I think he seems a bit old for the part they were talking about as a love interest for Melanie. It was clear they were looking for somebody in the 25 year old age range who was age appropriate for Melanie. But, he is a hotty, so that's always a plus.
I just can't stand the thought of Melanie ruining another hot man over 30, so, let's hope for the best case scenario of this guy being cast as someone else or not getting the part and/or Melanie's new love interest actually being someone else no older than 25.
Well, 25 is the age of the character but nobody says the actor couldnīt be older. Per IMDB he was born in august 81, so that makes him 28. And Molly is 21. Thatīs the same age difference they are aiming for with the characters (18 Melanie, 25 Nathan).

But nobody says he will get the part. This is probably just his agent giving echo to mags so there is some positive fan reaction which could help him to win.
It doesn't matter to me what the age of the character is. I'm sure Brady isn't supposed to be 38, for example, but EM looks at least mid-30s to me (not in a bad way). JKJ certainly looks a solid 30, as does JS, and to me Molly is plausibly late teens. I don't like the age and maturity differences. If this guy looks 25, fine, but if he looks older than that it will still bother me. I've never seen him before so I don't know, I'm just going by what's in this thread.
