15 Movie Characters Whose Young and Adult Versions Fit Together Like a Puzzle

Nothing ruins a movie more than sloppy casting. We all know that frustrating feeling when we’re watching a great movie but then flashback to the hero’s childhood and see a young actor that looks nothing like its older counterpart. It immediately takes us out of the movie and leaves a bad taste in our mouths. Thankfully, there are casting directors who meticulously do their job so that our viewing experience isn’t spoiled by unfamiliar faces.
