    Seven Degrees

    Advertisement



    I've been trying to get my friends to be able to connect Kevin Bacon to Will Smith using actors and movies (with no help from the Internet Movie Database). Anyone in the cafe want to attempt to give it a try? My bet's on BerryCurve to get it first... but there's alot of other stackers in here who know their movies. Give it a shot (AND NO CHEATING!)

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Kevin Bacon was in Beauty Shop? I had this pegged in like 6 or 7 moves and you did it it 3! All hail the 7 Degrees Master, Eddie_Gauge. Keep this thread going by making up your own, or just let it set here never to be seen again!

    The game is actually Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. One of my favorite games. (especially when i am drunk. Makes my brain hurt.)


    The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
    This game was developed by three college friends who went to Albright College (Reading, PA). They first appeared on the Jon Stewart show on MTV (his old show--not the daily show). It is based on the theory that Kevin Bacon is the center of the entertainment universe, and that any actor or actress can be linked back to him, typically within six degrees (six connections) (variations on this game are based on the assumption that almost anyone in the world can be linked to anyone else in the world by six or seven degrees). How can you tell?
    Simple. By looking at movies that actors and actresses have in common, you can link them to Kevin Bacon. For example, Jack Nicholson was in "A Few Good Men" with Kevin Bacon. Michelle Pfeiffer was in "Wolf" (or "The Witches of Eastwick") with Jack Nicholson, who was in "A Few Good Men" with Kevin Bacon. And so on. The number of intervening movies is that actor or actresses' Bacon Number or degree number. Thus, in this example, Nicholson would have a Bacon Number of 1 and Michelle Pfeiffer a Bacon Number of 2.

    So if you want to do Christopher Walken it would be:

    1. Christopher Walken to Tom Hanks In Catch Me If You Can

    2. Tom Hanks to Kevin Bacon in Apollo 13

    And Wesley Snipes would be:

    1. Wesley Snipes to Tommy Lee Jones in U.S. Marshalls

    2. Tommy Lee Jones to Kevin Bacon in J.F.K

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i was going to say Wesley Snipes was in Demolition Man with the fat dude from Beetlejuice. Tim Burton directed BJ and 1989s Batman. Michael Keaton reprised his role in the sequel with Christopher Walken

    Guess I'm not as good as I thought I was. It normally takes me 6 to 7 links and you keep busying it out in 3! So what about Anthony Hopkins?
