Wow.

Even Steve-O from the Jackass franchise has a Bacon Number of 2. I guess if the whole movie and singing-with-your-brother thing ever falls flat Kevin can start a new career on MTV getting whacked in the groin with a rake handle.

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

I have a "Bacon Number" of 3.

I've personally met, touched, and hugged Jewel Staite...

Jewel was in "Serenity" with Nathan Fillion.

Nathan Fillion was in a movie called "Super" with Kevin Bacon.

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

I have a Bacon number of 2 when it comes to meeting President Bill Clinton and a 3 in the case of James Doohan. I also know someone who met and talked to Bill Murray when he was in my area filming a movie a number of years ago, and Bill was in Wild Things with Kevin Bacon. That also gives me another number 3.

We need to face facts. We've all been Baconized. Kevin Bacon is in us all.

Wait. That didn't sound right. Ah, screw it.

Re: Google adds Bacon numbers

Hrm... A few years ago William Rufus Shafter was an 11, then fell to 10, and now to 7.

This brings up an interesting project for someone who had access to the Bacon engine. Use each movie's release date to calculate the change in the universe of Bacon numbers over time (which is constantly shrinking), and make a Youtube clip of it, perhaps with ominous music or a narration by someone who does science documentaries for the BBC, or even Kevin Bacon himself.

Unfortunately we don't have enough data to create a system that includes screen time, or shared screen time (X had a 1:52 second scene with Y, who shared 7:52 seconds with Kevin Bacon).

I found a few 2's when I'm sure they worked with Kevin Bacon.

Yeah, he played bad guy Sebastian Shaw in the X prequel film.

Coincidentally, his character was named in tribute to the late actor who played the original Anakin Skywalker at the end of Return of the Jedi. So even the STAR WARS universe is just 2 degrees removed from Kevin Bacon.

Impressive. Most impressive.

^Especially considering Harrison Ford was in Raiders of the Lost Ark with Karen Allen who was in Animal House with Kevin Bacon.

Roman Gabriel has a Bacon Number of 2. So do Noble Johnson and Dweezil Zappa.

William S. Hart is only a 3, as are Rondo Hatton and Dwight Frye.

Mark Twain has no Bacon Number.

That's sad, but the good news is:

Jerry Hardin's Bacon number is 2
Jerry Hardin and Kathleen Quinlan appeared in Warning Sign.
Kathleen Quinlan and Kevin Bacon appeared in Apollo 13.

Oh, I don't know - seems to me he's done pretty well without one.

But then, so is Hal Holbrook's:

Hal Holbrook and Chris Penn appeared in The Florentine.
Chris Penn and Kevin Bacon appeared in Footloose.
