We have seen a lot of cases where sons take over the family business after their fathers. We thought it couldn’t work with this industry but look, there are some sons who own the same talent as their dads and have made their places in this industry.
- Will and Jaden Smith
Will Smith is one of the great actors of the industry but even then he never wanted his children to be associated with the industry. Surprisingly Jaden had other plans and decided to audition for a movie to land a role with his father! The two starred together in ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness’ and ‘After Earth’ and we hope to see more movies of this duo.
- Tom and Colin Hanks
Tom Hanks is a legendary actor and it was a cherry on the cake when his son entered the industry too. Tom and Colin Hanks have done the movies ‘That Thing You Do!’ and ‘The Great Buck Howard’ together and it’s evident that his son has inherited quite some talent from his father.
- Jerry and Ben Stiller
This is the most comedic son-father duo of the industry. While the 2 have done the movie ‘Zoolander’ together and made us laugh our asses off, they have individually given great movies to us. Looks like the acting career and the ability to make people laugh runs in their genes!
- Kirk, Michael and Cameron Douglas (3 generations)
Oh yes! There really is a movie that focuses on 3 generations of actors belonging to the same family. And literally, the name of their movie together is ‘It Runs In The Family’! Well, we are quite sure about that now, aren’t we?
- Donald and Kiefer Sutherland
Donald Sutherland has given us over 350 films in his career. His son Kiefer Sutherland has been on some TV shows before coming into the film industry. The father and son duo have done two movies ‘Max Dugan Returns’ and ‘A Time To Kill’ together and played the role of enemies in both.
- Lloyd, Jeff and Beau Bridges
Jeff and Beau started off when father Lloyd gave them roles in ‘The Lloyd Bridges Show’ and the boys didn’t seem to stop after that. The 3 have worked together in ‘Tucker’, ‘Daddy’ and ‘Sea Hunt’. The brothers have been co-starring and co-hosting together in some other shows too and they do a fairly good job together.
- Martin Sheen, Charlie Sheen, and Emilio Estevez
When Martin Sheen moved into directing he used his powers to get his sons Charlie and Emilio on the big screen. The boys had already gained enough name from their teen movies. Later, the 3 were seen together in ‘Apocalypse Now’, ‘Wall Street’ and ‘Men At Work’. Martin and Charlie’s role in ‘Apocalypse Now’ has been the best father-son duo by far!
- Jeremy and Max Irons
Jeremy Irons and Max Irons had very different ways of entering the industry but we couldn’t be more happy that their end destination was the same. The 2 have given us the movies ‘Die Hard With A Vengeance’ and ‘The Host’ together and taken our hearts away in the process.
