Travis is credited as a composer on Space Oddity, which follows a man seeking help from an insurance company to plan a trip to Mars.

Naturally, the father-son duo inevitably bond over music, both being musicians. The Footloose actor has been performing as half of The Bacon Brothers alongside his own brother, Michael Bacon, since 1995. His son has his own band, Black Anvil, known for its hardcore black metal songs.

"We've collaborated on amazing stuff because I'm a musician too," the father-of-two told HELLO!, as he gave a sweet shoutout to his son for having written music for Space Oddity as well as other projects.
