Thought it would be a good time-killer to start a six degrees of separation game.

Basic rules, name any two actors, and someone has to try to connect them through other actors within 6 people.

No tv appearances allowed.

Only actors can be used, so you can't say Actor A was directed by Spielberg who directed Actor B.

Credited performances only, so no quick two second cameos in a movie that were used as a punchline.

So to start off:

Christian Bale to Adam West
