The Challenge: I made the connection from Kellie Martin to Matt LeBlanc in 3 TV Degrees. If Beal can do equal or better by the end of today, she gets 10 Points, with an extra 5 points if she stays out of Kellie’s vast “Made For TV” Movie library. If YOU, the reader, can do better AND post it in the comments before Beal posts her answer to the bottom of this post, YOU get a prize. Yes, I will actually mail you something awesome. It’s Cyber Monday- what if it’s a new computer?! (It won’t be. BUT special prize bonus- I’ll let you know my own personal and slightly weird connection to Kellie Martin. I know, right? SO INTRIGUING.)
The Rules: No IMDB, no Google searching, no Interwebbing of any kind. It’s all stored away in the Vault of Useless Knowledge.
Challenge Accepted: I made the connection from Kellie Martin to Matt LeBlanc in two or three degrees, depending on whether or not we are enforcing the “shared screen time” rule.
1. Kellie Martin starred in ER with Noah Wyle.
2. Noah Wyle guest starred on Friends with Matt LeBlanc.
3. (if necessary) Noah Wyle guest starred (shared screen time) on Friends with Cortney Cox/Jennifer Aniston, who starred on Friends with Matt LeBlanc.
From Judi: Well, well, well. You were fast, Beal, and more efficient than I but NOT FAST ENOUGH. Reader Jen209 clocked in with a correct answer approximately ten minutes before your posted response. She (I asssume it’s a “she”) wins a prize! AND she gets a first-person account of my somewhat creepy Kellie Martin story. Congratulations and I’m so sorry!
As for my route, I went old-school with Kellie Martin starring with Patti LuPone in Life Goes On, who shared the small screen with Alec Baldwin on 30 Rock, who played a sad date on Friends with Matt LeBlanc. Clearly, ER is a Six-Degrees gold mine, considering its epic run, and something I will keep in mind next time.
