Kevin Bacon is an American actor and musician.


Born in Philadelphia, Bacon left home to pursue a theatrical career, and soon began appearing in motion pictures such as the original Friday the 13th, before gaining notice in Diner and Footloose, in which he played the lead. This lead a number of similar roles before playing against type in JFK, A Few Good Men and earning a Golden Globe nomination for The River Wild. He later made his award winning directorial debut with Losing Chase.

In the 2000s, Bacon played a number of darker roles, including a paedophile in The Woodsman and a Nazi mutant supremacist in X-Men: First Class. Due to his prolific and genre-spanning career, Bacon became the subject of the meme "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" which he embraced by setting up the charity Six Degrees.


In his extensive career, Bacon has sang on film, for example in Pyrates, but made more prominent musical appearances alongside his brother Michael as part of the band "The Bacon Brothers", performing music they had written themselves. Together, they released a total of six albums, beginning with Forosoco in 1997.

As well as their albums, the Bacon Brothers also contributed to collaborations such as Dog Train and Philadelphia Chickens.
