Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Recommended Posts

Kevin Bacon has been in over 65 movies. Maybe that is why playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon works so well. I didn't realize, but this game celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

The game requires you to link celebrities to Bacon, in as few steps as possible, via the movies they have in common. The more odd or random the celebrity, the better.

For example, O.J. Simpson was in "The Naked Gun 33⅓" with Olympia Dukakis, who was in "Picture Perfect" with Kevin Bacon.

Here is the Wiki article about the game.

Let's start easy and then, if you want, we can get harder as time goes on (link through only action movies, or only on TV, etc)

So let me start ...

Link Kevin Bacon to Kathy Bates.
