Black Actors/Actresses Who Could Play Siblings In Film or TV



We are in a world of more than 7 billion people, so there is always a possibility that someone would look just like you- an older or younger version. This resemblance is not overlooked in Hollywood, as this helps in casting actors as siblings in movies. You would be impressed at how these actors look so alike, and sometimes you could even have a problem distinguishing them. Here we highlight some actors and actresses that can play siblings in film or television. 


There is a striking similarity between the Star Wars actor and Oscar-winning legend. They look so similar that Boyega could easily play Denzel’s younger brother.


Westworld‘s Thandie Newton and Avatar‘s Zoe Saldana share such striking similarities in looks, it will be a no-brainer to cast them as sisters.


Yahya Abdul Mateen II, known for his roles in DC’s Aquaman and HBO’s Watchmen, could easily play Colman Domingo’s (If Beale Street Could Talk) younger brother.


The Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan and Drumline‘s Nick Cannon would play handsome brothers on the big screen. You could easily mistake them for siblings even in real life!


It would be a delight to see melanated queens Tika Sumpter (Sonic The Hedgehog, Mixed-ish) and Lupita Nyong’o (Us, Black Panther) act side by side as sisters!


If Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, and LL Cool J are ever cast as brothers in an action movie, it would be a hit!


Probably one of the best sibling castings scenarios you can imagine! Ryan Destiny and Gabrielle Union look so much alike, someone proposed a remake of Bring It On with Union as the coach of the Clovers, and Destiny as the lead. Now that would be something we’d want to watch!


These two would make a handsome set of siblings! We’d love to see the Queen Sugar star Kofi Siriboe and House of Payne‘s Lance Gross cast in a film one day.


Empire‘s Terrence Howard and Sister Code‘s Eva Marcille would be a perfect brother-sister casting, don’t you think?

Comment below – which one of these was a hit and which was a miss. What other actors and actresses could play siblings in film or television.

Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F

Eddie Murphy’s daughter Bria Murphy has made a memorable cameo in the latest installment of the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, ‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F.’ Bria, who is the oldest daughter of the iconic comedian and actor, plays a police officer who arrests her father’s character, Axel Foley, in the film.

‘Beverly Hills Cop: Axel F’ marks the return of Murphy as the wisecracking Detroit detective Axel Foley, 30 years after the release of Beverly Hills Cop III. The film, directed by Mark Molloy, sees Foley back in Beverly Hills to help his estranged daughter, played by Taylour Paige, who is in trouble with some dangerous individuals.

Bria’s appearance in the film is a family affair, as her husband, Michael Xavier, also stars in the movie as a police officer.

Eddie Murphy said his daughter’s role in the film was a surreal experience. In an interview, he shared that the scene where his son-in-law tases him in the neck was particularly memorable, especially since it happened shortly after his daughter’s wedding.

The movie, released on Netflix on July 3, 2024, has received mixed reviews. However, Eddie Murphy’s performance and his daughter’s cameo have been highlighted as some of the film’s most enjoyable moments.
