What do Eugene Levy, John Legend and Tom Hanks have in common? Well, besides their impressive accolades and stellar acting skills, they've got pretty strong genes.

In Hollywood, there's no shortage of celebrity dads with kids who bear a striking resemblance. For instance, Michael Conseulos looks so much like his dad, Mark Consuelos, that he played a younger version of Mark's character in Riverdale. And I know I'm not the only one who did a double take when Damon Wayans appeared in an episode of his son's show, Happy Together.

Keep reading to see which other famous fathers look nearly identical to their children.

1. John Legend & Miles Theodore Stephens

Miles isn't just the spitting image of his dad—it turns out he also has similar characteristics. Legend told Ryan Seacrest, “He has my personality too as far as I can tell. He’s very mellow; he smiles a lot; he’s super easygoing; almost never cries—he’s daddy.”

2. Mark Consuelos & Michael Consuelos

The father-son duo have the exact same smile, so it's no surprise that Michael joined the Riverdale cast to portray a younger version of Hiram Lodge. When Michael shared a behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram in 2021, he wrote, "Same energy."

10. Damons Wayans & Damons Wayans Jr.

I imagine that fans did a double take when Damon Wayans Jr.'s real-life dad guest-starred in season one of Happy Together. My Wife & Kids star Damon Wayans appeared in the episode "Like Father, Like Son" as Jake's father, Mike, and there are moments where they look identical.

11. Clint Eastwood & Scott Eastwood

The father-son-duo share the same smile, and it turns out they also share the same values. Scott told Esquire, "My father's definitely old-school. And he raised me with integrity—to be places on time, show up, and work hard."

12. Alan Thicke & Robin Thicke

On continuing his talented father's legacy, Robin told People, "After my father's death, I remember a friend of his said, 'A big tree has fallen.' That's what my dad was: the big tree. Now here I am, this medium-size tree, and I've got to grow my branches and protect everybody. Every day I try to make him proud of me."

13. Adam Sandler & Sadie Sandler

There's no denying the resemblance between Sadie (pictured on the far right) and her dad. Following her birth in 2006, Sandler told E! News, "I had a chemical reaction in my body, where I loved the kid so much, and I was so nervous for her, and that's when I lost my mind for the kid."

14. Usher Raymond IV & Naviyd Ely Raymond

Usher currently has four children, but it's his second-eldest, Naviyd, who looks most like the R&B singer. According to E! News, Raymond says that he "really loves entertainment" and gets a kick out of critiquing his dad's shows.

I've seen enough photos of this fun duo to know that Ross has the exact same smile as her father. I've also seen enough to know that she inherited her playful humor from the music business manager.

The Parent Trap actor shares Jack with his ex-wife, Meg Ryan—and naturally, Dennis's lookalike son inherited their acting chops. On The Kelly Clarkson Show, Dennis said, "My agent wanted to represent him and he said no I want to do it on my own. And then of course, he gets an agent on his own and his first movie is Hunger Games."
