Kevin Bacon Biography

Kevin Bacon is an actor who made his film debut as Chip in National Lampoon's Animal House, and his breakthrough role came with the musical-drama film Footloose. Bacon's ability to take on both starring roles and powerful supporting characters has allowed him to build a diverse body of work. His work ranges across film genres from action thrillers to romantic comedies to heavy dramas, and even the occasional musical.

Some of Bacon's notable film credits include Tremors, Flatliners, JFK, A Few Good Men, The River Wild (for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination), Apollo 13, Mystic River (for which he received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations), and Frost/Nixon. In his directorial debut, Losing Chase, Bacon worked with his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick. The film was honored with three Golden Globe nominations, and Helen Mirren won the Golden Globe for her performance. His second directorial project was Loverboy, in which he also produced and appeared.

In television, Bacon starred in the Fox drama series "The Following," playing a former FBI agent pressed into service when a serial killer escapes from prison. He also played the title role in the Amazon Prime Video series "I Love Dick," and from 2019 to 2022, he starred in the Showtime series "City on a Hill." Bacon's work in HBO's "Taking Chance" earned him a Golden Globe and the SAG Award for Best Actor in a mini-series or made-for-TV movie.

Beyond acting and directing, Bacon formed a band called The Bacon Brothers with his brother, Michael. The band, which has a sound that Bacon describes as "Forosoco" – Folk, Rock, Soul, and Country, has recorded six CDs and a concert DVD. Bacon is also known for the trivia game "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon," which he used to create SixDegrees.org, a charitable social network.

Bacon received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2003 and has received various awards throughout his career, including a Golden Globe Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award. He was honored with the Joel Siegel Award by the Broadcast Film Critics Association in 2010, and the Career Achievement in Acting Award by the Seattle International Film Festival in 2015.

Speaking Topics
  • A Conversation With Kevin Bacon

    Very few actors have had as diverse and prolific a career as Kevin Bacon. His films are a part of our public consciousness. From his roles in Animal House and Diner to Mystic River and The Woodsman, Bacons willingness to take risks and push his craft have resulted in a very powerful body of work. He shares his experiences in the world of acting and filmmaking from the perspective of someone who has enjoyed rare longevity in an industry always looking for the next new thing.

    His ability to continue learning and growing after so many years in the business is a testament to his skills as an artist. A musician as well, he has successfully pursued that aspect of his talent by performing with his brother in their popular group, The Bacon Brothers.

    Loaded with insight and humor, a conversation with Kevin Bacon is a very special and unforgettable experience indeed. (Not to mention the fact that you would totally win the next time you played Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon!)

  • Six Degrees: From Cultural Sensation To Action

    Chances are good that at some point youve participated in a round of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. A trivia game that swept through college campuses and has lived on to become a shorthand term for the small world phenomenon, its premise is that any actor can be linked through his or her film roles to actor Kevin Bacon in six steps or less. While Bacon himself did not invent the game, he came to the realization that it wasnt going away.

    Seeing an opportunity to help make a positive impact, he formed SixDegrees.org, a social networking site with a social conscience. Started with the nonprofit Network for Good, SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something productive. It connects people with over one million worthy organizations, helping them support their favorite charities online. He believes that everyone, in their own way, can have a positive impact, and he shares his experiences with you.

    Bacon says, If you take me out of it, the actual idea that we are connected by six degrees of separation, that we all climbed out of the same swamp, is kind of a beautiful one. If we thought about that a little bit more, we would live in a different world.
