Forums: The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

  • All right, I'm sure you all know how the game works, so here's how we're going to play. Someone give a name. The first person to link it gets to choose the next name, and so on...and you can't answer your own name, so I'll post the first one, and whoever gets it can choose the next name, and then wait for someone to get that one. Sounds like fun!!

    Here's an example for those of you who don't know how it works.

    Sandra Bullock

    (1)Sandra Bullock was the voice of Miriam in the Prince of Egypt, which also starred (2)Michelle Pfeiffer, who was also in I Am Sam with (3)Sean Penn, who was in Mystic River with (4) Kevin Bacon.

    That was an easy one...try to make it challenging. :wink: Let's have some fun.

    SCORING::
    And here's how we'll make it interesting. For every legitimate match you get (you must be the first to post it after the name is mentioned) you will get one two points. BUT if you can go back and redo a match that has already been made in LESS steps than the original person did, you will receive FIVE points for that (you cannot go back and shorten matches that were your own to begin with.

    Once the game is on the ball, list your own score with every post you make in this thread...that way, we can clearly see how many points each person has. Since I created the thread, I will be the judge and have final say in all matters here. But I'm impartial, so it shouldn't make a difference.

    The First Name is...WESLEY SNIPES
    Good Luck! :D

    Upon review, it has been determined that Warren Beatty was NOT in American Beauty. Thus, Sarah does not get a point for this. If you can prove I'm wrong, I will reverse the decision and you can have your point back.

  • Although...it doesn't matter if Sara gets the points or not..because I get five :D

    (1)Cary Grant was in North by Northwest(1959) with (2)Edward Platt who was in Cape Fear(1962) with (3)Gregory Peck who was in Cape Fear(1991) with (4)Robert DeNiro who was in Sleepers(1996) with (5)Kevin Bacon

    Bang...five steps.

    I now have seven points. And the next name is still Alyssa Milano.

  • oops! I made a typo..I meant Katherine Hepburn was in Love Affair with Warren Beatty. It was just a f*ck up.
  • 11 years ago
  • Alyssa Milano was in Fear with Mark Wahlberg who was in the Italian Job with Charlize Theron who was in Trapped with Kevin Bacon.

    Ohh..How about another TV star Lisa Kudrow.

    I get the point for making the connection in less films. 8)

    Only joking, but I can do it in 2 moves. :wink:
  • 11 years ago
  • Well...since Carl can't answer his own challenge....and NEITEHR of them got it in six steps or less...Bogart is still the name to beat.
  • 11 years ago
  • Actually if you count it is 6 steps. I would think the Slepers reference would be the last step not naming sevenpeople and Would Kevin Bacon count as a step if they are in the movie together.

  • What's IMBD?

    Humphrey Bogart was in Beat the Devil with Peter Lorre
    Lorre was in Around the World in 80 days with Shirley McClain
    McClain was in Steel Magnolias as the lovable Weezuh with Julia Roberts
    Roberts was in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon.

    Do I have to choose a different movie because I already said Flatliners?

    I love this game. I usually play it by giving two random actors and trying to connect them.
