Don't know if this has been done in here before - don't remember it.... Personally, I find it can be difficult. Some answers are pretty obvious. For those of you who don't know - here's how it's played.

Some guys came up with a game that proposed that Kevin Bacon, while never a HUGE box office hit, made so many appearances in so many films, that he is essentially the "center of the cinematic universe." It suggests that ANY actor can be linked to Kevin Bacon through a maximum of six steps....

Example...

Macaulay Culkin (in honor of news story on him today - 17 grams of weed - he was loaded for bear!)
was in Home Alone with Joe Pesci (1)
who was in Goodfella's with Deniro (2)
who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon (3)

That one was easy. How about these

John Belushi
Sir Anthony Hopkins
James Gandolfini
Tim Robbins
Woody Harrelson

One of those is a trick question...


Mike

Bacon plays on the Canadian Celebrities charity hockey team with Alan Thicke.

Thicke had Frank and Moon Zappa as guests.

Frank recorded Whipping Post several times.

ABB wrote and still perform Whipping Post.

Just tied kB to the Post.

Works for me.

Or, Paul Shaffer played with the Brothers on Jessica on 2-29-96 on Letterman

Paul Shaffer was in season 5 of SNL with Akroyd (1)
who was in Trading Places with Eddie Murphy (2)
who was in Showtime with Deniro (3)
who was in Sleepers with Bacon (4)

OR

Paul Shaffer who made a cameo appearance in Look Who's Talking Too with Travolta (1)
who was in Mad City with Dustin Hoffman (2)
who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon (3)
(also see - Hoffman to Cruise in Rainman/ Cruise to Bacon in A Few Good Men)

Yeah - I know - wayyyy too much time on my hands today.

Boy George acts like a woman.
ABB like women.
Warren jams with George Porter who acts like a man but is named George.

1) Anthony Hopkins was in Red Dragon with Edward Norton
2) Edward Norton was in The Score with Robert Deniro
3) Robert DeNiro was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon

1) James Gandolfini was in 35mm with Nicholas Cage
2) Nicholas Cage was is Face Off with John Travolta
3) John Travolta was in Pulp Fiction with Samuel Jackson
4) Samuel Jackson was in rules of engagement with Tommy Lee Jones
5) Tommy Lee Jones was in JFK with Kevin Bacon

I think your trick question is Tim Robbins, who was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.

It's pretty easy when you think about them. The keys are usually Sleepers, which links with Deniro, Flatliners, which links with a lot of hot young late eighties/early nineties stars (Julia Roberts, William Baldwin, Keifer, etc.), and of course JFK.

The hard part is doing them quickly, when competing with people who do it all the time.

Fried.

That's how I like my bacon.

With eggs is acceptable.

Maybe toast too.

On a cheeseburger is also tasty.

That makes 2 because John Belushi was in Animal House with Bacon.

I don't think you'd actually need six degrees for Warren, three would probably be plenty. A few more years of his "play with everybody" program and it'll be down to one degree.

Actually Alan Thicke had Gregg Allman on as a guest (Thicke Of the Night)and suggested that the real reason that Gregg didn't become a dentist was because his hair would have gotten in the way.


John Belushi
was in The Blues Brothers (among other things) with Dan Ackroyd (1)
who was in "My Girl" with McCauley Culken (2)
who was in Home Alone with Joe Pesci (3)
who was in Goodfella's with Deniro (4)
who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon (5)

I borrowed from the example.

Woody Harrellson
was in Cheers with Ted Danson (1)
who played the father of... yes McCauley Culken (2)
who was in Home Alone with Joe Pesci (3)
who was in Goodfella's with Deniro (4)
who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon (5)

again I borrowed from the example.
