Six Degrees of... the Power Rangers #7 - Steve Carell and Jackie Chan

Henshin0 dared me again:
Steve Carell was in Evan Almighty with Lauren Graham
Lauren Graham starred in Gilmore Girls

Chad Michael Murray was in a couple of episodes of Gilmore girls. He once starred in One Tree Hill.

Michael Copon was in One Tree Hill and played Lucas/blue in Time Force.

Jackie Chan made cameos in his animated series.

Adam Baldwin voiced Finn in Jackie Chan adventures. He was in Firefly and Serenity with Summer Glau. re: summer glau.

Okay, so this doesn't get anymore crazy, voters are sick of the Six Degrees. Now we will do specific connections, it has to connect to a Specific season. So, I dare you guys to connect Johnny Depp to any of the sixth Ranger actors from the Operation Overdrive.

Johnny Depp was in Once Upon A Time In Mexico with Eva Mendes.
Eva Mendes was in Ghost Rider with Nicolas Cage.
Nicolas Cage was in Knowing with Gareth Yuen, who played Dax Lo in Operation Overdrive.

Peter said...

Johnny Depp starred in Finding Neverland. Rhoda Montemayor (Pink Ranger in PROO) was in Finding Neverland.

henshin0 said...

depp was in "edward scissor hands" with alan arkin. he was in "get smart" with carrell (here comes my 6D #7). Carrell was in "office" where Jack Coleman guest stared in 2 episodes so far. Coleman is famous for playing Noah Bennett In "Heroes" with Greg Grunberg who was in "Falicity" with Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly MMPR1-3) (now that i finished my initial point, this is how i will reach your challange). Amy was in MMPR season 2 (duh) with Johnny Yong Bosch (Adam Park MMPR2-PRT), where he...wait for it.....GUEST STARRED IN A 2-PART EPISODE OF PROO WITH ALL SIX PROO RANGERS!!!

ps, i connected Chan to Love Hewitt to the kid who plays Micah in "Heroes" to Greg Grunberg to Amy JJ

pps another way to connect Carrell is to Masi Oka in "Get Smart", who was also in "Heroes".

Lavender Ranger said...

Dang it, I didn't know about Rhoda being in Finding Neverland. Okay, how about Betty White to the Jungle Fury cast?

Simone said...

betty white is in hot in cleveland, which joe jonas appeared in one episode. joe jonas was in an episode of hannah montana, which stars miley cyrus. miley was in an episode of the suite life of zack and cody which features brenda song. brenda song was in wendy wu homecoming warrior which also starred Anna Hutchison (Lily, PRJF).

Lavender Ranger said...

Damn it, Simone, you're good, got to give it to ya.

Simone said...

Thanks :-) This is making me realize that maybe I watch too much tv...lol

henshin0 said...

now connect sandra bullock to a ranger in MMPR

Simone said...

sandra bullock was in all about steve with bradley cooper. bradley was in the wedding crashers with rachel mcadams. rachel was in mean girls with lacey chabert. lacey was in party of five which scott grimes appearing in some episodes in the earlier seasons. scott grimes was in ER which amy jo johnson(kimberly MMPR) appeared in one episode in season 8).

henshin0 said...

Here's an easy one, connect arnold swartzenegger to a black ranger (if you can connect him to more than one, then write a reply for each one (but i've got one particular in mind))

henshin0 said...

Oh, and by the way Simone, you didn't mention that:

Bullock--Shatner-->Miss Conginiality(1&2)
Shatner--Takei & Nicoles-->Star Trek
Both trekies--Grunburg-->Heroes
Grunburg--Jo Johnson-->Falicity

Freebe:
Beyonce--grunburg(cameo)--Austin Powers 3

Are there any heroes actors that can be connected without affiliating Greg grunburg to Amy Jo Johnson?

Lavender Ranger said...

Henshin0, let me guess, Zack?

Simone said...

I was gonna use grunburg, but it ended up being too long. I didn't even think of star trek for that connection, thats cool.

Lavender Ranger said...

Yeah, let's not reuse actors we already used.

Simone said...

Ok, so I'm tired right now so these are the only ones I could thing of:

1. Arnold was in the movie Kindergarten Cop. Angela Bassett was in that movie. She later appeared on Alias which Greg Grunbreg was one of the leads on the show. Greg was in Felcity with Amy Jo Johnson and Amy was on Power Rangers with Walter Jones (Zack, MMPR).

2. Arnold was in Terminator 2: Judgement Day with Xander Berkeley. Xander was in CSI as a recurring character for 2-3 seasons. Walter Jones (Zack, MMPR) was on CSI for one episode in season 3.

