    While I was at work the other day we were playing one of those 7 degrees game and seeing how many actors we could link together. I find it to be a great game and a little challenging at times. So as I was laying in bed this morning unable to breathe because of a stuffed up nose I thought maybe the fanforce wouldn't mind playing the game as well.

    I'm sure you all know the rules, you take one actor and try and link them to another in so many steps. Let's try and keep it as few as possible.

    So here goes the first one:
    Hillary Duff and Harrison Ford

    There might be a shorter way but...

    Hilary Duff was in Cheaper by the Dozen with Steve Martin
    who was in Bowfinger with Robert Downey Jr
    who was in US Marshals with Tommy Lee Jones
    who was in Fugitive with Harrison Ford

    :D

    :confused: Is this too hard or is no one interested?

    Brittany Murphy was in 8 Mile with
    Kim Basinger who was in Wayne's World 2 with
    Christopher Walken who was in Sleepy Hollow with
    Johnny Depp.

    Aren't we supposed to be connecting everyone to Kevin Bacon?

    Only in 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon. You can pick any two actors.

    Who was in Grumpy Old Men with Kevin Pollak
    Who was in A Few Good Men with Tom Cruise (and Kevin Bacon :p )
    Who was in Interview with a Vampire with Brad Pitt

    Awesome!

    I would have gone the James Stewart in "Man Who Shot Liberty Valance"
    with John Wayne who was in "True Grit"
    with Robert Duval who was in "Secondhand Lions"
    with Haley Joel Osment rout, but good job only using movies you've seen!

    Thanks, I play this game at home all the time. (Of course, it's them who give me the actors, and me who solves it.) It's rare that I find people able to do this sort of thing.

    Here's a twist.

    Connect Gabriel Byrne to Keanu Reeves, and include "The Lion King" (voice actors) in the middle somewhere.

    Hmmm, interesting twist. . .

    Gabriel Byrne in Quest for Camelot
    with Gary Oldman who was in The Fifth Element
    with Bruce Willis who was in Die Hard with a Vengeance
    with Jeremy Irons who was the voice of Scar in The Lion King
    with Nathan Lane who was in Titan A.E.
    with Drew Barrymore who was in Babes in Toyland
    with Keanu Reeves.

    I don'n know if Babes in Toyland counts since it was a made for TV movie, but it's the best I can do for now.

    Alright, we'll throw some local fun into it.

    John Heder to Lawrence Olivier. I won't throw in any stipulations since I haven't worked this one out for myself yet.

    I assume you mean Jon Heder from Napoleon Dynamite.

    If that's the case then, all except the first one, again using only movies I have seen.

    Jon Heder was in Napoleon Dynamite with Jon Gries
    who was in The Pretender with Patrick Bauchau
    who was in James Bond: A View to a Kill with Christopher Walken
    who was in The Stepford Wives with Matthew Broderick
    who was in The Lion King with James Earl Jones
    who was in Jesus of Nazarith with Laurence Olivier

    BTW, I belive both The Lion King and A Few Good Men are major hubs in this game.

    You go Corrin_Wyndryder

    I didn't know who Laurence Oliver was so I looked it up and I haven't seen The Bounty.

    Ok, Here's another one.

    This should be easy.

    Alec Guinness to Ewan McGregor WITHOUT using Star Wars or anyone affiliated with Star Wars. :p

    (I can do it with one actor, can you?)

    oh oh oh!! I can do it with the one actor!!!

    Alec Guinness was in Scrooge with Albert Finney who, in Big Fish, played the older version of Ewan McGreggor!!

    ps. I don't know if we are using TV shows, but...Corrin, The Pretender is a TV show, not a movie.

    They did make a TV movie of The Pretender.

    And if that disqualifies me, I'll go with the connection of Jon Gries being in Get Shorty with John Travolta and go from there.

    BTW, good job. Again, movies I've seen, (actually, my parents own one and I own the other.)

    You're up. :D

    That is true, there was a TV movie of the Pretender...two to be exact if you are fan of the show and counting (waits patciently for the hoped on DVD set of the series...)

    hm, so I get to do one?? oh wow! Okay, I want to see a connection of two of my favorite actors: Tommy Lee Jones to Peter Falk! I haven't done it yet but I'm going to try, I think it will be fun!

    who was in Star Wars with Harison Ford
