    Hey all, I've been thinking about this for a while now and have been trying to test it out a little bit in my mind before posting it, but I think it may actually work out pretty well. So let me explain if you didn't figure it out from the topic name;

    Since the Roseanne show had a ton of guest stars, future stars, etc. I thought it might be fun to try to play the "Kevin Bacon" game with this show. Basically, person A will name an actor (hopefully not too obscure, otherwise it may not work!) then, person B will look through movies and find actors that the person has been in movies with to try and make a connection to someone on the Roseanne show. Whoever figures it out will then post the next actor to be connected to. Sound complicated? Let me give an example.

    Person A says "Robin Williams"

    Roseanne - Martin Mull
    Martin Mull - Mrs. Doubtfire - Robin Williams

    Mrs. Doubtfire starred Robin Williams, so there is an easy connection. But you can do as many steps as you want, so say person A says Gary Oldman instead. Person B might put it together like this:

    Roseanne - Martin Mull
    Martin Mull - Mrs. Doubtfire - Pierce Brosnan
    Pierce Brosnan - Goldeneye - Robbie Coltrane
    Robbie Coltrane - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - Gary Oldman

    See? It took a few more steps, but hopefully it makes sense to everyone.

    I know this is like borderline off-topic, but since we are always stemming from Roseanne, I think it's fair play, right? Well, lets give it a try, if nobody likes this game then it will be laid to rest.

    So I'll start.

    Make a connection to Kate Winslet

    Since Leonardo DiCaprio was on a Roseanne episode, you could connect to Kate to Roseanne through Leonardo and "Titanic".

    Heist81:  What a terrific idea for a new game!  Thanks!

    Tom Hanks was in the film, Apollo 13 directed by Ron Howard aka Opie Taylor (The Andy Griffith Show)-- Roseanne said, "I've been fired by Opie!" when she lost her job at Chicken Divine.

    Next:  Clint Eastwood  (I had originally put Meryl Streep, but there's no round-about connection there-- Roseanne co-starred in the film, She-Devil, with Meryl Streep)

    Jake Gyllenhaal was in a movie with John Lithgow called "Homegrown".

    Roseanne guest starred in an episode or two of "Third Rock" with Lithgow.

    It helps to have the answer beforehand but if someone can figure it out and surprise you, that's ok too. I'll try this one a little later.
