It seems to be a regular occurence in Hollywood, that if you are a movie star, then your child is more than likely to follow you into the trade. It also helps the child if their Hollywood movie star parent agrees to appear in a movie with them, which has happened on many occasions over the years.
The most recent parent and child double team on the big screen would have to be Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith, who appeared with each other in the recent movie After Earth. That is not the first time that they have starred together, after they teamed up for the movie The Pursuit of Happyness.
Previous parent and child team ups have given us some interesting double acts, such as Babylon 5 actor Bill Mumy, who starred with his daughter Liliana Mumy in the 2002 television show The Twilight Zone, appearing in the episode It's Still a Good Life together.
Other parent and child hook ups include Charlie Sheen and his father Martin Sheen. Kirk Douglas and his son Michael Douglas, and Jane Fonda and Henry Fonda, to name just a few.
