It's all in the genes.

Aussie hunk Chris Hemsworth shared a throwback snap of his lookalike dad, Craig, on Instagram for Father's Day - and fans went wild.

"Happy Father's Day dad! Thanks for taking me surfing every weekend and driving me to football training and athletics training and to friends houses and anywhere and everywhere and for loving mum and us kids so much. Love u #fathersday #legend," the Thor actor wrote alongside the adorable picture of him, one of his brothers and his dad.


Fans couldn't get over the family patriarch, with many commenting on the similarities between father and son.

"The apple doesn't fall from the tree," one fan wrote, while another said: "Sooooo that's where the looks came from daddy was hot."

"The buzz, and in my opinion, is that it's Chris Hemsworth for Bond. He would be perfect. I am not being biased in any way," 007 stunt double Bobby Holland Hanton told The Mirror.

"I think he would be perfect for it, and he has got a fantastic English accent as everyone knows from his performance in Rush."

Hemsworth would be the second Australian to play the character, following George Lazenby in 1969.
