This one is always a favorite when we have some down-time at work. The goal is to link up two actors/actresses using the movies that they have been in. And of course, you have to go through Kevin Bacon.

I.E.

Link Tom Cruise to Penelope Cruise
Tom Cruise was in "A Few Good Men" with Kevin Bacon (1 step)
Kevin Bacon was in "Murder in the First" with William H. Macy (2 steps)
William H. Macy was in "Sahara" with Penelope Cruz. (3 steps)

First person to come up with a correct link, gets to post the next one. I'll start.

Helen Hunt to Jodie Foster. (One of my favorites because I used to always confuse these 2 actresses, while not being too difficult.)

Are we allowed fothcoming movies? If so:

Nicole Kidman is appearing in "The Golden Compass" (2008) with Kevin Bacon. (1 step)
Kevin Bacon was in "Mystic River" (2003) with Emmy Rossum. (2 steps)
Emmy Rossum was in "The Day After Tomorrow" (2004) with Ian Holm. (3 steps).
Ian Holm was in "The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001) with Sean Bean (4 steps).

If this is cheating, I will humbly eat a shoe in penance.

How about Laurence Olivier to Tom Cruise?

No fair, all three were in "Pizza Boy Backrubs: Best of 1979". Bacon's the only one who never changed his last name, that's all...

*ahem* I believe we were on Sir Laurence to Tom Cruise. As you were!
