Kevin Bacon Gives Kyra Sedgwick Four-And-Half Months Of Separation

ATLANTA (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Kevin Bacon not only inspired the “Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon” game but he gave his wife, Kyra Sedgwick, some separation so she could take on a coveted role.

Sedgwick plays a homicide investigator in the new TNT series, The Closer, and says that “it was just a great, great part that I couldn’t really turn it down.”

But she couldn’t have taken the role if her hubby hadn’t been willing not to work during the four-and-a-month stint required for the shoot.

Bacon agreed to stay home in Connecticut with the kids while Sedgwick brought home the bacon.

Although Sedgwick doesn’t say whether he spent his “Daddy time” teaching his kids the finer points of the “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon” game, she does say that he’s so proud of the fame from it that he has decreed his tombstone must read: Never won an Oscar, but the only actor to have a board game named after him.

The Closer premieres June 13.
