6 Degrees of William Shatner

It's 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon only we connect people to the Shat instead.

Rules are simple:
1. Theatrical movies only and casting credits only.
2. IMDB, wikipedia, etc to be used for dispute resolution only. (No real way to enforce this, but it makes the game more fun.)
3. When you post an answer you also post the next actor to challenge everyone.
4. Mods delete this sucka and accpt my apologies if it violates a rule I missed. I haven't visited this forum in a long time.

I'll start. Kevin Bacon

Kevin Bacon was in Wild Things with Bill Murray.
Bill Murray was in Osmosis Jones with William Shatner.

2 degrees.

Keanu Reeves.

(Oh, just to show off, you can do Keanu in two steps. He was in SPEED with Sandra Bullock, who did MISS CONGENIALITY with Shatner.)

No, but he wrote it and Shatner starred in it. Seems to me that counts as a connection.

And once again the poor writers never get any respect.

Seriously, I missed that part. Oops.

Let's see.

Vaughn Armstrong alongside Scott Bakula in Enterprise.

Scott Bakula alongside William Shatner in Boston Legal.

(Alternatively, could go with Rene Auberjonois in DS9 and BL)

So, back to Greg Cox and his suggestion

Steve McQueen

Sorry - missed that bit. I think I've seen Vaughn Armstrong in a film, but none are coming to mind right now

Re: 6 Degrees of William Shatner

Writers get much respect from me, but I limited it to appearances (including voice work) in theatrical movies just to make it more challenging.

I thought it'd be too easy with all of TOS, etc to choose from.

I suppose if there's clearly and presently a danger of the thread dying from people being stumped, a peak at IMDB might be OK.

Re: 6 Degrees of William Shatner

I had to give in and look. Vaughn's only been in like 3 movies his entire career.
