Kevin Bacon Turns 50 Today!



Sexy actor Kevin Bacon turns 50 today!

Kevin has been in tons of films over his career. In fact, he inspired a film buff's game called Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon which has been used as an example of Web 2.0's ability to connect people by degrees of separation. Kevin did not like the game at first, but being the good guy that he is, now has a web site for charitable causes based on this- http://www.sixdegrees.org/



I think that he will be best remembered for playing the high school student who upsets the sensibilities of his baptist town in the 1984 hit Footloose shown below.
