Yes, it’s an old meme, but I’m really bored. Here’s how it works:
I would say “Chris Penn was in Footloose with KB” “Chris Penn was in Corky Romano with Fred Ward, who was in Tremors with KB”. Basically, take an actor that was in a movie with KB (acting, not directing producing etc.) Find an actor that was in a movie with the first actor, that was also in a movie with KB. It’s a bit easier than it sounds. If you doubt this, feel free to enter the name of any actor/actress into the official 6 degrees of Bacon site.
It’s much simpler if we stick to relatively well known actors. If we get stuck, we can go for a do-over.
Feel free to use IMDB for browsing, but don’t use the official Six Degrees site(s).
Also, if this is better suited for CS, please move it. I thought that a game thread might go over better here.
The wikipedia site gives more info in case this is new to you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Six_Degrees_of_Kevin_Bacon
