    Michael Landes (Scott) is 9 years older than Krysten Ritter (Chloe).

    The actor's real life ages are not the same as their characters ages. On Glee there is a 30 year old playing 18. Another example on Mike & Molly a grandson and grandmother in the show, are only 6 years different in age.


    Old actors playing young and young actors playing old is very common in Hollywood, like on Golden Girls, the woman who played Dorthy's mother was in real life 1 year younger than the woman who played Dorthy. Actors real life age has nothing to do with the show.

    I'm well aware of mutton playing lamb. Kerr Smith (Jack from Dawson's Creek) was 26 when he started on the Creek as a high-school student in 1998, and is now 40, while Meredith Monroe was 29 at the same time, and is now 43. The other "kids" from Dawson's are now in their early-mid 30s (eg: James VDB is 35, Joshua Jackson is 34). Gabrielle Carteris was 29 when she started on BH 90210 in 1990, playing a 16 year old - she's now 51.


    However, a 9 year gap between actors playing father and daughter still weird. Let me put it this way: they say that your dating range is half your age plus seven. Michael Landes could date Krysten Ritter, and it wouldn't even be near the borderline of that rule
