Nathan Anderson, the son of actor and comedian Anthony Anderson, shared photos of himself on his Instagram account showing his uncanny resemblance to his father.
One of the images portrayed Nathan wearing a pink suit, a black shirt, and a matching bowtie next to a friend in what appeared to be a party. One of the aspects that attracted more attention was how similar Nathan and Anthony looked.
In a different picture, Nathan’s outfit was on full display. Not only his blazer was pink but also his pants. He also chose black shoes and a flower pin for his chest.
His date opted for a form-fitted, shiny, dark dress with no sleeves on that perfectly combined with Nathan’s wardrobe choice.
The third image showed Nathan hugging his date from behind while both of them were flashing their smiles to the camera showing how happy they were to be with each other.
During an interview Anthony had with Rachel Ray, the actor revealed the reason why he couldn’t cast Nathan in his series Black-ish. Anthony confessed that his son was a young and talented actor who is ready to follow in his father’s footsteps.
As a result, Anthony wanted him to be Andre Jr. on his show, so Nathan cast for the role. The truth is that the boy has a ‘cool factor’ that made him impossible to portray that character.
Anthony pointed out that Nathan has too much 'swag.' He confessed that he didn’t even know where the boy got it from. Jokingly, Anthony said that sometimes he questions whether Nathan is actually his son or not.
‘His swag factor is just off the charts! And we needed him not to be goofy, but just be a nerdy kid, and he couldn’t shake that. And so I couldn’t cast him!’
