Okally-dokally, I'll take a crack at these....

SHAKESPEARE:

  • - The film SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE featured Gwyneth Paltrow.

    - Gwyneth played the elf-queen Galadriel in FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING.

    - FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING featured an ultra-mega-supersquid.

"WACKY WALL-WALKERS":

  • - Spiderman could certainly be classified as a Wacky Wall-Walker.

    - Spidey's other nemesis (besides Green Goblin) is Doctor Octopus.

How'd I do?

Wasn't that Cate Blanchett?

How about: Gwyneth in Shakespeare In Love, with Geoffrey Rush; Rush in Pirates of the Caribbean with Orlando Bloom; Bloom as Legolas in LOTR with the übersquid?

Aaargh, you're right! I can't help it, though -- all pale, ethereal, sylphlike screen goddesses look alike to me. Come to think of it, so do all pale, ethereal, sylphlike screen gods. Too anemic, if y'ask me.... why send out all those wispy Elven types against an army of Uruk-Hai, when Queen Latifah and The Rock coulda singlehandedly body-slammed all them nasties to a pulp?

Anyway, Kat, thanks for your quick "save" of the solution. And while we're on the subject, here's one that Gollum would classify as "tricksy" (actually it's got nothing to do with LotR, I just thought that was a cute word :biggrin2: ). It begins with a character actor whose most famous portrayal is close to my heart, namely:

JOHN RATZENBERGER in 6 degrees, none of which involve animated features.

Testing, one two three.... testing, one two three.... Hello? Is this thing working? Is everyone asleep on this thread? Wake up! Here's the solution:

  • - John Ratzenberger was in CHEERS with Rhea Perlman

    - Rhea is married to Danny DeVito

    - Danny was in ROMANCING THE STONE with Michael Douglas

    - Michael is the son of Kirk Douglas

    - Kirk was in 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA with You-Know-What
OK, so that's only 5 degrees. So sue me.

I hereby demand that someone other than Yours Truly come up with the next "Six Degrees to a Ceph" puzzle. If I get no response within a week, I will slither around on the other threads pouring Ex-Lax randomly into your krill buckets.

:twisted:

OK.

Phil Collins - Tarzan soundtrack - Minnie Driver (voice of Jane)
Minnie Driver (voice of Lady Eboshi) - Princess Mononoke - Jada Pinkett Smith (voice of Toki)
Jada Pinkett-Smith - marriage - Will Smith
Will Smith - Men In Black - catches the squid baby

Or (this one's for Tani):

Phil Collins - Tarzan - Minnie Driver
Driver - Good Will Hunting - Matt Damon
Damon - Dogma - Alan Rickman (or Linda Fiorentino, to link to MIB)
Rickman - Galaxy Quest - those squid things

:tentacle:

Have we tried Madonna?

Tintenfisch,

Sorry, but I really can't stand Madonna. Irrational disdain for pop-stars, you know how it is.

:wink:

Deep breath:

Jelly Roll Morton -> played with -> Zutty Singleton
Zutty Singleton -> acted in Stormy Weather w/ -> Cab Calloway
Cab Calloway -> acted in Blues Brothers w/ -> Carrie Fisher
Carrie Fisher -> appeared in Star Wars w/ -> garbage compactor Ceph

:heee:

And now, ladies & gentlemen, for my next act, Phil Collins in less than 3:

Phil Collins -> appeared in audience of Hard Day's Night w/ -> The Beatles
The Beatles -> sang -> do I even gotta say? :roll:

jetlee,

That is awfully damn impressive, Sir. When I invoked Mr. Morton's name, it was only as a response to Tintenfisch's nickname for me ("Jelly Man"). I never intended to relate Mr. Morton to a cephalopod, let alone the dreaded dianoga.

Well done.

Why thank you Kat, I'm glad somebody here remembers that Steve-O' isn't the only one around with, shall we say, needs. :mrgreen:

I'm very impressed with the flood of Six Degrees contributions and answers we're getting now. Madonna joke.... :roflmao: Apropos of nothing, here's one I heard back when they were popular:

  • - What's the difference between Charlie Chaplin and Madonna?

    - The Little Tramp is one of the most beloved characters in entertainment history; Charlie Chaplin is an old-time movie comic.
:P (Don't blame me, I didn't write it.)

May I ask, how did Clem earn the "Jelly Man" title? Sounds intriguing!

Many thanks. Not that I had any help on that one. Nope!

(Lee starts to smell fire & brimstone)

Ack! Ok! I confess! I had some e-help! I just wanted to see if it could be done! :cry: :cry: :cry:

Ahh. My conscience is clean once again. :heee:

Tani,

You asked how Clem became "Jelly man". He's afraid of jellyfish, as perhaps we all should be. But Clem avoids them more than most, and he's probably better off for it. I got stung twice this summer because I'm not enough afraid of them and went right back in. :bonk:

We should go to Chinatown to eat them, if you are up for the trip!

You refer to the Freddie Prinze Jr. masterpiece?

Brittany Murphy (I think she was in it, never actually saw the movie)
to Michael Douglas in "Don't Say a Word"
to Kirk Douglas in "It Runs in the Family"
to "20000 Leagues"

Argh, got kicked off while posting.

Here goes another:

Summer Catch
Brittany Murphy > Clueless (Tai Fraiser) > Breckin Meyer (Travis Birkenstock)
Meyer > Rat Race (Nick Shaffer) > Rowan Atkinson (Enrico Pollini)
Atkinson > Black Adder > Tony Robinson (Baldrick) who says ‘This is my magnificent octopus’ meaning magnum opus. :octopus:

:heee:
