    6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon

    Can't beat the real thing!

    How to Play: Connect the actor named in the post above yours to Kevin Bacon in 6 steps or less. Once you do, you list another actor for the next poster to connect. You get an extra point for each connection below 7. Keep track of these points! Whoever has the most at the end of the thread is the winner!

    I'll start with Sigourney Weaver as an example:

    1. Sigourney Weaver => Changing Places => Dan Akroid
    2. Dan Akroid => Dragnet => Tom Hanks
    3. Tom Hanks => Apollo 13 => Kevin Bacon
    4. 1 Point!
    5. 1 Point!
    6. 1 Point!
    1 Point!

    Total Points earned for PlagueBearer: 4

    Next: Ken Watanabe

    Is that Turk from Scrubs? He was in I, Robot with Will Smith I think. I'm sure it's easy to link from Will Smith to Kevin Bacon, but I've only ever seen maybe three or four movies with Kevin Bacon in them. That's why I hate this version of Six Degrees and play the modified one instead.

    Here's some interesting Bacon numbers I stumbled on in Wikipedia:

    *EDIT* Wait, I mean that guy from Boston Public. I got them confused for a moment.

    Boston Public was such a good show.

    Anyway, either you guys really suck, or just don't care to play. Probably the latter.

    I've Chi in 2.

    1. McBride -> Undercover Brother -> Denise Richards

    2. Denise Richards -> Wild Things -> Kevin Bacon

    And Dondrei, you only need to have seen 2 movies to play. A Few Good Men, and Wild Things.

    I did see those two, and Footloose. I think it gets tedious going back to Kevin Bacon all the time though.

    And if no-one else is going to do it, I'll pick one: Jessica Simpson.

    @Plague: Does that mean that we can't link anyone through Star Wars movies - those actors aren't part of the SAG.