3. Arnold was in Terminator 2: Judgement Day with Xander Berkeley. Xander is in the t.v show Nikita with Lyndsy Fonseca. Lindsy was in Desperate Housewives which Jack Guzman (Danny, Wild Force) appeared in one episode in 2006.

Simone said...

here are a few heroes actors that are connected to PR without using greg grunberg and amy jo johnson:

1. Hayden Panettiere was in the bring it on movies (she was in the third one). Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) was also in the franchise (he was in the fourth bring it on movie)

2. Jack Coleman was in an episode of CSI: Miami. Erin Cahill (Jen, Time Force) was also in one episode of CSI: Miami

3. James Kyson Lee was in an episode of CSI in season 9 called Say Uncle. Archie Kao (Kai, Lost Galaxy) was in that episode and has also recurred on CSI since season 2.

henshin0 said...

you forgot that in "terminator (2)",he was with linda hamilton, who in the 4th season of "chuck", plays his mom, where Adam baldwin plays Casey. follow through from there

the entire cast of "expandables" can be connected to Amy or Walter either through Swartzenegger's cameo, or through Li's starring role in "forbidden kingdom" with Chan. follow through.

at this point, we could connect random celebrities without even doing research prior to proposing them. yesterday, after telling a friend about this game, he randomly asked about Marilyn Monroe. Simone, can this be done?

henshin0 said...

oh, and Simone, when i gave the swartzenegger challenge, i didn't mean find different connections to one ranger, i meant find connections (if they exist) to different ranger, whose color designation is black every challeng i make, you find a connection for a ranger that's different than the one i came to. so i said that in case if you did that again (which you didn't). but thanks for the effort anyways. you should make a cameo on "community" and have a 6-D on yourself, which i would do right now in 2 ways:

you(cameo, season(hypothetical))--Owen Willson (cameo season1)-->community
Owen Wilson--rachel McAdams-->Wedding crashers; follow through

you(cameo, season(hypothetical))--Ken Jeong-->community
ken jeong--Dedrich Bader-->Vampires suck (which they do, by the way, thanks to Myers)
Bader (cameo, season 3)--adam baldwin-->chuck; follow through

Simone said...

Well I haven't seen terminator 2 so I didn't know about other connections. As for Marilyn Monroe I don't know if there is a PR connection there.

Simone said...

1. Arnold was in Terminator 2 with Linda Hamilton. Linda is in Chuck playing Adam Baldwin's characters mother. Adam was in an episode of CSI:Miami in 2003. Sean Cw Johnson (Carter, Lightspeed Rescue) was in an episode of CSI: Miami in 2004.

2. Arnold was in Terminator 2 with Linda Hamilton. Linda is in Chuck which also features Brandon Routh. Brandon was in the show Undressed (Season 3) which also featured Jason David Frank (Tommy, MMPR-Turbo, Dino Thunder) and Alyson Kiperman (Taylor, Wild Force) in the same season.

3. Arnold was in Terminator 2 with Linda Hamilton. Linda is in Chuck which also features Brandon Routh. Brandon was in Superman Returns which featured Dan Ewing (Dillon, RPM) in an uncredited role as a university student.

4. Arnold was in Terminator 2 with Linda Hamilton. Linda is in Chuck which also features Zachary Levi. Zachery was in Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, which featured Jesse McCartney. Jesse was in Greek which Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force), was in an episode.

5. Arnold was in Terminator 2 with Linda Hamilton. Linda is in Chuck which also features Yvonne Strahovski. Yvonne was in Sea Patrol (Series 1) which Nikolai Nikolaeff (Dominic, Jungle Fury) also starred in (Series 3-onwards).

Simone said...

Can you list the expendables connection to Amy and Walter? can the ones I got relate to other Rangers. For example:
1. Arnold Swartzenegger had a cameo in The expendables which featured Jet Li. Jet Li was in the Forbidden Kingdom with Jackie Chan. Jackie Chan was in Rush Hour 2 which Maggie Q had a small part in the film. Maggie Q is in Nikita which Chris Violette (Sky, SPD) appeared in one episode.

2. Arnold Swartzenegger had a cameo in The expendables which featured Jet Li. Jet Li was in the Forbidden Kingdom with Jackie Chan. Jackie Chan was in The Tuxedo which also featured Debi Mazar. Debi was in JONAS playing a movie director who hires Joe Jonas in her next movie. Joe was in an episode of Hannah Montana which features Miley Cyrus Miley was in an episode of the Suite Life on Deck which features Brenda Song. Brenda was in Wendy Wu Homecoming Warrior which features Anna Hutchison (Lily, PRJF)and Sally Martin (Tori, Ninja Storm).

