Celebrity kids have been known to follow in the footsteps of their famous parents and enter the acting world. Consider Kate Hudson and mom Goldi Hawn, or Colin Hanks and parents Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. Beverly Hills: 90210 and Riverdale star Luke Perry's son Jack is now 21 years old and also an entertainer, albeit in a very different industry: professional wrestling.
In 2017, Luke Perry attended a professional wrestling match in Los Angeles to support the then-19-year-old Jack, per . The video from wrestling news site captured the actor sitting in the bleachers. Like any proud parent, he kept his phone out to record his son's match.
We cannot believe that's a grown-up Jack, who goes by "Jungle Boy" Nate Coy in the wrestling world. At the Underground Empire Wrestling match, you can see that the teenager has got some really intense moves, not to mention amazingly long rock-star hair. Look at those curls!
