Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a variation on "six degrees of separation" which posits that any two people on Earth are, on average, about six acquaintance links apart. That idea moved into the pop culture mainstream when it spawned a popular play and movie by the same name. It later morphed into a parlor game, wherein movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between an arbitrary actor and veteran Hollywood character actor Kevin Bacon

The Bacon number of an actor or actress is the number of degrees of separation he or she has from Bacon, as defined by the game.

The higher the Bacon number, the farther away from Kevin Bacon the actor is.

Google is taking part in this game.

Type in a name of any actor or actress followed by the words "Bacon Number" to receive their number.


For Example...

If you type in Johnny Depp Bacon Number.... you will get

Johnny Depp's Bacon number is 2
Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter appeared in Dark Shadows.
Helena Bonham Carter and Kevin Bacon appeared in Novocaine.


From what I have read... the highest known Bacon Number is 8.

The highest I have seen is from...

Roger Clemens's Bacon number is 4
Roger Clemens and Barry Bonds appeared in MLB Superstars Show You Their Game.
Barry Bonds and Robin Williams appeared in Up for Grabs.
Robin Williams and John Lithgow appeared in The World According to Garp.
John Lithgow and Kevin Bacon appeared in Footloose.


What are some odd Bacon Numbers you came up with?

Or what is the highest you found?

Post your results!!!!
