Wikipedia says “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a trivia game based on the concept of the small world phenomenon and rests on the assumption that any individual involved in the Hollywood, California film industry can be linked through his or her film roles to actor Kevin Bacon within six steps.”
I love Kevin Bacon. I think he’s one of the most unsung and greatest actors we have. I’ve never even seen the new Footloose because…well…why would I?
Tom Selleck is also one of my favorite actors. Well, he doesn’t even have to act—he can just stand there. Or lie there. You know. I like him even better as Jesse Stone, the sad-eyed, aging cop, than I did as Thomas Magnum of dancing eyes and short, tight shorts.
ONE MORE SUMMER, my latest book, is available on audio http://www.audible.com/search/ref=sr_topbox_1 (a huge squee moment for me). It’s read by actress Rebecca Gibel, who did a wonderful, wonderful job, making the characters—and the story—so much her own I found myself wondering what was going to happen next when I was listening to it. Which is a little weird, because I of all people know what’s going to happen next. I was so enthralled I left a review of the production on Audible's website and Ms. Gibel in turn mentioned me on her blog on her website http://www.rebeccagibel.com/ . Are you with me so far?
As I mentioned, Rebecca Gibel is an actress. She has numerous stage credits, plus, PLUS, she's appearing in Blue Bloods, a TV series on CBS on Friday nights. One of the brightest stars in the show's stellar cast is Tom Selleck.
Now, I don't think I'm particularly starstruck. I've seen a few famous people from afar, have been to concerts, even talked to Nora Roberts for a few minutes at RWA's national conference in Chicago a long time ago. (There was a whole group of us, we all talked to her, and she was terrific. Still is.) I don't consider myself a squealer or the groupie type, but...TOM SELLECK! Someone who has read every word of my book has worked on the same set as Tom Selleck!
