Och sits on the board of The Robin Hood Foundation, the organization founded by Tudor Jones, which works to end poverty in New York City.

The Robin Hood Foundation’s board is populated by hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen, Home Depot financial backer and billionaire Kenneth Langone, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and film producer Harvey Weinstein, among many others. Weinstein allegedly paid Kevin Bacon $25,000 NOT to be in the upcoming 2013 epic Escape From Planet Earth. daWe connected billionaire hedge fund manager Louis Bacon to Kevin Bacon in three moves. Three times. As it turns out, in the incestuous world of Hollywood and money, this is relatively easy to do.

The Bruce Kovner Route

Louis Bacon worked at Commodities Corporation, a financial services company that launched the careers of numerous hedge fund managers and financiers, including Paul Tudor Jones and Bruce Kovner. Kovner  chairs the board of the Juilliard School, which boasts acting graduates like Christopher Reeve, Val Kilmer, Kevin Spacey, Robin Williams and Laura Linney. Linney acted alongside Kevin Bacon in Clint Eastwood-directed Mystic River (2003).

The Ted Turner Route

Ted Turner

Media mogul Ted Turner and Louis Bacon  both own ranches in the San Luis Valley, which straddles the border between Colorado and New Mexico. Both are working to prevent power companies from stringing power lines across their property. Turner was a member of the short-lived (at least publicly) Good Club, a social club composed of the the philanthropically-minded mega-wealthy. Oprah Winfrey was also a member. In March 2005, Winfrey hosted Kevin Bacon on her show.
