    This would take eons to research. There have probably been thousands upon thousands of people that fall into this category. A quick list from memory would include Charlie Sheen and Emilio Esteves (sons of Martin Sheen), Michael Douglas (son of Kirk Douglas), Carrie Fisher (daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher), and Jamie Lee Curtis (daughter of Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis), to name a few.

    I always thought it was interesting that Janet Leigh in her role as Marion Crane in Psycho gave us the scream to which all other horror movie screams were compared until her daughter started doing the Halloween series and took over the mantle. I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all... especially when the apple is chopped off by some homicidal maniac.

    Another interesting side note on this topic is the movie It Runs In The Family. This movie stars many Douglas family members including Kirk and lesser known actor Diane (Kirk's wife and Michael's mom) as the elder members of a family with Michael playing their son and Cameron Douglas (Michael's son) playing their grandson.

    Nepotism is alive and well in Hollywood.

    Kate Hudson (Goldie Hawn), Elisa Mineley (don't know how to spell name and just can't think of mothers name at moment), Michael Douglas (Kirk Douglas) thats all that i can think of.
