Hmmm...using www.imdb.com...

Looks like John Cleese was in a film called "The Big Picture" with....Kevin Bacon.  :)


Okay...let's see...an actor...

Gerard Depardieu 

Not sure if that will be an easy one or not, but I hope it will be a bit hard, assuming no-one uses a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon search engine.  ;)

Let's see...not sure this is the shortest path, but...

James Spader was in "Stargate" with Kurt Russell

Kurt Russell was in "3000 Miles To Graceland" with Kevin Costner

Kevin Costner was in "JFK" with Kevin Bacon.

Okay!  Let's see here... Daniel Radcliffe.  (He plays Harry Potter in the films, for reference)

Let's see...hopefully voice acting isn't cheating.  ;)

Julie Andrews was in "Shrek 2" with Mike Meyers
Mike Meyers was in "Shrek" with John Lithgow
John Lithgow was in "Footloose' with Kevin Bacon.


Okay...mostly noted as a terrible director, but he did act in at least one of his films, albeit under the psuedonym "Danny Davis"


Ed Wood.

Oh darn, Kevin Bacon was in A Few Good Men, wasn't he? You could just do a Nicholson-Bacon connection in one step like that, couldn't you?

Which Ed Wood there is two!

The first Ed Wood cannot be linked to Kevin Bacon using only feature films.

The second Ed Wood has a Bacon number of 3.

Ed (II) Wood was in Meatcleaver Massacre (1977) with Christopher (I) Lee
Christopher (I) Lee was in Salamander, The (1981) with Eli Wallach
Eli Wallach was in Mystic River (2003) with Kevin Bacon.

You're using something like "The Oracle of Kevin Bacon" or one of the other online search engines for such.  :p  More fun if you just go by memory, or at most research it on www.imdb.com.  :p  In fact, I can almost guarentee that the reason there's more then one is because they do the same mistake www.imdb.com does, they have a couple incomplete entries for him, along with one complete one.

Well...to just use www.imdb.com...

Rin Tin Tin at least barked in "While London Sleeps" with Walter Merrell
Walter Merrell had a role in "Sergeants 3" with Frank Sinatra
Frank Sinatra's voice was used for the "Singing Sword" in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", which also had Bob Hoskins.
Bob Hoskins was in "Balto" with...Kevin Bacon.


Okay...yes, I know she's a singer but I think she did at least one movie with her brother...

Marie Osmond.

And no using a Kevin Bacon search engine.  :p

No problem.  ;)  Still...your turn if you want to take it, left it with "Marie Osmond".
