    Default Acting! a family business: famous actors and their children/siblings

    After reading a comment about how talent nowadays is because of the last name, that got me thinking who was 'born' into acting, nevermind how much talent the genes carry.

    Actor - Parent/Family

    Angelina Jolie - John Voight
    Drew Barrymore - the Barrymore clan
    Nicolas Cage (Copolla) - the Copollas
    Michael Douglas - Kirk Douglas
    Kiefer Sutherland - Donald Sutherland
    Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez - Martin Sheen
    Tori Spelling - Aaron Spelling
    Gweynth Paltrow - Bruce and Blythe Danner
    Mariska Hargitay - Jane Mansfield


    I'm sure there are tons more - keep adding

    Aaron Spelling was a TV producer, not an actor.

    If we're talking about showbiz families in general, the list is long. Christian Slater, Kate Hudson, the Arquettes, just about any male or female ingenue you can think of, Joely and Natasha Richardson, all the Redgraves, Macualey Culkin (father an actor, aunt is Bonnie Bedelia, brother is an actor), Joaquin Phoenix, the Baldwin brothers, Melanie Griffith (Tippi Hedrin), Warren Beatty and Shirley Maclaine (brother and sister)...
