Australian Media Probing Actor's Alleged Claim That He Is BON SCOTT's Son

April 6, 2007

Australia's The Daily Telegraph has issued the following report:

He's on the well-trodden path to Hollywood stardom, but it seems Aussie actor Alex O'Loughlin may also be well-versed in the "Highway to Hell".

The "Oyster Farmer" star — who recently joined the cast of U.S. cop drama "The Shield" — has apparently revealed he's the son of late AC/DC frontman Ronald "Bon'' Scott, according to World Entertainment News Network.

And while [The Daily Telegraph's] Confidential yesterday contacted both O'Loughlin's Sydney and L.A.-based agents, neither were able to confirm the claim which first appeared in the Chicago Tribune last week.

O'Loughlin — currently dating fellow Aussie hottie Holly Valance — was also out of reach, in Canada to film thriller "Whiteout" alongside Kate Beckinsale.

The NIDA-trained actor, who was tested for the role of James Bond before it went to Daniel Craig, was born in 1977 at the height of Scott's fame — three years before the rocker died in London in February in 1980.
