Kevin Bacon Has Directed a Short About Sex and a Duck

While best known as an actor who has worked with pretty much everyone, Kevin Bacon is not unfamiliar with the director’s chair: in 2005, he directed wife Kyra Sedgwick as a possessive mom in Loverboy, and he’s also helmed a few episodes of The Closer. But none of this will prepare you for the artistic heights of his newest short, “A Duck Walks in on a Couple Having Sex.”

Starring Justin Long and The Walking Dead‘s Lauren Cohan, this triumph du cinema may seem self-explanatory, but it’s the making-of stuff that’s the most interesting. Like finding out how many ducks died, or what Kyra Sedgwick had to do, or whether Kevin Bacon can actually count to three. You’d almost suspect that this extra footage actually is the movie.

You’d be right, of course, because this is Funny or Die, after all. But Bacon really did direct it, and if nothing else, it gives you more links for your Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game. Like, he’s connected to 22 different ducks now, as well as Cohan and Long. But the final choice to actually play the duck in the end may surprise you. (Or, more likely, not.)

Seriously, we dig this side of the Baconator (can we call him that now?) and would love to see a duck franchise happen. Or, dare we dream, a Duck Walks In cinematic universe? Comment below with your thoughts on this vital issue.
