In a popular trivia game, every actor is linked by “six degrees” to which of the following men?
“Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” is a parlor game that is based on the idea that any actor in Hollywood can be connected to actor Kevin Bacon through a chain of co-starring roles in movies. The game, popularized in the mid-1990s, is predicated on the premise that anyone involved in the Hollywood film industry can be linked through their film roles to Bacon within six steps. The game’s name is a reference to the “six degrees of separation” theory, which asserts that any two people on the planet can be connected through six or fewer social connections.
The correct answer is Kevin Bacon.
