Six Degrees of Richard Armitage?

I had one of those weird little brain quirks today.  I was talking with an Armitage friend about football…European and American…during which I mentioned my local team, maybe you’ve heard of them? 


The Green Bay Packers are currently at the top of their division with a 4-0 record.

That tripped my brain into a weird sequence of thoughts culminating in whether I could link Richard Armitage to the Green Bay Packers a la Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.  (I get Armitage to Bacon in three…Armitage stars with Shaun Parkes in Strikeback, Parkes appears with Brendan Fraser in the Mummy Returns, and Fraser stars with Bacon in The Air I Breathe.  Three degrees.)

Well, slightly longer to the Packers but here goes:


1. Two time NFL MVP Packer quarterback Aaron Rodgers with long time steady girlfriend, actress Olivia Munn.


Munn stars with Erik Bana in Deliver us from Evil…that’s 2


3 – Erik Bana stars with Orlando Bloom in Troy.



Orlando Bloom and Richard Armitage appear together in The Hobbit films…I count four degrees of separation between Richard Armitage and the Green Bay Packers.

Kind of fun way to pass the time waiting for the dryer to finish. 🙂

    I love Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon! I used to play it all the time. and I was watching a TED Talks vid just yesterday with Kevin Bacon, talking about how he hated that his name was used in that game.

    Holy cow. I’m six degrees away from Richard Armitage! Olivia Munn presented a lifetime achievement Emmy to my uncle.

    well any connection like which included Eric Bana is good with me 🙂 Especially him as Hector 🙂

      LOL…Troy was a bit of a disaster from a “faith to original text” standpoint, but the “visuals” we’re superb!

        I liked Troy even though… for example, the shocking death by of Hector of Menelaus.I thought it was clever and modern to leave out the internecine interference of the gods. I liked the action and then, it also included Sean Bean, who managed not to die ( as Odysseus).

        • obscura says:

          I don’t mind leaving out the gods, but if they had to insert a love story into it, Patroklos should have been the one, not Briseis. The other thing that made me nuts was to have Achilles survive to the fall of Troy. That’s a massive diversion that just doesn’t work for me.

          I agree that the battle sequences were well done, and I thought Brad Pitt did a good job of conveying Achilles’ put upon anger, and then his rage.

          • Perry says:

            Speaking of things that made one nuts, Angelina Jolie as Achilles’ mother? ( That was “before” Brangelina, though, I think.

          • obscura says:

            I think you must be thinking of Angelina Jolie as Olympias to Colin Farrell as Alexander…cringeworthy. Julie Christie Played Achilles mother Thetis in Troy.

          • Perry says:

            Yup – my mistake. Julie Christie

          • Hariclea says:

            oh no i saw Alexander recently.. shudders… no, just no. But yes the fights looks good in Troy and i thought Achilles anger and temper was well done. And yeah not brave enough i guess to go for the possible real live story there… meh.
