Inside the Actors Studio has had a successful 19-year run, but there's still a first time for everything.

On December 26, James Lipton will sit down with Bruce Dern and his daughter Laura for an intimate chat about their careers and personal lives. It is the first time Lipton has ever interviewed a father-daughter pairing.

Over the course of their acting runs, Bruce and Laura have become Hollywood royalty. Bruce's 50-year career has seen him star in acclaimed movies like Alexander Payne's latest, Nebraska, and working alongside legends like John Wayne and Jack Nicholson. He also studied at the Actors Studio alongside legends like Marilyn Monroe.

Laura Dern has also had an amazing career as an actress. She's a three-time Golden Globe Award winner and has been nominated for an Oscar and several Emmy Awards. Some of her best-known movies include Blue Velvet and Jurassic Park.

For their sit-down, the Derns will open up about their individual careers, their father-daughter relationship, what it's like to have their stars side-by-side on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and more.

The special episode of Inside the Actors Studio airs December 26 at 7p ET/PT.
