    By the way, rather than finding short routes to Kevin Bacon, I think we should find the longest possible routes to him, the longer the better. What do you think?

    Steve Buschemi was in Mr. Deeds with Winonna Ryder
    Winnoa Ryder was in Zoolander with Ben STiller
    Ben Stiller was in Something about Mary with Matt Dillon
    Matt Dillon was in Wild things with Kevin Bacon

    Next up is : Kevin Smith (aka Silent Bob)

    Talon: That is a good idea, it is a lot harder to get 6 movies than 4, im up for the challenge even though i didnt do it here...

    uh, there was a shorter route from Katherine Hepburn to Kevin Bacon but we were supposed to find the longest route possible, no?

    Actually, you do want to find the shortest route possible. The trick is finding an actor or actress that does not have a short route, meaning someone who cannot be linked to Kevin Bacon in 1, 2 or 3 steps.

    This is very, very difficult to do. For instance, the example of Katharine Hepburn used above could actually be done this way:

    Katharine Hepburn was in Love Affair with Tom Signorelli
    Tom Signorelli was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon

    So Ms. Hepburn has a Bacon number of 2.

    What I am suggesting is that you find actors and actresses who end up having numbers of more than 2 or 3. So, yes, the long way, but out of the minimum number of movies.

    Ah, forget it. Play on!
