The apple certainly doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to these father-son acting duos.

The dashing gentlemen in the Celebuzz gallery above represent the true essence of Hollywood royalty. From Michael Douglas and father Kirk, to bad boy Charlie Sheen and talented family scion Martin, this list is a look at those who don’t need nepotism because they have the talent to back up their family name.

Now Max Irons is joining that long list of father-son duos in the industry.

The actor, the son of respected actor Jeremy Irons, is the young romantic lead in the breakthrough film, The Host. The epic love story comes from worldwide bestselling author, Stephenie Meyer, the famed creator of the fan-favorite Twilight franchise.

In The Host, an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories. That’s when Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan) come to the rescue, risking it all simply to protect the people she cares most about — Jared (Irons), Ian (Jake Abel), her brother Jamie (Chandler Canterbury) and her Uncle Jeb (William Hurt), proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.

The Host opens in theaters everywhere March 29. Check out the trailer, below, and sound off about your favorite father-son acting family in the comments.
