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)

I'll let this one slide for a bit because I've been given it before. But just to set the bar, it can be done in 4 steps.
