Kevin Pollak who was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon


I'm terrible at this kind of game, but I love the idea that the full name of that movie is really A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.

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.

Not playing the game (yet), but -- when my daughter was in college she got a job at  Blockbuster.  The big interview question was this game.  I've forgotten who the other actor was, but she managed it.  At the time, she hadn't heard of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, so it took her really off guard.  Since her two years working there, you should hear her now, even ten years later.

I've always played it as movies-in-common only, but I do know some play it with tv shows.  I don't have a preference, but movies-only does make it a bit more challenging (in a good way)

Brad Renfro who was in Sleepers with

Kevin Bacon

Next up: Christopher Meloni

I always thought it was film roles only.  And they both had to be actors (not one director, one actor and such.)

That was my thought as well, I just wanted to confirm! Thanks!
