Help me connect Adam West to Kevin Bacon

But in 5 steps, not the normal 6. I have a friend who was in a little movie with West, and she's trying to figure out if she works in the 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon Game. Any help would be appreciated.

Adam West was voice talent in Chicken Little. Harry Shearer was also voice talent. Harry was in Spinal Tap with Michael McKean. Michael was in Plane, Trains and Automobiles, where Kevin Bacon had a cameo.

I can name that tune in 3 notes (or is it 4?)...

Adam West was in the original "Batman: The Movie", Burgess Meredith was also in it. Burgess Meredith was in "State of Grace" with Sean Penn. Sean Penn was in "Mystic River" with Kevin Bacon!

Adam West was in Baadasssss! with David Alan Grier. DAG was in The Woodsman with Kevin Bacon.

My claim to fame: Back in 1994, my friend Wyeth and I were the first people to post the Kevin Bacon game to the internet (we posted it on a Usenet discussion group) after seeing the game on a late-night talk show (Jon Stewart's, I think).

I was trying to do this off the top of my head, and I started the same, but went Burgess Meredith to Talia Shire in "Rocky", Talia Shire to DeNiro in "Godfather 2", and DeNiro to Bacon in "Sleepers"

Could only think of West in Batman: The Movie with Frank Gorshin, who was in 12 Monkeys with Brad Pitt, who was in Sleepers with Kevin Bacon.

Adam West is the mayor of Quahog, where Chris Griffin lives. Seth Green was in Idle Hands with Jessica Alba, who was in Sin City with Mickey Rourke, who was in Diner with Kevin Bacon.

Family Guy, Jessica Alba, and Mickey Rourke. I have got to be the winner.

West was in Hooper with Burt Reynolds,
who was in Starting Over with Kevin Bacon.

The Kevin Bacon game is useless now. He's been in so many high profile movies with so many other big names that the game is very easy.

That's ironic...I invented late-night talk shows.

And of course, Kevin Bacon invented amazing coincidences. That's Jon Stewart to Kevin Bacon in 4.

Well I invented coincidences. And iron. The element that is. Fe. Good ole Ferrum. Had to get Sulphur and Neon to mate through stellar nucleosynthesis. And that aint easy. Sulphur smells and Neon's all hoight toighty. The whole process gave me night terrors. Thought I was seeing ghosts. Kind of like Kevin Bacon, in that movie Stir of Echoes. Weird, huh?
