**Circuit Q&A’s are our daily community question, posed to the readers of AwardsCircuit that cover various topics from film and television to general wonderings and for instances**

Today is Kurt Russell‘s 68th birthday. Not only is the actor a legend in Hollywood, still going strong, he’s also responsible for creating another actor in Wyatt Russell. That got us thinking about acting dynasties, which litter the cinematic landscape. So, for Russell’s birthday, let us consider other actors and actresses who have spawned a new generation of actors!

Russell obviously is one and even has been a long-time father figure to Kate Hudson, the daughter of his wife Goldie Hawn. That’s four industry players right there, a rarity in the business, even when you consider how often children follow in their parents footsteps out in Hollywood. Russell is hardly the only one though, as you’ll see next. There’s a ton of famous acting families, and that’s putting it mildly.

Other acting dynasties include Blythe Danner and her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow, Vanessa Redgrave and her daughters Joely Richardson and Miranda Richardson, Martin Sheen and his two sons Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen, plus Donald Sutherland and his son Kiefer Sutherland. There’s also Kirk Douglas and Michael Douglas, as well as Jon Voight and his daughter Angelina Jolie. Plus, we can’t forget about John Barrymore and his daughter Drew Barrymore, along with Stellen Skarsgard and his boy Alexander Skarsgard, can we?

For Kurt Russell’s birthday, which actors are your favorite who have also become parents to actors as well? There are plenty of other names we did not mention. Let us know your favorites!

When he’s not obsessing over new Oscar predictions on a weekly basis, Joey is seeing between 300 and 350 movies a year. He views the best in order to properly analyze the awards race/season each year, but he also watches the worst for reasons he mostly sums up as "so you all don't have to". In his spare time, you can usually find him complaining about the Jets or the Mets. Still, he lives and dies by film. Joey's a voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