3. Arnold Swartzenegger had a cameo in The expendables which featured Randy Couture. Randy was in the Scorpion King 2 which Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) had a leading role.

You're right. I always find different connections then the one you ask me for.

henshin0 said...

yeah, and you rock after all. but to correct your info, hamilton played levi's mom, not baldwin's. that info is irelivent to the game, but for the sake of the filmography i think i should poit hat out. although, it would have been interesting if he had a mom in the show, and she turned out to be a spy (like everyone else). it would be even funnier if it was betty white (that would make so much sense)

henshin0 said...

Also, i forgot to mention that Tim Dalton (James bond, 007 series) plays the main villain in chuck season 4, you now have more leads for connecting other celebrities to power rangers through him

Simone said...

Tim Dalton was in Toy Story 3 as Mr. Pricklepants. Bonnie Hunt was also in Toy Story 3 as Dolly. Bonnie was in Cheaper by the Dozen with Alyson Stoner who played one of her daughters. Alyson was in an episode of That's So Raven which stars Raven Symone. Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) has appeared in a couple episodes of That's So Raven as a member of Raven's favourite boy band Boys in Motion.

henshin0 said...

here is an easy one, connect robert webb to 3 female rangers, one from saban and two from disney

Simone said...

1. Robert Webb was in Magicians with David Mitchell. David was in an episode of Phineas and Ferb. Ashley Tisdale is in that show as Phineas and Ferb's sister. Ashley is in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody with Brenda Song who was in Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior with Anna Hutchison (Lily, PRJF)and Sally Martin (Tori, Ninja Storm).

2. Robert Webb was in Magicians with David Mitchell. David was in an episode of Phineas and Ferb. Caroline Rhea was in an episode of Phineas and Ferb as well. She also starred in Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Nakia Burrise (Tanya, MMPR-Turbo) appeared in one episode.

henshin0 said...

He was with Mitchell in peepshow, where the guy playing super Hans cameoed in an episode dr who with David tannent who played barty croutch jr in Harry potter 4. Rob pattison played there as Cedric, and as Edward in a movie I'd rather not mention with Taylor lautner....damn i forgot what happens next, but it leads to Amy Jo Johnson in falicity. Don't worry, grunberg isn't in this challenge

Lavender Ranger said...

Bad Joke: Simone and henshin0, get a chat room already.

Simone said...

lol sorry lavender ranger. i didn't know this would last for so long. henshin0, do you have msn? if you do you should add me!

henshin0 said...

what! this is too fun. this is as thus far the only blog i have interst in, it's not my fault you make a game that is too adicting for it's own good. lavander ranger, you remind me of myself in highschool when i introduced anime to it. everyone liked too much and it died for me. you're in a better possition than me. I'M NOT WEARING A SPANDEX COSTUME 24/7 and calling my self a power ranger, so stop feeling like a third wheel in a bike, and start fealing like a third wheel in a trike

Lavender Ranger said...

Don;t be sorry! I was having fun. This is fun. Continue please, all you want, feel free!

Simone said...

Lol! Thanks Lavender Ranger. As for the last challenge Henshin0, I have no idea who the person is. Could you just tell me?

henshin0 said...

i just remembered how it ended. lautner was in valentine's day with gen gardner,who was in faliciy with jo johnson.

or gardner was in alias with grunberg (sorry lavander) who too was in falicity with jo johnson

or lautner was in valantine's day with anne hathaway, where in princess diaries 2, raven simone cameoed. raven had her own show "that's so raven". sprouse twins appeared in one episode as zack and cody, where both rave and the twins were in a cross over episode of zack and cody. that leads to brenda song to wendy wu to the same 2 disney rangers from the first 2 alternatives of robert webb.

As journey would say, "the wheels in the sky keep on turning"

now try jorma taccone while having a happy new year.

also here's one that uses exactly 6 steps: masahiro inoue-MMPR

ps, i'm sure lavander knows this one

Lavender Ranger said...

Henshin0, btw, I am touched you say my blog is the only one you have interest in. :) I work real hard on it.

Simone said...

Happy New Year to you too.

1. Jorma Taccone was in Role Models with Bobb'e J. Thomspon, who was in That's So Raven with Raven-Symone. Michael Copon (Lucas, Time Force) was in a couple episodes of Thats So Raven as a member of Raven's favourite boy band, Boyz in Motion.

