The 6th Degree

- 5 Comment(s)

Sometimes I go crazy playing mini games of “Kevin Bacon is the Center of the Universe” inside my head. Only I never start with Kevin Bacon, because honestly, he creeps me out a little.

(too creepy!!!)--->

Instead, I start with someone I’m totally obsessing over at that moment. For example: Emma Stone.

And here we go!

Emma Stone is starring in the new re-hash of Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield, who was in The Social Network with Jesse Eisenberg who was in Zombieland with Woody Harrelson who was in Defendor with Kat Dennings who’s Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist Co-Star, Michael Cera, was in Juno with Ellen Page who has been in two movies with Rainn Wilson (Juno and Super), who was in The Rocker with Emma Stone.

I know I could have killed that twice since Emma Stone was ALSO in Zombieland with Jesse Eisenberg, AND in Superbad with Michael Cera… but I try to keep it going until I think of an obscure movie to end with. I also like to see the patterns, like the fact that three of the movies I mentioned are about superheroes (or people who THINK they're superheroes), that people FREQUENTLY confuse Michael Cera and Jesse Eisenberg due to their similar dead-pan and awkward delivery styles, and that Zombieland and Adventureland, both starring Eisenberg, came out in the same year.

Now Adventureland also stars Kristen Stewart, whose rumoured relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson has been fodder for rags for over three years… Pattinson was in Harry Potter with… Okay, okay. I’ll stop. But it’s totally a riot. We’d LOVE to see the 6 Degrees of Separation you guys come up with!

George Clooney directs and stars in the upcoming "The Ides of March" which stars Ryan Gosling. Ryan Gosling also recently starred in the fantastic 80's noir love letter, "Drive" which was directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. Refn in his early years also directed a small indie thriller by the name of "Fear X" which starred John Turturro in a great understated performance. Turturro, who is a fabulous character actor, starred in "Barton Fink" a great Coen Brothers film about a writer suffering from writer's block. The Coen's finally have made a number of films with a well known Hollywood actor, including my personal favorite "O Brother where art thou?" starring who? George Clooney.

Helen was in As Good As It Gets with Greg Kinnear. Greg Kinnear was in The Last Song with guess who: Liam Hemsworth!!

We would play this at mealtime- just start with a random actor and see how many movies we could name and then when we ran out of their movies we would go on to a co-star ---and start all over. I hope you do more of these.
