OC Couple’s Cell Phone is So Money

GMARemember all that business in Swingers about the (310) vs. (818)? Well, it’s been wonderfully and accidentally updated thanks to a couple that moved at the beginning of the year from Cleveland to the OC.

A wacky cell phone adventure involving Bob Gray and his girlfriend Liza Foster is now deservedly making the media rounds. After Gray inherited the 310 digits of writer-comedian Nick Swardson, this pair was able to make the Paris Hilton 2011 birthday party invite list and connect with various other show business folk.  They are currently turning their one-degree-of-separation experiences into a movie script on the advice of Swardson pal Adam Sandler, who called in one day looking for the previous cell number owner.

You will rarely hear off-camera crew members of a morning TV show laugh as heartily as they do in the GMA footage when Gray gleefully recounts his exchange with the gatekeepers of the aforementioned Hilton party. (“Park it!”)

Fabulous stuff.
