    Six degrees of Star Wars

    I hope this isn’t too “five minutes ago” but that dopey Visa commercial with Kevin Bacon has brought up that whole “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” game again. I was just thinking about being able to link each major Star Wars actor independently of each other without using any of the SW movies as a link. I can do a few, but I think some are rather impossible. I’m going to try to do this without help of any outside aids, like imdb.com. If I come up short, maybe someone can fill in the blanks or find a shorter route. No cheating!!

    Instead of doing the ‘so and so was in blank with so and so’ format, I’m just going to list the actor, then the linking movie, then another actor, etc…

    Original Trilogy
    Carrie Fisher – The Man With One Red Shoe – Tom Hanks – Apollo 13 – Kevin Bacon
    Harrison Ford – The Fugitive – Tommy Lee Jones – JFK – Kevin Bacon
    James Earl Jones – Patriot Games – Harrison Ford – etc.
    Billy Dee Williams – Nighthawks – Sly Stallone – Rocky – Burgess Meredith – Grumpy Old Men – Jack Lemmon – JFK – Kevin Bacon
    Yoda (Frank Oz) – Trading Places – Dan Akroyd – Blues Brothers – John Belushi – Animal House – Kevin Bacon
    Warrick Davis – Willow – Val Kilmer – Top Gun – Tom Cruise – A Few Good Men – Kevin Bacon

    Episode One
    Liam Neeson – Schindler’s List – Ben Kingsley – Sneakers – James Earl Jones – etc.
    Ewan McGregor – Moulin Rouge – Nicole Kidman – Eyes Wide Shut – Tom Cruise – etc.
    Ray Park – X-Men – Halle Berry – Monsters Ball – Billy Bob Thorton – Bandits (I think that’s the name; it’s the one where they find money in the snow) – Bill Paxton – Apollo 13 – Kevin Bacon or X-Men – Ian McKellan – LOTR – John Rhys-Davies – Raiders of the Lost Ark – Harrison Ford – etc.
    Samuel L. Jackson – Goodfellas – Joe Pesci – JFK – Kevin Bacon
    Natalie Portman – Mars Attacks! – Jack Nicholson – A Few Good Men – Kevin Bacon
    Jake Lloyd – Jingle All The Way – Rita Wilson – Sleepless in Seattle – Tom Hanks – etc.

    Episode Two
    Christopher Lee – LOTR – John Rhys-Davies – etc.

    Try as I might, I can’t come up with any links for Mark Hamill, Alec Guiness, Peter Mayhew, David Prowse, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker, Ian McDiarmid, Jeremy Bullock, or any of the other people from the five movies. Good luck.

    Now it's so obvious. I totally forgot about McDiarmid in DRS and Kenny B. in Time Bandits. You can also link Sean Connery through Harrison Ford in Indy 3.

    I remembered Mark Hamill was in Corvette Summer, but I couldn't think of any costars.
