7 degrees of Elvis

You all know the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon game, right?

Well, my mom ran into Mark McKinney's mom a few days ago, and this is what came from that conversation.

When I was in 5th grade I was in a local theater production of The Wizard of Oz. During that particular production I sat in the munchkin house with Mark McKinney and we even endured a tornado in that house (along with a few other people.) Well as it turns out, Mark is now going by Gil McKinney and he's playing a doctor on ER. Which totally connects me with Elvis.

So here it goes.

1. I was in the Wizard of Oz with Mark Gil McKinney.

2. Mark Gil McKinney is on ER - George Clooney was also on ER.

3. George Clooney was in Ocean's Eleven with Brad Pitt.

4. Brad Pitt is married to Angelina Jolie.

5. Angelina Jolie was in Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicolas Cage.

6. Nicolas Cage was married to Lisa Marie Presley.

7. Lisa Marie Presley is Elvis's daughter.

Special Bonus - in 2004 Mark Gil McKinney played Young Elvis in a production of Elvis has Left the Building.

He plays Dr. Paul Grady. I don't watch ER - but My mom said he's a resident Dr. I think.

I'm more impressed with your ability to piece that little puzzle together.
