I know what you’re thinking, that’s two Six Degrees episodes in a row that I am using actors from a movie coming out that I’m not even going to see. I may not be interested in seeing Adam Sandler’s new movie Blended, but I couldn’t use X-Men: Days of Future Past, now could I? Bacon […]
The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
This is the party game, The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in blog form. The post is laid out starting with one actor, often one with a new TV series, season, or new movie coming out, who then is connected to Kevin Bacon within six degrees of separation based on a progressive chain of films connecting one actor (one degree of separation) to the next.
To make it more challenging, I like to use only movies I have actually seen as connections, and I try not to re-use connections, people or films, too often, but that's not always possible. It's a lot of fun, and it's a unique feature I'm proud to have here on the blog, so check out the posts and see if you can beat my score!
I know I said I was going to skip this one in the Summer Movie Guide, but since I have already done an episode too closely connected to the other movie coming out this week, Million Dollar Arm with Jon Hamm (Episode 2, Mad Men Edition with Christina Hendricks), I figured it might be fun […]
I have been waiting for this movie FOREVER! I don’t know anybody who doesn’t like Chris Evans, and there are probably even fewer who might harbor any resentment for his costar in the Winter Soldier, Robert Redford. Redford is an American film icon – he even has his own film festival. He has starred alongside […]
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 […]
Last week, we had our first taste of a season two of Bates Motel in which Michael Vartan plays (probably) Norma’s love interest. Thank. You. TV. Gods. I think a lot of us fell in love with Vartan back in 1999 when he played opposite Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed as her English teacher. […]
I went out at 10:30 Thursday night and saw the new Marvel movie, Thor: The Dark World. Spoiler alert, it was AWESOME 🙂 So, with our favorite defender of Earth and demi-god in residence in the movies this week, I thought I’d feature the man behind the hero, Chris Hemsworth, in this week’s episode of […]
This week, The Fifth Estate opened in theaters. This is one big movie I really wanted to see, and maybe I’ll get to it while it’s still in theaters. With that, I thought I’d feature the movie’s star, Benedict Cumberbatch in this week’s edition of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Six Degrees of Kevin […]
In honor of the season three premiere of American Horror Story, I’m featuring one of America’s new favorite witches, Marie Laveau, played by Angela Bassett, in this week’s edition of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Episode 17 Angela Bassett Despite her long career, I actually haven’t seen too many […]
Scandal made its season three fall premiere on Thursday, so I wanted to feature it on this week’s edition of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Kerry Washington has been making movies for a while, but she didn’t start becoming a household name until she gained traction with her role as a “fixer” on the […]
Since CBS’s new comedy We Are Men premieres tomorrow night with Tony Shalhoub, Kal Penn, and Jerry O’Connell, I wanted to feature it on this week’s episode of the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. I am super excited to see the new show! With this many big names on board, I hope that means it […]
