Double Take: Best Young-to-Old Casting


ALTJosh Brolin‘s name has been on everyone’s lips lately, and for good reason: His performance as a young Agent K in Men in Black 3 was remarkable, and not only because he can furrow his brow as effectively as Tommy Lee Jones (see image on left).

Brolin nailed everything from K’s taciturn demeanor to his melodic southern drawl — and the critics have definitely noticed. When sat down with Will Smith earlier this month, he said that the success of the film depended almost entirely on Brolin’s performance, and we can’t help but agree.

But Brolin is just the latest in a historic line of double-takes: From Zachary Quinto in Star Trek to Mila Kunis in Gia, take a look at’s picks for some of the best double-takes in recent film history. (Note: Sorry, Jamie Lynn Spears, it doesn’t count when you’re playing your almost identical older sister.)
