Scott Bakula: A Man of a Certain Age

Telling most actors that they look fit enough to play a role younger than their real age would be considered a compliment. Unless you're Scott Bakula. This season, on his TNT series Men of a Certain Age, the 56-year-old's character turns 50. And he's actually rather bummed about the idea.

"Nobody's written that Bakula shouldn't be in this show because he's too old, yet I've thought that," he explains. "What if somebody says, 'You're older than the other guys. I don't buy the story'? It's brought a lot more focus on my age in [show] business than I've ever felt."

Despite his concern, it's not like the second season of this series about three middle-age friends coming to terms with their lives is going to seem like Betty White clubbing with the cast of Gossip Girl. If anything, he's probably in trouble for looking too young.
