A photo of Adam shared on Mad As Hell in America website shows that he is unmistakably the son of the legendary actor.

Although he appeared with his father on "The Odd Couple," Adam went in a different career direction. He is a host and an award-winning media strategist and campaign consultant.

PURSUING A CAREER OFF CAMERA

He later pursued a career in radio hosting, however. On PR Web, he explained: "I like the tough stuff. That's why I wanted to do a radio show where everyone, even the people who strongly disagree with me, are welcome to call in and say their peace."

He added that he doesn't promise to agree with anyone, but that he promises to listen. He also explained that there must be a conversation beyond the "false divisions of right and left" that should take place in America – and that this can only be started if people listen to each other.

Adam had a colorful child as the youngest son of the legendary actor and the "Match Game" personality Brett Somers, as stated in Jack Klugman Tribute website.

However, he was not as drawn to the spotlight as his parents. He enjoyed working behind the scenes more than being in front of the camera.

He became a commercial editor, which paved the way for him to become a commercial director, copywriter, and ultimately an award-winning Creative Director.

PAYING HOMAGE TO HIS FATHER

Adam paid tribute to his father, who died on Christmas Eve in 2012, by speaking about his brand in his speech, "Brand It and They Will Come."
