He's from Hollywood royalty on both sides of his family tree

Cole Hauser was born in Santa Barbara, Calif. in 1975. His parents are Cass Warner, founder of production company Warner Sisters, and actor Wings Hauser. His dad had long-running roles on a number of television series, including "Murder, She Wrote," "Beverly Hills, 90210," and "The Young and the Restless," per IMDb. His paternal grandfather was Dwight Hauser, an actor, screenwriter, and producer who was blacklisted after being branded a Communist during the McCarthy era, per Entertainment Weekly.

If you think that's impressive, wait until you hear about his mom's family: Cass Warner's father was twice Oscar-nominated screenwriter and producer Milton Sperling. Her grandfather was Harry Warner, part of the team of four brothers who founded Warner Brothers Studio. Under Harry Warner's leadership, the studio produced and released "Casablanca," "Little Caesar," and "The Story of Emile Zola," among many other films, per Express.

Cole clearly inherited his talent from his creative and successful family. According to him, he also inherited their work ethic. "My family is innately hard-working. Especially on my mom's side," he said in an interview with Havok Journal. "They were Russian immigrants and they came over and built an empire at Warner Brothers. Even my grandfather, who was a Marine and in Iwo Jima, came back and built the career he had built. You've got to work hard, there is no substitute."
