    So this game is just for fun; no real prizes, just time to kill and relax.

    The idea is the same as the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon; connecting two actors through other actors who have shared movies with them.

    Sounds hard? At times it is.

    Basically, you start out with a pair of actors. You then have to find links on how to connect the two in under six steps. If you manage to do so, then post a new pair.

    Confused yet? Here's a sample.

    Anne Hathaway and Laurence Olivier


    Anne Hathaway was in Ella Enchanted with Cary Elwes.
    Cary Elwes was in Robin Hood: Men in Tights with Patrick Stewart.
    Patrick Stewart was in Wild Geese II with Laurence Olivier.


    Get it?

    Rules:
    *Don't use those cheating websites that will do this for you. That makes it no fun. :(
    *It has to be in 6 degrees or less (or 6 connections or less)
    *You can only connect actors. Not directors/writers/composers. Just ACTORS.
    *There are a million ways to link someone together. In the above one, I started out with 5 degrees, but then found a shortcut connecting two people and shaved off two degrees. There is no right or wrong answer.
    *Once you successfully link two people, create a new match.
    *For help, use websites like www.imdb.com or www.rottentomatoes.com.
    *Have fun!



    I'll start with an somewhat easy one.


    Liv Tyler and Dustin Hoffman.

    *AN OFF-TOPIC FROM THE GAME, BUT STILL SIX-DEGREES*

    The Six Degrees of Keith Richards

    My Dad had (I inherited) a classic Fender Stratocaster Guitar - one of the last made by Fender himself....

    Which prompted a call by THE Keith Richards when I was little asking if Dad would sell it to him. (Dad declined..but they did talk about guitar playing for quite a while)

    1n the late 1980's, The Rolling Stones played at the Hollywood Bowl, during which one of the cast of HUNTER, was in the opening band, which meant all of the people who worked on the show got backstage passes, which meant cause I worked on the show, I got backstage passes and this meant I got to meet Keith face to face.

    Saturday night, Pirates of the Caribbean: World's End Movie Premier...Keith Richards walked the Red Carpet, I got to walk the Red Carpet about 15 people behind him. AND Keith is the inspiration for Captain Jack, which is portrayed by Johhny Depp, who I met during his time on 21 Jump Street, who is one of my acting inspirations, and now one of my costume characters... who I get to see both of them on stage together at the premier...and in the film!

    And the final six degrees...Xavier Atencio who wrote the song and did the main voice for PotC the ride (which I was at during the original opening, and at the recent re-opening) looks exactly like my Dad..who started this all by having the Strat that Keith wanted to buy!!!

    AND now back to your regularly scheduled Six Degrees:D
