Officially, the most common “Bacon number”—Google’s designation linking any actor with Kevin Bacon—is three out of six. (We were hard-pressed to come up with anyone higher than a two. Buddy Hackett? Bela Lugosi? Danny Bonaduce? Jean Harlow? Two.) Bacon’s accepted his cult status with good humor, and even leveraged it to start the nonprofit SixDegrees.org. But as an actor, Kevin Bacon is no joke, with more than 30 years of solid performances in comedies (Diner), musicals (Footloose), dramas (Apollo 13) and thrillers (Cop Car, in theaters August 7).
