Fishburne has three children: Langston, 34, and Montana, 31, with his first wife, and Delilah, 15, with his second, Gina Torres. When discussing the animated series — which begins streaming on February 15 — the actor revealed that Delilah helped guide him through the process.

"Is she interested in this sort of work?" The View co-anchor Sara Haines asked Fishburne, prompting him to gush about his youngest child.

"I may have one of my children may actually be in the business," Fishburne told the ladies, sparking Behar to ask a natural follow-up question.

Despite his awkward facial expression, Behar didn't take the hint, patting the All the Old Knives actor and reassuring him that everything would be okay.

"Sometimes it's hard to follow in your footsteps," she said, causing another uncomfortable response from Fishburne.
