Evan Rachel Wood's Dad Gets Hilariously Dramatic On The Airwaves
Evan Rachel Wood isn't the only thespian in her family. In fact, she's the beneficiary of some pretty good genes.

Evan Rachel has reconnected with her father, Ira David Wood, in the past few years. They have a lot in common, at least interest wise: he is a revered figure in Raleigh, North Carolina. He's the Executive Director of Theatre in the Park, a popular actor in city productions and an author. He's also, it turns out, a pretty fantastic rapper.

Appearing on the city's "Bob & The Showgram Mornings" radio show, he gave a rousing reading of Lfmao's hit song "Sexy and I Know It," juxtaposing his classic theatrical style with the more modern -- and risque -- lyrics of the rap.

Honestly, we like his version better!
