The problem isn't the artificial timeline, but the reality of the appearance of the actors. The "kid" looks like he's 30, and Fraiser looks like he's 35-40. They could have at least found a guy who looked younger.
It isn't that uncommon for actors to play characters younger or older than them. The actor who played adult Alex looks "young enough" for a movie world early-20s.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
