The apple doesn't fall far from the acting tree for Connor Cruise and Ali Lohan.

The former will make his film debut in the upcoming Will Smith drama Seven Pounds. Smith, who is a close friend of Connor's father Tom Cruise, has hired the 13-year old adopted son of Tom and Nicole Kidman to play a younger version of Smith in a very minor role.

"Tom is so proud of Connor," a source told People Magazine. "He's proud of him."

Meanwhile, Ali Lohan - Lindsay's 14-year-old sister - has also begun filming her first movie. It's called Mostly Ghostly. Just like Lindsay in 2004 comedy Mean Girls, Ali will portray a popular high school senior in the film.

The flick, slated for release later this year, is based on the pre-teen book series Mostly Ghostly written by R.L. Stine, which centers on an 11-year-old boy who befriends two ghosts.
