That's the guy that plays Honey in the movie? I had to look him up, he's 23. I don't get it, why cast someone that old to play a character that's supposed to look like a little kid? No wonder people are so hard on the casting.

I was thinking more about the distinct lack of blond hair in that image, myself.

I'm used to live action adaptations not bothering with hair color, but the age... Talk about not trying.

I saw the Ouran tv series, and it wasn't bade. In the first few episodes they did this thing where Honey would go super deformed, and be small, but to be honest, it was creepy as hell, and I am glad they stopped.

I was more shocked to find out this is the same guy that played Alata/GoseiRed in the 2010 Super Sentai, Goseiger.

Whaat?

It's common for a lot of older people to be cast as younger characters.
Look at Buffy. Xander's actor was 27 years old and he was cast as a high school character. :/

He has a young looking face, IMO. I didn't think the casting was bad at all.
