Blogathon: Six Degrees of Separation

KK-6d0sWHAT IS SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION. There is a theory that everyone and everything is connected within six or fewer steps away. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare, Six Degrees of Separation (and later inspired a 1993 film under the same name). This blogathon is based on this theory. It will test your knowledge of actors/movies and directors. You will get two names of either actors/actresses/directors or movies and what you will have to do is make a link between them within six steps or less.

CREATOR: Nostra from the myfilmviews was inspired to do this blogathon. He kindly tagged me along with 5 other bloggers to do this blogathon. View his masterpost.

HOW DOES IT WORK? This is a relay blogathon, so at the end of this post i would tag one (1) blogger to connect the my end result to another film/person i assigned, and s/he can passed it along to another blogger, and so forth.
