A snapshot of celebrity offspring -- EW introduces you to some new faces with very familiar names

STEVEN R. MCQUEEN Age 17; the grand-son of the late Steve McQueen has a recurring role on The WB’s Everwood. ”It definitely adds more pressure,” he says, ”because everyone expects you to be great…and to have the blond-haired, blue-eyed look.”

JESSE KELLERMAN Age 27; the son of authors Jonathan and Faye Kellerman releases his debut thriller, Sunstroke, next month. ”The family lore holds that I was storytelling to my dad at a very young age, even before he began publishing,” he says.

MAX MINGHELLA Age 20; the son of director Anthony Minghella stars in Bee Season, Syriana, and 2006’s Art School Confidential. ”I considered changing my name to Smack Daddy, but I would’ve kept my last name,” he says. ”I thought it had a ring to it.”

OWEN KLINE Age 14; the son of actors Kevin Kline and Phoebe Cates stars in The Squid and the Whale. Says Squid costar Jesse Eisenberg: ”I was surprised to see that he understood the [film’s] humor in a mature way I didn’t expect.”
