Essay question: Is Sam Worthington the son of Cal Worthington? Arguments for: 1. unwarranted career that suggests being related to insiders in the business of show (c.f., Gyllenhaals, Deschanels, Clash/Titans director Louis Leterrier, son of director Francois).
2. Sam Worthington’s perhaps genetically-inherited capability for beastmastering (as per Cal W.’s various dogs “Spot,” actually killer zoo animals);
3. ability to sell aged vehicles—i.e., remakes and franchises;
4. Just as Worthington the Elder promised to “Stand upon my head” to make you a better deal, so–through the magic of CGI whirly-cam–Worthington the younger is often seen upside down, thanks to plummeting war-dragons or feathered horses.
