Reds pitcher Trevor Bell has long had to answer questions about his grandfather, Bob Bell, the actor most associated with the character "Bozo the Clown." But Bell hardly shies away from the association, now immortalizing his granddad in ink:

It's rare to see Bell, 27, without a smile. That could be genetic, as the Bell family has been providing thousands of smiles for many years. Bell is the grandson of Bob Bell, who was Bozo the Clown on WGN-TV in Chicago from 1960 to 1984.

Bell has a tattoo of his grandfather on his left arm, as well as a pair of clown shoes with the words, "The shoes will never be filled."

Bell's lineage puts him on a very small list of famous people with a relative who is famous for different reasons AND inspired a Simpsons character.
