TV's Next Generation: Actors With Famous Folks
Brian Williams and Allison Williams
Famous Family: Brian Williams, father
Breaking Out on TV: After a few small parts on "
American Dreams" and "
The League," 23-year-old Yale grad Allison just landed her first regular TV role as Marnie on HBO's buzzy new comedy, "
Girls." But her father's certainly no stranger to the small screen: Dad Brian has been anchoring the NBC Nightly News since 2004, and has worked for the network's news department for nearly two decades now. Perhaps soon enough, he'll be reporting on his own daughter's Hollywood success.
