Clint's career in Hollywood began alongside his older brother Ron, 70, on The Andy Griffith Show as children. Since then, the actor has been involved in a long list of films and shows across multiple genres. Over his decades-long career, Clint has also dabbled in music, sports and the arts, with passions across multiple disciplines.

The brothers have worked together on multiple films and projects like their 2022 memoir, The Boys: A Memoir of Hollywood and Family, but the sibling duo have made sure not to let work get in the way of family.

“I love my brother,” Clint said in an appearance on The Drew Barrymore Show in 2022. “He’s a great older brother. He’s a hall-of-fame movie director and he’s a better big brother than he is a movie director.”

He's also previously opened up about how Ron has been a mentor to him throughout his career.

“Not only did I have a beautiful mentor in Dad, but I had a great example in Ron," Clint said in an appearance on The View. "Ron’s five years older than me, so he had already gotten into the business when, luck have it, I got into the business, and I saw by example how he was doing it all. It was beautiful and it gave me confidence.”

Clint's last appearance on the big screen was as Commander Buck Martinez on Star Trek: Strange New Worlds in 2022.
