Think how much creepier it would be to see them killing other kids when they look so squishy-cheeked and little.

So this movie just came out, which seems like a good time to repost this older image. Interestingly, casting 24-year-old Brenton Thwaites as… 16?-year-old Jonas was sort of the least of this movie’s problems.
In the book The Giver, Jonas is 12, which is when people in his society learn their new jobs. But by making him older in the movie (likely to make it all more TEEN SEXY) it sort of messes with the plot because it makes sense for a 12-year-old to suddenly have a loss of innocence and learn the world isn’t as perfect as he thinks. For a 16/18-year-old to not have realized until now that he’s living in a dystopia makes him seem sort of dim. Right?

Here’s a recently released image of 24-year-old Brenton Thwaites as 16-year-old Jonas in the new movie adaptation of The Giver. Note: Jonas was 12 in the book so we’re already on very strange age-related ground. Especially when you consider 35-year-old Katie Holmes will be playing his mother in this film.

Jon Voight & Marcheline Bertrand

Not exactly the thesis of this blog, but these two are SO CLEARLY Angelina Jolie’s parents like, wow genetics. If you put these two faces into that “baby predictor” app you would literally get Angelina Jolie.

My new fav actress. On the left, 17-year-old Go Ah-sung as Gil Pul-ip in Master of Study. 
On the right, 20-year-old Go Ah-sung as 17-year-old Yona in Snowpiercer.
Snowpiercer is, for the record, SO GREAT. And she is the best part of it.

CORRECTION
My initial post about Brandon Mychal Smith accidentally included an image of another actor from Gridiron Gang, Jade Yorker, rather than Brandon Mychal Smith. My apologies to both actors for this error.
Can anyone help me find an actual picture of Brandon Mychal Smith, aged 17, in Gridiron Gang?
In any case, above is a pic of Brandon Mychal Smith looking awesome, aged 20, as a teenager on Sonny With A Chance.
Thanks, and my apologies!!

Thomas Brodie Sangster

This is Game of Thrones so the age could be a little off.

Sangster at 24 as Jojen Reed in Game of Thrones. The character in the books is 14. Age not given in show.

Related: my post on Game of Thrones age fuckery. The moral of the story is basically, the show has dragons, so weird aging is really the least weird thing about it.
