Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon Can Apply To The Madoff Scheme

By Can Tran     Dec 30, 2008 in Entertainment
In the case of the Madoff Scheme, it would seem that the game called “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” definitely applies.
In regards to Kevin Bacon, there is a trivia game called the “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” This stems from the possibility that any actor or actresses can be linked to actor Kevin Bacon through his/her film roles. However, it could also apply to people that are not in the entertainment industries.
The game originated in 1994 at the Albright College by: Craig Fass, Brian Turtle, and Mike Ginelli. The trivia had become quite popular. There were references of the game in the “Will & Grace” episode called “Bacon and Eggs” and the Visa check card commercial.
Outside the entertainment industry, this can very well be applied to the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Many people got ripped off and victimized in the Bernie Madoff scheme. So far, it has been revealed that actor Kevin Bacon and his wife actress Kyra Sedgwick were amongst the victims of the Madoff scam. They got scammed. In a sense, Madoff’s “Bacon Number” would be “one.” This is because Madoff would be one degree away from Kevin Bacon.
I can confirm that they had investments with Mr. Madoff – no further specifics or comment beyond that,” said Bacon’s representative.
