Kevin Bacon vs. Kevin Costner

It's the battle of the Kevins! [No, I don't mean Kevin Nealon or K-Fed.]

It's Bacon vs. Costner.

It doesn't matter what your Bacon number is (mine is 3), everyone is eligible to help settle this grudgematch.

Kevin Bacon would win. He might be thinner than Kevin Costner but I think he could take him. He's tougher than he appears. If it was an acting match, I also think Bacon would win.

Apollo 13 vs. Field of Dreams - a tie.

Was Kevin Bacon ever in one of Spielberg's "Amazing Stories"? I think not.

I will, however, go with Bacon because Costner most recently irritated me in a stupid movie called Rumor Has It. [shudder]

Kevin Bacon. He had to be Jack Nicholson's lawyer in A Few Good Men. That takes a lot of huevos. Kevin Costner just had to learn how to speak Indian to pick up Native American chicks.

I'm going to side with Costner for 3 reasons.
A.) That tricky, ever-elusive English accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Now you hear it-- now you don't.
B.) One Word: Waterword. It changed my life.
C.) This one’s personal: Someone (who may or may not be married to me) once had a HUGE crush on Kevin Bacon.

The crush that this person (who may or may not be married to me) manifested itself about the same time as when this person (who may or may not be married to me) should have been rocking out to Bryan Adams' hit "(Everything I Do) I Do it for you". This crush involved an attempt to watch every movie starring Kevin Bacon—no small feat mind you. This person was told by certain members of her immediate family that one of Kevin Bacon’s finest roles came in The Dirty Dozen. This person’s family assured her that he showed up somewhere later on in the film, but she was never able to find him. Apparently Private Bacon’s role in The Dirty Dozen is even more elusive than Robin Hood’s accent.

Just in case you weren’t tempted to click on the link to the Bryan Adams song and relive the magic of the original, click here to see more evidence that people that post to YouTube have way too much time on their hands.

Kevin Bacon has the sneer that Costner will never be able to muster. Even when he's trying hard to look tough, Costner just looks soft. Just compare the two image searches:



Who looks tougher?

Bacon. 100% Because who wants to see Costner with his shirt off? And who wants to see Bacon with his off? In a room full of women, that point would be obvious. (And I'm 2 away from Bacon!)

Wow. A landslide for Bacon. Is there no one willing to speak for Costner? No "Untouchables" fans out there?

For crying out loud! Kevin Costner sees dead people (Field of Dreams)! How can you beat that or the fact that he nailed Al Capone on a tax technicality (The Untouchables) or that he's on eternal, unofficial duty for the U.S. Coast Guard (The Guardian)? You can't stop him. Despite my Bacon Number being 2, I say Kevin Costner would clean Kevin Bacon's clock any day of the week.

Kevin Bacon did his best work in Tremors. No wait, I'm sorry, it was Reba McEntire who did her best work in that movie.

Kevin Bacon, only because Footloose always beats Robin Hood.
