      You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

        Jonny Lee Miller

        was married to Angelina Jolie, daughter of John Voight. John Voight was in Midnight Cowboy with Hoffman. Buffy quotes Hoffman in MC in Gone. (Apparently, AJ is Whedon's fantasy woman. He modelled WW on her: “For me, Wonder Woman was basically Angelina Jolie,” I'm throwing that one in).

                  I'd be lost in this if I couldn't search for help. I often have a connection or two but need to find the rest to get them to fully link. Unless they're short, like having seen Richard Blackwood in Crystal Maze.

                    was in Dangerous Liaisons, an updated adaptation of Las Liaisons Dangereuses.

                    SMG was in Cruel Intentions, an updated adaptation of Las Liaisons Dangereuses. Don't know if it was the same character - haven't seen CI.

                      It's the same character. But isn't this pushing it a bit? Do actors playing the same characters in literary adaptations really count?

                      Not really. I think we're pushing it a little with voice acting too - you don't know that they ever met. At least there's a reasonable chance if they were in the same episode. Having physically met should be the aim I think.

                          I can't do anything with this last question without Wikipedia or IMDB, because I have no idea who Hayley Mills is. But hopefully someone else does and will do it!

                          I know her mostly as a child star from films of the 1960s, but I think she has continued to act. She's the daughter of Sir John Mills.

                          EDIT: She must have as Pitching In that Pricey used is a recent tv series.

                        This is a long and convoluted one, but it is 3am . . .

                        Hayley Mills was in Pitching In with Larry Lamb
                        Larry Lamb was in Our Friends In The North with Mark Strong
                        Mark Strong was in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy with Toby Jones
                        Toby Jones was in Wayward Pines with Reed Diamond
                        Reed Diamond has been in so many shows with BtVS alum but I'll go with Dollhouse, created by Joss Whedon

                            Agents of SHIELD was created by Joss Whedon, even though he had nothing to do with it by the time Hannah was on the show. But the showrunners were Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, Joss' brother and sister-in-law and also formerly showrunners of Dollhouse.

                            Next: Christopher Meloni

                                If we count voice acting Christopher Meloni was in an episode of Family Guy with Seth Green, but I'm never sure whether to count those as I don't know if they tend to record individually??

                                But if it'd be accepted, next: Winona Ryder

                                  And also, he was on Oz with JK SImmons, who was on Veronica Mars, although only in the dreadful Hulu revival, but VM has all the Buffy links I mentioned.

                                  Fab. I reason anyway, even if he didn't meet Seth he will have met others involved who Seth deals with too, so at most there is one further step in there with the members of a show's team/producers.
