    For those of you who don't know the term "6 degrees of separation," you may know it as 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon. Somebody realized, back in the 90's, that if you take any actor in hollywood, big or small, you can link them in 6 moves or less, with Kevin Bacon. It's the kind of game that's great for long car rides, etc. It can get extremely interesting sometimes. I've linked people you couldn't imagine, Matt LeBlanc, Aston Kutcher, That dude from Quantum Leap. Anyway, I'm having trouble with a fairly simple one. Matt Damon. Can you guys help me?

    It's the Internet Movie Data Base.

    And no, I didn't use IMDB. But I do have other sources for connections to Kevin Bacon movies!

    Funny, I would have used Minnie Driver.

    Matt and Minnie - Good Will Hunting
    Kevin and Minnie - Sleepers

    Here's a possible tough one for you...

    Kevin and Mandy Moore...

    Thing is - with the Oracle of Bacon, it really is hard to find a hard one.


    Mandy Moore was in Dr. Dolittle 2 with Frankie Muniz
    Frankie Muniz was in My Dog Skip with Kevin Bacon

    Well, it's supposed to be 6 degrees of seperation FOR ANY TWO PEOPLE ON THE PLANET.

    In Hollywood, there's almost always a 6-or-less route through Kevin Bacon. I think it ought to be 3 degrees of Kevin Bacon, just to make it challenging.

    damn, you guys are good. But I have one you guys probably won't be able to do, if only because it's the wrong decade. Ronnie Reagan and Kevin Bacon.

    I played street hockey with Kevin Bacon when I was a kid. He lived two blocks away. 1 degree? Then twenty years later I played ice hockey with his nephew, who was living with his Granddadat the time (KB's Father).

    The link above does it in 3...

    Personally, I found one actor they couldn't connect him with. He's a friend of mine that's done guest appearances on a couple of TV shows. He's listed on IMDB which the Oracle uses...

    But I don't know if that's fair.
