Since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres this week, already with over a million Facebook fans and 100k Twitter followers, I thought I’d feature the man with a plan, Agent Phil Coulson, played by the incredible Clark Gregg, in this week’s 6DKB (what do you think of the abbreviation? Yes or no?). Clark Gregg is another one […]
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!
Since It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia debuted its NINTH season last week, it’s earned a spot on the Bacon rotation 😉 I’ve decided to focus on Charlie Day, because let’s face it, he’s pretty much the best thing to happen to TV comedy in years. Charlie Day is actually not my favorite character on Sunny, […]
Since it’s the dreaded final season of Burn Notice, I thought I’d spotlight one of my favorite actors, a guy I had never heard of before this show started, but now I see everywhere. Jeffrey Donovan has come so far over the course of this show, even going so far as to direct a few […]
Aaron Sorkin means great television. Yeah, the stories go astray from time to time, the networks lose their faith in the ratings, and the dialogue can be hard to keep up with, but the man’s ahead of his time. He makes great television even though the television networks and viewers may not be able to […]
This fall is looking like a scheduling nightmare. Though Mark Strong’s new show, Low Winter Sun (AMC) starts tonight (8/11), a few weeks before most of the networks debut the new lineup, it looks awesome so I thought I’d feature it and its star this week. Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: Episode 10 Mark Strong […]
We recently got a subscription to Showtime, and it happened to coincide with the premiere of their new series, Ray Donovan, starring Liev Schreiber. I’ve really been enjoying it, and I’m relieved that we’ve got the subscription through the end of the series. It’s gritty, ugly, and the acting is hardcore. I’ve never seen a […]
IT’S HERE!! The new serial killer drama on FX, The Bridge, premieres this Wednesday at 10 PM. AND, lucky us, it’s the big man’s birthday. That’s right! Kevin Bacon was born this day, July 8th, in 1958. So… Happy Birthday, Kevin Bacon! And many more! In honor of the new show, starring one of my […]
Upcoming WEDNESDAY release from Disney is The Lone Ranger! I was a little skeptical at first, Disney does the Lone Ranger? And Johnny Depp as Tonto? But, after checking out some trailers and reading about the film, I decided it looks pretty good. Bonus? The guy playing the Lone Ranger is the almost-too-good-looking guy that […]
Since this weekend saw the wide release of Joss Whedon’s take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, I thought I’d challenge myself once again to finding the connection between one of the film’s stars, Amy Acker, and the hero of this segment, Kevin Bacon. That’s ACKER, not ADAMS, like we had last week on the […]
It’s that time again! With the long-awaited release of Man of Steel this weekend, I wanted to see whether I could put the man in tights himself, Henry Cavill, head to head with our favorite film actor, Kevin Bacon. It took me a while, but I got a good one! Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon […]
