    Take a movie, then choose any actor/actress/authors in it (let's avoid directors, producers, etc) and connect them to someone in a Star Wars movie in six movies or less. It's not a contest, so either be as concise as you want, or be creative and use all six to show off your movie, TV, and book knowledge!

    For example, the movie is Big Trouble in Little China.

    1. Kurt Russell was in Big Trouble in Little China and he was in Executive Decision with Steven Seagal.

    2. Steven Seagal was in Under Siege with Tommy Lee Jones.

    3. Tommy Lee Jones was in The Fugitive with Harrison Ford who was in Star Wars.

    Ta-Daaa! Now you get the idea. After you've made your connection, name another movie for the next visitor to do!


    Let's start off with
    Top Secret!

    Ok let me see if I got this right:

    1. Val Kilmer was in Top Secret!, and then he also did the movie Batman Forever with Jim Carrey.

    2. Jim Carrey did the movie The Mask with Camreon Diaz.

    3. Camreon Diaz did the moive Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise.

    4. Tom Cruise did the movie Rain Man with Dustin Hoffman.

    5. Dustin Hoffman did the movie Tootsie with Genna Davis.

    6. Genna Davis did the movie The Long Kiss Goodnight with Samuel L. Jackson who was in Star Wars.

    Next one start with the movie: Pitch Black

    I didn't wanna do pitch black, but I got something better: linking a PT actor/actress to an OT one!

    1. Michelle Pfeiffer was in What Lies Beneath with Harrison Ford.
    2. Al Pacino was in Scarface with Michelle Pfeiffer.
    3. Robert DeNiro was in Godfather Pt. II with Al Pacino
    4. Jean Reno was in Ronin with Robert DeNiro
    5. Natalie Portman was in The Professional with Jean Reno.

    Harrison Ford and Natalie Portman were both in Star Wars movies (OT and PT respectively).

    On Top Secret, I was thinking more along the lines of this:

    Top Secret had Omar Sharif
    Omar Sharif was in Lawrence of Arabia,
    which had Alec Guinness who starred in Star Wars. :D
