Tonight we will be playing one of my favorite games ever – the Kevin Bacon game! Except we won’t be using Kevin Bacon because he’s been done to death. Instead I’m picking actors, pretty much at random, for you to link together. In my version of the game you are not limited to movies, you can choose from movies, TV, or even stage, everything is fair game.
If you haven’t ever played the game, the object is to link two actors through the movies they have done with other people. For example, if you want to get from Kevin Bacon to Roberto Benigni you could say, Kevin Bacon was in JFK with Gary Oldman, Gary Oldman was in Bram Stoker’s Dracula with Winona Ryder, Winona Ryder was in Night on Earth with Roberto Benigni. Got it? Good. Here are your choices:
John Belushi to Ben Stiller
Pauly Shore to Naomi Watts
Lucy Liu to Woody Harrelson
Tim Curry to Janeane Garofolo
I haven’t made these connections yet, so good luck. And feel free to make your own suggestions in the open thread. :)
