Per Zap2it, the connection was uncovered by the new PBS program Finding Your Roots.

On the show, host Henry Louis Gates Jr. uses DNA technology to trace the genealogy of famous people. And his DNA sleuthing uncovered the queasy link between The Closer star and her X-Men: First Class hubby.

“They are indeed distant cousins,” Gates says. “So talk about six degrees of separation, right?”

You said it, sir!

The couple have a son, Travis, 22, and a daughter, Sosie, 19.

Looks like Sedgwick now has an unbeatable lock at winning Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.
