The Degrees of Seperation

Tools    





Alright guys, this is a new game

I give you an actor or actress name and you have to link it to another one I give you

For Example, if I were to do Billy Bob Thornton to Brad Pitt, this is how it would be:

Billy bob thornton starred in Bad Santa, which starred Lauren Graham, who stars in Gilmore Girls, which guest starred Adam Brody, who was in Mr and Mrs Smith, starring Brad Pitt.


And to kick it off

Link Ben Affleck to Mischa Barton



RULES
1: Whoever figures it out, must construct another link thats actually possible to do, like I did with mine (I already know the answer to my above link)

2: And if you can't figure it out, then say so and I will give the answer and start another one

enjoy!

First of all, you aren't supposed to use TV shows for this game (most definitely not actors who may have guest starred in only one or two episodes), only feature film credits.

Secondly, in the link you tried to form between Billy Bob and Pitt you could have simply used Angelina Jolie as the only link - Thornton co-starred with her in Pushing Tin, Pitt in Mrs. & Mrs. Smith.

Thirdly I'm sure there are other degrees of separation games in the games forum.



RULES

All links are possible. Even if the actor had only appeared in one film and you had to make ten or fifteen links, you can link any actor to any other.

2: And if you can't figure it out, then say so and I will give the answer and start another one
Most will have many, many, many answers.

Such as...

Ben Affleck to Mischa Barton can go:

Ben Affleck was in Armageddon with Bruce Willis
Willis was in The Sixth Sense with Barton

or

Ben Affleck was in The Sum of All Fears with Bruce McGill
McGill was in Lawn Dogs with Barton

or

Affleck was in Glory Daze with Sam Rockwell
Rockwell was in Lawn Dogs with Barton

or

Affleck was in Changing Lanes with Toni Collette
Collette was in The Sixth Sense with Mischa Barton


And on and on and on.



Enjoy!

They had temporarily escaped the factories, the warehouses, the slaughterhouses, the car washes - they'd be back in captivity the next day but
now they were out - they were wild with freedom. They weren't thinking about the slavery of poverty. Or the slavery of welfare and food stamps. The rest of us would be all right until the poor learned how to make atom bombs in their basements.

OR

Will Smith was in Six Degrees of Separation with Donald Sutherland
Donald Sutherland was in Fallen with Denzel Washington

And even using your first link Gene Hackman, Hackman and Denzel co-starred in Crimson Tide...so your chain was needlessly complex.


And just so you know, these games generally only allow you to use actors as links, not directors, composers, writers, etc.



Dakota Fanning to Owen Wilson
Dakota Fanning was in Man on Fire with Christopher Walken
Walken was in The Wedding Crashers with Owen Wilson



Claude Rains to Michael Caine

Dakota Fanning was in War of the Worlds with Tim Robbins who directed Cradle Will Rock which starred Bill Murray who is also in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, among other films, together with Owen Wilson.

well seeing how i was the one who started it, i think i can change some of the rules and add directors to the mix too to make it a little different

just stop it already, i dont comment on you being an annoying *******

I also told you there are multiple existing threads of this game elsewhere on the forum. HERE for example.


And you don't get to post a new couple, as you haven't answered the Stroheim to Kier pairing yet.

That's quite an attitude toward world cinema.

And I didn't name them, Genius. That was Pidzilla's post you are slamming. So you just got here and already I'm an ******* and Pidzilla is a jerk. You must have read How to Win Friends and Influence People.


anyway, tom cruise to justin long
Anyway, still Erich von Stroheim and Udo Kier.
