I'm a fan of Kevin Bacon. How many movies has he made? Can you give me details about his personal life?
—Pat S., Tennessee

This accomplished actor and singer has 37 feature films to his credit. His first was National Lampoon's Animal House in 1978, but he hit his stride with his later roles in Diner and Footloose. The Philadelphia native also has acted in Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Bacon, 43, just completed filming in Vancouver with Charlize Theron and Courtney Love on the Sony thriller 24 Hours, which is slated for release later this year. Last year he toured with his band, The Bacon Brothers, promoting their current album, Can't Complain. He and his wife, actress Kyra Sedgwick, live in New York with their two children.
