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!

Rules: These are perhaps overly thought out. Read the bold for the basics.

1. Only SAG (Screen Actors Guild) jobs are allowed. This prohibits stage appearances, as well as TV/Movie appearances where the actor plays themselves, including talk shows, reality shows, and Saturday Night Live.

2. Credited Roles only, playing a part other than "himself/herself/John Malkovitch/etc"

3. Actors and Actresses only. No Directors Writers, Editors, etc. As long as they played a credited role (see rule 2) in the movie/TV show you use they may ALSO have directed/written/fluffed/etc.

4. In case of two people unknowingly posting at the same time, the post that makes it onto the forum FIRST is the winner, and ONLY his/her choice for the next actor is valid, and only HE/SHE can claim any points. They can then taunt the slow n00b for taking too much time on IMDB. Any post in response to an invalid post is also invalid.

5. Challenge: in case of a bad post (wrong connection info, rules violation) any poster may challenge that post with the reason for the challenge and a correct connection starting with the same starting actor. If they are correct, they steal all the points from the challenged person. No posts are invalidated due to a challenge, and the challenger does not get to name a new actor, as the game continues on as if the challenge had not occured. A Forum Moderator can decide if a challenge is valid. If no moderator will decide, I will. You cannot challenge a post that has already been challenged. Minor Spelling Errors do not constite grounds for a challenge.

6. You cannot respond to your own post.
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!

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:

wikipedia said:
* Ronald Reagan (Bacon number: 2)
o Ronald Reagan was in The Young Doctors (1961) with Eddie Albert.
o Eddie Albert was in The Big Picture (1989) with Kevin Bacon.

* Adolf Hitler (3)
o Adolf Hitler was in Der Ewige Jude (1940) with Curt Bois.
o Curt Bois was in The Great Sinner (1949) with Kenneth Tobey.
o Kenneth Tobey was in Hero at Large (1980) with Kevin Bacon.

* Pope John Paul II (4)
o Pope John Paul II was in Padre Pio - Tra cielo e terra (2000) with Giovanni Lombardo Radice.
o Giovanni Lombardo Radice was in Gangs of New York (2002) with Martin Scorsese.
o Martin Scorsese was in Bringing Out the Dead (1999) with Arthur J. Nascarella.
o Arthur J. Nascarella was in In the Cut (2003) with Kevin Bacon.
*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.
