Six Degrees [1]
Totally stole this game off another site, but hey, it's a fun way to pass the time. The rules are simple: One person gives the names of two actors, and in six degrees or less the next poster has to find a way to connect them. Then they give two more celebrities, and so on and so forth.

Example: Angelina Jolie and Tom Hanks.
Angelina Jolie was in Tomb Raider with Daniel Craig.
Daniel Craig was in Casino Royale with Eva Green.
Eva Green *heart* was in Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom.
Orlando Bloom was in the Lord of the Rings trilogy with Liv Tyler.
Liv Tyler was in That Thing You Do with Tom Hanks.
Think you can do it? Try these two: Sarah Michelle Gellar and Johnny Depp.

James Dean to Uma Thurman in six steps (or less if possible)

masquerading rose 05-29-2007 11:33 PM

Uma Thurman was in Tsunami Aid: A Concert of Hope (2005) (TV) with Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow was in "One Tree Hill" (2003) {The First Cut Is the Deepest (#1.16)} with James Dean (I)

Dylan Sprouse and Justin Timberlake (yes, he's an actor)

MystMoonstruck 05-30-2007 01:56 AM

Aren't we supposed to be making movie connections? A concert wouldn't qualify. Also, James Dean is deceased; is there a new actor named James Dean? In addition, One Tree Hill is a series, not a movie. So, I don't consider the above an answer. Just because something is on tape or DVD doesn't make it a movie, does it? I wouldn't even count a TV movie actually, unless this version of the game has relaxed rules.

Can anyone do James Dean to Uma Thurman? This is the James Dean who was in East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause and Giant--THE James Dean. Accept no substitute. LOL!

masquerading rose 05-30-2007 02:23 AM

Sorry. I don't know who either of them are. I just put what I was told to put. But if a concert is on DVD or video, doesn't it count as a movie? My bad! oops. lol.

MystMoonstruck 06-01-2007 09:24 AM

I'll give one step as a clue:

James Dean was in Rebel Without a Cause AND Giant with Dennis Hopper.

There are at least five more steps to Uma, unless you can find a shortcut.

EDIT: No one has taken any guesses, so I suppose I should add two steps.

Dennis Hopper was in Speed with Keanu Reeves.
Keanu Reeves was in Point Break with Patrick Swayze.
