Old children

I agree with Mr Mel. After seeing recent photos of child laborers looking like they were still children, here is another picture of a child who looks like he has no youth left in him.

12 going on 40.

And the character behind him, rather intense looking.

D'oh!

Isn't that James Finlayson on the left?
