Too Young To Be That Kids Parents


Recommended Posts

Inspired by the late in life pregnancy thread. What are some of the ridiculous casting choices where a kid has been aged and the actor(s) is too young in reality to be their parent(s) ?

Didn't Jed Allen play Edward Q?  He was just 2 years older than Stuart Damen.  Totally ridiculous! 

 

I'm still on the hill by myself regarding Bev and Douglas Watson as father and daughter. Ugh!

Cady McClain’s Dixie as mother to Jacob Young’s JR (let’s not even discuss Ryan Bittle) on AMC

 

But what about the Kelli Giddish as Jacob's mother.  That was equally ridiculous if not more.

One of the silliest has to be Leigh Taylor-Young playing Katherine Crane who was mother to Julian Crane played by Ben Masters who is only two years younger. The writers tried to explain as Katherine having had plastic surgery, but it still was a fail.

Oh totally. Forgot about that because it was later undone. But Kelli is YOUNGER than Jacob!!

Kelli Giddish as "Dixie" was soooo [!@#$%^&*] ridiculous.

 

Am I wrong, or didn't it seem as if they WANTED her to be Dixie, then reversed course when they realized no one was buying it?

Jed Allen was ridiculous as Edward.  It was such a bad idea all around.

 

I kind of agree about Bev and Watson.  In scenes I have seen it seems more like they are a former married couple and much closer in age than father/daughter.

I always suspected Frons did, but I may be paranoid.

Joan Collins complained when 37 year old Gordon Thompson was cast as her son Adam Carrington calling him old. He was only 12 years younger than her. Gordon called her a cow. 

 

I think Stella Stevens was only 10 or 12 years older than Morgan Fairchild when she played her mother on Flamingo Road.
