7 Degrees of Harry Potter
« on: February 11, 2005, 04:39:19 PM »

OK, we all know the 7 degrees of Kevin Bacon game - lets try it with Harry Potter.  Someone will put out the name of an actor/director/composer, and we have to tie that person to the Harry Potter movies within 7 steps.  To keep the postings easy to read, follow this format:

Name of suggested person: ________________________
Degree one:
Degree two:
Degree three:
Degree four:
Degree five:
Degree six::
Degree seven (include this person's tie to HP):

If anyone is able to satify the link before the third degree, then there may be points involved. 

I will start:

Name of suggested person: Brad Pitt
Degree one:
Degree two:
Degree three:
Degree four:
Degree five:
Degree six::
Degree seven (include this person's tie to HP):

I think he is a great choice - by the way - 5  points to Ping - Ping - since you are the universal contant - do you want points for making the connection withing less than the required number  of connections or do you just want recognition for being great?
