In honor of Yossi Olmerts visit to Brandeis, The Hoot decided to highlight the lesser-known siblings of famous people.

Jeb Bush
Bush is the younger brother of current President George W. Bush and the son of former President George H.W. Bush. In 1994, he lost 49% to 51% for Governor, but he won during a second attempt in 1998. He has been Governor ever since, but could not run for a third term this year. Some say he is pondering a run for President in 2008.

Hailey Duff
Hilary Duffs older sister has attempted to gain fame through joining her sister in the movie Material Girls. She was also in Napoleon Dynamite and will star in Foodfight! next year. Just like her little sister, Duff plans to move from the video screen to music, with Call me Haylie the working title of her album.

Efua Atta Annan
Kofi Annans twin sister died in 1991. Twins are regarded as special in Ghanaian culture, and Kofi and Efua both share Atta as their middle name.

Nikki Hilton
Nicholai Olivia Hilton, Paris older sister, has no sex tape, but she does design her own clothing line, called Chick. She attended the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design, but she did not finish her fashion course. She makes her acting debut with her sister in National Lampoons Pledge This, coming straight to DVD this winter.

Dominic DiMaggio
Joe DiMaggios little brother played for the Red Sox from 1940 to 1953. He was a centerfielder that batted .300 four times and led the American League in assists three times. He was the youngest of nine children, and his 59 physique and eyeglasses earned him the nickname, The Little Professor.

Yossi Olmert
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's younger brother is a journalist and political commentator. He was formerly the Director of the Israeli Press Office and currently is travelling through University campuses to dispel preconceived notions regarding the Middle East.

Casey Affleck
Affleck, younger brother of Ben, has starred in American Pie 2, Oceans Twelve, and Chasing Amy. Affleck is married to Summer Phoenix.

Tom Chapin
Harry Chapins brother actually is a Grammy Award-winning musician, with his children music that is targeted toward the pre-teen age.

Livingston Taylor
James Taylors brother has produced hits in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, though he has not reached a Top-40 single since 1980. His peak performance was, I will be in love with you, which made it to 13th on the billboard charts.
