** Well, Schulze was still in his twenties at least. Diesel, however, passed pretty well for 24-year old Toretto. (Many have jokingly attributed [[OneOfUs Diesel's]] younger appearance compared to his real age to his love for ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''.) However, the actors for Tokyo Drift easily stand out as people older than their character's ages, Dawson Casting at it's damn-near worst.
