    Ok I got really hooked on this game recently and I thought it would be fun to play here since we're nerds anyway. Basically someone comes up with an actor and you then have 6 movies to link that actor to Kevin Bacon. For example: Edward Norton

    Edward Norton was in The Score with Robert Dinero - 1 who was in Analyze This with Billy Crystal - 2 who was in America's Sweethearts with Julia Roberts - 3 who was in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon - 4.

    There are quicker ways to get from an actor to Kevin Bacon, but that was an example. So let's have the person that solves the link choose the next actor. This can be really fun and challenging sometimes. Try not to cheat and use the internet. (HINT) 3 MAJOR Kevin Bacon movies are A Few Good Men, Apollo 13, and JFK. You can get a lot of big actors from those 3.

    Ok I'll start it easy for the rookies: Chris Tucker

    CHRIS TUCKER:
    chris tucker was in "the fifth element" with Bruce willis (1) Bruce Willis was in "The Jackal" with Richard Gere (2) Richard Gere was in "Runaway Bride" with Julia Roberts (3). Julia Roberts was in "Flatliners" with Kevin Bacon.

    Chris tucker to Kevin back in 4 movies.

    OK THIS IS ANOTHER EASY ONE (and he also is the best Star Wars character, in my opinion anyway.):
    Harrison Ford

    By the way Johnny, Ian McKellan was not in any Starwars movies. He has been in around 62 movies dating back to 1965 in "The trial and torture of".
    Who you are meaning is Ian McDiarmid.

    Woah, that even felt Geeky...
