Melvin Van Peebles and Mario Van Peebles

It can't be easy having a trailblazing legend as a father, but Mario Van Peebles managed to do his old man proud. The Panther star has not only launched his own successful Hollywood career, both in front of and behind the camera, but he also paid homage to his iconic father in his 2003 film BADASSSSS!, which tells the story behind the making of Melvin's seminal Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song
