Think about it and you come to see that actors can potentially keep on working until the day they die unlike their 'regular' peers who reach pension age and are promptly put out to pasture or sentenced to the allotment, or the old folks' home with Bubba Ho-Tep, or told that coming out of retirement for 'one last job' is only an available option for movie cops.

Old heroes are back and teamed with youngs in Marvel comeback event, Generations
Though, of course, this is very superficial thinking and in line with the anti-image-obsessed culture rant I've already had in this column, I'd like to celebrate being happy just the way you are. Age discrimination is present in Hollywood but I'd also say that there are powers challenging it - defying stereotypes and prejudices - and doing good work for those who aren't quite spring chickens anymore.
Though I've never understood why anyone would want to be a spring chicken because spring chickens usually end up in sinister petting zoos or in a carton of McNuggets. The Expendables franchise is a pertinent specimen to study, especially now that the third instalment of the series has just dropped into theatres with big weapons, big explosions and an even bigger main cast.
The majority of that cast are action movie veterans and most are over fifty so the cumulative age tally is also very big. Harrison Ford Max Drummer is Regardless of the years and the mileage, though, all these golden oldies are still looking fresh, still in incredible shape, still having a blast literally and still making action movies just like back in the day.
Whether their recent work rates as highly, earns as much and resonates as strongly as the classics isn't really relevant - the key thing is that these guys are still working hard and exerting a presence instead of fading into old age obscurity or dreary dotage as would probably be expected. What's more, when it comes to exalting seasoned screen figures, The Expendables series isn't an isolated phenomenon. Glance over other franchises and you'll find more grandfather-vintage gentlemen getting glory as elderly action heroes, like Patrick Stewart in the X-Men multiverse and his best mate Ian McKellen who has become the living manifestation of Magneto and Gandalf in Peter Jackson's cinematic Middle Earth.
For further examples look to, say, Geoffrey Rush and Bill Nighy in the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies and the majority of an entire generation of ancient British acting nobility in the Harry Potter series. Sir Christopher Lee - years-young and still making heavy metal records - is both Count Dooku of the Star Wars universe and Saruman of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies. By securing themselves a place in major multimedia franchises, these actors engrain themselves in contemporary pop cultural consciousness, thus ensuring that they both remain relevant and endear themselves to a whole new generation of young cinemagoers who may even buy their action figure or Lego duplicate.
The lucrative late-career path first followed by Sir Alec Guinness as Ben Kenobi in Star Wars is even more of a typical trajectory in this age dominated by super-franchises. At this present moment, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the hottest party in town, and you can see how many 'old' heads are enjoying themselves by becoming a part of the mythos - Samuel L Jackson, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sir Ben Kingsley and Robert Redford just a select few.
The Force is strong with these ones, in spite of the numbers on their birth certificate. Another Star Wars alumnus provides perhaps the most potent demonstration of how older stars can enjoy a later-career resurgence when they reconfigure themselves as an action hero and find fresh life in zesty genre films. Following his lightsabre-waving stint as Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace, the Mighty Liam Neeson went on to dabble in a little bit of gang fighting Gangs Of New York , ninja fighting Batman Begins and crusader knight fighting Kingdom Of Heaven before carving a niche for himself as a cult bruiser whose name and reputation as a go-to action gruff is the core of so many recent action films.
Watch these films and your foremost thoughts will be a repeated mantra along the lines of "oh my, Liam Neeson is such a hard bad-ass". I can still buy Harrison Ford as a lead action hero who needs a new Indiana Jones? Jackie Chan may have been around forever but I don't honestly believe that the chopsocky legend is anywhere near the end of his shelf-life.
The same is true for Arnie, Sly and Bruce Willis. There's no reason why these icons can't keep on fronting action flicks, and they needn't be wry movies that really play up the old age angle either. Aptly enough, The Expendables 3 has arrived on the same week as my birthday. I celebrated by reading Adventure Time comics, so clearly I'm still young at heart I've had those inevitable angsty moments about the swift passage of time but, on reflection, I observed that I'm still under half the age of many of the Expendables.
They're not doing so bad and have a lot of life left in 'em, so perhaps our fears about growing older really are nothing more than a crock of shit. I'm too young for this shit, and so are all actors as long as they're alive and still have their talent and will to make motion pictures and play interesting parts. In line with Hokusai's proactive attitude quoted at the beginning of this article, I'd urge those who find themselves at a mature age to keep on going, because there is no upper age limit in art and entertainment and excellence isn't the soul preserve of the young.
In fact, it's probably more likely to be the opposite. I hope that cinemagoers and studios see that.
