Gregory Peck was one of the most famous actors ever to grace the cinema screen. The peak of his popularity was from 1940 to 1960. He’s ranked 12th by the American Film Institute on a list of the greatest male Hollywood actors of all time. He often played a protagonist in a moral setting. Peck also passed on his acting chops to his grandson Ethan. Although, his acting career is not nearly as vast as his grandfather’s. Ethan got his big break when he portrayed a young Michael Kelso in That 70’s Show. He also starred in the 1999 movie Passport to Paris. Hawke also landed the iconic role of Spock in Star Trek: Discovery. He’s set to renew his Star Trek role in a spin-off as well.
Samuel Goldwyn was a famous Polish-American film producer. He’s considered an icon in Hollywood for setting up several motion picture studios. Goldwyn has rags to riches story because he left Warsaw penniless. He set up one of the most famous film studios of all time and gave his family a better life. His grandson Tony also joined the film industry like his legendary grandfather but as an actor. He’s done starred in roles such as Tarzan (1999) and Ghost (1990). When Goldwyn made that journey from Warsaw, he probably didn’t think he’d have famous grandkids to shine the Goldwyn name as he did.
