who doesn't love bacon...

kevin bacon...that is. today we're playing six degrees of kevin bacon. for those of you who don't know how to play, here are the rules. based on the six degrees of separation theory, any two people can be linked by six degrees. apparently kevin bacon has been in so many movies that any actress or actor can be linked to him in six degrees or less. you can link any actor or actress as long as they've been in a movie together (no outside of movie references will count...ex: marriage, dating...) for instance...if the person was jennifer grey, we could link her to patrick swayze in dirty dancing, patrick swayze to tom cruise in the outsiders, tom cruise to kevin bacon in a few good men.

this one might be the easiest movie trivia yet. anyone who answers gets 2000 pts for each question as long as they don't answer exactly the same as someone else. it's a good way for those of you who are low on the ranking pole to get some easy points. remember, no cheating! using the imdb to look up your answers constitutes as cheating! you have to rely on your own brain. here goes...

1. katie holmes

2. ashton kutcher

3. elvis pressley

4. joaquin phoenix

5. matthew perry
