^^^ that's righta. Actors are not average-looking people to begin with.
Some of them are, but they usually don't get the film and tv jobs and stay in theatre.

On Community I would have guessed mid to high 40s if I didn't know better.
I'm just glad Burton and his non-celebrity friend are doing well after their ordeal being captured by pirates.

Stewart started out playing a man about ten years older than himself - he was in his mid-40s when he started shooting TNG, and Picard was described as being in his mid-50s.
Exactly! Stewart aged into the ages of the characters he played, which is why he doesn't look like he's aged much. He played older characters from the get-go.
What a neat trick!

Then you have Wilford Brimley, who looked 60 when he was in his 40's.

Michael Dorn and Tim Russ look their age. It's not only for the face. Burton always had a "young" voice.
