GAME: Six Degrees of George Clooney

Post by Missa on Sun Aug 05 2012, 01:38

Everyone knows the premise of the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, right? Kevin Bacon can be connected to anyone in Hollywood in six steps or less. With George's long, eclectic career, I think the same is probably true of him. How the game works: one person comes up with a famous Hollywood name; the next person describes the connection chain to George, and picks another name to keep the game going. So for example, if I said "Susan Sarandon", the answer could be "Susan was in Dead Man Walking, which was directed by Tim Robbins, who was in The Shawshank Redemption with Morgan Freeman, who was in Invictus with Matt Damon, who was in Oceans 11 with George." Four steps!

Okay, first person, we'll start easy: Robin Williams.

Who's game? Very Happy

You did it right!

Tom Hanks was in "Philadelphia" with Denzel Washington, who was in "The Bone Collector" with Angelina Jolie, who was in "Mr and Mrs Smith" with Brad Pitt, who was in Ocean's 11 with George Clooney. ( I have a feeling those Ocean's movies, with their ginormous casts, are going to prove very helpful for this game Very Happy )

Yup, you definitely need to be up on your Clooney-ography to even have a shot in this game. Although, like I said, there's enough people in the Ocean's movies that, if you've seen them all, you have a fighting chance. Smile

Here's a little bit of fun.....



Watch your back, Kevin Bacon. All of this year's Academy Awards acting nominees can be connected to George Clooney -- himself a lead actor nominee for the film "The Descendants" -- through three or fewer film or television productions.

Can you guess the connections? Scroll through to see our six-question quiz on George Clooney and his fellow Oscar nominees; you'll find the answers at the end.
