Like Father, Like Son: Jason Reitman, Son of Ivan Reitman, Nominated for an Oscar

Jason Reitman has been nominated for the Best Director Oscar for the indie comedy "Juno."

The movie business is in his blood: Jason's father Ivan Reitman is the director of iconic comedies including "Stripes," "Meataballs," and "Ghostbusters," as well as "Legal Eagles," "Twins," "Junior," "Kindergarten Cop," and "Father's Day." And Ivan Reitman has been the producer of many more films, such as "Animal House."

CBS Sunday Morning did a story on Jason and Ivan Reitman on Feb. 10th.

Jason is best known so far for the 2005 comedy "Thank You for Smoking." But just being nominated for "Juno" has put him on the map.
