Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman’s son, Connor, is following in her footsteps.

Connor Kidman Cruise, 14, has landed a small role in the remake of “Red Dawn.”

The movie is produced by MGM/UA, the studio where Connor’s father, Tom Cruise, still has an undefined financial interest. He and former partner Paula Wagner re-started United Artists two summers ago, only to have the project fall apart.

Connor, you might say, has acting in his genes. He’s the first of two kids adopted by Kidman and Cruise during their ten-year marriage. Kidman won the Academy Award for “The Hours,” and has been nominated for it several times. She also starred on Broadway in “The Blue Room.”

Cruise, an action movie star, has been nominated for the Oscar twice but has never won.
