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)

Anikka,

Jerry Lewis to Oliver Platt (Funnybones)
Oliver Platt to Kevin Bacon (Loverboy)
Kevin Bacon to Luke Wilson (My Dog Skip)
Luke Wilson to Jason Horgan (Scream 2)
Jason Horgan to Peter DeLuise (Southern Heart)

Now the challenge:
Leonardo DiCaprio will be playing the role of Theodore Roosevelt in the 2008 Scorsese flick, "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt".

Can you link Leonardo to Francis J. Noonan, who played a youthful Teddy Roosevelt nearly 90 years ago?

(Bonus Points if you can link Robin Williams to the actual President Theodore Roosevelt starting with "Night at the Museum")

Now, see, Jesse...I didn't use Countess because he only did a cameo in it. That'll show me!!

If it helps, he also wrote and directed Countess. I figure it evens out to a fair link.

I know, but I didn't think writing/directing would count. Otherwise, I would have used it. But, you know, I wouldn't have made the connections you did, and it would have only saved me one link.

Also, you did my Jerry Lewis to Peter DeLuise chain in less links than I used. I suck at this game. :-D

I only bring up the writing/directing credit to justify using the cameo. Otherwise I never use it.

I used to work a twelve hour shift six days a week; we played this game for HOURS.
