User customizable - can turn on or off either the "Bacon Number" or "Center Number". Can also compare that person's "Center Number" to Kevin Bacon's "Center Number".

It would be trivially easy to update this for any actor. If for example, Jon Heder wanted to know how many steps it was from him to any actor when he pulled them up in IMDB, he could put his own info in this script instead of Kevin Bacon's.
