Heath and Michelle = BBM

A double - good job, Chrissi! 

John Hawkes is in the upcoming "S. Darko," the sequel to "Donnie Darko"
"Donnie Darko" = JG = BBM

Next: John Hawkes. He's an easy one, but in his filmography I stumbled over a movie title which evoked BBM for me. Can you guess which?

 "A Slipping-Down Life" ?   :(

Now that's what I call a shortcut :laugh:. But fine with me.
JH was in From Dusk Till Dawn with George Clooney (and we know the rest, therefore it was easy).

Nope, that's not what I thought of. He was in a movie named "Blue Streak".


Next is still Gene Kelly

I thought that's what you meant by "easy one!"   :laugh:

Oh, great job on Gene Kelly, Elle - interesting trivia and a cool youtube!


Madeline Kahn was in "Paper Moon" with (a much younger) Randy Quaid = BBM!

Lynne and I are at my house together, cheerfully BetterMosting on our separate computers.  Here's my 6 degrees of Chazz Palminteri.  It doesn't count, but I thought it would be fun to both be looking at the same time:  Chazz Palminteri is going to be in the upcoming Cat Tale (2008) with David Cross (II) who played Allen Ginsberg in I'm Not There. (2007) which was Heath's 3rd to last movie.  Heath :: BBM

But, to do the next one:

Keanu Reeves is going to be in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009) with Winona Ryder who was in Little Women (1994) with Christian Bale, who was in The Dark Knight (2008) with Heath.  Also in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee (2009) is Monica Bellucci who was in The Brothers Grimm (2005) with Heath.  Either way, Heath :: BBM.

Next: Bruno Kirby

According to IMDb trivia, Adam Baldwin is good friends with Jamie Lee Curtis, Jake's godmother.  Jake :: BBM.  :)  But that's not via movies, BRB with another answer.


Adam Baldwin was in Le Divorce (2003) with both Naomi Watts, who was in Ned Kelly (2003) with Heath, and Kate Hudson (I), who was in The Four Feathers (2002) with Heath.  Heath :: BBM :: Heath.

Good work, Lynne!   That turned out to be tougher than I expected.

Humphrey Bogart was in The Harder They Fall (1956) with Rod Steiger who was in The Hollywood Sign (2001) with Whoopi Goldberg who was in The Player (1992) with Peter Gallagher (I) who sang the Brokeback parody song at the 2006 Independent Spirit Awards.  An unorthodox resolution, but fun.
