Will Smith and Jaden Smith

After Earth stars Will Smith as Cypher, a being from the future stranded on Earth a millenium after humans have evacuated the planet, who must rely on his young son, Kitai, to find help. To cast the role of Kitai, executive producer Smith didn't need to look any further than his own bloodline.

Will and Jaden Smith, who first starred together in The Pursuit of Happyness, aren't the only father-son acting duo in the business. Keep flipping for many more who keep it in the family.
