When Jimmy Fallon took over the Tonight Show, he enacted some new (imaginary) rules.

“Dancing has been outlawed here at the Tonight Show,” he solemnly announced on Friday’s episode. He pulled out the official proclamation and stated, “It’s a bummer, but rules are rules.”

That didn’t fly with his guest, Kevin Bacon, whose classic film Footloose is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

“Dancing is illegal?” asked an incredulous Bacon, sitting backstage. “This is the Tonight Show. There has to be dancing!”

Why don't you age?! 11 stars who might be immortal

The Following features a lot of scary imagery — the word “NEVERMORE” scrawled in blood on a wall, those creepy Edgar Allan Poe masks, oodles and oodles of gouged-out eyeballs. But the spookiest thing about the show may be its star — whose face in 2013 is almost as boyish as it was when he starred in Footloose nearly three decades ago.

What can explain Bacon’s immortal looks — good genes? An all-kale diet? Is he secretly a vampire, maybe? Whatever the cause, he’s not alone — Hollywood is filled with folks who never seem to age.

Will we ever get tired of watching PSAs stuffed with brief appearances by multiple celebrities? It’s not likely, as long as they’re as entertaining as this new ad from the Center for Reproductive Rights.

Google introduces 'Bacon number' -- What's the largest degree of separation you can find?

Google wants to make playing “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” easier.

The search engine has launched a new tool known as the Bacon number. By typing in any actor’s name followed by the words “Bacon number,” Google will tell you the degree of separation between that actor and Mr. Bacon.

This tool stems from the party game, which tests movie buffs’ cinematic knowledge by challenging them to find the shortest way to connect any random actor to Bacon. With the new Google tool, you’ll never lose the game again! Well, that’s no fun. Who wants to play a game no one can lose?

That’s why we’ve decided to reverse the rules. Using the Bacon number tool, we challenge you to find the largest degree of separation between Kevin Bacon and a famous person of your choosing. Be warned: this is surprisingly hard. For example, you’d think Kim Kardashian would have a high Bacon number, but there’s actually only a two degree separation between the two.
