Architeuthis is Only Separated By 3 Degrees from Kevin Bacon

So all day long after the previous post I wondered, how separated is Architeuthis and Kevin Bacon?

As you might remember although the Giant Squid had some cameos in previous B movies, it really was not until 1954 in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that Mr. G. Squid hit the big time. In this movie, the Giant Squid shared the screen with Kirk Douglas who played Ned Land.


Kirk Douglas was in Tough Guys (1986) with Eli Wallach


Eli Wallach was in Mystic River (2003) with Kevin Bacon

  1. Craig, mate, you have it the wrong way round – Kevin Bacon is three degrees of separation from Architeuthis. Perhaps by moving closer, do you think Kevin could raise his acting ability…? See if you could organize a meet…you know, get his people talk to the squid people…do lunch etc. etc. etc.
