Michael Douglas may have followed his father’s footsteps into the movies, but he just nixed a chance for his infant son, Dylan, to make a cameo appearance alongside the tot’s grandfather and grandmother — and other family members — in the upcoming “A Few Good Years,” reports PEOPLE. Douglas, 57, arrived with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones, 32, in Monaco on Monday for the Laureus World Sport Awards. Speaking to PEOPLE, he said he would not include the youngest member of the Douglas dynasty in the film, which is scheduled for a late 2002 release. “We were thinking about it,” Zeta-Jones added, “but it was a bit too much.” Although Dylan, 1, missed out, Douglas’s elder son, Cameron, 23, landed a role in the film, directed by Fred Schepisi (“Six Degrees of Separation”), about a dysfunctional New York family and its members’ attempts to reconcile. So did Michael’s mom and Kirk’s first wife, Diana Douglas. “It was a real treat,” Douglas told reporters in Monte Carlo. In Monaco, Douglas and Zeta-Jones joined such sports and show-biz celebrities as Sean Connery, Boris Becker, Marion Jones, John McEnroe and Morgan Freeman for two days of fun and fundraising — and, in the case of Connery, one of PEOPLE’s former Sexiest Men Alive, golf. The former James Bond, 71, and tennis ace Becker, 33, played in a challenge on the hilltop Monte Carlo Golf Course. But Connery was swinging blind at the start. “I was playing in fog for the first five holes,” he told reporters.
