    How are you connected to Kevin Bacon? I thought for sure if I put Jun Falkenstein in there I'd get a connection (Me -> Ben -> Jun). She directed Tigger Movie, which has fucking John Hurt in it. If he's not connected to Kevin Bacon I would be very surprised.

    If you were in The Grind: 3 Minutes, then at worst your Bacon Number is 4, because you starred alongside...

    1. John Bain, who had a VA credit in Awesomenauts with...
    2. Brian Stivale, who had an uncredited appearance in Nocturnal Animals with...
    3. Laura Linney, who starred in Mystic River with...
    4. Kevin Bacon

    If you want to use the director link (rather than the traditional actor link) then yeah, Jun gives you a 3 (edit: unless you haven't actually worked with her directly, and instead are using me as a link to Jun, which puts you at 4 instead):

    1. Jun Falkenstein directed The Tigger Movie starring...
    2. John Hurt, who starred in Jayne Mansfield's Car with...
    3. Kevin Bacon

    By default it will only compare actors, if you click "More options" and select directors and producers, than you'll get a connection:

    I feel like the Oracle site used to use data from IMDB instead of Wikipedia. This version is less "complete" than I remember.

    Also, I've got no idea how you did that:

    Jun did voice act in the Roberto Halloween Special, so there's that. Looks like Robert Moran has an IMDB page as well, but didn't seem to do anything with anyone of consequence.

    I went to camp with W.W. Vought who wrote When Trumpets Fade starring Ron Eldard who was in Sleepers with Mr. Bacon.
