Kevin Norwood Bacon is a Golden Globe nominated film and theater actor. Bacon left home at age 17 to pursue a theater career in New York, where he was one of the youngest students ever admitted, and the youngest student to appear in a production at the Circle in the Square Theater School. However, his movie debut in the fraternity comedy Animal House in 1978 did not lead to the instant fame for which he had hoped, and Bacon returned to waiting tables and auditioning for small roles in theater. After a couple attempts at TV series and a number of small movie roles, Diner (1982) became the turning point in his career. With his rise in fame, he also starred in Footloose (1984), for which is most memorable,She's Having a Baby (1988), Tremors (1990) with Fred Ward, Flatliners (1990), The River Wild (1994), and Apollo 13 (1995).
