Poll: Actors Shorter Than Their Fathers (Much Shorter)

Overall, men tend to inherit the height of their father, sometimes they're much taller, sometimes they're slightly shorter (former President Bush was two inches shorter than his father) but while sonny can "get it" from mommy's side, it is still very uncommon (though not extremely rare) to end up being towered by daddy.

This is a list of actors or performers who are past puberty and at least 4 inches (10 cm) shorter than their biological fathers; we know it's all a matter of genetics but still, which case do you find the most surprising?
