He became too old to play a teen - Why Hollywood won't cast Chad Michael Murray anymoreHe became too old to play a teen

At some point within every teen actors career, they become too old to be considered for those bread-and-butter roles. Although Hollywood is notorious for casting slightly older actors in teen-central roles (to avoid child labor laws), there comes a point when an actor can no longer play a believable teenager. One of Murray's Hollywood challenges was that his breakout teen role happened when he was already rapidly approaching that invisible "too old" red line. Murray was already in his twenties when he was cast on OTH. At the time, he still had the youthful appearance to pull off the teenage role, but when he left the show, he had arguably aged out of the teen TV genre, thus eliminating the type of work he was best known for and thrusting him into career limbo.

If you think about it, how many actors successfully break out of teen shows such as Beverly Hills 90210 (1990-2000) or Awkward (2001-16)? Murray's OTH co-stars didn't fare much better breaking into the A-list. Not everyone can embody a Stacey Dash, who played 16-year-old Dionne in Clueless (1994) at age 29 or hit the post-show jackpot like most of the stars in Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000).
