Six Degrees of James Bamford

When I saw that Stargate’s Mike Dopud would be appearing in Season 5 of Arrow I thought he might be the Canadian Kevin Bacon, so prolific that all other actors were within a few degrees of separation from him based on films they’ve been in. This led me to The Oracle of Bacon website where you can test it.

From there I pondered the extensive filmography of James Bamford and decided to test the degree of separation between James and Bruce Lee, James and Muhammad Ali and James and Angelina Jolie-Pitt. You’ll be surprised how low they were. Interestingly, his connection was through John Rhys-Davies for both Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali.

Even more interesting, James was directed by a man (Jeannot Szwarc – Fringe Back To Where You’ve Never Been) who also directed Bruce Lee in a TV show Longstreet – 2 degrees of separation!!
