There’s also something a lot less serious people on Twitter are talking about: How most of the cast members on the show ― specifically 26-year-old Ross Butler ― are way too mature-looking to play high schoolers.
Butler, who plays high school jocks on both “13 Reasons Why” and the CW’s “Riverdale,” has prom-king good looks but let’s be honest here: on what planet does a sophomore high schooler look like this? (And if you know, please send 15-year-old us there in a time machine.)
To illustrate what a typical high school student looks like, people are posting hilarious compare-and-contrast photos of themselves and the Asian American actor.
