Kevin Bacon on the Late Late Show: Plays 'Who's Your Co-Star' with James Corden

Posted on

Could you recognize someone you barely knew over 20 years ago?

James Corden posed this question to Kevin Bacon Monday night on the Late Late Show in a new segment called Who’s Your Co-Star? The goal of the game was to see if Bacon could recognize a costar who delivered one line in A Few Good Men, over 20 years ago.

Bacon is famously known for working with an assortment of actors over his career, even inspiring the game “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” He admitted in the interview that he’s forgotten who he’s worked with before. I’ll go to Google and you can put in their name plus Bacon number and that will tell you how many degrees of separation they are,” Bacon told Corden.

Presented with a lineup of potential costars, Bacon took some time to study their varied appearances and tones, going so far as to look at their facial hair and how they delivered their one line.

Watch the clip above to see if Bacon guessed correctly or if he never truly knew his costar at all.
