Wrong Celebrity Relative, TMZ

Wrong Celebrity Relative, TMZ

TMZ has made a not-so-minor error, by including a picture of Christopher Coppola, when they supposedly meant to have a picture of Christian Brando for a story on the latter’s recent death. Ooops. Honest mistake? Coppola, as the name suggests, is part of the Francis/Sofia clan (he’s Nicolas Cage’s brother), and a filmmaker. Brando, who is Marlon’s son, is not a filmmaker (He was kind of an actor, but only kinda. More officially, he was a convicted killer). Here’s the TMZ post:

This is probably the most press Christopher Coppola has gotten, in years.

UPDATE: They’ve corrected the error, but make no mention of it.
