Like Father, Like (Smokin' Hot) Son

Everyone loves a good Hollywood dynasty. From the Fondas to the Barrymores to the Hustons, talent has been passed down in these families for multiple generations in some cases (And, yes, I refuse to call the Roberts an acting dynasty because Emma Roberts is a grotty little harpy, desperately clinging to her aunt's fame to land roles in films that should go to young actresses with actual talent). The tradition continues to this day, Emma Roberts excluded, with a special little niche emerging: the hot son of a male acting legend. Let's investigate this further with some examples.

Ethan Peck
Grandson of Gregory Peck
 I discovered Ethan Peck a couple of summers ago while he was on the ABC Family show 10 Things I Hate About You. To this day I've never seen an episode, but I still find Ethan to be hella attractive, just like his grandfather back in the day.







Henry Hopper
Son of Dennis Hopper
I never thought Dennis Hopper was attractive until I saw Giant a couple years ago and discovered that the shaggy-haired guy from Easy Rider was once a very good looking fellow. His son Henry, soon to be seen in Gus Van Sant's answer to the quirky indie comedy, Restless, certainly cleans up nicely. Bonus points: he plays an Emotionally Damaged Boy in Restless! We all know how I love those.







Max Irons
Son of Jeremy Irons
While I was obsessing about Brideshead Revisited and, vis á vis, Jeremy Irons, I discovered that he had a son who was smoking hot. Max doesn't quite have the infamous Jeremy Irons voice, but it's more than pleasant in it's own right and I would certainly go weak in the knees if he talked to me. He was recently in that Red Riding Hood movie that looked exactly Twilight but not. I'll certainly be checking it out sometime soon because I'm superficial like that.









Scott Eastwood
Son of Clint Eastwood
I wasn't even aware Clint Eastwood had a song until Glenn pointed him out the other night, immediately alerting me to his hotness (that's what friends are for, people). Scott looks exactly like his father back in the early part of his career, if a tad bit stockier. Does this mean he'll become a director soon and we'll be getting a strange mixture of Westerns and Oscar prestige pictures from him for the next fifty years?





Patrick Schwarzenegger
Son of Arnold Schwarzenegger
Okay, so he's not technically an actor (i.e. at all), but he's hot so I had to include him. The best thing about the Schwarzenegger divorce is the fact that we get to see so many pics of Patrick. Never a bad thing when he looks like this.

Okay, so Anthony Minghella wasn't an actor but come on - doesn't Max Minghella deserve a spot?
