The actor provides examples of:
- Dawson Casting:
- He was 17 years old playing a tween character in All the Pretty Horses.
- Was 21 years old playing a high school quarterback in Friday Night Lights.
- Also played the high school student Sean Boswell in The Fast and the Furious. When Tokyo Drift was filmed, Black was already 23 years old. Taken to a ridiculous level when he reprised his role for Furious 7, which chronologically takes place immediately after Tokyo Drift but filmed 8 years later, making him a 31-year-old playing a high school student.
