Let the record show: We love the McKinley High New Directions and are more than willing to suspend our disbelief for as many seasons as creator Ryan Murphy allows them to be on the show. (Although, to be fair, we are kind of glad he's forcing some of the seniors to graduate, lest this turn into some ridiculous Dawson's Creek scenario where they're all just in high school forever, and then all of a sudden, we flash forward in time and Jen's dead, and none of us know how or why we got there... Oops! Um, spoiler alert? We digress.)
Anyway, the reality is, most of the actors playing high school students on Glee are in their mid to late 20s, and now that we’re well into Season 3.... some of them are starting to show their age a bit. Is it just us?
Who do you think still passes for a high schooler on Glee? Here’s who does and doesn't makes the grade, in our book:
The theater geek
The dancer's girlfriend
The good girl (gone bad)
The (reformed?) bully
Mark Salling (Puck): Don't get us wrong, we don't want that eye candy going anywhere (plus, wasn't Puck supposed to have been held back like three years anyway?), but there’s a reason why him carrying on a maybe affair with his substitute teacher doesn’t creep us out the way it should. Definite... FAIL!
