Thompson on Hollywood By Anne Thompson and Beth Hanna | Thompson on Hollywood October 17, 2013 at 2:58PM

Ronan Farrow, son of actress-humanitarian Mia Farrow who grew up as the son of director Woody Allen (his paternity has been debated -- even his mother says it's "possibly" Frank Sinatra), has joined MSNBC and will host a weekday show. MSNBC cites Farrow's winning personality as the reason he's being hired. Check the video below and see for yourself.

Ronan Farrow, son of actress-humanitarian Mia Farrow, who grew up as the son of director Woody Allen (his paternity has been debated -- even his mother says it's "possibly" Frank Sinatra), has joined MSNBC and will host a weekday show. MSNBC cites Farrow's winning personality as the reason he's being hired. Check the video below and see for yourself.

Vanity Fair broke the paternity story when they asked Farrow directly if her son was fathered by Frank. "Possibly. No DNA tests have been done," she replied. Ronan went on to tweet, "We're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."

Mia Farrow, daughter to movie star Maureen Sullivan and director John Farrow, is a really smart if slightly eccentric figure. She has 13 living children, four biological and nine adopted. Actress Farrow had a long relationship with Allen, starring in many of his best movies, following a short two-year marriage (1966-68) with Sinatra, who objected to her taking the lead role in Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby." Ronan Farrow was born in 1987, but Farrow maintained an intermittent affair with her ex into his 70s, and took Ronan to Sinatra's funeral

Mia is a prolific tweeter at @MiaFarrow, from lunch photos with pal Philip Roth to pointed political retweets.

Check out a 2011 video, below, of Ronan Farrow's interview spot for Forbes' 30 Under 30, as Special Adviser to Hillary Clinton's Global Youth Initiative. Ronan, a ringer for his mom and Sinatra (check shape of his head, blue eyes, nose and ears), is currently 25, matriculated very early at college, graduated from Yale Law at age 21, and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford.
