    This is a game where you take an actor, and connect them through starring roles to Kevin Bacon - in no more than 6 steps!

    For example: Meat Loaf (not really an actor, but he has been in things)

    Meat Loaf-Tim Curry (Rocky Horror Picture Show)
    Tim Curry-Tom Cruise (Legend)
    Tom Cruise-Phillip Seymour Hoffman (Mission: Impossible 3)
    Phillip Seymour Hoffman-Meryl Streep (Doubt)
    Meryl Streep-Kevin Bacon (The River Wild)

    So, one person suggests an actor, and the person who gets it suggests another!

    Here's another: Richard Gere

    Richard Gere isn't hollow, he's full of hamsters. Edit: wait, no... my mistake, that's not true. it's gerbils


    :(

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    I see the Xander Berkley connection, but isn't that a bit weak? I mean, he was barely in A Few Good Men.

    I think it's better if it's a fairly big star in each connection, either first or second lead in the film

    Awww, don't do that. :(

    Richard Gere-John C. Reilly (Chicago)
    John C. Reilly-Kevin Bacon (The River Wild)

    Although I guess this game would probably be better irl, where people can't instantly look stuff up. Ah well.

    Ricky Gervais?

    Apparently the best actor to do this with is Rod Steiger.
    Most people in film history can be linked to him in about 3 moves (I think)

    Gervais-Jennifer Garner (Invention of Lying)
    Garner-Michael Clark Duncan (Daredevil)
    Clark Duncan- Tom Hanks (Green Mile)
    Hanks-Kevin Bacon (Apollo 13)

    Clark Duncan isn't really a lead though.
