Six degrees of TRON separation game!

on Wednesday, February, 23, 2011 1:11 PM
Hi all!

I've been thinking about this for a while, it's a great way to test your movie knowledge and a little bit of fun.

The aim is to find some actor who seems to have no link with the TRON universe, and work your way back to TRON through as many others as you can to show that there are indeed only six degrees of separation between pretty much any actor ever, and our favourite universe! As an example I will start with Jeff Goldblum! He was in Independence Day with
Will Smith who was in Enemy of the State with
Gene Hackman who was in Superman and Superman II with
Terence Stamp who was in Priscilla: Queen of the Desert with
Hugo Weaving who was in The Matrix series with
Keanu Reeves who was in Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure with
Dan Shor who was Ram/Popcorn Co-Worker "Walter Dinsey" in TRON!

How far back can YOU go?

Damn, I was kinda hoping this would take off and I'd get to see what everybody comes up with. I suck at these things though so I'm not even gonna try. But you get points from me for bringing up Priscilla and Bill & Ted.

What do you want? I'm busy.


Program, please!


Chaos.... good news.

Same here! I step into TronSector every morning over breakfast, and I must admit I was very disappointed that no one else has yet tried it. Thanks for the feedback tho, Kat!

Unfortunately, I suck at this sort of thing too. Otherwise, I'd have been happy to play. Sorry.

YAY! Thanks! I do this ort of stuff all the time. I am not really sure why though. It is a more laborous process than going to the search bar and searching something.

Great challenge, but let's take it a step further: Can anyone link Dan Shor, Bruce Boxleitner, AND Jeff Bridges together?

I got two of em here:

Dwight Shultz (Murdock!) who was in Star Trek: TNG and Star Trek: Voyager
with Dan Shor, who played Arridor on both series as well,
with Patrick Stewart, who was in Star Trek: Generations
with Walter Koenig, who played on Babylon 5 (Shultz also made an appearance on B5, sheesh!)
with Bruce Boxleitner, Tron!

"On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy."

Wheres Jeff Bridges? OHHHHHHH lol also, on the original post, the popcorn guy isn't Walter. Walter is the older guy with the lase. Pop corn guy is Roy Kleinberg!

Almost - Walter Gibbs is the "older guy" played by Barnard Hughes. Before his name was retconned to Roy Kleinberg, Dan Shor's real-world character in the original Tron was jokingly called "Walter Dinsey" in the script!on line abortion pill misoprostol dose abortion medical abortion pill online

I know the guy with the laser is Walter Gibbs. I didn't SPECIFICALLY SAY Dinsey or Gibbs, so mwahahha! You have nothing on me!!
Haha I am just kidding. I love to be weird! I also knew that there were many un-official names for popcorn guy. I didn't think about the possibility until after I posted that.
