James Marsden brought a special date to the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards: his lookalike son Jack!

“We’re excited. I’m just trying to keep up with him, the dress, the attire, he wears things I can’t,” the Westworld actor said during PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly‘s red carpet pre-show.

Rocking platinum blonde hair and a head-to-toe black ensemble, the sunglass-wearing 15-year-old added: “I’m ready.”

Marsden, 43, and ex-wife Mary Elizabeth Linde are also parents to 11-year-old Mary. The actor also has a 4-year-old son, William Luca, from a another relationship.

“He’s a great kid, he doesn’t need much advice, I go to him for advice,” Marsden said of his son during E!’s red carpet show.
