23. Colin Hanks

Career: Actor
Famous Family: Actor Tom Hanks (father); actress Rita Wilson (step-mother)

He can be funny (see Orange County), sad (see Mad Men), and downright scary (see Dexter). Much like his dad, it's hard to not like Colin Hanks. And it's hard not to draw comparisons when it comes to their looks, mannerisms, and acting style.
