Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

The Oracle of Bacon at Virginia

He’s never been nominated for an Oscar, but Bacon has achieved a kind of immortality—based on the premise that he is the hub of the entertainment universe. That odd theory was developed by Mike Ginelli, Craig Fass and Brian Turtle who invented a game that swept through college campuses and the internet before becoming a board game and a book called “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.� The idea is to connect Bacon and any other actor through the films or television shows the two have worked on in no more than six steps.

The Oracle says: Snoop Dogg has a Bacon number of 2.
Snoop Dogg was in Pauly Shore Is Dead (2003) with Sean Penn
Sean Penn was in Mystic River (2003) with Kevin Bacon

Type in any actor's or actress' name and be prepared to be amazed at the 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon
