This idea might bomb out, but I decided to try it out here anyway.
How about starting threads which explore the connections or "degrees of separation" between two entertainment notables. The connections would be by costars in film or TV, relatives by blood or marriage, or perhaps any other imaginative connection.

Post your entire string of connections from person A to Person B.

To start, I have randomly chosen this thread to examine the connection between Haley Mills and Sylvester Stallone.

Anyone game?
