About the Hollywood Cast Connection

About Us

Thanks for checking out the Hollywood Cast Connection podcast; the show where we connect actors to actors through actors, using their appearances in movies. This competitive six degrees of separation game is the effort of the hosts, brothers Sam and Paul from DFW Texas. What originally started as an idea for a tabletop card game has evolved into the format that you now hear every week on the show.

About the Game

Each game we play two regular rounds and a Special Features round. For each regular round, we run our Random Actor Name Generation Engine (RANGE), which returns two actor names. We then connect those two actors to each other using other actors they have appeared alongside in films. Each round we also draw and Action Card, which offers players opportunities for additional points each round. The Special Features rounds are always a surprise, and feature connections, trivia, multiple game variants, and fun!
