J.J. Abrams has been involved with several projects that avail themselves of the social theory called the “Milgram Small World Phenomenon,” after the social psychologist Stanley Milgram, who conducted acquaintance path experiments. John Guare’s play Six Degrees of Separation (1993) (and its subsequent film adaptation) is heavily responsible for introducing to the pop culture at large the notion that everyone in the world is separated by only six other people; Abrams had a small acting role in the film version. Abrams went on to produce “Six Degrees” (2006), a TV show with a premise predicated on this theory, and “Lost” (2004), a TV show in which seemingly unconnected and disparate characters often end up having hidden or unknown links to each other.
Is a fan of Howard Stern, who is also a fan of of his work (particularly “Lost” (2004) and Star Trek (2009)) and personally called Artie Lange through his agent to congratulate him on his being hired to replace ‘Jackie Martling’ (“The Joke Man”) as a sidekick in 2002. Also gave Stern’s daughters a tour of the “Felicity” (1998) set.
Best friend is Greg Grunberg. They’ve known each other since they were children and he frequently casts Grunberg in his films and TV shows.
