Spotted at Tuesday night's "Warm Bodies" premiere in Hollywood, we couldn't help but notice Scott Eastwood's striking resemblance to his famous father Clint.

From the hair line to the one-sided grin to the nose and even his expression lines -- the 26-year-old is following in his father's footsteps in more ways than one: Scott is also an actor, already with 17 titles to his name.

He has had small parts in his dad's films, "Gran Torino" (2008), "Invictus" (2009) and even "Trouble with the Curve" (2012, in which Clint simply starred). Scott also has a leading role in "Texas Chainsaw 3D," in theaters now, and has two other smaller films coming out this year in which he stars. One is a film called "The Perfect Wave," about a surfer who traverses the world in search for -- you guessed it -- the perfect wave. Scott also had a small role in another surfer film -- "Chasing Mavericks" (2012).

Scott was born in Monterey, California, but lived in Hawaii with his mom, Jacelyn Reeves (with whom Eastwood had an affair in the mid-'80s), most of his childhood. His famous dad has supported his transition into show business but also his saxophone playing. (Clint is a big fan of jazz.)

Scott has managed to steer clear of appearances on the Eastwood clan reality show on E! But one daughter of Clint -- who has seven children total -- appears on "Mrs. Eastwood and Company" with great frequency. Nineteen-year-old Francesca Fisher-Eastwood is a mainstay on the show. She was also Miss Golden Globe this year.

When it comes to Scott's acting career, it seems a natural fit. He did, after all, spend a lot of time with his dad at work as he was growing up. "If I wasn't in school, I was on his sets as a kid... I had to earn my keep, which was good. It was quite an education. You don't want to just be 'the son.' You want to be part of the team," Scott said earlier this month.
