Do we like trivia games on this board? I don't remember.

Connect 2 actors in 6 links or less.
Solver gets to name the next challenge.
Must use films to connect. Sole exception for TV shows is Firefly.
If actors are directly connected through Firefly/Serenity, at least one connection must be outside of these.
Actors shall have actually appeared in the film, so Alan in I, Robot would not count, nor Tim Allen or Tom Hanks in Toy Story.
If no valid answer after 3 days, the proposer may post the solution, and post the next challenge.
Preferably one of the actors will have some connection to Firefly/Serenity, or at least Whedon or alumni. If using only Firefly as the sole TV connector becomes too restrictive, future games may include other Whedon shows: Buffy, Angel, SHIELD, Dollhouse.

Example: Nathan to Adam Baldwin
1. Nathan and Barry Pepper in Saving Private Ryan.
2. Barry and Graham Greene in The Green Mile.
3. Graham and Mary McDonnell in Dances With Wolves.
4. Mary and Adam in Independence Day.

First one: Nathan Fillion to Gina Torres.

I enjoyed watching Sean Maher and Jennifer Connelly in The $treet. As a TV show, it is not a valid connection or "degree."

Number 2: Jennifer Connelly to Sean Maher.

Jane Espenson has a show called Once Upon a Time, starring Jennifer Morrison. Previously Jennifer spent some time in House with Olivia Wilde. As a TV show, it does not count as a connection.

Number 4: Jennifer Morrison to Olivia Wilde.

Recently I saw Missi Pyle guesting on L&O:SVU, which was once a series where Christopher Meloni starred.
Connecting these two would be quite easy (Meloni, Willis, Rickman, Pyle or Meloni, Morse, Nicholson, Pyle) but if we require the solution to use an actor from the Firefly/Serenity rolls, it can add a degree or 2.

Number 5: Missi Pyle to Christopher Meloni. Within 6 degrees, and must include at least one actor from Firefly/Serenity cast rolls.

There seems a large faction of Fireflyfans who dislike Tom Cruise. Perhaps they are joined by Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes. Connect them with at least one connection in the Firefly/Serenity cast rolls.

Number 7: Nicole Kidman to Katie Holmes, including at least one connection via the Firefly/Serenity cast rolls.

Along with Firefly, Sci Fi royalty includes Star Wars. When Episode One came out, Natalie Portman was one of my possible castings for Padme. But playing the "same role" was somebody I had not heard of before, but have enjoyed since. Kiera Knightly. Connect them through an actor from the Firefly/Serenity cast rolls.

Number 10: Natalie Portman to Kiera Knightly, not using a Star Wars connection, but including somebody from the Firefly/Serenity cast rolls.

Gee whiz. I did not plan that challenge in advance, but it seemed a reasonable and doable one. Now I realize that I found over a dozen solutions without much effort. Don't recall ever finding that many possibilities before.
