Six Degrees of Non-Kevin Bacon
« on: May 28, 2007, 03:50:02 PM »
I am unaware as to if we've had previously a 'Six Degrees' game, but I'd figure I'd start one.  But instead of 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, I figure we'd go with 6 Degrees of any two actors.

I'll put one up, someone solves it, ancd comes up with another one, etc. etc.


Sandra Bullock to Leslie Nielsen

Holy crap!  I was going to post this game!  How did you read my mind?!  Oo wee ooo- (Mentok)

Well.. I've thought about it, and I can't come up with anything just yet - I'll come back.

Matt Dillon was in Something About Mary with Ben Stiller...

Ben Stiller was in Happy Gilmore with Carl Weathers



Let's get a little crazy.... with the best attempt off the top of my head to kill the thread.... :P

Eddie Deezen to Sir John Gielgud

EDIT: I was curious... so I solved this one... and it took all six degrees, altho I would imagine shorter routes are out there.

Hulk Hogan was in Suburban Commando with Christopher Lloyd
Who was in Angels in the Outfield with Danny Glover
Who was in Leathal Weapons 1 thru whatever with Mel Gibson
Who was in Signs with Abigail Breslin

EDITS:

Nice job on the Deezen one... I worked it down to four degrees going through Jack Nicholson... who is like Sizzilean to Kevin's bacon when it comes to the six degrees game.

Deezen to Scatman Crothers in Zapped!
Crothers to Nicholson in The Shining
Nicholson to Candice Bergan in Carnal Knowledge
Bergan to Gielgud in Gandhi

I forgot to add another two actors... so....

Jake Lloyd to Lance Henriksen

Ewan McGregor was in Big Fish with Albert Finney

Albert Finney was in Erin Brockovich with Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts was in Steel Magnolias with Dolly Parton


Dabney Coleman to Haley Joe Osment

(I think we have to rename this to the "four degrees" game. Seems tough to find one that pushes beyond that...  :) )

Dabney Coleman to Haley Joe Osment

Dabney Coleman was in Domino with Mickey Rourke
who was in Sin City with Bruce Willis
Who was in The Sixth Sense with Haley Joel Osment

This is slightly too easy...what if we give two actors, and then name a movie we have to connect them through:

Mekhi Phifer to Noah Wyle through Die Hard

The true object is "six degrees or less"

Mekhi Phifer to Noah Wyle through Die Hard

Mekhi Phifer ---Shaft---Samuel L. Jackson

Jackson---Die Hard W/a Vengance--Bruce Willis

Willis--The Story of Us--Pfeiffer

Pfeiffer-White Oleander-Noah Wyle


Next:  Peter Boyle--Alicia Keyes

This one took a few... only because I insisted on working Anthony Michael Hall via "A Gnome Named Gnorm".

AMH was in AGNG with Robert Z'Dar
Z'Dar was in Tango and Cash with Michael Jeter
Jeter was in Jurrasic Park 3 with William H. Macy
Macy was in Thank You For Smoking with J.K.Simmons

To follow Smilin' Jack's idea:

LL Cool J to Jessica Tandy via Ocean's Eleven (2001)
