Fun Friday: (Kevin) Bacon Numbers via Google

Have you ever played the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" game?  The object is to tie another actress/actor to Kevin Bacon in fewer than six "degrees" or steps.  For instance, Marlon Brando is two degrees from Kevin Bacon:  Marlon Brando and Robert Duvall appeared together in The Godfather, and Robert Duvall and Kevin Bacon were both in appeared in Jayne Mansfield's Car.  

Well, Google takes the fun out of it.  Enter an actress/actor's name in Google with "Bacon Number" after the name, and the search behemoth will do all of the work for you.  Give it a try!  And put your most interesting examples in the comments.
