Alright folks. I have come to try the Kevin Bacon Game with this board. I am damn knowledgeable guy with movies and I think I could take on almost any challenge from the board with few exceptions. One: foreign films are a no go. Besides, every foreign film person can be traced back to Jackie Chan or Gerard Depardieu. Yes, even your favorite German expressionistic film actors can be linked to one of the two. Two: no really obscure actors/actresses/extras. I'm not about to try to track juror number 3 from Jury Duty. Try to be kind. With reason, I believe I can connect anyone in Hollywood to Kevin Bacon.

Also, I will go on Scout's Honor that I will not look it up online. If you ever want to challenge me outside of the board, I am on the chat quite often. Anyhow, go ahead.

nice work


keira knightly is the leading lady in pirates of the carribean, also she was juliet in love actually, also she was in star wars episode one (so you could have connected her to natalie portman).

OXmanK, Brad Pitt is not in A Few Good Men so that's incorrect.

Keira Knightley was in Love Actually (as has been mentioned), but with Laura Linney (you may know her from The Truman Show (she played Jim Carrey's wife).

Laura Linney was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon, of course...(she played Annabeth)...


More Mystic River (a great film for the Bacon game)...

Ben Kingsley was in Searching for Bobby Fisher with Laurence Fishburn, who was then of course, in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.

Alan Rickman was in Bob Roberts with Tim Robbins (you know, Susan Sarandon's hubby), and of course Tim Robbins was in, yep, you guessed it...Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.

Natalie Portman was in Beautiful Girls with Matt Dillon, who was in Wild Things with Kevin Bacon.

I can't do Bacon and The Rock without being obscure in two, but I can do it in more I think....

The Rock was in The Mummy with Rachel Weiz (spelling?) who was then in Stealing Beauty with Liv Tyler, who was then in U Turn with Sean Penn, who was of course in Mystic River

to find a link between Kevin Bacon and John Matuzak (spelled wrong? probably). My mom went to school with Matuzak, so it'd be neat to see where I'd be in the connection line...
