You know the drill - you get it, you start the next one. It must be EXACTLY 6 steps.

Alec Guiness -> Kevin Costner

Alec Guinness starred in The Ladykillers with Peter Sellers
Who appeared in Dr. Strangelove which was Directed by Stanley Kubrick
Who directed Tom Cruise in Eyes Wide Shut
Cruise appeared with Jason Lee in Vanilla Sky
Who appeared with Morgan Freeman in Dreamcatcher
Who co-starred in "Robin Hood prince of thieves.."
Kevin Costner!


Since I'm guessing this challenge is recursive.

Get from Zach Braff -> Billie Piper
TSP: I saw a giant poster for Lost today. The castaways all seemed extremely dismayed that their prom had been gatecrashed by a burning airliner.

Woody Allen doesn't go to the Oscars. (he goes to some bar in New York instead)
One of which was won by Michael Moore last year
for his film Bowling for columbine, which features the killing of children

Damn. I don't know where I was going with this. This is harder than it looks!

Woody Allen starred as the voice of Z in Antz alongside Sylvester Stallone
Who, in Demolition Man, played the Character John Spartan
The Spartans being the ones who recently went to war over a woman in Troy which starred Brian Cox

Who was in Bridges of Madison County with Meryl Streep

Now show me Sean Connery to Roger Moore WITHOUT mentioning Bond at all :P

I wasn't going to post this, but seeing as it's already been denied:

Elija wood was actually in back to the future part 2. Crispin Glover was played by a lookalike in part 2, because he demanded too much money.

Clint Eastwood starred in Space Cowboys with Donald Sutherland
Who has been in practically everything, including The Italian Job wtih Charlize Theron
Who was in the Cider House Rules with Michael Caine
Who was in The Actors with Miranda Richardson
Who voiced a character in Chicken Run alongside Mel Gibson
Who was in "What Women Want" with Marisa Tomei

OK, now Seth Green -> Alan Tudyk (without using a Joss Whedon show, because that makes it ridiculously easy).

However long you spent doing that it doesn't matter. Josh was wrong.

OK. Sean Connery was in Untouchables with Robert de Niro.
De Nero found himself alongside Billy Crystal for Analyse This 'n' That
Billy Crystal in turn took on Monsters Inc., and found himself face to face with John Goodman...
who himself was in for a shock when O Brother Where Art Though found him the company of George Clooney.
George Cooney took staring role in the remake of Ocean's Eleven, the original of which was performed by various members of the Rat Pack, including Sammy Davis Junior
Sammy Davis Jnr also starred in Cannonball Run, with none other than... Roger Moore

Now. Clint to Marisa, which TSP has dealt with, so, in credit: Seth Green -> Alan Tudyk

teehee, Sean Astin's Orange ad is genius, especially when he jumps off the chair and is only hobbit-sized :D.

Ahem okay, lets give one of these a go.

I'll do the Sean Connery -> Roger Moore one, since this hasn't be solved.

Sean Connery was in Finding Forrester with Busta Rhymes
Who 'stared' in the film Dude...We're Going to Rio
Which was the sequel to Dude...Where's My Car
Which featured Jennifer Garner as quite possibly the love interest
Who played a Nurse in Pearl Harbour along side Cuba Gooding Jr
Who, among many other crap films, stared in Boat Trip, which featured (what I hope was just a cameo) from Roger Moore

Booya!

And I can't think of one, so just go on with what TSP suggested.

In response to TSP's attempt at making a hard one.

Okay It's a cheat, there's only five degrees, but I think I did bloody well considering how little Alan Tudyk has done.

Seth Green was in IT with
William B. Davies who was the Cigarette Smoking man
Who appeared with Adam Baldwin in The X files
Who co-starred with Will Smith in Independance Day
Who is now co-starring in I,Robot with Alan Tudyk

Now kids, get from Angelina Jolie > Patrick Troughton

I don't think you should be allowed to cheat after the one you set. Took me a good half an hour, and that was with extensive IMDb searching. :P

Come on. Seth Green gives you the entire Buffy franchise to work with (Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan in particular), along with Austin Powers. If you can get Sarah Michelle Gellar to Will Smith in 4 degrees then you've solved it, and there are no issues in that about how little they've each been in. :P

Edit: wait - just seen that he said no Joss Whedon. Well, you've still got Austin Powers.
End of line.

Seth Green was in Austin Powers, who parodied themsleves at the start of Austin Powers 3 with an all star cast including Danny De Vito playing Mini-Me

Who had previously played the Penguin in Batman Returns where Michael Keaton donned the black cape.

However he passed on the role of Dark Knight to Val Kilmer

Who subsequently had his own dastardly duo of Batman villains in the shape of Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones

Who in Men in Black was K to Will Smith's J.

Who this year will be starring in I, Robot with Alan Turdyk


Oh and the previous effort was only 4 degrees of seperation.
But now you can show me Keanu Reeves to Alex Winter with any mention of Bill S Preston Esq or Ted Theodore Logan :P

Yeah, restricted that because then it was a simple matter of the Seth Green -> Joss Whedon -> Alan Tudyk link and padding it out a bit. Which was too easy.

Keanu Reeves started in The Devil's Advocate in which Al Pacino played the eponymous Devil
Al Pacino co-stared in 1973's Scarecrow with Gene Hackman
Who was in Enemy of the State with Will Smith
Who got trained in the ways of the Men In Back by Tommy Lee Jones
Who played one of the villains in Batman Forever which was directed by Joel Schumacher
Who also directed The Lost Boys which featured Alex Winter.

There! Phew!

I wonder how people did this before imdb came along??

Just wondering how other people do this, I've found it easier starting with the person you're supposed to link to and working backwards.

um, well I've no idea if they do - but the theory is that everybody is connected like this, so Alec Guiness -> Cameron Diaz
