Since we're already doing "Actor-Movie-Actor", I thought it might be fun to import the "six degrees" game from "IMDB". It's based on an oddball game called "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" (probably chosen because his name assonates with "separation"), in which you tried to connect Kevin Bacon to any other actor in Hollywood in six degrees or less. Every actor on IMDB has a "six degrees" thread, and I thought it might be interesting to take it one step further and chose ANY two actors at random and see if we can't connect them up. I know it's possible. I've seen Wilson the Vollyball connected with Osama Bin Laden so it can't be that hard.

So I'll start:

Bela Lugosi to Uma Thurman

Hmmm .. I can think of a few Bela Lugosi films, but I can't remember who else played in them. Sorry -- I guess I'm knocked out of this game on the first degree.

OK; I'll do it, just to give everyone the idea:

Bela Lugosi was in "The Raven" (1935) with Boris Karloff, who was in "The Raven" (1963) with Vincent Price, who was in "Edward Scissorhands" with Johnny Depp, who was in "Ed Wood" with Bill Murray, who was in "Mad Dog and Glory," with Uma Thurman.

How about:

Benicio del Toro and Diane Lane?
