    I was talking to someone about the six degrees of Bacon and was surprised to realize that I can do it with myself and in only 4 degrees!!! [​IMG]

    I was in a local production called "A Girl's Guide" with Catherine Dent,
    who was in "The Majestic" with Jim Carrey,
    who was in "The Truman Show" with Ed Harris,
    who was in "Apollo 13" with Kevin Bacon.

    p.s. of course, this is all dependant on whether you consider "A Girl's Guide" (a TV movie) to be an actual 'movie' and you consider me (a non-credited 'extra') to be an 'actor'. [​IMG]

    That's really cheating. Since it's only supposed to be two people in any one "interaction", saying "who composed the music for Kandukondain Kandukondain starring Aishwarya Rai,"...that should be two different things.

    Huh? Kandukondain Kandukondain is the name of a movie, not a person.

    I can do it in 4 steps in two different ways:


    A good friend of mine is Mark J. Richardson
    who had a role in Pocahontas: The Legend starring Tony Goldwyn
    who starred in Ghost with Demi Moore
    who starred in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon


    OR (and I prefer this one)


    A good friend of mine is Mark J. Richardson
    who had a small role in an NFB commercial about Winnie The Pooh starring a young bear cub
    who starred in A River Runs Through It with Brad Pitt
    who starred in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon

    I never thought about this. Do TV shows count?

    I was clearly seen on TV in the audience of the Jimmy Kimmel Live. So this would make me 2-3 degrees, correct? 2 if Bacon has been on the show, or 3 if you pick the guest/host that were on the show that night...

    I was on Jimmy Kimmel Live with Tony Danza as a guest.
    He was in Crash with Sandra Bullock
    who was in Loverboy with Kevin Bacon

    Or...
    I was on Jimmy Kimmel Live with host Jimmy Kimmel
    who was in Road Trip with Rachel Blanchard
    who was in Where the Truth Lies with Kevin Bacon

    I'm really horrible at playing this game, but the internets help.

    Amy Smart from the new TV show called Smith.

    Amy Smart was in Rat Race, and with so many stars in that movie, making a bacon connection should be pretty easy too.


    EDIT: Just in case no one knows who was in Rat Race.

    Yeah - I only brought it up because taking me (not at all anything CLOSE to being an actor), I thought it was funny how I could actually do it with myself in less than 6 degrees...especially considering that the only movie I appeared in was some local/crappy movie that never made it to the theater and only aired on TV during USA's "Up All Night" cheesy movie fest; and also being that it really didn't star anyone except for the (then unfamous) Catherine Dent, I thought it quite humorous.

    I need to pull up my From the Earth to the Moon to figure out my number. I went to high school with a girl who was an extra in one of the banquet scenes, and I can't remember which actors were in those scenes.

    I recognized her immediately, but I was unable to confirm it until I saw her at my high school reunion in 2004. She was surprised I noticed, and said I was the first person to have asked her that in the 6 years (at the time) since the miniseries aired.

    > who composed the music for Kandukondain Kandukondain,
    which starred Aishwarya Rai,

    Is there some reason composers need 2 lines, but actors get 1? Because the way you rewrote that doesn't make sense to me.

    I rode on an escalator behind Patrick MacNee (The Avengers TV series) at Logan Int'l Airport once.

    Thus:

    Patrick Macnee was in Chill Factor (1990) with Carrie Snodgress
    Carrie Snodgress was in Wild Things (1998) with Kevin Bacon

    A tenuous connection at best..but it's all I got!

    So what's your Bacon number if you've sat down and talked with the man? He and his brother played a short gig at my old work and I sat around with them afterwords and we talked about music and movies.

    If it has to be via movie credits then I have a 3. My ex-brother in law had a bit part in "For the Boys" with Bette Midler and Bette appears with Kevin in "The Magic 7."
