Clark Gable is one of the most iconic actors to ever find fame and fortune in Hollywood. Although he passed away in 1960 due to a coronary thrombosis, his legend has lived on, both in his memorable movie roles but also through his children and grandchildren.
While the “Gone with the Wind” star’s son, John Clark Gable, has been acting for decades, it’s the elder Gable’s grandson who is currently in the limelight. People are saying that Clark Gable III is a dead ringer for his famous grandpa.
Do you see a resemblance? He certainly has his strong facial features and eyebrows … all that’s missing is Gable’s pencil-thin mustache!
Clark Gable III has been modeling since he was only 5 years old, but, in 2012, he signed on as the new host of “Cheaters.” The popular reality show — in which the crew investigates claims of married people having affairs and tries to catch them in the act — has been on the air since 2000, but hasn’t shot any new episodes since 2016.
That’s all about to change, with new episodes recently being shot in Dallas (cheaters in the area better beware!). The episodes are expected to air in the fall, with none other than Clark Gable’s grandson being the bearer of bad news who shows up and puts cheaters on the spot. See him chatting with “Access Hollywood” about his role on the show in the interview below — and get a good side-by-side comparison with his grandfather.
So, on the one hand, the cheating partners are humiliated that their duplicitous behavior has been put on national television, but on the other hand, they can brag that they got to meet the grandson of Hollywood royalty.
Although, the young Gable might want to proceed with caution. Former “Cheaters” host Joey Greco was once stabbed in a filmed altercation with a cheating partner who lost his temper at being caught on camera! But if he’s anything like the original Clark Gable, who worked in the oil fields and served in the U.S. Army, he will probably be able to handle himself just fine!
