Dad Wants Actor Son to Stay Out of Jail

jail-1CDAN – At the opposite extreme … is this B list movie and television actor who has been around forever. While raising his C list actor son, he had only one rule. Don’t get arrested. Other than that he didn’t care if or when his child came home or what he did as long as he didn’t get caught.

    ryan o’neal comes to mind.

  • Ashton

    Ryan oneal was my first thought as well…is his son even a c list actor though??

  • Maureen Meyer

    Scott Caan and James Caan?

  • oinc!

    Gary Busey and his son Jake Busey.

  • Busy

    Shot in the dark, but how about Martin Sheen & Emilio Estevez? They use the past tense, leading me to believe even the son is grown up now.

  • GuyIncognito

    Doesn’t James Caan have a son who acts?

  • andy

    Donald and Keifer Southerland

  • My Cat Loves TV

    Maybe I’m living in the past but I think of both Sheen and Sutherland as being pretty “A” list. I’d at least say that they had “A list name recognition.”

  • Kate

    the brolins? might explain why josh is so d* to his wife.

  • j00j

    tom and colin hanks

  • db

    I’m thinking Michael Douglas and his oldest son.

  • ChristineNYC

    I’m guessing Martin and Charlie Sheen…

    • plum

      in this case, Martin Sheen must be fired as father

      • ChristineNYC

        LOL – but it explains to me why he has such a wild life. As long as he doesn’t get arrested, he can do as much drugs and screw around as much as he wants! Duh, it’s a family rule! LOL

    • Just Sayin'

      Naw, as bad as Charlie turned out, Martin is a very moral upright kinda guy. I just think he was too busy when his kids were growing up to be an involved father.

      I don’t know if this is the answer to this BI, but this is relevant to Martin Sheen.

      I watched an interview with Martin Sheen recently (RTE’s The Late Late Show) where he talked about Charlie and how he shopped him to the police because Charlie had nearly died from an earlier overdose.

    I have to say, I don’t really know what the fuss is. I think all fathers give the same advice to their sons. Don’t get caught!

  • been there done that

    i totally thought martin and charlie sheen after i discarded my original pick of ryan and redmon o’neil.

  • been there done that

    i like scott caan too but he’s like f list

  • db

    Hallelujah. It must be Larry King and Larry Jr.
    Because:
    1. He didn’t know he had a son.
    2. He (Larry) has been in jail.

    and I think I need to go back to bed.

  • Alex

    This BI is of any interest only if either Dad or son did a stint in prison. That said, I have no clue. And what with the `and at the opposite extreme’ comment? Is it a reference to the actor playing a boxer or a wrestler?

    • Celeste

      Your comment got me thinking about which Hollywood dad has been in jail or vice versa and then I realized I still can’t figure this out! Good observation though!

    • maurav

      This blind item is from CDAN. Probably immediately before this one, was the one about the father calling ahead to the bar so the comment “and at the opposite extreme” was added (for continuity) to link this one to the other.

  • Blah

    Yeah my first thought was Donald & Kiefer Sutherland. Except I think Kiefer is more famous than Donald and I don’t really know how I’d rate them anyways.

  • Erica Marie

    James & Josh Brolin
