It's time to test your movie knowledge. Find the Bacon is a fun and user-friendly application tied into an online database of movie statistics provided by Freebase. Test your own knowledge, challenge a friend, or just look up interesting connections.

Based on the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game, you can start with actor Kevin Bacon or any other actor you can think of, and follow the chain of actors and movies for as long as you like, or challenge yourself by picking two actors beforehand and seeing if you can make the connection in less than six steps! There's also a handy "Make a Connection" mode, where you enter two actors, and the system will tell you how they're connected!

Kevin Bacon:

PreviewKevin Norwood Bacon (born July 8, 1958) is an American film and theater actor whose notable roles include Animal House, Footloose, Flatliners, A Few Good Men, Apollo 13, Mystic River, The Woodsman, Friday the 13th, Hollow Man, and Tremors.

He won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for his role as Lt. Col. Michael Strobl in Taking Chance and has been called one of the best actors never to have received an Academy Award nomination.

Bacon, one of six children, was born and raised in a close-knit family in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This mother, Ruth Hilda (nee Holmes; 1916-1991), taught elementary school and was a liberal activist, while his father, Edmund Bacon, was a well-repected architect. At 16, Bacon attended the Pennsylvania Governors School for the Arts, a state-funded five-week arts program which helped solidify Bacon's passion for the arts.

Bacon left home at age 17 to pursue a theater career in New York, where he appeared in a production of the Circle in the Square Theater School. "I wanted life, man, the real thing", he later recalled to Nancy Mills of Cosmopolitan. "The message I got was 'The arts are it. Business is the devil's work...'"
