Thursday Thirteen: 13 Brothers I Adore

Isn’t the relationship between brothers special? Well, maybe that’s my romantic side talking, but brotherly love is truly awesome and since my current work-in-progress regards the story of two brothers, I thought it would be fun to blog on my very first Thursday 13 topic about brothers! So here’s a list of 13 brothers I adore. (Yes, I'm little early, but I have to post when I can.) These brothers may be real or they may be characters in a movie or television show. They may not even necessarily be famous. Can you guess which brothers are real, which are based on movies and or television shows, and which ones are famous? Can you guess what they do?

  1. Sam and Dean


  1. The Jonas Brothers


  1. Daniel and Michael


  1. Luke, Owen and Andrew Wilson


  1. Ben and Casey Affleck


  1. The Wayans Brothers


  1. Blues Brothers


  1. Coen Brothers


  1. The Baldwin Brothers


  1. Farrelly Brothers


  1. Frasier and Niles


  1. Eddie and Alex Van Halen


  1. My dad and his brother Emmett. Sorry, couldn’t find photo for this one.

Love Frasier and Niles. So funny.
My kids adore the Jonas Brothers.

Well Sam and Dean are fictional. Although I can't think of the name of the show that they are characters on, I am guessing that it airs on the CW.

The Jonas Brothers are a real singing trio. What can I say, I watch The Disney Channel sometimes.

Daniel and Michael are real. I am guessing that you know them personally because they don't look familiar to me.

The Wilsons, the Afflecks, and the Wayans are real. They are all actors.

Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues are fake brothers.

The Coen Bros. are real siblings and Oscar-winning directors too.

The Baldwins and the Farrellys are real brothers. Actors and directors, respectively.

The Crane brothers are fictional.

Although Sammy Hagar may wish they didn't exist, the Van Halen brothers are real (Eddie plays lead guitar and Alex bangs the skins).

Sorry you couldn't find a photo of your dad and uncle.

This was fun. Thanks for giving me a chance to flex my trivia muscles.

Janet said...

Emma Sanders said...

Yeah, I couldn't find a picture of all the Baldwin brothers so I just found one with my 2 faves! :)

Patsy said...

Welcome to TT. Nice list of brothers-- Wish you had one of your Dad and his brother, those are the best. One you missed that my husband and I laugh at are from Two and a Half Men. Charlie and Alan are almost(and I stress almost)as good as Niles and Frasier.

Lori said...
