    This game is simple.

    An actor must be connected to Kevin Bacon in less than six moves.

    EXAMPLE:
    If the actor given was Walter Matthau
    You would say..

    Walter Matthau was in JFK with Kevin Bacon and you would be done in one move. 
    (Which is ideal)
    JFK is the one movie that is every players best friend because a lot of people were in it.
    Kevin Bacon plays the gay inmate.


    If it was Natalie Portman
    You would say..

    Natalie Portman was in The Professional with Gary Oldman
    who plays Lee Harvey Oswald in JFK with KB.

    YOUR CHALLENGE is to do any of the following actors

    1) Brian Dennehy
    2) Don Knotts
    3) Leslie Nielson
    4) Annabella Sciorra
    5) Glynis Johns
    6) John Stamos
    7) Kate Nelligan
    8) Jenny McCarthy
    9) Corey Feldman
    10) Pee Wee Herman

        Well, Kevin and Matt were both in Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam together.

        You never said if only movies count.  This is a documentary.

    This is fun and challenging. Took me 15 minutes to do those two.

      Glad you liked them.

      Can you do Edie McClurg in 1 move w/out looking it up?

      Or how about Bruce McGill in one move?

    Not sure who Edie McClurg is but I think Bruce and Kevin were both in Animal House.

    That's Right.   

    Edie McClurg is the secretary from Ferris Bueller.

    So...if it doesn't have to be movies only...

    John Stamos (hot) > Demi Moore on General Hospital (yup, grew up with a mother who loves the soap opera...she watched it everyday while pregnant with me.
    Demi Moore > Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men (back when I was in love with Tom Cruise)


    BUT, if TV doesn't count, then neither does this.

    You can only use MOVIES/TV Shows where they were together in it.  Documentaries are fine.  But no easy corellations. 

    there is another thread where ALL the rules went right out the window.  That's why i made this one.  it's for serious players only. 

    Stacie is a hell of a problem solver so I expect she could Brian Dennehy if pressed.

    Brian Dennehy > Laura San Giacomo on Just Shoot Me

    Laura San Giacomo > Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman

    Julia Roberts > Kevin Bacon in Flatliners

    OR

    Brian Dennehy > Helen Hunt in Miles from Home

    Helen Hunt > Kevin Bacon on Mad About You

    The second is better for sure.  Dennehy isn't so easy.  He's in a lot, but one of those actors that plays different roles so well that you don't notice it is him.

    When I was in high school, my best friend and I used to play this game.  When we got bored, we would stay up all night playing it with a twist: trying to stump each other by linking actors together by movie, but trying to find very obscure actors.  We had a rule that no movie or actor could be repeated.  And we never used the internet back then.

    I love the scene in South Park: The Movie when Brian Dennehy shows up in the middle of the song during "What would Brian Boitano Do?"  and they're like ???
