  • Six degrees into the Buffyverse

    Okay, so this is a simple game (in theory, let's see how it goes). One person names an actor/celeb and the next person has to find a link from that actor to the Buffyverse in a '6 degrees of separation' way. So, in six steps or less.

    For example, I just randomly picked Angelina Jolie to test it out on...

    Angelina Jolie - Brian Thompson
    1 - Angelina Jolie was married to Brad Pitt
    2 - Brad Pitt worked with George Clooney in Ocean's Eleven
    3 - George Clooney worked with Djimon Hounsou in ER in 1999
    4 - Who worked with James Spader in Stargate
    5 - Who worked with Lance Henriksen in The Blacklist
    6 - Who worked with Brian Thompson (Luke/The Judge) in The Terminator

    Okay, so the next person to randomly try to find a link back to BtVS/AtS for is - Kevin Costner

    I always presumed the answer to any "Six Degrees" puzzle was either God or Jesus but here goes.

    1. Kevin Costner starred in Waterworld.
    2. Joss Whedon worked on Waterworld.
    3 Joss Whedon created Buffy,

    Randomly - Jamie Foxx

    Is that what you wanted?

      Yes. Any connections that lead to BtVS or AtS within six steps. I suppose you could have done it in one step and just made the connection to Joss. I didn't know he worked on Waterworld.

                        Anthony Hopkins was in Thor; Dark World and Ragnarok. As was Hemsworth who was also in Avengers/Ultron (so repeat any of the MCU "six degrees" above).

                        Javier Bardem.

                        Stoney You could have had Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Junior in The Soloist - then MCU etc. I think MCU is the new Jesus.

                          MCU will definitely appear plenty, but you can try to avoid it and find a different route.

                            My husband pointed out I could have gone straight from David Tennant to ASH as he was in an episode of Dr Who. Ah well, I liked my route more because I got to include Charles Dance.

                                LOL! I can't decide whether that's clever or desperate. When do we get to second cousins twice removed once sat next to each other on a train? See below.
