    There is a theory that everyone in the world is connected by six degrees of separation. In this game the objective is to connect a given hollywood actor to Kevin Bacon through six movies.

    JFK may not be used as the final link to Kevin Bacon (too easy, far too many cameos).

    Example

    Vince Vaughn
    was in Psycho with Anne Heche, who
    was in Six Day Seven Nights with Harrison Ford, who
    was in Air Force One with Gary Oldman, who
    was in Criminal Law with
    Kevin Bacon

    4 degrees shown.

    Feel free to shorten a previous list (hint - this one can be halved) and leave a name for the next person to solve.

    I'll begin with...

    Christian Bale

    Christian Bale:
    was in Empire of the Sun with John Malcovich
    was in Dangerous Liasons with Glenn Close
    was in Mars Attacks with Jack Nicholson
    was in A few Good Men with Kevin Bacon

    OK I'll go with Johnny Depp next... (I wish)

    Edit - damn - beaten to it:
    OK:
    Dame Edna (Barry Humphries) was in Finding Nemo with Willem Dafoe
    was in Born on the Fourth of July with Beau Starr
    Beau Starr was in Where the Truth Lies with Kevin Bacon

    I repeat - Depp!

    Finding Nemo - Dafoe
    Born on the 4th of July- Cruise
    A Few Good Men - Bacon

    That almost made me late for work.

    'Tis 7, sorry. I'll shorten that by shortcutting Jon Voight to Burt Renolds in Deliverance, Burt to Demi Moore in Striptease, then Demi to Bacon in A Few Good Men.

    You forgot to leave a name Ms Bannisters so you're up again.

    Yes well - I didn't feel worthy having convaluted myself up to 7!

    Still Gwenny is easy peasy:

    GP was in Shakespeare in Love with Colin Firth
    CF was in Where the Truth Lies with Kevin Bacon

    I have redeemed myself

    Christopher Walken (without using a Few Good Men? - cos there's more than a few of the buggers :wink: )

    To be mean friends and I would play Six Degrees of Divine Brown.

    It was a math problem associated with CDC formulas or something like that and the news at the time that got it started.

    Oh, FFS!

    I was thinking of someone completely different.

    Robert Carlyle in Trainspotting with-
    Ewan McGregor in Brassed Off with-
    Pete Postlethwaite in The Usual Suspects with-
    Kevin Pollack in A Few Good Men with-
    Kevin Bacon

    Bloody Hell what a pain in the ass that was.

    Now someone else can do who I thought it was.

    Heh. Do you have to be listed in the credits to have a Kevin Bacon number? 'Cause if not, here's an LPSG-themed connection:

    Mindseye was an uncredited extra in Duncan's World (1977) with Ben Browder.
    Ben Browder was in A Kiss Before Dying with Matt Dillon.
    Matt Dillon was in Loverboy with Kevin Bacon.
