Sure, there are those celebrity sibling sets that any good movie-loving American can quickly rattle off: Luke and Owen, Mary-Kate and Ashley, Maggie and Jake, Matthew and Rooster. Wait, you’ve never heard of Rooster McConaughey? We hadn’t, either, which is why we’ve assembled this list of lesser-known actors who are kin to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars:
1. Michael Patrick (“Rooster”) McConaughey, brother of Matthew McConaughey
Rooster, who had a role alongside little bro Matthew in the 1998 film The Newton Boys (also starring Ethan Hawke and Julianna Margulies), is a family man. In fact: “I named my [3½-year-old] boy Miller Lyte because that’s my favorite beer. And my [11-month-old] little girl is named Margarita Olympia…I liked that beer, too, even though they don’t even make it anymore,” he told People.
2. Daniel Baldwin, brother of Alec, Billy and Stephen Baldwin
The Baldwin brothers seem to be everywhere. Between hosting the Oscars, baptizing Spencer Pratt in a river on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! and portraying Serena’s dad in upcoming episodes of Gossip Girl, their fraternal branches extend far and wide.
Ah, but lest we forget Daniel, the second oldest of the crew. He’s stayed busy recently starring in 2007’s The Blue Rose, 2008’s Born of Earth and VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club in 2005.
