Here is a selection of some of our favorite lookalike fathers and sons:
Leslie Howard and Ronald Howard
Ronald Howard was a true-blue Brit like his father and especially resembled him during the 1950s when he starred in the television series "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" taking the role of the famous detective that his father never had a chance to play.
Robert Walker and Robert Walker Jr.
If there ever was an actor who gave birth to a mini-me it's Robert Walker. And he didn't do it once, but twice! Brother Michael Walker also resembled his father with his mop of curly brown hair.
Lloyd Bridges with sons Beau and Jeff
Lloyd Bridges made a ton of films, it's a wonder he had time to raise a family! Beau and Jeff made a name for themselves as actors starting the now famous Bridges family acting legacy.
Desi Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr.
From his marriage to Lucille Ball, the father of Babaloo had only one daughter and son ( and his name wasn't Little Ricky ). Both children took after papa with those big Cuban eyes really popping out in Junior as he got older.
Kirk Douglas and sons Joel and Michael
Michael Douglas is always touted as being the twin boy of Big Daddy Kirk but we hold that Joel bore more of his facial features. Just look at that chin!
John Wayne and Patrick Wayne
When it came to looks, little Pat topped his father to whom he owes that prominent square-jaw, just ripe for punching. All Pat was missing was his dad's hip-swinging walk. Makes you wonder if brother Ethan and him ever imitated their dad growing up.
Charles MacArthur and James MacArthur
Screenwriter Charles MacArthur once encouraged his son "To pursue anything you like, just don't become a screenwriter...it's a fate worse than death!" Well, he followed his old man in the acting industry and made an even bigger name for himself than Charles did.
Robert Mitchum and James Mitchum
One bad boy breeds another. Little James got his start in acting at the age of 8 but it wasn't until Thunder Road ( 1958 ) that girls started swooning over him just like they did with his famous dad.
Errol Flynn and Sean Flynn
The spirit of adventure carried over from Errol to his son Sean. After a brief stint as an actor he tried his hand at big-game hunting in Africa before becoming a photojournalist, eventually being killed in Cambodia.
Jose Ferrer and Miguel Ferrer
Miguel Ferrer was the son of Jose and Rosemary Clooney but he doesn't look anything like Mom. Not only did Jose pass down that famous schnozz but he gave his son his giant ears too! Too bad he didn't give him hair.
