with guidelines about how to safely navigate the tech and media world by reviewing age-appropriate or educational games. Common Sense Media also lobbies legislators and media leaders about how to best protect children and their interests on the internet, TV and other forms of media.
