Does Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Still Work?

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon 1 of 12

In case you may have forgotten, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, the game that hypothesizes "Kevin Bacon is the Center of the Universe," is still alive and kicking. Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon first made waves back in 1994 when a group of Albright College students stumbled on the mind-blowing phenomenon, and Google re-fueled the fire in 2012 by adding a "Bacon number" function to its search capabilities.

Kevin Bacon has appeared in seemingly anything and everything, including 'Footloose,' 'Animal House,' 'JFK,' 'Flatliners,' 'Mystic River,' 'Crazy, Stupid, Love,' and countless other movies in a career spanning five decades. Now that he has the new Fox series 'The Following,' it's as good of a time as ever to revisit the phenomenon.
