Google adds Bacon numbers
 
Just type a celebrities name and add "bacon number" and Google will give you their Bacon number, and how they connect to Kevin Bacon.

This will change the Internet forever.

Almost everybody I tried was 2 or less. Kind of scary.

Finding the highest Bacon number, could be a game in itself.

Highest I found was Liam McIntyre from "Spartacus: Vengeance" at 4.

Peter Garrett, Aust Education Minister and former lead singer for Midnight Oil - no number

Colin Friels, Aust actor - 2

Jack Thompson, Aust actor - no number (which is odd, considering he was in Star Wars 2 and Midnight In The Garden of Good and Evil and Broken Arrow).

Leonard Nimoy - 2 (though it's a cheat because it's based in Star Trek having Greg Grunberg, and Grunberg was barely in it, only his voice, and deleted scenes don't count).

Frazer Hines doesn't have a Bacon number! However given Patrick Troughton has a 3, that must mean he's a 4!

Kyra Sedgwick is an obvious 1.

Sticking with the Doctor Who theme, Jon Pertwee & Colin Baker are 3's, but Tom Baker & Sylvester McCoy are 2's.

The TNG cast are all 2's.

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers
 
I've actually met Kevin Bacon, so "virtually" you're all number 2. ;)


(unless of course the "bacon number" implies that you need a professional connection!)

Centuries from now, anthropologists are going to look back at us and think we have some weird obsession with cured pork.


Oh wait...


I admit this is really fun though!

I like this one:
http://oracleofbacon.org/

It uses IMDB as a source.

My 11-year-old-niece, Caroline Rosenblum, is an aspring actress; she's done some short films, and has an IMDB entry. So Oracle of Bacon can tell me she has a Bacon number of 3; Google Bacon didn't.
