Six Degrees of River Phoenix to X-Men's Jean Grey
Contest Hosted by Joe Crowe, June 17, 2003

Four Degrees:

River Phoenix was in Sneakers with Dan Akroyd who was in Tommy Boy with David Spade who was in PCU with Jon Favreau who was in Made with Famke Janssen who played Jean Grey. I think that's 4. It's still early. (thespider817@yahoo.com)

Yes indeed. Early enough for the Wheel of Pain!

And make it snappy! That thing's not going to push itself.

Three Degrees:


...but I'd prefer a flesh coat, rather than a throne of skulls if at all possible...

River Phoenix as Young Indy in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Ford was alongside Samuel L. Jackson in Patriot Games.

Halle Berry was Vivian in the movie Jungle Fever with Samuel L. Jackson as Gator Purify.

Halle Berry brilliantly played Storm with the beautiful Famke Janssen as Dr. Jean Grey in X-Men and X2.

TAKE THAT YOU LAZY DYING POND SCUM! (pennyc@ameritech.net)

Such hubris for only 3 degrees! But hubris is only a problem if you get to be proud of it.

River Phoenix was in "My Own Private Idaho" with Keanu Reeves. Keanu Reeves was in "The Replacements" with Jon Favreau. Jon Favreau was in "Made" with Famke Janssen (Jean Grey).

Do I get to keep my cool skull throne? (jedidave@hotmail.com)

The skull throne is Indeed yours to keep. But hose it down regularly.

River Phoenix was in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade with Sean Connery; Connery was in Goldfinger with Desmond Lwellyn; Lwellyn (who played Q in the first 20 Bond films) was in Goldeneye with Famke Jannsen, who of course was Jean Grey in the two X-Men movies. (naguscook@aol.com)

Two Degrees:

River Phoenix was in the TV miniseries Robert Kennedy & His Times ('85) with Mimi Kennedy, who was in Immediate Family ('89) with Venus Terzo...who plays Jean Grey in X-Men: Evolution. (crow_steve@hotmail.com)

River Phoenix was in Explorers ('85) with Mary Kay Place, who was in A New Life ('88) with Catherine Disher...who played Jean Grey in the Fox X-Men animated series. (crow_steve@hotmail.com)

River Phoenix was in The Thing Called Love with Gregory Alpert, who was in The Gingerbread Man with Famke Jannsen (who played Jean Grey in the movies). (naguscook@aol.com)

River Phoenix was in Running on Empty with David Margulies, who was in Celebrity with Famke Janssen - Jean Grey of the X-Men movies. (crow_steve@hotmail.com)

When you said this would be easier, you weren't kidding.

River Pheonix was in Stand By Me with Wil Wheaton of Star Trek: The Next Generation. ST: TNG also starred Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Xavier in the X-Men movies, which included Jean Grey, of course. I can't remember the name of the actress who played Jean Grey, but I made the connection anyway. (mntlward42@earthlink.net)

River Phoenix was Jimmy Reardon in "A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon", in which Ann Magnuson played Joyce Ficket

Ann Magnuson also played Ms. Steinbacher in "Love & Sex" with Famke Janssen as Kate Welles - and Famke Janssen, of course, is Phoen- um, I mean, Jean Grey. (elsofer@jonesday.com)
