UNCLE ELVIS: I have nothing

UNCLE ELVIS: I have nothing really to say about either the upcoming 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death or the recent wedding of his daughter Lisa Marie Presley to actor Nicolas Cage, except to mention another wedding: my good friend Dena was married last month and her new husband Mike, in addition to being a great guy, happens to be a second cousin of the actress Selma Blair (from "Cruel Intentions"). Selma, it has been rumored, is the girlfriend of "Rushmore" actor Jason Schwartzman, who is himself the son of actress Talia "Adrian!" Shire, the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, and the first cousin of Nicolas Cage. Now that Nick and Lisa Marie have tied the knot, the Presleys have been united by marriage with the Coppolas (hey, better them than the Jacksons), and the next big wedding I hope to see is one between Schwartzman and Blair. I may not be a big fan of either one (indeed, when I met Schwartzman on a promotional tour for "Rushmore" I thought him an irritable little shit), but if they were to marry, my friends would suddenly become related (albeit tangetically and posthumously, yet still related), to Elvis.
