Queens Logic (1991) has a handful of actors that I'm at least somewhat familiar with. Linda Fiorentino, John Malkovich, Joe Mantegna, Tom Waits and Jamie Lee Curtis being the ones that spring to mind right away. I'm only going to focus on two of these for now.
She was in Men in Black, which gives us Will Smith (I Am Legend, I Robot, Hitch, Bad Boys, Wild Wild West, Enemy of the State, Independence Day), Tommy Lee Jones (The Fugitive, Batman Forever, Natural Born Killers), Rip Torn (Zoom, Bee Movie, Canadian Bacon) and Tony Shalhoub (Cars, the Spy Kids trilogy, Galaxy Quest). (Of course, Tommy Lee Jones was in JFK with Kevin Bacon, but I don't always remember that one, mostly coz I haven't seen it yet, after I see it I'll probably use it more often).
She was also in Dogma, which gives us most of the View Askew crew, such as Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Jason Lee, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Brian O'Halloran. It's also packed with legends not previously part of the Askewniverse, such as George Carlin, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Alan Rickman and Janeane Garofalo (more complete lists for all of these under the cut).
Tom Waits is one of my favourite singers, and he's also been in an interesting variety of movies. The Outsiders gives us Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Tom Cruise, Diane Lane and Leif Garrett (I'm not going to do lists for these ones, I'm sure you can come up with your own). Mystery Men also gives us Ben Stiller (Zoolander, A Night at the Museum), Hank Azaria (The Simpsons Movie, Tuesdays with Morrie, Anastasia, Great Expectations, Celebrity), William H. Macy (Wild Hogs, Cellular, Spartan, Pleasantville, Air Force One, The Client), Janeane Garofalo (under the cut), as well as Greg Kinnear, Geoffrey Rush, Paul Reubens, Claire Forlani and Eddie Izzard (no lists because this post is already too long).
Even though I still haven't seen Queens Logic, it is one of my favourite final steps for playing Six Degrees because of these two actors, as I am a huge fan of Dogma, and Mystery Men is a pretty fun movie, too.

The purpose of the weekly tips is not to provide you with a list that is "complete" in any sense of the word, but to give you some ideas of connections you may not have thought of, and show you my train of thought in these things to give you an example of how you might be able to remember connections.
