“There, there, it’s ok…”


#4

Time has been tough on ole’ Luke.


#5

He looks like an younger version of Bryan Cranston.


#6


#7

At least his hair hasn’t gone grey yet.


#8

Apocryphal anecdote: some guy joined aarp in his 20s for the discounts and they couldn’t turn him down due to age discrimination laws.


#9

They really look alike:


#10

I never liked 90210… but this is still somehow disturbing. Then again, I’m only 6 years behind him…

:confounded:

@TheGreatParis: I think there’s some hair dye involved. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#11

For me it’s like, hey, you know that kid from the 90’s? He’s 50 now!!!

OTOH, he really doesn’t look bad.


#12

I’d not heard of AARP before, I immediately thought of Hodges.


#13

Cultural pointers for the non-Americans… AARP? What’s that then?


#14

It’s like the NRA of social security.

Oh sorry, that probably doesn’t help. American Association of Retired People.


#15

It’s an organization for people over 50 years old. It stands for American Association of Retired People.


#16

Luke Perry is 50!!! How is that possible?

(I know, wrong Buffy…)


#17

He would look better if he let it go natural.


#18

Can’t unsee this now.


#19

I know, right? If our generation’s teen idols are getting old, it makes us (or me, at least) feel old. (Ok, Luke Perry wasn’t my cup of tea, but still.)


#20

He always was the world’s oldest ‘teenager’ in 90210, though. Or the most weathered.


#21

Well, that’s the problem. He can travel through time and space…but not both at once.

He might want to try giving space a go for a while :wink:
