    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.

    Bruce Willis and Harlan Ellison--"Shatterday."
    Harlan Ellison and Shatner--"City on the Edge of Forever"

    (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.)

    Steve McQueen

    Did Ellison have a cameo in City?

    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.

    Since iamnotspock neglected to provide a new credit, allow me:

    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

    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.

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

    Uh, no, kind of more than that. Linky

    Oh, all right... :rolleyes:

    Vaughn Armstrong was in The Philadelphia Experiment with Glenn Morshower
    Glenn Morshower was in Star Trek: Generations with William Shatner

    Now, don't screw THIS one up:

    I give up. Who is Peter Cullen?

    (And nobody's biting at Steve McQueen?)

    Ah. Guess I need to bone up on my voice actors.

    Although I can probably be forgiven for not recognizing him as readily as, say, Bruce Willis or Keanu Reeves . . . or even Harlan Ellison! :)

    No, not really. Lots of TV. Only about 3 movies.
