Since the new sitcom, Friends with Better Lives (#FBWL) is premiering tomorrow on CBS, I thought I’d focus this week’s episode on one of the series’ stars, our old friend, James Van Der Beek! Most recently, we saw James playing a version of himself on Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23, but that show met an unfortunate cancellation (prematurely, in my opinion). So, I’ve really been looking forward to FWBL, as it not only features Van Der Beek, but another favorite of mine, Kevin Connelly (Entourage)! Let’s hope it’s good, and let’s hope that it gets picked up!
Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: Episode 21
James Van Der Beek
While James left an impression on all of us as Chloe’s shallow, comedic, platonic sugar daddy/best friend in Don’t Trust the B—-, he was extremely popular years back in movies like Varsity Blues, and a series I’m sure we all remember even if we didn’t watch it, Dawson’s Creek. The Creek launched the careers of all its main characters, Joshua Jackson (Fringe), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins), and, the next connection, whom I’m sure you can guess…
Michelle Williams! While Holmes ended up married to one of Hollywood’s biggest names, Tom Cruise, Michelle Williams has arguably had the greatest amount of success with three Oscar noms under her belt for Brokeback Mountain, My Week with Marilyn, and another little film called Blue Valentine. It was in this independent film that Michelle Williams worked alongside one of another of our favorites here at Always Happy to Entertain You, one of the biggest heartthrobs in Hollywood right now…
Ryan Gosling! Gosling played Williams’ husband in Blue Valentine, and his performance was nominated for a number of awards, but it was hardly his only successful role. He had already gained wide recognition for his role in The Notebook, and since then, he’s gone on to roles alongside such names as Carey Mulligan (Drive), Anthony Hopkins (Fracture), George Clooney (The Ides of March), and, of course…
Kevin Bacon! Once again, Crazy, Stupid, Love. brings us to our final destination on the degrees of separation tour. They may not have spoken to one another on-screen, but they shared a credit nonetheless.
Results: 2 degrees of separation!
I soooo wanted to find a Krysten Ritter connection here, but the Williams opportunity presented itself, so I took it. I can’t argue with a path that’s only 2 degrees of separation!
