After I talked on KTRS Friday about the old guys who star in "Last Vegas," my colleague Frank Ladd sent me this piece from Vulture, comparing the ages of some of today's veteran movie stars with some from the past who were the same age but seemed a lot older:
And here's the one that really shocked me:
- George Clooney (52) is a year older than Wilford Brimley was when Cocoon was released.
- Julianne Moore (53) is two years older than Gloria Swanson was when she appeared in Sunset Boulevard.
- Harrison Ford (71) is two years older than Burgess Meredith was when Rocky was released.
- Marisa Tomei (48) is the same age as Jean Stapleton was when All in the Family started.
There are several more -- see the whole piece here.
- Denzel Washington (59) is a year younger than Andy Griffith was when Matlock began.
