Right, the idea of this game is to link to Kevin Bacon from any other actor, using common films.

For example, you can link Val Kilmer to Kevin Bacon like this:

Val Kilmer
| The Saint
Elizabeth Shue
| Hollow Man
Kevin Bacon

I'm fast running out of ideas of actors to try, since anyone I can come up with can be linked - Someone please help me find someone who can't be linked.

By the way, obviously people who have only been in one really, really obscure film don't really count, since you can't link them to anyone, let alone Kevin Bacon.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Well, strictly speaking, it should be linking to Kevin Bacon, but since he's in there somewhere, it's still ok.

Whoopi Goldberg was in Ghost with
Demi Moore, who was in A Few Good Men with
Kevin Bacon, who was in Apollo 13 with
Bill Paxton who was in Terminator with
Arnie.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

You are supposed to find the link within 5 films or less.

The board game is called "6 Degrees to Kevin Bacon", you are supposed to get to him in six steps or less and is really great when you are waiting for the midnight premiere of a movie to start to play with other people. Unfortunately I found that I can even link alot of music stars to him, because of his music career as well. So I was asked to refrain from playing.

This one took thought...though playing it online seems pointless cause you can look them all up but...

Ok, Topol

Topol was in For your Eyes only with
Roger Moore who was in A View to a Kill with
Grace Jones who was in Conan the Destroyer with
Arnie who was in The Terminator with
Bill Paxton who was in Apollo 13 with
Kevin Bacon


Ewan McGregor, hmmm.

He was in Moulan Rouge with
Nicole Kidman who was in Days of Thunder with
Tom Cruise who was in A Few Good Men with
Kevin Bacon.

So far, Cary Grant almost won - he took the whole 6 degrees to get to Kevin Bacon, and a hell of a lot of thinking

Bovril - you're not trying hard enough:

Cary Grant was in Charade with Walter Matthau
Walter Matthau was in JFK with Kevin Bacon


Pele - another easy one!

Bette Davis was in Wicked Stepmother with Colleen Camp
Colleen Camp was in Trapped with Kevin Bacon


Here is an interesting one:
N!xau - he was the main character in the Gods must be crazy.
I can link him in 2 steps too!

Nice one Bendy - without looking it up, I only knew one Cary Grant film, and the only useful person that let me link to was Alfred Hitchcock.

Pretty much the same with Betty Davis really.

Ok, Rowan Atkinson.
He was in 4 weddings and a funeral with
Hugh Grant who was in Notting Hill with
Julia Roberts, who was in Flatliners with
Kevin Bacon

John Cleese was in Charlie's Angels 2 with
Demi Moore who was in A Few Good Men with
Kevin Bacon

Patsy Palmer is being thrown into the same pile as Atilla the Hun - she's not even in any films!

Hmm, Kirk Douglas. He's another of those people I don't know much about, so it'll have to be pretty roundabout.
He was in Spartacus with
Laurence Olivier who was in A Bridge Too Far with
Sean Connery who was in The Rock with
Ed Harris who was in Apollo 13 with
Kevin Bacon

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Daniel Radcliff is in Harry Potter with
Warwick Davis (Prof Flitwick) who
was in Willow with Val Kilmer who
was in Top Gun with Tom Cruise who
was in A Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.

You can also do John Cleese through Harry Potter since he is "Nearly Headless Nick"


Jennifer Aniston is married to Brad Pitt who
was in Ocean's Eleven with Julia Roberts who
Was in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon.

Jet Li was in Romeo Must Die with Aaliyah who
was in Queen of the Damned based on the book by Anne Rice who wrote the screenplay for
Interview with a Vampire which starred
Tom Cruise who was in a Few Good Men with Kevin Bacon.

How about Steve "Croc Hunter" Irwin. I didn't see his movie so I have no idea who else cameod in it.

(edit to add Jet Li connection)

NOOOOOOOOOOO, I refuse to belive that Kevin Bacon can be linked to everyone

Hmm, I'll have to think about linking Steve Irwin, that might be pretty hard.

I can get from Jennifer Aniston in only 1 move though - she played the female lead opposite Kevin Bacon in Picture Perfect

Anyone who can be linked to anyone we have mentioned can deductively be linked to Bacon.

Okay...you ready to hear the most embarrassing thing I know that pertains to this thread???

Melissa Joan Hart was in the music video for the song "You Drive Me Crazy" with/by Britney Spears.
Follow the Britney link to Kevin Bacon as mentioned above.

Sean Connery was already mentioned as being linked with Ed Harris who was in Apollo 13 with Kevin Bacon. More roundabout is this one...

Sean Connery was in Highlander with
Christopher Lambert who was in Mortal Kombat with
the girl who played Sonja Blade who was in Billy Madison with
Adam Sandler who was on SNL with
Neve Campbell who was in Wild Things with Kevin Bacon.

Alicia Silverstone was in the Aerosmith video with Liv Tyler who was in Armeggedon with
half the world, but more importantly
Steve Buscemi who was in Billy Madison with
Adam Sandler who was on SNL with Neve Cambell who
was in Wild Things with Kevin Bacon.

I had to ask for help on this one...

Liza Minelli was in Cabaret with
Joel Grey who was in Remo Williams with
Fred Ward who was in Tremors with Kevin Bacon.

Elvis I know, thank you Mom (and her strange fascination).
Elvis was in a 60's movie called Speedway (I think) with Courtney Brown who was in My Dog Skip with Kevin Bacon.

Asked a friend obsessed with Charlie for this one...

Charlie Chaplin was in Countess from Hong Kong with Geraldine Chaplin who was in Chaplin with
Diane Lane who was in My Dog Skip with Kevin Bacon!

It may take me alot of steps but I eventually get there In fact I think I figured out a Steve Irwin one but I have to think on it to make sure.
