Can you think of a movie or TV show where the (non-related IRL) actors playing immediate family members actually LOOKED like they could really be related?

Only a guest shot, but casting Jenny Slate as Jean-Ralphio's sister on "Parks and Recreation" was pretty inspired...since Idina Menzel was too old for the part.

I don't know if they really look alike or if it was the haircuts - or the type of characters they usually tend to play (hot, somewhat likeable princesses) - but I thought it was very clever to nab Christina Applegate and Reese Whitherspoon to play Jennifer Aniston's sisters in 'Friends.'

When they cast the BRADY BUNCH, the child actors were cast first. Sherwood Schwartz had four sets of child actors cast. One set was blond boys, another set brunet boys, one set blonde girls and the last set brunette girls. Schwartz wanted a brunet father/blonde mother or a blond father/brunette mother combination. One he cast Robert Reed and Joyce Bullifant (who was replaced later by Florence Henderson), Schwartz knew which child actors he was going to use.
Another story; Mary Tyler Moore auditioned for the role of Danny Thomas' daughter on MAKE ROOM FOR DADDY. He told her that with her nose, no one would believe that she was his daughter. He did remember her when it came time to cast the Dick Van Dyke Show.
