  • Dawson Casting:
    • Impressively averted with the three Gold kids, all of whom were played by actors just a year older than their characters:
      • Kyle Sullivan was 17 playing 16-year-old Larry.
      • Kaylee DeFer was 18 playing 17-year-old Hillary.
      • Dean Collins was 15 playing 14-year-old Mike.
    • But played straight (ironically enough) by Rami Malek, who played 16-year-old Kenny starting at the age of 24.
      • His eventual boyfriend Dylan, who is 18, is played by 22-year-old Jackson Rathbone.
