These "old" actors playing high school students didn't fool anyone...

Maybe this is why so many TV shows turn to older actors for the roles of high school students. But in some cases, these actors could be parents to high school students! One of the biggest mysteries on the CW’s Riverdale doesn’t have to do with the Serpents, Ghoulies, or Black Hoods -- it has to do with the ages of the cast. They ALL pretty much look way too old to be in high school, including Cole Spource, who was past the age of 24 when cast in the role. But the focus here is on Ashleigh Murray, who was cast as high school crooner Josie at the age of 29. After the release of American Pie in 1999, we dealt with a whole decade of high school based raunchy comedies and these movies needed actors to fill the roles of these horned up students! Sometimes the pool was just too small and casting agents reached out to older actors. Case in point: the movie “Fired Up!” where a couple of football players decide to attend cheerleading camp. Find out what older actor nabbed a part and see if you can guess their age!From Riverdale to Scream -- and even Harry Potter, see some actors who have aged incredibly well and could pull the part off while others neared their forties and stuck out like a sore thumb while exploring their high school memories on both television and in movies!
