Who says you’re not supposed to mix business with fun. Over the years, plenty of father and son teams have appeared in the same movie, if you don’t like it — blame them. You might be surprised.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at actual Father and Son teams who’ve appeared in the same flick.
Will Smith and Jaden Smith – They will appear in the science fiction action film, “After Earth,” directed by Hollywood’s master of the surprise ending M. Night Shyamalan, as Cypher and Kitai Raige. Cast: Jaden Smith as Kitai Raige, Will Smith as Cypher Raige, Isabelle Fuhrman as Rayna, Sophie Okonedo as Faia Raige Zoë Isabella Kravitz as Senshi Raige, David Denman as McQuarrie, Kristofer Hivju as Security chief, Gabriel Caste as Ranger, Lincoln Lewis as Bo and Chris Geere as Navigator.
Martin Sheen and Charlie Sheen – Martin Sheen and Two and a Half Men start Charlie Sheen are responsible for arguably the greatest pairing of real-life father and son on film in Oliver Stone’s classic ‘Wall Street.’ They have since re-teamed as father and son on Charlie’s hit FX series ‘Anger Management.’
James Brolin and Josh Brolin – In 1997 (a decade prior to ‘No Country’ and ‘Grindhouse’), James and Josh appeared together in ‘My Brother’s War,’ with father playing the lead and son appearing in a support.
Donald Sutherland and Kiefer Sutherland – Kiefer Sutherland appeared alongside his Hollywood legend father, Donald, in the 1983 movie ‘Max Dugan Returns.’ The Sutherlands teamed up again in 1996 for the John Grisham courtroom thriller ‘A Time to Kill.’
