This is hard but fun, you have to connect two actors, directors, producers etc. You are only allowed six degrees of seperation and in theory any connection should be possible. For example if I want to connect Bruce Willis with Julianne Moore I could say.

Bruce Willis was in Die Hard 4.0 with Justin Long who was in Dodgeball with Vince Vaughn who was in The Lost World with Julianne Moore.

As you can see the above example is three degrees of seperation as I've had to take three steps to connect them both.

The person who makes the connection correctly suggests the next connection.

I'll start......this is an easy one. George Clooney and Cameron Diaz.

Peter O'Toole is in Stardust with Charlie Cox.

(As an interesting aside, I saw a play in a tiny theatre in London called Tis Pity She's A Whore (it's an old one). The theatre was like a garage with maybe 4 rows of tiered seating facing each other, and the actors on the ground between. I was on the front row. Towards the end, the main actor brings on a heart he'd supposedly cut from someone. The stage prop was clearly from the local butcher, but some on the other side got a little bloody. Anyway, the guy who played this murderous fellow, flinging pigs blood to all and sundry, was Charlie Cox. Nice to see he's breaking into the big leagues potentially!)

Patricia Heaton and Larisa Oleynik...
