Remember that game where you figure out the number of degrees of separation between some celebrity and Kevin Bacon? Well, now Google has a search function that will do it for you. It’s called “Bacon number.”
Type Bacon number and some celebrity’s name into Google and you’ll instantly get that person’s Bacon number. I tried some names I thought were pretty far from connected to Kevin Bacon and couldn’t find anyone with a number higher than 2. Here are some examples. Click on a thumbnail to embiggen.
IMDB shows 74 titles in Kevin Bacon’s filmography. That must connect him to absolutely everyone.
Go try it. It’s fun. If you get a number higher than 2, please share who it was.
