    I'm stumped. Neeley was Jesus Christ, Superstar, right?

    That's all I know. I confess I couldn't name another credit for him if my life depended on it . . .

    Yes, Neeley played Jesus in Jesus Christ, Superstar.

    The link I found was:
    Neeley > Django Unchained > Samuel L. Jackson
    Jackson > Loaded Weapon > Shatner

    Well, he says defensively, "Brad Kane" isn't exactly a household name. :)

    As for Bob Denver, I can get to Shatner via Gilligan's Island, but I confess I can't think of any movies featuring Denver.

    Wasn't Denver in a western? (he asked without cheating) Maybe with the Duke?

    ETA: OH GOD! It just came to me: Oh God!

    I haven't looked for a connection, but Denver has been in:

    Back To The Beach (A guilty pleasure of mine.)
    Did You Hear the One About the Traveling Saleslady?
    The Sweet Ride
    Who's Minding The Mint?
    For Those Who Think Young
    Take Her, She's Mine
    A Private's Affair


    At least one of those movies has a big name star. And yes I had to go to IMDb to find that list, I knew only Back To The Beach. Except for BttB all those movies were before Gilligan's Island. Type casting is a real bitch.
