Meet Jack Nicholson's Doppelganger: His Son

Um, where on earth has Jack Nicholson been hiding his son? The 77-year-old legend feted The Apollo Theater at a lavish function in the Hamptons this past weekend, and — as usual — brought a much younger date.

Nicholson's 22-year-old son Ray accompanied his father to the event, and all we can say is: Like father like son. The actor's youngest child is a spitting image of dear old dad, from the famously arching eyebrows to that wicked Joker grin.

If you ever needed proof that genetics aren't a myth, this photo is it. Well, this and the infinite amount of proof obtained by highly trained geneticists, but we digress.

Nicholson hasn't appeared in a film since 2010's How Do You Know, and has all but quit acting. That said, his son Ray is exactly the same age as his father was when he made his big screen debut in 1955's Cry Baby Killer.

Was this Nicholson's not-so-subtle way of introducing his son to casting directors all over Hollywood? If so, it worked.

We'd like to personally offer Ray Nicholson the lead role in The Shining remake we're currently working on. We shoot tonight in the park. Bring your jacket, Ray, it's going to get chilly.
