4. Gary Busey:

See # 3.

5. Reese Witherspoon:

Reese Witherspoon to Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line

Joaquin Phoenix to Mel Gibson in Signs

Mel Gibson to Helen Hunt in What Women Want

Olympia Dukakis to Tom Skeritt in Steel Magnolias

Tom Skeritt to Tom Cruise in Top Gun

8. George Clooney:

George Clooney to Julia Roberts in Ocean's 11

Julia Roberts to Tom Skeritt in Steel Magnolias

Tom to Tom

Tom to Kevin

9. Patrick Dempsey

Ok. I don't watch Grey's Anatomy so is this the guy you were talking about, Kelly? If so .. here goes. If not, then he's an extra:

The only movie I remember him being in was Mobsters ... it was a baaaaad movie but oh well... and the only person I can think of in that movie other than him was Christian Slater... Patrick to Christian

Christian to Winona Ryder in Heathers

Winona to Alec Baldwin in Beetlejuice

Alec to James Earl Jones in Hunt for Red October

JEJ to Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams

Kevin to Kevin in JFK

10. Danny Bonaducci

Ok, I have to admit this one has me REALLY stumped. I can't think of one single movie where I have seen Danny, so I am going to try this from the television angle, at least at first to get Danny out of tv.

Danny Bonaducci to David Cassidy in The Partridge Family

And that is where I get stuck. I just don't know enough about the Partridge Family. I know that Shirley Jones was the mom, and I am sure that she appeared in an episode of two of The Love Boat. But even trying to get THAT connection out of there is too hard. I will have to think on this one. So I will admit defeat on this one.


Ok. I think I have this one figured out. I did have to cheat just once ... to see if I knew that this person was actually in this movie. So this one really can't be claimed a victory, I don't think.

Danny to Shirley in the Partridge Family

Shirley to Gavin McLeod (isn't that him ... Captain Steubing) on The Love Boat

Gavin to Mary Tyler Moore in The Mary Tyler Moore Show

MTM to Elizabeth McGovern (this is where I cheated) in Ordinary People

Elizabeth McGovern to Kevin in She's Having a Baby

There. I did it.

11, 12, and 13 I will play tomorrow with people you, my readers shout out to me. I am tired. It is late, and I intended on being in bed over an hour ago.

Wow, how long did it take you to come up with that (scary thought, I don't think it took you very long)
Happy TT!

Honestly, I did a few mentally ahead of time (Sissy Spacek took me some time, really). The others I did on the fly last night. And it took me about 45 minutes with the thinking and the typing.

The Danny Bonaducci one still bugs me. Wasn't he on one of those VH1 reality shows,too? I know that Shirley was on at least one Love Boat, but I would have to link her through the regular cast because that is just unfair to link her through the whole show when she might not have been in an episode with that person.

i have to go find the link, but my alma mater UVA did an online game to see if you could enter someone with more degrees of separation to Kevin Bacon. The highest i ever got was 3!

Nobody can top you at this OWN it!

Oh, this is FUN! The Bacon Oracle actually lists Danny Bonaduce with a Bacon Number of only 2... but I'd never seen either movie.

OMG, you thought all that through? Yikes, no wonder you are tired, well, and you're a wife and mommy.

Blogger Knitting Maniac said...

Darla! Are you SERIOUS? I have to go check that out and bow down to the prowess.

Blogger Pass The Torch said...


Yes, that's the guy. I do watch Grey's anatomy and obviously didn't know his name (duh).

And I realized later my George Clooney suggestion was WAYYYYY too easy;)

By the way, how is it a person can be hooked on Battlestar Galactica, yet NOT WATCH GREYS ANATOMY???

Okay - answering my own question. They're probably not all that much alike...

Wow... how you keep up with all that is beyond me :-).

Blogger Knitting Maniac said...

Stephanie, it is called worthless information recall. Seriously. I will be talking to friends, and I have to preface EVERYthing with about 5 minutes on why I decided to talk about that particuar subject before I even get into the subject itself. I am sure many of my friends just want to throw a rope into my mouth and drag out the information themselves.

Blogger The "Mind" said...

Woohoo! You do rock. And I don't mind that you fudged a bit on Danny Bonaducci.

And yes, he's on a VH1 reality show. He might have been on more than one, but I caught 5 minutes (I was sucked in, like watching a train wreck) of Breaking Bonaducci where his wife kicked him out.

Anyhow, bravo!

I didn't do a TT this week, but I have a great post dedicated to Pman.

Congrats on this site. I�ve been looking in several places for good content. I have found many sites but most don't really have a lot of in depth information. I am very new to the web and am still getting the hang of things on where to find the best sites. I am trying to get this arai motorcycle helmet site going myself and could use some feedback. I'll keep going over your site and learn what I can about good layout and site construction, blended with good content. If you have a few minutes feel free to stop over at my site and see what you think and offer any advice you think of.
