Dean Martin & Family
Legendary actor/crooner
Dean Martin.
Dean's daughter Deana covered her dad's songs on the 2006 album "Memories Are Made of This."
Dino's uncle Leonard Barr played a henchman in the James Bond flick "Diamonds Are Forever."

Megastar singer/actor/comedian and "Rat Pack" member Dean Martin was the father of a nepotistic brood that included five singers and/or actors.

Gail Martin, Claudia Martin and Deana Martin, Dean's daughters from his first marriage, appeared in their father's 1956 film Hollywood or Bust. All three daughters made appearances on their father's TV show.

Singer Gail did frequent guest appearances on her father's television show and was a regular on The Dean Martin Summer Show Starring Your Host Vic Damone in 1967 and 1971. She also sang onstage with her father in his Vegas stage show.

Claudia made several appearances in episodes of popular TV series like The Donna Reed Show and My Three Sons, as well as in movies like 1966's Ghost in the Invisible Bikini and 1969's Ski Fever.

Deana appeared in one episode of The Monkees and had a role in 1969's Young Billy Young. In 2006, Deana released an album of covers of her father's songs, titled Memories Are Made of This

Actor Dean Paul Martin (Dean's son from his second marriage) first appeared as a child in his father's 1967 film Rough Night in Jericho. He was married to actress Olivia Hussey (1968's Romeo and Juliet). Their son, Alexander Martin, is an actor who has appeared in films such as 21 (2000) and Josie and the Pussycats (2001). In the 1960s, the younger Dean formed a band with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and session player Billy Hensche called, appropriately enough, "Dino, Desi & Billy." He appeared in 1979's Players and was a regular on the 1980s TV series Misfits of Science as "Dr. Paul Hayes," a role he was still playing when he died in 1987. An officer in the California Air National Guard, he died when his jet crashed during training. 

Dean Paul's younger brother, Ricci Martin, made his sole big screen appearance in 1978's Just Tell Me You Love Me. Ricci served as a consultant on the set of the 2002 TV movie Martin and Lewis, based on his father's partnership with Jerry Lewis. After Dean Paul's death, Ricci took his place in the band with Desi Arnaz, Jr., and the band became, naturally, "Ricci, Desi & Billy."

Going back a generation, Dean was the nephew of old-school stand-up comic Leonard Barr. Barr first appeared on TV in 1950 as a comic dancer thanks to his nephew Dino, when Martin was hosting The Colgate Comedy Hour (1950) with his then-partner Jerry Lewis. Thanks to his nephew's fame, Barr landed small TV and movie roles in the twilight of his career, including TV shows like Little House on the Prairie and The Odd Couple, and movies like The Sting and James Bond flick Diamonds Are Forever
