Bacon Numbers and Lots of Other Trivia
The 'Bacon' Number... this is the number of times an actor has been in a movie with KEVIN BACON! Actually, it's a little more complicated than than. It can also represent who played in a Bacon movie with someone who worked with that actor. Think of it as a 'cousin twice removed' kind of thing and you've got it.
