Must've been a slow day at Google's, but now you can enter an actor's name followed by bacon number and you'll get the degrees of separation between them.

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is a variation on "six degrees of separation" which posits that everyone in the world is no more than six acquaintance links from anyone else on Earth. That idea moved into the pop culture mainstream when it spawned a popular play and movie by the same name. It later morphed into a parlor game, wherein movie buffs challenge each other to find the shortest path between an arbitrary actor and the amazingly well connected Hollywood veteran Kevin Bacon.
