One Hundred Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Post by Ben Wilson » Tue Jul 23, 2013 8:39 pm

So my first one got cracked pretty quickly, then? No worries. Here's part 2, and just to make things harder, not only can you not use a movie twice, you can't use a movie from the same series twice. So if you use a Star Wars film, the other 5 are off-limits. Use a Lord of the Rings film, the other 2 AND the Hobbit are off-limits. As before, cameos and voice roles are accepted. All are welcome to have a go. Good luck. :-)

Jude Law -> Haley Joel Osment = A.I. I think
Bruce Willis -> Gary Oldman = 5th Element
