It’s pretty rare that a group of siblings all follow a similar career path, but in Hollywood, the phenomenon happens surprisingly often. There are, of course, many iconic sibling duos like Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, but in some cases, a group of three or more family members share journeys in the entertainment industry, like Chris, Luke, and Liam Hemsworth. The Gunn Brothers, consisting of James, Brian, Matt, Patrick, and Sean Gunn, are also all known for their work in this same world. James is best recognized for writing and directing the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, while Matt and Brian have taken on careers as writers. Patrick is a film executive, and the youngest of the Gunn brothers, Sean, is an actor. Sean has had some memorable roles, including Kirk Gleason in “Gilmore Girls,” and Kraglin Obfonteri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the most recent installment in the franchise, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
