Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg and America's next president Barack Obama have a sibling connection - their right hand men are brothers.
On Thursday (06Nov08) Rahm Emanuel accepted the position of Chief of Staff in Obama's administration and will assume his position when Obama is sworn into power on 20 January (0).
Emanuel's brother, Ari, is Wahlberg's agent - the man who inspired the character of Ari Gold in hit TV show Entourage.
Ari isn't the only brother with small screen ties - Rahm worked in the White House under former President Bill Clinton, and is rumoured to have inspired Bradley Whitford's character Josh Lyman in TV show The West Wing.
