* In ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'', the character [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Tommy]] was only supposed to be 25. But because of a little DawsonCasting, and a {{Retcon}} that made him three years younger, the actor was 30 at the time of filming, so the character was played as slightly older than he should have been. However, [[OlderThanTheyLook he didn't look it]].

* The later part of Creator/ClintEastwood's career has been [[CoolOldGuy him playing the over-the-hill, but still extremely badass, hero]]. For a more concrete example, he noticeably ages throughout the ''Film/DirtyHarry'' series (and it's lampshaded). Indeed, Clint has stated that there won't be another ''Dirty Harry'' movie, because at his age, Harry would be retired. Doesn't stop a lot of people from dubbing ''Film/GranTorino'' [[SpiritualSequel "Dirty Harry 6"]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', baseball player Mike Scioscia made a guest star appearance in season 3. He later returns in season 22, with a much older appearance, while the rest of the Simpsons remain under the perpetual [[NotAllowedToGrowUp floating timeline]]. In addition, because celebrities are linked to pop culture and are not established characters in the Simpsons series, they are exempt from the floating timeline. However, this does not apply to recurring celebrities like StephenHawking and UsefulNotes/RupertMurdoch.

** Desmond Llewelyn played Q in seventeen different films, appearing as the character in every single EON ''Bond'' film starting in ''Film/FromRussiaWithLove'' in 1963, and making his exit in ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' in 1999.

* Finn from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' started as 12 [[ChildrenVoicingChildren with a similar-aged actor]], and ages as the show goes along. However, while he started aging in almost real time (his thirteen birthday was just before the show's first anniversary), the passage of time [[NotAllowedToGrowUp gradually slows]] to the point where Finn is still 16 as his voice actor enters his twenties.
