    You’re kidding me. Nicolas Cage was a Coppola. Learn something new everyday.

  • rajimus123

    great list! finding out that nicholas cage, jason schwartzman and frances ford coppola are related was mind blowing!

  • Toni

    I think you can add Cheryl Ladd to the Ladd in-law list. I think her ex-husband was David Ladd. And I know her daughter Jordan Ladd is also an actress.

  • Peter Boucher

    Mariska Hargitay of Law & Order SVU fame. Her mother was Jayne Mansfield, her father was Mickey Hargitay, the Hungarian Bodybuilder. Also, Judy Garland and Vincent Minnelli and their daughter Liza Minnelli. The woes of Ryan O’Neal and his deceased significant other Farrah Fawcett and Ryan’s daughter, Tatum and son Griffin. Though being a rock music singer, Steven Tyler (singer for Aerosmith) and his daughters actress Liv Tyler (of “Lord Of The Rings” fame) and Mia Tyler (a very much sought after “Plus” size model). Kirk Douglas and his son Michael and Michael’s son (I cannot think of his first name). The Baldwin’s (Alec, Daniel, Steven, Billy) and Alec’s ex-wife Kim Basinger.

      Lets also not forget Aaron Spelling and his daughter Tori and what may become of Tori’s children

      I did throw a bone to the Minellis and Douglases in the opening entry. The Baldwins aren’t yet vertical.

        Hello Orrin. Sorry for my overlooking your inclusion on your list. Its just me getting carried away.There is an interesting story that I am reading on the Wikipedia that might interest you if you haven’t already have not heard about it. Its this so-called “curse” called the “27 Club”. Its all about popular or famous musicians that died at the age of 27 and its not just limited to rock musicians as a classical music composer is on the list and ones that I never realized who died at that age. It also gives the official cause of death and some of them are very strange. Thank You again for correcting me.

    Very good list, some families I’ve never heard of or at least was aware of. I would like to add to the list; The Baldwins, The Esteves (or Sheens, whichever you prefer), the Douglas’s , and lastly, the Bridges. Maybe they don’t count as dynasties specifically, but they are all acting families. I mean, you did list the Curtis’s. Still, all in all, good list.

    • fdx

      Totally agree with you with Baldwins and sheens families. Also, and i don’t know if it’s good news for the movie industry, but the Wayans have also a lot of member working in it

      • http://sophomorecritic.blogspot.com Orrin Konheim (article’s author)

        Thank you for the compliment

    • Jorge

      Yeah you have to be crazy if you don’t mention the Sheens man

      • http://sophomorecritic.blogspot.com Orrin K (article’s author)

        True. Baldwins were TV. As crazy as it seems, the Sheens have raised their stock in the year since the article came out with Emilio making The Way. In any case, Sheens are up for runner-up consideration

    What about the Carradine’s? There are a few generations of actors there.

    • http://sophomorecritic.blogspot.com Orrin Konheim (article’s author)

      I actually discovered the Carradines a week after I made this list and I mailed the editor to ammend the list to include them, but sadly they didn’t make it in time. The Carradines are definitely worthy of being on this list, I completely agree

  • Peter Boucher

    The Huston’s. John and his daughter Anjelica.

  • loveswhite

    My friend just told me a nice place — T’ a” ll m’ i n ‘g ‘l’ e. c ‘o ‘M ‘– it’s the most effective site in the world to connect with, date and marry tall, and big people.. It’s worthy a try.

  • Peter Boucher

    Though this does not pertain to Hollywood and back even before Hollywood was introduced to the world, before TV, film, and radio as well. When acting on stage was the only source of entertainment, but how about the Booth Family. John Wilkes Booth and his brother Edwin. Of course we all know the crime that the first name mentioned did.

  • edm

    where are the Wayans?

  • wojr

    So, you’ll show a pic of Jane Fonda’s son, Troy Garity, who is an actor with a “modest” career — but not mention him in the story?

    • http://sophomorecritic.blogspot.com Orrin Konheim (article’s author)

      Sorry, I was completely unaware of his existence. The pictures are added in later by the editors.

  • BobaFett

    You forgot a Huston. Jack Huston who among other roles plays Richard Harrow in Boardwalk Empire.

    Also you forgot ALOT of husbands. For instance Bridget Fonda’s husband is Danny Elfman. Tom Green is the ex grandson in law of John Barrymore.

  • mastermama

    You forgot a Richardson, eventhough you pictured her. Joely Richardson is a good actress in her own right.

    • http://sophomorecritic.blogspot.com Orrin Konheim (article’s author)

      I personally did write her in. the list was truncated by the editor, I believe. Sorry

  • Melissa Dow

    I was going to say the same thing as mastermama. Joely Richardson was in Anonymous, The Patriot, Return to Me, 101 Dalmations, and a slew of others.

  • Cynthia

    Where is the Wayans Family?

  • Prude

    uh The Wayans Dynasty should definitely be in here

  • LoLo

    The Arquettes, Culkins & Barrymores should be on this list.
