How Old Is That Actor Playing a High School Student on TV?
Although really not fair about Zach Gilford playing Matt Saracen. I betcha there's some 20somethings playing QB in Texas high schools. Red shirt'em, y'all.
Which is why one time I was told I looked like a 15 year old. When I was 22.
I really think the age of actors playing high school students (and college) affects what people expect to see in real life. If fifteen year olds actually played fifteen year olds... I think there would be fewer high school dramas. More college ones.
My last short film had a 25 year-old Tommy Hilfiger model playing a highschool quarterback... But I think he's more of a Jason Street anyways.
