A bit late to resurrect this, perhaps, but:

Andre Petim -->
South Africa(n) -->
Asian South Africans (linked as "Indian") -->
India -->
Mahatma Gandhi -->
(OK, you have to click the "Simple Living" category at the bottom of the page to find the link to this, which may be cheating, but) Downshifting -->
Civic engagement


I'm sure it could be done in fewer steps.

So:

Tyrone Garland (featured article) to Judy Garland.

Louis Slotin (as a composite character) was portrayed in Fat Man and Little Boy by John Cusack, who was in The Player with Julia Roberts, who was in Flatliners with Kevin Bacon.
