Kevin Bacon (I)


Born on July 8, 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kevin Bacon's early training as an actor came from The Manning Street. His debut as the strict Chip Diller in Animal House (1978) almost seems like an inside joke, but he managed to escape almost unnoticed from that role.

Personal Quote:
