Let's cut to the chase here: David Arquette is a REAL good sport.

Elsewise how would you explain this "Scream" star's willingness to do a synchronized Sprinkler with Master Moves Mickey ...

Which was probably not the smartest move. After all, given David & Sharon's connection to the crew that produce this hit Disney Junior series...

... I'm betting that these two could have hooked those kids up with some really cool playthings.
