Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

It's not entirely accurate.

It says that Lon Chaney Sr. is 3 degrees from Bacon because both he and Kenneth Branagh appeared in The Unknown, over 30 years before Branagh was born

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

It gave Neil Armstrong a Bacon number of 3 (I think), but IMDB said the movie Google credited to Armstrong had a cast of two, and Armstrong wasn't one of them.

ETA: The movie they credit him is "Falling". I did find a google for "Do you think I'm falling in love" - dj Neil Armstrong, or some such thing.

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!)
Cool, I'll get myself an eyepatch...

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

We're ALL within six degrees of Kevin Bacon by now. Literally. If you've ever met Bill Clinton that puts you two degrees away from about ten thousand different celebrities of all shapes and stripes.

This is Kevin Bacon's world. We're just sizzling in it.

Well, I've met James Doohan...and his Bacon Number is 2.

Doohan--->Bibi Besch(TWOK)---> Kevin Bacon(TREMORS).

Doesn't seem to work with international versions of Google as I'm not getting anything but news stories about this when doing a search.

And we'd better not egg him on. Or we'd get toasted!

Jon Hamm and Kevin Bacon need to make an anti vegetarian movie called "Bacon and Hamm"

Justin Bieber's Bacon number is 4.

For some reason it makes me happy that his number is relatively high. He is not worthy of the Bacon.

"Kevin Bacon's number is 0."



Whew. For a moment I thought I'd open a rip in the fabric of space-time and destroy the entire solar system.

Wrong movie, but apparently Kenneth Branagh narrated a documentary about Lon Chaney called "A Thousand Faces" in 2000.

Ah. Found an error. I ran Gabriel Iglesias, and it came up with 2:
Gabriel Iglesias and Demi Moore in Magic Mike;
Demi Moore and Kevin Bacon in A Few Good Men.

But Demi Moore WASN'T in Magic Mike. I even checked IMDB to be sure. So--completely wrong there.
