The closest I can come to saying I have a relative who's well known for being on-screen is my cousin Ken Farmer, one of the most well known appraisers and personalities on PBS's Antiques Roadshow.
Cool. My mom loved that show.

Christopher Lloyd has a bacon number of 1. They appeared together in Tremors V.
Google must have mixed something up there, since Tremors V never got made. Lloyd was in the short-lived Tremors TV show in 2003 with Michael Gross from the movies, so he would have a Bacon Number of Two unless there was something else he was in with Bacon that I'm not aware of.

Weird. Yeah, I'd say this thing definitely has bugs, enough that it can't really be relied on. I know Google doesn't use IMDB for its data, and uses its own system instead. But it sounds like it loosely correlates any data and matches by keyword. So, when it can't find any definite data, it matches with whatever closest it can find.

Ok, crosschecked with IMDB, Bill Murray is a 1. He appeared in Wild Things with him.