2. Jorma Taccone was in Hot Rod with Mark Acheson who had a small part in The Chronicles of Riddick which stars Vin Diesel. Vin was in Pitch Black (the movie that came before Chronicles of Riddick) which featured Firass Dirani (Nick, Mystic Force).

Simone said...

as for masahiro inoue, i have no idea how he connects to mmpr.

Simone said...

P.S: Lavender Ranger, I love your blog too!! It's one of the first sites I check up on when I turn on the computer every day!!

henshin0 said...

Yay i finally got you. ok inoue is famous for playing tsukasa kodoya in kamen rider decade, where he cameoed in shinkenger ep 21. the shinkengers had a teamup with go-ongers, who had a teamup with gekirangers, who had a teamup with the boukengers.

here is the 5-hidden-keys-moment; in boukenger vs super sentai, kaoru abe reprizes his role as abare black. all 4 of the main abranger appear in the episode of dinothunder, "lost in translation". ironically, not only is jason frank (MMPR1-PRT, PRDT) a ranger in that season, but also he played the the same one as abe (black).

ps during the promo for that episode of PRDT, i was hoping that PRDT and abarangers would team up, not have them watch an episode of it

Simone said...

Yes you got me...lol!!! I would have never never thought of that though. You're good!

henshin0 said...

Another way to connect inoue is really cool. In 4 episodes of decade, there was a kid version of wataru kurenai. The actor playing him also played mini gekired in gekiranger ep 15. Gekiranger had a cross over with boukenger; boukenger teamed up with abareblack from abaranger in vs super Sentai. Abaranger appeared in Dino thunder ep19, where JDF was a star of. Another ironic thing is that the kid who played kibaranger was also playing the flashback kid version of burai, while JDF played both the green and white rangers in mmpr seasons 1-3

Simone said...

Nice

henshin0 said...

I just finished watching 2 episodes of dr who, and found interesting links to our expanding network of 6D-- in the series finale of the 10th doctor (David Tannant), Tim Dalton plays the leader of the time lords. In that same episode, much like all the other finales, the doctor dies (not much of a spoiler) and gets regenerated with the portrayal by Matt Smith. In the first episode of the 11th doctor (smith), he fight a shape shifting eel named "prisoner zero". One of his disguises is played by Olivia (something, forgot her name). She plays major recurring roles in "peep show" and "that Webb and Mitchell look" with none other than Webb and Mitchell. Don't you just love BBC?

By now we need a giant blackboard, and a ton of string, and enough photos to make target have a large enough surplus cash to just give away samurai merchandise.

henshin0 said...

An irrelevant thing I'd like to add is that I feel bad about the10th doctor.

He may be the best doctor
He may be the worst doctor
He may be a doctor of average caliber
There were doctors past
There will be doctors to come
There is a doctor present day
But David Tannant is the doctor for me

henshin0 said...

Just found a circle.

Blake foster (prt) was in Brady bunch take the white house as a Brady, with brown Daniels as a priest. Daniels plays the camp councilor from camp rock 1&2 (and appearently toured with stones and aerosmith). Camp rock has Alison stoner who was in zack and Cody with Brenda song, who was in wendy wu, where rpm yellow and ninja storm blue were playing.

Or Stoner was in cheaper by the doesen 1&2. On the second one, she was lovey-dovey with Taylor laughter, who I connected earlier to Amy Jo johnson, and back to the 2 from Wendy wu.

henshin0 said...

Or a third way is to say that stoner appeared in one episode of that so raven, and work through there. try connecting my good personal friend (no, seriously) friend Robbie Amell to power rangers. Avoid using his link to stoner in CBtD2 or his connection to Ashley tisdale in that one movie I can't remember the name of. That would be too easy

Simone said...

David Tennant did a pretty good job as the doctor. As for the challenge:

Alyson Stoner was in the movie Alice Upside Down with Lucas Grabeel. Lucas was in the High School Musical movies with Corbin Bleu. Corbin was in Jump In! with Keke Palmer who is in True Jackson, VP with Robbie Amell.

Btw, the movie with Robbie and Ashley Tisdale that you can't remember the name of is called Picture This. Also, how do you know Robbie? I'm from Canada (like him) and he was on this popular Candian show a couple years ago.

