Actor Kevin Bacon Plays Not My Job

Play associated audio

When he was just a teenager, Kevin Bacon left home to become an actor. And if our math is right, since that day he's done at least one movie every month. That's not all, though; he's recorded albums, inspired party games and even had a delicious pork product named after him.

We've invited Bacon to play a game called "Six degrees? Schmix degrees!" Bacon became famous for the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game (in which you name any movie star and link him or her to Bacon in six roles or fewer.) We'll ask Bacon three questions about even more unexpected connections.

This segment was originally broadcast on June 4, 2011.
