Paper clip turns into film role

A series of trade ups over the internet involving a red paper clip and the town of Kipling, Sask. has resulted in a Hollywood movie role for one of the town’s residents.
It all began with Kyle MacDonald of Montreal, who placed the paper clip on eBay last summer, hoping to trade up to a home. After 14 trades â.. which involved a keg of beer, a cube van, a recording contract, a snowmobile and a snow globe from rock star Alice Cooper â.. MacDonald got his wish.