Also, you forgot this other PR connection that Blake Foster has. He was in the movie Kids World with Olivia Tennant with was Dr.K in RPM. You can then connect her with the other RPM rangers.

henshin0 said...

robbie and i lived across from each other in the appartment i lived in before i moved over 2 years ago. we hung out every other week. after i moved, i had a similar relationship with charley stewart (zack and cody), but it wasn't as close as it was with robbie. i wish we exchanged contact info because i'm sure he moved too after getting te role of freddy in scooby doo. i also wished i exchanged info with the guests i befriended at pmc (we hung out legitamatel): walter jones, jason narvy, blake foster, matt austen, monica may, jason faunt, and mr s from cs toys

by the way, i think i'm getting the hang of the game. let me have a trial challange

Simone said...

You went to PMC? I'm so jealous!!! As for a challenge for you, hmm... connect Mel Gibson to PR (I know, random but I was on imdb.com earlier and I saw that it's his birthday today, so I chose him). I though of two PR connections for him, lets see if you think of the same ones.

henshin0 said...

I dislike Gibson, but here goes, he was in a half-ass adeptation of hamlet. Ophelia is played by Helen B. Carter who was in planet of the apes with mark walberg. He was in the lovely bones with summer from rpm (did you notice that there are now 4 blonde caucasian female yellow rangers in a row. Talk about diversity)

Anyways, Carter was also in Alice in wonderland (actually through the looking glass) with Hathaway. She was in princess diaries 2, guest starring raven Simone. She was in
Zack and Cody with song, who was in Wendy wu with you know who.

This one might not count, but Gibson was on stage as Titania in midsummer nights dream. In a different cast, but in the same play, dr k played puck. Now i've restored all amends

Simone said...

Lol about the yellow rangers. So true :-P Sorry about using Mel Gibson. I'm not a fan of him either. I couldn't think of anyone to use and then his face popped up on imdb first so I used him.

henshin0 said...

well, eiter way, did I meet your expectations? perhapse you can answer that when you connect adam sandler in three ways.

Simone said...

Yeah, you did. that was good :-) As for the new challenge,

1. Adam Sandler was in Big Daddy with Dylan and Cole Sprouse who later starred in the Suite Life series with Brenda Song who was in Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior with Anna Hutchison (Lily, PRJF)and Sally Martin (Tori, Ninja Storm).

2. Adam Sandler was in The Hot Chick with Rachael McAdams who was in Mean Girls with Lacey Chabert. Lacey was in Not Another Teen Movie with Chyler Leigh who is the sister of Christopher Khayman Lee (Andros, In Space). They were also in a show together called Safe Harbor.

3. Adam Sandler was in I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry with Jessica Biel. Jessica was in the movie Stealth which featured Jason Chan (Cam, Ninja Storm) and Nikolai Nikolaeff (Dominic, Jungle Fury)in small roles.

henshin0 said...

wow 5/3 nice, but there should be at least two more left, one of which is the big daddy leading to zack and cody, but what i was thinking was the twins reprized their roles in raven with....raven whose favorite boy band the motion of which features a certain "boy in blue" (cop pun). was he the one that hated the color blue in that one episode? it would've been funny if so. also, if yo can connect swartzenegger to his wife that would be anothe connection for the turbo-freezenator, because his wife appeared in that same epsode of raven. now challage me while searching for 2 connections for maculy culcan (forgot the spelling) both of which involve at least one link from the same channel.

ps, if there was an american version of DeCaDe, would you say Kutcher would do a good job as tsukasa

henshin0 said...

it has come to my attention that there was a connection between adam baldwin and summer glau through firefly, but it hasn't been mentioned that summer glau actually had a cameo as gretta in chuck season 4. ironically, glau and a villian from chuck both play regular characters in the new show, the cape.

henshin0 said...

I know that nobody is playing this game anymore, but ranger series yellow wasn't in Wendy wu, turns out it was yellow jungle fury ranger, but she was in johnny K: back on board, which for some reason featured nick jonas who was in camp rock movies, where Alison stoner was as well. She played max in Zack and Cody with Brenda song. BOOM! Balanced has been restored!

Simone said...

who said ranger series yellow was in wendy wu?

henshin0 said...

It was....oh wait there it is....never mind. But still, I connected rpm yellow to Wendy wu so....but it's weird, don't remember nick jonas being in johnny k 2

henshin0 said...

By the way, at the prs premere, I was surprised see and hang out with Cody lindley, who apparently is "brothers" with Hector david. So.....Cody was in an Episode of Thats so raven with....raven, where in several episodes mike cupon plays a boy in motion. (not done yet) in time force 28, severax is voiced by Paul schrier, who reprises his role as bulk in samurai, where Hector David jr plays green samurai. LETS SAMURAIZE!
