In case you haven't seen the promotional interviews yet ("Actor David Ellison is no stranger to flying"), the 23-year-old son of Oracle founder Larry Ellison stars in the period flick Flyboys, an indie film partially funded by Larry and wife Melanie Craft.

While profiles play up David's experience as a stunt pilot, he's also a horseback rider and X-Games surfer. The boy must be entirely made of Mountain Dew and Hoobastank songs. Worst thing is, you can't hate him — in his interviews, he comes off as humble and knowledgable. Which, even if he's faking it, is better than most rich kids.
