    Can you link Ava Gardner to Kevin Bacon? List your entire movie star trail. Let's see who can do the shortest list...

    The name of the game is called Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. It is said you can tie any movie to Kevin Bacon using actors he starred with. It's called Six Degrees because you can do it with less than six movies.

    Example: Owen Wilson

    Owen Wilson - Meet the Fockers
    Robert De Niro - Meet the Fockers

    Robert De Niro - Sleepers
    Kevin Bacon - Sleepers

    I was able to tie Owen Wilson to Kevin Bacon thru actors both have starred with. This game can be played using any two actors. It does not have to be just Kevin Bacon.

    To answer the question,

    Ava Gardner - Priest of Love
    Ian McKellen - Priest of Love

    Ian McKellen - The Da Vinci Code
    Tom Hanks - The Da Vinci Code

    Tom Hanks - Apollo 13
    Kevin Bacon - Appolo 13

    How did I do?
