Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon (Redux)

Time to play again – this post was due over a week ago. Let me just start by asking is it me, or is this year flying past?

Jim (affectionately self-titled as The Movie Whore) left a comment on this blog a few weeks back regarding Jason Mewes, best known as Jay to Kevin Smith’s Silent Bob. Jim and his buddy had discovered how easy it was to link Mewes to Hollywood names in the tradition of the great Kevin Bacon. Which begs the question as to why I don’t change this game to Six Degrees of Jason Mewes…?

Anyway, linking Mewes to the big Bacon was quite easy – perhaps proving Jim’s theory. Mewes appeared in Kevin Smith’s Dogma with Matt Damon; Damon starred in The Legend of Bagger Vance with Charlize Theron; and the gorgeous Charlize had a role in Trapped with the fried Bacon (mmmm!).

Of course, if anyone can link these two in fewer moves, let me know. Suggestions for future Six Degrees posts here on the GritBLOG are also most welcome.

  1. Very interesting! I would love to see more of this concept. It seems that it really works. Hope all of you have a great week :)

  2. Sarah Michelle Gellar was in The Air I Breath with Bacon and in Southland Tales where Kevin Smith showed up and I can name about 8 or so movies that Kevin did with Mewes

  3. I found the post I did a year ago on the subject which you can find here.
