Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Now Built Into Google

Briefly: File this under pointless but awesome. Google has upgraded their already impressive search engine to now figure out Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Yes, the game that surmises any actor can be connected to Kevin Bacon in six movies or less (because Kevin Bacon has been in so many movies and worked with so many people) is now more than a conversational time-killer. Just go to Google, type in an actor’s name and the phrase “Bacon number” and let the fun begin.

If you head to the Hollywood Reporter or New York Magazine you can read more about how it works. But doesn’t this kind of take the fun out of the game?
