My nephews with whom I hang out at summer vacations every year (besides this one, because they’ve grown up and apparently want to work) used to watch MTV a lot. I sat there, too. I could survive it all.
Until one dreadful night.
They had discovered Jersey Shore. I don’t like reality TV, but that was something different. Something much, much more horrifying. And that wasn’t the end. Next summer, they were watching Geordie Shore. I had forgotten about the horrors imposed on me. All that came running back to me when m.brown of the ever-cool Two Dollar Cinema passed me the baton on the Six Degrees of Separation Blogathon. Connect Shirley Temple with Pauly Shore.
One could understand my mistake, right? It was like a bad dream. Until, a few nights ago, I looked up that new version of Jersey Shore. Well, turns out, Pauly Shore is an actor who’s been in many films that m.brown has probably seen. My bad. (I think he might be his favourite actor, too.)
Well, here goes, my contribution to Nostra’s awesome relay:
- Shirley Temple and Michael Sheen were both in Shooting the Hollywood Stars.
- Michael Sheen was in Frost/Nixon with Sam Rockwell.
- Sam Rockwell was in Seven Psychopaths with Christopher Walken.
- Christopher Walken was in At Close Range with Chris Penn.
- Chris Penn and the magnificent Pauly Shore were both in Pauly Shore Is Dead!
Wasn’t this fun? Sure hope the lovely Sofia at Film Flare will find this challenge as much fun (and maybe a bit less confusing) than I did! Sofia will show you how Pauly Shore and the beautiful Elle Fanning are connected.
And again, my apologies to anyone who consider mr. Shore an idol. (I think there is one person. And he’s reading this blog. Maybe two?) I almost put a halo on him.
