I'm a "Two"

One night a few months ago at work, I was chatting with my co-worker and friend Karol Kent, who's an actress, about the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The game's name was a spoof on the hit John Guare play (and later movie) "Six Degrees of Separation.

In "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon," you try to connect an actor or actress to Kevin Bacon within six steps. For instance, Blair Brown to Kevin Bacon would be "Continental Divide" with John Belushi to "Animal House," which Belushi appeared with Kevin Bacon.

As we talked, it dawned on me that Karol appeared with Bacon in the 2001 movie Novocaine, and I mentioned it to her. She replied "Yep-- Johnny, that's right; you're a 'two.'"

And that means that you're all "threes."

I'm a three anyway. One of roommates in college was Kevin Costner's stand-in in Field of Dreams and another of my roommates was an extra in the Untouchables. Costner and Bacon were both in JFK together. Yea for threes!

Steve did the titles for one of his movies, (Wild Things) and knows the director pretty well, so I was a three anyway.

I am three degrees of separation removed from President Clinton (referring to the general 6 degrees of knowning people, not just movie-Bacon).

The bad thing is that this connection goes through Monica Lewinsky.

I'm honored. I'm sure I wasn't even close - ever.
