Born: March 17, 1951

Kurt Russell is the son of a baseball player turned actor named Bing Russell (he played the Deputy Sheriff in Bonanza). You could say it's a situation of "like father, like son" because Kurt also had baseball ambitions, although he'd begun acting by the age of six with a regular role in the TV series Sugarfoot and by the time he was 12, had the lead in the TV show The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters. At the age of 14, he starred opposite Fred MacMurray in the hit Disney film Follow Me Boys!... See All
